12/31/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When another volunteer touches her heart and tells me what a dream a dog is, well you know I have to meet her. A dream doesn’t begin to describe this sweet, sometimes shy, always loving little redhead. I’m in love. Tyra has fabulous leash manners, seems to be housetrained, likes to chase the birds ( I let her think that) and watch them fly, never stops wagging her tail, is impossibly camera shy, loves, loves, loves to cuddle and uses her paws to suggest that I not stop petting her. Meeting new people with an enthusiastic tail wag, she wins everyone over quickly with a kiss and a cuddle. She’s an awesomely gentle little girl who is at that perfect age. I see her curled up on the couch helping her person watch his or her favorite TV show, or reading a favorite book. Her place is by your side and there is no place she’d rather be. Wrapped up in the cutest little package of lush fur, Miss Tyra is hoping you’ll stop by to meet her today.
