Since Sony went to his new forever family two weeks ago, he’s been nothing but wonderful! Three weeks ago, Sony was rescued in the nick of time from Miami-Dade Animal Services, a high-kill shelter in Miami. (Read our previous post about rescuing Sony the Schnauzer mix here.)
We fostered him for a week, until his new family (my parents and little sister!) could arrange to get him to his new home in South Carolina. It was a long week of waiting for them as they prepared to meet their new baby. It was a fun week for us as we got to spend some quality time with Sony. My dad was in Miami on business and after saying goodbye, we handed Sony off to him at the airport. Sony flew home in the cabin with my dad, where he was a wonderful travel companion– even when the flight got delayed and took hours longer than expected!
In his new home, he’s been getting lots of loves, learning new tricks and even going to work with my mom. At her company, everyone is allowed to bring their dogs to work 🙂 It’s pretty awesome.
My sister gave Sony the new name Nietzsche (Nich-a). Nietzshe was a 19th-century German philosopher known for his substantial influence, radical style and deep central philosophy. Our Nietzshe is a black wiry Schnauzer mix who gets nothing but love– from his humans and canine companions, Ace the Maltipoo and Patrick the Wheaten Terrier. Sometimes he and Patrick have small tiffs but I’m told Nietzshe holds his own, just like any typical Schnauzer 🙂 His favorite things now are playing with his toys and Ace, snuggling up with his humans, giving kisses (still!) and acting as a little shadow.
“He really knows he was saved,” My mom told me. “I didn’t realize they know.” And oh, they do. Please consider adopting, donating to or volunteering at a shelter, spaying/neutering your pets or fostering homeless pups– every little bit makes a difference!
