Arrival Story: I've been wanting a dog for 4 1/2 years after my shihtzu had died. We've gotten a lot of opportunities to keep one but it never seemed to happen.
My mom's friend was walking over to a coffee shop and she saw 2 men giving away a little chihuahua/beagle mix. (They said that he was a mix with a beagle because of his colorings but it turns out he's only Chihuahua) The 2 men had found him wandering around the street and they almost ran him over! So they took care of him for 3 month and now they need to find him a new forever owner. My moms friend immediatly thought of us and called us before anyone took him. We agreed we would keep him for a week and then decide if he would fit into our lives. Before the end of the week, I had a fit because my mom told me I couldn't keep him, but eventually, after a long period of time he became mine.
Everyone was happy I was back. They didn't think I'd do it again. They blocked the hole I went through the other day, but somehow, I did it again.
They all went to their work, school, wherever. I didn't learn from the other day that I would end up in a cold stone cage next to loud barking pit bulls. Then Julie forgot to turn her phone off at school. The Humane society knew me and knew Julies number. Since I was a big problem the other day. The phone rang on vibrate and Julie asked if she could answer because it was important. She did and Marley was getting picked up again.
After School, Mommy and her friend came to pick me up again. This time she needed to pay double the amount yesterday. But when Marley came, he was wearing a green knit sweater that did not belong to us. And I'm now sitting on Mommys lap on a Sat. while she's typing for me.
MARLEY: It was not today, but 2 days ago and yesterday. Twice. Julie, my human sister, started school. And I sort of had this separation anxiety problem. No one was home! They used to take me EVERYWHERE! I panicked. I barked, whined, howled, anything! Then I did what a good dog would do. I went to go find them.
I found a little hole at the bottom of the fence. "They are gonna be so proud of me!", Was all I could think. Now I feel stupid. I entered the stray dog world. I was free! I ran around in my speedy mode a couple of times then went on finding them only with my teeny tiny, not so good nose. I went this way, then that way. nope couldn't smell. So I gave up and started running bizzare! Then I saw a doggie! Maybe She'll help me. I ran to them and the owner picked me up and called the Pasadena Humane Society.
JULIE: It was a normal day for me, but when I stepped into the car, my aunt told me to call my mom and be calm. My mom told me what had happened. I didn't know if I should cry or not but I just froze. Thinking what could happen.
My Mom and I went to the Humane Society. Then looked for a tiny sad face in the cage. It was the very last one. #149. When he spotted us, he went into his crazy happy time. Wiggle butt and all. With his ears folded back, he cried. Saying " Why did I end up in here? Take me out! It's cold!" We had to pay $20 for the CA law if hes not neutered, and $35 for the Arcadia law if he did not have a leash on.
We couldn't. My mom needed to go to the bank! But theres only a couple of her banks and none in Pasadena. So We came back the next day morning to pick him up.
Today started out at 6:30am. Usually starts at 7:30. Today will be our last full day at my house. My sister is going crazy, literally. I hate to see her like this, When shes sad, I get sad. She says shes worried if I would make good friends there. I'm not sure if there is nice dogs there, but I'm sure I'll get all the ladys. chicks dig me.
Today I went over to walk with Diesel. We didn't go on the normal trail. We went over to Lizzie's house. I went in and Ann Ke bought me a new harness and a sound vegetable! I love my new harness! It is bright neon red and is very soft! The "sound vegetable" as my sister and Rikki call it, is the bestest toy ever created! Once I had it in my mouth, I squeeked nonstop for about an hour or so. Then I fell asleep with the swirly bone Rikki got me. I love Rikki, She's pretty too. But I love her because of her kindness and loving, caring mind. hehe, I sound like a girl. My mom, sister and my aunt were packing all the supplies in the house. After we packed it was about 3:00. Me and Julie slept for about an hour and 1/2. We woke up and my mom remembered we were just in time for the good-bye pawty! We left in a hurry. When we got there Caspian, A tall Borzoi, was greeting us to come in. Then he ran and found a bone in the street. Me, Diesel, and Caspian were fighting over it. After all the fighting, me, Diesel, Casper(the dogs), Julie, Rikki, Debbie, and Robbie(our Mommies and daddys) went in their backyardand had a blast with all the eating , and the playing, singing, fighting, taking pictures, having a sheep tour, and cute memorable moments. It was so fun. I am going to miss Diesel and Caspian a lot.
