Another Goobersmooch Angel

Mom and I are so sad today. See, our Bootsie Bear passed away from Ehrlichia - a tick borne illness. He was an old guy - even older than me, but he hasn't lived here with mom as long as I have. It makes me sad whenever we lose one. Mom and I have been through a lot - she lost two precious pups before rescuing me, then after I came to her, we lost one of my babies the day she was born, then my Katrina Shelter buddy, Fritzie. After that, my bff Gonzo died in mom's arms, then old Gertie. Things were quiet for a year or so after Gertie died, but then my son, Boudreaux got cancer and died six weeks after being diagnosed. Shortly after that, Gabby died of a brain tumor and then Moses from lameness. Now Boots. He was one of my bff's too. We shared a yard just the two of us. We were friends. It's hard dealing with all this - for me and for mom. Momma cries and cries and then looks okay and then starts crying again. Me? I just lay around. I don't want to go near Boots' crate where he died, and I didn't want to say good-bye when Momma gave me the chance. I've just seen too many of my friends pass away. I know they're waiting for us at the Bridge, but it's hard. I miss them.

 

Let's Help Kick Cancer's Butt!

Most of you already know that I lost my little boy, Boudreaux to the evil "C". Now, he has a chance to help raise money for cancer research so that we may have a time when no humans or pups have to suffer with cancer!

Boudreaux is in the 2011 Cancer Can't Keep A Good Dog Down Calendar contest! My little boy could be a Calendar Boy! All we need is to be in the top 13 of the fundraisers. Here's the info:

All proceeds raised will go to 2 Million Dogs Foundation, a 501 c(3) organization whose mission is eradicating cancer. 2 Million Dogs is working to achieve that goal through education of the common link between cancer in pets and people and funding comparative oncology research. To learn more about 2 Million Dogs, visit our website: www.2milliondogs.org

Mom entered Bou as a way to honor his memory - and hopefully find a way to kick cancer's butt so no more precious doggies have to suffer through this awful disease!

Could you please spare a few bones for this cause? We'd really appreciate it!

Here's the link to Boudreaux's fundraising page:

Our Friend Rosie is Missing! Please Help!

Rosie escaped the morning of 11-5-09 from her pet sitter's fenced backyard. She actually managed to unlatch the gate and presumably is headed for home. Her owner is one of my best friends and was scheduled to go out of town today hence the need for a pet sitter.

Rosie is an adult, female, German Shepherd with a very black colored face. AC saw her at North Star and Northwest Blvd. at 10:00 AM this morning but couldn't catch her. If you find her or think you've seen her please call 614-297-8380 or 614-787-1405. She is normally a friendly dog but was very scared when she was last sighted and took off running. Please let us know if you see her.

Rosie was wearing a pink gingham collar, she has all her tags on.

Please help me spread the word to anyone you know who lives in the Columbus area. Share this message on Facebook and retweet on Twitter.

We are worried sick for Rosie's safety.

Thank you for any help!

Please see FindRosie.com for more info!

My Gotcha Day!

Oh boy! Today I have been an official Goobersmooch for two whole years! It's such an important day for me, because when mommy signed those adoption papers, I knew that I was gonna stay here with her forever! I pretty much knew that anyway, but it was still nice for it to be official!

I love being here with Mom, Dad, my pup Boudreaux and all the other Goobersmooches (well maybe except Aliah...she chews on my ears too much)! I am one lucky girl to have found my momma!!!

Thank you to my friends Yoshi and Kazu, Sienna and Zuki and the Plott n' Pibble Pitties for the rosettes and gifts! You made me feel so very special!

 

My Tail of Devotion for Goldie

Sweet Goldie,

You won my heart the very first time I laid eyes on you at the Hurricane Katrina Shelter. I cried when I heard how your family simply dumped you in a Wal-Mart parking lot because it was too much trouble to take care of you in the aftermath of the hurricane. You were known as "Little Wal-mart" at the shelter. You charmed everyone with your sweet face and soulful eyes. I couldn't stop thinking about you and made sure I got to walk you every day.

On one of our walks, I sat down on the ground and you crawled into my lap and rested your head on my shoulder. I promised you right then that Iwould find a way to get you out of there! A few weeks later, I was able to do just that! You came to live with us as my foster doggie, not long after we learned you were pregnant and heartworm positive. Two weeks later, you gave birth to six beautiful puppies. Unfortunately, one of them didn't live but a few hours.

You have given me such joy since the day I saw you. You are such a sweet, pretty girl who never fails to show me how grateful you are for giving you a home. I was so happy to finally be able to make it "official" and adopt you as my own! You are my baby girl and I love you so much! You have given me a beautiful boy in Boudreaux, and a lovely sweet soul in you, my Goldie-Girl.


This is a special Tail of Devotion

Sneaky Mommy

My mommy is pretty sneaky...of course anyone can be if they work as hard at it as my mom. This morning, knowing cheese was the only thing I'd eat, she crushed up my pill and rolled tiny cheese cubes in it until all the pill was covering cheese. Then, she wrapped the pill covered cubes in sliced cheese and pressed it together. I didn't even realize I had taken my medicine! I'm glad she did that, because by lunchtime, I was feeling a little better. Mom gave me some chopped chicken and boy was that good.

When mom came home from work, she started cooking. She fixed me some cheesy noodles with chicken and carrots (and a dusting of pill and parmesan). That was even better than the plain chicken! My ole pal Butchie is right about that cheese stuff - I LOVE it!

I can't believe how many people have stopped in to wish me well. I am a little overwhelmed - I mean, I knew my dogster friends are the greatest, but WOW! It sure helps when you know you have friends pulling for you.

Well, I'm kinda tired and not feeling so perky, so I'm gonna go rest! Thank you to all my dogster friends! I love you!

 

I Hate Heartworms!!!!

February 1st 2006 6:11 pm

Today I had my second shot for my heartworm treatment. I didn't feel very good afterwards, and I didn't eat much. Mom said I have to stay crated for 30 whole days! No playing with Little Bou or the others. That stinks! Mom got me a great big crate that has room for about three of me, so at least I'm not totally cramped. She said the vet told her to keep me crated and quiet so my heart rate stays down. The vet told mom that I should stay crated because of how sick I got with the last shot, and that was only one shot! I got one today (it hurt bad, too!) and I'll get one tomorrow. I really don't want to get another one. Around March 4, I'll get one more shot, but it won't be the same as the others, and it shouldn't make me sick. Ten days after that, I will be tested for heartworms, and hopefully there won't be any! If the test comes back negative, I'll be heartworm free, and have a follow up test four months later.

I can't wait til it's all over! Mom says after the heartworms are gone, she can officially adopt me! I'll get to rest and play and be a regular dog for a few months, then I'll be spayed so I won't have anymore puppies. I love all my babies, but it would be alright with me if I didn't have to go through that again either.

Mom's being really good to me! She bought me some bully sticks and chew bones to keep me occupied while I'm stuck in my crate. She's trying really hard to keep me happy and entertained. I'm glad I have a mommy that loves me so much!

 

The Story of How I Got Here

January 9th 2006 8:40 am

Last night, mom was talking to a lady who was at the shelter the night I got there...Mom didn't know the whole story until last night.

See, there were some people that fled Hurricane Katrina, and they were staying in there vehicle because they did not want to leave their dog at the shelter and stay in a hotel. Well, they were at Wal-Mart getting a few provisions when they saw a car stop in the parking lot, throw me out, then leave. It was raining, and I was cold and scared. The nice people who were fleeing Katrina picked me up and took me to the shelter. A couple days later, this lady came in and was helping walk all of us doggies, and when she looked at me, she gasped and petted me and told me how beautiful I was. She was so nice to me, I wished she would take me home. She came back everyday and made sure that no matter how many other doggies she walked, she got to walk me, too. After all the chores were done, she would come sit by my cage and pet me and talk to me. She told me that she loved me the first time she saw me and that she would do everything she could to get me out of there to live with her! I was so happy! I couldn't believe it - here I was thrown out of the family I loved for some reason I don't know, and someone said they loved me! She made good on her promise, and I have been loved ever since!

Mom cried and cried and held me and cried some more when she got home. She said she couldn't believe someone would just discard me like that. She promised we would be together furever!

Thanks mom! I love you!

 

Bittersweet

Today was a bittersweet day for me...my pups all found new homes. I miss them, but I know it has to be this way. I just hope they will be loved like me and Boudreaux are. I am so happy to be with my mom! I'm happy too, to have one of my precious pups with me, even if he is a bit of a bully!

It has been a rough week! I have been coughing and choking and just feeling horrible. I've been coughing so much, I throw up. I can tell mom's been worried - I can see it in her face and feel it when she pets me. Mom's had a lot going on this past week - taking care of 4 pups, taking care of poor Fritzie (he was neutered this week), taking care of me, and still making all of us feel lucky to live here! I love my mom!
