Three years ago yesterday I was put on this little plane. I was in Louisiana at the time. My rescue in Texas had taken me to another rescue in LA so I could be "transported" to my new home. I had no idea what was going on, I was excited but scared. Then it happened, I was put into a crate with a pillow. They said it was my crate. What?? MY OWN CRATE? Then I was taken to this airfield and loaded up on this plane. There were other dogs with me in the plane, they were small dogs. There was a catahoula puppy with us also. Well we took off then a long time later we landed. But where was my new "mom"? Apparently the rescue never called her to tell her my flight was early. Well after a while this SUV pulled up. I was in a mini-van with all of these barking little dogs and I looked out the back window. WAIT, I KNOW HER!! Sure enough it was my foster mom from Texas!! I was wagging my tail, I KNOW HER, I KNOW HER!!! Well in my crate was the catahoula puppy and she peed on my pillow! Hmpf!! Well I was thrilled to see my foster mom, well now my MOM!!! She had a friend, Aunt Jackie, with her. We stayed with the Catahoula pup and waited for her foster dad to show up. Meanwhile we walked around, sat in the grass and mom told me welcome to your forever life Darcy! Yippeeee!!
Three years later and I've got an amazing life! I miss Turner terribly, he was a huge loss to the house. But I've got Grunt who I love and want to strangle sometimes. But overall my life is wonderful. Mom takes me everywhere with her and Grunt. I love going to the lakes and creeks. I love just going for a ride and being with mom. Mom has taken the time to work me through alot of my fears. I still have some, BUT! I wake up in the morning and do the slide with my tail thumping along the side of the bed! I love, love, LOVE my morning scritches and rubdown first thing in the morning. I go for walks every day. Yes everyday! If the weather is bad we go, if mom isn't home dad takes us! I love it!! I love going for rides. I've even been coming out of my crate to check it out first hand lately!
Life is pretty darn good. I am one lucky girl! Mom sent pictures of me back to the rescue I came from telling them thank you for letting mom have me and helping get me to LA for my transport. BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!

Mum rescued you... but you know... YOU rescued her too !
I think you made my mommie tear up. She said no but I know she's a sucker for a happy ending. What an adventure you have had! I am so glad that you finally made it to your forever home. Aren't forever homes awesome? Your mom loves you and if you are patient with her, she will teach you a lot and you will eventually get over all of your fears because you know what...You are safe now at home and there's nothing to fear about that! Good mom's and dad's protect us and we are very lucky to have the good ones! Have fun on your special vacation with Grunt!!
hugs and kisses,
