Arrival Story: At the dog ranch I was living the dream with my brothers and sisters until one day, Mommy had found a ad for husky pups for sale. Well... someone accidnetly
recycled that! Then, the next week they found an ad that said: "Bichon/Poodle x for sale," We wanted to go see these pups right away. A few days later at the ranch some people came looking for a puppy. They immediately ran towards me! Then with nervousness and a bit of naughtiness (like always!) I escaped the kennel and began a giant cat chase mouse game! Soon they caught me and took me to my furever home!
Bio: Snow passed away March,2,2013. Here is his story:
One day Mommy came back from running errands. I was away napping. I woke up and went upstairs to Mommy. When I reached the stairs suddenly my leg pulled down and stayed there. I yipped a few times but I was brave. I was really scared what was going to happen to me. I walked to my bed but instead of getting right back up I scooted with my leg still down. Mommy told Daddy about my leg and he put a blanket over me and softly petted me. They had scheduled an appointment to see the vet. The day I went to the vet the dogtor sed that I had to stay at the office for three days so they can examine me and give me special treatment. I was used to staying at the vet but not to be checked up on! The vet shaved part of my leg and gave me IV's. The vet said I got a fever too. Probably from the shock. When Mommy took me home I was a mess. I went from one leg being paralyzed to both the hind legs. The vet explained that I had a pinched nerve in my vertabrae and if I wasn't up and walking and showing any signs of recovery I was going to stay like this. That day I posted a diary entry and pawmailed to my furends asking for POP and pawrayers. The next day I wasn't up and running. I was lying down there trying to get up with a worried and sad look in my eyes. Mommy cooked for me. I spent three days at home. On the last night Mommy went to see me. My eyes were bright and filled with happiness. I was licking mommy's face and was so happy. I was trying to tell her to be brave and was telling her it's time to join the fur angels at the bridge. Mommy understood me and began crying on me. That night I felt horrible but was doing anything I could to make my people cheer up. My stomach was super bloated because I couldn't squat down to make a bowel movement. Those three days my bladder could never contain itself so I ended up peeing everywhere. Mommy and Daddy just cleaned up my accidents because they knew I was trying my best. The next morning I found myself at the vet surrounded by all my family members. Mommy and Daddy had a very sad conversation with the vet. All my family members began crying on me, giving me kisses and hugging me. I felt bad for making everyone so sad. I tried to tell everyone that I would be ok and no longer in pain. The vet stroked my fur and I could feel that he was looking for a fold of skin near my neck. With one sharp little pinch. All the pain seemed to go away. I was at peace and floating away on calm seas. My promise to Mommy and Daddy is to take care of Snoopy and to not worry because I'll be waiting for her at a happy place called the Rainbow Bridge. Where every angel fur is running free with no pain and ilness. I miss them so much and they miss me too.
Forums Motto: You say naughty like it's a BAD thing!
I promised Mommy I'd watch Snoopy moments before I crossed the bridge. But I'm starting to think I'm wasting my time... He is CRAZIER THAN ME!!! He runs around in circles, spends all night howling, is obsessed with MEATZ™ and there's WAAAAY more I don't even know about him! Even as a puppy he's like this! I wanted him to be real naughty but he is sooooo well behaved!! I think so well behaved Mommy misses the sound of something breaking! And the garbage can doesn't even have a scratch since I crossed the bridge! Gotta go, I STILL love to take my naps!
Snow, I remember the day we brought you home. You were so happy and filled with energy. You would be with us for 7 years. You were more that a friend Snow, you were family and dogs are the family we choose for ourselves. Seven years later you got your bad leg. Your last night was so hard. I felt so bad to see you struggling to get up. My choice was hard but that night I hugged you and cried so hard becuase I knew what was coming. The next day we had to put you down. But it's ok Snow we know you are safe at the bridge now flying free with no pain in your legs. Snow, you are the best dog I could ever have. I just wanna tell you the reasons I miss you:
1. I miss your soft curly fur and when you would cuddle with me on cold nights
2. Whenever I felt sad you would always cheer me up.
3. I miss your naughtiness like your over-night trash raids
4. I miss your sweet face and big round eyes
5. I miss your long baths and getting all soaked when you shook your fur.
6. I miss when you would beg for food and jump up our knees
7. I miss how happy you would get when I came home. I remember you got your pinched nerve when you ran up to me
