These updates are just getting better and better. From the owner of Chanel, now Junebug (what a great name!):
I've finally had a chance to upload some photos and wanted to let you know how one of your rescues is doing.
Junebug, who used to be Chanel--Fred's Miss December--is a total social butterfly. She really hasn't met a dog she doesn't like. Only a couple aren't so crazy about her but she never holds a grudge. Wrestling with dogs twice her size is among her favourite activities. She's grown very long and now weighs about 35 pounds. She'll occasionally grab at ankles but it seems to be her signal that she wants to play (or that she's mad that she has to go on her leash or can't play with a dog). She's also a big stick eater. She gobbles up the little ones like popcorn and likes to brandish the big ones like a kendo master. She's pretty smart and did well at puppy class (though she'd master her tricks and then try to play with all the other, slower, dogs.)
Whenever someone approaches, Junebug sits pretty and puts on her best ears. If by some chance the person walks by without telling her how lovely she is, she becomes a tad dejected. Fortunately, there aren't many people who are immune to her copious charms so I haven't had to resort to pimping for her. (Though every once in a while, I'll ask a passerby if she can say hi.)
The newest game in town is guess what breed she is. We've been told collie, sheltie, shepherd, golden retriever, yellow Lab, husky, chow and hound. I'm considering the DNA test, but I'm pretty sure it will come back and all I'll be told is that she's a dog.
But she's a lovely, lovely dog--one who has been a great comfort to me because I lost my partner unexpectedly last month. I tell everyone who asks that they should consider visiting you if they're looking for a dog. So if you have an influx of patrons from Scarborough, Junebug is responsible. She is truly a great ambassador.
Best regards and thanks for taking such good care of her before we found one another.
