Andre' is being taken care of and is happy in his new home. I know he is where he should be and I am happy for him. I still miss him and I guess I always will.

 

Andre' went to the vet today.

Got this from his rescue mom.

"Update from vet:
Andre' is a 'double dilute' or 'lethal white' as some call it. Which means that both parents were probably merled in color, more than likely australian cattle dog mixes or catahoula's or both. He thinks that his small size is also attributed to his condition, he was more than likely very sickly as a pup and it is more than likely he is in essence a "dwarf" or like in people, a little person he said you could almost say he is a 'pygmy'. He is sending out his blood work to see what that shows us, if $$ allows we may have a DNA test done on him to help determine his breed specifics.

As far as his hearing goes, he is almost completely deaf, but can at times hear high pitch or low sounds that cause more vibration, it is possible he thinks that Andre's condition of being a 'dbl dilute' also these dogs commonly have some nerological mis-fires, that are probably causing his hearing to be intermittent, meaning sometimes he hears somethings & sometimes he doesn't. Either way, he is in good health, Dr. Jeff thinks he is an amazing little dog, with a great spirit. He is winning hearts all over!! WE LOVE ANDRE'!!!"

How wonderful that Andre' has been picked. He is such a very special animal. I have rescued and fostered many dogs. Some I did not even make a Dogster page on. But of all, he is just the most special. He is a real Dogster Pal. He is now in a special needs rescue in TN and will after being vetted he will have a home he deserves. I wonder in my heart of hearts if he has been spared life to become a Therapy Dog? That would be so awesome. He has no self pity. He never gives up. Runs into a wall or object and gets up and goes on. Very inspirational.

Andre' is doing well. His rescue is learning as I and others have just how special he is. He will be fine and I will continue to get update on him. Have a good life sweet boy. I love you.


My Foster Dog

I am the bridge
Between what was and what can be.
I am the pathway to a new life, I am made of mush,
Because my heart melted when I saw you,
Matted and sore, scared and depressed lonely unwanted, afraid to love.
For one little time you are mine.
I will feed you with my own hand.
I will love you with my whole heart.
I will make you whole.
I am made of steel. Because when the time comes,
When you are well, and sleek,
When your eyes shine, and your tail wags with joy
Then comes the hard part.
I will let you go-- not without a tear,
But without regret.
For you are safe forever-- and a new dog needs me now.

Bye mom

Mom got me up early this morning. She took me out of my crate and kissed me and hugged me big extra kisses and hugs all the way outside. She put me in my exercise pen and I walked around and did pee pee. She brought me back inside and just held me for a while. I think she was crying...... Later she brought me outside in teh yard and I went around to check and make sure no wild beast came in my yard while my friends and I were sleeping. Rusty came out with me and then my other friends. dad was out on the driveway doing something in his truck. Mom picked me up and took me into the truck in the big crate. Mom washed my diry feet before dad put me in the crate and mom kissed me and hugged me again. Then the same for my pal Rusty. I didn't know what was happening but I knew I was going someplace. I think I knew I was never coming back to this place again. All the humans who helped me stay alive and made my life better will be in my past. Mom and dad put my favorite towel in the crate with me. It smells like home.... like the home I am leaving behind. I am beginning a new life yet again. A new adventure. Thanks everyone for helping me. Thank you all very much.

.....
From Andre's 1st Foster Mom.
So many people have had a part in helping Andre'. His life was spared when he went into the shelter. It's a high kill shelter with over 80% of the animals who go through the doors being killed. I can only believe it was a miracle that his life was spared. The employees at the shelter took care of him and marveled in his happy attitude and his sweet nature. Then when he moved up to the next level the volunteers met him and quickly became his fans. That's when I met him and became his friend. When the day came that he needed to GO I was so happy to be able to find a rescue who wanted him. He had to leave the shelter and so he came home with me. He lived with us for only a couple of weeks but it was such a special time for us. He taught me so much. How to care for a blind and deaf dog but more importantly he taught me to embrace each day with a happy heart. To find joy in the warmth of the Sun on my body as he does. He taught me not to be afraid of the unknown but to meet it head on and with a sence of adventure and expecting it to be wonderful and good. I did what I set out to do. I took care of him while he was here, I gave him love, I found a rescue for him. I know he will have a good future. He will have a home that understands his needs. He has touched many hearts here and now he will go to another place where he will teach other humans how to be happy just to be alive. I miss him already and will for a very long time. Good luck sweet little dog. God go with you and continue to take care of you.

Mommy is upset. She washed her cell phone and it doesn't work anymore. hehehe She washes my bedding and it is real nice when it come out. I guess cell phones are different. She is NOT happy.

I've been spending mornings outside lately! I love that. I get to smell all the stuff in the yard. I lay in the sun and I drink water and just enjoy being free. When it gets hot out Mom or Dad come get me and bring me inside. I have to put my boy diaper on when I'm indise. I just can't help wanting to peepee on stuff.

I am very happy and comfortable here but I know I am going to have my own home one day soon. Mama Robyn is going to get me a real good home. :-)

 

6 days here today.

I can count days. I know when I have to go into my kennel for a long time it must be night time. Everyone goes to sleep and so do I. Then we wake up and my foster mom takes me outside. I potty and just go all over the yard. I check out all the smells to see if any animals came around while we were sleeping. I stay out for a while then mom makes me put on my boy diaper and I stay inside where it's cool. I know where the kitchen is. It's easy to find by the smell. I am feeling comfortable here but I understand I will not be here for much longer. Mom says that I am going to TN and Mama bird is going to take care of me until I have my furever home. I don't think I will forget this place. They are kind to me and I feel safe. I hope they keep helping other dgs like me. I wish them luck.

 

I'm special!

I have never thought I was special until now. My foster parents make me feel special every day. My friends here make me feel special. The people at animal control made me feel special. NOW my friend named Sugar's mama made my Dogster page all pretty for me. Yep! I feel special. Thank you Sugar, you and your mom are sweet.

I missed my Foster Mom today. She went to spend the day trying to get donations for all the doggies in Animal Rescue. Dad took care of me and I was a good boy as always. When mom came home she brought me out in the yard and I got some exercise. It was hot so she didn't let me stay out very long. She gives me hugs and good food and she keeps in cool too. :-)
