This story is about Tootsie, who was an abandoned dog but was found by her new family in the woods nearly an 18 months ago. It was obvious that Tootsie already went through many bad things in life, therefore it took a while until she lost all her shyness and learned to trust the people around her. Today you wouldn’t recognize her again.
Emily Dini, who is Tootsie’s mom, narrated that it took a while until Tootsie went from an introverted dog to this crazy weirdo who chomps on everything she finds. Tootsie is very loud and knows how to make everyone laugh.
Tootsie admires being outside, and when she’s not able to actually be outside, she decides to look out of the window. She loves it. She’s even got that one favorite window where she always looks outside from, which normally has a curtain. But lately Tootsie whipped that curtain off ‘by accident’, therefore her family chose to put the blinds down when they left for a day.
Unluckily Tootsie didn’t like the idea at all – so she knew that’s when she had to take things into her own paws.
When Emily came home from her workplace on that day, she took notice of Tootsie’s lovely face in the window and out of nothing had a premonition about what might have happened while she was away. So Emily stepped into the house and there she saw it. A big hole in the blinds, made by Tootsie who chewed the blinds, in order to be able to keep looking outside.
Tootsie was very proud of her work, so she waited for Emily to come home and barked at her through the hole to show her what she did.
Emily wasn’t even able to be mad at her pup because she was basically so enthusiastic and glad of herself. It was obvious that she admires the hole she’s made – therefore Emily made the decision that the blinds won’t be replaced and Tootsie may keep her self-made hole.
Tootsie is even very defensive of her work and won’t share it with the other dogs of the family. Because this is HER special tiny hole.
Tootsie went from being an abandoned dog who has nothing to having a loving and caring family – and not to forget, her own little hole.
