A volunteer writes: Seymour looks like he got ready for Halloween a month early and is going as a skeleton. Of course, the sad reality is that he had no say in his costume! Although it looks like someone neglected to feed him, Seymour holds no grudges against the rest of us: he is so, so friendly and sweet! He seems to have housetraining and is so happy to go out and about that sometimes his frail little body can''t keep up with his enthusiasm and he loses his footing (but he brushes it off with a tail wag!). He has been fine passing dogs at a distance on our walks, but can be reactive meeting them through a fence and when we''ve seen rats he nearly starts baying like a hound! The good news is he''s super motivated by treats, toys, and love so it''s very easy to get his undivided attention. He sits like a champ, takes treats pretty nicely when I remind him to, and loves to play fetch. He wants to say `hi` to everyone we pass in the hallways and is SO cuddly. He''ll hang out in my lap, lean against me when I pet him, lick my hands, and even flop over for belly rubs! I''m pretty sure if Seymour could tell us what he wanted to be for Halloween, he''d say anything at all as long as it was one of those costumes where a dog and person coordinate: he wants (and so deserves!) a person to call his own! He could be the Luigi to your Mario, the Scooby Doo to your Shaggy, and just your very best friend ever every other day of the year...please come see him at Brooklyn ACC!
