Name: Cash, as in country singer Johnny Cash, 1961 batting champion Norm Cash, Wimbledon tennis king Pat Cash, and professional wrestler Porkchop Cash — although I suspect that Porkchop may not be his given first name. By the way, after you get me home, feel free to change my name. Let me put this another way. I'm begging you to change my name.
Birthdate: January 26, 2016. I’m in the prime of a dog’s life, not too young, not too old — just perfect.
Ethnicity: I ain’t nothing but a hound dog … and shepherd mix. Here’s my sad tail. I’m a shy girly-girl pooch in need of a loving family. I was given up by my previous owner because a neighbor complained that I barked too much in the backyard. What do you expect when my owner didn’t allow me in the house! All together now: Boo! Hiss! You suck!
I weigh about 50 pounds with medium energy, just right to snuggle on the couch with you for a night of TV. I’m friendly, but cautious, with other dogs. Here’s some good news: Because I’ve been at CAP more than a month, my adoption fee is 50 percent off. As with all CAP graduates, I will come to you with a certified bill of health and several other goodies.
(Just a parting comment here, shout out to Rene Rovtar. I found her on Twitter. Get this, she is superintendent of schools in Montville, New Jersey, and a Top 10 competitive eater. That makes her the greatest two-sport star in history. Bo Jackson, give me a break. Let me see him down 40 hot dogs in 10 minutes, and we'll talk.)
Come and get me: I'm available for adoption at 11 am Friday, July 5, at Citizens for Animal Protection (17555 Katy Freeway; 281-497-0591). Tell them, "Ken sent me."
