What About ME?

Last week, Athena's sister Sophie went to a great home.

I never would have expected Sophie to go first, because she's so laid back, primarily black, and she was larger than Athena. She just isn't an in-your-face, hey-you-gotta-adopt-ME dog like Athena is. Oh, yeah. And there's that Pit Bull thing, too. Is she gorgeous, wrinkly, beefy, and snuggly? Oh, YEAH! Just ask her new human child. :)

But Athena just garnered more interest during adoption hours and at off-site adoption events. It was heart-wrenching actually. Everyone held Athena while I held Sophie so she didn't feel slighted. Plus, Athena has this cashmere-colored coat that draws you immediately to her. And then there's that personality. She's just THE dog people would go gaga over. So, I just assumed Sophie would be the dog that grew up at the shelter.


Then WHY is Athena still at the shelter??? There has been interest, we've had applications, but nothing good or serious. (Of course, I'd like to clone Sophie's family, but that's just not possible!)


So tell me, why is this little cutie still waiting for a home?

  9. Awww, she's so cute!! Surely someone will want her soon. I hope - because its heartbreaking to think of her waiting (even though she doesn't know how much better her life will be with her own home!)

  10. Oh we can't figure out why she hasn't found a perfect home yet - she is just adorable! Poor little girl without her sister now - we know she will have a perfect home very soon!

  12. Oh wow. If I lived anywhere near you guys, she would definitely have a home with me. Look at those wrinkles. Here's hoping she finds somewhere wonderful soon.
