Zoe Steinmacher found her Forever Home the week of Thanksgiving.
When she first came, we weren't sure about her name. We were told to
call her whatever we wanted, so we decided upon Zoe. We later
discovered her name was Evie, but she was already responding to her
new name, so she shall always be our Zoe. She arrived emaciated with
an apparent cigarette burn on one of her small legs. She also had a
skin infection, worms, an ear infection and a hernia. From the
moment she arrived, she stole not only our hearts, but the hearts of
her new brother pug, Sir Bozworth, and her new sister pug, Penny.
Bozzie and she bonded immediately and the two of them are
inseparable. Boz was a KPR rescue that we adopted in May, 2004. He
is almost three years old and the most loving of our pugs. We call
him the "gentle giant" because he is so big and yet so gentle.
Penny, at age seven, is the matriarch of the family. Most of the
time, she is content to simply watch the other two play.
Occasionally, she will unexpectedly join in. Her primary concern
seems to be their potty training. She "insists" the other two follow
her outside when she determines it's time for everyone to potty. She
barks and nudges them until they follow her lead. This was certainly
a Thanksgiving to remember.
