March 2013 Pet of the Month: Sandy Britts

SandybrittsSandy is an 11 year old yellow lab mix. She joined our family when she was 10 months old, from a shelter in Texas. At first, she cowered down when we “talked with our hands” or had a broom/mop/etc. Very quickly, though, she came to trust us knowing we loved her and would not only never hurt her, but would always protect her. She and I have a special bond & I tell her she’s the best dog I’m ever going to have, I already know. She loves food and apparently has nine lives. She has survived eating a cornish hen, three packs of gum at once, and a zipper off her bed. We think the fact that she inhales her food rather than chews it, saved her life.
