Harry and Miny

Miny

Miny

By Harry Burrus

She gets excited when she sees me approaching her casita. When she breaks into a smile, she has chipmunk cheeks. She stands, places her paws on my chest, and I put on her harness. She insists on a foreplay massage before we ascend the steps. I don’t object.

Miny is a lovely girl with honey-amber-colored eyes, a toasty-bronze beauty who flinches if she sees her shadow—in otras palabras, she’s timid. We poke our heads out the volunteer door, checking for cars and pedestrians. It’s clear. We run. That’s the best chance for us to go at least a block. She likes to run fast, which means I must too or be left behind. Her Reebok pads cushion her well. She reminds me of Secretariat, the big horse that won the Triple Crown. Her initial lumbering, before we reach Mach 1, is surprisingly elegant. The chariot races at Circus Maximus have nothing on us. We can reach two blocks or more if there are no cars or people. Unfortunately, that’s a rare occurrence, and our 100 yard sprint on those occasions will have to do.

When we return to her abode, which she refers to as her “villa,” I sit with her a spell. She will walk up one side of me and then the other. She licks my ear and then rubs her nose against mine. I am moved by the affection she shows. It’s good being Miny’s friend. She’s a loyal, loving, sweet dog who will be a wonderful pet with the right owner, one who understands her and is patient.

Meet Miny and all our adoptable cats and dogs at the SPA, Monday–Saturday, 11–2, Los Pinos 7, 152 6124. Our adoption fee is 500 pesos. For cats, the fee includes sterilization, all current vaccinations, deworming, the feline leukemia/FIV test, and the feline leukemia vaccine and booster. For dogs, it includes sterilization, all current vaccinations, deworming, the leptospirosis booster, and enrollment in the Green Paw Pet Registration Program.

Get your dog and cat fix by volunteering at the SPA (same hours as adoption hours). Spend time playing with with cats, kittens, and puppies and get some good exercise by walking dogs. It’s a joyful experience for you and for our animals.
