|Hi, it's me again, Chelsea Foster. I'm so happy to tell you that I have been adopted! Here's a picture of me and my new mom, Julia, right before we left to go to our house. I think I'm a very lucky girl to have such a nice mom. I loved my foster family and all the new things I experienced there, but I'm glad to have a home of my own now. So many people liked reading the story my foster mom wrote about me that I asked them to keep it here on the web site so people could learn about what happens to dogs in puppy mills and what can happen when they are rescued.|
The first five years of my life weren't that good, seeing how I spent 24 hours of every day in a wire cage, and having two litters of babies every year. Then, everything changed one day. Some nice people came and took me and my other Silky family members to a vet, who kept me till my foster mom came to pick me up to take me home with her. I had no clue what was going on. When she put me in a crate with this funny feeling thing she called a sherpa pad, to drive me in her car, I pushed it back, because I was only used to a hard surface. When she put me on the grass, I didn't know how to walk on it, since I had never been on it before. I picked up my legs and did some high stepping when I walked. I didn't even give my foster mom and dad eye contact, and did the swimming thing with my legs when they carried me.|
|They were very patient with me, and their other dogs taught me lots. I never said a word for a couple of months, but then, I found my voice and barked! Boy, was it fun! My mom laughed and laughed, just like the first time I wagged my tail and did a happy dance. It was fun too. I guess I never had anything to do the happy dance about before.
These are some of the things that I have learned since I have been living here:
When I first came to my foster home, I had been shaved down, and now, I've been groomed the way a Silky should be groomed and my foster mom says my coat is looking so beautiful, now that it' growing out. She says I have such a cute little face and pretty little ears, which I hold up very nicely. She thinks that I am adorable. I am still kind of shy, but I really want to be with people who are nice and try very hard to understand what I'm supposed to do. This living in a house with people is just all so new!
