JUNE 2013 ATDR ADOPTIONS

QUOTE OF THE DAY:


The final count is in for June. There were 18 adoptions in all 
but one pup was returned. Something stupid, like they didn't know
puppies were such hard work. That's a bunch of crap, but
let's not get the Mommy started so here you go.

June saw a whole lot of puppies and longhairs adopted, including my new sister Prissy. Make sure you take a close look at the pictures. Some of them have two things in common. This is to test your observation skills and to donate $ 25.00 to our pal Benny
fight the evil C monster. Whoever guess correct get the green
papers donated in their name.



 Mommy cried when she read Allie's story. She was found 
just like me. Here's her bio in her own words.
 
Description:
I'm Allie!  I am between 1-2 years old and I am quite a sweet little friend.
I was rescued in a rainstorm on a highway in Houston in mid-July.  I am safe and
sound now and ready to be adopted.  I am spayed and vaccinated (yay for me!). 
I have finished my heartworm treatment and am ready for a forever home.
I am still working on going out to pottie but will use pee pads in the house.
I love people and one of my most favorite things is to curl up in your lap and lay
my head down.  I am very loyal and I love to play but if you want me to cuddle,
I can do that all day long! I get along well with other dogs and people.
Hope you will adopt me - I would love a happy home!

Yes, Prissy is considered a senior but you'd never know it by
looking at her videos. Mommy wants to share a poem about 
seniors that she read when she thought about adopting Weenie,
he was 9 years old then. She thought about it again when
she adopted Prissy.

 One By One

One by one, they pass by my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past his time, he can't run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way.
A little old man, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.
Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted away.
When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw thru the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.
You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.
I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear person, as long as I live.
I may be with you for a week, or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve.
And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.


Mommy is crying right now so lets go on..........

 

















Mommy's heart skipped a beat when she saw Toby's 
picture. He looks just like my brother Toby did when he was
a little fella.


Well there you have it. Not too bad I'd say.

PS...........Remember you might could get $25.00 green
papers donated in your name of you can figure out 
what's the 2 things in common in some of the pictures.

Oh my, 17 is a LOT of doxies! My mama does some web stuffs for Almost Home Dachshund Rescue and I wants to send you a big slurpy kiss for all of ATDR's hard works. I also was adopted as senior and it truly is one of the most amazing things. In fact Mama was at AHDR adoption fair today (we gots homes for four of those doxies today!), and she wanted to take home a senior gentleman of a robust 17 years old. And maybe she still will.... anyways, I's sooooo glad all of those Texas doxies has finded new homes!

love,
Reuben

Just HOW is Mommy supposed to guess when she's crying so hard after reading that AMAZING and very TOUCHING poem!

We say YEAH to all the pupper's who found their new forever homes! We love that there were so many again.

OK, we gotta take a guess on the Benny observation quiz.

Lily & Muffin's Top 10 List:
1. The pic's were all taken at the same location.

2. They are all really cute!

3. Mommy wants to take them all home.

4. Many are wearing blue colored collars.

5. They were adopted in the month of June.

6. They were adopted in the year 2013. (OK, that's really stretching it!)

7. 50% were long haired.

8. 50% were short haired.

9. They were all rescued.

10. They all have beautiful faces.

OK, we give up!! We just had to have some fun....

Hugs,
Lily Belle & Muffin

I can only come up with one thing in common for a few of them - their names end in a 'y'.
