Forgotten Friends - Mixed Breed Rescue
GROW OLD WITH DOGS
When I am old... I will wear soft gray sweatshirts and a bandana over my silver hair... and I will spend my social security checks on wine and my dogs. I will sit in my house on my well-worn chair and listen to my dogs' breathing. I will sneak out in the middle of a warm summer night and take my dogs for a run, if my old bones will allow.... When people come to call, I will smile and nod as I show them my dogs...and talk of them and about them...the ones so beloved of the past and the ones so beloved of today....
I will still work hard cleaning after them, mopping and feeding them and whispering their names in a soft loving way. I will wear the gleaming sweat on my throat, like a jewel, and I will be an embarrassment to all... especially my family...who have not yet found the peace in being free to have dogs as your best friends....
These friends who always wait, at any hour, for your footfall... and eagerly jump to their feet out of a sound sleep, to greet you as if you are a God. With warm eyes full of adoring love and hope that you will always stay.....I'll hug their big strong necks....I'll kiss their dear sweet heads and whisper in their very special company....
I look in the mirror and see I am getting old.... This is the kind of person I am... and have always been. Loving dogs is easy; they are part of me. Please accept me for who I am. My dogs appreciate my presence in their lives; they love my presence in their lives...... When I am old this will be important to me; you will understand when you are old... if you have dogs to love too. Author Unknown

Sponsors needed for vet expenses.
GRAMMIE IS A FOREVER FRIEND... Our group has decided to keep Grammie as a "sanctuary" dog! We have worked diligently with our Vet and an Allergist to help her heal and gain comfort but she never gets totally better. This old girl is a doll and deserves a place where no matter what, nothing bad will ever happen as she continues into her golden years.
Grammie and her foster, would appreciate any donations for special foods, shampoos, medicines and medical follow ups! If you would like to donate toward Grammie's continued care, please click on her PAYPAL PAW
We love our Grammie, she has more personality in one little paw than most dogs have in all four! The thing with Grammie is that she will have a need for continuing lifetime care for her skin. Our Vets still have not been able to clear her up completely although they have certainly been trying. She has improved greatly since coming to us. She is a loving girl and it is what she deserves!! Grammie loves laps, car rides and sleeping curled up next to someone in bed. She appears house trained if let out on a regular basis. She does get yappy but is just trying to communicate, she is full of ideas.
SWEET SENIOR GRANDMA..... Our Grammie is a Pomeranian sweetie who has had a rough few years! She was a stray in a kill shelter and was rescued on her very last day. This girl was suffering with rotten teeth, fleas, a mammary infection, a foul smelling coat and very yeasty skin. Why would anyone let an animal suffer like that?
Grammie is current on her vaccinations, heartworm negative, microchipped and wormed.

NELSON IS A FOREVER FRIEND...... My name is Nelson, I am a very special and handsome Pomeranian! When I was rescued I was skinny, shaved to the skin, had rotten teeth which resulted in my jaw breaking. I needed surgery by a really nice doggie dentist named Dr. Capron. Lots of very kind people donated money to get me all fixed up. My coat is beautiful (full and shiny), I am a bit tubby now and I have the cutest grin!
Just when I thought I was ready for my forever home, my left knee cap started dislocating. It is very painful off and on. Many little dogs have this problem but mine needs surgery which may run as much as $1000.
