  • Animals Best Friends recently received a letter from one of our adoptees and we wanted to share it with you.
    Back in January 2011, Mom Yvette took me on a ride to the city. None of my siblings were with me, but it was nice to be by myself. I wasn’t too sure where we were going because we stopped on the way and picked up Dianne, which was kind of strange. We headed south to Grandview, a place I had not been before.
    We pulled into the driveway of this really nice looking house. When I got out of the truck, I was a little scared since I really wasn’t sure where I was at. We walked up the stairs and Mom rang the doorbell. This lady opened the door and let us in. I was hesitant to go in because Mom always told me not to talk to strangers.
    I went up a few stairs into the living room. It certainly was a big place. I walked around for a few minutes just to see what was up, but I was still scared so I jumped up on the couch and sat next to Mom and Dianne. Mom told me to get down, but this nice lady, Peggy, said it was OK for me to stay where I was at. She said if I was going to be staying around for a couple of weeks, I had to be comfortable on my own.
    Peggy had some toys around, but I was not interested in playing. She did give me a treat which was pretty tasty. I let her pet me and stroke me and it seemed to be OK. She did tell me I looked very sweet. We walked around the house a bit so Mom and Dianne could see where I would be staying during the day, as well as the queen size bed Peggy was going to let me sleep in at night.
    All four of us went out in the back yard. I was sure surprised with the size of the yard, but it seemed it was plenty big to run around in, all by myself.
    We went back in the house and Mom and Dianne explained a few things to Peggy. Shortly afterwards Mom and Dianne walked down the stairs and left without me. I sat up on the couch, looked out the window and watched them drive off without me.
    Peggy took a couple of days off work to spend with me and get to know me. Then we had quite the snowstorm, so Peggy worked from home for a couple of extra days. That was just so cool!
    The two-week trial had come and gone and Mom came back with adoption papers. Yes, that is right. Peggy loved me so very much she wanted to give me a home, a ‘furever’ home. She then changed my name from Cammy Sue to Snuggles.
    Page 2 of 2 - Now it is two years later and I am enjoying life with my new Mom and my new home. We take walks almost every day and we go on rides every once in a while too. I still sleep in the queen size bed every night. I guess you could say I am one happy dog and not to say just a wee bit spoiled not only by Mom, but Mom’s friends too! Written with love, from Snuggles.
