About a week ago, a three-pawed pup named Monkey came to live with us in Montclair and we’ve been inseparable ever since. Monkey has been a wonderful houseguest, never complaining about the food, seemingly excited about the arrangements, and undeniably contagious in his happy-go-lucky demeanor. He has brought so much joy to our lives. Infinitely more entertaining than anything on the DVR, Monkey keeps us laughing by chasing his tail, playing with his favorite ball, and sleeping peacefully on the sofa after a long day of walks.
Our doorbell has been ringing more than ever with requests from the young twins next door who want nothing more than to feed him grape tomatoes from the garden. The mother told me Monkey has been a source of constant inquiry from them both, as they question where he sleeps, what he eats for dinner, and when they will see him again.
There is a huge adoption event this weekend and a part of me hopes he finds the loving forever family he so deserves there. Another part is completely torn because I know Bryan feels the same way I do–if circumstances were different and breed restrictions weren’t an issue, we would keep him and give him all the love in the world. For now, however, I’d like to introduce you to one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. Please read all about him and share his story–I’m sure you’ll understand in no time the affect he has made on us and the many people he has met around town. He’s so loved, he even has his own Tumblr page!
Here’s hoping he gets his happily ever after. We love you, Monkey!
