|That's Cookie laid out in front of that plastic|
|These first two pictures were taken as they|
were preparing to head back to Virginia. She's
obviously happy to be going along.
It's bad enough that humans were living in that sort of condition, but it's inexcusable to keep a dog like that. The owner was prepared to let the dog go and I was obviously going to agree to take her in.
She's well-mannered with dogs and people, and she showed no interest in the chickens running about her yard. Apparently she was a house dog at one time and a family pet but she's been living on a chain for the past two years. She's good on a leash and is trusting of strangers, although for the life I me I can't imagine why.
She went on a two mile hike with Maya and me this afternoon and was all smiles.
|Cookie getting checked over by Maya.|
|She waded into Sparky's watering hole and immediately|
laid down, bringing back that lovely wet dog smell.
|We are going to work on giving her|
more and more reasons to smile.
