AireFace: Meet Thistle

Name and Age: Thistle, 3.5 years old
Where do you live? Rockport, MA
How did you get your name?  It was given to me by my rescue person, Lisa.  It is such a pretty name and I think was chosen because I am strong and resilient, like a thistle. 
What are your nicknames?  Miss Thistle, Miss Thiss, pretty girl!, peanut butter girl, Thissley.
What were you doing when they took this picture?  Enjoying my deck near the ocean.
Where/how/why did you end up in your current home?  My previous famliy couldn't care for me.  I think I was a bit wild back then but it was only because I needed hip surgery and was in pan all the time.  That's all behind me now! 
What makes you happy?  Taking care of my family - Carolyn and Hugh, running at the beach, riding in the car no matter where we go. 
What do you work hardest to avoid? Being left inside, even for a minute when someone is going outside.  I want to be included in any adventure ... even to get the mail!
Do you know any special tricks?  No tricks but I am very quick at grabbing socks from the dryer.
What do you like most about your people?  They love me to pieces, they understand my fears and help me overcome them, they tell me every day how great I am and how much they love me!
