Hi – I’m Precious!!
No--- that’s my name!! But mommie says I am!
The found me in Ohio wandering around on Valentine’s Day. Cupid sure was with me that day. I was a complete mess!! All matted and ugly. My pictures are below. I was so matted that when I pee peed it went into the mats. I was in bad shape. But an Angel send me out on the cyber space to see if anyone would save an old beat up ugly matted baby like me. Believe it or not we got 3 holds on me. I guess they felt sorry for me or who knows what they wanted me for. But my mom was worried as she had the second one & God heard her prayers as the first one fell through. She was really happy as now she could get me if she wanted me. But Pa is not across the street. Pam called her to see if they could pull me in her name to be sure I was safe & there was a rescue that would take me.
Well my mommie said you sure can pull her but I want that baby & she’s coming here somehow. Margie (my other angel at Stark) & another worker said I had to get some of that hair off me as it was hurting me. So they did the best they could to cut most of it off. Now I sure wouldn’t pay them to do it but they didn’t do too bad a job. At least I felt better. That was the idea anyways.
So Pam took me to the vet & I got shots & a check up. My heart ain’t great & I am old. Have infection in my bladder kidneys or someplace and my teeth (what I have of them) are horrible. Problems with my back legs & my ribs are showing. I only weigh 7 lbs. I thought who would want me- I sure am no prize!!!! But my mom said Oh yes you are!! And your name will be Precious!! Wow!!!! I like Valentines Day!!
Then I went to Nancy’s at Angel Ridge Rescue to stay till we got a transport to my new home. I was there a week &. My poor mom was going nuts worrying & trying desperately to get a transport. Then Thurs Nancy called mom & said she is leaving tomorrow- we have a transport all set up & she will be there tomorrow late afternoon. My mom was ecstatic!!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!! I was going home!
Wonder what home is like! I hope I like it. But anything is better that what I had for 14 years. My mommie said last night – from all your antics & personality- if not a PM baby it was a back yard breeder as you were definitely a breeder dog kept outside and no care what so ever.
Friday morning came & Nancy took me to meet Janice & love her heart she drove 2 legs to get me to home & met Zara & they took me to mom. She was half afraid to pick me up I am sooo fragile. I guess she thought I was going to break.
When we got home- Mommie let me do my thing in the yard. Then she held me & let the rest of the family out. Took me in and got me a drink. Time to bring in the brood.
Joy Joy. Mommie held me in her arms & opened the door.
In they come & boy did they wanna see what she had!!!!!!!
So she got down to greet one & let them smell me (I was all wrapped in a blanket. And she talked to them and told them they had to be good to me & be very careful, as I was fragile (what’s that mean anyways- she keeps using it)!!. But she has two that she really must depend on as she explained they were in charge of watching out for me & checking on me & they are always sticking they noses at me & looking. They do the same with Winnie mom’s other PM baby. They sure do check on us a lot. Don’t hurt us or bother us but that nose is sure there a lot.
Well I stayed in my snuggly bed with my blanket all Friday night Mom put my food in there & stayed right there in that room with me. Then Sat morning Mom got up & put us all out & went out too. Brought me in & the next thing I heard was she was calling the vet. I was wheezing. So off on another car ride. I thought who is getting me now- I thought I was home!
OK so we’re at the vets. Mom had to take me out 3 times to go to the bathroom- I was nervous. The Dr is pretty nice. Gentle ol guy & he checked me all over good. Listened to my heart & lungs -. Made me walk for him & then said I could go home. Whew!!!!!!!!! What a relief. I thought maybe this was my home. But he said I have a BAD heart murmur & yes I am wheezing. Gave mom meds & told her to keep up the antibiotic. & then said & you can give her any of your concoctions you give every one else & laughed. (Wonder what he meant). I have a feeling I will find out.
Off we go guess she’s keeping me. Yippee. Now why are we stopping? OK so I had to try on a new coat to keep me warm. Now can I go home?????????
Home again. Back in my bed & I stayed most of the day but then decided to check out the house. Easy- all on one floor. Mommie sure picks me up & holds me a lot. She said she is kinda glad I don’t have front teeth. I bite when I get scared. She couldn't get my sweater off as I kept biting her. So she had the vet get it off today!
Well so far so good. It’s Monday & I am not wheezing as loud today so it may have been my heart. But we have to get settled in & calmed down & meds taken & then he said in a few weeks he may do my teeth. Mommie says we will take it one day at a time. And she does something called Reiki with me. Feels good.
Guess mommie will let you all know later how it’s going. But just wanted to Thank everybody who helped or offered to help to get me from a stray to my new home where I am already being spoiled rotten. I love you all.
“Precious” a special Cupid from Valentines Day.
