Canine Companion Shelter Dog
I love pets and animals, most notably dogs. Yes, you can clump me in with the clan of dog lovers. That said, let me introduce my canine companion shelter dog with a shout out of "V is for Valentino!"
My dog Valentino and I found each other at my local animal shelter, at a time when we needed each other most. I was mourning the loss of my dog Tidbit, my canine companion of fourteen years. Valentino was battling testing positive for heart worms. Added to his medical issue, Valentino was suffering from having been (seemingly) abandoned by his owner.
While brokenhearted souls at that time, Valentino and I no longer suffer the disease of loneliness which might have led us to lose our will to live. We are survivors, this dog and I. Together we shall thrive.
Valentino has lived in my heart and home for two months now. Previous to that he spent eight months in the animal shelter. The couple of years before that, who knows? Nor do I care. Whoever gave up or left this dog alone, sick, and bewildered matters not in the grand scheme of our life things.
The director of the shelter informed me that my shelter dog Valentino is Redtick Coonhound, that he quite possibly may be a mix or a mutt, maybe not. Whatever his bloodline, I love my marvelous mongrel dog!
Eager to please the mistress of his forever home, Valentino willingly submits to dog training. It took him no time at all to reign victorious in learning to sit and to stay via nonverbal command until I release him with a verbal, "Good boy. Go!"
