A senior dog adoption is always exciting, but how about TWO senior dogs adopted by the same family?! Yep! Tulip AND Susie got ADOPTED!! Two Saturdays ago SSD’s senior dog adoption event got rained out. Batool was one of the many people planning to attend...but she didn't let the weather stop her plans! Even though the adoption event didn't happen last minute, Batool got in touch with the rescue and then got in touch with Tulip's foster. She then drove to the foster's home to meet (and adopt) 10 year old Tulip. Susie, an 8 year old pup, was also being fostered with Tulip. And well, how could she say no?!? Best story ever!!
Batool writes, "Tulip and Susie are my first senior dog adoptions. They’re actually my first adoptions period. I grew up taking care of my younger siblings and I got peed and pooped on and got called on to resolve arguments and I was often up rocking them to sleep late into the night so I pretty much have infinite patience. (We also have a third dog, Teddy, their little brother!) @friendswithfourpaws rescue told me about Susie the night before my meet and greet with Tulip. I looked Susie up and I saw her ears! My ears were disproportionately large for my face growing up and I was made fun of for them a lot, so now I have a particular soft spot for ‘funny’ looking ears. At the time, I considered Susie, but I decided that two dogs would be too much. But then the next day I met Susie! I just looked at her and I felt it. She reminded me a little of myself. Fortunately, I had Teddy’s carrier with me and they both fit PERFECTLY inside it because they’re so TINY.
Susie and Tulip are both such distinct lovable personalities. Firstly I am surprised by how energetic they both are! I was told Susie would be a sweetheart once she warmed up to me but Susie was jumping and hopping on my bed and twirling for treats almost the very next morning I got her! And Tulip was initially true to her description but she gets more energetic every day. It’s like nobody told her she’s supposed to be a ‘senior’ dog.
