Whitney's Story as told by Puddles

We wants to thank Minna Krebs fur hosting da adoption stories! We has been reading all da stories and they has been so wonderful.
And you may needs a potty break and maybes a beer to go withs dis LOOOOOOONG story!

Hellos ya’ll, it’s me Puddles! Yep, today is Whitney’s story but I is gonna tell her story cuz her is shy and stuffs and don’t really likes to be in da limelight. So who could be betters to tell her story other than me? Dats right, ME! Okays, lets get on withs da show….

In August of 2009 mum was goofin’ off on da computer lookin’ at dachshunds from various breeders like her was really gonna get another dog or sumptin. Well hers spotted a little female long hair dat was being retired from theirs breeding program…and thought hers looked quite similar to brudder Albert so hers clicked on da pedigree and low and behold her and brudder had da same pawrents! Then hers rushed upstairs to gets Albert’s papers to make sures they really had da same pawrents and they did indeed match.

Okays, mum really wasn’t wanting another doggie BUT when hers knew Whitney and Albert was brudder and sissy things changed and her just hads to have her come live with us not even bothering to ask me. So her goes to dad and says “ Oh honey, have I told you that I love you today?” and then he says “What do you want?” and then her tells him bouts Whitney and than he was all like NO. So mum hads to explain to him dat her was Albert’s sister and we owed it to her and brudder to brings them back together and dat da possibility of hers bein’ adopted out at 8 years old was slim to none. So withs alot of hesitance dad agreed to let Whitney come HOME.

Mum called da Mr. Breeder Man to makes sure Whitney was still availables and of course hers duh! Mum and da little girl drove way out to pick sissy up and hers got lost again. Mum gots all of da paperwork and didn't bothers lookin' at it cuz her was already smitten withs sissy and wanted to get her home so they gots all her baggage and believe me, hers had plenty of baggage to bring.

Oh boy, what did mum get herself into? Da girl was skeered of everything, hers never been on a leash, obviously had nevers been petted, hers didn’t know how to play withs me OR toys! Hers didn’t even know how to go up and down steps…oh da horror. Did I mention hers wasn’t fond of ME or Albert…or of dad or da little hooman girl? She went through quite a lot her furst week home with us cuz her had to go in fur a dental and lost 6 teefs…then da next week mum found a mammary tumor and then hers had to have dat removed too. Hers all okie dokie nows though.

Lemme just say dat afters a year of sissy being with us hers has made some great progesses if I do say so. Her has began to walk on a leash though not as well as moi, her is learning hows to play and have fun; and her loves to be petted nows but, her still not gettin' in nobuddies lap; her also has started to gives mum kisses and lemme just say when dat happens mum gets all sappy and starts withs da leaky eyes. Ummmm, let's sees what else Whitney has accomplished....okay, dis ain't really a good thing but her is extremely protective of not approach mum while her back is turned and Whitney is around...not a good scenario but mum is trying to deal with dat.

*months later mum got out Whitney's paperwork and realized dat her did not haves da same birthdate as Albert...they still had da same parents but were not actually litter mates.
Okay, dats it fur sissy. Even though her has some issues we is very thankful her is with us and her is all safes and stuffs and we do love hers very much.

Me and sissy...her is da black blob beside me.

Okay, dats it fur sissy.
Even though her has some issues we is very thankful her is with us and her is all safes and stuffs and we do love hers very much.

Ummmmmmmm...and just in case ya'll missed MY story from yesterday you can go here to read it cuz you know you want to....hehehehe...I am os full of myself.

We wish everybuddy a wonderful Thanksgiving and we is so grateful to haves all of our bloggie furiends in our lives.

**Tomorrow I, Puddles will has my mum's Christmas list posted dat Frankie is hosting
I felt like Whitney was enuffs to read fur oneday.

Until next time....

Peace Out,
Puddles....and Whitney

That's a wonderful story about your sissy Puds... well told by you of course. Poor girl sure deserves a good home after all the breeding. My heart goes out to Whitney. I know she has probably spent most of her first 8 years in a crate... just breeding and breeding. Poor girl.

Be nice to your sissy ya... she's a beautiful one. Happy THanksgiving.. and we are thankful for your mom for saving Whitney. Even though she didn't look at papers properly... hehehe

Happy Thanksgiving Puddles, Albert Einstein and Whitney ++ Abigail too.

Mack said...

I know pretty Whitney is SO THANKFUL for her wonderful home and the chance to RELAX without babies! She is a beautiful girl,,,,like you Puddles!
Happy Turkey Day,

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Whitney you are sooooo very much lucky to be livin with a grrrreat family that even includes your very much own BROTHER Albert. How lucky that your mom was goofin off on the computer the very day you were mentioned.
Of course you had a lot to learn about butt I am sure that PUDDLES too that job super serious and just refused to quit it out until you learned what SHE wanted you to learn. I noticed that she has NOT taught you to sit on Peepers Laps... She always keeps the bestest stuffs fur herself. That is a grrrreat thingy and you should give Lap Sittin a try... no matter what Puddles says. I'm just sayin'.
Thank you fur having your story shared with us.
I know YOU are very much Thankful fur being in such a grrrreat place.
Happy Eat More Turkey Day pretty girrrrl.

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

Whitney sure had a tough start. Doggies are meant to be petted and loved. It's so lucky for her that your mom found her and that she has her and your girl and you and Albert and that your daddy is such a, I mean sweetie. It sounds like she's learning the joys of being a regular pet doggy in a very special family. I hope you all have just the best Thanksgiving ever!

lotsa licks, Lola

Mama and I have a soft spot for Whitney. We have some of the same issues - though I have never been very protective of mom. I am so happy she is starting to feel more comfortable. Please give her a big cuddle from me or ask your mom to do it if you don't want to, Puddles.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Your pal, Pip

Zona said...

You're such a good little sister to help Whitney adjust to the good life! Have you taught her how to get into the trash can yet?? I'm so glad she has all of you and that little by little she's adjusting. That's wonderful. And makes my mom leaky.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, gosh, Puddles. Every time my mom hears something abouts Whitney's story she gets all leaky eyed and stuff. I sure know how it feels to be real skeered of stuff like going up and down stairs. But most luckily, I was only a coupla years old when I got rescued. Not 8 like Whitney. She sure is brave and strong and she sure is lucky to haves your family to help her when she's feeling unsure abouts the world. It's the bestest feeling in the world to know that you gots family who's gonna keep you safe!

I hope you all are having the bestest Thanksgiving ever, Puddles! I am sure thankful that you're my furend and please gives your mom some nose kisses from me for havin' such a big HUGE heart!

I'm sure Whitney is happy to have a home and not be in a kennel all the time!! Glad she's finally starting to warm up to everyone!! Happy Thanksgiving!!

It's obvious that Whitney really needed your family and while she might not be the most outgoing doxie in your pack, she might be the most grateful to be there. It sounds like Mr. Breeder Man is not a very nice man, if you ask me. I bet Whitney couldn't pack her bags fast enough to leave with you all!

Mom says sometimes Whitney reminds her of my brother Hawk. It took him a long time to be friendly, too, but once Mom and Dad won his trust, he loved them very fiercely. He protected Mom and Treat, too.

I'd like to finish by saying that I think Whitney is beautiful and that I think there ought to be more pictures of her!


Pepsi Bum said...

Albert, you were such cutie pootie baby and your a hamdsome fella now.


Angel Junior, Orion and Sammy said...

Thank goodness your Mom adopted Whitney!!! We are quite horrified at how she was when she came to you. Breeding woofies should be treated better than that.

Corbin said...

I love the story about Whitney! You're such a great sister to her, Puddles! She's a wonderful dog and I just wish she could of had the wonderful life she has now all along!

KB said...

I love your story about your sister. I'm glad that she's come so far and has such a wonderful life with YOU and your family. She had a tough start but your mom saved her!

Levi said...

What a great story teller you are and Whitney has sych a nice story too. Thank goodness you have such a kind mamma to want her and bring her home. Even though they aren't litter mates, they are brudder and sister.
Hey...even though we don't have the same pawrents- can I be your brudder from anoder mudder?

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Whitney is a lucky girl, to have finally been rescued from such an unhappy beginning, and to have such a wonderful biographer residing right there in her own house. We don't think your mom mis-read Albert's papers; we think Whitney's guardian angel temporarily changed them, just like she led your mom to that website when Whitney's need was so great. What a wonderful story, and very well told, Puddles.

Minx! I need your help. You will need to drive the spaceship while I toss presents and pesky garden gnomes over the side. Or vice versa.

Bring the laundry basket. I'll bring the wine. (Goes better than beer with my red smoking jacket.)
