THE TRUE ADVENTURES OF HUNTLEY "ALBERT"
(as told to his Mom)
The day I went home with my Mom, my Uncle Michael says I was "smiling" the whole time. We went shopping at Petco because I needed more "stuff" and when I got to my new house, I ran into every room, checking it all out. My Mom thought I might be a bit scared since not only was she and my new place different, but I had cataracts too which she thought would make me hesitate to get comfortable with stairs, furniture and our yard. It didn't - I figured out the steps, how to jump on the couch and how to navigate the lawn right away. I may have had some eye problems, but I am trusting and very smart.
That night I had a new bed in a new place and I started my new life! Since that day, I had cataract surgery (I have 90% of my vision back), I got a new sister, Cricket, who needs me to show her the ropes, I have a grandma who takes care of me too and I have made friends at the dog park, at my doctor's office and with Tucker, who is our next door neighbor. I spend my days with my Mom, who works at home, and Cricket, who is only 4 months old and a toynapper! We go for a walk to our park and sometimes we go for a ride in the car (I love cars). Mom says she doesn't know where I came from before she got me at the Animal Humane Society, but wherever it was, I was loved and she is very grateful that whatever the circumstances, I had the good taste to pick her as my forever person!
Huntley is loved and to all the people who had him, cared for him and gave him shelter, I say a profound THANK YOU! (My darling dancing funny little white dog says thank you too.)
