A new place, again.

I don't know what is happening to me. This day has brought another change in my life. I was in an outdoor kennel with a lot of other dogs. It was hot and the mosquitoes hurt me when they bit. I was scared at night and in the day I just wanted to get cool. Then I was brought her. The lady is very nice to me. She speaks softly to me. She gave me a bath that I so needed. She cleaned my dirty ears. It felt so good. I smelled good and felt good when she was finished. She dried me with a big, fluffy, soft, pink towel. I felt like a Princess. Next she brought me to the vet. He gave me a vaccination and tested me for worms and heart worms. I am fine and healthy but over weight he said. Then we came back here. The lady took me for a walk and she said I should call her Mom for now. She told me about Missy and Bradley and how she and "Dad" help little dogs find good loving homes. I like that and I am thinking maybe they can help me too. Life has not been good for me. She said she thinks I am very pretty and very sweet. She said she will be good to me and love me and take care of my needs. It's cool inside and my crate is big and my bed is soft and clean. The food is good and the water cool and fresh. I think this will be a good place for me and I will try not to be so scared. Maybe tomorrow I will play with the other dogs.

 

PetSmart tomorrow

I am feeling more comfortable here in my new home. I come out of my crate and sleep on the big pillow bed and sometimes I go to the livingroom to see what is going on. I try to be friendly but I'm so scared. My foster Dad has been so nice and gentle with me. I let him pet me and I want to go to him when he asks me to but I am still too scared yet. I go kind of close then turn back. I do go to Mom. She puts me up onm the chair with her when she is on her computer and I like that very much. I feel safe and comfortable with her. I watch Heidi and Jasmine play. They are such silly pups. They don't know what life has been like for me. I have not had a easy life. I miss my Mom and I don't think I will ever see her again. Mom said I have to go to PetSmart with her and Doogie and Dad tomorrow. She said there may be a kind, good person who would want to take me home and love me for the rest of my life. That would mean I have to get used to yet another home and new people. If it would be the last time, I would be OK with that.

 

I have a home.

Rose continued to be more comfortable here each day. She didn't like having to share her time with us between the other dogs in the evenings, but she had no choice. She is such a sweet dog she just took her place.
Took her to PetSmart today for the 3rd time. It was a special day. Blossom was there too! Rose and her mother seemed happy to see each other but not overly happy. I think they have become used to being apart. A lady who is 70 fell in love with her personality. She had a dog much like Rose who passed away some time back. She missed having a dog and she took Ros for a trial week. She has fenced in yard and a doggie door too. She lives alone so Rose will have her complete attention. She will be alone with her all day. :) This is what I wanted for Rose. Thank you God for sending this person to get Rose. I will miss her but she deserves a quiet, one person, no other dogs home.

NOTE; I spoke with Rose's adopter tonight. Said she hid under the dinning room table from the time she got home. She had to carry her out to potty and she had an accident in the house. She was not upset with Rose about it. She has gone in the room and talked to her every few minutes and just had wagged her tail and come out a little way from under the table. Poor Rose. She will be OK if the lady does not give up on her. She was scared of us too at first.

 

Rose is home again.

I got the call night before last from the lady who had Rose on a home trial. It was not working out because she was just too scared and hid most of the time. The lady said she was so scared that she had to pick her up to take her out and that was just too much for an elderly person. I agree and so yesterday morning I picked Rose up. She was so happy to see me that I thought her tail would fall off from wagging. Her mouth was open and I saw her smile at me! It broke my heart to see how happy she was and I think it will be too hard for me to ever give her over to someone else again UNLESS there is a major change in her. When we got home she looked all around her with total curiousity as I carried her inside. I put her down and I have never before seen her like she was at that moment. She took off and ran from room to room checking every corner and crate in the dog room. She was needing to see that her home is all here as she had left it I guess. She was so excited she jumped on Fred's recliner and smelled it from top to bottom. Then she ran and jumped on the sofa and ran from one end of the curve to the other and down on the floor again. She check the kitchen for the water bowl and food bowl. She checked the bedrooms and bathrooms. I let Bella and Buddy inside and they greeted each other smelling end to end and tails wagging furiously, ears straight up. It broke my heart to see how happy she was to be home. I spent much of yesterday holding her and just giving her lots of love and attention. She is home. Rose is home and very happy. Welcome home sweet little Rosy. :)

 

Ahhhhh!

It feels so good to be back "home". I missed my family so much. I have felt so good since I got back. I feel friendly and happy. Mom and Dad keep laughing at me cause I wag my tail all the time now. I heard Mom and Dad talking about me and they said they love me and think I will just end up staying here with them forever. hehehe That's good! I feel so safe here. I love Mom and Dad very much and I am letting them know it now. I should have let them know before.

 

Life is good.

Mom spoils me and Dad calls me Princess. :) I am happy. The other dogs are all nice to me except Daisy who Mom keeps away from all of us. She's not a nice girl. I think a human was not nice to her or another dog maybe. So she thinks she has to be mean to everyone. Poor Daisy. I'd like to help her but I am very frightened of her so I stay away.
Today Mom had a fund raiser for ARF. They are working to get money to have some of the orphans heartworm treated so they can be healthy and live. Well my former foster Mom was there and Dad brought me over to visit her. She held me and hugged me and she cried. She told me she loves me and she is so glad I am happy now. Mom told me I was not nice cause I didn't kiss her or make a fuss over her. She said I should have shown her thanks for helping me before. I didn't mean to be unkind I just wanted her to see I am very happy now. I love my foster parents and foster brother and sisters. My home is a good one and I am loved and I don't want to ever leave it. Mom said she told her I was just being shy.....

 

I try

Mom is teaching me to use the pet door.I'm scared to go in and out alone so I wait for her to hold the door for me. I think I will give it a try soon but I'm not quite ready to go it alone yet.
It was cool today. Soon it will be cold and wet weather. Heidi doesn't know about winter. She never had to spend the night outside on a cold night like I have. I won't have to do that again. I will have a cozy warm bed every night from now on. It feels good to know that.
Daisy is gone. Mom said she is in her furever home with her owner. I'm happy for her even though she was not very nice to me and the others. I want her to be happy and safe.
Mom wanted me to sleep in the people bed with her and Dad last night. I didn't want to so I slept on the big doggie pillow bed. I like that bed a lot. It smells like cedar and is comfortable. Maybe one night when it's cold I will spend the night with her in the people bed. I'll think about it.

I still am a bit too scared of the pet door to use it all alone. Mom holds it open for me still. I had an accident by the door during the night. I went to the door but Mom and Dad were sleeping and I just couldn't hold it any longer. Mom didn't fuss at me. She said she understands I was trying to go out. I was embarrassed.
I like the cool weather. It feels so good to lay in the sun when it's cool out.
Pepper is gone! Mom said she is on a home trial. I did that and it was so scary for me. I hope she likes it more than I did. I wanted to come home. Maybe Pepper wants to come home now. I hope she likes it where she is. I kind of miss her but I want her to be happy too. Maybe she will come back home like I did. Maybe she wants to come home and be with us. Maybe she is happy in her new place.
Mom said Miss Stephanie took my and Heidi's pictures out of the adoptable book. That she said means we are not for adoption. Mom asked me if that was OK with me? I wagged my tail and gave her a kiss. Heidi never understood what being adopted means so she didn't understand what a realy big thing this is. Thank you Missy and Bradley for helping me find a home I love.

 

I can do it!

I started to use the pet door and I am doing pretty well with that now. I am still scared of one of the others maybe making the door hit me in my face. I do use it though. Mom and Dad are so darn proud of me. I got hugs and kisses when I did it and still do. I feel like this is my real home. I have my favorite place to sleep and I am very good for them. I am not one bit of trouble. I wonder if I will be able to have a family like this one one day? Maybe I'll just saty here. :) As long as I am quiet and stay out of everyone's way they may just forget I'm here. hehehe

 

Bye-Bye Pepper

Mom and Dad took Pepper to PetSmart adoption day again. This time Pepper didn't come home with them. Mom said she got picked by some nice people with 2 kids. Mom said she is on a home trial for a week. If she stays the week then she will call that place home forever. Her Furever Home. They don't take me to adoption day anymore. I don't know for sure why. I know Mom said it makes me too scared to be there and she understands that I know what is going on and I am very unhappy to think of going to another new place. Besides I like it here just fine. I get along great with Bella. We play when I feel like it. Buddy is OK. He sleeps a lot. Heidi is kind of a pain. She always wants to play. I know she is still a puppy so I just walk around her and let her be silly. She's kind of cute and she has a bad leg so I feel sorry for her. Yep! I'm glad they don't take me to adoption day anymore. I'm happy for Pepper. Good for you Pepper. I hope you will be very happy with your family.
