I AM FAMOUS NOW
I left home today. I didn't want to go, so I hid behind my mama and my 3 littermates that were left. I didn't like you. But one day they said I would be famous.
I wonder-is famous the same as fun and good times?
So you picked me up and carried me away, even though you were concerned about me hiding from you. I don't think you liked me.
My new home is far away. I am scared and afraid. My heart says, "BE BRAVE". My ancestors were. Did they go to "good homes", like mine?
I'm hungry because I can't eat too much because it will be bad for my bones. I can't bite or snap when the children are mean to me. I just run and play and pretend I am in a big green field with butterflies and robins and frogs. I can't understand why they kick me.
I am quiet but the man hits and says loud things. The lady doesn't feed me good things like I had with my mother. She just throws dry food on the ground, then goes away before I can come too close for touching and petting. Sometimes my food smells bad but I eat it
Today I had ten puppies. They are so wonderful and warm. Am I famous now?
I wish I could play with them, but they are so tiny. I am so young and playful that it is hard to lay here in this hole under the house nursing my puppies.
They are crying now. I am so hungry. I scratch and worry at my fur.
I wish someone would throw me some food. I am also very thirsty.
Now I have eight puppies. They got cold in the night and I could not make them warm again. They are gone. We are all very weak. Maybe if I take them all out on the porch, we could get some food?
Today they took us away. Someone grabbed my puppies. They cried and whimpered. We were put into a truck with boxes in it.
Are my babies famous now?
I hope so because I miss them. They are gone, and this new place smells of urine, fear and sickness.
Why am I here? I was beautiful and proud like my ancestors. Now I am hungry, dirty, in pain and unwanted. Maybe the worst is unwanted. No one came although I tried to be good.
Today someone came. They put a rope on me and led me to a room that was very clean and had a shiny table.
They put me on the table and someone held me and hugged me. It felt so good!! Then I felt tired and laid down in the arms of someone who cared.
I AM FAMOUS NOW. TODAY SOMEONE CARED.
