For a teeny little girl Violet sure does have a lot of love to give. There’s pretty much nothing she doesn’t love. Her list of favorite things are: snuggling, playing with other dogs or a playful kitty, toys, going on walks, car rides, and hanging out with us humans at the local cafe. Violet is looking for a home with another young, playful dog, preferable close to her size. A home with daily walks and copious amounts of snuggle time are on Violet’s wish list, too. If you’re looking for a companion to join you on your travels up north to avoid the heat or trips to San Diego to enjoy the cooler weather, Violet is the dog for you. She is such a well behaved, easy going, loving gal.

I kept hearing about how much fun Jasmine was having at these rehearsals, how many new friends she was making, and how she couldn’t wait for “Opening Night.” I didn’t pay too much attention. I just paid for the costumes, bought tickets for a performance, and occasionally picked her up after a rehearsal and raced her to her soccer game.
