I am safe. It has been such a bad time. I was living in prison and I was next to die. I was so scared. I hadnn't have a bath in a long time and I smelled so bad just like the prison. I was in a kennel with 2 large pups and they kept climbing on me and they were so heavy. They wouldn't leave me alone and they ate almost every bite of food that the guard put in the bowl. I slept on the floor because the pups had the bed for themselves. I was so miserable. The days just dragged on and on. I knew my time was running out but I could not escape the high walls. One day I saw the vet and they did a test on my blood and that was when they said I had to die or go to rescue because I have heart worms. Rescue?

As time went by, I gave up and just waited for them to kill me. Then yesterday morning the prison guard came and took me out of my cell. I thought my time was up. She gave me to a man and a lady and they put me in their suv and we went for a long ride. I laid still and didn't make one sound. When we got to this house my life changed. The lady said my new name is Kate and my new life has begun. They are nice to me. I first had a bubble bath and my ears cleaned and I just felt so much better I wagged my tail to say thank you. I ate a big bowl of food that the lady gave me and no big pups to take it away from me!It was so good. The lady brushed me and hugged me and the man and lady rubbed my belly and talked so nice to me. I have a kennel all my own here and I am inside where the temp is perfect. I feel safe here. I am going to be OK.

 

What happened?

Early this AM they got me up and I didn't even get breakfast or so much as a drink of water! We went for a ride and ZI was afraid I was going back to the prison. They took me to a vet!!! The people were nice but I fell asleep. When I woke up I felt so strange. All fuzzy in my brain! It was hard to stand up and I wanted to sleep. I don't know whay the people did it to me but my belly has a cut on it. I know they gave me shots too. They cut my nails and I had to take some medacine. I heard them say I had worms but the med. would kill them. WOW! I feel Yuckie now but the mom person says I will feel better tomorrow. She gave me a little food and lots of water if I want it. I ate the food and I feel better. I think I will be OK.

 

Feeling good.

The lady here said she is my foster mom and the man is my foster dad. She told me they are going to take care of me and find me a good home. They are so nice to me. I eat lots of food and I get lots of hugs. They make me take medacine though. They hide it in food so it's not so bad. In fact I think it's working. I have my figure back!!! Mom said all those nasty worms that were inside me are dead and gone. I look good again. I feel good. I like it here and I am feeling much happier.

 

Yeah!

There was a lot of celebration here today. My housemate Parker was adopted. He's a sweet Boston Terrier boy. They say he got a good home. That's a good thing.

I felt so much better today. I even played. I still can't play with my friends but I will be able to do that soon.

I'm a DDP today......on Mother's Day! That is the most special gift my foster mom could get from me. She says the best gift is that she knows I am feeling good. I was a mom once. That was a long time ago. Mom says she and my new vet know I had pups cause they can tell. She said today is for me too. My foster mom wispered in my ear "Happy Mother's Day sweet Kate. I bet you were a very good mother to your babies". I was!I'm so proud that Dogster helped me make my new mom happy today. Thank you Dogster. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms who read this. Have a great day. ~~~butt wiggle~~~

 

I'm free!

Mom let me loose with th eothers today and I love it. She was all surprised when I went out to potty. I learned how to go out the doggie door and so I go out to potty. That's no big deal. I still have medacine to take every day but that's OK. I have to go to the vet and get my stitches out and start heart worm, treatment soon. Maybe later this week. Mom said I have to be all clear from the kennel cough.I feel good.

I like my foster home. The other dogs here are real nice and I am making friends. It's going to be nice staying here. I feel comfortable.

My knee hut tonight. I was playing kind of ruff with my friend Heidi and it started to hurt. Mom said she thinks I have a lucsating patella. That is not a god thing. She says she is afraid I will need surgery and if I do it will cost a lot of money, hurt me and take a long time to get well. She also said she's afraid it will hurt my chances to be adopted. Not good news but she also said for me not to worry about it. She said that is her job.

I got 2 new friends yesterday. One is a tiny little black terrier mom calls Willow. The other is a Boston Terrier biy she calls Scooter. Scooter is in quarantine so we don't get to play with him yet. Willow is real nice. She is not ready to play yet. I will give her time to understand she is safe and then she will want to play.

I went to the vet again. I like her. She is a real nice lady and a good vet. She checked me out real good. I don't have worms. I don't have baby heart worms but I do have adult ones in my heart. I have a Luxating Patela. My knee cap is on the side not on my knee as it should be. It makes me walk funny and sometimes it bothers me but not often. The vet said I need surgery. Mom said she can get it done for me for $700.00. I think that's a lot of money for her to come up with. I know the rescue has a lot of dogs to take care of so it would be hard for them to pay it. Mom said she is going to find a way to get it for me. She seems very sad since we went to the vet. I think she is worried about me and about me having surgery. It will be OK. I know it will be OK.

It was a nice 3 day weekend. Of course here it's always the weekend. My foster parents are retired so we go with the flow of an easy life.
Mom and Dad went and spent much of the day doing a fundraiser for ARF-LA. That's te awesome rescue I belong to untill I am adopted. They sold yummy food, had fun stufffor kids and games for dogs. Mom had the adoption booth. They said it was very hot and dry and dusty. They were so tired when they got home and Sunday they didn't do much but stay in the air conditioned house. I stay where it's cool all the time. WeLLLLL sometimes I go out and sun myself.
I'm feeling OK. Mom says she is very pleased that I am doing well with my knee. She said she wants me to be careful not to hurt it so we can get the heart worm treatment finished before my surgery. I do try but I love playing with my little buddy, Puffin. He's so much fun.
I'm going find Puff. It's time to play.

 

Poor Buddy

Buddy is not feeling so good today. Mom had to give him meds for pain. She is talking to his vet tomorrow and she said Buddy will probably be leaving tomorrow for the Rainbow Bridge. She said he is not enjoying life anymore and she can't stand for him to be in pain. She said she loves him too much to let him suffer. She's real upset and I saw her crying when she hugged him good night. I will miss Buddy too. He's my friend and the big brother to all of us. He's been the big brother to lots of dogs since Mom and Dad started fostering. He has helped a lot of us feel wanted and loved.
