Arrival Story:
A Friend of mine dog had pups. They were Chihuahua so I asked to see them as my Chihuahua's are getting old. I picked her out and then waited for time for her to come home. She is sooo little. I did not have a name picked out for her so I just left it. One day Hubby went to pick her up and says I don't care what your name is You are Precious to me so there you have her name. She is a little tiny bullet and she is afraid of nothing. She does not care if it is bigger then she is, after it she will go.

I though I would up date on Precious. What a joy she is, she has learned many new things and she is only three months old. She now does what we call cat troll. It is so cute. Today she has learned to dance, she loves tater chips, I sometimes give them not allot Cheetos's as treats. She will jump up dance and bark for one. The picture of Precious with the black dog is her Mom Coco. The people who had Coco were moving to another State so they asked me if I would take her. I told her yes. Coco is a very lovable girl and she wants to please all the time. Precious has taught her how to bark when they want a treat. It is really cute to see the both of them sitting there asking ever so nicely for a treat. Jan 1 2008 to March 7 2012 I am getting word that this is not a new thing. I have been taking care of and up until 2006 when I had to stop doing foster care and rescue, and have never heard of this or never dealt with this. I was shocked when I finally was given a name and finally got to read about it. there is a 70% mortality rate. I do know I would have done things different if I had of known and I sure would not have let Precious suffer the way she did. My Mom keeps telling me she did not think she suffered as I had given her a pain med. Maybe so but to get as far as she did her little body must of been in so much pain as she did not have full liver function, and she had blood in her urine. I was never told she might not pull out of this, but was told it would take a long time for her to recover. I am sure vets want to try and they did to save these guys but I do not think they are able to save them. I have all of Precious meds here and will take it back to her vet for him to give to someone who can use it that cannot afford the medication. I do not see throwing it away as meds cost no matter where you get them. I am still crying each day and some mornings wake up looking for her. Precious was fearless she was afraid of nothing. My sister had a Border Collie cross and he would go after her trying to play with her and the hair on her back would go straight up and she would go after him, he of course took off running so who ever got in her path would take the burnt end of her mad and look at her so funny. She often found a great delight in tattling on the others if they got into something they were not suppose to. She would bark and bark till one of us got up and then would lay down after we got there. House breaking her was a chore as I could get her to pee out side but not poop and do not ask me why. She just refused so we kept things down for her to potty on. When it rain or if there was snow on the ground she would take off running to the back door and as soon as she looked out side came to a sliding halt and would go back and lay down, she just was not going to go out there. Not even for a treat which I often bribed her with. I have been sick since Precious came to live here when she was 6 weeks old. She would often times when I was in allot of pain lay on the couch with me and start licking me all over as if she was trying to take the hurt away. She would spend time with me when I was hurting so bad that all I could do is cry. She would always cuddle up to me and wash away my tears. If I had a good day and went through the house singing she would sit on the arm of the couch and sing with me. It was as if she knew this was a happy day. When she got sick all that left her she would just look at me and in all her struggle would try to lift her head to give me a kisses. My heart broke so bad to see the life she once had leave her. But I was hopeful as my vet was hopeful and never once told me we had to let her go, I just knew it was going to take a long time. She is very much missed by all of us, and her Mom Coco spent two day at my door crying a barking. I finally brought her in and laid her on my bed where I had a blanket I laid Precious on. She rubbed her head all over it, I guess she was saying good by in her own way. All I could do was sit there and cry it broke my heart. Vi and The Country Bumpkins.
