on Apr 11th, 2007National Adopt a Puppy Day
Today, while walking to work, I was stopped by a nice gal from the ASPCA that informed me today was “National Adopt a Puppy Day”. I said thanks but twoÂ years ago, in January, we did adopt two puppies. We originally were just going to adopt one, but when I saw “the girls” online I said to my husband….how about two, they’re small??!!
They were all ready named Thelma (left) and Louise (right)…and we thought that it fit. Even thought they have not tried to jump off any cliffs…thank goodness. We are not sure of their exact birthday…we were told they were a year old but they grew after we adopted them…we figure they are around three years old. Thelma usually greets me with her stuffed squirrel in her mouth when I get home from work. Louise can be a bit nervous and sometimes barks at nothing at all. They are both amazingly alert and sometimes tussel with each other. Louise loves to watch TV…which is very funny….especially “The Dog Whisperer”. Cesar Milan would not approve that we let them sleep in bed with us…
So, if you can make the commitment to pet ownership, check you local shelter and give an animal a home. We adopted our “girls” from Animal Haven Shelter http://www.animalhavenshelter.org
