The Story of Me


Lilliana here! Thanks so much for all the nice comments! And yes I am 17 years old. But I didn't go to live with my peeps till I was 10! See my madre had just come back home after living in Oklahoma for 4 years. She wasn't working so her and cuzzin Katie were volunteering at the local SPCA. She saw me and the rest is history....almost. Mom called up the Chihuahua rescue group and then offered to foster me until I found my furrever home. Perspective Lilly parents would ask, "is she good with kids"?...Mom said NO..."Is she good with cats?"....NO...."Is she quiet?"...NO..."Is she healthy?".....NO..(I was heartworm positive at the time). You get the picture. So mom kept on fostering me...and saying NO! I was treated for my heartwormies and kennel cough and I got stronger. Well nobody has asked about me since and mom said what the heck, she's mine now!! Not much is really known about my earlier life except I used to live in an apartment complex and kept running away. Well one day my peeps never did come for me.....and here I stay!


I hope everybody has a wonderful, relaxing, blessed Thanksgiving Day. And here's your first turkey for today:

That is one turkey I will not mess with, thank you very much.

Miss Lilly found the right home for sure. Gosh she is ancient, huh? Still spunky, though.

Hi Lilly! I'm just NOW getting around to reading your story. Can you believes it? Anyway, I luved it. And I think you were very wise to keep running away from that old place you lived so that you could end up in your Most Pawfect Home That Ever Was!

Wiggles & Wags,
Mayzie

PeeS. You're a pawfect example of why dad won't let mom do the fostering thing.

Roni said...

That is pretty amazing. I just hope my rabbits can also last that long or longer. According to my reading rabbits only last for 12 years max and such a pain to think that you have that short deal. Anyway, that is also one reason why I always fill their rabbit hutches with lots of treats to make them live their lives fun all the time.
