Arrival Story: Hi……I was born at a Puppy Mill….shame on those people for putting us through such horrible inhumane acts all for money! Please don’t buy from Puppy Mills…Rescue until we all have homes.
Fortunately, I was one of the lucky ones, as a very nice couple bought me and brought me home to live with them…..I was just a wee pup!!! I had found my forever home….or at least I thought I had….little did I know what the future had in store for me. I guess most of don’t really know what the future holds….we just have to take it a day at a time and hope for the best, right??
I lived with my mommy and daddy, two other Boston Terriers and two cats. I had a great family….even had a litter of puppies ….I was one happy girl. My first family named me Luna.
One day I woke up to find my whole life changed…..my mommy and other fur family were homeless living in a car…no money, no food….no hope…what the heck happened to my life. My former mommy explained to me she and my daddy divorced and I guess things got really ugly and we were left to fend for ourselves….the situation for us did not look good. My previous mommy tried the best she could to care for us in the car, but it did not work so well. I was taken away from the only family I had known and ended up in foster care. Why did this happen and where was my family? I became one sad girl.
My foster mom was concerned about my level of anxiety and called me her shadow. I was truly having a very difficult time adjusting to losing my family and going into foster care….my smart foster mommy knew I had the best chance at healing and bonding again, if I left foster care quickly and found a family of my own.
I was taken to the vet and spayed, vaccinated, etc.….and told you will soon find a family…..I was so confused as I already had a loving family. I felt so badly for the pain my previous mommy must have experienced losing us all…..I can’t imagine how much it must have hurt her. I pray she is alright and knows I am alright too.
Emails went out over the pet rescue groups and sites with a plea to “take me quick” as I needed a chance to bond and find a forever family…my depression was getting worse. Imagine that…silly me, depressed…but I truly was. You see…Boston Terriers are very loyal by nature and to lose your family and home was very traumatic. I did love my foster family so much and I thank them for rescuing me.
A Golden Angel from afar visited me in a dream and told me not to worry….my new family would soon be coming to get me…..
My new family was not ready to open their hearts and lives to another doggie so soon after losing their beautiful Sissy Girl…. (my guardian angel)….they also knew they had to help as that is what they do….always helping others!
They adopted me! It was really rocky at first because they have a new rescued special needs kitty, Ivy Joy, who was not fond of me at all. This new family was not sure they were going to be able to make it work…and they had to be very careful of Ivy Joy’s needs. Boy, she was one mad kitty for a while! Phew! I am a sweet girl and never growl, bark, chase…anything…simply roll over in submission….but Ivy Joy let me know she is Princess of the household.
Another problem came about….My new mommy is really allergic to me. She has allergies to doggies and kitties…always has, but usually she works through them. Nope, not with me….phew!! She has been really miserable and struggling with her symptoms. Daddy is bathing me regularly to help with the allergies….I was scared they would not keep me…but not so, my new mommy said, “its only allergies….”
There was no way this family was going to abandoned me after all I had been through….my new mommy said she would rather be miserable than leave me again….wow….I knew I will be loved and cared for in this new family.
I am leashed trained, crate trained, potty trained, and very sweet….when walking with my mommy I still look at all the cars and people as they go by……I hope my previous family is okay.
So….as the golden angel predicted….I found my forever family. I feel blessed. I am still a little shadow and very insecure…learning I will not be abandoned takes time and lots of love…
I stay with my grandparents while my parents work….so fun….and guess what, Ivy Joy likes me now!
Thank you to my new family and to Ivy Joy for sharing her home with me…..and if anyone out there sees my previous mommy and family….let them know I am okay and happy…everything is going to be great.
Bio: Luna Rose is a full blooded Boston Terrier. She weighs 27 pounds and if full of love. She was brought to us when we our hearts were aching over the loss of Sweet Sissy Girl....and she is adding joy to our lives.
I wanted to wish you a very special Thanksgiving Day!
I feel truly blessed.
I know this has been a difficult year for many....and yet, we get through each day the best we can....we keep hope and realize that no matter what, we have each other for support…something to truly be thankful for.
Often we spend a majority of our time working so hard to overcome and deal with the bumps in the road of life that I like to get up on Thanksgiving morning and truly clear my mind allowing me to focus on only the good...the things I am thankful for. Although we try to do this on a daily basis, life can get in the way.
Interestingly enough, we have to also remember that some things which we consider to be "not so good" can still help us grow and become stronger....therefore, something to be thankful for. With most all experiences in life, we can find something to be thankful….we simply have to look and sometimes harder than others.
As I celebrate Thanksgiving, I reflect on all that I am thankful for in my life....and my heart is over-flowing with an abundance of thankfulness.
There is too much for me to simply put into words to express my thankfulness, but I want you to know....how thankful I am for Dogster/Catster, community spirit, acceptance, valuable friendships and each of you.
As I count my many blessings, I include you....and thank you to my family...what a difference we have made in each other's lives....we rescued each other two years ago this month and that is something to always be grateful for......plus Honey Bun has recently become part of our family and we are truly blessed she chose us!
Our hearts are connected by paws!
Hugs of Gratitude and lots of licks of love Luna Rose and family
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
– Melody Beattie, bestselling author and journalist
