Arrival Story: Well, what was once a very sad story of my life has turned out to be a very HAPPY ending! or just a new beginning really! At 3 years old, I am so wise for my doggie years. My mommie finding me was the bestest thing ever...you see, I was born and raised in a puppy mill down in Norfh Carolina....I spent my entire life in a cage and my only reason for being there was to breed more puppies for those terrible people to send to pet stores. I many times felt I was so doomed to this horrible life. I had no name, just a number...the number 514. That was tatooed to the inside of my leg. I guess they didn't want me to forget. Then one day I realized there was a God, that nasty puppy mill decided they didn't want me anymore. Guess I wasn't given em enough puppies....Not long after that, they took me out of that horrible cage and handed me to a nice lady. She took me back to her house and said I was never going back to that horrible puppy mill again. She took me to the Dr. to have my health checked out and boy was I a mess. It wasn't long that they discovered I had a bunch of bad teeth and those had to come out. My toenails were real long and I wasn't feeling real good in general. A bit of blood work later, they found HEART WORMS! OMG! Now I thought for sure, it was all over for me. The nice lady took me home and after some more love and care, sent me to another nice lady who helped her take care of the doggies she rescued. She was going to help take care of me and help me try to get rid of those heart worms. My first three months of being out of that dang puppy mill was as bad if not worse than the puppy mill cause the treatments I had to have, to get rid of the heart worms didn't make me feel real good. They were horrible and I was so tired most of the time. My foster mommie kept encouraging me and telling me I was going to be okay and to hang in there, cause soon, I was going to be all better and will be able to find a "REAL HOME" and a "REAL MOMMIE". I didn't know what that meant, but it sounded like it would be good so I did just that, I hung in there.
Bio: Now for the bestest part! One day a couple weeks ago, my foster mommie told me I was going to have a very special day. Firstest, I had to go to the groomer to get all pretty and then after that, I was going to say good bye to my foster furblings and go for a ride to meet my NEW MOMMIE!! yippeee....I guess, I'd not had a new mommie before so I wasn't real sure what was going on, but it sounded exciting. My foster mommie told me that a real nice lady was driving from far away to come and take me to my new home. Before long that day, I was off to the hotel where my new family was and bygoshes and tail wags, I was gonna haf fursiblings too....playmates!!! wags and spins!!....My new mommie was so happy to see me and she took me in her arms right away. She was so nice. Shortly after she put me down on the bed, she too was sitting on the bed talking with my foster mommie. I liked her so much I just went and climbed up on her lap. She was kissing me and hugging me and I knew right away I liked this "new Mommie" idea a whole bunch. My fursiblings were trying so hard to play with me...but I don't know what play is...Mommie says its alot of fun and before long I'll be doing it all the time.
I've been working on relaxing when Mommie or someone picks me up. I am so stiff after standing in a cage all day, all my life.. I guess I've just been so afraid of humans up til recently. But, I'm trying hard and I have alot of love to give! and my Mommie has alot of love for me too..... I've been having so much fun in my new house. I get to sleep with mommie on the bed and within two nights I had it down pat...Mom puts me on the bed and I roll right over on my back wif all my legs in the air!!! "I'm relaxing now mommie!!!" I've had my first Fanksgiving, my first walk on the beach, my first fur bed, my first fur coat, my first pink sweater, my first for alot of things. I am so happy! Mommie calls me her little "bobble girl" cause I stand in one spot and rock and wag my wittle tail soooooo fast! Thats cause I now know what they meant by my OWN MOMMIE!
Mommie says I'm gonna get a baf soon...I look a wittle wagged in my pictures cause I had ear mites when Mommie got me and she's been putting all this medicine in my wittle ears. They hurt so bad, but they are better now. In fact I guess all of us are getting a baf soon, Mommie said something bout a guy named Santa Claus?????
My mommie has been planning on starting a diary fur all ob us here on Dogster, but she says dat dese days just seem to fwy by and she neber seems to get all da fings done dat she wants too. Me and my sissies always follow Mommie awound to gif her all da support we can. I guess we're all going to be goin to a new doggie club cause dat plwace dat Bella is going to Obedience twainin isn't "Twippin" Mommie's twigger. Da facility is horrible and to make matters worse, dey start new doggies in obedience wif dem aweful prong collars. Mommie finks dat is cwuel and senseless to do dat to a doggie who has neber had any twainin before. Dis new club is bery big and dey do most anyfing a doggie wants to do. Part of a new membership is to volunteer for 15 hours....Mommie's gonna be weal busy but she says we are all gonna haf wots of fun at da new club. Dat being said, Mommie read dis beautiful wetter from a sweet doggie in da club's newswetter and we wanted to share it all wif you. We fought it was a bery nice way to start one ob our diaries!!
We hope you enjoy dis..........
I RESCUED A HUMAN TODAY
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her
need instantly and knew I had to help her.
I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As she stopped at my kennel I blocked
her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been
walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to
look forward to and want to make a difference in someone’s life.
She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my
head up against the bars to comfort her.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek
and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would
promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I
could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.
I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the
corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.
