A volunteer updates: It''s been nearly six months since I first met Cora, and the secret is out-she is my favorite dog at the care center! Each week, after a long day of walking and photographing dogs, I consider her my reward for a hard day''s work. I like to think she looks forward to our time together, too. We even have a routine. Once outside, she''s quick to relieve herself. Then it''s play time: she will sit, lay down and even speak on command to get me to throw the ball. She hasn''t slowed down one bit, and will speed after the ball, often catching it mid-air. She drops the ball on command about a foot away from my feet and then nudges it toward me. We play for awhile, and when I sit on the bench, that''s our cue for some cuddle time. She doesn''t drop her ball, rather she gets into my lap (yes, all 65 pounds of her) draping her front paws over my legs, and begs for scratches behind the ear, or will lean to her side for some belly rubs. In fact, she has become so affectionate with me that I often find myself just holding and hugging her, even giving her some kisses on the ears (and no! she still hasn''t dropped that ballÂ…but she would if I asked her). And while I look forward to my Cora `therapy` what would make me happier is to know she''s in a loving home, because while we try to make each dog feel like they''re family, the care center is no substitute for the real thing. Please, ask to meet her today.
