08/19/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Precious…I can’t think of a better name for our angel-in-dogs-clothing than this. She’s a priceless hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered, an absolute gem any family would be so lucky to welcome into their life. Lots of treats, a cushy bed and endless snuggles are her rightful rewards but it’s clear from her current condition that (as one of my favorite poets says) life for her ‘ain’t been no crystal stair’. Despite that, her loving light simply refuses to be dimmed. While she’s shy and timid at first, after a few minutes of gentle caresses, soft endearments and tasty snacks, she offers me tiny tail wags and sweet cheek kisses in return. When we toddle off for a walk, she’s fabulous on leash too, never straying from my side and doing all her business tout suite, a perfect little lady. Other dogs are met politely both inside and out, and whatever her previous interactions with fellow canines might have been, they’ve had no ill effect on her naturally peaceful nature. Precious may have faced hard times, but like the poem says, she’s ‘still goin’ honey…still climbin’ and having earned a fantastic rating on her behavior tests, this darling girl is more than ready to snuggle her way right into the heart of a brand new forever family. Life for Precious can still be a crystal stair…she just needs a little help getting there.
