We're pawticipating in Murphy and Stanley's FFHT!
I was born in a puppy mill in Oregon. I spent the whole first year of my life there, stuck in a cage. The only time I was let out was to do my business or to make babies. I didn't get the opportunity to truly be a puppy, or to know the love of a human. It was a horrible life. Just when I thought things couldn't get worse... The state stepped in and closed the puppy mill down. All of the animals there were taken to another state and auctioned off.
I ended up with a family who had a young son. I stayed there for a year or so, and life wasn't so bad. Then the family had another baby. I was no longer welcome in the house and lived mostly in the garage and the back yard. That's no life for a dog! Just when I thought things couldn't get worse... The family decided they wanted a bigger dog, so they got rid of me.
I live inside now, have lots of toys, and lots of love. I sleep in a warm bed with my mom and Shiver at night instead of a cold garage. We cuddle throughout the day, and I feel very safe and secure. I had a rough start, but now I have a wonderful life. I only wish all doggies and kittehs could be as lucky as me.
