This is my oldest dog, Gemma, she's 10, she was kicked out of a speeding car and broke her hip and then disappeared before we could help her-but reappeared some time later and sat on our doorstep on halloween night, dripping wet and terrified from the fireworks.
Her hip had healed already, badly, and we said 'we'd take her in for the night'
Thats been about 9 years now
Her hip was improved by surgery but she still has a gimpy walk
This is my baby Spencer, he is my shadow. I got a call about 3 years ago from the animal shelter (where I now work
) begging me to come look at a young collie in need of a very special home. (the boss already knew of me)
He had been locked up all his life and beaten and my boss bought him because he was dying from sunstroke in a trailor at a fete.
I took him home and he attached himself to me and wouldn't leave my side for days. Border collies apparently choose a 'shepherd' and he chose me.
He is a lot better now but still very giddy and jumpy around strangers.
And the newest bud is Joey, a 2 year old westie we got at 8 weeks old with hip dysplasia, and he had to get both hips done at 6 months because they were already crumbling. He's a little git
So they are my doggies
Everyone has such pretty little buds
