We moved! This time to Tucson, Arizona. We got here in January right after the new years. We moved into a 4 bedroom house with a huge fenced in back yard for us to play in. There was even another dog there to play with. His name is Dar, a GSD like us but the long haired variety. It took a day or two but eventually Sarge and Dar got along just fine. For a dog that is dog aggressive that is a huge hurdle, adding another dog into the family. All the training mom took us to paid off.
It was not to last though. Mom's friend turned out to be too mean. He yelled and screamed all the time and hurt her. One night after they were fighting mom packed us up in a hurry and we left that house for good. Mom talked to the police officers and went to the emergency room with broken bones while we waited patiently in the car. It was 3:00 in the morning when mom finally got out of the hospital. She was scared because we had no place to go that night. So she parked the car at the all night grocery store, bundled us up in blankets and coats and we slept in the car for a few hours until the morning. Mom was scared but we snuggled together and we were all right because we were together.
Mom stayed in a shelter for a week. She took us to the humane society for the week where they have a program to help women like mom. The staff that was working helped us so much. They put us in a special building to keep us safe. They gave us lots of toys to play with, fed us lots of yummy treats and most importantly gave us lots of attention and love.
Mom is working for a nice vet that has a spare cottage on her property. When she heard all about mom's troubles she gave us a house to live in. It is small, only one bedroom and not as many closets as we used to have, and not much furniture either. But moms co workers donated dog beds, toys and food for us. Plus some towels and sheets and pots and pans for mom. Mom cried alot but they were good tears. Our house is about a mile from the main road, the neighbors are far away, but we are safe because the house is on a private road and has an alarm system. Plus the boss lives just up the drive a little bit and is here to help anytime. Our house is butted at the bottom of a big mountain, the views of the desert and wildlife, the mountain and the sunsets are breathtaking. Its like God painted us a pretty picture that we get to see everytime we open the back door. The house is small and there isn't much modern convenience, no washer and dryer or dishwasher, and there isnt a lot of furniture but we have what we need and we are safe and together, and thats what counts.
