All Hail Layla!

Monday, August 30th, 2010

We received dozens of entries to our “King or Queen for a Day Contest” – an awesome response! We were so thrilled to read how much you loved your dogs and what made them special to you!

After careful consideration, a seven month old Beagle Mix named Layla was chosen as our Queen for the Day! She will be treated to a day of play with her loyal furry subjects and a trip to the royal spa for pampering, followed by a str0ll around the boutique to select the best doggie amusements. Read Layla’s tale below.

Queen Layla

Layla’s royal canine court includes Wendy the Puggle as Court Jester, who always keeps us smiling and Skylar the Boston Terrier as our Duchess of Ashburn! Doesn’t she just look regal??

Thank you again for the wonderful entries. It’s clear that every Dogtopia dog is lucky to have such loving parents and they are all royal in their own rights!


Queen Layla’s “Tail” as told by her Mom Christine

Layla should be queen of Dogtopia for a day. She is a seven month old beagle mix, she has a sparkle in her eyes and a smile on her face. She wasnt always such a happy girl. Layla had a rough start to life. Her first owner gave Layla and her brother to a kill shelter in rural Virginia. Her brother had parvo but Layla luckily was able to avert any sickness from her first home. From her shelter she moved to a foster home with a rescue group in rural Virginia. After they had had Layla for three months, they could no longer care for her and moved her up to a rescue group in Northern Virginia, into yet another foster home.

When I went to meet the dogs at the adoption day, Layla and her brother caught my eye. After spending time with Layla and her brother, I knew there was something special. I found out that her brother was adopted that day and Layla was going to be all alone. That’s when I decided she was the one for me. I took her home two weeks later and it was a hard adjustment. She was shy with me, scared of dogs and scared of any strangers. It took weeks of socialization and getting her into a routine for her to come out of her shell. Now she LOVES playing with dogs at the dog park and saying hello to people on her walks. I think she has finally realized that she has a home for good and all she has to do is be one good puppy! I couldn’t imagine having any other dog. She is smart, playful and has the best little freckles on her snout :) Her story of being rehomed and rehomed has a happy ending and Layla isn’t going anywhere. She may have had been in 5 new places with new people in the first 6 months of her life but she now has one true forever home.

Layla deserves to be queen as she is the rags to riches story.


And we couldn’t agree more. All Hail Queen Layla! :)
