Spirit came to Living Free when she was a puppy and was adopted about a year and a half ago, at the age of nine.
Becky Fears, her adopter, says Spirit is doing well. She loves to run around the yard and play “keep away” with her stuffed toy, Dragon (her usual morning routine). She has a ramp to go down into the back yard which she uses to get into the yard, but prefers to walk up the steps to come back in. She takes great delight in burying Becky’s garden gloves to see how long it takes Becky to find them. She now has an orthopedic, memory foam bed to ease the arthritis in her hips.
Her walks are shorter than before, but she still enjoys getting out and takes time to sniff every single blade of grass. She loves to greet each person she meets, but finds it hard to resist chasing small dogs. She and the resident cats get along and chase each other around the backyard.
Becky says Spirit is a real character with a sense of adventure. Everyone loves her and Becky loves her most of all. Thank you, Becky and Ian, for taking such good care of our girl. Love to you Spirit from everyone at Living Free.
