Arrival Story:
A breeder left Rita for dead after he used her for two litters. She had the symptoms of the Menu Food poisoning and was taken to the vet. The breeder didn't want to pay the medical bills to make her feel better so he left her. My sister-in-law knew Spartacus and I just lost Chula to cancer last month and asked if I would take Rita. I immediate liked this cute little thing. I took her home for the test, meeting Spartacus. Amazingly she took real well to him . Spartacus on the other hand was not too thrilled about having a new sister. I think he liked the "only child" feeling because he didn't have to share mom's attention.

Rita has been with us less than a month and we are all still adjusting. Her more than us. She is scared of the sliding glass door and the doggie doors. We are still trainging her to use the dog door and trying to get rid of her fear of the sliding glass door. She loves going for walks. We all walk about three to four times a day.

Rita has left me. I had her for three short years. She went to heaven on March 19, 2010. It was completely unexpected. I had no idea she was ill. She seemed in perfect health. Then one day she collapsed. I took her to the hospital and she was anemic, had an enlarged heart, bleeding spleen and masses growing through her body from lymphoma. If I could have saved her I would. The doctors said she would not survive a surgery. My heart is broken. I loved her very much. I would give anything to have one more day with her. I had to put her to sleep. The doctors said there was nothing they could do for her. They couldn’t even get rid of her pain. It is hard to put a family member to sleep. I love her very much and miss her. I think about her every day. God bless you Rita. I will see you one day again.
Love, Mom


One Year Ago

A year ago I was with this horrible breeder who didn't want me. He wanted to put me to sleep because I was sick. He breed me and took my kids when I became useless to him.

Someone thought I was special and ignored him. They decided to fix me rather than put me to sleep. I was soon given a new home and a new life. I now have a brother who I fight with and a mom who loves me a lot! She takes good care of me and makes sure I have the best in life.

I have a lot of beds in my house and I have a lot of room to sleep. I am still afraid of a lot of things but mom tries to make me feel better about them and less afraid.

I think it is my birthday and I think I am 5 year s old like my brother. Mom gives us vitamins daily because she is afraid we may not live a long and healthy life. I hope to prove her wrong. She was very sad when my sister died.

I have a lot of friends and I want to thank them for being my friends. They get me through the days.

God Bless America and everything I have today!
