Happy Birthday, Angel Haylee!
Haylee you have shown me the true meaning of acceptance. When we first got you @ six weeks old, you were a crazy little terror. I taught you to "be careful around little Lucky". You always listened and somehow became his best friend. He wasn't very willing to share his domain with you, at first. Because he was a bit older, he was set in his ways. You were very careful, even as a little puppy and you made him love you. I am thankful that you were his eyes when he lost his sight. And, you were so protective of him. I have never seen such an unlikely pair. You let him steal your treats and you stole his heart. I am so proud of you for your motherly, nuturing ways. I couldn't have asked for a better partner for the little man, Lucky. You have the best qualities of your breed, which I once did not trust. When Lucky went to the Rainbow Bridge, I think that you have grieved just as much as we have. Now that we have little Boo, you again have shown us that you are an adaptable, good mannered lady. You are so gentle with your new baby sister, even when she nips you and pulls your toys from your mouth. I hope that someday, you two will be great friends, I think that you are off to a great start. Seeing little Boo sleep on you makes me think of tiny Lucky cuddling up to your bigger body.
You are an angel, Haylee. I'm grateful that I made the decision to take you into our home, years ago. The little barn bred puppy turned out to be the sweetest baby girl. Thank you for help with Boo's training, she really looks up to you. And, thank you for enriching Lucky's life, he only knew that you loved him. I can only pray that Boo turns out just like you! You were never a mother, yourself, however you have so much love to give to so many. As I always say, "good job, Haylee"!
About six months ago, another throw away pet entered our home. His name is Sidney, he's a cockatiel. He's a beautiful guy and I really like him. Mom lets him out sometimes and he sits on the sofa and I get real close to him and he pecks my nose. I whine when mom puts him back into his cage. He's my friend along with my little brother Lucky. My little brother Lucky weighs 5 lbs. and he is blind due to diabetes. Sometimes Lucky gets scared because he gets "off track" he doesn't know where he is. Because he cannot see, he sometimes wanders too far even though we have a fenced in yard. My mom tells me to go get Lucky and I find him and bring him back into the house. We have a pool and he sometimes gets behind the pool and mom can't see him. I am the most devoted big sister to Lucky and Sidney the bird is beginning to love me, too! Lucky & I sleep together and get along very well. I've proved to my family that I can be trusted with the smallest treasures. I have friends that visit and we can play without incident, however my mom doesn't trust me around all dogs/animals. I've known for chasing squirrels. I have another tiny friend who is a cockapoo, when he visits, he and I play and have so much fun. I've turned into a great example of what time and patience can bring. And, my parents know that at 80 lbs., I cannot be unsupervised around strange dogs. I do still have a dominating personality. But, with my own family and friends I'm known as just a big baby.
