Saturday was my Gotcha Day and alot of my blogville friends know the story of how Mom went with a friend of a friend to a breeders farm to deliver newspapers to her. Mom was appalled and very sad when she saw the conditions of this farm. She didn't even want to get out of the car. The first thing this person asked mom is if she was from USDA and we guess she was worried she would be in TROUBLE for the conditions Mom was seeing. Once she realized Mom was not and was basically held captive she showed Mom around. Mom said later it took her days to get that smell out of her nose and hair. Mom and Dad's little minpin had just went to the rainbow bridge and they were not looking for a dog yet. She kept showing Mom old breeder dogs that Mom could just have, but Mom said no, and it broke her heart to do that. Mom said she was just in shock cos she didn't know about these places. The nursery was in a creepy basement and as she showed Mom new puppies Mom said her eyes kept watering from the smell and her heart breaking. They handed her a little black dog that was 4 months old-- that looked like a baby gorilla and told mom that she was almost blind and they couldn't sell her, so she would stay in the basement and become another breeder dog. Mom somehow ended up carrying that stinky little dog around while she saw the rest of the place. That little dog was living with 4 bigger dogs, so she was not well cared for nor well fed and did we mention she smelled really bad. When it was time to go, Mom got ready to hand the dog back to the devil woman, and the woman told her she could just keep her cos the vet bills for her would add up for the breeder. Mom said no they weren't ready for another little dog yet, so when it was time to put her back in the cage, MY Mom froze up and her eyes were wet, and she looked into that little weird face and said she would take her home forever. . On the way home stinky dog laid in the seat beside MY Mom and Mom said I think your name should be STELLA ROSE cos you deserve something beautiful in this world. That is my gotcha story. That was just a small part of my life, only 4 months and now I am 3.5 years old I have many more wonderful memories and those are what I think about. My mom loves me with all her heart and I love her with all my heart. I have taught my Mom so many lessons in life and my Mom has taught me all about having a loving Mom and Dad. Here is a picture of me after I lived with my Mom for a month. I look much better!
Here are yesterdays pictures.
Have a great Monday friends..remember we have to get through a Monday so we can get closer to Friday.
