Our 43-pound chihuahua

Monday, November 28, 2011

OK, so first off, she's not really a chihuahua. My husband and I joke about that because the group that rescued her had her listed as a chihuahua. (In their defense, she WAS really little when they got her!) She was brought from that group to the rescue group from whom we adopted her (because the first group was a shelter that unfortunately could not keep animals too long, if you get my meaning). I don't think the new group changed her listing when they took her over. She looks to be a real mix - maybe some Boxer, maybe some Pit Bull, maybe some hound. She got a crappy start in life - both police and animal rescue were involved in her rescue. She had burn marks on her and a cut that the vet thinks was made by a knife. She was 8 weeks old - what sicko did this to her?

At any rate, she's a real doll and now, at 18 months old, weighs 43 pounds and is a lap-sitter. I sat outside yesterday and she got up in my lap and, after making sure my face was completely clean, fell asleep curled up on me with her head against my shoulder. That is truly one of my " simple pleasures"!

    Had to read this blog because of the title. I don't know who could hurt a little defenseless animal. Or big one for that matter. i sometimes wish the same treatment on the perpetrators.
Wish you would have included a photo.
I will check your page to see if you have any,
i love all animals, but partial to dogs.
I have rescued quite a few. At one time had 6 in my Miami Beach apartment.
Found homes for all. That was after Hurricane Andrew.
Have an Yorkie, named Titan. i have lots of photos of him, He is my cuddle bunny and walking buddy.
Take care. So glad you were there to give this adorable dog a home.

    WELL, I HAD TO READ ANY BLOG THAT SAID 43 POUND CHIHUAHUA! I AM APPLAUD BY WHAT PEOPLE DO TO ANIMALS AND OUR TREATMENT OF EVEN ANIMALS WE USE FOR FOOD. OUR RESCUE DOG WE THINK CAME FROM A PUPPY MILL...SHE HAD UNUSUAL HABITS, ETC. SHE HAD SO MANY THINGS WRONG WHEN MY HUSBAND FOUND HER ON THE STREET AND EVEN TOOK A BITE TO GET HER IN THE CAR OFF THE ROAD...AND SHE NEVER BIT...SHE WAS THE SWEETEST, GENTLEST DOG WE EVER KNEW. MY HUSBAND HAD NEVER HAD A DOG AND I STILL TELL HIM...THAT IS NOT WHAT DOGS ARE USUALLY LIKE. SHE STILL LIVES IN MY HEART TODAY.
I LOVE YOUR STORY WITH YOUR SWEET RESCUE! ENJOY.

    Yes, there is nothing quite like the feeling of having a dog or cat curled up on one's lap.....any problems just seem to melt away!
Take care,
Kathy
