I have been living with Ceci for a little over a month and I have gone from a quiet, shy puppy girl with a red itchy butt to a silly, full of energy, happy doggie. My butt still itches some, but it is getting better and I am always trying to run away from a bath or some ointment that Ceci wants to put on my skin ( it is getting better though).
I used to whine a lot when she would leave me even for a few minutes because I was scared she wasn’t going to come back. She always does. And she takes me to the beach, on runs with her on San Francisco hills – she can’t keep up with me (: and everyday to the dog park to try to make new friends and play ball.
What I have learned is that almost a year ago, Ceci lost her little doggie Maggie to cancer. She has pictures of Maggie everywhere and gosh darn it, I look a lot like her. I know I cant replace Maggie, but I try to make Ceci smile again. I listen to her commands, I snuggle with her at night and during Sunday afternoon naps, and I even bring her dead birds as presents. Ok, so she wasn’t crazy about the dead birds, but I really do try to make her happy. And Ceci smiles more nowadays and she has all these silly little names for me.
So, Elizabeth, I know Ceci wasn’t sure initially if she wanted to keep me. And I know there are other people that want to adopt me, but I think she would be sad again if I left. Is it Ok if I stay with her forever? I know she probably has to sign some papers and pay some fees, but I think she would be Ok with that.
I want to THANK YOU Elizabeth and your friends for rescuing me from that scary shelter. I never knew how good it could be. 🙂

(SCCR)Elizabeth definitely says yes to this sweetheart’s request.
