Whinnie's Love Story
A cold sadness overcame us and our hearts we thought couldn't possibly break anymore were then shattered. Just then our wonderful angel of a vet came in and let us know about Ellie's Rainy Day Fund. I am so thankful. Otherwise we would have lost a family member that we have had for only 6 months but yet has transcended our lives forever.
In Whinnie's Words...
I LOVE kids! The kids in my family are the best, but I cover every child I meet with kisses. They need it. Someone needs to help them feel secure and remind them they are special and they are adored.
Heck, I’m even named Whinnie for a sweet girl from the TV show The Wonder Years. Her combined with Winnie The Pooh. So of course I’m a kid magnet.
I’ve heard my Mom tell her friend that I’m especially good for my 15 yo brother. She said I “bring him out of his shell” and I’ve “taught him responsibility”. It sounded like those were happy things so I’m glad.
I take my job of family morale builder very seriously. If anyone is feeling down, I tug on their pant leg until they smile. My Mom has lots of stress and anxiety so I make sure to give her my fuzzy belly to stroke. My Dad? Well, I got him over the grieving from losing his last two canines when he looked into my baby blue eyes and decided to open up and give his heart again.
When my folks came to check me out after seeing me on Craig’s list, I immediately reached up and licked my Mom on the nose. I’m 7 months old now, not that 8 week old baby, but my favorite thing to do is still giving kisses.
My folks know that so I think that’s why they panicked when they came home and I didn’t greet them with kisses. I just layed there with what was left of those little pills around me. They looked like something new and interesting to try. How was I supposed to know that they would make me unable to contract my lungs, screw up my heart beat, mess up my blood pressure, and other awful stuff!
A note from Whinnie's family
Your supporters’ help means the world to us. We just faced one of the darkest days. Our puppy who has completed our family, filled our hearts with so much joy and brought us endless laughs and love, was nearly lost to us for good. While being watched by a family member she got into some medication. It was horrible and gut wrenching to see her in so much pain and distress. We found out we had to pay thousands of dollars to save her life or the only option was euthanasia. Our worlds crumbled at that moment. We knew we did not have the money, but we also knew we could not give up on her. She has filled our home with so much love, the wheels in our minds were turning thinking of everyone and everywhere we could possibly borrow from. Unfortunately, we couldn’t come up with any solutions. A cold sadness overcame us and our hearts we thought couldn't possibly break anymore were then shattered. Just then our wonderful angel of a vet came in and let us know about Ellie's Rainy Day Fund. I am so thankful. Otherwise we would have lost a family member that we have had for only 6 months but yet has transcended our lives forever.
