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.

We believe a mothers' love is unconditional. It is rare and uniquely special. Many women in the world don't have human children, yet give of themselves and their hearts as a mother would to a human child....we furbabies are always our mommy's "children" and because of that, we are lucky enough to have known unconditional love. I have the greatest mom ever!
My mommy always wanted human children and yet, her life is so blessed with all of us who have been her "children". she gives of herself to others as a mommy would give to her children. She is a "mother" in every sense of the word....all of you are.
We are so grateful our grandma is home and with us.....as she is our rock and inspiraiton. We are blessed. Please take time to tell all the moms in the world, thank you...
" Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you'll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you'll find that you have more of it."
Thank you Mom....thank you Grandma....thank you everyone for your love.
Happy Mothers Day. May it be filled with Sunshine and love.
"What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace."
We love you all and thank you from the very depths of our hearts for the gifts of frienship.. Thank you for all the support as I go on my cancer journey.....and for helping my mommy smile more....
Here is a special poem a dear angel friend gave me.....
"I AM YOUR DOG…..
I am your dog, and I have a little something I’d like to whisper in your ear
I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there, often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life
Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle. You smile at me. I see the love in your eyes
What do you see in my eyes? Do you see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time? That is all I ask.
I ask you to slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me. So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that computer screen, of others of my kind, passing away. Sometimes we die young…and oh so quickly and suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to notice until the very end, when we look at you with our grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep, to run free over the Rainbow Bridge.
I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes, that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at yourself that you did not have just “one more day” with me. We have NOW, together. So come, sit down here next to me on the floor and look into my eyes. What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart. Come to me not as “alpha” or as “trainer” or even “Mom and Dad” – come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another’s eyes and talk.
I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or our walks together, or even life in general. You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things with. Someone very different from you, and here I am. I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you as a “dog on two feet”. I know what you are. You are human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.
Now, come sit with me, here on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper into my ear. Speak with your heart, with your soul, and I will know your true self.
We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short"
Luna Rose was such a sweet girl....very long day for us both. This is schedule will be tiring, but worth it. She is glad to be home and is my cuddle bug......they suspect she will be having side effects in 1-2 days and we will start meds tomorrow to help....next treatment is Friday after Christmas. We are going to be even more tired and more financially challenged, but that is okay.....praying Luna Rose does well.
Poor Honey Bun is feeling like a step child and does not understand why I take her to my parents in the morning and drive off with Luna....Honey was distant and going into her crate....she is confused and I don't want our bond to be hurt....gosh, our animals are so sensitive to change. I am juggling the best I can...
Everyone, please learn from Luna Rose....Mast cell is common, unpredictable and can be fatal....it does not have to come in the form of a lump, bump or tumor....it can be atypical, like hers, and only appear like tiny specs of dry itchy skin.....please get all those little places on your dogs checked and if Mast Cells are present...get them removed. While some are slow growing....others are very aggressive, like Luna's....no one would have ever imagined hers to even be mast cell....let alone the highest grade and most aggressive form. Never.....Cancer be gone. Please keep sending power of the paw for my girl.
