my dog Buddy, sure does love his little toys:
He's cute NOW, but wow, you shoulda seen him when i first met him. Total gangsta, bag of bones,
too weak to walk, stunk
, covered in urine burns and feces, with SKANKY matted fur that felt like straw, and the vet said he was so so malnourished, it was actually life-threatening. He was taken from a puppy mill that made nat'l news when it was discovered, and Buddy spent first year or more of his life, in a cage, 24/7, as a stud dog in a puppy mill,
not even let out to pee or poop. We thought he was a 'tri-color" border collie for weeks...but, it was just urine stains from living in a cage 24/7.
Buddy had a bad attitude, too,
and didn't think much of our species when we first brought him home. Spent the first weeks just glaring at us, and growling if we startled him or tried to touch him. If we carried a broom or anything stick shaped, he RAN as best as he could run, and hid!!!
I just kept raining bits of chicken and telling him, "Wasn't me, Buddy, wasn't me..." My eyes watered a lot those first months.
Buddy has since changed his mind, and loves
everyone now. Lovely, lovable, loving dog, just a perfect lil gentlemen, he even does some therapy work in a nursing home.
No mystery why no one wanted HIM!!
No wonder his time was up and he was in the death row box...He was one hot mess!!!
now, he is a much loved healthy, strong beautiful dog, with a busy life and a family who thinks he is a piece of sunshine running through our world. He is perfect lil gentleman now, very eager to please, tons of QUIRKS, and very funny dog!
Let's see your pets!!
