|Well, even if I have to use Chucky's name to post, I still want to tell my story.
I am Chip or Chipper Doodle when Mommy has time to say my whole name. When I came here 9 years ago, I was so thin my ribs showed. Of course, I was also heartworm positive and had to endure the older treatments since they wer less expensive... It was 2 years before my heartworm tests finally came out completely negative!!
Then there was my tail... It was broken or something in my former life cause I don't have any feeling in it to this day. I can't hold it up or anything, but when I wag my whole back end, it will wag too.
I have lived with a big family ever since I've been here and I have liked all the brothers and sisters I've had over the years. My best friend of all time was Charlie. We were partners when we went visiting to the nursing homes.
When he died one day, I tried my best to grieve myself to death so I could be with him. Mommy finally found a "miniature" Charlie for me who became Chandler once he came here. I had found a new friend and had a new reason to live. I had to train him in the ways of this new place and we played and played and played.
I'm 13 and a half now and the current old man of the Green Acre. I get special treatment here now. I get my food first since I eat so slowly now. That way, Chucky can't take my bowl away from me and eat my food if I can almost finish before he starts. Sometimes, I get Vienna sausages after my food.
