Today's Rescue - Cheeto

This sweet girl (formerly Colline at the West L.A. shelter) was rescued by Much Love in April and adopted earlier this month. Unfortunately, she took to nibbling on children's ankles, so she was returned. What's the big deal? Obviously that family didn't realize that little children taste like peanut butter.

Anyway, Cheeto, as she was renamed, is back at ML, and I got to hang out with her a few days ago. She'd just come back from a morning of exercise and was pretty tired, but her foster mom tells me that even when dogs get in her face, she doesn't react at all. It's more like, I really don't have time for this. She is one mellow girlfriend.

She's also very, very overweight, and judging by the fact that she refused a meaty treat from me, I'm guessing she was fed her meals at her former home straight off the human table. A little filet mignon, perhaps? Some scalloped potatoes? But she's getting a fresh start at Much Love, and is on the road to a healthier life.

Such a nice girl.
