Favorite Walk: Squirrel run! out to make tt, cat hearding
Best Tricks: Gives you a big smooch on the mouth! sit, shake, down, roll over, not putting up with Mrs. Nesbitt's bull mess & you can spell SQUIRREL and she *knows*
Arrival Story: A day FULL of strange coincidences......my best friend and I were driving along and saw 2 young women with a large cage with 2 dogs. I could see some kind of collie and an apricot poodle. I should add that my best friend does NOT have to be asked twice to stop for critters at the roadside! LOL So she turned around and we stopped and were told that Susie (age 3) & Rusty (standard poodle, 3 mos) had to go because they were ALL being evicted from their home. The girl told me the Sheltie was named Susie Adams....and I *knew* this was my dog.
****UPDATE***** I recently found out that the "story" was a hum!...she got rid of Susie because she was infertile! The woman is a backyard breeder and couldn't return any of the investment she made on the dog. The standard poodle was ill with an intestinal disorder. She breeds pedigree dogs, popular breeds like poodles, pitts and papillons and sells them in front of wal-mart. Irresponsible breeding.....they put pedigree animals to sleep just like the mutts at shelters..please spay/neuter!!! I thank Goddess every day for sending my Souzee to me. Mrs. Nesbitt and I gladly share our love and life with her and we count her as one of our main blessings. :) The really really SAD thing? She cries for children...she would cry and cry when she heard the little toddlers playing next door. I have been bring her over to herd & lick them and it makes me cry every time. She misses her children, bless her loving heart....sadder even still, I bet her children she was removed from miss her, too.
Bio: Please consider adopting and spay/neutering a grown dog. A new dog is always fun but when you get a grown dog rather than a puppy I think it is more rewarding. I wish I could have been there for her puppy times.....we will have silly puppy times, yet! Who said getting old means no fun? I'm looking forward to seeing if she likes toys, her favorite treats and all her likes & dislikes. 3/13/07 Doesn't run away anymore! YAY! So I can't call her the Gingerbread Pup anymore! LOL Loves chewing toys and snarking on puppy snacks & chew-chews. Has stopped chasing the cats...Miss Topsy and Fluffy won't run from her so she is getting to know them. She is really fitting right in....I'm glad I'm home all day with her. Lately Miss Topsy & Shaft come in and love on her legs and she flea-nibbles & licks them. She listens very well and seems afraid she'll disappoint me. Collie/Sheepdog breeds are incredibly smart!!! She scoots over and shares her scraps & goodies and it has made Mrs. Nesbitt do the same whereas before Mrs Nesbitt has always been greedy. I think Soozee has melted ALL of our Hearts! OXOXOOX
Every time Mami plays with Mrs Nesbitt I have to give my disapproving "woo woo woo!" She knows that petting The Nez and the Kitties is off limits! I have to constantly remind her to stop that and to scratch MY BUTT! I don't have fleas or anything; when Mami first got me, every time she saw me itching myself she would scratch it for me like Puppy People should do! Why should I have to heard the cats, push all the kibble out of the bowl onto the floor, bark at squirrels and do all my strenuous jobs AND scratch myself? That is what My People are for! Geez!
Lately I have been barking at my butt because Mami won't scratch it on command like I taught her. I have been bringing her my butt comb and sticking my butt in her face like always but suddenly NO JOY!. (i have been wanting mami to upload that video but we can't afford the membership with all my health problems, we don't have a dollar to spare) Barking at my butt helps but I heard Mami telling Daddy that I only love her because she scratches my but. THIS IS NOT TRUE!
I DO love Mami and the butt scratching is just one facet of my love for her. My People sometimes get funny ideas....but still, giving up my butt scratching is just CRAZY TALK!
I'll be going back to the vet next week for hopefully my last heartworm test...please everyone PRAY that I test negative!!! Also please add my itchy butt into your prayers!
Still, as of my appointment Wednesday I STILL have heartworms! What a long, painful journey it has been for me! Dr Lamarsh says hopefully soon they will all be gone and I can play again. I sure hope so! Walking slow everyday with Mami & Mrs Nesbitt on the leash is booooring! Since I can't run around for a while she and I have been working on my commands. I like that a lot! Mami is very consistent with me and I listen to everything she says. This is why she loves me more than Mrs Nesbitt! hahaha
But still I want to run! Chase squirrels! But most of all I DESERVER TO BE HEALTHY!
I sometimes wonder why my past owner never gave me my heartworm medicine. The woman told my Mami to give me ivomectin when Mami asked about what&when for the medicine but we know now that I NEVER got it and anyone who has collie-type dogs knows that IVOMECTIN will kill collies because of their blood-group. With the severity of my heartworms combined with my age, Dr Lamarsh says that I never even got a taste of heartworm medicine!
Animals are expensive, like children or any other responsibility we need to be first on the list...not a new tv, or video games and toys. Our medicine is very important!
Which all brings me back to thanking Mami and everyone who has prayed, bought mami's clothes and jewelry in an effort to help me get well. We appreciate each and every one of you, everyday and thank God for your help. Also thanks to Miss Martha in Cali for sending us help, she is a wonderful friend..even though she is a cat person we still love her! ;c;
Well, on the 26th Mami is taking The Nez and me to the vet for our Doctor stuff. Please pray that I test Negative so my treatment for heartworms will be complete! I'll get my meddacin for my heartworms to take every month like my original owner was supposed to do. If I test positive then I'll have to get dosed with the poison until all of the heartworms are gone.
Mrs. Nesbitt is having two large fatty tumors removed. The one on her tummy looks bad but the one in her booty is driving us all crazy! She cries and rubs her booty on everything until she's worn all the hair off it. Looks kinda messed up! Mami has been putting her dresses on to go out so people won't think she has mange or something.
My Mami's birthday is on the 19th...I'm hoping by the 26th I'll know if I'm negative for heartworms...that is ALL Mami said she wants for her birthday is to Have Healthy Animals!
please put your paws together and pray for us,
