My Little Pride and Joy
For months I had considered adopting another purebred Pomeranian to add to my to my family and bring tons of joy. I checked the purebred puppies on Washington Pomeranian Breeders every day as new puppies were added including pictures. I looked at many puppies, some were orange, some crème, black, chocolate and some were blue. I saw many cute puppies and was charmed by each of them. I wanted to bring them all home. Then I saw the puppy of my dreams. She was so cute and alert and she had the cutest smile on her little face that said “take me home!” I was smitten at once and knew this was the one puppy I had been searching for. Blue merle parti-colored she was with a little black nose and long white legs. Her ears are black and the color blends in with her blue markings on her head.

Although my family had talked about getting another dog I never actually thought we were really going to. A couple days before we went to Lamancha, my parents had to fill out an application online for permission to adopt a dog from them.

In 2008, I spent the summer with my Uncle, Aunt and 2 cousins in Missouri. They picked me up at the airport, and the car ride was filled with discussion about a puppy they had just gotten 2 days prior. It was explained that my cousins wanted a dog since their friends’ family had gotten a dog recently. My Uncle, happy to oblige, stopped at a neighbor’s house one day, who was giving away puppies they could not care for, as is common in small town America. He picked out the cutest one and went on his way. The family was so happy to have “Roxy” in their home and on their farm.

I was sitting in our kitchen, about to eat, when my aunt went it. I ran over to her, happy to see her, and in her hands was a small, black and brown chihuahua. My aunt told me he weighed one pound. Of course, I immediately held him. I couldn’t resist. He was such a cutie! With pointy ears, big black eyes, and a small nose, he was the center of attention at our house. The puppy didn’t have a name yet, so we tossed around a few names. None of them were a good name for the pup.
At this point I had never seen a puppy, well I should say never owned one. Belle and Grace our dogs were messing around and play fighting like they usually did. As I grew closer to Earth I noticed I live in a small world and need to get out in the open.
Weeks passed by which seemed more like month. Week after week I went and played with the retriever puppies, it was amazing how they were so many different colors ranging form a light rusty red to a super light tan. I was in love with the little light tan girl. Each time I visited I watched and studied how they interacted; did they bark, bite, sleep, fight. This was very important to me to judge whether or not this puppy at only two then three, four, five, six, seven and then finally eight weeks old could potential make the difference in my future.
Sometimes in the world of raising dogs for the show circuit events, do not always turn as expected. on April 22, 2007 in Buffalo New York a litter of Sheltie puppies was born.

Several people who came to purchase a possible dog for show looked at the small pup but, they all said right away,"she is pretty but she is just too small". However, a young handler said, "I will take a chance on her". Amazingly
Did you know that about 3.2 million pets (of which 1.6 million are dogs) are adopted each year? Also, 1.5 million pets end up being euthanized, or put to sleep, each year, with about 670,000 dogs.

Due to puppy mills inhumane living conditions, mill owners keep many hidden secrets from outsiders. New laws need to be put in place to prevent the inhumane treatment such as poor living conditions, abuse, and health issues that dogs in puppy mills are forced to encounter.

This time, I was completly fine with my parents making a decision for me; now this was the best surprise. So a week later, I convinced my parents to visit the nearest dog shelter. As we entered, we saw about 20 enclosure each containing a dog. None of the dogs looked or sounded alike; some were fluffy, spotted, tiny, or even bigger than me. We walked down the hall of dogs and I spotted a furious, little puppy. I read the card on the front of the gate and found that this adorable dog was a poodle and his name was Gucci; the dog was also only a year and two months. But the most interesting part about the small puppy was not on his information card. Instead, it was on his front left leg; his leg was encased in a bright red cast, so he was healing from a broken leg. Soon after, my parents and I realized that Gucci was healing from something much worse than a broken leg.
