Just when I was used to being home something amazing happened. A nice family came to Petsmart and talked and talked to mom and dad. A few days later they took me to the family's house. The back yard is the most awesome place. I ran and ran till my tongue was hanging out. It was so fun. Mom and dad stayed for a while and I went all over the big house with the 2 boys and checked it out. Then we went outside and when I went in mom and dad were gone They had kissed me and told me they love me before i went out but I didn't understand they were going. I felt sad that first night. I didn't eat dinner and I kept smelling the chairs where they sat. I went to bed in my new parents room and I was very good. The next morning the boys got up and we played and had breakfast and i had a great day. I feel comfortable now. I guess thie is my home now. That's fine cause I like my 2 boys a lot. I am being very good.

 

I'm home again.

Can you believe I was returned to my foster parents? Well let me tell you what happened. See my new people have a prissy little Dachshund at their house. She didn't like me and guess what? I didn't like her. My new parents kept trying to get us to be friends but it just didn't work. Now the best thing would have been to send Miss Priss away but oh noooooo. They brought me back here instead. Can you magine that? Well the joke's on Miss Prissy Dachshund cause I like it here. My foster parents think I am a beauty and my foster brothers and sisters are just perfect. WeLLLLL not perfect maybe but they are Ok. Mom says I should not be sad because they will find me another home. One where I am the only Princess. Sounds good to me. For now I'll just get hugs and cuddles from my foster parents and I'll be happy.

 

Diary Pick of the Day!

Wow, what and honor! Almost as much of an honor as it was to be Dixie's mom for a while. She is such a special little dog. I think I say that about them all. But it's true. The satisfaction I get from working with a rescue and from finding good homes for the fosters I have is just not something I can put in words. Foster homes are so few and far between. Wonderful loving dogs are put to death because there are not enough foster homes to help them. Of course it's hard to take a dog in great need and help it reach it's healthiest and then let it go. It hurts to say good bye to them. But at the same time you make a family happy and give the dog a good life. Then you go and get another one ASAP. Don't dwell on the happy one. Focus on the ones who need your help.

 

I love my new home.

I love my new home. I love my Mommy and Daddy. I love my new brothers and sisters too. They ALL love me back. I have a nice clean crate for sleeping at night. I am free in my new house during the day. Mommy says as soon as she is sure I will be safe at night then I can sleep with her and Daddy in the big people bed. Some of the other dogs sleep in their bed but it's a real big bed so Mommy says I can fit just fine. Oh yes, this is a wonderful loving home and I am so lucky to be here. My Foster Parents were so right when they said my perfect home would come. It did!

From Mom:
We miss you very much Dixie. I can almost see you coming down the hall or feel your little paws on my leg at the computer asking to get up in the chair with me. I felt such a sad feeling when I made up the food bowls and had to put your bowl away. It was hard for me to do. I know you will be loved and safe all your life. Your parents are wonderful people and will make sure you have everything you want and need. My tears are tears of sadness because I miss you. Some of the tears are tears of joy because I know you have the home you and every dog deserves. We have 8 dogs left here and I am concentration on getting them each a good home. One as good as the one you have now. It was so special to me to get to be your Mom for a while. To rescue you from your sad life was a joy for me. I'll never forget you sweet Dixie.

My foster Mom kept telling me that one day my special people would find me and take me to my real home. The home where I would be loved and cared for. The home where I will never be treated cruel or go without food and shelter. I just listened and waited. I've been happy here and I would not have minded living out my life here.

Today I started my new life. Well it was really tonight about 8:30 PM. 2 very nice people came by to drop off a donation to the rescue group at our house. It was love at first sight! I loved them and they loved me. They couldn't stop touching me and I just couldn't stop kissing them. We were all so happy and then my Foster Mom kissed me and said I love you Dixie. Have a good life sweetie. We left and it was kind of sad but I am so excited too. My Foster parents were smiling and so I knew it was OK for me to be happy and I am. My "real" Mom and Dad are so nice. I know I will be happy for the rest of my life with them. Mom said they adopted Zoie from my Foster parents too. That means I have Zoie for a sister. Oh yes, I will have a good life. Thanks Mommy and Daddy for helping me and I will never forget you and the helping hand you gave me.

Life just gets better and better for me each day. My Daddy loves me and holds me a lot. We watch TV together and we play games on the computer together. I help him pay bills too. I am his helper girl. I help Mom too. I get all the crumbs off the floor for her. hehehe I'm very sweet. She loves me. Gives me those human kisses all the time. She lets me lay in the chair behind her back. I like her a lot but I LOVE my Daddy. He says I'm his pretty baby! hehehe Oh yes, it gets better and better each day.

It sure is fun here. Heidi is my good friend. She is so fun. We play and play and play.hehehe I dropped my vitamin this morning and Heidi ate it! Mom had to give me another one. I like those vitamin thingies. They tast good. I like the food here a lot! I can go outside any time I feel like it. I am trying to understand what Mom wants from me. She picks me up every time I squat to peepee. She takes me outside and puts me down! I'm thinking maybe she wants me to go potty outside? I'm not sure yet. I noticed all my friends go potty outside. I gotta think about this a while longer. In the mean time I am very happy. I get lots of belly rubs and I get held when ever I feel like it. Hummmmm Maybe I will just stay here.

I have a new home. The Mommy here says I am only going to be here for a few weeks and then she and the Daddy are going to help me find a furever home. I am confused. I was lost and a person found me. The next day they gave me to the rescue. Then I came here. I have lots to eat and water to drink. I was very hungry on the street. I ate anything I could get. Now I have all I need. I have lots of love too. Mom is looking for my original people but she is not having any luck. She says after she has done all the things needed and my people don't come, she will Fix me. She said I need vaccinations and I have to be spayed. She says she bets money I have heart worms too. I love the Daddy here. He holds me and I just love him. The Mommy holds me too but not as much. Time for bed. I have a soft clean bed now and it feels so nice. I'm happy here.
