Foster Dog Thinks She's The Annie of the House
NEW YORK - Energetic orphaned poodle Trixie created commotion in her NYC foster home, assigning herself the the quirky singer of the shelter who deserves to be adopted by a wealthy old bachelor, more so than all the other dogs, sources have indicated.
“It’s a hard bark life for us!” Trixie howled, off key.
Trixie and her fellow pups have been in foster care under the strict and mean guidance of their caretaker, Miss Finnigan, since they were puppies. A bleak life with harsh rules has led the dogs to coping through music and dance, but none as much as Trixie.
“Of all my orphans, she’s the biggest attention whore,” says Miss Finnigan while smoking and crafting herself a new wig out of dog hair.
On top of being adopted into wealth and living in a luxury skyrise, Trixie also believes she’ll find her birth parents someday, even though Miss Finnigan has told her repeatedly that they were both hit by the same car.
“My songs will bring them back to me!” Trixie explained. “And if not, they’ll at least get me adopted by someone who loves my spunk and ability to carry a tune. I don’t know any dogs who can sing musical theater like me.”
While Trixie remains blindly hopeful, her rising age is making her less likely to be adopted, especially by a rich person. Quickly approaching 12 years, every day is essentially another step closer to being put down.
“Tomorrow, tomorrow!” Trixie began singing. “I’m being euthanized tomorrow! It’s only a day away! Save me!”
Trixie and her talents are available for adoption until tomorrow at 5:00 pm.
