Ready Fur Love: Joy’s Love Letter


January 26, 2017

To My New Family,

Let me tell you, there is no bigger joy in this life than coming home to me. There’s no such thing as a bad day when I’m around, and good days are only amplified. Are you looking for a laidback companion who is totally down with binging on the newest Netflix arrival and potato chips? ‘Cause that’s pretty much what I’m hoping to find with you. Also, if you’re good at painting nails, my favorite color is red. It makes me feel pretty.

Since we haven’t officially met yet, let me introduce myself to you. My name is Joy and I’m the perfect dog. How do I know that? Easy. Because I’m not super young to where I have tons of energy that needs to be expelled multiple times a day, but I’m no granny either. At 4 years old I’m a perfect age. With age comes experience, so you won’t need to teach me basic puppy manners. Been there, know that. Of course, if you do want to teach me new tricks, I will pick them up in a snap!

My life goal as your new fur-kid is to just be part of the family, being part of family activities like weekly trips to the farmer’s market or to brunch (french toast for me, please), and getting to be part of all the big celebrations! I want to be there by your side through it all because your life is my life and I’ll love every minute of it.

I’m hoping you come for me soon, because I’ve been here for a while now, but I also know good things are worth waiting for. With the amount of waiting I’ve done, you must be doggone perfect.
