Missy found us while serving the last day of her death row sentence at the Dallas Animal Shelter on October 14, 2006. She worked hard for our attention and won us over with her cute face and pawing through the kennel begging for a chance at freedom and life.
During her early years, she worked as a Door Greeter/Supervisor at Cool Access. She kept the staff in line and made sure everyone knew when the mail and deliveries were made. The staff paid her with French fries and a weekly hamburger from McDonald’s. She was sad when the business was sold, and she retired in 2008. She lost a few pounds afterward and missed her employees very much.
After retirement, she was a stay at home dog. She took her kids to school, her mom for walks and runs and eventually adopted a kitten. The kitten, Chloe, thought Missy was her real mom and has always believed she is a dog. One of the highlights of Missy’s life was the day she got her own dog, Bandit. When Bandit arrived for a trial visit, she and Missy started playing immediately and ran around like the best of friends. They’ve never been apart since.
Missy will be missed for always being the first and loudest to alert us of visitors, her excitement for a good dog walk, her bravery in fighting off an enemy vacuum cleaner, supervising all of our daily activities, and being the most loyal of companions. She is survived by her pack: Chloe, Bandit, Lila, Lucy, and Clark; and her family.
