Love Thursday - Max's New Girlfriend.
Her name is Gioia (Joy), I guess her to be about six months old and she belongs, unfortunately, to people who don't take good care of her. She is the sweetest Terrier mix puppy you could imagine, all love and kissy face and smiles-- but is hungry all the time and never allowed inside -- and they yell at her. We can hear them yelling at her (can you imagine yelling at a puppy who just wants you to love her?). Which breaks my heart. One day I put her under my jacket and she proceeded to fall asleep - immediately. She hangs out up here with Max and me most days, where she gets all the loving and treats we can give her. I would take her in a heartbeat, but don't want "problemi" with these particular neighbors. Gioia is a little confused -- where is her real home? Their property joins ours on one side so she runs back and forth. I am a little bit confused myself as to what to do, so we just try to help her when we can.
But at least she has us to come to when the chips are down, right?
