DOG OF THE WEEK

Twigs
updated: Apr 12, 2014, 9:00 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

Twigs is a 16 year old, 19lb. mixed breed that I rescued from Doberman Rescue in Fillmore when she was 6 or 7 months old (although I don't think "Dobie" is in the mix)! Her name is Twigs because when I first saw her she had 6" long dreadlocks and was filthy dirty thus she looked like she was made up of twigs!

She is a great dog and still looks and acts like a puppy. She lives with me but is considered to be a part of the rest of my family, including friends and has given and gotten much joy and love from everyone including strangers. She loves children and has especially enjoyed playing with and being petted by my 5 grandsons. Running on the beach and wriggling in the water is an outing she always enjoys. She also enjoyed in her younger years being an agility champion, winning several ribbons! She still loves showing off by jumping over obstacles on cue, cue being a treat.

With her sweet and caring personality she became a Registered Therapy Dog visiting hospitals and nursing homes. We regularly visited The Friendship Center in Montecito where she on several occasions was mistaken for a "sheep". Twigs has always been able to go to work with me and gets great enjoyment out of being "the greeter", somehow knowing when a dog lover comes in by showering extra attention which often takes the form of asking for a belly rub.

Twigs has the caring staff at Whites Pet Hospital, especially Dr. Kathleen McFarlin for keeping her healthy. and I hope Twigs has many more years of giving love and happiness to everyone she meets.

The photo was taken at my Mom's 95th birthday party.
