I received a call from a shelter near me. They had a little black Peke, only seven pounds, who had been there several weeks. Could we take her? I said I'd come get her. No other rescue would take her.
When I saw her, I thought, "Oh, no, I'm going to do it again." I saw she had a little mix in her, probably a Peke-Pom. But, if I didn't take her, she had no chance. She's only 1-2 years old we think. My vet saw her and thought she was very young.
I talked to Jeanne and Paige and they said, "SAVE HER!" So, I did and I brought her home. She can be a bit testy until she knows you-- but then she's a mush-ball. She's laying by my desk right now-- along with JoJo and Max. Kai Kai is close by and Scooter is in sight. (Where are Starlight and Cranberry??) :-)
I named this little girl Ellie. I have to come up with names between a shelter and the vet-- so that's what I came up with-- a suggestion of Caryn, another foster mom who is going to take her as her foster next week.
Ellie, you are all bluff! You were so good getting a bath.
And once she dried off, I started to put dishes away and make dinner and I turned around and Ellie was on the table!
How could something so small get on top of the table?
