Ticket, my 7 year old Maltese Poodle Mix, that I adopted from the shelter when he was 5 years old. The day I walked into the shelter, I was on the hunt to find a dog that would be the perfect fit for me. Suddenly, an employee approached to me about a little girl and her father left a doggy there. When I saw him for the first time, he was so happy and excited with his tongue hanging out. I felt like it was destiny that he was dropped off the same day I decided to go to the shelter……it was meant to be! I instantly fell in love with him. And how did Ticket come to be!?!? I decided on Ticket to make light of the NUMEROUS tickets I have received…..you know, Asian driving.
After a few weeks, I am discovering that Ticket is the most wonderful and loving dog ever! He is so sweet and friendly…..my love for him grows more and more. It’s hard for me to believe that anyone could leave him behind at a shelter. Ticket is such a people-person kind of dog that wants a whole lot of lovin’……..to stay in my arms and to never be separated from me.
He is AMAZING with kids! My nephew loves him a lot. Not only is he loving, but he is also very good guard dog. He may be small, but he is mighty and a great judge of character! He has also become my mini assistant at family photoshoots to bring love, happiness, and smiles to the children.
Having a new, baby sister is not a funny thing for him. As an older dog, he wants peace, quiet, and naps. His daily routine is now interrupted with this new “puppy life.”
Bath time is not his favorite, but he is such a good boy and will sit still for me …..quite the opposite of Parking!
He is everything to me. Everyday when I come home, seeing him and holding him is best feeling ever. When he is sleeping, he is like a angel…… I will use all I have to protect him and love him.
