Reporting Live from VerMonti!

Hi friends! 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer. As many of you know, I’m summering in Vermont and having a fabulous time! So far, I’ve visited the capital, which I think should be renamed “Monti”pellier and have gotten to know the locals.

But, I know I still have a job to do as the ECO at my very pet friendly hotel in Washington, DC so this week, I’d like to introduce you to Sochi!

About Sweet Sochi

Sochi has been through a lot in his first three years. His owner chained him up and often usually forgot to feed him. A kind-hearted shelter worker saw him living outside, unprotected, when the polar vortex hit earlier this year and bought him a dog house but the owner left it just out of reach for poor Sochi to get inside to keep warm.

Finally, the owner gave him up, now blind, emaciated and with frostbite on his nose and ears. The local shelter got him treated, fed him and looked for a rescue to give Sochi a home. He is completely house broken and crate trained. He is remarkably calm and gentle and even though he no longer is able to see, he is incredibly smart and adapts to his surroundings quickly.

The ideal home for Sochi would be where he isn't alone. Another dog (or two) would be great but of course Sochi would prefer to be with his humans.

Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll be eating ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s – I hope they have chicken ice cream!
