My New Rescue Dog

No, I wasn't gone this long! But have I been busy! Besides doing Arts & Crafts shows, I got another dog. This is the story I must tell! My husband (Rich) & I were at a USO fund raiser. It was held at a Tapas Bar. The owner is also on the board of a dog shelter down in one of the rural areas of Missouri. She has a wall full of pictures of her favorite dogs from the shelter and a story about the shelter that you see as you leave the restrooms. WELL, me being the dog lover that I am and wanting to rescue every & all homeless dogs, this grabs my heart. I knew I couldn't have them all. So, I look them over and see this one rolled over on her back with one eye. I had to have her. I tell Rich. He comes & looks. We talk to Lisa (the bar owner) and she tell us the story she thinks is right. She thought she was 2 years old, 40 lbs and found by the side of the road. We said we'd take her! Lisa brought her to us. Here comes this big slow dog. We're thinking her description wasn't quite accurate. We took her home with our princess, Bella. Of course, Bella isn't quite sure of her. The next day we take the new dog, that we named Sasha, to the vet. We found out that she was 60 lbs and 7 years old. She was infested with fleas, so we had her bathed and groomed. Not what we expected. The owner of the shelter told us that Sasha was found wondering around by an elderly woman. She took her in & saw she had an injured eye, so the vet removed it. 9 months later she went to an assisted living home where she couldn't have Sasha, so her daughter brought her to the shelter. We gave the shelter a donation to help the dogs I couldn't bring home. Sasha is fitting in nicely to her new home. Bella still isn't sure, but Sasha loves her and is picking up all her spoiled habits. I can't imagine life without my new rescue dog. If you have the opportunity, adopt one!
