stories from Mutts
& Moms adoptions.
Hi Mutts & Moms,
I was just browsing the Mutts & Moms website and naturally
had to click on Happy Tales and I noticed how
sad & mistrustful Louie looked in his adoption photo. Well,
no more! Im sending photographic proof that Louie is indeed
a happy dog now. J Hes amazingly good natured, and loves everyone
he meets. Hes especially popular with the 5 & under set:
when I walk him, little kids will yell PUPPY! and run
over to pet him, and Louie, bless him, thinks thats just great,
and doesnt mind toddlers poking at him. His Christmas trip
to New Jersey went off without a hitch, and since then hes
been on many adventures came face to face with a sea lion
in Monterey, summited a fifteen-foot boulder in Idyllwild, and leaped
headlong into the Colorado River in pursuit of a duck (luckily,
we discovered he could swim). His indoor hobbies include cuddling,
playing tug-the-towel, knocking all the cushions off the sofa, and
trying to sneak onto my bed when he thinks Im not looking.
Incidentally, he is also the only dog Ive ever met who actually
chases his own tail. Were still working on some of the finer
points of training (for example, Louie is certain heel
does not apply if there is a cat, lizard, or an especially interesting
shrub in the vicinity) but he goes into his crate on command, and
if he sees me reaching for the treat jar, he plunks his fluffy butt
down on the floor in a hurry.
Yes. As you can see, Louie is my favorite topic of conversation,
and I have a hard time stopping once I get started. But the whole
point of this e-mail originally was just to say hi, tell you that
Louie was doing well, and that Mutts & Moms made an excellent
choice in rescuing him. Hes such a loving little guy, and
I cant imagine my world without him.
Keep up the good work!!
Louie was a very sad dog at
the shelter. He was horribly matted and covered with fleas (see
"before & after" page). He was adopted by his new
Mom, Colleen. He now has a forever home where he will be loved an
cherished as he should be.
