A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Sweet, bubbly, silky, creamy, bright, effervescent, balanced with a round finish. Just some of the wine tasting buzz words that clearly describe our little low rider Champagne. Of course, we need to add, she loves belly rubs, loves toys, loves playing tug, is housetrained when walked regularly and also knows how to use wee wee pads, lived with other dogs and 10 cats and was relaxed and respectful with all, is gentle with kids, doesn’t guard her things, and can be shy for a moment with new people but warms up quickly. As soon as Champagne entered the pen she picked up a toy and looked up at me with a big smile and a wagging tail. She rolled over for belly rubs, eyes sparkling, brought a toy over for a game of tug, and when it was time for a walk loved carrying her toy with her. Her leash manners are lovely, she ignored birds in our path, checks up while walking, as her pleasantly plump little rump rotates with her wagging tail. Champagne is a corporate volunteer helper dog because she’s so good with people. Rockstar! She’s adorably delicious, a great vintage aged to perfection, and ready to be the perfect accompaniment to everything you do. You can’t ask for more, can you?
