Sasha’s Story

Hi Stephanie,

I just thought I would drop you an email to let you know how overjoyed I am to have Violet in my life. I think of her as an angel that Lindsay (my dog that passed away) sent me to fill my life with love again. I am really glad I was persistent with the adoption. She was certainly meant for me to have her.

Violet goes back and forth from Naperville and the city but she mainly stays in the city. She has become quite the “city dog”. At first, she was a little skittish and timid about the whole thing but now she walks with great confidence and her tail up in the air. She loves her walks. I take her for at least 2 big walks a day for her to get her exercise. She has lost 0.8 pounds! (Not that I’m paying particular attention to it.)

She gets along beautifully with Abbie, my cat. In fact, Abbie tries to play with Violet but Violet just ignores her. Violet rarely makes a peep too. She is as quiet as quiet can be in my apartment even when I leave. She loves to play with her “mittens” too. She is a very comical dog. I relate a comical story about her to my Mom everyday to her pleasure. She never ceases to make me laugh!

We have gone on vacation a couple of times since and Violet has been there with us and adjusts real well to the car and being in a foreign place (as long as she know I’m in her presence). I take her just about everywhere I go. I just put her in the tote bag and go in stores with her.

The attached photo was taken on vacation. She is posing in her new Icelandic sweater that my Mom knitted for her. She is all set to go for the winter season!

Anyway….I just love, love, love her! I never thought I could love another dog again as much as I loved my dear Lindsay. I can’t tell you how many times people have stopped me on the street to tell me how cute she is and lovable.

Thanks again for your dedication to the lives of furry animals everywhere.

Take care,
