Arrival Story: A lady that my husband works with heard that Jam lost her battle with cancer this summer and told him about a friend of a friend who just moved up from Texas and had a bully that they were looking to find a good home for b/c their yard was too small and her hours at work had changed a didn't want to leave Libby home for 9 hours a day alone. We went and met them and I'm going to pick her up tomorrow after work.
Bio: I just found out that her AKC name is Lady Liberty Lafrey. Libby is a sweetheart. She comes from a great family. Her previous owners moved up from Texas where Matt stationed at an AFB before they moved to NY. When Cristy and Matt moved to upstate NY. Libby was expecting her first litter of pupppies. In March she gave birth to 12 puppies, naturally. Way to go girl!
I think the only time Libby's tail stops wagging is when she's sleeping. She just wants to close to you and have her belly rubbed.
One of the things that helped us decide to adopt Libby was Cristyr said that the white marking on her chest reminded her of an angel. After lossing Jam, that was all that I needed to hear, it was like a sign for me that she was going to be part of our family.
Thank you Matt for you brave service to our country and Cristy thank you for blessing our home with Liberty.
Forums Motto: You may rub my belly and feed me bread
Sleeping: Mom and dad say I can wake dad up out of a sound sleep with my snoring. I don't know what they are talking about, I don't hear anything. I like to chase things like flying things and squirrles in the yard.
OK I have a beef. Why does Freedom get to stay and play and I had to come back to the room? There was ALOT of dogs in there..... and, and I got excited and more excited.....ok maybe I was trying to be bossy.....a little......but they didn't have to take me out of the playroom. Man, that's not fair. I know mom is going to get a call from the lady that took me out. :o < But there were a lot of other dogs and some went nice to me either. :o < I'm going to tell mom it wasn't my fault. Man. (pout) :o < I'll have to try harder to be good tomorrow.
Mom came home yesterday with her eyes a little red. I over heard her talking to dad while I was chewing on a bone...so they thought. She told dad that she was on the internet and looking around on dogster and felt inspired to go to the City Animal Services site. She scrolled down and saw the cute little fuzzy face that looked like me. WHAT? ME? What was I doing in the pound? She said that she call my first mom, Cristy, and told her to go on and look and see if this was one of my puppies. Mom Cristy went on and looked and told mom that it looked like my fawn baby girl but she was going to call up the RAS and ask if she had a spot of blonde under my left eye. Mom Cristy called mom back and told her that "I'm almost positive that it's LIberty's puppy". So mom went to the Animal Services after work to see her and take some pictures. She told dad that it was so sad because she was dirty, skinny, and cowerd down when you put out your had to pet her and she had been over bred for a 2 yr. old. She didn't have enough to eat or drink and they didn't give her a good house to live in. THEY WENT AS FAR AS TO HITTING HER!!! MY PRETTY BABY GIRL!!!!! HOW DARE THEY PUT THEIR HANDS ON HER TO HARM HER AND THEN USE HER FOR THEIR MONEY MAKER!!!!!
Mom went on to tell dad that she loved laying next to the lady there and giving her kisses and having her belly rubbed. Dad wanted to know if they wanted credit, cash or charge to bring her home. I guess my baby girl needs some vet services to look at her neck with a lump on it and have her spayd. Some humans shouldn't be able to own fur babies.
OOOOOOHHHHH THAT MAKES ME SO MAD THAT THEY DID THAT TO MY SWEET LITTLE GIRL!!!!!!! Mom Cristy said that was one of her fears as it was mine. She thought she was doing the right thing when she sold her to that couple.
Woke up briefly around 7:15 a.m. and relocated on the bed with mom when dad left for the fire dept. and snoozed for an hour or so. Woke up and watched the last part of the dog show and some Good Dog U while mom got ready for our busy day.
Our first stop was to say Hi to Joey, he's my buddy at the garage. Mom wanted to get a disk of pictures that he took of me yesterday with his new birthday camera.
Then it was off to visit my first family before I came to live with my mom and dad now. It was great seeing mom Cris and the kids again. They are getting so big. They were so happy to see me especially mom Cris. She gave me kisses and hugs and belly rubs. She and mom were talking about my babies that I had 2 yrs. ago and how big they were and are getting. Mom Cris said that there are a few of them that live close by. We're going to see if maybe I can go see them or meet at the park and have a reunion with my "little" ones. Mom Cris said that one of my boys weighed 100 lbs. at 5 mos. old. WOW! that's my boy. Then mom Cris showed mom some pictures of me when I was a puppy like 7 wks old. Boy, was I a cutie. Then we took some more pictures on mom Cris' cell phone. I'm so glad that we all live so close to each other so I can visit my other family once in a while and see how they are doing. I got to see my dad Matt too before mom and I had to leave. Mom really liked hearng about what I was like when I was younger. What a lucky dog I am.
On the way home we stopped and got lunch and went to visit with Joe, Karen, Joey and "Flacko", that's what they call him b/c his name is Joe too. I had to make the rounds around the back garage area to make sure that everything was safe and secure. Joey and Flacko were cleaning things up and moving things around. Joey likes his shop tidy. They repair fire trucks and ambulances.
After we left there we drove by dad's fire station to see if dad was finished with teaching his extrication class to the newbies. They had just brought the rescue truck back and cleaning it up when of course I had to go in and give the low down who was boss and that I had dad's back. They seem like a good group of guys. Mom knew one of them from working in the high school about 7-8 yrs. ago.
When mom and I got home I had dinner and watched little bit of Firehouse Dog. He was pretty talented dog. After that I was so tired I had to talke a nap. I was dreaming of doing some of those stunts like the dog did in the movie. When I woke up, mom asked who I was chasing. If she only knew.
Thank you mom Cris for letting me come live with my new mom and dad. I am happy and yes, spoiled but I'm loved too....ALOT. I just wish all pups and dogs were as luck as me to have two families that love me so much.
Well, I have to get my cookies and go to bed, I'm one pooped out puppy.
Wow, what a day.
