Sept. 11, 2007 was the day I cam here. They all told me I would be here only till I found a forever home. LOL This is my forever home. I have been here for 6 years!!! I love my mom and dad. I have learned to get along with everyone who comes here and I have learned that my parents are kind people and would never hurt me. Mom said I am no going to leave here till I go to the bridge. This is my home.....forever.

 

My Birthday!

Today is my birthday. I am 7 yrs old today. 7 years! I was about 2 yrs old when I was rescued from Death Row at the pound. Just 2 yrs old and my life came very close to ending there. I was due to be put in the gas chamber that day. Miss Terrie came to get another dog and left with 3 of us. My sister was one and she went on to be adopted and lives in another city. I went to live with Miss Terrie but she had to move and she was sick so she turned me over to the rescue. I lived at the kennels for a few weeks and was very unhappy there. The adoption coordinator asked my parents to foster me because I had soooo meny personality problems, fear issues. I have been here for FIVE and a half years now. This is my home....I am never going to leave unless me or my parents die. I am still scared of people. I react by biteing. I KNOW, that is not good but I can't help it. It just happens and I pee when new people try to touch me too. I try not to do it but it just happens. Well all that does not matter to my parents or to ARF-LA. They say they love me and will always take care of me. I am happy, loved, safe, well cared for and that is all that matters. I love my parents and they love me. Mom is boiling chicken for me as my special birthday treat. That's better than a cake! Oh Ya it is. :)

 

Another one has left.

Mom and Dad took Hershey and Katie to the adoption store today and Hershey didn't come back with them. Hummmm another one adopted and I am still here. I see them come and go and some are young and cute and some are not so yung and not so cute if you ask me. They all seem to get adopted sooner or later except for me. I went to the adoption store a few times and it was fun but nobody chose me to adopt. I don't think I will ever get adopted. It's a good thing I like it here. Good thing I love my Mom & Dad. :-)

Been a long time since I wrote in here. Nothing much has happened except friends going to their forever homes. They come and they get adopted but I'm still here with Heidi, Bella and Buddy. I guess my day will come. Mom says it will.

I got in a fight with Dixie a while back. I don't like her cause she runs up in front of me when Mom comes around. I want to be first. I want kisses from Mom and she tries to take my place. I don't like Dixie.

Mom and Dad took me to Petsmart a couple of times. It was not so bad. I even let people touch me. I even let a little kid touch me and I didn't growl at her. Mom was so proud of me. Dad said I'm a good girl.
I still don't have my own home. I don't know why.

 

I am happy.

Mom lets me sleep with her and dad now in the people bed. I love it. I am very good. I cuddle up to mom and stay real still. It feels so good. I love having my own special spot on the bed. hehehe

 

I Didn't Get Adopted

Mom and Day took me to Petsmart today for adoption day. Someone called and asked about me and Mom liked the man very much and he and his wife were just what Mom thought would be perfect for me. Mom gave me a bath, bought me a new pink collar and a pretty scarf with tiny pink roses on it. I did what they wanted me to do. I tried to be nice but I was so scared when people came close to me. Dad brought my crate in and I ran inside and hid from everyone. I only came out when I heard Mom's voice and peeked out to look for her. I even walked out once and went to her side. There were so many people and dogs there. I was scared. Lots of people looked at me and Mom and Dad talked to them about me. They kept telling the people that I am a good girl and sweet too. All the people smiled at me, some gave me pats on my head, but they adopted other dogs. All Mom and Dad's fellow rescue volunteers laughed and said "Rose has her home. It's your home too. She is your dog." I heard them talking about adopting me. I am just going to wait and see if they do it. It really doesn't matter cause I know they will not let me go away from them. They love me very much. Almost as much as I love them. They are my Mom and my Dad and this is my home.

 

7 of us now.

There are 7 of us now. Zee was such a bother to me that I don't miss him much. Maybe I'm just envious because he got a furever home and after over 2 yrs in foster care/rescue, I am still a foster girl. I often wonder if I will every have a family of my own.......... not here in this home. I wish I could stay here forever and Mom often says I probably will. She had someone ask about adopting me yesterday but she told them how very shy I am and that I need a quiet home. The people have 4 grandkids that come to stay and visit them. Oh My! I could not handle that. Mom said she was sorry and would help them find a dog suited to their life and home. Today she has been talking on the phone about the Doxies being adopted. I won't miss them either. They are snappy and boss me around. I feel sorry for them because they had a hard life but so did I and I'm not bossy. Well, I just stay to myself and don't make any trouble at all for Mom and Dad and I love them and I know they love me. That's enough for me.

 

Almost a year.

I have been here almost a year. A foster home for almost a year? I don't think it's supposed to be like this. Mom said I would be here for a few weeks and then go to my Furever Home. I don't know why nobody wants to adopt me. Mom says I am a wonderful girl. I never make trouble for her. She says I am almost invisable. She says someone will see how special I am and want me someday. Mom said I am going to have a party for my anniversary with hats and treats and fun games. Oh well...... Foster and Murray got adopted today and Katie too! Katie is shy but someone adopted her. Mom says if nobody adopts me she will keep me and take care of me and just keep on lovin me like she does now. That's not so bad. I love Mom and Dad. I like Buddy, Bella and Heidi too. They are here furever and we are like a family. My family! I have seen a lot of dogs come here and go on to their Furever Homes but I am still here. I hope they are all happy, I am. :)

 

Another friend is going away.

I heard mom say that Harry is going to his furever home tomorrow. Cagney left last week and the week before it was Carson who left. Seems like everyone is finding their own family except me. I am kind of sad about it. Mom says I am a sweet girl and my furever family will find me one day and I will leave her too. I don't know if that's every going to happen but I know I'm safe here. I know I am loved here and Mom and Dad show me they love me every day. I'm happy for Harry. He's a pup and pups need to be in their own home. The longer I am here the more I think this may be my furever home.

 

I am miserable

Mom has been talking to me about my weight. She says I have got to reduce. I am happy like I am. She is on this big kick. She says I have to loose weight because it's not healthy to be so fat. Rrrrrrrr She decided to take me walking. Now she knows I don't like to go for walks. She put that pink leash on me and we headed out. I walked past 2 houses. TWO! and that was enough for me. She kept walking and I layed down in the road and refused to move. She called and laughed and then she even fussed. I didn't move an inch. I made her pick me up and carry me home. hehehe I hate walks. The sun is too bright, I don't like birds and I'm tired. She said she is going to make me go again tomorrow. Oh Brother. This is not going to be fun. She said she is cutting back on my food too. Now that's not funny Mom.
