Bubba's Love Story


You can’t imagine the relief and the gratitude we felt when we were told that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund would help.  We’d never heard of you.  But here you were about to save our boy.  We’ve never had anything like this happen before.  We all cried.  Thank you for keeping our family together!

A Letter from Bubba's Mom

For years, I’d wanted a chihuahua. My whole family has chihuahuas. I love chihuahuas. So when the call came from a breeder 7 months ago that they had one puppy left, our family stopped in the middle of our vacation and drove as quickly as was legal to meet that boy.

It was love at first sight! Not that I’m biased or anything but he was the cutest puppy ever! And he was just full of personality.

He still is! He starts our mornings by rubbing his face against mine & then biting my hair. When he finishes with me, he starts on my husband. When it’s time to go to sleep, he burrows under the blankets and stakes out his spot. He is the SUPREME cuddler. He’s always wrapped around somebody’s neck or cuddling in wherever he can make a spot. He and my 6 year old son are best buddies. If you find one, you’ll find the other. He’s even a hit with our Beagle. Blue. They’re always cuddling too. It’s as if Bubba joined our family to teach us all how to be really affectionate & stay connected.

But last week everything threatened to change. It was the middle of the night. It was pitch dark in our bedroom. Bubba is a black dog. He’s always under the covers with us. But for some reason that night he wasn’t. He was on the floor next to the bed. As soon as my husband stepped on him, we knew something was terribly wrong.

Our regular vet said his leg was badly broken & he’d need a surgeon to repair it. We’re raising two young boys and that’s an expense we didn’t have the resources for. Bubba is our child too. What were we going to do? We were all heartbroken. Were we going to have to put our puppy down over a broken leg?

You can’t imagine the relief and the gratitude we felt when we were told that Ellie’s Rainy Day Fund would help. We’d never heard of you. But here you were about to save our boy. We’ve never had anything like this happen before. We all cried. Thank you for keeping our family together!
