“Seattle’s Second Chance Shelter smelled of damp fur and dog breath. Frantic barks and whines pierced the air and assaulted Anna’s ears. She shrank back from the desperation that hung in the air like mist. All the sad eyes begging for a home. The furry foreheads rumpled with anxiety. Anna’s tender heart slid to her feet.
‘We shouldn’t have come here,’ she shouted to her boyfriend, Jeff.
‘You wanted to check out the dogs,’ he said.
Anna was clutching the Second Chance flyer she’d found that morning on Jeff’s windshield. Coming here had seemed the best way to goad themselves into action after weeks of talk about adopting a dog. But now, engulfed by the dogs’ distress, Anna wasn’t so sure.
‘We could have looked for a dog on Petfinder,’ she said. In their rented condo, they could have studied photos on the computer screen.
‘You can tell a lot more of you see a dog in person,’ Jeff said.
‘Yes, but I want to take all these dogs home.’
‘We can only afford to care for one.’”
Thank you for always being there for me no matter what. Thanks for rushing to my side when I called out for you, and holding me when I cried. Thank you for taking me to all my doctor/vet visits so that I stayed healthy. Thanks for teaching me important lessons, and helping me grow.
This week’s featured breed is the Pug! The adorable little dog with the wrinkled face, and loud snorting has captured our hearts time and time again. They are such playful and loving canine companions, and if you chat with any Pug owner, they will have endless cute photos of their precious pooch and happily tell you how wonderful the breed is. We are lucky enough to walk a few Pugs every day! We want to feature a brother and sister pair: Mason and Dixie!
“Dixie is bursting with pug love. She’s a friendly, patient pug and just wants to climb on you and give you kisses on your nose. She’s a snuggle bug, and will always be the one leading the pack and racing her way back home from her walk.
Mason is a feisty, bold pug with the most inquisitive expressions and a huge pug smile. Every day he comes charging at the door, only to turn around, go grab a toy, and then run right back.
They both LIVE for their peanut butter biscuits.”
-Hillary, Local Territory Manager
