Today Whitby's the Birthday Girl!

Postby reddog » Sun Mar 09, 2014 6:05 am

Today is Whitby’s 9th birthday and a cause to celebrate. \:D/ She’s been through some good times and some not so good and she’s come through all of these with flying colors. =D= I’d like to share some of her life story with you.

I rescued her roughly 2 1/2 years ago. Her original guardian got her when she was a puppy and loved, cherished, and doted on her during the short time she had her. Unfortunately her guardian passed away when Whitby was 4 years old. Whitby was then bounced between several relatives and states, living both inside and outside for a year or so. The guardian’s husband finally decided he wanted her back, even though he didn’t care for dogs. He kept her in a fenced-in back yard and interacted with her very little. A close friend of the guardian, Santa Paws - as I refer to her, talked with the husband and asked if it would be ok if she found her a good home to go to since he was planning to go back to Iran. He agreed and she posted here at cc.org. At that time I was searching for another chow since I'd lost my beloved Chloe earlier that year. She became the go-between for the husband and me. I never had any direct contact with him. Santa Paws went on vacation for a week or so and when she returned the husband was gone, his home was up for sale and no one knew where Whitby was. Fast forward - he’d dumped Whitby into an animal shelter and had left the country. A friend of Santa Paws happen to work at the shelter and mentioned about a red chow being there. Santa Paws checked the lead out, rescued Whitby and an 8 hour road trip was planned and set into motion. This trip took place in Dec. 2011 - hence the reason why I refer her as Santa Paws. Whitby was an early Christmas present to me from me. \:D/ \:D/

Whitby is a good companion and helps to fill the void left by my beloved Chloe who passed away 3 years ago at the ripe old age of 15. She is a great guard dog, especially since I live by myself, and is gentle as a lamp with my little granddaughter.

With all she’s been through since her initial guardian passed away, she really is a good dog, makes me laugh and is very well behaved - except when she see cats. :lol: There are times when I catch her looking at me and there is a look on her face as if to say “I’m a lucky dog and my mom loves me!” :)

Happy Birthday Baby Dog! Mom loves you bunches & bunches!!

She’s a keeper! =D= I’m looking forward to us spending many more years together. We’re both senior citizens and we seniors stick together. lol

Nancy & Siriol
I think you’re both right Whitby and I rescued each other and it was meant to be. \:D/



Whitby says “Thank You” and is sending all of you purple kisses for your birthday wishes to her.
