I have been working at Little Shelter for a few months now. Hopefully, I won’t be there for too much longer. It has been a fun experience but I am ready for something more challenging. Also… I’m moving back to PA! 🙂
We recently received a “shipment” of 30+ dogs from Texas. I have absolutely fallen in love with this 3-year old pup named Little Foot. I am typically not a fan of little dogs (I like them large) but this little precious has stolen my heart. He is extremely nervous; his body shakes and his eyes are full of fear. But today I really bonded with him (and gave him one too many treats) and now he perks up and wags his tail every time he sees me.
Another favorite of mine is the pup in the photo above, “Sonji.” Sadly, he was adopted yesterday before I got a chance to say goodbye! I’m happy he has found a wonderful home.
If you can’t tell by the photos, I have a thing for blondies. I know, I’m totally biased.
Harley is another cutie. She’s still here but I’m sure she won’t be for long. I like to refer to her as “Harley Quinn” in my head.
Last night I had a dream about a chihuahua named Vinny who had just arrived at Little Shelter around the same time that I started working there. He was adopted a few weeks later. I had a dream I was playing with him and cuddling with him. He was one of my favorites, and after the dream, I realized how much I really adored that dog. When you work with animals, you form relationships with them. It both hurts and heals my heart to meet these little souls and become attached to them as soon as they get adopted. I won’t lie, some dogs are total brats and I can’t wait to see them leave. And then there are those few dogs that I can’t help but fall in love with. It feeds my soul.
