Profile: Hi, my name is Melinda. I live in Texas and spent alot of my growing up days living on farms. Being in the country meant having lots of animals; calves, ferral cats, and stray dogs. I guess my mom and dad nurtured my love for animals because of their loving and compassionate ways with them. There was never a hungry or mistreated animal on our place. Being a kid in the country also meant there weren't alot of other kids around to play with, so the dogs became my playmates. That is how my passion for these beautiful, loving creatures began.

This is my puppy,Scooter. Scooter is 2 weeks old and an orphan that I have been bottle-raising since he was 1 day old. His sweet little mama, my Rat Terrier, Baby had to be put to sleep due to a veternarian's mistake during a C-section/spay. He weighed 1.5 oz.at 3 days and weighed 4.5 oz. at 10 days, as you can see he's doing well and is quite the little butterball. Update:5/6/10 Scooter is 6 months old now and absolutely spoiled rotten! He still thinks I'm his mother and gets in my lap and sucks in the bend of my elbow when he needs comforting. He weighs over 10 lb now, which I find amazing since his mother only weighed 5 lbs.View Profile
