Adoptable Cuties: Meet Annie, Oliver & Nicole

Today was a trying one for yours truly. The general pattern (if in fact there was one) seemed to be people trying to get on my nerves. A number of them succeeded in this endeavor beyond their wildest expectations. This is no small achievement. Inasmuch as I talk a good game the fact of the matter is I am a peace-loving individual. Life (READ: being a former civil servant) has taught me patience— even if it is derived from the “give them enough rope” school of thought— is a virtue. It is for the aforementioned reason that after receiving a salvo of abuse from a particularly nasty individual I was amused when she tried to storm out of the junk shop in a self-righteous huff —only to discover she couldn’t figure out how to open the door. It is such small vindications in life that make it worth living.

Another thing that makes yours truly’s life tolerable on days such as this are fur kids. Now that I think about it I have one that has mastered the art of opening doors. Perhaps he could give the aforementioned person some pointers? But I digress. Needless to say after the previous fiasco  I was very excited to swing by Dog Habitat and make the acquaintance of some lovely adoptable cuties in need of loving, permanent homes. Who cannot help but smile when meeting Annie, Oliver and Nicole? As you will see!


These two 17 weeks old Shih Tzus were recently turned over to Dog Habitat because their owner lost his job and experienced a family emergency. In other words, he was not in a position to take care of them and elected to do the right— if emotionally painful— thing: place them for adoption. It was “nap time” when I swung by today so Annie and Oliver were in rather subdued (but very cute) form. Here’s a video of them in (in)action while Jay tells us their story.


Conversely, this young (1 year old-ish) lass was very eager to get out of her (admittedly luxe) accommodations and get some lovins! I’ll let Jay take it from here.

Anyone interested in making the acquaintance of Annie, Oliver, Nicole or any of the other lovely, loving companions* Dog Habitat has for adoption should contact them via telephone at (347) 601-8678 or via email at: rescue (at) doghabitat (dot) org. In closing, I’d like to mention that next week the guys (and ladies) of Dog Habitat/Unleash Brooklyn will be having a fundraiser with a distinctly Valentine’s Day twist:
