Dis nice gal
named Stacey came on Sunday to take me to her house. Two nice ladies in San Antonio
picked me up off the street cause I was lost. They had dese little dogs that
looked a lot like me.
Rose was found on Saturday the 27th
wandering the streets of San Antonio. A nice lady took her in
and gave her a bath. The lady that found her was sure she was
somebody's pet, so she put up fliers and was
going to keep her until the owner showed up.
Well, Rose is kinda a pushy dominant girl and
didn't get along real well with the lady's three
Miniature Schnauzers, so she called Deb for help.
Deb called me to see if I could foster Rose. I
drove down and picked her up Sunday afternoon.
She rode in a crate in my van just fine, not a peep
out of her. Got her home and realized her
furnishings would have to come off because they
were so badly matted. She is a medium coat.
pretty harsh texture on the jacket, even
clippered but she does have a good deal of
furnishings. She has her front dew claws
Rose is docked
and cropped. She has had a litter before, maybe
within the last 3 months because she has very
little muscle tone. She is a complete DOLL with
people. Incredibly lovable. Tried to introduce
her to Lukas and that didn't go too well.
She does NOT like
cats. I took her to the Vet this morning to weigh
her and have her scanned for chips. Nothing there
either. She weighed 72 pounds, probably due
to the lack of muscle. The Lady in San Antonio is
running an ad in the paper, calling the local
shelters, putting up fliers etc. to see if an
owner can be found. I scheduled an appt. to have
all of her vetted and get her spayed on Oct. 6th.
Rose came to us from Texas. Magnum and I were looking on the rescue
website...when he saw her picture - he howled. I flipped through more
pictures....every time I came to her picture, he howled.
We drove down to get her from Stacey Reynolds who had been fostering her.
We arrived on January 2nd, 2004 - Rose got out, met us, kissed us, got in
the truck and away we went. She was the perfect traveler for the 17 hour
drive. We hit snow on the way home so had to stop for a few hours rest.
This was the first time that sweetheart had seen snow....little did I even
realize that till we had walked and walked and played and walked in the foot
deep snow....finally to bed we go!!! She could not decide who to sleep with
- me or my son Eric - she bed hopped all night long.
Arrived to meet Magnum....oh boy! He was happy to see her - and she was not
happy to meet him. The fight was on. ok...so we crate and explore...crate
and explore. It took several weeks before they decided to play nice. We
had a few tiffs...but they decided it was going to be ok. They are
Rose had a tough time figuring out the stairs in the house - ended up
jumping down the flights of stairs and stretching out as tall as could be to
get up them....would not go down to the basement for weeks....finally she
decided to see Eric, she would do it. It was funny to watch her and to see
her learning to trust us. She did master the dog door within a few days.
She loves everyone, hates cats. Has learned to look out the window on the
stand that Mark, my husband made for her and Magnum.
Food was a real issue with her for the first month...and now knows that she
will be fed - and she can feel safe knowing she will not starve. She has
gained some weight....and does leave food in her bowl now. That is a
tremendous step in trusting that we will care for her.
Rose is silly, funny, runs and plays great, loves toys - has her own toy box
filled with all kinds of toys that she takes outside one by one when I
vacuum the house. She is a sweetheart and a very loving girl. She kisses
Magnum, kisses his ears and has learned to rippppppp.
Thank you so much for this precious girl. Magnum picked her - and we are
keeping her. She is wonderful.
Jolie, Mark, Eric, Magnum and Rose.
One happy family.
