I adopted Rosie in May of 2013. I saw her at the farmer’s market that they have downtown and managed to talk my mom into fostering her. I really wanted to adopt her, but we already had 3 dogs and I wasn’t sure how it would work out. I remember crying all the way to her first adoption event after we fostered her. After mom and I dropped her off, I made a deal with her. If Rosie was still there after the adoption event, she was mine….The rest, as they say, is history. Why I love Rosie: She makes me smile every day. I know that all I have to do is say her name and she’ll come running. She greets me at the door every night when I get back from work. Whenever I look her in the eyes, all I see is love. She steals the best spot on the bed every night and uses her entire body to take up more space than should by physically possible. She means a lot to me and I love her very very much.
Was Adopted in August 2013
Why I love Trixie: She is the world’s best cuddler! She’ll never say no to a warm lap or a tap on the couch. She also has the sweetest face. Sometimes, when you look at her, you can see this contentment in her eyes that always makes me smile…..I also love how she can destroy a squeaky toy in under a minute. We’ve managed to find two that have lasted about 6 months so we’re hoping they last longer.
Diego / Edgar
When we first got Edgar, he was about 25 pounds and was underweight. We had agreed to foster him for 2 weeks at the beginning of November for Homeward Bound. By day two, I knew we had a problem. Mom and I debated for several days about if we should ask to adopt him or not. We asked and, due to some unforeseen circumstances, we adopted him.He now weighs about 40 pounds and has been put on a diet. (We were a little too good at feeding him). Edgar is my mother’s flower child. He loves sitting out in the backyard an watching the trees. He can spend all day outside just watching. He is Rosie’s best friend and you can often find the two of them wrestling in the house or the backyard.
