Arrival Story:
I picked my Mommy & Daddy at the Sepulveda Basin Dog Adoption Fair in April 2004. I saw them walk into our tent and play with lots of my fur friends from the rescue. But they never looked my way. They sat down in front of me, petting Spot, my fur friend who is a deaf dalmation. I waited for 5 minutes but it felt like years...finally I walked over to them and said, "what about me?" I gave them my "look of love" and didn't stop giving them the lovey dovey eyes that I'm known for. Mommy begged me to stop. I didn't. Mommy told Daddy, "Uh oh, this is the one..." I knew this was my moment so I jumped onto Daddy's lap and gave him lots of kisses. They became my foster parents on the weekends, which then eventually extended to weeks, then months. I was officially adopted from Friends for Pets in Sun Valley in December 2004.

Bio:
Callie was abandoned by her former owner who decided that she no longer wanted to care for her. A caring individual spotted Callie and brought her to Friends for Pets Rescue. Callie was down trodden, under weight and filthy. Callie's original owner discovered where Callie was placed and went to visit her at the rescue. The founder told me that Callie's tail immediately went between her legs and she started to shiver. She requested to get Callie back but thank goodness they didn't send her back! She lived with the good people at FFP for over 2 years before finding us. She is 82 pounds of muscle, brindle colored, with a sweet temperment.

My humans have been trying to figure out why I use to have so many tummy troubles. They tried a variety of foods, sometimes I'd like it, sometimes...I just wasn't interested.

Mommy, took me to the ER and vet on a variety of occasions trying to figure out what was going on. I would scare her and she would run me to the hospital in the middle of the night. I would throw up and usually I did a soft #2 or #3. Yuck.

Mom and Dad would always have to wipe my bottom down and would say that I always had mudd butt! : ( I felt so bad about it...

Grandma use to ask why I was warm all the time and Mom was wondering if she should worry because I slept so much. She thought maybe I was just geriatric. That sleeping was natural.

Well, last month, I had major butt problem...almost like hemmaroids or something. I finally threw up a few times and had #3 too...I was sent to the ER and had to stay overnight because I was dehydrated and they wanted to do test to see if I had an abdominal tumor or something horrible like that.

I felt bad that Mom had to go into debt on account of my digestive problems. But she said it was nothing...don't fret. I really didn't want to stay at the hospital but the people were nice and I was never alone. I didn't like having to get an I.V. though, it hurt...but they said I needed to get essential fluids back into my system. I couldn't sleep all night. I was worried that I would never seem my humans again or my bed!

The next morning, my humans came to get me and they had good news. No cancer!!! I had to be transfered to my vet though, I just wanted to go home.
Dr. Sharp gave me special food, Hill's Science Diet WD and a shot. He said I could be out patient and I was relieved. I just wanted to go home.

After a few days or normal stools, Mom noticed a strange protrusion coming out of my behind. She thought it was odd and tried to pull it out and noticed that it was attached. YIKES. She pushed it back in and quickly made an appointment to see the vet again! Oh, poor mommy.

She thought it was a hemmaroid...so did Dad. I went in to Dr. Sharp and he said I had a rectal polyp. Surgery was scheduled for the next week.

I healed very fast and to my human's delight...I got stronger, peppier and happier. Mom noticed that my temperature was normal to the touch, I had more energy for long walks and I was more social. She also loved that my appetite was healthy and I had normal #2's....my reoccuring ear infections even disappeared. I feel so great, like I'm a puppy again!

Thanks Mom, for not giving up on me and for spending the money to make me better. I am grateful, forever.

 

The Story of Dogs

The Origin of the Dog.....

From a lost chapter in the Book of Genesis: Where Dogs Come From...

Adam was walking in the garden and cried out to God, "You used to walk with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonely here, and it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."
And God said, "I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourself." And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam.
And it was a good animal.

And God was pleased.

And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and he wagged his tail.

And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam and was a companion to him and loved him.

And Adam was comforted.

And God was pleased.

And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts and preens like a peacock and he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."

And the Lord said, "I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever and who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam.

And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the Supreme Being.

And Adam learned humility.

And God was pleased.

And Adam was greatly improved.

And Dog was happy.

And Cat didn't give a care, one way or the other.

 

The Princess and The Pea

I've had my happy home for over a year now and have never felt more content, secure and healthy in my entire life.

Now with Jack adopted, my heart is so happy for him...it's nice to be able to see Jack whenever I want. We both have arthritis and he loves his bed about as much as I love mine. It feels so amazing to sleep on a fluffy surface in a warm house. Our joints and muscles really loosen up.

I have a collection of beds now and I told Jack that in time, he too, will have a bed collection as glorious as my own. I have 3 beds right now, one on top of the other...my humans joke that I remind them of a story called the Princess and the Pea. It's just that I love each one so much...it's tough to let go. Right now, I have to adjust how I get in and out of my bed(s)...it's kinda higher than I'm use too..but I love it.

I also got a new green and brown corduroy jacket to protect my joints during long winter walks. I love it and so do my joints. Just wish it came in pink! I am a fashion princess after all!
