I'm feeling better and I have gained 1/4 pound since my foster Mom picked me up at the pound. It seems like a lifetime ago. I have plenty of good food to eat, a soft bed for naps and the big bed with my new parents at night. There are NO fleas here!
I didn't much care for Bella and Buddy the first couple of days here but now I like them. They like me. Buddy and I take naps together. Bella shares everything I want with me. She's silly but I know she is young. I heard she is only one yr old.
My Mom gives me medacine every day and vitamins and stuff too. She says It will help me to feel better and it's working. She tells me every day that she loves me and she is going to help me feel really good. She says my coat is going to shine like Bella & Buddy's and I won't be so skinny in a month or so. I love to sleep in her lap and to sleep with my Dad in his big chair too. Sometimes she looks sad and she keeps saying " I love you little girl. I wish I could keep you but you will have a home with someone else after Christmas. I will make sure they are good to you and I will never forget you." Maybe I will have a home with kids to play with. I may go to a home where an older person lives and I can sit with her or him all day long. I don't know where I will go but I know my Dad, Mom and ARF will make sure I am safe and happy. I am a lucky girl.

Missy is our ARF dog. (Animal Rescue Foundation) We have the privaledge of being her family on her way to good health and a loving home.
Missy has been here only 6 days today. How can you come to love so much in only 6 days? She is calm and quiet and loves to cuddle. I don't know if that is because she is not feeling well or it's because she knows if she moves around very much she will have an attack of coughing. Maybe it's just that her life has not been the kind one of playing and being happy. There is a lot of wisdom in her big brown eyes mixed with the sadness.
She has 4 more days of antibiotic to take them we will go to the Vet and find out when she can begin the heart worm treatment. I am giving her vitamins, fish oil, and premium food in an attempt to build her system up. There are so many illnesses in the pound that she was exposed to. I hope she will be OK.
It's turning cool here but her loving foster Dad bought her a pretty sweater so she won't be cold when she goes out to potty.:-) If love and good Vet care can save an animal and make them happy then she will truly be a happy, healthy dog one day.
