Allie

I guess God knows what a complete sucker I am. He outta know, he made me that way. But, really!!! You all remember the black kitten?

Ya, Honey is growing like a weed and getting into all of my stuff! Then we got Puff.

Puff


Puff was a very sick little kitty. He showed up on my friend's doorstep and she didn't feel like she could care for him so she called me. He died the next day after we got him. We take comfort in knowing that little Puff had a family who loved him for his final day.

Now, this past Thursday morning, as we were getting ready to leave for my ex-father in law's funeral, a chihuahua mix puppy shows up in the yard and bounces around everyone. No owner in sight, we put her into the dog run until later. Later happens and I discover that she is blind. Yes, that is what I needed, a blind dog. To go with my deaf cat.

So, yes, we are keeping her. We have named her Allie. For the record, I am looking for her rightful owners, having asked all of the neighbors if they recognize her and posting on Craigslist in three counties. The neighbors think she was dumped. If my past experiences here in this town are any indication, I would say they are probably right.....

*Update* Allie isn't blind. She has a neurological disorder, possibly caused by a canine distemper illness. This disorder has affected her balance, her ability to walk normally and her ability to see. She does seem to have a lot of trouble focusing on things. Aside from her "disability", she is healthy. And CUTE!!!

Out of curiosity, who else out there has a "special needs" pet?
