Happy New Year for me… yep, it looks like I may be getting a brand new life for the brand new year. After roaming the streets, this very nice lady named Jennifer found me. She gave me a spa day and a warm place to sleep before taking me to a vet to check me out. The doc says I don’t hear so well because my ears are a mess and I have nasty worms in my heart. Yuck! That sounds awful… no wonder I don’t feel so well.
Luckily, Jennifer called Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. I heard that I’ll soon be going to see Dr. Larsen and be spoiled by her wonderful staff. And something about sitting on laps? Oh boy, I sure like to sit on laps! I think I’m about 3-4 years old and have had some puppies, but I’m done with that. I just want to be a puppy myself – after these nasty worms are out of my sweet little heart. Please watch for my updates as I get well and learn to be a puppy again!
1/2/20 Update: Sadly we have found out that Lilly Belle tested positive for heart worms and will receive treatment.
2/10/20 Update: Lilly is about four years old and has been a mom in the past, but those days are over. She now gets to be a lap dog. I’ll explain that a little later.
Dr. Larsen confirmed that her ears were badly infected and she does suffer from heartworms. First step is to clear up the ear infections and the heartworm treatment will begin.
Our photo shoot was a blast with Miss Lilly! She kept wanting to sit in everyone’s lap. There’s the lap dog reference. Especially mine. As soon as we would get her on the couch and I would set on the floor, she would jump off and run to get in my lap. The only way we could keep her up there was for me to sit close to her. She just loves you so much, she wants to be as close as she can to you. She is a beautiful girl and she looks like she is smiling all the time. She didn’t care about a treat or toy; she just wanted to sit on us or with us. I just LOVE HER! If I didn’t already have 5 of my own, I would have packed her up and taken her home with me.
Lilly is on medical hold for a while. She has her heartworm treatment to do and then 30 days rest time, which will be spent with her foster family. After that she will be ready to interview forever families.
In my volunteer role, I get to see, watch, play and touch all the Bulldogs that come into rescue. They all grab my heart and I love them all, but just like the families looking for their baby, sometimes, one just clicks. Lilly did with me. if Lilly Belle is the one that clicks with you, you’ve got my approval. If I didn’t have five beautiful babies of my own, YOU WOULD HAVE MISSED OUT!
2/17/20 Update: Inmate Lilly Belle checking in. Today is day 6 of my heartworm treatment incarceration. So far, I’ve moved from the general population area (aka the vet) to a more solitary confinement (aka foster home).
This place is fine. The two foster guards seem OK, even though they put pawcuffs on me when I want to wander around outside. They call it a leash, but they are pawcuffs to a girl like me who just wants to run and play. All I hear is, “No running, Lilly Belle! Calm down, Lilly Belle!” Ugh, so boring.
I heard through the the grapevine that March 27 is my freedom day. I am counting down the days, for sure! I can’t wait until I get out of here and be the crazy fun girl I normally am. Stay with me on my countdown to freedom, everyone!
