RIP SheShe (ShayShay)

Just heard this afternoon that SheShe, the mother of Maximus, has been put to sleep at the kennel because she wasn’t adopted.  So sad and so sad for all the other 4-legged babies that die in the shelters because of over-crowding.  She hit my heart especially hard though because without her we wouldn’t have Max.  And he’s such a good baby, even at 25 pounds and 11 weeks of age.  It’s hard to believe sometimes that he’s only a puppy because he’s as big as Bandit now, but this puppy wouldn’t exist if not for the mother who died from lack of love….no one (including us) adopted her because they didn’t care enough to make room for her.  Sad, but I can’t do a thing to help at this point.  Since I just went back to work I hadn’t been getting the daily notices from the shelter lately.  I didn’t know she was up for EU until it was all over.  She was only a year old and 52 pounds.  That’s a pound per week that she grew up.  She shouldn’t have even been bred yet, much less dead.  I wish I could save them all.  Don’t we all?

We also have gotten Jilly adopted by a family who loved her immediately, so that’s a happy ending we can hold close to our hearts.  Maybe that will help to make up for the sadness at losing SheShe.

Today we also got Mimi back.  Since Jilly is gone we had room for her again.  Ronnie and I talked about it last night wondering how she would be when she came home, if she would remember us or if we’d have to get bitten again while she adjusted again.  But she knew me immediately and came to me so excited and giving me kisses.  Gypsy’s not too happy to see her but to everyone else it’s as if she’s never been gone.  She’s been loving, quiet and gentle so far.  Hope it stays this way.  She will need a bath, however.  She definitely has that “smells like a dog” aroma about her.

Back to my doggie life……..
