At Salt Lake County Animal Services we love getting updates on our pets that have been adopted from the shelter. Here is Fifi's story. If you have a story you would like to share about your pet that you adopted from us please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fifi came into our family in 2010. We adopted her from Salt Lake County Animal Services.
She was a great older puppy...we got her at around 5 or 6
months if I remember correctly. She was smart, learned where/how to potty train
quickly and was an always ever present little chica with our 4 boys... 2 of
which were 3 and 2 yrs old when she came into our home. She loved to go to the
park and run everywhere with the boys as they practiced for basketball,
football, and baseball. She was a tiny speeding bullet as fast as she was!! She
always loved to tag along with the boys.
Life has been great with Fifi. She loved to play and had lots of fun as a puppy. She even loved to stay up late and watch late night
movies on weekends.
Now... at 9 years old... Fifi is an older lady and just
wants to lounge. She is still playful now and then...but not for very long. She
loves to lay in the sun on the backyard grass on warm summer days... but most
of all, she loves her bed and blanket. She loves her naps and loves her people
but she is slowly heading toward her twilight years and she now loves the
slower pace of naps and good food from her boys.
Even as an older gal, she is ALWAYS quick to defend home and
hearth from anyone who knocks at "her" front door or comes into her
house. The years just melt away... she becomes the feisty quick footed girl that
she was as a youngster when someone knocks at our door or comes into the house.
When we let her know that all is well, she walks back to her bed with a little
side eye for whomever is visiting our home at the moment. She is our little
guard dog and has lots of heart. In her youth she once tried to defend one of
the boys from a large dog who she thought was a threat. Eventually she was picked
up off the ground and held out of reach of the bigger dog, and the owner
caught their dog but we've always known that she does not lack courage.
We love Fifi and hope she is around in 10 more years so we
can let you know that shes still around... at the moment, she is loving her
life of ease and contentment 😊😁
