November 17th 2005
chasing squirrels, eating lizards and toads, running up and down the fence line with Sinbad (the dog next door)
being away from mom, diesel engines (like school buses), noise, decks that mom tears apart, flying bugs
a leopard print ball
homecooking, cottage cheese
Down the street, turn around and come back
she plays soccer with her leopard print ball, picks it up with her mouth, throws it in the air then runs after it. She does the same thing with the frogs and lizards she catches. When I get home in the afternoon, she sings at the door until I open it!
In June, 2007, my friend Ginna, who works at the local animal shelter, told me they received a chi mix at the shelter and that she was so sweet. That was all I needed to hear, and I let the shelter know that I wanted to adopt her. They remembered me from when I adopted Daisy, so Twiggy and Daisy and I went to meet Lily to see how we would get along. Everyone was fine, so we left the shelter that morning with our new baby girl! The shelter named her Mallory, but I named her Lily so she could be one of my flower girls!
"My previous owners underestimated me. They underestimated my will to live, my strength to love and my determination to be happy. Since they were through with me, they just dropped me off at the nearest high kill animal control with not as much as a kiss on the cheek. My new name is Mallory and I am a Schipperke/Chihuahua mix born approximately 1/06. I am current on shots, have been spayed and have tested positive for those nasty heartworms. CAAWS will pay for the treatment if you adopt me now. I just love human attention. I loved to be carried around, played with, talked to, slept with, etc. I wouldn't mind other dogs my size, I tend to ignore cats, but small children and I are just two things that do not mix well. Sorry about that, but they tend to make me nervous and then I get nippy when I'm on my guard."
That was Lily's bio from Petfinder. Because I adopted her so fast after CAAWS rescued her from a high kill shelter, I didn't know her story. I only knew that she was such a sweetheart when we visited her at CAAWS, and we needed to take her home with us. Lily is very active, and still has seperation anxiety when she can't keep her eyes on me. Who can blame her after what happened to her? She is on monthly treatments and our vet says in 14 months the monthly treatments should kill all the heartworms in her system. Both her vet and I prefer that to the arsenic treatment because I don't think Lily (or I) would make it through the treatments! So, we're half-way there! Thank you, Dr. Ashley! We love you lots! And, even though the bio says she can't be around kids, she's been around both of my very young nieces and they love her to pieces. We're so happy to have her in our family - she's just one beautiful snuggle bunny!
