HELLO WORLD!!!! My name is Silver and as my name suggests, I am precious and only for those with a lot of taste..in dogs that is. The motto I live by is, "well behaved women rarely make history"!!! So if you are looking for a "yes" dog who will quietly sit by your side and make you look North Carolina's version of the Dog Whisperer...keep on walking! I am loud and proud and completely unapologetic about my "divalicious" attitude!
You know, I have been reading some of these sob-story bios on this site and I am appalled that the way some of these dogs whine and carry-on about their so-called difficult beginnings. I mean - have they no shame? You never heard Marilyn Monroe complaining about her life before stardom, or Vivian Leigh go on and on about how tough life was before she met Clark Gable and was in that wee little flick about the Wind. Seriously dogs, it is SO unbecoming to paint such a bleak picture of one's past. Trust me, if you want hard luck stories, I could sell you a million! Imagine, breath-takingly gorgeous dog, cast aside like yesterday's news at a Piggly Wiggly of all places (couldn't I have at least been dropped off outside Saks Fifth Avenue???), ravaged with ear infections, heartworms and a "hitch in her get up" (saying "bad hips" just seems so yesterday!), passed from home to home where she was forced to live with dogs far inferior to her splendid self.... but no! I prefer to take the high road and instead focus on the present - and how wonderful YOUR future could be if you had the wisdom to adopt me. You see, I am all that AND a bag of chips...the complete package some would say. And what do you get in this gorgeous silver and black package you ask? Read on my friends, read on!
I am 6 or 7 years young (a lady NEVER reveals her true age), I love with absolute abandon, I relish long walks along the beach (or the street, in that respect I am not picky), I enjoy cruising in the car (I prefer foreign convertibles but understand in this economy that this may not always be possible) and I am a highly competitive and accomplished ball and toy player. I require regular, daily exercise to keep my girlish figure and joints in order, and the more exercise I get, the better my legs and hind end work. I take pain meds daily, but I swear I am not an addict. I have NEVER been admitted to rehab as I know how to handle my medication and I never mix it with alcohol! I also require an orthopedic bed - which my current assistant (I REFUSE to call her my foster mother!!) will pass along to you when you adopt me. I am the perfect lady in the house (would you expect any less??) but if you insist, I can also spend time in a crate....but it better be gold-plated and adorned with jewels! Now, in return for all of these accommodations I will give you my undying love and devotion - companionship like you have never seen before. A lifetime of human/dog (Diva) memories. Not a bad deal if you ask me.
However, before you go rushing to fill out that adoption form, we need to get something straight. I do NOT do other animals. period! No dogs, no cats, no small children.... nada, zilch, nil, zero! Trust me, you don't have enough love to satisfy my needs and some other mangey creature (oops, did I say that out loud???). Although I am living with other dogs now, and you might even see some pictures of me appearing to frolic with one of them (she is a simple-minded girl and has no idea I am trying to catch her so I can bite her!!!) I am not amused with my current set up. If I had the time, I would post them all for sale on Craig's List, so me and my assistant could live happily, ever after without their distraction. Sadly though, my assistant seems to be attached to the other fur-dwellers, hence why I am looking for a new home and a new assistant...one who will appreciate me for the Diva I am! If you think you fit that bill, please put in an application and I will consider it. Trust me, it will be the luckiest day of your life if I decide to come and live with you!
So for now my fans, I must adieu! With much love, Silver XXOO
