TINKERBELL!!!

  • I am very proud to say that my favorite dog and I at animal control accomplished a first for Providence Animal Control.





    Tinkerbell is the first dog at PAC to pass her AKC Canine Good Citizen certification test, before even finding a home!!! She is only the 3rd dog ever in Rhode Island to achieve this before being adopted!





    Now will some worthy person please adopt this dog. I am beyond in love with her!






    *word
    of caution, whomever is lucky enough to get Tink needs to become
    friends with me because she needs to remain part of my life*

    I am not surprised this accomplishment goes to a pit/mix?  They get bad raps from being raised by some idiots, but they are very intelligent, loving, gentle and great companions.

    Way to go Jessica (and Tink)! As Brad said, not much of a surprise that you'd be the one to make it happen. :-D

    She is beautiful!!



    Do pit/mixes have an odor? I was talking
    to a woman in the dog park yesterday who was 'tempted' to adopt a
    boxer/pit mix at the local shelter except she thinks they will 'stink
    up my existance'. Those are literally her exact words. I told her she's
    better off letting someone who will love the dog without conditions
    adopt him. She stopped talking to me.

    Well pits don't shed stink out like Shibas and other double coated breeds do.  I would say that they do not get as stinky or oily as labs, but they can get a "dog smell" and sometimes leave a residue on your fingers.  When they get that dog smell, you wash them, and they smell fresh.  It's not really rocket science, but it might be too much for that lady.



    Most of the ones I have seen at the shelter that stink, or are really dirty, obviously did not come from the best homes.

    That's great news! Way to go Tink and Jess! She will have a better life form now and let's hope that her 15minutes of fame help others at the shelter and her breed cause they deserve more respect.

    The only crappy thing (not really crappy at all ) is I was gonna put Froggy on the news Saturday and now I have to pick a different dog.

    Oh well, I will muddle through somehow. ;)

    Just got an email from Tinks new parents (they have altered her name to Tinka, cute). They are already in love. She has won over the husbands 84 year old dad. They are aparently peas in a pod. The new mom cried when she had to go to work today because she knew she was going to miss her.
    I miss her. In fact I am crying right now. But I have to say, I am so happy for her I can't even begin to describe how much it means to me to know she is with the kind of people she deserves.

    Some dogs we get the privilege of meeting just brand us deep, as only a dog can. That seems to be the case for you with Tink. You're a lucky person.

    It's great that he won over the new family in a heart beat, she's clearly special.

    Tinka and her new family sound like a perfect match. I love her bonding with her new grandpa. You just know he's going to be sneaking her loads of table scraps, my grandpa used to save every bone and scrap of meat he could find for my Uncle's dog that he loved.
