Mickey's new life.

Mickey has a new home and a new life. He is so loved by his new family. He loves his Mama and she has him with her all the time. He is like a little angel on her shoulder. He loves his family and I doubt he even thinks of us anymore. I wish that to be true. I would like him never to remember the life that led him to his new family. His stay in the pound with it's smells and loud noises. The stress of coming to another home after being abandoned by his first owner. I hope he has forgotten me or that he thinks of us only as the bridge that carried him to true happiness. He is so spoiled now that his probably does not have time to think of anything but all the love he has now and the family who will never give him up. :) You go Mickey. :)

 

Mickey is home now.

In the last 15 months I have care for and adopted out 17 dogs. None have been like the adoption of Mickey. I spoke with a young woman on the phone about him and she said she would be here Sun. to get him. Not just to see him, but to get him. She knew she wanted him when she saw his picture on the internet. She called this AM to let me know she was going to be here but a little later then planned. I waited as we did adoptions for Mike and Pepper and when she came in, Mickey perked up like he knew her. She put out her hands and I gave him to her. They were like they belonged together. I asked her if she knew him? She smiled and said no. I think they knew each other but just had not met. :) He snuggled his tiny head under her chin and she filled out the adoption papers. It was just the strangest experience I have had doing rescue. I had to breath deep to keep from crying. He still looked at me but with a look that said "Thank you for helping me. Thank you for everything but my REAL Mom is here to get me, it's time for me to go. Good Bye Mickey. It was my pleasure to help you. Have a wonderful life. I'll keep you in my heart forever.

 

Poor Mom

Mom is all sad. She had my profile put on the adoption site and someone called for me. The lady is coming to meet me tomorrow for adoption day at Petsamrt. Mom talked to the lady and she has 2 little girls. She has an older dog too. Mom said she sounds like a sweet lady but she will have lots of questions to ask before I can go on a home triel with her. Mom forgets that I have Angels looking out for me. I mean Gosh! I was at the pound of all places. I didn't get sick from any of the other dogs there and I didn't get run over by a car before the animal control saw me and picked me up. So many things could have happened to me before she found and rescued me. My Pup Angels Missy & Bradley are taking care of me. I think she is just sad cause she will miss me when I am gone. I know Dad will really miss me. He loves me very much. I'll miss them too I know, but I need my own home with my own people that I don't have to share with 7 other dogs. Poor mom. I'm going to give her extra kisses and make her feel better. Ya, That's what I'll do, more kisses.

 

I'm first

Well I found out that Dad bought the car seat for Heidi. That's OK cause I got to ride in it first. hehehe Dad was sick with a bad cold so we didn't go to PetSmart Sun. That's fine with me. I like it here. Mom takes me out to play and she lets me have a play period with Heidi or Mike every day. That's fun. Mom says I have gained weight. She said she can tell when she picks me up. She said I look great and will be a wonderful friend to someone who will be good to me. I wonder when that will be?

 

I have a car seat!

My Dad bought me a car seat! I am so special. Dad put my haulter on me and my red collar too. He said I need them on cause if he puts a leash on me he has to be careful about me pulling him down. hehehe Dad, I only weigh 4 pounds! Your so funny. But it makes me feel like a big dog when Dad talks to me like that. I had so much fun in my seat. I can see evvvvvery thing. I'm glad I didn't get adopted yesterday. I like it here and the longer I stay the harder it will be for them to give me up. hehehe

MOM AND DAD TOOK ME TO PETSMART TODAY FOR ADOPTION DAY. I WAS SCARED. THE VOLUNTEERS HELD ME AND THAT HELPED A LOT. LOTS OF PEOPLE CAME AND 4 DOGS GOT ADOPTED. RUSTY WENT ON A HOME TRIAL SO HE WILL GET A HOME IF HE IS A GOOD BOY. NOBODY PICKED ME. :( NOBODY WAS WISE ENOUGH TO SEE WHAT A TREASURE I AM. THAT'S WHAT MY MOM SAID ANYWAY. MOM SAID SHE IS HAPPY I WAS NOT ADOPTED CAUSE SHE LOVES ME AND SHE WANTED TO KEEP ME A WHILE LONGER. I LIKE THAT IDEA TOO SO I AM HAPPY.

 

I barked today.

I had a good day. Mom took me out to play in my little pen. It was kind of cool so we didn't stay out long. Dad walked around the house holding me and held me while he was at his computer. I also got to talk to Bella and Buddy. They are very curious about me. They never had a friend so small before me. hehehe
Mom and Dad are so funny. I needed to poop so I called them to come take me outside. They laughed and laughed because they never heard me bark before. Thay are silly. I'm a big boy. I know how to get their attention.

Mom was very upset yesterday. She held me on her lap and said she had some bad news. She was very sad. She said the lady who was so excited to adopt me has changed her mind. The lady went and bought a puppy. Mom said she feels so sorry for me but ya know what? It's OK Mom. I'm real happy here. I like Mom's kisses and Dad just thinks I am the best dog he's seen in a long time. He likes to hold me when he watches TV and I like it too. It's really OK if I stay here furever. hehehe I need to get well anyway. My surgery was just a few days ago. Iy's pretty fun here. There are lots of dogs here and some come and go pretty quick. Pumpkin was only here 2 days then she went back to her foster home. She was bigger than me. They are all bigger than me. Mom says I am a big boy in a tiny body. hehehe

 

Oh MY!

Today was not a good day. Mom took me and Rusty for a ride in the car. I like to go in the car but this trip did not end well. She took us to the vet and he operated on both of us. He removed our............our ................ well our private body parts. Mom told me tonight that he did that so I won't make babies. She said if I have babies they may end up at the pound like I did. That would be sad. I would not want any of my babies to go there. I guess it's a good thing but it sure was no fun.

 

I'm excited

My Foster Mom talked to me this morning. She said I am going to meet my "maybe" forever Mom. on Sunday morning. I can hardly wait. Mom says she is very nice and she would be good to me. She will feed me good food and take care of me. I just have to sit tall.........I'm not very tall though. Mom said I have to be a good boy. She laughed and said not to worry cause that comes naturaly to me. Of course I will be very nice. I will be a little scared I know. Mom said she would like to do the dreaded BATH for me on Friday. Oh NO. I hate baths. Maybe if I cry she will skip the bath. Maybe I could sneeze or something. I know fighting her didn't help last time. She made me do it anyway. Rrrrrrrr I hate baths. Doge belong on land and fish belong in water. Hummmm we will see who wins. I am doing fine. I do the play bow to Mom when she takes me out to potty. She laughs at me and plays with me. I want a friend to play with........ a dog friend. Maybe my new sister will like to play.
