Arrival Story:
Growing up, animals were always a huge part of my life. There were dogs in the house before us kids, so I'd always "had a dog" but I wanted a dog of my own for a pretty long time. I saved my pennies for about three years and did a lot of research and thought about the perfect breed for me. I was sixteen years old when I finally got the dough saved up and the go-ahead from the folks, so I started looking for a Papillon at last! It turned out to be a tougher task than expected. Most breeders were not only few and far between, but also put off by my age. I ended up finding a BYB/puppy miller through a Dog Fancy ad who seemed, at first, to be a responsible and ethical dog breeder. I thought I knew the right questions to ask, but apparently she knew the right way to lie. I ended up with a pup who was seven weeks old, coated in fleas, with tapeworm, coccidia, and a lot of nervous tendencies. I was a bit sad that pet therapy (i.e. visiting nursing homes and such) would not be in our future, but I just shrugged, took the ferret to the nursing home instead, and loved Eppy exactly as she was. I wouldn't trade her for anything.

I don't know what I'd do without my dog. She's my companion, watchdog, and tiny protector, but most of all she's a source of joy and love. She saw me through high school, college, and a lot of tough transitions including multiple job changes and deaths in my family. She's always there, and even when I'm not perfect she loves me for who and what I am. Her devotion never wavers and she's taught me things I never knew I didn't know. I hope each day that we'll share many years of being together.

My Tail of Devotion for Eponine

If possible, you grow more dear
to me with every passing year.
Your eyes are filmed with telltale glaze
but hold me still in loving gaze.
Your face is frosted, just a touch,
and so I love you twice as much
as yesterday, for in our prime,
perhaps we never felt the time
as now we feel the push of days
and vow to hold them close, always.
With you I share a bond so pure
that ever will our hearts endure.
Not even our mortality
can keep your love from reaching me,
so when I slumber, if you've gone
your legacy would carry on
in dreams we'll romp, in spirit play
'till we should meet again someday.
And this I vow, if I should go,
I'll be with you, and you will know.
And always find, through any dark,
you'll know true friendship by its bark.

This is a special Tail of Devotion

My Poor Neglected Doggy Diary

I do not write in here very much. It's because I'm so busy! I have a lot to do; chasing the squirrels away, being a good watchdog and letting my people know EVERYTHING that is going on around the neighborhood, getting my belly rubbed, asking to have a toy thrown so I can shake it, and maximizing my sun-ray intake by napping near all the windows so that I can store enough heat to keep all this furry energy going.

Mommy had to get a new job in another town. So, I get to stay with Grandma, in the house I grew up in, until Mommy's new house is ready. I like Grandma's house very much. Sometimes I miss Mommy but she comes to see me on the weekends. Mommy says that when we get our new place I will have my very own little yard. That means I will not have to share with Grandma's cranky terrier. Ha Ha!

Whoops, I hear a squirrel, gotta run!


I'm Seven!

Mommy says I'm a big girl!

My birthday was May 19, and now I'm seven whole years old. I've been with my mom longer than a lot of her person friends.

My birthday wish is that we go for more walkies. Mom doesn't take me on so many lately, something about the weather not cooperating.
