Adopted in 2008.
Paula and I cannot express in words how much we love Missy. The best kept secret in animal rescue is the adoption of an adult dog.
Her integration into our home has been virtually seamless. From the time we pulled away from Rachel, Missy was “our” dog. A quiet travelling companion, she made the trip without incident. After sniffing all of the new smells and getting acquainted, it was time for fetch the tennis ball. That game started last Sunday evening and continues yet today except for brief time outs for eating and sleeping. She sleeps quietly all night long at the side of our bed until she gets up to have coffee and a morning stroll about the grounds with me.
She has motivated me and we visit our local sports complex twice a day for the wooded walking trail. No begging, no chewing, no bad habits we can see.
Two of our three grandchildren visited today and immediately fell in love with her. Their visit gave me a chance to rest my arm from throwing the tennis ball!!!
As far as we are concerned, Missy has found her “forever” home. I think she feels the same way.
Thanks to both of you for all you do and if you don’t mind, I will keep you updated on Missy. If you ever have any questions about her, please do not hesitate to contact us.
