I have a new friend. She was not expected and sadly is only temporary. She is sweet as can be and definitely a funny girl. She had a rough month, but things are looking up for her. Life is getting better everyday. Meet Peanut. She is a four year old champion show pug that went to live with an elderly lady after leaving her show family due to having to have a c-section to deliver her puppy. Since she could no longer be a breeder bitch and couldn't be shown any longer either, she was no longer any use. Unfortunately the lady that took her, although well intentioned, soon found that she was not willing to care for her the way Peanut needs. This is where I come in. Peanut came to me last Sunday. In one month's time, she has left her known family and home, traveled across the country with multiple stops at scary (she is a nervous little girl) and unknown places, been spayed with complications and pretty much lost every known comfort she was used to. As many of you know, I have very recently lost my beloved pug companion and as many of you don't know, unexpectedly also lost my large golden companion in less than a month. However, when I was contacted about Peanut, how could I refuse to help her. She came to me with a crusty, sore pug nose wrinkle and a bloody infected ear and lots of trepidation. She was too afraid to eat and I even had a hard time getting her to drink water. She was in pathetic emotional shape. She was afraid to do anything but climb up on my lap and shake with fear while she tried to get as close you me as possible to snuggle. But, in just a few days time, she is now smelling sweet and fresh (she loved the shower), has a healing ear, clean nose wrinkle and a whole new outlook on life. She now races around in pug circles, scampers across the floor and plays with her little toy. She still snuggles and soon as there is a friendly lap she can make use of, she want to climb up and share warmth and love. Although I would love to keep her, as I have fallen in love with her and all her precious pug sweetness, it is too soon and we are not ready for another companion. I have to respect my families feelings in this matter and so I am looking for a loving pug friendly parent for her who will give her the attention she craves and so obviously deserves. Whom ever it is must be willing to let her sleep on the bed, feed her premium vittles, clean her ears and nose daily, take her with them often and most importantly, love her as unconditionally as she will love them. If you know of someone or are interested yourself, please contact me via email. I am hoping for a smooth transition so as to make it as comfortable for her as possible. She likes other dogs, seems to be thrilled with walks, is leash trained, house trained and has a well developed personal style (she has three adorable jackets for this cold Montana weather).
This morning she is having coffee in town with me and couldn't be happier about it. She is happily snoring here on my lap as I type the. What a lover she is!
Have a wonderful Friday.
