Arrival Story: Louie is a rescue who came all the way from Kansas. I picked him up from Kansas and drove him all the way home because he couldn't fit in the Sherpa bag to go on the plane and I didn't want him to go in cargo -- so we got to know each other very well. He was given away because he had very bad dry eye when I got him-- but since he had surgery on his eyes, he is much more comfortable. He is my very special, special boy.
Bio: Louie has two sisters -- Ella, the cairn terrier and Miss Marigold the pussycat.
When Marigold came to live with us, Louie would have loved to eat her up -- but he manages to control himself simply because he loves Mommy -- and he knows that Miss Marigold is also Mommy's baby.
Miss Marigold tried to use that to her advantage for a little while and would cling to Mommy -- and when she walked anywhere and the dogs were within swatting distance, she would try to take a swipe.
One day, Marigold was leading the way in front of Mommy down the hall. When she was passing Louie who was waiting for Mommy, she tried to take her swipe. Louie grabbed her paw in his mouth...........and Marigold cried and cried. Mommy looked at her paw -- there was no blood -- but the message from Louie was clear...........it was obvious that he planned the whole thing. That was the last time Miss Marigold ever took a swipe at Louie.
