I have never owned a dog. In fact, my parents always told me I was allergic to dogs! Naturally, having no reason to doubt this, I believed them!!
In August, a small, shaking scared Chihuahua was found huddled under a car on my street. She had been seen running across a busy street and throughout the neighborhood the entire day. She must have given up, in exhaustion, and was so scared so decided to take refuge under the car. I figured how much trouble could it be to find the ower of a cute, little 5 lb chihuahua? So, I volunteered to find her owner.
Well, after a diligent search on my part, her true owner was never found. My cats were quite anxious for me to find her owner! They had never interacted with dogs before. After thirty days the local shelter told me that i could turn her into them, rehome her, or decide to keep her, as her owner coud not be found. Well, by then i realised that not oly was i not allergic to dogs, but i really liked dogs! This was a shock to my family & friends, and me. I never KNEW or THOUGHT i liked dogs. I always fancied myself a cat person!
Now it is May, and the cats & I, we have FOUR RESCUED CHI's!!! Princesss Trixie, my first one, Amaya, from the local Kill Shelter, Annie from a family losing their home, and Chiquita Lena from a Rescue.
I had no idea what a life changing experience this would be. I can't imagie my life without my rescued Chi's.
Needless to say, I am NOT ALLERGIC TO DOGS! My cats however, insist that they are!
