Shelby Monday

Shelby Monday

When Foster Mom was giving me a bath yesterday, she kept saying something about my “Big Day.” I didn’t know what she meant, but when I got up this morning, I knew something was happening! 

A really nice family came to visit and said they were taking me home with them. They said their kids are grown up and their house feels empty. They have lots of time and energy to spend on me! Wow! That’s what I’ve been dreaming about…my very own furever family. 

And the good news doesn’t stop there, people! Bubba Gump Shrimp jumped right in the car with us and we set off down the road. What a great Big Day, indeed.

I always say we’re just one day away from the next rescue emergency. And it keeps ringing true. 

Last night, when Shelby Monday’s image made its way to social media, I felt sick. She was being given away for free, and a “Free Bulldog” post never ends well. 

After many attempts to contact the dog’s owner, I finally made it through Messenger. I pleaded with her not to give the dog away to just anyone.  

The owner was a sweet young lady who had really tried to help the dog, but was clearly in over her head. Shelby had been peeing blood for 4-6 weeks. 

I called Sheliah early and said, “PLEASE, can you go to Waco and pick up this Bulldog?” And it was game on. Sheliah picked up Rebecca and it turned into a road trip kind of day. 

Welcome, Shelby Monday, to rescue. You are going to love it here and you will get all the medical care you need. Together,  we are making a difference in the lives of these Bulldogs… one Bulldog at a time!

3/24/22 Update:  Thankfully, I got to spend some quality time with Dr. Larsen and she helped me with some of my skin issues. I’m still a little itchy, but goodness, it’s a whole lot better than it was! 

I am loving all of the attention I’m getting. My foster mom says I’m a sweetheart who loves to cuddle right in the middle of your lap. I also give awesome Bulldog kisses. 

Speaking of things I love… food is right there at the top of the list. Do not leave yours unattended or it will be gone in no time.  

I am working on where to potty, but since I had a pretty nasty bladder infection, they’re giving me a little break right now. 

I get along with all people and the other furry resident. I also like my crate. I know that may sound strange, but sometimes, I just go in there in the middle of the day for some quiet time. 

It won’t be long until all of my skin feels and looks great and I’ll be going through the approved applications to find my furever home!

4/5/22 Update:  I finally had those annoying staples taken out! I’m a really considerate girl, so I took out a couple by myself to help the doc. Foster Mom did not seem to appreciate my helpfulness! 

I’m excited because this means I now for a free pass for running, playing and finding my furever home. Foster Mom says it means bath time. 

I love playing with my fur sister and TV time with my foster family. I think I would love to find a home with a fur brother or sister, but would also be just fine getting all the attention. 

I went to a thing called a Bulldog Bonanza last week and loved ALL the people and dogs, big and little. 

Enjoy this beautiful sunshine! I know I will.
