This winsome face belongs to Melissa, a delightful 1-1 1/2 years old pit mix.
She loves food treats and is very attentive – she already knows ‘sit’!
It also seems that she also knows how to wait patiently while I take her photos.
She also loves people and is always looking for an excuse to get closer to you.
She loves being petted and being snuggled.
She looks quite comfortable there, doesn’t she?
When she’s very happy, Melissa looks like this.
Wouldn’t it be great to come home to this face every day?
Melissa also loves toys- she loves to toss them in air and chase after them.
Or to see if I will give chase (no thanks! I love you, Melissa, but I already had my workout!).
That’s okay, because she’s fine with playing by herself.
The squeaker won this time, but Melissa vows to come back for a rematch.
But first, bellyrubs! This is Melissa’s most favorite thing- warm grass, abundant sunshine, and bellyrubs!
You can tell she LOVES them.
“Why don’t you humans join me? It’s so nice here!” “I don’t know, honey. Pollen?”
“Oh pooh, you funny humans. Well, more space for me!”
To see Melissa in action, with playing, bellyrubbing, and general mellowing, here are two videos:
