My little BYB mama dog Chihuahua, Peaches, has found a home--with a retired couple from Missouri who winter around the "warmer" South in their motor home (I saw on the weather forecast that it was snowing in Kerrville, their next motor home stop!). Peaches' new Mom has sent along several email updates, and I'm pleased to report that Peaches has learned to walk on a leash to do her potty business, and she is quickly transferring her bond to her new people. Peaches even has a doggy buddy to boss around (Queen Bee dog that she is), a sweet-natured puppy mill rescue Japanese Chin named "Cappie." Peaches new family has always had "second-hand dogs" and Peaches has big paws to fill--they recently lost their beloved "Chula," another puppy mill Chihuahua mama dog. Peaches' new mom told me that she believes her dear Chula was nudging her from Dog Heaven to visit the particular PetsMart where I was doing an off-site with Peaches.
I'll miss my sweet love bug Peaches, but I'm sure I'll be getting regular updates! As my daughter says, now it's time for me to go get another "new best friend."
I have been making art my entire life and I have been involved in animal rescue since 2001. I have a son at Texas Tech, a daughter in high school and I have two rescue dogs of my own, a scrapbook of my favorite fosters, and enough junk and art supplies to open my own shop.
