Arrival Story:
I had first adopted Freda Mae back on September 30, 2005...but less than a month later, she mistakenly bit my friend, Brittany, and I had to return her back to NABS. I was completely heartbroken (especially after loosing my boyfriend a few days prior to getting her, my dad let me get her as a replacement for him..bad idea). Three days after I had to return her to Noah's Ark Bayou Sanctuary...I was sent to live with my grandparents in Florida.... On January 7th, 2006 I fufilled a childhood dream and adopted my now close to 4 year old Golden Retriever, Kasey. and I spent a good 8-9 months with this darling girl. Then on November 4th, 2006...I went to Petco to find another dog, this time though, it would be a foster, who will also serve as a companion for Kasey.. and this was working out well.. the week of Christmas I was told that my grandfather was going to Nashville, to take a extra run for his job (he drives mail truck)...little did I know what was Really happening... Hey Guys, Most of you know that Freda has been living in Texas, out at the Sanctuary with all of her other pals, awaiting Me to come back when I become a professional dog trainer/canine behavior specialist this up coming year. Well, a couple of Saturday's ago, Me and grandpap, and grandma and Beth and Kasey all went up to the Bainbridge Humane Society, in Bainbridge GA, Where Beth and Kasey are from, to pick out yet another foster. Well, the orginal plan was to get another Golden Retriever that they had up there, but when they got there, they decided against it. So, the family went for a look at all the other dogs there at the shelter. They came across another eskimo mix, named "Belle" and then while strolling through the kennels, I came up to one cage and my heart stopped in my chest...there sat this little german shepher/blue heeler mix..but she looked just like Freda....I mean, just like her, so much in fact, that when I saw her, I burst into tears. It made me miss Freda so much more...because I hadn't seen her in over a year...that and I love her more than anything. So, I ended up sitting there on this floor and crying my eyes out. Tears just streaming down my I am some mad person. well, here it is, about two weeks later, and it's almost christmas time, two more days.... well, I thought My grandfather had taken a extra mail run for his work and had gone to Nashville, and would be returning today. Well, this morning, he came home, and he had called and said that he visited his friend and his friend had given him some stuff, and that he needed our help unloading the, I had to get up and everything and get dressed and then head outside. Well, as soon as I rounded the bend around the garage, I saw my grandfathers 2007 Chevy HHR's hood open..and saw what appeared to be a dog kennel door in the back...and I sat there, walking closer, and was going '"why does he have a dog kennel in the back of his car?" "there's a dog kennel in the back...why is it there?" I continued walking..and then I saw there, in the new dog kennel that we built, I saw a dog that resembled Freda and Sylena (the other dog in Bainbridge)..and I just was like "omg, is that Freda?" and then I saw her long legs and her beginning to bounce as she heard my voice, and I just covered my mouth and screamed "OMG" by the time I raced into the kennel..I just was crying...and I still wasn't quite sure it was her, until when she raced up to me, and began licking me, and rolled over and I saw her spay tatoo...I Knew for sure it was her..I just started crying. Then My grandfather told me that Pam, and Gaye and Damian all at NABS..had Freda Trained and Socialized for a whole week...she was housed with 11 dogs (this alone blows my mind..I was thinking..omg she didn't kill anyone of them?! LOL) and had some training. They made a video for me, I got to see Pam (who I miss so very much!!! She taught me so much about dogs and rescue..which i have found invaluable to my everyday life) and I got to see Damian, Freda's Trainer who also helps train some of our rescue dogs at a discounted price, with Freda and he told me a little bit of what he found out about Freda...and then I had a letter from Gaye...who had paid for this training for my baby...and I tell you what I cried...and cried. I NEVER expected this...never in a million years did I expect my grandfather to drive the near 800 miles (one way trip...that's close to 1,600 round trip) to Houston Texas to pick up my Freda Mae...but he did...and there is no words to express the happiness that i have right now..and to see her, playing with another dog...and I mean playing. Kasey is the jealous one, stirring up the trouble and setting Freda off..but it'll be alright. i Have the next two weeks off work to work with the dogs..and for this i am grateful. Freda's agression has been officially recongized as "fear agression" which I have known all along..but now I'm going to have some training and more experience in this stuff. It's going to be a long road to get all the peace back in this house, but It will be worth it. Freda is worth it..just like Kasey was worth all I've been through..and Beth is worth it. Freda is worth everything...I love her and am thrilled to have her back... =) Thank you to Gaye for paying for her training....and Pam for taking care of her for me, and Damian for working with her. Thank you to my grandparents for caring enough about me to go all the way out to texas to get Freda for me, for christmas..I wish I could show everyone this video...and if i can, I will..I am also going to be posting the new pics of Freda up soon..these are LONG AWAITED. But i just wanted to tell everyone about this happy renunion..and yes, Freda remembered who i was...and is still very much attached to me. =) Brie

Freda WAS Dog/Food/Toy aggressive. Pam, at NABS, rescued her from being euthanized and they had her in the back room saying she was aggressive. They never gave her a good enough chance. When I first saw Freda I immediatly bonded with her and have earned the nickname "Freda Mae's Momma". I remember walking past the kennel when Pam was showing us the new guys and she said "And she's aggressive so she is by herself" I answered "I think I've found my new favorite dog." (My favorite had been adopted.) Freda likes, well is in the habit of growling at other dogs if they are near me in a close radius but we have discovered that in open areas she is fine. LOL.. but if you wonder why she is called "Demon Dog" well that is for a couple of reasons one is that Danielle at Petco named her that bacause of how she sounds when she growls and some say she sounds like the "Exorcist", to me? she is the perfect dog for me! I Love you Freda!!****UPDATE AGAIN**** Freda had to be returned to N.A.B.S. because she bit my friend (not on purpose though) and my parents made me return her. I love her still and care for her always...NO MATTER WHAT SHE DOES!!! Freda, momma loves you!! ****DECEMBER 23, 2006**** Freda has been socialized and trained for a week...before she came to live with me again. Thank you to Gaye Hart who donated the money to have this training done. Thank you to Damian who was her trainer. Thank you to Pam for letting her come to Florida to live with her Mama. Thank you to my grandfather for loving me enough to go get her and bring her here to me. I am very excited about this and she is doing wonderfully!! I have added some of Freda's mates at the sanctuary on dogster in hopes that they will find their forever homes: So far Clyde, Freeway, Sadie, Buddy, and Max, Artie and Sassy are on Dogster. Clyde's ID:310378 Buddy's ID: 310395 Sadie's ID:310387 Freeway's ID: 310398 Artie: Sassy:

Diary of Freda Mae: the baby dog

[ Leave A Comment ]

December 23rd made one year of being home with my mommy.

So much changed in this past year. I've made alot of changes myself. I have learned that I shouldn't be agressive and I shouldn't try to fight with the other doggies in the household. Bol, ok ok, so i have my moments but still, I have made a really huge turn a round and mom sure don't mind braggin about it! BOL!

For those who don't remember, this is what happend,
I had been at NABS for a long time, with mom working with me while she lived in TX...and then she got to adopt me, and i got to stay with her for a month, but i bit someone accidentally and then I was sent back to NABS... Mom never gave up hope of re-adopting me, but then three days after returning me, Mom was sent to live in Florida. This was in 2005.

Mom adopted Kasey the golden retriever in January 2006. Then in November they decided to foster bethy. ..and then again in December, the family took a trip to Bainbridge Humane Society, to look at another dog to foster, While at the shelter, mom saw a dog that looked just like me, and she stopped at the cage, and even though the floors were wet with pee and etc, mom sat on her knees and cried in front of this dogs cage... she wanted to take this one with her, but she wasn't completely sure. She just kept crying...she said she missed me... Me.
A few days before Christmas, 2006, Mom was told her grandfather would be going to Nashville for a extra mail run. Mom didn't think anything out of the ordinary from it, because sometimes grandpap did things like that. Well December 23 he was back, and called ahead and said that he had some things in his car that he needed unloaded since he stopped and visited his friend on the way home and had some stuff.
Mom was told to go outside.
Grandpap left the hood of his car open, and inside mom saw a dog kennel, and she thought this was odd, so as she is walking to his car, she kept going "theres a dog kennel in his car, why is there a dog kennel in his car?!"....then she turned to the dog pen they built, and there i sat, I had heard her voice and had been boucning all around anyway...and she just covered her mouth and screamed "OHMYGOSH!!"...and at first, she couldnt tell if it was me, or sylena, but i started jumping and she knew it was me. She started bawling her eyes out...

As a Christmas present from NABS, Gaye Hart paid $150 to have me trained and socialized for a week. Pam sent a video message, and Grandpap drove 800 miles from Tallahassee, Florida, to Houston, Texas, (a 1600 mile round trip!)... all because of a love of a dog, and her human, and the love a grandfather has for his grand daughter.

I still have my issues, a year later, i still have issues that need resolving, but I have made leaps and bounds in fitting in the family and learning how to play for the first time in my life, I am learning how to play!
Mom is so proud! When she watches me, she cries. BOL..what a girl.

Who knows what is in store for me, changes wise in the new year of 2008?
Mom is going to be going to school for the Professional dog trainer/Canine behavior specialist in October, providing all goes well with the surgery and physical therapy finishes on time!
She is becoming a Canine Behavior Specialist/ Professional Dog Trainer, to help me with my issues, and then to turn around and help other dogs who have similiar issues, in either peoples homes, or in shelters and help make shelter dogs more adoptable.
sounds cool, huh?
Yeah I know!

But today is Christmas and mom was outside, taking pictures..and I decided to show her that I loved her.



The True Meaning of Love.

You think you know what the true meaning of love is...really??

True love isn't selfish
True love is selfless
True Love is going through a loss, to make a gain
True Love is Neverending
True Love is giving up what you cared about before, only to find you can't live without it
True Love is the greatest thing in the world.
True love is

What I have for my Mama. Read my adoption story and you'll see a true demonstration of true love.

Nickelback Far Away Lyrics

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of Hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything, but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

So far away
So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go

This is pawfect to describe what My mama feels.
