To My Forever Home,
My name is Hawthorne and I'm currently at the shelter where it's very loud and scary. I have been there since Jan 2019, and I really don't understand why, my owners never came for me. My volunteer friends say I'm a very good boy!
One of my volunteer friends took me out for the day, and boy did we have a great time. She picked up from the shelter I hopped right into her car, and off we went. I just sat in the back looking out the window. Our first stop was Papago park where I got to smell the bushes, fresh air. My friend said I pulled a little on the leash at first, but then I was enjoying the walk/hike.
Sometimes there would be people riding a bike really fast and that scared me.
We walked to the creek area, and I was hot and sat right down in the water, boy did that feel good. I saw birds, ducks and all kinds of neat things. She took me up mountains, it was so much fun. I also had another day foster dog there with us his name is Jackson, we didn't seem to mind each other. After a while it was time to go. The next stop was Home Depot and Petco I walked all over and just had a great time. Then off to Mcdonalds to get cheeseburgers and an Ice Cream that I just loved. Did you see my pictures, I loved the ice cream. After that we went to another part where we just sat next to each other in the shade and she gave me lots of love.
The shelter said I can at times be dog selective, I like to choose my friends. If you would like to meet me and have another dog please make sure to bring them to the shelter so, we can see if we like each other. Not sure about cats or small dogs.
I ride in the car very well, know sit, but I would really like to learn more. Can you teach me? I'm so excited to have my own home and yard with a nice warm bed. I look forward to meeting you soon.
