I am typing this up, not my mum, so if I make any mistooks ...... sorry!! I don't understand what she means about "spell-chek"! Tutt!! What does she think I am?
It took mum and my doctor nearly 12 months and a lot of mum's pocket money but eventually I was diagnosed with what is called food intolerances, things with wheat and gluten especially, but egg, dairy, beef and pork don't suit me either - even chicken if it has been cereal fed!! Eughk!! Now I get fed James Wellbeloved products and I'm G-r-r-reat!!
(March - 2012 .... Now changed to Royal Canin Gastro Intestinal Low Fat because of my pancreatitis!) Even more expensive but it is yummy!! Mum says it looks like ****!!)
When I first came to my new home I was 10 months old and VERY VERY frightened!!
I had been poorly treated and fastened in a cage, left under the stairs because I kept being sick every day. This first photograph
was taken after I'd been cleaned up a bit and taken to my new home, but I was still a bit "phwooy" and mum's nose wrinkled a lot. I also had a few unwelcome visitors in my hair, but my new mum still stroked and hugged me! I was very frightened because I didn't know her very well, and didn't know what was going to happen!!
The next photograph where I'm sitting on an armchair was after I'd been washed, groomed and trimmed up.
I look a different little girl - but I'm not - I promise!!
Everything seemed very strange in this new home - and strange things were happening to me! I was just not used to being warm, having my very own warm, snuggly bed and being so comfortable after being in a cage. I was given lots of toys to play with - which Mum had to show me what to do with - cos I didn't know!! We did have some fun when I found out how to play!!
During this first year and indeed until I found this website my mum and me have had wonderful times together. I had my 'jections, and an opewation which made my tummy VERY sore, but mum said it was better for me so ..... that's OK, I trust her!! She took this photograph after I came home from doggy hospikal! I didn't feel very well at all!!
I have been for long journeys in the car to a place called Wakefield in Yorkshire where my Aunty and Uncle live. (My Uncle Edward went to Heaven last August and I did miss him when we visited earlier this year.
Mum and me love Uncle Edward!
I also love the seaside, but the sea can be a bit scary to little feet!!
but mum says it's nothing to be scared of when she's with me - nothing will be allowed, or DARE to hurt me ever again!!
An Uncle and Aunty from The Wirral come to visit, and we've been there too!!
I was very tired after running on the beach and enjoyed being given a cuddly by my aunty!!
I'm having a great life now, and I love my new family so very much! Mum says my tail is a blurr when I see them and I get so excited!! Mum says I must "calm down", but I can't - I just love my new family and friends! My tail is out of control and mum says I cause a draffft with it!!
Because mum has a bad back and can't carry me very far now without being in pain, (even though I'm only 'just' 3kg), for where I can't walk, where there are too many people in a shopping area or places like that where I can get scared, she has bought me a 'doggy buggy'!
(April 2012 ..... I also have a much smaller baby's pushchair now - easier to fold up and carry in the car mum says.
This one in the photographs my Aunty Mary and Uncle Edward called it my Red Ferarri!!
I have lots of "fans" now - and I am going to tell them about this website. They can have a look round and meet more "wet noses"!!
I like to play with my cousin Whisky -
here we are on his lawn during the summer.
I'm off for my tea now so see you later!! Bye-bye!!
