Last week I had the pleasure of personally taking one of our sweet lil’ loveys to her forever home in TN. Evie, now Petunia, came into LoveyLoaves Rescue as an owner surrender from TX. She is a gorgeous blind and deaf double dapple long hair doxie. Her forever home just happens to be with my mom who had previously adopted a lil’ lovey from LoveyLoaves, Cooper.
Charlotte (my two year old grand-daughter) and I boarded a plane with Petunia stowed safely in her carry on. Petunia drew quite a crowd both in the airport terminal and on the plane, so we spent the entire time in the airport both before and after the flight educating people about blind and deaf dogs in general and also about the irresponsible breeding that occurs in order to produce such a beautiful double dapple doxie. Everyone was amazed with Petunia’s story and how well behaved she was. From the moment I put Petunia into mom’s arms, it was love at first touch!
Petunia truly is an amazing lil’ lovey. From the beginning, she rarely walked into any furniture. Even as she was learning her way through the house, she had a mysterious sense of knowing where things were and how to get from one place to another without running into things. By the end of the first full day she was jumping on the couch and cuddling up on the dog beds at her leisure.
Dogs are amazing! It’s why I have chosen to spend my life working so hard to provide them with the care they deserve. What a blessing it is to see a rescue thrive in their forever home. It was a pleasure spending those days with Petunia, Cooper, and my mom. I’m already looking forward to seeing them again! These special lil’ loveys remind me every day how precious life is and to take pleasure in the simple things. It really is the simple things that make life worth living!
