This is Lue!
He was rescued by my friends, well by my girlfriend. She went to a shelter just to look (never a good idea) and he chose her. Pretty much yelling HEY YOU! YES YOU! I BELONG WITH YOU! She couldn’t leave him behind and so left with him that day hoping that her husband would be okay with it. He was. LUE is happily settled into his new home and totally has the house trained.
He is such a loveable wonderful happy boy and watching him run along the beach, playing in the surf is such a joy!
My name is Claire and I am a dog whore. It’s a problem. I get puppy envy all the time, I hug strange dogs and can’t stop myself form rubbing a dogs belly at every opportunity. LUE gave me my fill of hugs and belly rubs, he’s only a year old but is so well behaved. Wonder if he could come visit and teach my basset Kingsley some manners.
This is Spirit:
My friend adopted her about a month ago. She wasn’t looking for a dog. She was just donating towels to the Humane society and then wandered through to look at the animals. She stopped when she saw Spirit, her daughter stopped when she saw Spirit.
They were not looking for a dog. The family had lost Spanner last year, an adorable, fun loving Jack Russell that had been in the family for sixteen years. After Spanner she didn’t think she wanted another dog. Another dog could not replace Spanner. Until Spirit (who will not replace Spanner but will be another chapter).
Spirit had been found, starving, with a bad front leg that had been broken and hadn’t heeled properly. They managed to save the leg and bring her back to health.
My friend tried to forget about her but Spirit would not be forgotten. She even showed up in her dreams. Monday rolled around and my friend announced to her husband that they had to go and get her dog. Spirit is her dog. Spirit follows her pays attention to her and is making herself right at home with the family.
Spirit is having the normal puppy accidents inside, has chewed several shoes and the couch. She’s really sorry (I think this is her forgive me face):
She is leaving hair everywhere and my friend doesn’t care, in fact she couldn’t be happier and Spirit is so happy to have a forever home and is repaying the favour by bringing the joy of a new puppy to the family. Look how good she can be (Look at her not chewing anything!):
Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL! (I totally have puppy envy)
