Date of Death:
Today, I had to say goodbye, for now, to Pretty. We captured her in March 2015 and I adopted her in April 2015. Pretty was really something special. Flights risks dogs have so much to offer and while it may take a while (and I mean a while, like years), they do finally trust and bond … over the last 3-4 years, she regularly looked for attention, leans, pets, and kisses.
Even with all the tighter routines I had in place to ensure she was always kept secured, she ended up being probably the easiest dog I’ve ever had, which is kind of hard to believe, but she really was.
I never thought that the skittish girl that came into the rescue, who was trembling that day when I bathed her, and then got loose from her adopters 2 weeks later, then after those 9 weeks out loose and 35 miles of tracking her, that she would finally know she was home here .. but she did.
I remember the night Monty & I captured her down in Beltsville, after 3 weeks of no sightings and then that day .. the phone rang off the hook with sightings … that night we captured her, I just couldn’t believe it; and she was mine already, I just didn’t know it that night.
It will be quiet here without her, as she was the loudmouth lol … and we will miss her. She was the Pretty Princess in this home (and a hooker for food always lol), but she was worth every single minute I had the pleasure of having her in my life. RIP Pretty – you will surely be missed.
