It’s always good to receive a letter, especially when it’s from one of our alumni –
“Dear Lisa and all my friends at the Swift Current Humane Society:
Hi! I hope you are well. I am dictating this to my mom as I can’t type very well with these tiny paws.
I stayed with you in October. Thanksgiving weekend two ladies came. They took me on a long car ride to Moose Jaw. It was really neat. I tried to drive, but they did not think that was a very good idea. I had some snacks and I got a new leash and I even got to stop and go pee pee at the side of the road.
We came to a big old house. There were three dogs, Alice, Robin and Mr. Jigs. They barked and barked. I was scared. Mr. Jigs pulled a bit of hair off of my bum. He didn’t bite me but he made me have a little bald spot. There is a container of dog toys and I explored them all and pulled out a couple that I liked. The other dogs each got a new toy to play with.
I went to see Dr. Smith. I don’t really know what happened but I fell asleep and when I woke up I was missing almost all my teeth. The next day I started feeling so much better. The doctor said I had lots of infection. I had to take pills and now I can chew and eat kibble without being in pain.
This is a pretty good place. I sleep in a big soft bed. I have my new brother and sisters. I go on walks in the neighbourhood and best of all they tell me I can stay here as long as I like. So that is why I am writing to you. I want to let you know that I am no longer “on trial” Mom says to ask you to make my adoption final. Thank you for finding me a home and for caring about me.
Squeak (aka Pippin)”
What a great letter! We’re so pleased that Squeak has found her forever home!
