My life has changed again!

Dear Diary,
I am only 3 yrs old. I had babies and as soon as they were walking around and eating food things changed. My master took me and my 2 friends and left us in a high kill shelter, heard her tell the man that she had too many dogs so we had to leave. I didn't like it there but I was in the kennel with my look alike sister. We were right across the walk from each other but my Basset friend was alone in her kennel and she cried to be with us but the humans wouldn't let us stay together. We were so sad. Then a lady came just in time. We were going to be killed the next day! We were together again for a short time. I was left with a man and lady with my friend but my Basset friend went someplace else. We were taken to a vet the next day and there the bad news came. My 2 friends are fine but I know now why I am feeling so bad for so long. I have heart worms and they are advanced. The vet told the lady that I will not have long to live and he would put me to sleep if she wanted him to. Well she made a phone call and next I knew I was in another home with another lady. She told me she will take care of me and I will get all the meds and care I need. She says she loves me already and I am not to worry about anything. She promised me that she will not let me suffer. She said she wil be with me when I go to the Rainbow Bridge. I like her and the man too. They are kind to me. So I am not afraid. I'll just stay as still as I can. It feels better if I stay still so that's what I do.
Good night dear diary.

 

Today was Monday.

11/15/10 Every day is a precious gift and I have found love to make the days good. This morning I had a coughing spell and my new mommy got very upset. He let me finish coughing and then she held me for a long time and gave me kisses. She said I should not be afraid because she is here for me. She and dad took turns taking me out to potty and I am a good girl cause I don't potty n my crate or on te floor in the bedroom where I stay. It's quiet in my room but I can hear the other dogs here barking. I want to meet them but mom says I am not ready for that yet. She says they are all happy and healthy and they would want me to play with them. I'm not well enough for that.

Tomorrow mom says I have to go back to see the vet. She is worried about me but she said if I wake up and feel good I don't have to go. She and my new dad really do love me. I thought my people loved me but they were not like my new family. My new mom and dad really do love me. I know in my heart they will not let me down. They will not abandon me. I may not get well but I know I am loved and my new family will not bring me to the pound. I will be happy here for the time I have left.

I took a ride to the vet this morning. He had an emergency surgery so mom and dad brought me back home. Yeah! I have to go Thursday. :(
I felt good today. I wanted to meet the other dogs but mom said not yet cause I have ear mites. She doesn't want the othere to get them.
I got my bed cleaned out and fresh linens put on my pillow too. I went out in the exercise pen and layed in the sun a while too. I had a good day.

Well I have been here for one week. It's my anniversary of being saved from Death Row. I have already come to love my mom and dad. They said they would help me and I now know they will. Mom gives me med for my heart She fed me FISH for breakfast! She poached fresh fish and put it n brown rice with green beans. Yummy! I don't get any salt but I gobbled it uop anyway. She hides me meds in my food. LOL I don't care. I know I need my meds so I gobble them down with my food. Mom puts me out in the exercise pen and I lay in the sun and just look at the birds. I like it here but this morning mom cleaned my ears. YUK! I have ear mites and there was yuckie stuff she took out. I was embarrassed. She cleaned and put drops in my ears. It felt good. She said I only have 3 more days of ear med. I'm OK with that. It feels good to have her clean them. It feels good just to be touched with hands that want to help me. I let her do what ever she wants to. I trust her.

My ears are cleaned out of those old aggrivating mites now. They don't itch all the time like they did when I came here. Mom finsihed the med. on me and it worked. I was feeling good and mom said I could go out of quarantine and be with my new friends today. She changed her mind and it's OK with me. I don't think I want to meet new friends today. I have a bad night last night. I just couldn't stop coughing for more that 2 hrs at a time. Mom and I didn't get much sleep. She is real upset this morning. She says those old nasty heart worms are clogging up my heart and that's the problem. She's not upset with me. She's upset that I am not feeling well. She holds me up so my chest is up and that will make it easier for me to breath. It did help some. I am so tired this morning. I think mom is too. She said we will take a nap together this afternoon. I think I would like that......if I can just stop coughing. Mom says I have to go to the vet again and get him to check my lungs ASAP. She seems worried about me. It is nice to have my person care enough to worry about me.

Mom has been sticking very close to me for 2 days. I started coughing and she has been so worried about me. I like the attention but I wish she would not worry. Tonight she was so happy. She heard that my sister and my housemate both have kennel cough. Mom said she thinks that I have kennel cough, not coughing from heartworms. She told me yesterday that she thought I sounded like I had kc and now she is sure I do. She is very happy cause she says that kc is no big deal. It is aggrivating but not serious. I wonder how long this kc lasts. I don't like it. I wonder if she is still gona let me sleep with her?

Today was a very busy day. Mom and dad did a lot of coming and going. One time they left and came home with 2 new dogs. I could tell they had come from animal control like I did 11 days ago. I could tell because they smelled like it and they were scared and just kind of in shock. The lady dog was black and the boy dog was tri colored. The boy was too young to be scared. I think the lady was his mom. They didn't stay too long. I heard mom say they were in rescue like me and most of my friend here. I am very happy for them both and I wish I could have told them that they are safe now. Mom said we couldn't get close to each other in case one of us had some sickness we might share. I'm very hapy for them.

I'm feeling prety good now. My heart still beats real hard and I feel better when I am sitting up than layinf down. I take my meds and don't cause one bit of trouble for mom or dad. I am so thankful for the home and love and good food I have here. I am so thankful I would never do anything bad.

Tomorrow is thanksgiving day. My dad is sick but he says it's a cold like when I had kennel cough. He says he will be fine and tomorrow we will have yummy food and take a nap and watch football on TV. I don't know what football is but I like naps. :)

Mom says I can sleep with her again tonight. I think she's going to let me sleep with her from now on. I like that. I'm tired and ready for bed now.

Dear Diary,
Today I have much to be thankful for. I still have a lot of serious health issues but I am blessed to have a home and people who love me. Mom cooked a lot today and it smelled so good. She gave me my regular baked turkey and rice with veggies. She fed me 3 small meals cause she said I would be uncomfortable if I fill my stomach. After she cooked and cleaned the kitchen I let her share the recliner with me. We took a nap! It was fun untill I had a coughing spell. I had a few spells today and mom is worried I have fluid on my lungs. I guess she is gonna take me to the vet again. She and dad are taking Karley to get a check up so I gotta go too. Karley gave me a gift on my Dogster page. :) Ms Joyce says she wants the vet to do an exam and "evaluate" Karley. I think I heard that Karley is having babies. I had babies not long ago and that's hard work. Well I took my medacine and mom is ready for bed. I get to sleep with her. Good night.

 

I'm a Daily Diary Pick!!!

Wow! I doin't know how I was chosen for such an honor but I am very proud. It's hard for us pound dogs tooo understand how some people can care SO much and other humans care SO little about us. Thank you Dogster for picking me today.

I am not doing so well. Mom called my vet but he is out of town, He said he will see me on Monday. Mom is worried about me and she found a vet who will see me Sunday morning. I guess I will see the new vet Sunday. Maybe he can make me feel better. I have a wet cough. Mom gave me my heart med. and Lasix pill this morning, She says we will have to see if that Lasix stuff helps me. I don't want to move. My heart beats too hard when I move. Mom says the old nasty heart worms are all nested in my heart and arteries and the blood can't flow like it should and that is my problem. Oh why didn't my owner give me preventative? Why didn't she care enough to protect me from this? Why didn't she love me enough to take care of me. Why did she abandon me at a high kill shelter when I needed her most? It's hard not to look back even though I have love and vet care now. I am not going to think about her ever again. Mom says she is here for me and dad too. That';s all that matters now and if they can save my life they will no matter what it takes.

Today was the best I have felt in a long time. I got off the recliner and found the big water bowl in the kitchen and helped myself. I walked around the house and found a big pillow bed and made myself comfy. Mom was so excited. Later when daddy sat to watch the picture box, I walked over and he picked me up and made me a space with him on the couch with the little dogs. I like that movie, picture box thing. It's cozy sitting next to mom or dad when it's on. I did cough today but I am feeling better. Mom is no fun. She just told dad she wants me to go to the vet tomorrow anyway. SHOOT! She says she wants him to listen to my lungs for fluid and to my heart to see if ot as gotten stronger in the 2 wks I've been on the Rx he gave me. I like to ride in the car so that part will be fun. Mom says I am feeling better because of all the Pup Pals prayers going up for me and all the pretty Dogster gufts my friends have been sending me. I think she's right! She says God loves his little dogs because we are inocent, loving, forgiving and kind. She says that their parents are doing God's will by taking care of their pups and so he hears their prayers for me too. She says he hears her prayers because she is always asking him to fix some doggie she and dad has taken in. lol Well Dear Diary, this day is coming to an end. It was a good day and if I keep having days like this maybe the doctor will start my heart worm treatment soon. Good night.
