"My life changed on October 11, 2010. I was near death, and my foster (now forever) family saved me! Back then, I had no fur and was skin and bones. I still have some health issues, but I am much loved and continuing on the road to recovery."
"At the vet, first day. So far gone, I didn't even know I was at the vet until he picked me up. I was so ouchy that I showed my teeth (all I could muster up to tell him I was unhappy) when he handled my legs and feet."
Pet-Peeves: Having her teeth looked at. Not being taken care of!
Favorite Food: Tuna Fish
Favorite Walk: Around the back patio
Best Tricks: Climbing onto the bench aaaall by herself
Arrival Story: Miss Watson is a foster dog. She was a stray at the shelter who had lost almost all her fur due to a flea allergy, and was skin and bones. I couldn't stop thinking about her and made sure to put my name in for fostering.
Bio: Miss Watson's first day with me, she could hardly walk or hold herself up (infact, she did a face-plant in the grass when she tried to squat to pee), couldn't hold her head up, was hunched in on herself, would not react to sounds or movements (only touch, and then you had to be very gentle with her because her entire body was painful), she had huge wrinkles of skin where there should have been fat and muscle to fill it up, her nails were grotesquely long, a flea infestation, her skin was scaly and completely sebborhea'd... and more... she was just a mess!! She has been here two and a half weeks and has made leaps and bounds in her progress.
FAQ: No, Miss Watson is not named after Emma Watson of "Harry Potter" fame. In fact, I thought she was a BOY and wanted to name her "Watson". Turned out she was a girl, so I added the Miss in front. That will definitely make sure other people don't make the same mistake I did! How embarrassing, poor Miss Watson being mistaken for a boy!
She's staying!: We officially adopted Missus on February 5, 2011! She will stay here and be loved and cared for forever.
