The love and joy a dog brings to your home far surpasses the heartache you feel when you have to let them go. We know this first hand after welcoming Disney into our home in November of 2019 at the age of 2. Disney instantly captured our hearts when she came for her visit and hasn’t stopped since. We had a few hurdles with her dislike, extreme dislike, of other dogs after being attacked, losing her eye and in the end being surrendered because of medical costs and not being able to be with other dogs. In saying that she has become pretty chummy with our senior cat, Mr. Lucy from snuggling, making sure his face is clean, to being his protector when the younger cat starts picking on him. Disney is a perfect balance of lazy and crazy!
The things she loves or is good at are giving kisses, snuggling (most of the time not giving you her best or least smelly end, they should really warn you about this), rolling in the dirt, sunbathing, car rides (licking her chops at the drive thru worker until she gets a pup cup), walks (we have figured out 50 degrees and under is her preference and in the dark is better so she isn’t distracted by rabbits and squirrels, lol), making sure she is noticed when you are eating popcorn, fetching, tugging, chewing on her nylabone (only one end though, even when that end is done for and the other end is brand new), toys that have crinkle inside and squeakers (even though they don’t last long), sleeping under the covers, and snoring like a freight train.
Things she dislikes (there isn’t much): dogs, baths, the vacuum, and being ignored.
We are so thankful for MABTR and allowing us the opportunity to welcome Disney into our home!
