Happy Tales

Suki is shy no more

sukiI just wanted to send a quick note on our adoption from last night. I have to compliment how wonderful your center is, and how friendly and extremely helpful the staff was.

But the real reason is I want to mention the dog that we brought home: Skyy, whose name we have already changed to Suki.

There were apparently some fear/shyness issues while at the shelter, and I have to say that not even 24 hours later, Suki is like a completely different dog. She continually nuzzles us and wants all the attention she can get; she is not hiding one bit! She even got excited when one of her new cat sisters jumped over the gate, and she sniffed Ginger the cat all over!
