Wilma, the Wonder Frog!

Wilma's foster mom has been worried that everyone will be applying for the new puppy on the available page and no one will see the glory that is Wilma.  So she wrote us a note about her:
 
"Wilma has held the title of Wonder Girl since the first day she landed in our home.
 
It's not feats of bravery or daring that have earned her the name but rather that I am in wonder of her.
 
Wonder, how much did she suffer during her life as a puppy producer? Was she kept warm and clean? Was she hungry often?
How much pain did she endure when her ears were hurting and not treated? How long did she exist without a loving touch or word?
 
Wonder, at how accepting she has been of all the new faces and places she has been taken since being rescued. Ladies giving car rides, a pilot flying her great distances...and what is this person called a Vet ? 
 
Wonder at her sweetness and her tenacity. Her non confrontational nature but her her ability to stand her ground.
 
Wonder at what her future holds when she goes to her forever home and if they will cherish her as I do.
 
Wonder, if the pain will be permanently erased from her memory as a new life unfolds before her.
 
----
 
Wilma is truly a joy. Named for her vet's grandmother, she is like her namesake, a grand lady that is loved beyond compare.
 
Wilma surprises us each an every day with a new silly antic. She is forever hauling a nylabone with her. 
She has one in her mouth most of the time. She even takes one with her when she goes out to potty!  
 
Recently one of the resident frenchies was trying to run her off from her food bowl. Instead of being confrontational, she picks up her heavy pottery bowl in her mouth and walks away with her meal to go. No drama with this girl.
 
Don't let her looks fool you, she is getting more and more active and playful. She gives it her all, but it is shortlived and then a good nap is in store.
 
She never barks unless she's dreaming and will wake herself up with a short little WOOF.
 
Wilma is a Wonder Girl.  The cape proves it!"
 
Someone will be very fortunate to fly away with this wonderful frog.  Maybe it will be you, suggests

She is beautiful! I can't wait until we get settled into our new home, and I can start applying for one of your sweet Frenchies. One would make a great brother/sister for my little Puggie, who was also a rescue.
