October is Adopt A Shelter Dog Month - Meet Abby the puggle | The Cheerful Times

Meet Abby: Celebrating Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month

I have exciting news to announce! October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month and Malcolm and I did just that — adopt a shelter dog!

Meet the one and only Abby, the newest contributor to The Cheerful Times.

Abby is a five-year-old chubby wubby Puggle (that’s a beagle and a pug mix), and is the absolute best, cutest little princess.

Abby likes:

  • Snuggling humans
  • Snuggling cats
  • Burping
  • Showing her pudgy belly for scratchies
  • Making cute faces
  • Her two stuffed toys/dolls
  • Sleeping on items that are neither of her two beds
  • Forcibly suggesting you pet her
  • Soaring through the air onto the couch
  • Snoozing on the couch
  • 4:30 a.m. sneezing fits
  • Falling asleep as you scratch the top of her head, behind her ears, on her chest, tummy, neck…
  • Licking the foundation off my nose to reveal its true Rudolph-like complexion
  • Frolicking up every driveway and walkway we come across in the neighborhood
  • Meeting new people
  • Helping put on her martingale for walkies

Abby dislikes:

  • Closet doors — those sneaky things look just like a front door, so she waits next to them when she has to go potty
  • Berkley, the hound dog at her shelter who ate her favorite toyย
