And again, the "Wish You Enough" did not come from me it came from Gayle Haury at tak...@t6b.com and thank Ellen and jacqu...@gmail.com for their caring correspondence.
As you can tell, I'm not very "techie" with the Eskiepeople's web site but I sure love to read it and pray for those that need it the most and thank all the American Eskimo owners and, all dog owners, and rescuers for what they do every single moment of their days for God's beautiful creations.
My 14 pound American Eskimo showed up in our yard one morning and stayed around while we did work in the yard. It was like, she just appeared (Later on, I saw it as, she just showed up from HEAVEN, for ME)!
We walked the neighborhood trying to find if someone may have lost a beautiful white American Eskimo with a new purple harness and recently bathed. But no one had lost this dog. We advertised, called vets and hotels, and posted everywhere for three weeks to no avail.
After a few days, I don't believe I could have given her up anyway! In fact purple is my favorite color so it was a sign, she was to be mine to keep forever. She did not like the opening of pop top cans nor the rattling of a newspaper; she would run to another room. She definitely showed signs of abuse with the newspaper. She was a wonderful dog. We first had to have all her teeth pulled. Rotten teeth. The vet thought she was approximately seven years old. I figured maybe an older couple had owned her and did not think they had the money to pay for her teeth to be taken care of, therefore a reason to let her go. You know, how your mind can wonder! She lived til a year ago last June. Princess was 15 years old and had been totally blind the last two years. I was her eyes. She had and has my heart.
Previously before Princess showed up, I had pet sat in client's homes while they were away on vacation or business. After spending months crying over the loss of my precious one, I finally figured, I needed to get my pet fix's again and the only way I could do that on a regular bases, was to start pet sitting again. I now sit two adorable Labs, Jackson and Truman from the same home, one little Maltese from another home named Lucy and their cat, Bella, and a Wheaten Terrier from another home, named Duncan. I am getting my pet fix's but also plan to volunteer at one of the no-kill shelter's soon.
