Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Chance and I adopted Rose in the early part of November, and in that time she has already become irreplaceable. We can already tell that her favorite time of the year will be winter because of the snow. She will run out into the back yard and play for hours... throwing snow up into the air, hiding her tennis balls just so she can dig them up, chasing snow balls. In the short time, we have also learned that Rosie May absolutely loves her tennis balls, and always has one (or more if she can) with her. She also is very quick at learning; she has perfected sit, lay down, stay and the handshake. The only issue is she doesn't just shake your hand when you tell her to! She will come up and shake when she wants a treat or to throw her ball, or your attention. We have also learned that she loves to cuddle; all 50+ pounds of Rose believes she is a lap dog.
When Chance and I walked into the shelter that day we had no idea that we were actually going to adopt a dog, but Rose has been the best decision we have ever made. Thank you WHS and Rose for making our lives so much better!
