A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Now, I can’t claim to be an aficionado of Kentucky Fried Chicken, but I do believe I’ve found the secret recipe to happiness and ever-lasting love. 1 year-old Colonel Sanders is considerably more youthful than his namesake would suggest (oh, and without that trademarked beard), but he is the creator of something completely and utterly addictive. Something that will tempt you constantly, please you endlessly, and only leave you craving more. Little Colonel Sanders (“C,” as I like to call him) is bursting with excitement at the prospect of a walk, eagerly trotting his vanilla paws, a bit worn and worse for the wear, out straight ahead of me as we make our way to the park on a beautiful pre-spring day. C pulls slightly on leash, an eager young “chick”, his sea-green eyes wide, and tends to his business straight away because tarrying, frankly, is for the birds. Soon we find a shady bench to pause upon, take a load off, rest our heads, and naturally snap some photos. And little Colonel is wholly unbothered, calm, and endlessly patient while tethered, wowing passersby with those stunning orbs. Colonel comes to us as a stray, so much of his past remains unknown. I know he loves his treats, sweetly nibbling them from my palm. That he could use more of them, maybe also a sudsy bubble bath to make his coat shine bright, and lots and lots of tender loving care, something he may not previously have known. I know he loves cuddles, snuggles, and hugs most of all. And that when he throws himself upon your lap and wraps his paws around you, it’s as if he could never ever be close enough, and you hug him back like he never could. Colonel is a young, energetic boy who would do best with an experienced family, one who can provide him with the activity and care he needs, and also work on his occasional over-arousal and on-leash frustration. He may not exactly be “finger-licking good,” but he is delicious and sweet. And while he may not fill your stomach full to the brim, he will fill your heart, leave you sated and smiling, and always yearning for more. Colonel Sanders is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan ACC.
