I'm a Mommy!!!

I'm going to be a mommy.





To this little guy right here. Tricked you!!

My friend rescued this little puppy from a gas station. Here in Fayetteville people just drop their dogs off left and right. Not a day goes by that I don't see a stray dog running along the side of the road or worse dead. And because a lot of people don't take their dogs when they PCS(move to a different military installation) all of the shelter's are currently full.

J asked everyone she knew if they wanted this puppy. A couple of ours said they wanted him but their MIL said she refused to watch their kids if they had a dog. So Charlie (the puppy) returned back to J. Then another couple friend of ours said they wanted him. They kept him for 3 days and named him Indy. After the third day they said they changed their mind, that they didn't have time for a puppy. So Indy went back to J. No one we knew wanted a puppy and like I said the shelter's were full. Luckily my brother's girlfriend wants to take him. Because she lives in WI we now have to ship the dog to WI. Today I went out and spent $300 on a plane approved kennel, dog toys, food and all those other necessities. We also took him to the vet and discovered he has worms!! So gross! But what else could I do. This puppy is only ten weeks old and has already had a traumatic life. I am his 4th home so far and in a few days he will be boarding a plane heading to WI all by himself. I'm just glad we ended up finding him a home. He seriously is the cutest thing!

  9. Oh what a sweet puppy! Bless you for taking care of him! Are you getting sedatives for the plane ride for him too? It's really loud in the cargo area so I know vets usually recommend giving animals who fly something to make them sleepy.

    He's soooo cute!

  10. That is so true that people down here just dump their dogs off wherever! I have a friend who's picked up 3 dogs in 2 years that way. So glad he has a home now - he is just too cute. Any idea what he is?

  11. Aww poor little guy! I'm surprised you don't want to keep him! I know what you mean, a lot of people leave behind their dogs here as well though because the base is so far away it normally doesn't happen in town but in the surrounding areas. We think our dog might have belonged to a military family before we adopted her because she doesn't always like going on base. I'm so glad you found this guy a home. =]

  13. a month ago a friend found a stray cat in her yard. she lives in hope mills. and since our cat passed away a week after moving in (welcome to fort bragg) we decided to take her. i called the local vet and schedualed her to be de clawed and fixed. they could not get me in for 2 weeks. so i took her in and guess what she is pragnant. that was 2.5 weeks ago. we should have kittens any day now. if you hear of anyone who wants a kitten i will be desperate to give them away in about 6 weeks. i am only 20 minutes from bragg.
