Hi everybuddy! Mayzie, Girl Reporter, here!
Today I have the most exciting opportunity to interview a very special guest. Everybuddy, I’d like you to meet Myra!
Myra, thanks for agreeing to come by my bloggie and be interviewed.
Thanks, Mayzie, for having me. Hello everyone out there!
Oh, look! Puddles is waving at you! HI PUDDLES! Now, ahem, let’s get down to business. I hear you’re looking for a forever home through the rescue that saved me – Second Chance Animal Rescue. Would you mind telling everybuddy a little bit about what life was like before you got rescued?
Sure. I…well…from what I understand, my story is a lot like yours. You see, the woman I was living with before didn’t want me living in her house. So I lived my whole life on a short chain in her back yard without any shelter. Well one day, I started feeling kind of bad and, well, it turns out I was pregnant and gave birth to 9 puppies.
NINE? Gosh, Myra. I bet you were skeered!
Oh, I was! And the woman I lived with was pretty mean to me. So, to tell you the truth, I grew up feeling scared a lot.
Oh dear, Myra, I’m so sorry about that. How did you finally gets rescued?
Well, the woman didn’t want my puppies and so she called Second Chance. They said that they would take my puppies on the condition that she allowed me to be spayed. The woman agreed but couldn’t be bothered to bring me to the rescue. So a kind neighbor lady offered to take us all in. Her name was Myra and that’s how I got my name! Anyway, the woman I lived with told them that she wanted me back, although I honestly don’t know why. I really don’t think she liked me much at all. So once the nice lady who runs the rescue…
My Angel Donna Fostermommy!
Yes, isn’t she wonderful? When she saw the terrible condition I was in – I was very skinny and absolutely terrified! – she decided there was no way I was going back to that other woman. And shortly after that, I moved in with my wonderful fostermom. That was very hard at first because I’d never lived in a house and everything in it was so new and frightening. Thankfully, she was so patient with me and she’s helped me feel safe and loved. But I’ve been there over a year now and I’d just love to find my forever home.
Over a year? Oh, yes, it is most certainly time to find your forever home, Myra! I sure hope we can help. Go ahead and tell me a little abouts yourself.
Well, I absolutely love other dogs! My dream home would be with at least one other dog who wanted to play. Running around with another dog is one of my favorite things in the world! I also love cats. The funny thing is that I was scared of them, too, at first. But now I think they’re wonderful and try to give them baths. Cats don’t like that.
I KNOW! I found out the SAME thing about mine! Kittehs are kinda weird. Anyway, go on. What else?
I just love to play and I get a huge kick out of chasing a frisbee. Oh! And my fostermom thinks I might have some pointer in me because I enjoy pointing out squirrels and birds when we’re on walks.
AND I hear you have a super terrific sense of humor! Go ahead! Tell us a joke!
Um, okay, well…a greyhound and a basset walk into a bar. Or was that a greyhound and a lab? Oh, gosh, I can’t remember. I’m not great at telling jokes but I’m pretty silly and my fostermom says I do something every day to make her laugh.
Oh, that’s a most wonderful trait to have for sure! So, Myra, before we go, why don’t you tell us what your pawfect home would be.
Well, first of all, I’m pretty fond of my crate because I’m still getting used to living in the human world and I would love for my new family to understand that about me and be patient with me. I’d love for them to have another dog about my size to play with – but that’s not an absolute necessity. If they’d take me for walks and toss the frisbee for me, that would be just great. And maybe they could teach me some fun things because I think learning new stuff is wonderful. But most of all…more than anything in the world, I just really want a family who will love me and take care of me and keep me safe always. I want to know that I’ll never have to be scared or cold or alone ever again. Gosh, Mayzie, that sounds like a lot. Do you think I’m asking for too much?
Oh, no, Myra. I think that’s what all of us want. And I sure hope you get it soon.
Thanks, everybuddy, for taking the time to read my interview with Myra. If you want to know more abouts her, please visit her Petfinder page (there’s even a MOVIE of her there – she’s practically a STAR!) or email Second Chance Rescue at delliott11 AT mindspring.com.
And even if you can’t adopt her, please use the Power of the Paw to help her find her Most Perfect Home That Ever Was. I know that’s part of what helped sweet Chloe find a home. And I bet it’ll help beautiful Myra find a home, too!
Happy, happy Friday, everybuddy! Mayzie, Girl Reporter, signing off!
