My name is Casita, and if I could walk around on two legs like you I’d be standing ramrod tall with my knuckles jammed on my hips and my eyes looking deep into yours, and I’d say, “Here I am, warts and all. Are you person enough to take me on?” And you’d say, “Why? What’s wrong with you?” And I’d say, “There’s nothing wrong with me really, except for one little glitch, but I’m a people dog. I love being with people. My foster home is nice, no complaints, but I crave to have a person and a family of my very own. A place where I can take a deep breathe and say, ‘I’m home!’” And you’d say, “So what’s the hitch?” And that’s where I say, “Well…since I’m recently off the track and everything is so very new for me my curiosity can get the better of me. That sometimes gets me into trouble, but its all part of the process of becoming a pet. I learn very quickly and I promise I am worth any effort to teach me about being a pet. So that’s it, and I want you to adopt me anyway! Take me home. Make me part of your family. Help me to become your perfect companion.”
