Happy was abandoned at my vet's when she was about a month old. She was brought in sick and almost dying, and the original owner refused to pay for treatment and medication, and decided to abandon her there. My vet who was treating her asked me if I wanted to add another member to my family, and gave me a week to think about it.
I already had 3 dogs at the time, one of which was a sickly senior (the reason I'm at the vet's all the time), and I wasn't sure I had the time to care for a new puppy. My husband was also starting to get fed up with the rescues I keep on bringing home. I was already leaning towards declining.
It might have been fate, or merely a coincidence, but that week, I rescued a stray kitten. I was able to find an adopter for little kitty, and promised the adopter I would clear kitty at the vet's. So off to the vet I went again, which happened to be the week's deadline. I took another peek at Happy, and suddenly, it just felt right. I went home with a puppy and a kitten, crossing my fingers that all will be well.
Happy is now a healthy bundle of energy :) She gets along great with my other dogs, and keeps everyone in the house young. I am so glad I brought her home. (Kitty, now named Mickey, has a happy ever after too with her new fur-mommy!)
