Ms. Muffet's Happy Tail...

Muffet's story warms my heart as well. After a hard life of being a high volume breeder, Muffet, an 8 year old English Labrador was retired and put up for adoption. Joann, who had just lost her 14 year old Lab mix a year ago, was not intending on getting another dog quite so soon, especially one of such an advanced age. But a friend told Joann about the web site of a breeder that was retiring some breeders and Joann fell for Muffet the moment they met. Although the "free" adoption turned out to be quite expensive after addressing several expensive medical issues Joann says she has no regrets and plans to spoil Muffet for the rest of her life.

"Muffet is an incredibly sweet, lovable dog who had lived her life (prior to my adopting her) in a kennel situation where she gave birth to, and raised several litters of puppies. She had never known what it was to go for a walk or play in the park, or have one-on-one attention. She was initially very tentative & nervous because everything outside a kennel situation was a new experience for her. We have been together for 7 months now & Muffet has really come out of her shell & is definitely enjoying life as a spoiled, only dog. "

Yeah Muffet!!
