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.

Sweet Luna Rose....you are 4 months Cancer Free and that is the best gift any of us could ask for... We know the last year has been rough for you.....and yet, you never falter or lose hope....you just face life with joy and strength....you are our hero and role model.
It is hard to believe it has already been four years since you came into our lives and hearts. You are a bundle of joy and we love you so...thank you for helping our hearts heal from losing our precious golden girl, Sissy....we will always miss her (as we miss all our angels), but you have reminded us of the importance of continued rescue work and giving our hearts to others, as well. Thank you, also, for allowing Honey Bun to come into our family and find her forever home with us and loving her so...you are pawsome and we are blessed. The bond the two of you have developed is incredible.
You have been even more amazing than we could have known when you rescued us....being your daddy's caregiver and taking care of us all....you are our silly happy girl.....
You have added so much fun, love and happiness to our lives these past four years......some heartache too with your cancer....but nothing we could not get through together. Thank you for being there for us and being our special girl. We know you had a rough loss and difficult transtion to our home in the beginning....I know you must miss your other family....but we have grown into the best of friends and we are ever so thankful for you. We feel you are happy and finally know, YOU ARE HOME!!! We hope you never feel lonely, scared or sad ever again...we will never leave you...
Luna Rose, your first mommy knows you are doing well and she is happy for you.....YOU ARE LOVED. Thank you for making your grandparents so happy, too. They love your daily visits.
In two days, it will be your birthday....6 ears old. What a great week....your fourth Got'cha Day with us and your 6th birthday....thank you for picking us as your family.
We celebrate you....your smile and your happy spirit. You are a bundle of joy!!
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.
