Bitsy Button Comes To Stay

Chelsea has a friend! She’s 12 years old and just look at her! Those eyes say it all. She was lost, collarless, shaking and afraid. My husband picked her up and brought her home. Off we went to our local vet for the microchip scan and a few tests. She was declared healthy and without a microchip!

So, how do I know she’s 12 years old? Her owner posted flyers around the neighborhood and we found one. It was very hard for me to call, because by this time I was in dog LOVE. I did the right thing and called. Guess how it turned out…she’s mine to keep! A 12 year old, wonderful little Fox Terrier. A gentle little soul if there ever was one!

Her owners came by to meet us and decided Bitsy had found a perfect home. They have 4 other dogs and knew Bitsy was happy here. So she’s ours! She’s not ready for the nursing home yet, and I’m sure she has lots of love left to give. She’s in for some dental work and a microchip in a few weeks and then she’ll be ready for the Terrier Olympics!

I can see I’ll be designing a quilt called Bitsy Button!

  • Beth - Awwwww!!!! What a little cutie! I’m sure she’s going to be spoiled rotten in no time at all. How nice of her owners to let you adopt her!ReplyCancel

  • Rabbit Stitchings - Bitsy is very cute! Things happen for a reason! No one could have dreamed up getting a furry friend that way, must have been meant to be :O)…ReplyCancel

  • Nan - You brought tears to my eyes with your story. How wonderful you gave this adorable little dog a wonderful home – I know she’s extremely grateful! I have an 18-1/2 year old dachshund, and he can’t really hear or see, but he sure does enjoy life! I know Bitsy will definitely enjoy her life with you and Chelsea.ReplyCancel

  • Becky - Oh, how lucky for Bitsy Button and you!! We have 5 rescued doggies and 3 rescued kitties and love them all. It’s wonderful that you took in an old gal but I can’t believe her original owners would just give her up after having her for such a long time….I would find it very difficult to do that. I’m so glad another lost little one has found a good home!ReplyCancel
