Arrival Story:
Mommy kept her eye out for a medium size dog.... She decided to look in the free pet ads and it said "3 free Katrina rescue dogs and 3 cats" so she called and they had me (a beagle mix)...... An hour later she was there waiting to look at me, then my little face peered the corner,.... She had to get me!!! 2 Days later I was at their house!! Tessa had to be put down at 5am November 9Th 2009, exactly 4 years and 2 weeks after we abopted her. She really was like NO other dog, and there will never be another like her. I miss her so much. But we think she had cancer, and during her last few hours she was in much pain. She was crying and couldn't get comfortable, she lost a lot of weight in the days before and couldn't hold food down. We couldn't let her linger like that.

I have hypothyroidism and allergies.. I was a locked in a cage and my owner never cleaned it... For 6 months I sat in my own waste and got urine burns and skin tumors because of it.. Somewere along the line I kept having puppies and my body absorbed my front teeth.. I was finely rescued at the age of 7, I was cleaned up and spayed.. I also got some bigger skin tomurs removed(they were not cancer or anything bad).. Then my mommy came along! Right after mom claimed me a human with 5 little kids came in for me.. That would have been a terrible home!! I was alredy taken! I'm scared to death of thunder and rain, when it thunders I hide under my grand pawrents big bed and shake. When I was first adopted I would squat at the sight of a hand coming toward my head, but the humans just trying to pet me. I didn't know that because human hands caused me pain in the past.

Tessa had changed a lot in the last month. She was pigging out on food, eating 1 and a half or two times her normal portion. She got to the point where she seemed to enjoy being outside on potty breaks, sniffing around. Watching squirrles and birds, but she had never been like that before.

She never had problems with holding food down, sometimes she wouldn't chew up her meaty bones enough and she'd have to chew them again. But on Thursday the 5th of November she threw up her food, but she ate again that night and held it down. Then on Friday she didn't eat until late. Saturday and Sunday she refused to eat, we syringe fed her. Still, she would throw it back up.
She lost a lot of weight in those few days. And something became noticable, the left side of her rib cage stuck out.

By 2am Monday she was in a lot of pain, medicine didn't help. It was getting worse, she was put to sleep at 5am. Monday November 9th.

Everything points to cancer of her stomach/intestines. Called Leiomyomasarcoma

I miss her like nothing else. But it was her time to go, I didn't want her to hurt anymore.

We had her for exactly 4 years and 2 weeks.

I was tagged by Bingley so I tagged my 7 best friends.

Here are some things you might not know about me.

1) I love my raw diet, I get beef, pork, chicken, rabbit, deer, goat and just about any other meat you could think of.
2) If you scratch my back my legs go crazy!!
3) I snort like a piggie when I'm happy :-)
4) I miss Buster.
5) I'm part Ameriacn Pit Bull Terrier.
6) I enjoy walks.
7) I think I can kill huge cows, but for some reason mamma says I'm too small.

I already tagged my friends, now YOU'VE got to tag 7 more.
