“We hope she’s happy as she looks because we couldn’t be happier to have her with us!”

We adopted Delia (formerly Dusky) from Homeward Bound in August 2008.
She had been up for adoption for a very long time because she was
already a senior and has a very quiet nature. (Why do people always
want the bouncy, boisterous puppies? Don’t they know they can be just
as wired at 2 AM as they were at 2 PM?!)

We quickly learned that she would try to become invisible in chaotic
situations (like pet adoption events or anywhere with children) but
her sweet, intelligent personality would shine in a calm, quiet home
with a soft bed. Also, she needed extensive dental work leaving her
with only fourteen teeth but completely pain-free. That and treatment
for her arthritis have helped her relax and enjoy a life of good food,
good friends, car rides and shoulder massages.

We hope she’s happy as she looks because we couldn’t be happier to
have her with us.
