When I was a puppy My brother Taz and I (Captain) where bought from a pet shop. Our owners took us home but they didn’t play with us much we was allowed out of our cages about 5 hours a day. We were kept in crates in a basement 12-15 hours a day because our owners worked all the time. We could hear them come home at night and was all excited thinking they would come and let us out soon but it would be a few more hours before we would see them. The basement door would open and then our cage doors we were free to go outside and play, potty, & eat. But for only a couple hours then it was back to the cage in the basement. We could hear them walking around above us hoping the door would open again and we would be able to come upstairs with them but soon it would be quite and dark and sleep would overcome us. Every morning we got out of our cages for 30 mins to eat, and go outside to potty then our owners had to go to work so back in the cage we went. This went on for the first 6 months of out lives. Then one day a lady came to see us she talked to us in a very clam and sweet voice and told us she was going to take us away. Apparently she knew about us and had talked to our owners and they agreed to let her have us. Although she couldn’t keep me and my brother together she did find him a good forever home just across town and I got to go see him occasionally. Now let me tell you about my rescue……when Mom and dad came to get me from the dark basement I was kinda scared because that’s all I knew except getting to go out for short periods of time. They put a collar on me and then a leash, I didn’t like that one bit and I was walked out to their truck. They tried to get me to jump up into the truck but I didn’t know how to jump so dad had to pick me up and put me in. It was only a short drive to my new forever home but it was very scary. When we got there all I was hoping for was a bigger cage since I was growing and my other one was getting a bit cramped. Mom got out of the truck first I saw her walking to the back. She opened the door and I could think of was RUN. I jumped out the back and took off . It took mom and dad an hour to catch me and when they did I figured ok here we go back to the cage. I was wrong though they took me in the house and showed me where I would be sleeping, on a bed right next to theirs, then they showed me my food and water, wow all the water I wanted and then, your not going to believe this, a huge yard. They said it was all mine I even had toys, LOTS of toys. At first I was a little shy but mom got me over that. I loved both mom and dad but mom was my favorite I went everywhere she went and eventually I ended up right next to her on the bed. I took care of mom thru the years would comfort her when she cried, snuggled with her when it was cold, and made sure she was always safe when we went for walks in the woods. As I got older she did the same for me she covered me when I was cold. Comforted me when I was feeling bad, and always made sure I was safe. When I was 11 years old I was diagnosed with heart worms. I also had bad hips and was losing my sight.
