Arrival Story: My husband and I had just adopted a dog from the shelter and had to rushe her (Austin) to the emergency hospital for an allergic reaction. As you can imagine, she was quite swollen when the doctor took her from us and rushed in the back area. We were taken into a waiting room and minutes later an assistant came in the room with, what I thought was Austin, looking so much better and all the swelling had gone. I said "Austinator, you look so much better". My husband quickly informed me that the dog was a boy not our girl Austin. They looked so much alike with one exception. We were told that the dog had been thrown out on the side of the road and left for dead. I could not even imagine this because he was sooo little. Anyway, after a short time begging and waiting for Austin to be treated, we had a new family member:)
Bio: Braun is the only dog in our house who loves to watch tv. He only reacts when he sees animals. I have video as well as pictures of him doing this b/c most people do not believe he only reacts to the animals. I will soon upload the picture of him watching "The Dog Whisperer". It is soo funny.
There is just something about that cold weather that makes me feel pawesome! Mommy and Daddy find it hilarious that they can’t get me to come inside when it is time to go to bed or even eat. They come looking for me in our back yard (which is huge) and typically find me just lying around watching the World through our fence.
I didn’t used to do this but, ever since I had some toes cut off from cancer I have had a new outlook on life. I really enjoy the yard time…far more than I did before. I have even gotten better on my leash walks with mommy. I used to make her a little crazy because I would get nutty if I saw a little dog, squirrel or cat. Now, I just walk alongside her, enjoying what we have.
My mommy has been down in the dumps over a lot of stuff happening in her life. We as the furcrew are doing all we can to keep her happy and in good spirits. It is easy when she is home but, when she has to go out into the world it is hard because we can't love on her and cuddle with her to let her know how much she means to us. I have got to think of a way to make her happy while she is out of the house. Maybe I can record a personal message from all of us to her cell phone...crap, I don't have thumbs! BOL! Pray for my mommy to find her Happy Place again.
