Arrival Story:
Winkie is a shelter dog. We're fairly certain he's purebred. He had already been neutered when he was turned in to the shelter. But for some reason he had been abandoned or neglected for some time. His fur was so badly matted that he was virtually mummified and unable to move. He was emaciated. His ears were so badly infected they had to be surgically removed (the inner ears), and he had also lost the sight in one eye due to infection. He was fostered by a wonderful family for almost a year, and his surgeries and care were provided through Oakland Animal Services. We don't really know his age, but judging by his teeth 2008 seems a likely birth year.

Bio:
We first saw Winkie's story on the TV news, when he became available for adoption. It wasn't the first heart-rending dog story I had seen, of course, but this one touched my heart. Maybe because he overcame such terrible odds. Maybe because I could see his "inner cocker spaniel." Anyway, after much prayer and discussion with my husband, I called to apply for his adoption. A week later we all (me, my husband and our dog Hershey) went to meet him and his family at the shelter. We weren't the only applicants, in fact we were the last, but his foster mom chose us on the spot.

Call Me Winkie!

Shiver me timbers, Hershey and I are gonna miss Talk Like a Pirate Day! You can read all about why in his Diary, but I wouldn't let him post MY pirate photo in there. Thanks to Bailey in PDPC, here it is--

It Was Notme!

August 19th 2014 5:31 pm
[ Leave A Comment | 3 people already have ]

I've been waiting to write in my diary until I knew my pals could find it and make comments. Thanks i-5 fur fixing it!!

Hershey has been telling our furiends in groups that I was a naughty doggie about ten sleeps ago, but I swear it was Notme!! See, mommy and daddy went away fur the afternoon and left us to mind the house. There have been times in the past when Notme has messed up the kitchen while they were gone. He's after the goodies in our food and treat bins. He has knocked them ovfur, and spilled the stuff on top of them, and opened them up fr a feast!! So mommy and daddy have taken to moving the bins up where Notme can't reach them.

Notme lulled my daddy into a false sense of security! This time he said, "I think it will be fine!" And they left the bins where they were. Well of course that's just what Notme was waiting fur! This is what mommy and daddy found when they got home:

Notme Strikes Again!

I got in trouble fur the mess, and Hershey got the runs from eating too many goodies!! (He didn't let me have much!) And the bins will be picked up from now on. I wonder if we'll evfur see Notme again?

 

DDP!!

[ Leave A Comment | 9 people already have ]

OMD!! Mommy got an e-mail from HQ this morning to say I'm a DDP!! We haven't been able to see a DDP list fur three or four days, so we're taking their word fur it!

That made me feel better after our pre-dawn stroll with daddy. We were walking by a hedge when suddenly a ferocious dog-eating raccoon jumped up and snarled at me! Hershey didn't even see him! But daddy and I did! We took off in one direction and the 'coon took off in the other, and we got home QUICK!

*Thanks to Tessa and Fitz fur the balloons on my page!
*Abby and Buddy sent me a blue ribbon! Buddy's a DDP today, too!!
*And I got a Big Hug AND a blue ribbon from Peek-a-Boo and his whole fambly!!
*Freckles sent me a baseball of my furry own!
*Anya sent me a butterfly, Elise sent me a flower, and Scarlett sent me a pinwheel!!
*And lookit the photo I got form my pal Cooper!!
Thanks, Cooper!!

I also wanna say Happy Gotcha Day to my pals Jack, Saige and Harley Diva, and Happy Barkday to Merlin!!
