Last Friday I helped my mom choose a new best friend.  We first went to the Sacramento City Shelter, where there were few dogs to choose from or any that hadn't already been spoken for.  We ended up at the Sacramento SPCA, where she chose (or was chosen by) a little Yorkie/Shih Tzu mix named Peanut.  When we went out to the get acquainted area, he leapt right up into her lap and stayed there.  What a perfect lap dog!  Just what my elderly mother needed.  He has been renamed Piccolo.  New leash on life, new name.  Mom adores him, and he's a perfect companion for her.  He is eight years old, which qualified him for their Senior Adoption program.  More about that whole experience in an upcoming post.  But for now here's photographic proof of a happy ending for Peanut aka Piccolo and for my mom, who has been without a dog to love for far too long.  I noticed an immediate difference in her after adopting him.  I'm so happy for her and for Piccolo.
