Arrival Story:
I just bought my first house and need a guard dog. I always wanted a Dalmatian. So, I went to look to rescue a Dalmatian from a shelter. I called the Route 1 flea market and they had 1 Dalmatian to adopt. Her name was Emily and had no personality and wanted nothing to do with me. Absolutely no connection to me. They told me about a wild puppy Dalmatian at The Englishtown flea market. Oh! NO! They said they sent her back to the Perth Amboy Shelter. She was just too rough and energetic. I called the Perth Amboy Shelter and he said I could come down and meet her, today but I said is Sunday. He said no problem he has to go feed the animals any way and Timber was a good dog. I really liked her name. I went with my mother and saw all the poor dogs in the runs. I wanted to take them all home with me. The guy was so nice and took very good care of all of them. They had a male Dalmatian he must have been over 100lb way too big for me. Then there was Timber she was 9 months old and full of energy. I leaned over to pet her and she flung her paws over my should like to hug me and started to licking me madly. He as asked me to take her for a walk to get to know her. Well!! Do I need to say it - She took me for a walk. She was so loveable and cute. I wanted to take her home with me now. He said he wanted me to think about it and call him tomorrow. He asked for a 25.00 donation for her. I told him if I change my mind just keep it as a donation. Mom and me walked outside and I could see Timber in the run and she was so happy and wagging her tail. She was just look at me. She was so cute. My mom came up beside me and Timber began to bark at her. Needless to say Monday I went down to get her. He asked if I wanted to go get her from the back. But I knew the executer was there earlier and some of the dogs may not be there now. I just could not see which ones were missing. I hope that if anyone of you that read Timber's blog please go and adopt a dog or make a donation. I loved her so much. It was love at first site.

She is 100% Dalmatian and very loveable to me but a good watch dog. She very protective of me. However, I do not think Dalmatian are for everyone. She like having a stubborn 2 year old kid. Got to love her.

The Angels are calling - SET ME FREE

May 1, 2013 The Angels are calling - SET ME FREE – Today is the day. Mommy would not leave my side all day and gave me lots of medication to help with the pain and help me sleep. She made me waffles for breakfast. She gave me a piece but it did not have syrup on it and the next one did. I love waffles. Mommy did not want to take me outside to pee-pee. She was scared it would take too much out of me and have another seizure. She picked me up and help me stand. With a little help I could stand and mommy was happy. She encouraged me to pee-pee on the pad. I wanted to be a good dog and not pee-pee in the house but she said it was OK. She pet me and told me I was a good girl. She hugged me and kissed me all day. Around 4:00 I took a for the worst. I was inconsolable. She’d picked me up and helped me move around the bed. All I want to do is run and be a dog. She would calm me down. She told me if daddy did not come home by 5 she would call the vet to have him come sooner. Daddy called and I calmed down for a while. I saw mommy go out the door and straded to see her. Where are you going I need you – don’t leave me. Daddy saw I wanted to see mommy and he turned the bed around so I could still see her. She came right back in with two other people. Oh – It’s the vet. I don’t want to leave yet.
The vet gave me something and now I feel real calm. I can still feel mommy petting me and talking to me. “Timber it’s going to be alright now. Go home and play. Go where there is no pain or sadness and be a dog again – run free and know we will be together again someday.”
