Hello everyone! Today was a super sad day when my Mom told me good-bye. I was supposed to be her forever—her heart dog—the first dog she had ever owned. And for 2 years it has been great.
Then it happened. The job that allowed her to work from home was calling her back into the field. It was not supposed to happen. We were happy working from home. She worked and I watched TV. But for the last few weeks I have been home alone for 12-14 hours at a time and I was sure lonely. I thought this apartment sure is small and how am I going on walks? I was miserable. I was so excited when my Mom did come home all I could do was spin in a circle and jump up and down.
Then we had a family meeting. The life I was living was not the life for me. I am a people bulldog. I want a back yard. I need to sit on laps and watch TV. I am a social butterfly. I had other fur friends that I now watched out the window playing. I wanted to play too!
My Mom loved me enough to let me join rescue. She wanted me to find a family with a yard, and some kids, and who would maybe take me to a soccer game. I can play soccer, can’t get the entire ball in my mouth but I can chase it.
My name is Mars. Every time someone would ask her why the name Mars, she would say “When I was a baby, she thought I was out of this world cute” and she named me Mars. So, if you see my Mom today she is crying and she needs a hug. I need a hug too, not because I am sad, I need a hug because I love, love, love people and hugging is the thing to do.
