I'm only a year and a half old, but my life has already been quite challenging. I was born on February 14, 2005 and I spent the first year of my life in a crate at what humans would call a "puppy mill". In February 2006 (the same week that my mommy and daddy adopted my brother Milo from the Delaware SPCA) I was taken from the puppy mill and placed in a shelter. Lots of doctors took care of me and 5 months later I was ready to find a real home.
Prior to my rescue from the puppy mill, I never learned about nice humans or where to go potty, or even what it felt like to be loved. But things have changed.
When my new mommy and daddy learned that the Delaware SPCA was going to have some papillons for adoption, my mommy got very excited and convinced daddy that my big brother Milo needed a playmate. Mommy and daddy came to see me at the shelter and they brought Milo with them to make sure we'd get along. Milo didn't really want to play, but mommy fell in love with me and even daddy cracked a smile. They brought me home on Monday, July 3rd, just in time for the Fourth of July fireworks.
Mommy and daddy decided to name me "Zelda", after daddy's favorite video game. Mommy thinks I'm a princess just like Zelda in the game.
I've been at my new home for 3 days now. The first 2 nights were very scary because there were lots of loud fireworks outside. My new big brother Milo and I were afraid and we cried most of the night. I'm glad we don't have fireworks every night!
Mommy is very happy that I am learning the rules of the house. I sit on the kitchen floor with my brother and watch mommy cook dinner. Daddy and mommy take me for walks with my brother and I'm already learning how to walk on a lead! I am even learning where I should pee pee (NOT in my crate).
Mommy is taking me to the doctor tomorrow and next week I get my sutures removed from my spaying surgery. I can't wait until I'm all well because I want to play with my brother! I think he's starting to like me.
That's all for now. Maybe when mommy has some time she can help me write another diary entry!
