My fur angel 😇 is named Gizmo. He is a 4 year old papillon who we rescued -adopt don’t shop! His name was Boris and his mom was Natasha when we adopted him at 3 months from Rescue Warriors out of Elgin. Kelsey was his foster mamma and we are still friends on social media.
Gizmo filled a void that no one else could, of no fault to them. You see I had lost my first fur baby, Minnie- a Pomeranian, months before we were blessed with Gizmo. She was my first angel 😇. She will always be. I still miss her dearly. She was with us for almost 17 years and still looked like a puppy. She was the best dog anyone could ever ask for. She was my baby. My ex husband made this comment when my first daughter was born; he said “you talk to our daughter like you talk to Minnie.” I said “of course, Minnie is my first baby and now I have my own.”
I take walks daily, or try to, because that’s what makes Gizmo happy. It makes me happy too. We buy him the treats he likes. He loves clothes, especially shirts -yes he actually likes clothes – it’s not torture to him, I promise. We play with him and encourage him and cuddle or take pictures and post tik toks. He is a HAM .. lol he LOVES the camera and pictures / videos – I made him that way.. ever since he was a puppy. He knows he is my baby and he will always be.
He is family and he would die for me. He may seem small but he will take you down if you try to hurt me or anyone that he loves, his pack, his family. We are truly blessed to have Gizmo and now his buddy Vienna, a dachshund . They are so cute when they play. Brothers from another mother. Best buds, pals, friends, frenemies.
Fur babies are the best, especially in times like these when you are alone and stuck in the house. They bring joy, a reason to live, for some. They need you and you need them. There are so many that are waiting to be adopted or even to just spend time with them at the shelter.
Donate if you are able or can’t have one or are allergic . Donate your time if you don’t have the money, that’s even more priceless and I’m sure your local shelter can use the help. I guarantee you that you will leave with a smile and sense of purpose, even if you already had one. Give back to those who can not give you anything in return.. actually that’s a lie.. they will give you everything in return.. they will give you their undying love and affection. What are you waiting for!?
