Arrival Story: We adopted Buddha from the Humane Society while they had some dogs at PetSmart. I walked in to get a training schedule, saw him and his soulful eyes and three legs and he was SO CALM. I did my shopping and bought him a bed and some busy bones. I gave them to him before I left and they took him out of the crate to put the bed in. This dog was amazing. They called him Spike, he was just CALM CALM CALM. He walked around and sniffed people, little girls ran up to him and hugged and kissed his head, all the while he stayed calm and stood there. I drove the 1.5 hours home and told my husband about him. We went back to get him!
He doesn't know anything. He doesn't know toys, how to walk on a leash, simple commands, nothin'.
Bio: I had an owner before, but Mama says since I didn't know my name, how to walk on a leash, what toys were, or ANY commands - THAT wasn't much of an owner!
My old owner brought me to the vet to be neutered and my back right leg was HUGE and obviously broken. I wasn't even using it! My owner didn't think anything of it. The vet people took me in for my leg, NOT for neutering!
I got a external fixation device with pins! My owner took me home with strict orders to keep me totally quiet. NO exertion.
I ended up back at the vet with this device all broken and messed up! My owner wasn't the sharpest pencil in the box.
The vet said they'd have to amputate. My owner said to put me down, but didn't come in and sign the papers.
I was such a good boy and a sweetie that the vet did the surgery and kept me until I was healed. Then they called my owner again. They told him they did the surgery and to buy them some food or something when he came to pick me up.
He said okay.
He never came.
Can you say, HOORAY!!!!
After I had healed and TWO MONTHS at the (super nice!) vet, they decided I needed to go to PetSmart with the Humane Society and find a home.
At PetSmart, I won the Dugan lottery! Mama says it's a SMALL world. The vet is 45 minutes from her, and the town they found me in is just over an hour away.
Since Dogster is staying Dogster, we need to write more!!!!
Did you know shoes are FUN TO EAT???
I JUST DISCOVERED THAT!
The past few days I decided I needed to COMMUNICATE WITH MOMMY. The way I'm doing that is EATING HER SHOES!
I have NEVER eaten shoes! NEVER EVER! I was past being a puppy when I got my furever family, so it was never an issue!
I ate a part of her Crocs! They felt so good and bouncy on my teeth! A lot like one of my favorite toys!
Then I ate OLD LEATHER shoes! They were very nice shoes, Mama says. Maybe 7 years ago!
I'm telling Mama all sorts of things with these actions.
First, put your shoes away! Second, don't be too attached to 'stuff'. I am the Buddha, after all! Third, I think she should get rid of her old car! Fourth, I think she should wash my bedding! It's about that time! Fifth, I wanted to get her new shoes for her barkday! And I didn't really know how! So I ate her super old ones!
It worked! She's realizing 'stuff' is just 'stuff'. She's finding a place to send her old car. She's washing my bedding tomorrow. And new shoes are in the mail! And all her shoes are put away!
Am I the best dog or what???
She tried doing the, "Did you do this?" to me, with the shoe! She forgot that she taught us to love what we do and do what we love!
I took that shoe right from her and showed her how I held it down and ripped it apart!
Mama is very happy I am her doggie. She says I make sure she stays sensible.
Well we are all so sad. SOOOO sad. Dogster has grown and grown and it’s too big for it’s britches and now there are no britches to hold Dogster. So it’s ending. Over. Kaput. Done.
We’re really sad. Mama says we’re going to have to move to the book of faces with her. There’s a COOL person there named ‘Stone Gang’ who is keeping a list of all the Moms and Dads of Dogster dogs so we can find them on that book of faces. Mama is working on asking for more Dogster furrends today. She’s almost done with the A’s.
Find our furrends, Mama!! Get on the book of faces, dogs! We will prevail! Message us for our book of faces name! Or look on Stone Gang’s page! We’re there! Be there or be SQUARE!
