I’ve decided to let Delilah talk in her own voice–I thought she put her story in her own words better than I did. 🙂
I’m an unusual sort of mutt– I seem to have the sharpei wrinkles, boxer coloring and frame, and wiry fur of a terrier. You may have missed me because I’ve been recovering from a hurt paw at medical, and because I had to be thoroughly cleaned when I first came in-l was covered in tar (ugh!) and ticks (double ugh! that was one itchy time). But I’m all cleared, and I can now play and flirt with people (I LOVE people. I will do my best wiggle-butt dance every time you walk past me).
I’ve been told that I’m an absolute sweetheart, that I’m so patient and kind to put up with folks who cleaned me, but honestly, I don’t mind. I get to look all pretty and it was such a relief to have someone taking care of me, rather than me taking care of myself (I don’t exactly do a good job of that– I’m still under a year old, so I’m technically still a puppy).
Besides, there were treats! I love treats almost as much as I love people (I’m still trying to get used to this thing called a biscuit. They’re so hard compared to hot dogs), and I’ve been told I do a beautiful ‘sit.’ This should make me easy to train, but I’m also willing to learn– I’m so curious about this thing called a normal life that folks talk about, and I’m so ready for it.
This is what happens when my handler pays more attention to the camera than to me 😉
