For those of you who don't know her, Sky is a beautiful Blue Chihuahua. She came from a home where she was neglected and living in very poor conditions with many brothers and sisters who I am praying for right now. My Mom was out shopping for a dog kennel (she likes yard sale shopping) when she stopped by a house where a man and woman told her that they indeed had a kennel. Well, when my Mom went to go look she saw many Chihuahuas all living together in the mud and filth and some were inside. Many were outside. The owners said that they all choose whether they want to live inside or outside but I doubt that any dog would choose to live outside in the cold winter with no love or attention. That was Sky's life. She didn't even have a name. They called her "Teacup" because she was so small, as if not having a real name was bad enough! They did not hesitate to try to make some money off of her so they offered her to my Mom and my Mom bought her because she felt so bad.
My Mom did this little dog the best favor in the world. Sometimes I secretly like to think that it's like Sky won the Puppy lottery. I love her, care for her, shower her with kisses, attention, and affection. In return she keeps me sane. If it weren't for her I would probably just stay in bed all day and sleep because I become depressed very easily. I am also indebted to my Mom because she had enough heart to not leave my Sky girl alone in the world. I think my Mom knew she was going to give me Sky. When I took Sky home with me my Mom kissed her goodbye and said "Take care of my baby, Sky, help her feel better, and that will help me feel better." My Mom knew Sky would help me
, and that I would help Sky.
And so our story together begins!
