I did not have a happy beginning. I only remember so much but I do remember the big things. I was born and 6 weeks later, I was playing with my brothers and sisters and I got out somehow. I was hit by a car and my front 2 legs were pretty damaged. I was taken to the doctors office and they told my parents to keep me protected from my siblings so I could start to heal. They let me play with my siblings anyway and so my legs did not get better. 4 weeks later, I had to go back to the doctors office and they had to amputate my front left leg. My right leg was so damaged, they had to pull my skin around it and hope it would begin to grow normally. My parents left me at the doctors office and said they didn't want me anymore so I could be put to sleep. Lucky for me, I am super charming and the doctor decided to find a new home for me.
My mom to be was told about me and came to meet me. I was so happy to meet her and drown her in kisses that she couldn't say no. I stayed with one of nice people from the doctors office for a few days while my mom prepared my new home. Then came the day I got to go home with her.
I was 10 weeks old now and still had my right leg wrapped up and had to wear the protective lamp shade on my head but I was happy. My mom took me everywhere with her. Lucky for me, she was not working at the time and so had a lot of time to spend with me. I went to school and met other dogs and learned how to behave with manners. I played with big dogs and little dogs and had the best time ever. My mom worked with me everyday and I continued to learn more and more.
Now I am 8 and I live with my mom still. My life is almost pure bliss. I wish I had a friend to keep me company sometimes though. I love when my friends and I have sleepovers or just play dates. I do get tired a little quicker than I used to, but I love to romp, play dip and dive and run around my backyard. My mom has been talking about adopting a friend for me but she will have to be at least 4 years old, and ok with me being the boss. I do listen to my mom and really she is my pack leader, but I know I will have to show whoever comes to live with us the ropes. I know whoever my mom chooses will love it here because we are very active at my house. My mom always walks me and lets me play with other dogs and plays fetch pretty well too.
I know my mom will always adopt because she is so happy that she found me. She tells me all of the time how lucky she was to find me and that I am her angel. I can't wait to meet the next angel that comes to be a part of our loving home. Many people tell my mom how lucky I am to have found her, but she always corrects them. My missing leg is more than made up for in my personality and I am a pretty darn good boy. I look forward to meeting my new sister very soon.
