Not being in the Tacoma Humane Society with all the racket and sadness of barking, whining pups, waiting to be rescued.
People that dump their family pets because of inconvenient life changes...Kharma for you people is a ^%$, isn't it?
Tennis balls, preferably with a chuckit. She likes her rope/tennis ball toy, and her new "Bite-Meez" hippo. She loves squeaky stuffies!!
Wellness Super 5 with some wet food mixed in
I love the dog park!! I don't play much, but I love to chase tennis balls, and go for walks through the woods with the pack!!
Sit and shake, still learning about what she knows...
*In the words of Bella, our female pug*
Well, we have a new foster sister, and her name is Fannie (now Sadie). She isn't a pug, (she is a mix, about 40 pounds, maybe cattle dog and retriever but smaller), but was facing death row at a local shelter, where momma went to get her. The Tacoma Washington Humane Society was filled to capacity and was slated to put down dogs starting tomorrow. Momma has lots of friends that work really hard for animal welfare, and she got an email from one about this pleading for fosters/forever homes. You all know that there are already five in our pack, but momma thought a less active small to medium size dog we could foster to make room for more dogs down there.
When momma got to the shelter, it was overwhelming. Chain link kennels everwhere with one to 3 dogs in each kennel. She walked around the barking, whining dogs, the stench was terrible, and came across a sad looking girl laying quietly on her bed. Momma read her sheet, and talked to her for awhile. On her sheet it said she was nervous (with all that barking, who wouldn't be!) and it said on her behavior assesment that it took 10 minutes for her to approach the human. But when momma talked to her, she got right up and gave momma a kiss right through the fence. Then momma went in to meet her (with the permission of the rescue group coordinator), and she came to momma right away. Fannie gave her lots of gentle love and told momma that she was scared to be there. That was that, and momma told the lady that she wanted to foster her.
After a couple hours of hoo ha, Fannie finally was able to come home with momma. She has a very slight bout of kennel cough, so momma is not letting us share toys or water, and she is on antibiotics, and she isn't spayed yet (she will be after her antibiotics are done), but she fit in from the moment she came. I didn't even get bitchy at her! She has fleas, so momma bathed her and will give her the advantage tomorrow.
She is a very sweet girl, and with some love and kindness, we bet she will find a perfect forever home, maybe even with our grammy and grampy!!
Please send warm, good thoughts for our new little foster sister. She could use some strength and hope!
Sadie (Fannie) found her new forever home!!! The wonderful woman, who is now our friend, that rescued Mo in New Orleans after Katrina, is going to be Sadie's new mom!! We are so excited!! Sadie's new momma lives near us, and we will be taking Sadie weekly to the dog park with the Black Seattle Pack. She will also get to stay here with us for a few more weeks while her new momma finishes her home remodel. Wooo Hooo!! I got's me a HOME!!
DON'T ABANDON YOUR DOG!! Just cause you got a new girley friend, or a new baby, you made a commitment to take care of your dog, and they depend on you.
Save a shelter dog!!
