ASPCA Happy Tails: Language of Love
Gentle and sweet-natured, Christy—who loves other dogs as much as she loves people—was in pretty rough shape. She had surgery for breast cancer at the ASPCA Bergh Memorial Animal Hospital, and then spent some time resting, recovering and winning the hearts of ASPCA staff. Soon, she was bouncing around our indoor dog park and teaching a lesson to many a chew toy.
“As soon as Christy saw her bed, she was in it,” reports Mary Alice. “She also enjoys the sofa and the armchair and knows the various routes we take for her walks, choosing a different one each day.”
Thankfully, the get-along pooch hasn’t lost any of the unique personality traits that made her such a hit with ASPCA staff. Mary Alice says: “My favorite Christy quirk is that she talks. Her vocabulary is made up of a variety of sounds beyond barks, growls and yips. She likes to put them together into sentences and walk around talking to herself.”
