NOOOOOOOO I love everyone in the house...I just meant if I was forced to only have one, she'd be it. Wanted to express that I was a show person who put alot of value on correct dogs...and then she came here and OMG she's just it for me...I'm just her claydough...she melts me all the time... and noone wanted her, noone...she was in foster for years person to person.
I also had a rough summer and it makes her even closer to me...someone dropped off a very old very cancer ridden female Chi in my yard...I have a kennel sign so it's not the first time one has been just left here.
But this one was old very old ...we took her in cleaned her up and the first thing is her toenails are so overgrown...no lie they are impacted into the pads...so I tell my hubby you hold her and hold her muzzle cause I have to get these out...and you know this dog a strange dog ...in pain in those feet, never moved...never cryed, never bit....and I cleaned the wounds and then took her to the vets, I knew she was terminal but at least the larger tummors could be removed to give her a soft tummy to lay on till she goes...and the tummors that hung past her knees off 5 of her 8 breast buds...one the size of a tangerine...could not be removed...her heart was sooooooooooo bad if they put her under it would kill her...but she was not in pain and she was eatting and she could get around...so I kept her 3 months and I got mad very mad looking at her and I called the news in our state capital ...Lansing and I got a reporter to come out and do a story on her...and I got to vent and I wrote a poem for her and I'm hopeing the nasty SOB that left her in my yard read it and can't sleep another night peacefully because of it....(just a wish I have)
And they took her picture and 2 weeks later just 10 days after the paper came out...we had to have her put down...in a matter of a day she had gone from functioning, and eatting and happy...to falling down and crying out and not eatting...and we went to the vet and she said it's time...and I held a little dog I had only had a few months of her very long life and I cryed and my heart broke ...and I kissed her and told her goodbye and took her home and burried her in my yard...and this this dog who I had only known a fewmonths loved me like she had always been with me.
And the paper came out the following week telling everyone that the little dog they had just featured on their front page no less just 2 weeks ago...had to be put down...and they ran a pic they had took and didnt run the first time...one of her kissing my face.
So between her and my Impy I'm an old dog lover and yes they aremy favs...sorry it affected me that deeply...I love all the doggies here, but yes the old ones the ones others deem worthless and throw aside...those are my favs...it's ok to be worried about my comments...I understand how I sound...but don't worry too much for every extra hug and kiss I give to Impy theres 4 other people in this house ...holding the other dogs and fussing over them and making them feel like they are someones fav.
