A Little Bit About Me…
A volunteer writes: Yes, as sweet as….. And so shy, but so loving and ready to make friends. She’s adorably tiny, her one blue eye and one hazel eye making soft, but confused eye contact, as this is not the place or people she knows. But Honey is game, ready for a walk to go potty, great on leash, and ignoring yapping dogs we pass. She allows me to put a coat on her against the cold, but still shivers as we cuddle close on the bench for a sweet kiss or two or three; she’s always gentle, always tentative but clearly ready to love. Honey shows off her sit, and although she’s too thin in my opinion, gently takes my offered treats. She comes when I call her, tail wagging slightly. Honey is so appropriately named as she’s golden and sweet and ready to gently flow into your life. A senior lady who needs a soft bed, good nutritional food, love, safety and security (a mani/pedi would help too), she’s the perfect companion with whom to cuddle. Come meet her, you’ll fall in love as I did.
