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.

Our hearts are connected by paws. Lots of licks of love,
I want you to know you are my hero. I know 1-28-2013 is a bittersweet day for you....even more so, without us here with you.I know how much you miss us..we miss you, too. I am ever so grateful you have Ivy Joy and Luna Rose to share your heart with...I always told you to keep loving others as it is what you do...I am always watching over you....All of us are...CheyAnne, Sugar, Jazzi, CK, Blackie, Skeeter, Beamer, all your angles and angel friends. You are surrounded by angels every minute of ever day....you always said, "my angels were fur" and you are right, mommy, we do!
I know you never thought you would be getting more injections on the 28th....23 years after your accident.....just keep on keepin on, mommy!
Mommy, you always told me it iwas important to reflect one's journey and remember what makes you who you are today. I am doing that for you....You are an amazing lady and I admire you more than you know. I can't help but have mixed feelings either. We are all so happy you are with us, and yet so sad because of your continual pain and daily struggles. It's hard for me to imagine it has been 23 years since the careless drunk driver hit you and changed your life forever. The person you were, "died", and when you came back to us, we were so thankful.
This is like another birthday, mommy!!! I love birthdays!!! We are partying at the Bridge today!!! We have to celebrate our journeys and challenges....right, that's you taught me and I am reminding you to honor your journey and be proud of what you have accomplished.
I know as you face your continual health decline, you get scared. I know one day your body will fail you and you will not be able to walk again. Your future is so uncertain....but I believe you are never alone as you have helped so many with failing bodies, including me....there will be others to care for you and appreciate your mind and spirit.
We admire you tenacity and strength. I know I was not a part of your life then....and neither was my daddy, but if things would have been different, our paths may never have crossed. I am so thankful to have you for my mommy and so proud of all you do and who you are despite what you go through daily.
We know this day makes you sad, and yet grateful to be alive. It is a day of total reflection. That's okay. It is a bittersweet day and you are entitled to have these feelings..................if we could make you better we would, but want you to know, we think you are perfect just as you are....and despite what happens, we will always be by your side watching over you from above.
An extra special thank you to my angel sister Jazzi and my sisters in spirit at the bridge, CheyAnne and Sugar, who laid in your hospital bed and stayed by your side and helped you walk again. They watched you endure pain and stuggles unimagineable to many.... I am glad I could be a part of what and who you are now..............you will always be my hero...today, I say thank you for being alive and WALKING into my life and heart forever!!! Thank you for taking care of me as my body failed and helping me find peace at the Bridge…thank you for letting me be and loving me for who I am!!!
May you find your own strength and courage to face life's obstacles and appreciate and celebrate the rewards.
Celebrating and honoring you, mommy.
