India

In a nutshell, my little black pomeranian India is the answer to some thirty-mumble years of wishes, hopes and dreams. You see, I've always been violently allergic to anything with fur or feathers, yet I've wanted a puppy since I was about four. At Christmas (age five) all my friends were making wish-lists on behalf of their puppies, so I made one for "my puppy", a Snoopy dog that I'd dragged around by the ears for years in lieu of a "real puppy." I asked for dog biscuits for Snoopy, and my parents, not being ones to squash a small child's imagination, gave them to me. And I, desperate to have a real dog of my own, ate a dog biscuit every day "for Snoopy" (until my parents caught me and explained to me that the faux-puppy life didn't need to be carried to that extent). (Fast forward) Last fall, I met a pom that didn't make me stop breathing or hive up or sneeze. Hope crept into my heart like ivy tendrils taking hold of a brick wall. After much searching, I found a breeder nearby (Cyndi Wolfe of Wolfe Kennels) who raised poms and was incredibly patient with me. I visited her house to see if I could tolerate other poms, I held her pups and smooshed them in my face to see if they'd make me hive, and I visited India when she was 6 weeks old to see if, maybe, she'd be the semi-hypo-allergenic pup that I'd been searching for. (At this point I should confess that if I don't take my Zyrtec every day, and if India doesn't get bathed with the allergen-suppressing shampoo every week, and if I don't remember *not* to rub my eyes, then the story would certainly have a different ending. But as it is, I have a little ball of black fluffylove that I adore. India's just over 10 months old no and incredibly spirited ("sassy" is how one of my friends describes her). She "talks" a lot (apparently common with poms) and is quite clever: she can "sit" (momentarily, I admit), "down", "spin", "walk" (on her rear legs), "creep" (on her belly), "shake" and "speak". Everywhere we go, people want to pet her (and I can't blame them, as she's as soft as a stuffie) and for her part she wants nothing more than to increase the "net love" in the universe with kisses. She's even philanthropic -- at Halloween she and I walked in the Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation walk -- with her in costume as a bat and me as Draculette -- and raised more than $600.
