On the menu: H.J. took Shannon to Boise Fry Co. (located in Bown Crossing) for a cheeseburger and French fries
Notable: Of all the dogs H.J. has taken to lunch Shannon is the first that tried to launch herself right onto the table to get to the burger
H.J. and Shannon enjoyed a nice lunch on the patio. While waiting Shannon was happy to be in Jeff’s lap for snuggle time. Once the food was delivered to the table Shannon was beside her self. She smelled that beef patty and her eyes lit up with excitement! It was all H.J. could do to hold her back while he got it ready for her. She gobbled it right up and was searching for more. French fries were no interest to her so H.J. shared his burger with her. She didn’t care for lettuce but approved of everything else. She was eager to meet other diners on the patio.
After lunch H.J. took Shannon to Habitat Veterinary to say hello. She was greeted with open arms by the staff and Shannon was more than happy to give hugs! Once she made her rounds in the clinic she was off to the river for a walk. She was happy to walk in the river to cool off and get a drink. She walked nicely on the leash and was eager to sniff the plants and trees. H.J. says, “It’s hard to believe she was living on a chain in a neglectful situation 6 weeks ago. You’d never know where she came from she is just the sweetest dog and has so much love to share.” After a long walk she was content to curl up in the car for a nap but she did nuzzle her way in to Jeff’s lap on the way back to the shelter.
