Someone once told me that a rescued animal KNOWS it is loved.
Whenever I see Suki, I am blown away. We got her last July.
Even though she was pretty, her coat was like wire and really pale.
She was so skid-dish, afraid of everything! As 'tough' as she pretended to be toward the dogs and Leo, she was terrified of everything else.
Over the last several months, she has taken to being a loved family pet. She doesn't try to rush out anymore, although she has slipped out a time or two...only to come back in quickly.
Now, her coat is gorgeous!
She is playful and loving. Curly Girl carries her everywhere over her shoulder, like a mother burping a baby!
When Curly Girl isn't home, Suki seems genuinely lost. Sleep overs are so hard on her that I bring her princess bed into my room....but she usually sleeps at the foot of the bed....actually ON my feet. (Leo REALLY hates that.)
Just look at her now....in the photo, we were playing cards and she wanted to be part of it but didn't want to sit on the floor (I know, we just KNEW...)
Curly Girl got her bed and put her in it.
Instead of curling up, she flipped over into this position and stayed that way for about 30 minutes!
Now THAT is a trusting pose!
