James and Abigail

I volunteered for a few hours on Thursday night at the emergency warming center and had the pleasure of meeting James and Abigail. For the fourth night, both were at the center to get a break from the frigid temperatures.

I could only dream having a dog who behaves like Abigail. She ate her food like a lady, went outside for a quick break and then snuggled up in her kennel for a good night’s sleep.

James showed me one of her tricks. Instead of asking her to shake, she prefers, how do you do? And when I said those words, she put her paw out and politely shook my hand. It’s nice to know that American Red Cross provided a comfortable place for James and Abigail to spend the night.
