Puppy: No Puppies
Profile: We share our life with 11 furry kids.Annie was one of five pups our Kayla and our Pancho had. A better friend no one ever had. A stronger more loving spirit never existed. All of us miss her very much and we're all very proud to have called her friend. Will be adding pictures of the rest of the crew and their stories. Most are rescues. The pups (now 3 years old, always pups) we couldn't bear to part with. I got to live my childhood dream ~ I kept them all! Starting with the oldest of the 'kids they are: Jamie - 13 the original 'NO-NO BAD DOG! She was dumped on the street and lived in the pound for a month. Being a Terrier she spent the next 11 years of her life making up for that month! Next is Zoe - 13 the 23 lb. wanna be boss of the pack. She can 'hold off' Pancho (130 lbs.) from his food if she wants it. Proof that it is, all in the attitude. She is a delight to be around. She also was dumped on the street. Roxy is 12 now. She was dumped on the side of a parkway. For 4 months she lived there, crossing busy streets to get food from a gas station (rolls for breakfast), a frankfurter stand ( Lunch of course) and she would stand at the open door of a school bus every school day. We never found out who she was searching for. One day on my way home from work, I saw her again. This time I was armed with a chicken cutlet and a genoa salami sandwich. As she went to reach for the chicken I grabbed her. She has been with me ever since. This brings me to Brinney who is now 11.My dear brindle bear. He and 6 others, all aproximately 4 months old, were being raised as puppy bait for pit bull fighting. He hardly resembled a dog. He had severe worms & sarcoptic and demodex (SP?) mange. It took him 2 months to be able to run (he is still bowlegged). For a year and a half He was treated for his mange. We are soooo close now because we spent so much time together. What a life we have had! He is such a good friend.Everyone loves him, except Pancho. Scooter is part Spitz and it's possible her dad was coyote. She was being given away at a supermarket. I couldn't leave her in that box so she came home with me. My husband (then boyfriend) had just had to let his dog Nikki go 'home' and he was devastated. She turned out to be his soul-mate. They are inseparable.She even has a seat in the cab of his tractor. She is smart enough to understand EVERY word he says and loves so deeply that when he has to leave her home she lays down in the driveway watching and waiting for him. The joy of their reunion is full of jumping, kissing, hugging and loud joyous crying. While I watch them together I know I was led to the store that day. Kayla was one of a litter advertised in the paper. A breed that is illegal so I was immediately drawn to it. I called and found out that they also had a little female they hadn't advertised. She had to come home to me. She is the only 'kid I've ever paid for as there are so many that need help. I was drawn to her. What a little ball of love and fun. There are so many memories of her puppyhood that come to mind I can't even begin to write them. She was an immediate positive energy to our existing pack. She was friends with Brinney from day one;loving to all but especially Brin. Pancho came next. We were told about him by a neighbor. He was kept tied up in a yard and his owners(?) wanted to get rid of him. After visiting him a couple of times I noticed he was getting increasingly testy. I told my husband about his need and he went to see him.That was friday. On Monday we took him home and life has never been the same. His first few months here were rough. He didn't understand a pack and there were a few 'incidents'. He almost set the house on fire in an attempt to get out of the house one day when he was closed in. He ripped screens and found his way into a field of cows where he barked at these strange creatures causing some distress to these quiet beings. And he loved Kayla with all his heart. Which brings me to the pups! I was irresponsible. Kayla hadn't been spayed yet and I didn't keep track of her heat. When she became pregnant There were friends crawling out of the woodwork wanting them. She had 5 babes with Pancho. They are great parents still - 3 years later. Zebediah was born at 6:20 AM on April 14 2005. Before I can add anymore I must announce that Our Jamie Girl Has gone over the rainbow bridge to her wonderful new home. She is missed so much, but she needed to get her young body back so she could run and enjoy herself again. She is still loved very much. See you soon, Jamie Girl!
