Sissy, was Lisa
Posted on January 31, 2020
Three years ago, we came to Issaquah to meet a funny looking little girl you called Lisa. She had big ears—one standing a little higher than the other—and was covered in white fuzz resembling wool. We fell in love with her on the spot!
She showed no fear while she transitioned into her new life. She met each challenge head on, seeming to believe her tiny body was as large as any Saint Bernard. She was renamed Sissy, the nickname her sassy mom had acquired when she was young.
Sissy was thought to be a Maltipoo, but we eventually concluded she must be a Choodle. Whatever mix she is, she has no enemies. When she sees animals on TV—especially dogs—she barks at them, whether real or cartoon. She runs to all people and expects them to pick her up and adore her! She’s happy being held when you’re standing, and very much a lap dog when you’re sitting. She also loves to play with her squeaky babies, hopping after them like a bunny when they’re thrown across the room.
Sissy’s relationship with her housemate (Tadpole, a 10-year old mini Poodle), has evolved over the years. They’ve gone from tentative acceptance to playing and challenging each other to laying together on a warm lap. They make us laugh every single day.
Our decision to adopt through PUP was one of the best! We tell everyone about the way your animals are fostered and prospective parents receive a report about their behavior as part of the adoption process. We also respect the care you take in vetting we nervous prospects. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
