Arrival Story:
Pita Pie first came to me 2 1/2 years before I actually adopted her. She was my second foster dog for Great Dane Rescue of North Texas (www.danerescue.net). She had sarcoptic mange and was about 6 years old. She was such an easy girl, only problem was her severe fear of thunderstorms, she needed someone home with her or she needed to be heavily sedated (I learned this lesson at the expense of my house and furniture being destryed). So, we found her a (what we thought) great home, I cried, but knew she was better off with a stay at home mom. Well, 1 1/2 years later, we found out that HORRIBLE family had given her away to a dog collector and we finally tracked her down and confiscated her. She had been living outside and had untreated hematomas in her ears, scars from dog bites, and was very thin and depressed. I fostered her for about 6 months this time and toyed with adopting her, but knew with my work schedule, I was not the best home for her. Again, we found a family whose schedule we thought was great, someone was always home. Turned out, they were not committed to her care and she came back 3 months later. This time, I went with my heart, not my head, and adopted her. She was 9 years old, and finally at home. I had 6 precious months with her, until she was diagnosed with liver cancer and I helped her to the Rainbow Bridge.

Bio:
Pita Pie was sent from heaven, I firmly believe that. I still suffer a lot of guilt from not adopting her from the "get go", but hindsight is 20/20. She will always have a very special place in my heart, no doggie will ever replace her. She was a gentle soul.
