We actually have two dogs. This dog embodies the meaning of happy. As soon as you say her name or even walk by her, she is wagging her tail and flopping on her back waiting to have her belly pet. We found her at a farmer's market, the animal shelter had a few dogs present hoping for adoptions. She had been at the shelter 2 months with no adoption. My daughter immediately fell for her. I can't imagine anyone giving her up, much less passing her by at the shelter. She is our gem from the desert.
