Sisters-All for One and One for All!
By Megan Gabel
At the SPA (Sociedad Protectora de Animales), we often have resident dogs who are related to each other. Like their human counterparts, sometimes, these relatives don’t get along. Other times, they adore each other. We currently have three sets of sisters who fall within the latter category. Not only do they enjoy each other, but we get a kick out of watching them together.
Sisters Gina and Lola have grown from 7-week-old babies to gorgeous, medium-sized dogs, now close to 1-1/2 years old. They are exuberant, playful, affectionate beauties. Splashing around in the big vat of drinking water in dog exercise area amuses them greatly, followed by them dashing around the exercise area, chasing each other, and playing tug of war with a rope. As a resting point, they’re not averse to slinging their wet bodies across your lap for some attention. While one is being petted, the other one grabs her sister’s rear thigh and tries to pull her away to force a substitution. They’re a fun pair to watch.
Sisters Anubis and Pretzel, about 10 months old, have similar personalities. They are both incredibly affectionate and loving and lean into being wrapped up in your arms. Calm, sweet, and friendly, they enjoy playing with people, toys, and other dogs. Those nasty cars on the street make Pretzel a little nervous, but cuddling gives her courage to put one paw in front of the other. Anubis is much braver. Small/medium and still growing, they are each a delight.
It’s hard to believe that Hilary and Haylie are sisters because they don’t look alike at all. But, they sure love each other. A little over a year old, the minute these small/medium sweethearts see each other in the dog exercise area, they start racing around and playing. Haylie has become a bit circumspect about strangers, but she warms up quickly. Hilary is ready to go for a walk with whomever shows up with a leash.
Each of these girls would become a wonderful, devoted pet, full of life, energy, and love. With an average of 50 SPA dogs waiting for forever homes, it’s difficult to showcase all our dogs as much as they deserve to be seen. Please come and meet these lovely sisters at the SPA, Monday-Saturday, from 11-2, Los Pinos 7, 152 6124. Read more about them on our website www.spasanmiguel.org (Adopt me! Dogs) and enjoy their videos.
