It’s been one month since I brought Cher home and I wanted to send you all an update to let you know how well she’s doing. First off, her name is Layla now, and it really seems to suit her. She’s definitely a
little lady, but with a lot of spunk! She has settled in very well at home, and she and her older kitty sister Phoebe are good friends, most of the time. She was housebroken almost from day one, very few
accidents, and is a very quick learner. She has already learned to sit, stay, shake, and lay down! I think she’s the smartest puppy there is, I may be a bit biased, but everyone she meets seems to agree. She
has yet to meet a stranger and she is the most popular puppy at the vet clinic where I work, everyone just loves her big ears and expressive little face. She comes to work with me at least once a week
to visit all her human and doggy friends. She certainly keeps me on my toes, one of her favorite things right now is to destroy every toy I give her (see the picture I’ve attached of her surrounded by
stuffing!), which is expected as she’s teething, but she’s also perfectly content to curl up on the bed with me and watch tv or take a nap. And we will be taking a beginners’ obedience class after the
holidays to help make us the best puppy and owner we can be. I’m so lucky to have her, and it’s hard to remember what my life was like before she came to live with me.
Thank all of you at DKC so much for taking such good care of her until we found each other. I originally saw Layla at another shelter who diagnosed her with a skin condition and was not willing or able to
treat her. Thank you for taking a chance on this little girl and treating her so she could find a home. And special thanks to Monique, who helped me track her down when she originally came to you from the
Irving shelter, to her foster mom (I don’t remember her name) for taking care of her and her brother while they got their medical treatment, and to Pat and Lisa for helping me through the adoptions
process. Layla thanks you all too, she told me so!
I’ve attached some pictures that I thought you might enjoy. A few of her just laying around being cute, one of her in toy destruction mode, and one of her sporting her TCU best, she loves to tailgate, GO FROGS!
Since we live over in Fort Worth it’s hard for us to make it to most of the events y’all throw in Dallas, but we will continue to send updates. And we are telling everyone over here on the west side of the
Metroplex how awesome DKC is! Thank you again for all you did for us, and for all you continue to do for all the dogs and cats in need.
