I would like to write about lil Miss Moon Beam Luna, she is a fabo, wonderful, beautiful three month old baby beagle!!! I like her just a tiny bit and she is not spoiled in the least either!!!! Just needed to get that out of the way!! She truly came when I so needed a lil puppy therapy, for sure!! She was not supposed to live here fur-ever, the deal was I was to potty train her, let her get a little older so she could be left with our daughter Melissa's other dog. Since "Moonie" as we call her is a sweetheart for sure!! Someone "gave" her to our daughter while she was staged at a fire station while on shift. This person told her Moonie was 2.5 months old. So Melissa brings us Moonie the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I took one look at her and said there is no way this puppy is 2.5 months old, Melissa insisted this was so, OK, NOT!!! So to say poor lil
Moonie had a very ruff start in life doesn't come close!! She was only 3.1 pounds after living with us for almost a week. This is when her first "round of illneees" began, she was so pitiful!! She began to get sick and sicker, off to the vet we went. Thanks to our fabo vet Moonie got all better. Only to get sick once again, this time not so bad. Then something got a hold of that poor tiny baby beagle and she was sick as can be, we spent many sleepless nights together. Many after hours calls from our fabo vet just checking in on us, you surely don't see that much in this day and time!! During her last illness, she was very sick and we wondered if she would make it. I did everything I knew to do to help her get better, the vet did everything she knew to do. We managed her lack of fluids with IV fluids "sub- qu" which is right under the skin, and it looks sort of odd, almost like "saddle bags" on each side, as well as regular IV's. We prayed hard and worked hard on this lil girl!! She was just pitiful, during a rather ruff night, I held her and rocked all wrapped up in her blanket and begged her to get better and prayed for her to get better. I made a promise to her at that very second, I said “Moonie" if you will pull through this and get better I promise I will give you the most fabo fur-ever home, please get better I need you. There is a reason you came into my life and you aren’t getting out this soon!!! After a few more ruff days, she finally got a lot better. We just recently were informed of her true birth date, which is November 1, 2011; she came to us on the 25th. That made her only 3.5 weeks old when she first came to our home!! The vet feels this could be the reason she was so sickly. We’ve been through scary medical stuff with our kids, ourselves and other pets and this was no different, just heart wrenchingly scary! She appears to be doing well at this time, she isn’t much of an eater but she sure does love to play!! Also I suppose you have figured out that Melissa isn’t getting her back!!!! No hate, she at least got to name her, you surely didn’t think I came up with such a hippie name, now did you?????! I feel as if I have to defend myself for this but, Melissa works like 900 jobs, she is either on shift for 12 or 24 hours and there are times it's even more like 36 to 48 hours. She has friends who go by and let her golden "Mikey" out to potty, feed him and a few even just take him to thier home. "Mikey" is the type of dog who does fine with or without you, he loves Melissa, but he does LOVE his chill time too!! "Moonie" I don't feel will ever be a dog who is OK with being along for long periods of time. So no hate, I did it for a good reason and really Melissa is fine with it, she sees her when she visits us and when we visit her, she only 1.5 hours from us. So my first post in forever, goes on forever, so enjoy lil Moonie's photos!!!
The photo on the left is two days after she moved in and the right photo is about two weeks or so ago!!! A bit different in appearance???? Have a fabo Friday!!!! I'm too lazy to proof this for typos and the like so.......such is life at times!!!!
