Ed and Felicity

10005 101 lg

When Ed’s wife passed away from cancer, he felt “very lonely.” A retired manager with the Vallejo school district, he was no longer sure how to fill his days. His daughter, Tracy, brought him to Muttville to meet Felicity, a spunky poodle in need of a home.

Felicity came to Muttville from a high-kill shelter in Los Angeles, where her time was almost up. “She was going to be executed,” Ed reveals. On the day he and Felicity first met, she was looking particularly classy. Her foster mother had her dressed in a colorful sweater with gingham bows on her silky ears.

The name Felicity means “great happiness,” which nicely sums up Felicity’s personality. She gets along with everyone, including other animals. Ed’s home in Vallejo has a large, fenced-in backyard with a koi pond and vegetable garden. At first, Felicity didn’t know what to do with herself in such a luxurious environment, but now, she loves running through the yard, chasing squirrels like a “Sergeant-at-Arms.”

“She doesn’t pull it off very well,” Ed jokes. Even the squirrels can tell she’s friendly.

Ed calls Felicity “the missing link.” Her warm spirit fills his days and makes him laugh. When it’s time for bed, Felicity makes sure Ed knows it. She beats him into the bedroom every night for their special routine. Once they’re both tucked in, Felicity rolls over onto her back. Then Ed strokes her belly while she falls into a happy sleep.
