04/29/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: This gorgeous black and white beauty has stand out amber eyes that shine with intelligence, sweetness and love. Google the name ‘Erin’ and you’ll read that it means ‘Peace’, or someone with the body of a Goddess and the brain of a genius. Our Erin is so appropriately named as she’s calm, gentle, affectionate and smart. The very first thing she did was give me a welcome kiss as she sensed the way to my heart; how smart is she? Coming forward in her kennel to be leashed, she steps out gently and we’re off to the park. After peeing endlessly we enjoy a nice stroll and while Erin pulls slightly on the leash she’s definitely a ‘stop and smell the roses’ kind of a gal. Compact and well groomed, her tail wags gently as we walk. In the backyard, she joins me on the bench for kisses, takes treats gently, poses for pictures gazing at me with her stunning soft eyes, and wagging her tail in friendship at a dog in another pen. In group, she wants to play but isn’t quite sure how to engage. This lovely soft girl is so sweet and gentle she’ll have you falling in love at the first wag of her tail. Won’t you meet her and give her that chance?
