Arrival Story:
Percy came from Pug rescue. He was rescued from a pound in Mississippi and brought to Buffalo. Percy was heartworm positive and was blind. His eyes were so damaged they had to be removed and he is now pain free. He had a wonderful foster Mom to help him. Percy's guardian angel rescues pit bulls and gave him an honourary page on his site. Check it out: 003/fall/percy/percy.htm

I live with my sister Wednesday and my brothers Pugsley, Hank, Ringo, Wesley, Jed & Gertie too, and 2 cats Mo & Hans. I don't see but I get around very well. I use my nose and trust me I can smell food!! I am spoiled now and sleep on the big bed. Sometimes people say things about me but Mom says I'm an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 whatever that means. I guess it's good cause she gives me lots of hugs and kisses.

Forums Motto:
I don't need eyes, I see with my heart

In my eyes Percy wasn't "special needs" he was just special. From the first moment I saw a picture of his face something inside me knew he was meant to be mine. After what seemed like an eternity he finally arrived.

I knew it would be a learning experience for us both and it was. Percy taught me that being blind isn't a disability and he could live a normal life. Nothing made that clearer than when on his second day here he jumped up into the chair and ate my lunch when I wasn't looking. As long as he could still smell he would be alright.

I taught him that there are people out there that will be kind and love him for him. He learned to trust me and when he finally went down the stairs for the first time by himself I felt like a Mother watching her child take it's first steps.

Percy had a rough start to life being a puppymill stud. He was discarded, blind and heartworm positive. One thing he did manage to do was educate people about rescue and puppy mills. He would make his yearly trip to the Erie County Fair and I was surprised at how many people would come back the next year and remember Percy.

That shouldn't have been a surprise as that's how Percy was. He made an impression on anyone that met him. He was gentle with small children and elderly people and dispite being dentally challenged he could also put any foster in their place. He was one of a kind and will be sadly missed.

Miss you Bubba and love you with all my heart.

Percy crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge January 29, 2008. He is running and playing with hearing and vision with his many friends and finally united with his special girl.


Long time no bark

It's hot, hot, hot here. Not fit for man nor four legged critters. I'm good, got the nice cool spot where the cold air blows out of that thing on the wall. Funny how it blows cold when it's hot out and blows hot when it's cold out. I'll have to check that out!!

Foster sister Audra left, she's living with her Daddy and sister pug Minnie. I hear they even got matching harnesses. She left on a Sunday and on Monday Mommy gets a phone call, OH OH!! Seems that someone dropped off a pug brother at the Animal Shelter. Off she goes, crate in van and comes back with Nikko.

Nikko is 5 and he was brought to the shelter to be put down. His people said they were moving out of the country and tried to find him a home and couldn't. You see Nikko is blind and diabetic. Mommy has to give him pricks 2x a day. The nice Animal Shelter lady showed Mommy what to do and boy was she nervous. Mommy HATES needles but she makes us go get them. We think he may have been an only. He didn't even know it was okay to jump up on the couch, we told him it's okay that's what the blankets are on there for. He's getting better now that he knows he won't get in big trouble. Mommy says now if he'd just stop licking her legs everything would be great.

Mommy is working on getting his insulin regulated. Poor old guy, Mommy says he's way to young to have this disease.

Well I'm off to reclaim my spot. Stay cool!!!!!


Long time no write

It's been busy around here. New foster girl Audra arrived and she's got no eyes just like Jed & I. Momma says she's NOT staying. I had surgery, Momma found a lump in my neck and the fine needle aspiration showed it wasn't just fatty tissue. I'm sporting a nice big bald patch and stitches. Won't know what it is until the lab results come back.

Sad news too, sister Gertie went to the Rainbow Bridge today. She got pnemonia and was fighting it. She started to get better on her Baytril but yesterday started to hack again and today took a turn for the worse. Momma had a vet appointment for today but Gertie crashed real fast. The Dogtor is only 2 minutes away but Gert didn't make it. She passed in the car on the way. Sister Gertie was with us for 7 short months but Momma said that's the price you pay for seniors. She said even if she knew it would only be a short while she'd do it all over again.
