I can't play in the snow anymore, i can hardly walk. The osteoarthritis on my hind end make it impossible for me to stand on my paws and walk. The cold temperature will cause me more pain, I just don't want to experience more pain, so we better stay indoors.
Mommy is not enjoying the snow either. She is very worried, we must travel home by road and she does not drive on snowy roads, never has driven on this climate, but she is so determinated to take us all home. She has a map which downloaded online, we just have to follow the marked route as she tells me. It will be quite an experience, Clyo is a yellow lab about 80 lbs, I am a wolf dog over 50 lbs and mommy will have to make many stops along the way to help me empty my bladder because I can not longer do it by myself, and feed us.
Our trip is a long one, the road never traveled, but mommy is doing anything and everything to take us home, she does anything and everything to keep her promises, and she promised Clyo and I to take us home where we will meet our new canine brothers and sisters whom she has saved from the streets. I know mommy will take us home, I know for sure she will keep her promise again.
PLEASE .....HELP HER TAKE US HOME!
I have great news to share!
Mommy got me my wheelmovil! We received it yesterday, it was such a show to put the pieces and parts together but it is finally ready for me! Now I am going to be able to stand on my paws again and move around on my own. I just need to get familiar with and used to it, mommy can't help me get on the wheels by herself because I am a little heavier now, I am also a big boy, but our good neighbour will help, then I can start practicing and in no time I'll be on my way to the park!
Thank you all who helped with your donations to get me my wheelchair!
I know God will multiply in your wallet whatever amount you donated because you felt compassion
in your heart for me. Thank you, thank you so much!
I now have to get my health restored, we still need help on that and we are counting on you, but thanks to the kindness in your heart, mommy has one less worry in her life, and I have 2 extra wheelpaws to help me walk again!! THANK YOU!!!
Wow! My life has changed so very much and so has my mom's life. As she has told people, our lives together have faced challenges and changes, and so many happy and interesting moments as well.
I'm getting stronger each day that goes by, mommy makes this delicious meals for me... and makes sure I eat it all! Sometimes I just don't want to eat, I am hungry but eating while I am on my tummy is not such a
pleasant nor a comfortable thing for me, much less having to lay on a full tummy because I can not longer walk.
But I'm gaining my weight back and that makes mommy and me happy. She says I need to be strong to be able to walk on my wheelchair, or as she calls it, 'wheelmovil'.
She's been very busy emailing TV and radio stations to air my story and reach out to pet lovers to help me, she has also been contacting pet organizations to see if they can help in any way. I am sure something wonderful will happen because I am and have been such a good boy as mom tells me, and she has been such a good mommy to me as well. We just need to hang in there! You can help make it happen sooner by making your donation, you have seen my videos. Don't need to donate $100.00 dls,any amount will help us and it will make a difference!
I want to get well, I want to go to Mexico and meet my other brothers and sisters whom mom rescued while in Mexico taking care of my ill grandma, and money was not an issue. It's been so very long since last time I went outside and socialized with other doggies. We are a pack type, you know? It is so important for us to socialize and 'talk' to others of my kind, it also stimulates my brain!
I feel so sad looking at these walls that keep me prisoner. Mommy loves me, no doubt! But she can not fulfill my needs of living as to who I am.
Help me restore my health and to have my life back. You can also help by sharing this link with your friends on Facebook because I now also have my Facebook page! The sooner pet lovers come to my aid, the sooner I'll be back on my paws and enjoying my life and more life adventures with my mom!
Remember, 1 year in a canine's life is just about 7 years in a human's life. The road of life ahead of me gets shorter, however long that be....help me live it healthy and with dignity.
Today a Very Interesting Day
Today has been a very interesting day! Mommy looked through some pictures and found pictures of Ocean, a rare white German Shepperd that mom found behind a trash container in City of Commerce, Ca. Ocean was covered in a black oily stuff and dirt, fleas all over and so skiny that we could count his ribs. He did not have any manners at all, but he was so happy to have a roof over his head, a cozy home and a family who loved him. He was bathed before entering our home. Mommy was afraid Ocean brought fleas in and shared them with us. He was fed and slept the rest of the day, he looked so tired! I can imagine how hard his life had been on the streets, hungry, thirsty, cold and alone, most sadly, to know that many
people had seen him lost, abandoned, afraid but nobody had the kind heart to bring him to their home, it wasn't until mommy came into his path. The very next day he was taken to the vet to get his vaccines and dewormer. The landlord allowed 2 pets in his property, but let mommy keep Ocean ( as she named him )
until she found him a loving home.
Mommy is the Alpha figure in our pack and thought it was time for Ocean to learn some manners, and there he went through intense training. Mom knew nobody wanted to adopt a misbehaved doggy, and Ocean did his part, he graduated with an A+! The search of finding the right family for Ocean started. After talking and questioning lots of people who called about adopting him, he finally found this loving family who had a white Labrador named Tank. Yes! a white Labrador! Ocean faced his fear of going into the water and had learned how to swim. Such a great thing he did because his new family loves the outdoors, hiking, 'jeeping' and has a yatch! Ocean reminds me of the frog that became a prince! Mommy is so happy for him and so am I. We are not together anymore, but he is still my little brother, mommy says we'll go visit him as soon as time allows us. I'll be so happy to see him again, and hug him and play like we did before! I just hope that by the time this happens, I'll be healthy again, will have my wheelchair and be able to enjoy happy moments with Ocean!
I am so fortunate to have Cleo, my one and only in my life. She has a kind, compassionate and loving heart, so do I.
Mommy needs to go back home, I am so happy to hear her say that! I love my mommy, I missed her all the time she was gone to take care of my grandma. When I agaain heard her voice singing her funny love song for me, my heart pounded in happiness to realize she had not abandoned me. Seeing her at home again, is what brought me back to life when my paws were ready to cross over the rainbow bridge.
October 28th, 2012
Today has been another day, a new day. The sunlight came through the glass door, the day was so
Cleo, my one and only went outdoors for her daily walks at the park. I know she met with old and new friends and she had a happy day. She came to me after her last walk, kissed my face and whispered ' I love you' in my ear. I know she does because I love her too. Her beautiful shiny yellow coat has turned gray just like mine, but she looks as beautiful to me as the day we met and I fell in love with her...forever. We were meant for each other but I can not longer play with her because I am handicapped now, I can't even get up by myself to leave my bed and go to her side to give her a kiss, I miss her, I miss our times together.
When mom helps me walk to express my bladder, that's my oportunity to pass by my Cleo and kiss her and feel her warmth and be with her if it's only for a moment. Mommy's back is hurting and can't hold my
hinds for too long, she brings me back to my bed. I know how hard this is for her, it is a physical challenge because of her cervical and lumbar spine injuries. I wish I had my wheelchair so that mommy wouldn't have to hold my rear when she's in pain.
I was treated for UTI recently, but it came back because I have not had the surgery I need to remove the bladder stones. Mommy can't pay again to treat my urinary track infection, I don't want to die! PLEASE HELP !
Thanks for visiting my Portos' website and give him a paw!
Your support and compassion means a lot to us.
Ever since I fell ill, mommy and I have faced very hard times together, but I am a warrior just like my mom, and don't give up, neither does she.
I must confess there are times when our hope to get the medical treatments I need goes up and down. I believe God has created human beings with such a special gift called Creativity, and this is a gift my mom puts her hands on quite often. I have seen her many times go down in dispair, feeling helpless and crying, but then again goes back up on her feet and tells me "I'm not giving up! And high up she goes. Then I think to myself 'I am going to get my wheels soon and will be able to go outside and smell the pine trees and will chase the squarrels again!'
I can hardly wait to hear my mommy tell me the great news! Then I could get my ultrasound done and then my surgery to be able to pee on my own! no more painful stones in my bladder! I will be able to leave messages to other doggies when I pee on the grass, and will have a social life again!
.... HELP ME GET MY LIFE BACK!
