Yesterday was my big day, it was my adoption day! My new Mom, Kathleen drove 5 hours in the rain and rush hour traffic to finally get to meet me. My new Mom brought my new sisters with her, and wow they would not let my get up in her lap. I used my manners and stayed on the ground but wow did I want up in her lap to. I understood my 2 new sisters might be kinda scared of me because I was a lot bigger so I just let them have their way. When my Mom told me she loved me I just melted and she told me she had waited a long time for me to move in and I knew right then I had made the right choice with finding my new family. If you will remember I joined rescue because my real sister Axl Rose was really sick. Well, she is not sick any longer and she is ready for her new family also. We had talked about staying together but then we decided each one of us needed a family that had a big lap for us to sit on. Axl Rose and I said our good-byes and it was great. We will stay in touch thru social media and we are excited to start the next chapter of our lives with our new families.
Are you thinking you’ve seen this face before? Well, maybe… My sister is Axl Rose and she joined rescue last week. Ever since Axl left, I could hardly eat or drink because I was worried about her. Axl was so sick when she left the house. I was a nervous wreck just wondering how she was doing.
I heard through the grapevine that Axl had an emergency surgery on Sunday because the other one didn’t keep her lady parts in place. I had a Bulldog meltdown and begged to leave to be with my sister. So, here I am. I saw my sister today. We were face-to-face and I licked her on her cheek. I begged to get in the crate with her, but due to her delicate state, all I could do was sit by her, tell her I loved her and that she was going to be alright.
I cried big Bulldog tears when I saw Axl because she and I are like twins. Same size, same colors, same personality… really same everything except I am the brother. And, as a brother, I will be right beside my sister, holding her paw and helping her get well. I too need a little surgery, but I expect that to be a piece of cake compared to what Axl had. Hopefully, we can have a photo shoot together soon.
9/16/18 Update: Update from foster boy Alex: I’m checking in today so everyone will know how my sister Axl Rose and I are doing. As you might remember, my sister Axl Rose was in critical shape when she joined rescue because, well, her lady parts prolapsed… and what was supposed to be on the inside was on the outside. And I knew she was very sick. I begged to join her, to comfort her, and support her. And I got to do just that.
I have been by her side and I am happy to report her stitches come out Tuesday and she is doing amazing. And me? I had a little surgery myself and I am doing amazing! My stitches come out on Tuesday too. Sooooo, you know what that means. We’ll be leaving the vet clinic to head to a foster home, and then we will be looking through the applications for our new family.
As you can see from the pictures, I am a little bigger and thicker. That’s because I am a fella. Axl Rose was so sick, she didn’t eat much, so she is smaller and thinner. We both love people and other dogs. We might chase a cat or two, but never in a mean way. We just love to see cat fur fly. We would love to be adopted together, but we are both OK now being apart. We both love attention, we both jump and run and play. We are Alex and Axl Rose and we are 2 years old.
