Rescue dogs are special.
I had the pleasure of meeting Roxy at Jeff’s 30th birthday party last weekend.
She’s a little bit of a thing. I remember how Kristin was texting Karen back and forth with photos when she and Jeff were making the final plans for the rescue.
Karen had been over to meet Roxy, but this was my first time. Roxy ran from me.
Kristin told me how the little beauty was still very skittering around men.
Yes, every rescue has its own back story that we won’t ever really know. But we can imagine in dismay.
I took it easy. Got down on the ground. Talked nice and soft. Told her about Ellie B aka Dogamous Pyle back home in the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood.
I can’t say that she totally let her guard down. But Roxy did gift me with one of her tricks, standing on her back legs!
And, wow, did those little legs go fast from the other side of the backyard when Michelle and Kris were saying their goodbyes and moving toward the back garage door to leave!
Have you worked your way into the good graces of a friend’s rescue pet? How would you do it? How fast can a little dog run?
