Do you like my name?  I sure do!  Its pronounced um-ell-ee.


I don’t believe in living in the past, so all I will say is mine was not so good.  I try to forget and my rescuers don’t know, so that made it much easier for me to break free from it.  It all came to a head when I was surrendered to a shelter and needed lifesaving pyometra surgery.  That's enough about then…let me tell you about now.  I had surgery the day after I arrived at the shelter and a kind volunteer contacted some rescues because she didn’t want me coming back to the cold shelter floor.  I had a nice, warm bed  to sleep in at Pawsitively Pom Rescue before the day was over.


I was sore and painful when I got there.  They gave me good food, some water and meds, a big round comfy bed, and a cozy pen so I could rest peacefully.  They wanted to give me love, but I really didn’t know the meaning of the word.  When they approached and sat in my pen with me, I flashed my warning look.  I didn’t know these people…in fact, I didn’t really know people at all...let alone what a kind hand was.  So whatever the lady was offering, I wasn’t having it.  I spent the two weeks recuperating...watching…listening.  There were many other dogs in this rescue and they all seemed to love this lady.  But let me tell you, I did not!  I didn't know her...didn't trust her...and wasn't letting her or any dog get within a foot of me.  She was really persistent and I guess I’m too ladylike for my own bite as she wasn’t fazed by it one bit.  So the days passed and I watched all these dogs being petted and talked so sweetly to.  So I decided to give her a try, but I let her know quickly that her hand must not go below my head.  The next day, I realized how good a back scratch is.  From there, I realized love has no bounds.  For the next chapter of my life, I would like a home without kids.  I think I would actually like someone to call my very own.


I am about 8 years old they say and I like the number 8.  It is the symbol of harmony and balance...turn it sideways and it stands for infinity.  You give me harmony and balance and I will repay you with infinite love and affection.  I weigh about 13 pounds.  The doctors have given me vaccines, ensured I was free of parasites and diseases, and implanted a microchip.  Of course, I am spayed and I will have my teeth cleaned in the very near future.  I have completely housetrained.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE big, snuggly dog beds.  I also like those human beds too!  I’m not completely used to this awesome food I get, so stand back at feeding time….because I’m all over it!!  I’ve learned that other small dogs are not a threat and I can co-exist with them.  Who knows…maybe one day I will even play.  It’s all a new world for me and I’m ready for you to guide me through it.  Today, I have labeled myself a lover of love.  Pet me…talk to me…walk with me…and I will be your friend til the end!!  Be slow…be patient…be understanding…and I will give you complete unconditional love.  I have been rescued…now let me rescue you!!
