Awww I love these pictures. It sounds like you have shared many happy times together, and now you are taking good care of her. Best wishes to you both. She looks like such a little cutie pie! x

What an amazing girl! She has such beautiful markings. Give her lots of hugs and kisses.

Your story is fantastic! And to be 15 and still surprising everyone. It is great that Crissie has been introduced to the world through Daily Puppy. I feel blessed to know about her. Please give her a gentle kiss for me. She deserves it.

Aww, what a sweetheart! In her expression and spirit she reminds me so much of my favorite dog "Bug" and our last years spent together. Treasure every moment and take all the pictures and video you can, as I wish I'd realized then how much I would have liked to have it now. I'm sooo glad you got a second chance and can keep on enjoying your time together!

I makes my heart happy to hear about a dog such as yours! Love your precious angel!

Such a nice story about Chrissie. We should be so lucky to have human friends and companions as devoted as our dogs.
She sounds like she's determined to be with you as long as she possibly can. I hope the rest of her golden years are happy and comfortable with her Mom watching over her.
Bless you Chrissie girl.

We had Harley and Davidson, both mixed breeds and "pound puppies" for 15 years each. Their last year or so, their age was showing, however, they never lacked for positive attitude and we loved them to bits. I'm copying a line from your initial introduction to Chrissie: "Now 15, she's deaf, partially blind, a little senile, but still my baby girl. " Our local paper ran a cartoon of a woman introducing her old doggie in the same fashion and the caption over the head of the dog read: "I've got to get a better PR person!" We laughed out loud over the cartoon and the punchline became one we used around the house! Both Harley and Dave went to the Rainbow Bridge in 2007 and thoughts of them will always make us smile. Even frail, elderly dogs do it better than we do!! Snuggles to Chrissie from me in Ontario, Canada.

Chrissie! I don't know how you did it, making it through such adversity, you must have a resilient spirit and a wonderful person pulling for you. I'm happy to have met you! This picture is my favorite (though I love the through the fence shot too) you look like you're ready to play!

She is a beautiful dog. I love the pictures. Please give Chrissie kisses & belly rubs for me.

I'm Chrissie's mum. :) Thanks so much for the sweet comments about Chrissie! They really made my day. I'm so pleased that she got to be today's grown up puppy and share her story with the world. I'm away at college and miss her something awful, but my parents and sisters take good care of her. Next time I'm visiting I will give her extra cuddles and belly rubs for you all - she'll be very happy!

Chrissie, you just look so sweet to me.
Jan 20, 2008 LucyB
What a beauty she is and what a great story of you finding one another!

She looks like she's part Border Collie. I can tell by the 'freckles' on her legs. :) I had one growing up. VERY very smart dog indeed.

The rescue dogs are always the ones who tug at my heart strings the most. Love is a mighty healing medicine. Chrissie may not be able to speak, but I can tell you that she loves her human family very deeply.

My two dogs are both rescues. The older one I literally saved from a certain death as a starved puppy on a frozen street. Overnight, after some food, water, sleep and a bath he was running, jumping and playing like a little rascal showing so much personality. I can't imagine my life without him all these years. My newest doggie was also a rescue puppy but he wasn't nearly in such dire straights as I got him from my local shelter. The two of them are the best buddies now.

God bless you and keep you for saving Chrissie. You are a good soul.

What a beautiful and sweet girl Chrissie is! Thank you for adopting her, for loving her so much, for sharing her and your story with the rest of us. Dogs are the best! We who share our lives and love with them are so lucky, and surely better humans as a result of it! Much love to you both, and to your family for filling in while you are away.

I think Chrissie is beautiful! Thank you so much for rescuing her and letting her have the wonderful life she and all animals deserve. I hope she continues to fill your life with love that is unconditional. Much love to you Chrissie!

Chrissie is WONDERFUL & darling! She has the courage & stamina of a lion! Of course, she does it all for love-of you! How incredibly precious your relationship must be! You should be very proud of her & yourself for rescuing her despite all her challenges, supporting her no matter what & believing in her! You are both deserving of each other--you are both angels on earth! You demonstrate the power of love!

Chrissie is beautiful. I love older dogs becuase they are so sweet and always know when you need them. She will always be a puppy at heart. Give her lots of cookies for me.

[color=red] Omigosh... this story almost brought to full tears!! This was the sweetest story I've run across in awhile. Sure, the puppies are cute and adorable, but I just LUVVVVV the seniors... and this is no exception! Chrissie is SO LUCKY to have had a life with you, and living to 15 is testament to the good care and love she's received! My own "best friend", Buddy the Min Pin, is 16 yrs old and I'm dreading that day that I know will eventually come, but I smile knowing he's safe and warm even now, snuggled up under the covers on a Sunday afternoon. Best wishes from Dallas, Texas![/color]

Gotta love that face!!! One of a kind, which is why I just love the mixed breeds. Chrissie sounds like she has grown into the dog we all hope our naughty little puppies grow into. I also love the seniors, and it doesn't matter that she is deaf and can't see too well, she knows what you are saying, thinking and feeling. That's the beauty of that kind of long term relationship.

What a heartwarming story of love. Chrissie is a beautiful dog and it makes me happy to see such a wonderful bond. Chrissie has survived all the trauma in her life because of Mom's great love. Hugs and kisses from Kansas City, Kansas USA.

What a pretty girl. I love her freckles! Dogs have such amazing potential if given a chance, and some love. Of course, a comfy bed by the heater doesn't hurt, either!

Not everybody would adopt a dog with mange (too unsightly), let alone mange plus other conditions.. good on ya! Goes to show how life is a sum of parts, and being down doesn't mean staying there - especially when you are lucky to get the right friends.

My best pal was from a shelter, being rejected by an adoptive family because of a temporary health condition - and was scheduled for euthanasia (because they were crowded and the condition was contagious). I was a volunteer who fell in love and took her home. Best decision ever.

Love your gal, and the fact that her dear old heart just keeps beatin' for ya..

What a great rescue story. And the funny thing is, you probably feel she's given more to you than you have to her!
Jan 21, 2008 howiesmom
She's a very beautiful girl and lucky to have a mom like you!! Lucky You!!
Jan 21, 2008 jillieorama
What a beautiful girl--and what a beautiful story. I have a senior dog as well and he surprises us time and time again. I'm so glad Chrissie has you, that you've found each other, that she got to spend her years loved and cared for after such a terrible start. This was so moving. I wish you and your family--Chrissie included--much joy. :)

We have one who's 18. Her eyesight isn't too good, her hearing isn't as sharp as it used to be and she walks around and around in circles.

But she does have her lucid moments and can still give as good as she gets from our three year old Boston Terrier and year old Puginese.

They adapt beautifully. Many more years with Chrissie!

What a great story!
She is a beautiful dog.
You are very lucky to have her!!

What comes around goes around and you'll definately be rewarded for your kindness to this lovely sole. This picture is so wonderful I saved it to my laptop because it makes me smile!

One of a kind! Beautiful and smart. You are lucky to have found each other.
