When you rescue a dog sometimes it turns out the dog rescues you. Sissy’s adopted mom reports that her new dog Sissy, adopted from Ginger’s Pet Rescue, is now lovingly referred to as Sissy the Wonderdog, as she is able to detect her epileptic seizures before the onset. Carol writes:
Sissy The Wonder Dog needs to go in the “happy endings” for sure. I don’t know how a dog can be happier.
I don’t know if people write to you after they adopt dogs or if you expect such notes. But, Sissy brings so much to my life I just wanted to let you know that she’s doing well and enjoying life to the fullest. She’s mastered obedience as best she can.
I don’t know if Karen Konz told you but Xena loves to ride the Metro buses with me all the time as I don’t drive. We go to the dog park at Magnuson where she runs with the big dogs. She is just so fast! Her cleverness allows her to outrun them. She comes to me for rest or if she gets in over her head. She becomes bored in the small dog area and insists on going in the big dog area.
Also, something very special about this little brown dog. Something no one ever expected of her. A real blessing. I have epilepsy. Xena is able to sense when I’m going to have a seizure before I actually do. She just circles around my feet and cries. I work from home because of my condition, I don’t have seizures often at all, but it’s nice to know I have this added insurance. So far she’s never been from wrong.
What an amazing little brown throw away dog that no one wanted. She has more friends now, 2 and 4 footed that I can even begin to count. The work you do Ginger is amazing and I do continue to tell everyone who asks where Sissy came from.
Cheers, Carol Wessberg and Sissy the Wonder Dog
