Oh Mercy! Meet Percy!

Recommended Posts

Since Mikey left us it was just a matter of time before another old boy found his way here. Surprising there was a shortage of old boys who were small dog safe. The few I'd found lived far far away. Each of them looked lovely but none of them "clicked" until I saw Percy.



He was found running the streets in Florida and landed in an animal shelter. Thanks to Carol Rizzo he got pulled and was taken in by the wonderful folks at the GPA Senior Sanctuary. I'm a sucker for hard luck stories and this boy sure had one. Skin sores, ear infection, pee shooter troubles and missing all but 8 teeth he looked perfect to me.


I had some concerns about him having to travel so far to get here. Debby and JC from GPA-SS met me halfway and assured me that Percy coming to me opened up space for other elderly returns to come in.


Percy traveled well and is getting along fine with Mazy and iggy Charlie. He's a few months shy of being 12, is very sweet and looks like he has "Bubba teef". :P

I'm very happy for Percy, and I don't think I can put into words how wonderful you are to open your heart and home to him. Congratulations! :grouphug

Well that made me smile! :)

What a sweet boy. He is dangerous, though. A smile like that could wrap me around his paws. I can't resisit their charm when they get older and wiser.

My old boy Colin (11) is the master manipulator.

Sorry for butchering the english language. I try to keep the mistakes to a minimum.

Congratulations Percy, you are going to love your new home!


The handsome boy Brady, mid-morning nap. The sun, the sun feels so, so, so good.
