Happy Birthday Freeway!! 10 years young and going strong....well, pretty strong anyway..A little gray perhaps, but hey, aren't we all?? This little doggy came to us as a rescue dog. As a puppy, she and 2 other siblings were driven all over our small town and dumped, each in a different spot, on the side of the road. Some kind hearted animal lovers picked them up and took them to a no-kill shelter called Happy Tails.
I had wanted a dog for so long, not having had one since I was a child. So one day my ever indulgent hubby & I went to Happy Tails to find the perfect doggy. There were so many abandoned animals there, it was truly heartbreaking. We settled on an adorable male cocker-for me...it was love at first sight. He was lovable and fun, about 2 years old. The previous owner had passed away and he needed love and attention.
At the time, my husband was out of town from Monday-Friday, only home on weekends. We picked up Pepper on a Saturday. I had a wonderful week with this darling doggy, walking and taking him for rides. It was so fun!! However, the next Friday when my hubby came home, Pickles wasn't very happy to see him...in fact, Pickles would have preferred that my husband didn't come home at all!! So....he bit him! We thought maybe he was just nervous having another person in the home. The next day, my husband noticed the back of the couch..."What's this?" Pickles had pottied on the couch in several places. Yikes!! Well, poor Pickles had to go! I cried..
Getting back to the birthday girl....the next weekend Happy Tails called and told us about Freeway. Well we hurried down there, and here was the cutest, tiniest puppy I had ever seen! Nervous, jumpy, full of play, got right in my lap....and conked out! So...we brought her home. She hadn't even eaten solid food yet!
My husband & I love this little girl! And here she is 10 years later...a bit more grumpy, hates her picture taken, not too fond of animals...because of course she thinks she is human (according to my hubby), wants to sleep on the bed..with a PILLOW, and believes that every night when I make dinner...I'm really cooking for her!
So Happy 70th ?? Birthday my Sweet Ol' Girl!! Live on in Good Health!!
