I love bein' held, goin' for rides in the car, takin' walks, when people come over to see me.
I don't like the mailman, UPS trucks, trash trucks, anyone near my yard, squirrels, bathes and Mom and Dad leavin' without me.
I have a little shaggy white dog that Mom says looks just like me. I don't thing I'm shaggy!
Chicken, stew meat, chicken, turkey, chicken, meat loaf and did I say chicken? Oh yeah, I go crazy over angel food cake. Yum!!
Usually just around the block or maybe two blocks
Ignoring Mom and Dad when they call me. I pretend I can't hear them.
Mom and Dad found me at the Humane Society. I'd been out on my own for quite awhile. Some lady found me and took me to the shelter. I was shakin' all over, I was so scared. Mom took me to the vet and he looked me over real good. He told Mom that I had been abused pretty bad at one time. I had a broken shoulder that had healed on it's own.I was real skinny. You could see every rib and bone in my body. My fur was filthy and all matted. I hadn't eaten in a real long time. When Mom and Dad took me out to visit with them, Mom said I was the most pitiful little guy she had ever seen. I don't think they were too sure about me, so I stood on my hind legs and gave them the Bishon wave. That did it, they took me home that day.
Now, I have a great home, with lots of love and good things to eat. Mom says she doesn't know what she'd do without me and that I'm her baby. I had a rough start but life is good now!!
I've lost my eyesight now, cuz of diabetes. Dr. Chris said I should adjust fine as long as Mom doesn't move the furniture. Even though everything is still in the same place, I bump my nose once in awhile.
Belly rubs, Rule!!!

We had to have Noah put to sleep 12/29/09. He had started to go down hill a couple of months ago. Christmas Eve, he started coughing non stop and it just wore him out. I took him to our Vet and while we were there, he had a Grand Mal siezure. From there, we went to the hospital where they kept him overnight and run several tests on him.
His glucose level was down to 19 which is what caused the seizure. The tests showed that he had developed Cushings Disease and that threw his insulin level off. Normal liver enzymes in a dog are around 300. Noah's was 2200. He also, had arthritis, he was blind, he was losing weight and had become more and more confused. He wouldn't have gotten any better and if we had brought him home, he would have kept going down hill and had more seizures.
I know, it was the right thing to do, but it hurts so much. My heart is truly broken in a million pieces.
A big thanks to those who have been sending thoughts and prayers our way. It's much appreciated.
My baby is an angel now and I know that he's not suffering anymore. He'll be in my heart forever and I'll never stop loving him.
