I work full time in a Hospital, my wonderful husband “to be” and I take turns looking after our babies. I wake-up early, go to work to come home early and my “hubby” to be goes to work late and comes home late. Our schedule provides for minimal time that our furry babies would be alone. And when they are alone for that short period of time, we have a rescue German Shepard that has taken on the role of home protector as well as Pomeranian bodyguard… and he takes his responsibility very seriously.
Lady was abandoned. Her Pommy Mum had a stroke and when her family decided to put her in a nursing home, Lady was put out on the street. She was found wondering the streets at 14 years old. Animal control picked her up and off to the pound she went… and the family refused to pick her up. It was heart breaking. How could anyone leave a precious baby at the pound when you have known her for so long. I’m still baffled. A friend of mine heard about Lady’s plight and called me up and explained the situation… as she explained, she was too old and to frail to be at the pound. It took me all of 3 seconds to gather my things and drive the 120 Kilometers to go pick her up.
My little baby Sophie was rescued from a Puppy Mill and it has taken us three years to get her to understand what it means to be be a loved Pomeranian. She came to us in pretty bad shape and had to undergo more than $11,500.00 dollars worth of medical treatment. I know it sounds like a lot but I would have paid twice as much to be able to give this wonderful furry baby a better life.
Pomeranians are my life. I have rescued 13 Pomeranians and found 11 new homes. I have decided to keep the ones that many people find a burden. Funny thing, I see the challenge of a senior Pom with Dementia (Lady) and Sophie’s medical problems as a way understand a higher calling. I wouldn’t change anything for the world, especially when the two are fighting over the bed and Lady dobs Sophie… and then tells me all about it. It makes me cry with laughter every time.
I didn’t choose these doggies, they chose me… it’s the Pomeranian way. I am so glad they came into my life, they truly make it a better place to be. I love my girls and I highly recommend adopting and if you are thinking about adopting… please consider adopting an older dog. They are low-fuss and genuinely a pleasure to be around. Everyone wants the puppies, but older dogs love just as much and don’t destroy your house!
