My favorite three-letter word is "Joy." I see it quite a bit when people tell me about the dog they adopted from St. Louis Senior Dog Project. They say the dog, once homeless or unwanted, is now bringing joy into their lives.
That's the case with Paige, above, who didn't love sporting reindeer antlers for the picture, but certainly loves her new home where Emily and Molly spoil her daily.
Paige's was one picture I received this week. Another came from Hillary and Steve who adopted Winnie (now Stella) in 2013. Stella is also bringing "so much joy" to her people. "I couldn't have asked for a better dog," wrote Hillary.
I first saw Stella when she was brought into Jefferson County Animal Control in a humane trap that had been set out to catch her. Neighbors had seen her running about but couldn't catch her. This tiny dog was clearly terrified.
All that fear disappeared quickly, and Stella found her new home where Hillary and Steve are spoiling her seriously.
We do have plenty of other dogs waiting to bring joy to their new homes.
This week I took in a couple dogs from Jefferson County Animal Control (JCAC). One is Enzo, an Italian Greyhound/ Rat Terrier mix. He likes to keep warm by burrowing under blankets. Here's how he looked at the shelter when I picked him up. He's about 9 years old and feeling much better
Also new to my place is Homer, and your guess is as good as mine as to the mix in this 2 year old who was also found at JCAC.
I also took in some dogs from a breeding facility that was shutting down. The dogs were being sold at auction, and some were having trouble finding new homes. I'm not sure I can afford them, but sometimes it's hard to say no to dogs that have never yet had the chance to be a pet.
Another adoption event Saturday. Hope to see you there.
