As part of Frankie Furter's khool idea we all share our adoption stories today , I'll inkhlude Merdie's as well as a few other khanines!
Unkhle Paul and Aunt Shannon had gotten Lexie (from a bakhkyard breeder type but they didn't know of the options bakhk then) and wanted to get her a sibling. They were at a lokhal restaurant and got to talking with someone there...she had pikhs of her Goldens...the khonversation went to how a furiend of hers was trying to find a home fur one she had...they went to see her the next day and VOILA! The rest is history - as 'they' say!
Merdie lived most of the furst year of her life OUTSIDE in a farm environment...no warm bed...no toys...no walks...no khute khousins...AND did I mention exposure to thunderstorms and such? She still has anxiety issues with them but all of us know how to help her when they happen - of khourse, she knows they are khoming prior to her furamily ESPECIALLY since she lives within sight of the Susquehanna River
Unkhle Paul just asked me if I was still working on the post fur he wanted to add that when they furst saw 'Tallulah' she was khovered in briars and mud. Aunt Shannon saw the beaWOOty in her! She was also khwite mopey and nevFUR smiled fur she didn't know LOVENOW look at her!She gets her pikhk of my stuffies when she khomes to visit...she gets to be part of my bitey body games...and she gets lots of special attention from her furamily and mine!
Sadly, I didn't get to meet Lexie - she khrossed in January of 2005 so I didn't get to meet her 'here' but I will someday! Unkhle Paul just told me that when Lexie khrossed, they had initially wanted to bury her on their property but that wasn't pawsible with Merdie around...Merdie would have brought her bakhk...Merdie is furever bringing them 'special finds' - one year it was pretty much an entire deer ONLY in pieces. A neighbour of theirs would process his deer and toss them down into the woods behind their house. Merdie would always furry proudly retrieve them and bring them home! Merdie is also furry good with Oswald 'issues' (if woo know what I mean)!
Here is a pikh I've shared here befur...the furst day my mom saw ME at the York Khounty Bed&Breakfast
I've shared my story here so I'll not inkhlude it again BUT if woo visit the link, you'll see a pikh of me (and my mom) on my furst day here!I don't think my past life inkhluded such khomfy poses!
As part of this THANKFUL FUR FUREVER HOMES post, Mom wanted to inkhlude two of my Xterra's transport passengersArcher's furever hoomans sent this pikh with an update to those that helped get him (along with Anja) from GA to NJ! Here is the link to his post on Monday MOMday from July 2009 . Mom rekhalls how sweet he was but soooo needing some good food! Well, here is the note his mom sent along with his pikh
Thought you'd like to know, Asher weighed in last week at 57 lbs.! He's gained a much-needed five pounds. He's now a husky husky. And his coat is absolutely beautiful. Life here seems to be agreeing with him.
Sometimes I call him Ashley, for Ashley Wilkes, my "gentleman from Georgia." He really has a sweet disposition. He's loving the cool weather and long fall hikes. Can't wait to see him in the snow.
We'll be thinking of you when we give thanks on Thursday, once again blessing all those who helped bring us together, and especially you Beverly, who gave so much time to him, and to us
Doesn't he look like he's been there like FUREVER???
Merdie and I would like to wish all of woo a furry nice THANKFUL THURSDAY!
We are THANKFUL FUR WOO!
Khyra and Merdie
