Love at first sight
We've all heard about it and thought about it -- is there such a thing as love at first sight?
Yesterday morning I had Becki, a shy, timid, and loving girl hanging out at the front desk for some socialization. She was making the most of it by taking a nice nap.
Well, maybe taking a nap isn't the most sociable thing to do. But it was a good sign, she was nice and comfortable and happy to have company. When she is lonely she tends to pace and be a little "vocal".
A lot of customers came up to say hi to Becki, and she was happy to recieve their pets. She's very timid and gentle, and just looks at you with those big brown eyes.
A couple came in yesterday looking to adopt a dog. I told them the dogs are down the hall, but to say hi to Becki since I had her with me up front.
A few seconds later I hear "I don't think we need to look at any of the other dogs -- she's just the dog we're looking for."
A little over an hour later, I was processing the paperwork for Becki's adoption.
Was it love at first sight? Maybe I'm a little bit more of a believer now.
