Arrival Story:
My precious Hope was a puppy mill rescue. We guessed her to be about 14 when we lost her but considered November 24, 2002 her "rebirthday" because that's when she got her first chance to be a family member and not a puppy machine. She was deaf and had a pancreatic tumor and a liver disorder. She also had seizures controlled by medication and diet and no teeth. She had 15 mammary tumors removed. When they came to live with us, she and her sister had never been out of a tiny cage in their entire lives and related only bad things to humans. Since everything was a new experience for them, watching them explore and learn that they were finally safe was an honor. The fact that they were able to trust any human was a testament to the wonderful hearts and forgiving natures of these girls. They did not know what it was like to be held and touched and loved. In fact they were terriefied to be touched. I will be eternally grateful that I was allowed to show my little girls with time and patience that touch and love are a wonderful thing and how it feels to be cherished.

Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground

If you had not have fallen
Then I would not have found you
Angel flying too close to the ground
And I patched up your broken wing
And hung around a while
Tried to keep your spirits up
And your fever down
I knew someday that you would fly away
For love's the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to
I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground
Fly on, fly on past the speed of sound
I'd rather see you up
Than see you down
Leave me if you need to
I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground

My heart still holds you my precious baby.

My precious, precious Hope. You were the strongest most courageous little girl ever. You fought so hard right up until the end. You taught me so much about overcoming adversity and enjoying each day. You took a huge piece of my heart with you. Hold on to that piece and keep it close to you until I meet you at the rainbow bridge. I love you so much my precious girl.

Well another Monday milestone. Life is good. I've lost a couple of pounds even though I still have a major amount of bloating from the liver failure and I've been eating normally until this weekend. Mom says I'm no longer her porkie yorkie. I'm starting to get picky about what I eat now. That really worries mom. She knows from experience that prednisone makes for a very hungry girl. The vet added another special food to my diet to try to help me get enough calories so I won't get weak and quit trying. I really, really, like that stuff! I wish mom would give it to me more than twice a day. Hmmm....maybe if I keep being picky, she will. Mom's pretty easy. All I have to do is look at her with my big beautiful eyes and I get anything I want.
