For Tippy the Fox Terrier, Life is Good
Tippy is waiting for you at PAWS.
Life is good. I mean, I finally have my chance to be the PAWS Pet of the Week. I thought they would never stop with those silly cats and give me my chance to meet you. Hi, I am Tippy. I am a loving six-year-old purebred fox terrier and I love you already. Okay, I love everyone. But I am sure I love you even more than everyone else so please, please come adopt me.
I am being fostered at an Animal Hospital and it's fun here. I get to sit with the receptionist and greet everyone. When she gets up from her chair, I jump onto it. They have started giving me my own chair to sit on. I think they might ask me to start answering the phones soon. So please come and adopt me because, while I like desk work, I prefer getting out and about.
I adore car rides and going for walks. I am leash trained, I sit on command and I come when called. While I don't mind those tricks, I much prefer being outside and getting exercise with you. Some say I have springs on my paws because I am such an amazing high jumper. I think I might try out for the Olympic trials. Do you think it is too late to make the US High Jump Team?
Everyone who meets me says I am sweet. I think I am just friendly. I do admit that I get a bit nervous around other animals, especially dogs, so I would prefer to be your one and only. I would also be best with older children. They have put me on a bit of a diet because they say I am ever-so-slightly overweight. But I don’t mind the diet because, well, a girl does like to be at her best weight. I am a real lap dog, so I do want to keep myself fit and trim to snuggle right in with you.
So if you like a dog who enjoys exercise, car rides, and your warm and comfy lap, I think I am your dog. Call quickly. Life is good, but it will be better once we are together.

Join us this Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for our first Kitten Party of the season.
