Arrival Story:
I was heartbroken after my beagle was put down.I knew that I wanted another companion to keep me company.I asked my husbandif I could adopt another dog,and he said give my heart time to heal.He said wait two weeks.Day after day went by,and two weeks came and I knew that I could really love another dog,and told my husband that yes I was ready to love another dog.I found her purely accidentally on the Hearts United for Animals website.There was page after page of loving adoptable dogs waiting for a good home.But I looked at the dogs,page by page everyday.I would write down the dog's name,you know..."just in case".Then I would eliminate the ones too big.But then I came to Bessie's photo.I was immediately smitten with her.Now you have to know one thing...Bessie lived in Auburn Nebraska,and we lived in Michigan.I hadn't see her before adopting her and knew about how she arrived there,but never met her.After sending in my adoption application,I was approved,but was waiting for a home visit that was required.It went well...the home visit.On January 12,2006,we,my husband,MIL and myself made our 1200 mile round trip journey from Michigan to Nebraska to adopt her.And since then,she has moved from Michigan to Florida with us.

Well Bessie has an oddball blended family that includes humans and animals..We had 2 pink eyed white rats(both males) Fuzzy and Little Bits,who went to the RainbowBridge as Fuzzy had a stroke,and Little Bits had cancer in his head;A blue parakeet who is mama's Senior boy...Angel;Thumper the guinea pig all are adopted.Bessie's brother Copper went to the Bridge on 12/7/2006.Her friend Macracken recently went to the Bridge on 12/3/2008,and Bessie's cousin Tasha went to the Bridge 2 years ago.We also have Bessie's brother Hunter a 6 year old Beagle.Then there are George(female)a grey tiger,and her mate Oscar,a black and white Tuxedo cat and their 5 kittens:Mr.Chin(his whole name is 'Mr.Chin',OscarJr,and Boots,they are triplet Tuxedo kittens,Bear a solid black girl,and Oddball a solid grey girl.We had a grey tiger girl,TigerLily,but she got adopted.We kept the 5 others. The humans include Bessie's mom and dad,human sister Nikki,and grandma and grandpa.Thumper the guinea pig has gone to the Rainbow Bridge and so has Angel the parakeet.My family has expanded.We have three more cats.Two are sisters,Frisky is 4 years old and is a Calico and Meow is a long haired cat.We have a 8 month old kitten mama named Nipper that was born to a semi feral mom.Mama pet Nipper so when animal control was doing a cat roundup in our mobile home park,mama picked Nipper up before she was picked up and put to sleep.She is a black and white Tuxedo cat.We also have a new human baby.My huma sister Nikki has a baby of her own...Isabella Ann,who is now 15 months old.And soon,mama's oldest human child,Amand is coming to Florida to live with us.

Ok soon mama and the family will be getting ready to hear the arrival of new family members.George the cat...YES....a going to be a mama soon.Sometime we will be having more the house.George and's Tuxedo cat and the dad of Miss George's babies are enough for me to tolerate,but KITTENS!!???
Yeah that means when they have their eyes open and can walk that means they will be running all over my TERRITORY....aka the house.But if they leave me alone,we will live in total utopia.I'm glad i am unable to have anymore puppies.


I had my rabies shot yesterday.

Mama said that I had to go and have my rabies shot.She is afraid that I might get bitten by a wild critter that may roam around in MY yard at night if I am outside.
Ok.Mama said "Bessie,do you want to go for a car ride?"Of course I said yes,didn't she see the tail wagging 100 miles per hour?I was very excited that I got my pink leash clipped on to my collar and get to ride with mama in the car.
Mama and I sat in the back while daddy drove.I looked out the window just to make sure mama was safe.Well the car finally stopped.
Daddy got out of the car and opened the door for mama and me.
I sniffed the parking lot and the bushes.They smell different from my yard.So we walk to the building.Daddy opens the door and mama and me walk in.
Oops...I didn't like this place,so I immediately put my brakes on and refused to step in any further.That is until daddy picked me up.
Darn him.
Then this old man walks around the back with a carrier in one hand and this big old fat cat on a leash.I,of course ignored both him and the fat cat.
Then I heard :blah,blah,blah Bessie.Daddy put me on the scales to weigh me.I am proud to say I weigh 32 pounds.
So the next place we go is in a room.Oh boy.Off goes the leash.Some strange lady picked me up and held me,but I kept an eye out for mama in case she decides to leave.But...she stayed right there.
This little short lady in a white coat showed me this thing.She stuck it in my ears to look.Yeah I still have two ears,now please remove it from my ears,thank you.Then she showed me this other thing.She listened to my heart.I am still alive.
I really didn't like it when she was messing with my hips.So I smiled at her in a not so friendly smile,and I growled at her.The lady holding me said "if she growls again,muzzle her."I hate being muzzled.Hmmmph.
Then it happened!!!Ouch!!!She stuck me in the butt with a needle.That was my rabies shot.Good,its all done.Now I wont have to have my rabies shot until September 19,2011.
