    KL, yes, the pups were a great source of diversion for me. In my siggy....Far left is Jodi, next is Jessie who came back to me and that is another story. Next is Bandit with one of my sons and far right their mother..Pretty Girl. Named before my FIL got her. I kidnapped her when I realised she was pregnant and I shortened her name to Pretty.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    The pups were 6 weeks old when I was diagnosed with cancer. I was always going to keep Jodi, Jessie was going to my father in Law. River and Bandit's home had fallen through. Originally it was just to be River but when I was saying I had to find a home for Bandit she said her son would love him. After that I was so very grateful. From then on though they could not be contacted, messages left etc and I was told after a while by a 3rd party that they had changed circumstances and could no longer take the pups.

    I was in no condition to try and find 2 homes so a few weeks later I went through Radar rescue. I was happy to keep them till a home was found.

    They were listed on pet rescue.
    For the next day or so I was so not wanting Bandit to go. Thought hubby would have a fit keeping 2 pups. I didn't even bother to discuss it with him.
    I told hubby that I would not be able to hand him over, I would be far too emotional and I would upset them and would he drive them over to Rescue.

    He said no.

    I was gutted. Said then fine, I would have to drive them...thanks a lot. I started to cry.

    He looked at me and said he would take River but not Bandit. That if Bandit would help me fight my cancer then he stays with us.
    Sniffff, > blows nose, she reaches for another tissue What a sad story for you, but a happy ending for the pups Hope your ok now...sniff!

One of the sadder ones was about one of our pups Maddie. I had given her a bath a day earlier and for some reason I didn't take her collar off when I did it. Anyway that day we were sitting out the front yard and I was trying to get her to walk up the stairs, she wouldn't go and I thought she was just being silly so pulled her up to the top (I was only young and stoopid lol) anyway when we got to the top I realised she couldn't actually move her back legs. Turns out that she has a paralysis tick under her collar that if I had of taken it off of her when I bathed her we would have found it. By the time we had discovered the tick it was too late, since we didn't have much money we couldn't take her to the vet so had to watch her suffer. The saddest thing was leaving for school on her last day knowing that was the last time I would see her alive.

    Another one, we had a Stafforshire Bull Terrier named Jarrah, he was a gorgeous but crazy little boy who would sleep on my bed every night with me. He went missing one day, we thought he must have been stolen. Some time later I was walking through our paddocks and could see something black in the distance, at first I didn't think anything of it but thought I should go and see if it is a kangaroo or something. It wasn't and turned out to be Jarrah. We aren't sure what killed him but there was a bitch on heat on the next property over so we thought he must have been going for a wonder. He was one of my favourite dogs I have owned.
    Sniff...R.I.P Maddie and Jarrah, thank you jadie.

Obviously i didn't know this because i was so young but it was like one minute everything was fine and then the next minute it wasn't and one day my step dad just chose to leave. So here was mum and i in a big brand new four bedroom house that they have built for us to be a family in with a caravan, big car, big shed. (Mum bought all these things because she had a pay out from injuring herself from work) After max left we couldn't afford to live there anymore. We had to get rid of pretty much everything. The house, the car, the caravan.... And unfortunately my pets. It happened so suddenly i didn't even know what was really going on. So mum took our two dogs and my two cats to Melbourne and put them in a shelter to find new homes. Leaving us with mum's cat because she was so timid and scared of everything. re homing her would of traumatized her. We ended up in a two bedroom unit with the cat. I still occasionally cry over having to have my Tiger (cat) rehomed. i slept with him every night and he was my baby. That all happened in 2005- start of 2006.
    Oh, I am so sorry that happened to you Kelpie, life sure does have a way of kicking us in the butt sometimes but we always find the strength to pick ourselves up again

    Sure does cavalier, it was so sudden and so sad. Espiecally having to loose 4 animals at once! But i have a new cat now, well not new he is four now. And he is the biggest snuggle cat ever. I have pictures of him in an album if you wonna see him. He is a pure bred australian mist. They have the most amazing temperments.
