When my family was ready for a new addition of a four-legged friend, they looked at the Humane Society of Boulder Valley. They found a picture online of a dog who caught their attention, but before they could meet the dog, another family adopted her. While my family was sad to miss out, a great thing happened. Their friend Michelle, who volunteered with the shelter, helped them find another girl—ME.
They fell in love with me and my velvet soft fur right away. My shelter name “Cupie Doll” quickly became Independence a/k/a Indy, Indigo Girl, and Beanie. Of course, all dogs need nicknames!
Together with my big sister, Liberty, I had a lot of life adventures like hiking, camping, and swimming. I spent 12 years with my adoptive family knowing every day that I was loved. I crossed the rainbow bridge on March 6, 2015.
After my family lost Indy, they wanted to fill a space in their heart with another special girl. My mom began searching rescue organization sites, specifically websites for Brittanys. One look at my photo and my mom wanted me! She arranged a visit with me through the National Brittany Rescue and Adoption Network (NBRAN) where I got to meet my soon-to-be sisters, Liberty and Echo. We all got along great. Plus, when I met my dad, I jumped right into his arms. He couldn’t help but fall in love!
Because I had been a stray dog, my ears were shaved and I was quite skinny. Everyone thought I would be a liver-colored Brittany, but nope. My ear fur kept growing and growing until it was obvious I was a Springer Spaniel. Doesn’t matter, my family loves me no matter the breed!
They tell me I’m beautiful and loved every single day. It never gets old. I love the sun and find rays wherever they come into the house. My favorite thing, though, is to cuddle under the covers in bed.
