Uber feels right at home in new home
Amy Day, District 5, Downey Maintenance
If you don’t recall, Uber was the five-week old puppy that was found last October in the District 5 Downey maintenance yard. He had been trapped in guardrail for three days. He had been rained on, snowed on and had survived freezing nighttime temperatures. Plus, his paw was squished flat in the guardrail. The Downey/McCammon crew patched him up and took him to work to keep an eye on him.
Before long, Uber was even suited with his own state I.D. badge.
Last fall, I began taking him to work with me and decided to adopt him. He even quickly learned the difference between my I.D. badge and his own. Uber will fetch either one, too (for a treat, of course). He still likes to come to work occasionally to chase the birds and the rabbits … as long as they aren’t near the guardrail.
When he is at home, Uber’s favorite thing to do is swim in the pool. He climbs the ladder, drops his ball in, and jumps in after it. Then he’ll swim to his floatie and just chill out. He also loves to ride in the golf cart, fetch Frisbees and play with his big sister Swoozie, a Great Dane.
His personality is hilarious. He has become a faithful friend and a loved family member!
