Shorty (aka Thumbelina)
“There is no way I can express the love I feel for her,” says mom Edna, “but I did my best.” We think you did a beautiful job! Read Edna and Shorty’s love story:
My name is Thumbelina but my mom calls me Shorty because I’m so tiny.
3 years ago mom saw me on the Muttville website and went to the adoption day event to meet me. She instantly fell in love with me – yes, there is such a thing as love at first sight. When my mom brought me home I knew I was home furever.
I have a bed with fluffy blankets, healthy food and LOTS of love. Daddy is my favorite sometimes he gives me nibbles of a McDonald’s cheeseburger. I like to steal daddy’s socks out of his shoes and mom laughs cause the socks are bigger than me. I spend my free time in the garden helping my mom or going to work with daddy. Mom plays practical jokes on me by dressing me in funny clothes or photographing me in silly situations – but I secretly enjoy it.
I am a blessed girl and I love my life – but the one thing that get on my nerves is when my St. Bernard brother takes my food I get so mad and bark in his ear (he’s really scared of me LOL)
Mom is so grateful for Muttville having brought us together. We love Muttville and we think they are PAWSOME!!!
