11/20/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: When I first met Yale, I liked him a lot. He had all the makings of a great family dog-He walks nicely on the leash, seems housetrained and sits on command. He has such a distinguished face-a little bit of white that lets you know he’s had a couple years under his belt and is more of the calm, easy going nature. But it wasn’t until our second encounter that I got to see him really shine! After a walk to relieve himself, I let him loose in the yard and he was more puppy than middle-aged gent! Who knew he was such an athlete? Yale will run after a ball with gusto, bring it back to you and drop it on command. After he drops it, he will even steady the ball with one paw, so that it doesn’t roll away, until you pick it up and start the process all over again. What a guy! And if you get bored of that game, he’ll give you a run for your money in playing tug with a rope toy. And when I’d let go, he’d prop himself up onto me, toy in his mouth, smiling, begging me to play again. I think he let me win a couple of times, just so I’d keep playing. Yale is definitely one of those types that there’s more than meets the eye. Ask to meet him today so you can find out just what I mean!
