Covered in fleas and ticks Bette needed a rescue along time before she joined ours. Even though Bette was dark brindle it was easy to see the ticks crawling and the fleas jumping off her. Bette was found wandering in a small west Texas town in sad shape. Bette has a very large growth on her rear leg, which will need to be addressed by our vet ASAP.
The tumor on Bette’s hip was removed and it was benign with clean borders. Bette’s bad life is behind her now, all the fleas and ticks are gone, and Bette begins to heal. She has a long road to recovery but she is doing great!
4/10/18 Update: I’ve been sprung from the vet, and I’m feeling spry! No more fleas or ticks and that big nasty tumor was benign and is now gone! Woot-woot!
My foster mom, dad and fur siblings are so nice. I get treats, get to run and play, and even got a special belly rub. ❤ ❤ I forgot how good it feels to be cared for, pet and loved – I’ve missed it…I’m crate trained, potty trained and good with other dogs! And, foster mom says I have the cutest-wiggliest run of any bully she’s ever seen. Basically, I’m practically perfect in every way! TTFN – Bette Lou
4/22/18 Update: It’s me, Bette! 🐾 This has been the best week at the foster crib.❤I thought I’d let you know some of the cool things I did so you can learn a little more about me. 🙌🏼 First off, foster brother still does NOT understand that I have claimed the middle dog bed in front of the fire place (He is such a pouter!). So, whatever… I let him share and we cuddle up in one bed (but between you and me, he needs to move it or start eating less because this girl needs her beauty sleep and he is crampin’ my style!). Speaking of sleeping, I got to get my tan on with afternoon sun naps with the siblings – it is so nice to be safe and secure so I can rest peacefully. 🌝
This week, I also learned about these things called ‘toys’… As you can see from my picture, I chewed on a bone🍖! But, I’ll be honest, I’m not sure I get the point of the toys. Did you know you can’t eat them?! What’s the…!? OH! I have also officially taken on some chores at the house, including bathing foster sissy. She thinks it is just me giving her kisses, but secretly, I am bathing her (what she doesn’t know won’t kill her!).👅
As you can see. it has been a pretty exciting week! But, the biggest, most exciting thing that happened…. I GOT TO SLEEP ON THE BIG PEOPLE BED! 🛌Yes, you heard that right! I slept on the big bed with my foster parents – right in the middle of them! It was ah-mazing! So amazing, that I have now updated the application information to require a king or queen size people bed that I can sleep in with you… So, please plan accordingly😊 TTFN – Bette Lou
