TINKERBELL...that freakin "rat " of a sister!

Favorite Toy:
Anything that Stewart has

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:

Best Tricks:
Walking on two legs. I snore too, just like my dad.

Arrival Story:
We got Tessa when she was 8 weeks old. At the time we purchased her we didnt know she had a birth defect. (the breeder said she didnt know either.....yaa right) Her birth defect makes her have to wear a diaper whenever she is indoors. We knew in our hearts we couldnt give her back to the breeder because she would just have her "put down". So, we feel she is with us for a reason. Tessa is alot of work but we wouldnt trade her for anything..... well maybe.......:) (LOL )UPDATE: Sept 14, 2007 Today Tessa got spayed. I always just put it off because I thought why bother, she has a urine dripping problem. Her Vet told us that is was best that we do spay her for her health. Today when she got spayed the Vet checked her problem out on why she drips urine and its NOT what we thought!! (ectopic Uterer) She is actually "hooked up" correctly! Tessa Vet is going to try different drugs to see if we can help stop the constant dripping of urine. Her sphincter muscle does not close properly.

You wouldnt believe that Tessa is only 5 pounds because she has a Doberman Pincher attitude!

Today I spend my first birthday without my Pawrents and siblings at the Bridge. I know it will be a sad day for my Mom because she misses me. I have my big sister here, (Chelsea) so that makes it better.


Goodbye Tessa......

Its with great sadness that I must tell my friends that Tessa was helped to the Rainbow Bridge on Friday, February 11th 2011. She got very ill suddenly the night before. Her body temp dropped so low that it would not register on the vets thermometer. Everything happened so fast. Tessa could not stand up with out staggering and falling over. After hours of trying to get her body temp to normal and after x-rays of her tummy (she had bloody stools and was vomiting)and countless test to see what was wrong she was not getting any better. I asked the doctor if she was suffering and he said, No, I dont even think she knows whats going on. She was unresponsive. Than I had to make that dreaded decision if I was to send her to the bridge. The doctor said I was doing the right thing. He thinks she had a tumor in her stomach. Her x-rays of her stomach were so cloudy that you could not even see her intestines. Its one of the hardest things to do. She was such a little pain in the booty but when they are gone you realize how much they are missed. ~RIP~ Tessa, you were loved and always will be missed.


I lost my "womanhood"

Today My Mom took me to be spayed. She said I wont have those nasty "periods" anymore. Thank God, the PMS was way to much to handle. My Mom is bad enough. BOL! While the doctor was "in there" she checked my problem on why I drip urine and its not what we thought! Im hooked up correctly down there.....Thank you very much! I have a weak sphincter muscle. The only problem now is we dont know why. ??????? After I heal from my surgery, My Doc (LOVE HER!) is going to try some different meds to see if they can control my problem. That would be really cool. Im five now and still wearing diapers! I never get to go out in public cuz everybody stares. (and thinks Im a chihuahua) So thats pretty much " life in the days of Tessa". Peace, my friends!
