A volunteer writes: Looking for a refreshingly fun and delicious pup who’ll keep you smiling all day long? Meet Cucumber! On a crisp, cool day, I came upon this boy and…EARS! Obviously I couldn’t resist. Although he’d just returned from a walk, I was powerless against him (did I mention ears???) and had to take him for a spin myself. Boy, was I happy I did. Cucumber is a young, handsome lad and still learning the ways of the world. As we embark on our stroll to the park everything is of interest to our boy. Birds! Squirrels! People! Fire hydrants! (Particularly that last one.) Everything catches our cinnamon sweetheart’s eye and everything must be explored! Once we arrive at our destination, Cucumber really lets loose. While some may choose to contentedly relax on a scenic park bench…why? Why, when it can be made into a hurdle to jump, a gym to climb, or a silly structure made for a game of peek-a-boo? I’m laughing in no time, and I’m not alone. As our adorable goof launches his one-man show of adorable, a small crowd gathers, all stifling their giggles. Me? I’m a lost cause. I’m laughing to the point that my cheeks grow sore, and on our return walk, I can’t seem to lose the smile. In a pickle over how to cure those winter blues? Worry no more. Cucumber is waiting in adoptions at Manhattan’s ACC.
