I do animal rescue and sometimes foster dogs for a local shelter. I got Missy the day after she was spayed and was to keep her until she was healed. Then I was to bring her to the offsite adoption center. The day arrived and she came down with kennel cough. So, the adoption would have to wait until she was well. This little pom/chi mix was so cute but was terrified of everyone. I am the only person she trusts. The day finally came that I had to take her to the adoption center. I drove there with dread. After we checked in, I was holding Missy and noticed that she was leaking urine so off to the vets we go. After many tests and much money, she is incontinent. Now who would want to adopt a dog that is scared of everyone and leaks urine? It has been a year now. I am still the only one she trusts even though I socialize her every chance I get. I even take her shopping to the hardware store. When I broke my leg, she was my constant companion. When I go to feed the horses or the potbelly pigs, she jumps on the golf cart to go with me. She goes everywhere with me, even the restroom. At bedtime, she has her bed and wears her diaper but she is worth the price. She is a constant companion and such a snuggle bug. It is hard that she doesn't trust anyone but this little dog has completely stolen my heart. She makes me laugh when she runs around the ranch in big circles or tries to help me garden. She is precious to me and has a forever home, my diaper dog.
