Arrival Story:
We went to our local high-kill shelter to look for our new family member. We went to look for a dog that other people might pass up - one that was in danger of being put to sleep. After circling the place, and writing dogs down three times, Nuka was the very last dog we wrote down. She was behind a bed, and black, so we didn't see her until we came back around on our very last trip we were going to make. Every dog we asked about was a dog that we could not have. This was going to be our only opportunity to make it to the shelter for another month, so we had to choose one that was available that day. Out of the entire list, Nuka was the only one that was not dog-aggressive, and that was available for adoption. So we adopted her. The vet that they took her to called me Tuesday morning to let me know that she was heartworm positive. I told them that we still wanted her and they went ahead with the spay operation. I got there to pick her up that afternoon to find out that, not only did she have heartworms, but she also had a terrible case of hookworms, was sneezing and had nasal discharge, and was also pregnant with 10 puppies before her spay surgery! Unfortunately, the surgery had already been done and there was nothing I could do for her puppies. But she is now safe tonight (July, 5th 2011) for the first time in who knows how long!! But she will never have to go through that, again!

Mom is so happy for me today. I have shown my first bit of improvement! And I'm happy, too, because I can finally smell things again. I just had to test it out as soon as I realized that I could! I sniffed EVERYTHING outside.. and smelled so many different smells on the ground, from other dogs to people and cats! I feel so much better now that I can breathe. And the pain in my belly seems to be going away a little bit, too!

I also don't have to pee as much, and can hold it better. I think mom is really happy about that, since that means that she doesn't have to clean it out of the carpet. It still burns me a little bit.. but it feels like it's slowly going away. I can't wait for it to be gone for good!

I just feel so happy in my new home that all I want to do is wag my tail and follow my new mom all over the place. And my new brother is so nice to me, too.. he even let me have his bed since he can tell that I don't feel good! I think he must be a smart doggy, just like me.

But I'm still a little on the sleepy side, so I think I'm going to end this entry here and go back to taking over Toby's bed. Good night!
