I also hopped onboard the rescue train! I am about as Southern as they get. I might be a bit “fluffy,” but that comes from tasting all the Southern comfort food.
Rescue day was the day I had been waiting for…. because I know I’ll get the care I need. You see, sometimes, I can hardly breathe. It’s like I can’t get enough air. And don’t get me started about how it feels when I try to play “Red Rover, Red Rover, let Paula Deen come over.” Running is nearly impossible.
I have called Dr. Lay and he is going to come look down my throat and see what he can see. I hear he has a surgery that will help me have a fabulous life. One time, I fell onto the floorboard of my mama’s car and I died. True story. Lucky for me, she got me up and cooled down. I was close to a vet’s office, thankfully, because I would have been a goner, for sure. I remember that day well. I could not breathe, I was hot, and I was going to have babies.
So, with all that being said, I thought this rescue train was a perfect opportunity for me. This queen of Southern food is ready to be the queen of someone’s couch soon.
4/13/21 Update: Paula is a sweet and cautious little girl that just wants to be with you and loved. She is unsure at first, but you can tell she wants to trust us so bad. It took her a couple of days to come out of her crate, but we let her take all the time she needed and out she came.
Paula has spent her four years on this Earth having babies in a crate. She is learning what it is like to go outside to do her business on the grass and she doesn’t understand how just yet. She will potty on the concrete outside, but mainly anywhere and everywhere. It’s just what she knows. Foster mom and dad will give her all the time she needs. Our blankets and floors wash very easily.
She is getting along very well with her foster siblings and will instigate play easily. She happily will lay on her bed and chew on a toy for quite a long time.
Paula had palate surgery and is doing very well in her recovery. She loves her canned food and will gobble it up right away. We haven’t checked on how well she does on a leash just yet. We want to give her time to heal.
A home without small kids would be best for her because life as a pet is pretty overwhelming for her. Stayed tuned for Paula’s progress!
