Freddy was named for the great dancer, Fred Astaire, as they share the same birthday, May 10. He was initially a "special needs" pup, as he had a scratch on his eyeball and the breeder was going to do away w/ the lil' guy; I said "NO! Give him to me!"Paid $50 and Freddy , to make a log story short, became my 7 year old Son's dog, "defeated" a "wicked Witch" neighbor who was trying to have him taken from us, ("ordinance monster!)' for 1 month I "hid" him at my mother's house (in another state), while we figured out how to get out from the "Wicked Witch's" jurisdiction. We DID move, were able to bring Freddy "HOME FOR GOOD" all in the space of a few months really, Freddy got together with "Amy" a wonderful 8 year old Shih Tzu, THEY had puppies... VERY unexopectedly, over dinnertime (!),"Suzie" and" Harry" , and after 24 RESCUED dogs,and 11 more years, Freddy IS "King" of the lot;and despite a heart murmer, is a very spry and spoiled 12! People are amazed that we go thru a great deal of effort for these guys, but they are FRIENDS, First & Foremost. NOBODY has a right to dictate what goes on inside your home, what car you have the right to own, even w/ a shared driveway, and w/ Freddy, well, leaving that Dutch Colonial house early cost us $25,000; but sometimes a Lifetime of Loyalty and Love, which is what Freddy has given to my son Bobby, to ALL of us, well, you CANNOT put a value on it. (My husband calls him the "$25K dog". I look at him today and his exact location is of intense concern to me. He has 3 "grandpups" to help fill the void when his children "Suzie and Harry" passed away 2 and 7 years ago.When he leaves, it will hit me hard, but EVERY DAY from the day we picked him up those years ago has been a VICTORY.(ANYTIME you can save one of these little people, your Life IS worth Living in every way!).And I will always remember him making things easier for a little boy whose father was confined to an electric wheelchair w/ 2 broken arms and a broken leg..My son is 19 now, and Freddy is still here.Those are the Kinds of bonds that live forever!

Dear Friends.. It is with great sadness that I must announce the passing of HRH FREDDY on Oct 15, 2010. He was every inch a HERO in this house,BRAVE, LOYAL, LOVING, SMART and Truly Courageous straight thru, and I am honored to have held him as he slipped away from us.He was laid to rest with Full "Military Honors" as befits a King. His stone out front is white with gold lettering that reads: HRH FREDDY BELOVED FATHER GRANDFATHER and SON" He leaves behind 4 grandpups now: 1) Prince Harry Jr -2 2) Princess Irene 2 3) Princess Suzie Jr 8 months 4) Prince Adam 3 months Having lost his children early from birth defects, I didnt want him to ever be without a "younger generation" and they really made a difference in his life!They ARE his "Legacy" and im proud of that! I will be loading up- to- date pictures of the Little Princes and Princesses.(Suzie Jr is minus an eye but she shows the stubborn FIGHT of her "Mother", Fred's "Suzie" who, despite her physical problems, lived and loved like a Prize fighter; her daughter has inherited this quality, its amazing! KNOW something..You and I are merely folks who LOVE our dogs and are lucky enough to see an increidble WORLD that exists at our feet! I am proud to be One of you All and THANK YOU for all these dear Letters and notes! Ity sure helps, esp now! HAPPY HOLIDAYS To you ALL and your Darling Babies! Your friend always! Tally
