A Best Friend, An Angel for Life...
Hello, my name is Marshmallow Toast, so named because I am curvaceous ... okay, voluptuous would be more like it ... and if push comes to shove I will admit to carrying around a few extra pounds. Sadly, this is what happens when one is nourished on a bargain basement dog food from the supermarket aisle (it's high in carbs, high in fat, low in nutrition and, unfortunately for me, high on taste). To put it simply, my face was too often in my food bowl and no one gave me any exercise, so here is the outcome. Please don't hate me because I'm fat - and, girls, don't hate me because I'm beautiful (just to make things clear, the two are not mutually exclusive). Just appreciate me for who I am - the whole wonderful package - and we'll do just fine. By the way, all great love stories begin this way, the bottom line being acceptance. Just to make things clear, I'm open to transforming (starting with a low cal, protein based dog food) but will need to take my time. Let's bear in mind that all big changes begin with little first steps and I'd like to take mine on the end of a leash (a brisk one hour daily walk). Enough about my weight, though ... I'm otherwise very healthy (spayed, microchipped, current on all shots, and heartworm negative). I've even been treated to a dental as well as surgery to correct my cherry eye (and no, they did not consider gastric bypass while I was under anesthesia). You should know that I have a FABULOUS TEMPERAMENT, that I LOVE KIDS, and that you could trust me with anyone, even a tiny baby. I'll even sing the child a lullaby. Temperaments like mine do not come along every day, so don't delay. I'm a bit of an older dog (my age is estimated at 8 years old) but I am full of spunk and ready to shine. If you would like to take me home, whether on a foster or an adoptive basis, please email email@example.com or click here to complete and return an on-line application. I'll be waiting to hear from you. Carrot sticks for me in the meantime. With love from Marshmallow Toast xxoo
