One year and 5 days ago, a lady at the shelter was filling up a needle, it was my final moments of life. My luck changed when her phone rang. There was a lady on the other end that said "Please don't kill that dog! Send her to NY!" The lady at the shelter was relieved, a lot of the shelter staff really liked me and they tried very hard to find me a rescue. After many days with no response, my time had come. But, somehow my story got to my foster momma... she knew only of my name and my breed, but something made her make that phone call.
This is the picture foster momma got of me after she saved me.
One year and 3 days ago, I was walked out of the shelter in Kentucky and was loaded into a big van filled with lots of crates and lots of other dogs, just like me. I was off to my new start. I was off to New York.
This was me when I got off the transport and met foster momma.
One year and 2 days ago, I was taken off that van by a really nice lady who hugged me and smooched me and told me life was going to be good from now on. I knew her voice, it was the one on the other end of the phone that saved my life. I was scared and unsure, but I trusted her. She put me in her car and took me home where I met Corbin and Foster Dad.
This is when I met Corbin.
During this past year, I have learned that life really IS good. I have learned that so many things aren't as scary as I thought they were. I have made many friends, human and canine. I have a warm bed to sleep in every night, meals that fill my belly every day and I have more love than I could ever absorb.
Lots of love can make a scared girl into a confident one!
Here are some of my favorite times of the last year, there are lots of them, but I narrowed it down to just a few!
I love having grass to roll in.
My first smooch with Corbin!
I did two 5K's with foster momma!
I learned how to ride on a boat and swim in water!
I really loved the lake!
I liked the snow too!
Once I realized it wasn't scary.
I love being silly!
And snuggling with the foster momma.
I've really come a long way in 1 year, from the scared little girl
who came out of the shelter and off a transport,
to the happy, confident, well mannered girl who walks proud
smooches often and sleeps soundly knowing I'm safe.
One year and 5 days ago, my life almost ended... and here I am, one year and 5 days later living a wonderful life, with wonderful foster people and wonderful foster siblings. I'm so thankful for this past year and I can't wait for my next year and all the years after that! I'm ready for my forever home and I just know this is the year for it to come!
Thanks for following along with me this year and watching me grow!
Lots of love & smoochies,
