Bambi are rescue girl is the oldest dog that I have ever had and I have had a bunch of dogs in my life time. Bambi came from the animal shelter here in town after 3 different people brought her there. As a 5 or 6 weeks old pup, she was left in and fenced holding pond right near the Shelter. They found a male who wanted her. He had her 2 weeks. Then 3 weeks later a lady wanted her. She had her less then 2 weeks and brought her back. The lady had, had her spayed
and bought her a crate. Then I came along and got her. She still had her stitches in her belly and they gave me her crate. The shelter is 28 miles away from home, so on the way home I could tell she had kennel cough. The vet could not see her that day, but next morning she was at the vets. He said she was days away from death from her kennel cough, he gave her a shot and pills and we went back 3 or 4 days later. Bambi was feeling a lot better. the follow up visit went well. Her stitches were taken out and he gave her a thumbs up!!!
That will be 12 years ago the 1st of February. I have never had a dog this long before!! I love it, she knows me so well and I know her so well. It is WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!
Happy holidays my blog friends!! We are having a great time. Tom has gone back to work today.
He plans on working 3 days this week and then a long week-end again. I hope that is the way it plays out!!!!
Big hugs, Bambi, Happy and Fern
