07/19/2015 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Ladies and gentleman, your 2015 Snuggle Princess has been crowned…please give a (quiet) round of applause for the charming Miss Olivia! A shy youngster from the fine city of New York, she’s a fashionable beauty who knows how to co-ordinate an outfit to perfection and on the sleeve of her lush blond coat she wears the perfect accessory for any pet — a heart of pure gold. Olivia doesn’t care for her kennel and inside it she shies from human (or leash) contact but once outside with her friends you couldn’t ask for a softer, more gentle companion. Olivia’s likes include nestling right by her person’s side, enjoying head scratches, belly rubs and even kisses and her idea of a perfect date is one where she can be as close as possible for the optimal snuggling experience. Her good girl talents are many and she comes when called, walks well on leash, uses the facilities promptly and greets passing dogs with calm, friendly manners. If Olivia could change one thing about herself it would be that she has no family to call her own so to all those fans out there who love ‘velcro’ dogs, our newly-crowned Snuggle Princess would just like to say…you do have the power to make our world a better place, and it starts by giving a rising star the loving home she deserves. Viva Olivia!
