Birthday: January 1st 2010
Likes: Being with Mommy! She loves her walks & chases squirrels - where did they go, Mommy? She also loves to be brushed & pampered.
Pet-Peeves: Being left alone
Favorite Toy: Fetching my squeaky balls!
Favorite Food: Blue Buffalo Lamb & Brown Rice. And of course, treats! I also love baby carrots & apples.
Favorite Walk: Anywhere with Mommy. Around the neighborhood, in the park, the beach.
Best Tricks: Getting her way, of course! And sit, stay, give me paw - she rolls over on her own! And she likes to lick Mommy's legs although Mommy didn't teach her that !!!!!
Arrival Story: A friend told me about a rescue group, Abandoned Angels. I went on-line & there was Cinnamon (aka Shirley Temple). She was turned in as a stray in Manhattan to Animal Care & Control who transported her to to the rescue, Abandoned Angels. Who would ever abandon this sweet thing??? So we went to the Rescue to meet her. She was so sweet at our initial meeting. To be honest, I was & am still missing my Chloe so much that I played a bit with Cinnamon, walked her & then at the end of our interview told the shelter I had to think about it & would call them at the end of the day. I actually left! On the way home, not even an hour later, I thought "What if someone else adopts her ??? "
So we turned around & went back & now sweet Cinnamon is mine. She is so very sweet & loving & happy to have a home. She is very attached to me & I am loving every minute of it.
We were both so very lucky to find eachother :)
Bio: I don't know too much except that she is a beautiful 3 year old girl.
My sister, Angel Chloe went to the Rainbow Bridge 1 year ago today at 9:30 am.
Mommy has been very sad all day & even laid down on Chloe's pillow which we've kept. But toward the end, it smelled from pee pee because Chloe was 16 & it was time to go. Mommy didn't care - she felt closer to Chloe.
But she didn't want me to feel sad so she got up. And we are going to sleepy together.
I know that I will never be Chloe.
But I AM CINNAMON :)
Mommy & someone named "POP" adopted Chloe in 1997 from North Shore Animal League when she was 6 weeks old. Mommy remembers her biting and nibbling on her fingers all the way home. One day later, it was Chloe's house.
Now it's ours.
I had a different start... we don't know what it was except that I was abandoned at 3 1/2 years old & was, thank God, rescued as a stray - first by Animal Care & Control, then by Abandoned Angels, then by my Mommy.
I'm different than Chloe - she was playful & loved the snow. Mommy & Chloe used to go out at all hours of the night in the snow - Chloe would run in it & Mommy would throw a bit of snow on her face - she loved it! She loved to roll in the snow too!
I'm my own girl which I got from Chloe- I love my Mommy & I'm so grateful to have such a wonderful home. I love to play with my balls & my toys although I make Mommy throw AND fetch too sometimes! I don't like the snow - maybe because I'm smaller & so low to the ground - I just might get lost in all of it!
I definitely have become a bit of a Princess like my sister, Chloe! But I know when to say thank you & I'm so happy & content which makes Mommy feel good. When I sigh, she sighs.
I have kissed my Mommy's tears & we have both saved eachother. We sleep together - tushy to tushy, sometimes (her) hand-to-(my) mouth - & I thank God & Dawg that my Mommy has been able to love again.
