Mahtab (now Debbie), Adopted by Anne Marie and John McCusker – Mossley, Ontario, Canada – Feb 24, 2013
Debbie (Mahtab) has been with us for over two months now and we could not imagine life without our sweet girl. She is best pals with her new brother, Geordie who she runs and plays with especially when they have neighbors to bark at! When she came to us she was very shy and scared of all things new even us wearing sunglasses! She is still easily spooked but only for an instant and is no longer afraid of the vacuum, the mop or sunglasses. She is very amusing and loves to lie on her back inviting belly rubs from anyone who is willing.
Debbie is a fun dog whose antics make us laugh all the time whether it is the way she appears out of nowhere and spooks us or the way she flops down beside me when I am cooking or doing anything around the house. She has a personality that melts the heart of everyone she meets. She is also very calm and we are so proud that she is now able to ignore the neighbor’s dogs when they bark at her through the fence.
She loves being outside whether it is sunny, raining or snowing. She rolls in the snow as though it is the best thing she has ever seen and runs around in the rain happily for ages. On the negative side, it takes three big towels to dry her off when she comes back in the house!
I’m sure we will have lots of stories to tell in the future and we hope Debbie is loving being with us as much as we love having her in our lives.
