Why is Your Pet "Rescued (or Stray) and Unforgettable"?
Oh, my precious boy rescued me! It was love at first sight. When I went in to St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center, I was "just looking". I had newly relocated and wanted a friend. I discovered him cowering and shaking from head to toe in the back corner of a quarantine cage; he had only just arrived a couple of hours prior to my visit. They said no touching and no fingers in the cage. He broke my heart so badly, he was so scared, that I opened the cage and took him in my lap! That was that. I couldn't take him home for a week though, due to neutering and vaccinating and such.
Booker never left my side after that! He knew we were safe together. He was smart, loyal, faithful, and most of all, the most loveable. He was just a year old when I adopted him. His back story is that he was turned in because he was being aggressive to their other dog. A SAINT BERNARD! Wait-he is a twenty-pound little herding puppy and your 120-pound Saint Bernard is scared of him?
I would take Booker everywhere with me. When we would go to the dog park he never really wanted to play with the other dogs. But, after about 10 minutes, I would notice that he was herding all the big dogs into a small circle. He would then come and sit next to me as if to say, "Look, Mommy, look what I did!"
I entered him in a Corgi herding class. Booker didn't win "best herding dog" but he did win "best Corgi butt!!" I had him by my side for twelve years and have since had another, but there will never be another BOOKER! I miss him every single day.
