Mommy wants to write about me, so I am letting her....
Dear gentle fur-faces, I want you to know about my Mickey.
Well, Mickey is a wonderful little fellow that my heart needed when I was mourning the loss of our first born fur-son, Grizzly. He was almost 16 years old, and had a bad heart.
So, I got this cute little fellow that LOVED Sammy, and Sammy loved him back! But he was afraid of humans (we were told he was born to a feral mom at Stanislaus Animal Shelter and the momma was euthanized, but the pups were rescued, fostered, and all but Mickey were adopted).
I was beside myself because here I have this pup, but I can't touch him, or hold him. I called the foster mom, and she said if I didn't want him to bring him back. WHAT??? No way!
For months, the only way I could get him to come to me was to step on his leash, and make him come... We went to obedience school, and he did very well, but was still afraid of all the humans (loved the dogs).
Well, today he is just over 3 years old, and still is shy if a stranger looks him in the eye, but he will come up if you aren't looking and sniff your hand.
But he is my baby, and comes to me and will crawl into my arms now. You gotta love that!
