Arrival Story: She lived in a home with an elderly woman with 4 other toy poodles, the woman died and the daughter gave them all away free, except for one that was sick. I then got her as a birthday present.
Bio: She's absolutely terrified of my dad.(it's a whole power play thing) Which results her spending most of her time in the basket by her crate. When he's not around, she loves getting attention or lazing about around the house. She really only likes to play when she is excited. She doesn't get along with other dogs well, except for the ones she has gotten to know.(she thinks she can take them on, but at 6 pounds, I don't think so.) She is really supposed to be apricot, but looks more white..
Bad Habit: April has a bit of a bad habit. She is always licking her paws or her tongue is going in and out of her mouth like a snake. She does it when she's nervous, when she's laying in her bed, or just...whenever.
I was sitting at the computer when I noticed April twitching every so often on the ground next to me. After watching her for about 30 seconds to make sure she wasn't just dreaming, I called my mom over and she said she was having mini-seizures and was probably on her way out. It was upsetting to hear of course, even though I knew she didn't have much time left anyway. I had her take her to the other room and after a few minutes I went in to sit with her. I decided that I'd rather she be put to sleep then have to go like this in pain. She wasn't very conscious of her surroundings either and she had been on fluids for the past weeks(and more recently painkillers). I really hate to see her in this condition too.
She will be missed greatly, as she was the first dog we got that was actually mine, but it makes me glad to think she'll be with Sassy and our other pets who have passed on.
Let's start off with something fun first! My birthday was on february 4th. I turned 14!
The not so good part; I went over to the vet the other day and my liver values are high. They gave me some medicine for it, but I've been barfing up my food lately and now the medicine so they've stopped that. I got fluids today and might go on some new meds tomorrow.
