Meimie just lost her fourth home and is about to get a new name and a whole new life.Her new name is Melody, Mellie for short. I think she has a lilting song inside of her. Mellie is an 8-9 year old, unspayed pom, who was a less than successful breeder. She was only able to produce 2 single pups in two separate breedings over the years. She a 2 year history of undiagnosed coughing, a large abd. mass, very long nails, increased thirst and urination, and frequent urination in the house. None of these issues have yet been assessed by a vet so Melody will not ready for adoption until our vets have a chance to examine, assess and spay her.
What I see before me is the cutest little cross between a fuzzy egg and a chipmunk, she is adorable and she is lovely. She managing the transition here very well, and has captured the amorous interest of old man Saul (unneutered due to age on the advice of our vet). Melody will remain safely away from the fuzzy, friendly white giant until after her surgery when she is no longer be the least bit interesting to our wanna-be Cassanova.
Animals with histories of multiple homes and the resulting multiple losses, upsets me. It is staggeringly difficult for most animals to spend their lives forever safe in the arms of their one, true, and only family. this makes me sad. Hopefully we can help Mellie to find the absolutely, perfect home where she will be safe and loved forever.
