New Family Member - Four-footed Variety
« on: April 22, 2011, 02:50:54 PM »
Well, when I went to pick up my little, 15 year-old, Chihuahua...Me, Too's ashes, my vet, who knew we wanted another pet... asked if I had checked the Northwest Organization for Animal Help, N.O.A.H., because the local shelters all send dogs there. (They don't euthanize.) I stopped on my way home and I found a marvelous Basenji-terrier mix, Rosa. She's 18 months old and very sweet tempered...a "must" because I take my dog to our nursing facility every day to visit Val and the other residents. She was surrendered on the day Me, Too died because her owner was unwell and couldn't care for her any longer. The first shelter spayed her and gave her the required shots and tests and sent her on to N.O.A.H.

We are enrolled in an obedience class which seems silly to me since I have always obeyed my dogs without question. LOL!

Awe, I'm so happy for you, Luise, & Rosie, too.  She's one lucky little puppy to have you as her mom!   ;)

Luise this is such a lovely ending...no not an ending hang on...  new beginning for you .   We just know our new little dog loves us by the way he looks at us, talks and loves a scratch.      We know he is eternally grateful we chose him from the pound and he now has a contented life.     I was so sure I could never love another little dog after ours was killed, another dog will never replace him but  this "new one (it;s 4 years now, is a great companian, I take him to our other little dogs grave and tell him about the one we lost.

Luise, she is beautiful!  For those of us that love animals, pets add so much to our lives.  I'm so glad you made the decision to get another dog quickly...you will have many happy years together!

I'm glad you and Val have a new buddy. She looks very bright and chipper...just like you, Luise. Congratulations!

Those eyes! That nose!  You're so lucky you get to plant kisses on that little snout!
