A volunteer writes: Clark (Kent) is looking for a phone booth in which to change into his Superdog cape. Sadly, phone booths are hard to find these days. But he’s a Superdog nonetheless, and a proud member of the frosted face club earning that badge of distinction at 11 years young. Clark was curled up on his bed napping when I approached, but stood quickly at my invitation to join me for a walk. Just call me Lois Lane :). His leash manners are fabulous, he seems to be housetrained, and wags his tail when I pet him. Enjoying some treats, Clark struggled with a sit, maybe due to some arthritis, but was valiant in his effort to show off. Clark joined us when his family, which included two children, moved out of state to a place not allowing canine family. Clark’s coat is clean and lush, he’s superbly gentle, turned to me when I called his name, and lit up when he saw a squeaky toy. Clark doesn’t need his Superdog cape to show you how amazing he is. He simply is. He’d love a new home in which to spend his golden years, and I’m keeping everything crossed that he finds it. There’s nothing to equal the love of a senior who you’ve welcomed into you heart. Clark is ready to prove it.
