Re: The Dog Thread: Our Furry Family and Friends
Sonnet was rescued from a puppy mill. She was pregnant when the rescue got her, and in their words, "just a little blob." She wouldn't move or react when people loved on her or talked sweet to her. She had 6 puppies and was a great little mama, and then they spayed her and put her up for adoption. At the time I was looking for my first dog. I wanted a shelter or rescue dog that was low-energy, and after months of looking, Sonnet seemed to fit the bill. She is awesome - I love her dearly. Since she came from a mill, I don't really know how old she is. We guessed about 3 when she was rescued, and I've had her 4.5 years now, so I guess at 7.5.
This is our small proof, not only that things can be done differently in this business, but that the greatest expression of rebellion is joy.
