Happy Dogs on Thursday! Today it's all about Tessie... Tessie is the Royal Rooters rally cry... Tessie is the tune they always sung... Tessie echoed April through October nights... Oh wait, not that Tessie! No, I'm talking about the tiniest little lovebug with one of the most infectious personalities I've ever seen!
A few weeks ago Tessie came North via P.E.T.S. Transport and needed a place to crash for the night until her adoptive parents could pick her up. You may recognize the P.E.T.S. name from Last Chance Highway, but if not be sure to check it out! The show provides a unique view inside the world of dog rescue, especially Southern dogs who are adopted out up North.
We had the pleasure of picking Tessie up, but because of tickets to a little show in Boston, we had lined up friends of ours to take little Tessie over night. Boy did I regret that decision after spending a few short hours with the little girl. Not only did I want to foster her overnight, I wanted to keep her! Her Southern foster Mom had warned me, and boy was she right! Everyone who met Tessie seemed to instantly fall for her...
She liked to ride by my feet
Lola was the lucky Lapdog who got to pick up Tessie from the transport. Here we are waiting in line to get Tessie. Well, I was waiting in line, but Lola was much more interested in checking out all of the doggies coming off the transport... especially the little pups!
Tessie instantly bonded with Lola, even though the Queen apparently thought that she was there to pick out -and take home- her own puppy! I swear if Lola could talk, she would have been saying "No Momz, not dis one! Shez ok butz Iz luvs des little lab mix pupz beterz... Iz take one of dem pleaz."
Isn't she just darling?!?! Who could resist this adorable little girl? Certainly not me... it's a good thing she already had a forever home lined up!
As I said, Lola was more concerned with meeting other pups than anything else... including cooperating for a group photo! Tessie worked on stealing Matt's heart and iced cappuccino.
Two peas in a pod Magnum!
I hope that Tessie's forever home is as perfect as I picture it in my dreams..... this girl has a lot of love to give and deserves only the very best in life!
