Success Story "Snap"
Thank you Elizabeth for this wonderful update on Snap who has enjoyed a new beginning at the age of 11. Here is sweet Snap’s story:
Just wanted to send you an update on Snap, whom we adopted from you about two years ago at the age of 11. Adopting Snap was the best thing we ever did. I wanted a dog who would be a friend to my daughter, and he has more than delivered. From the day he came home with us, he has been devoted to Lotus. No matter how tired he is or how lame he’s feeling, he follows her around the house. When she’s out, he sleeps by the door. And he has adopted our house rabbits as his personal friends; we’ve never had to worry about him hurting them.
Snap’s big joy in life is our evening sessions of tv and treats. He also loves our weekly hikes in the East Bay hills, despite his struggles with lameness, and periodic trips to the dog park, where he is the toast of the park. He has made numerous friends in our neighborhood (we’ve met more neighbors here during our walks with Snap than we did during our previous ten years living here).
After much work with the vet, we’ve finally managed to control his chronic ear infections, and we’ve adjusted to his very slow walking pace. The fact is, he gets us out hiking because it’s such a pleasure going with him. I hope he lives another ten years, but whatever time we have with him we will be immensely grateful for. Thank you so much for letting us adopt him.
If you adopted a Muttville dog, we would love to feature you in an upcoming ‘Success Story’. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject line ‘Success Story’
