The first time I was in rescue, I was just a puppy, named Dottie, and I have been living with a wonderful family for the past six years. But things changed.
Two years ago, I was diagnosed with Cushing’s disease and have been doing fairly well. But recently my mom became very ill and she’s expected to be sick for a long time. My dad was really struggling to take care of my needs and mom’s needs too.
I reminded him of these wonderful rescue people I knew and that I could go back to them. They would take care of me and he could take care of mom.
Yesterday, we packed up all my stuff and two big bags of my food. And guess what? I went back to the same place where I was adopted, and the nice lady who saw me adopted was there again to hug me and welcome me back.
Everyone says I am very sweet. I get along with dogs and kids. I have lost some hair because of my disease so I may not be as pretty as I once was. But I make up for it with personality! I am 7 years old and a little plump. We blame that on the disease too.
I am off to meet Dr. Larsen for a few days and have some more tests to see what more they can do to help me. I can’t wait to meet everyone again.
