My Chiweenie...Amazing Grace, Aka, Maizy...
Jan 28 2011, 7:12 PM ESTMaizy is a 7 lb. chiweenie that I rescued from a puppy mill that was shut down in another state, leaving 265 dogs in small crates in a dark, cold warehouse. Over 85 of the dogs had to be euthanized. I saw Maizy & new I had to make the 11 hr round trip to get her. I just wanted her to live her little life out in a safe place. I got more than I bargained for!! When I picked her up after a month of her recovering from her surgeries, (She had a broken jaw & was spayed), she was so tiny and shook all over. The foster mom said she spent the month behind the sofa. As I held her close to me, her whole body shook. I wrapped her in my coat & held her & attempted to comfort her. After 3 hours of driving we stopped to get a bite to eat. Maizy got her first taste of Chicken Mc Nuggets. I knew I was breaking through her fear already. Though we had a long way to go..getting used to people, a house, the outdoors, the car, noises, day light, a bowl, a bed, toys that she had never had, our other dogs, etc., she came further than we ever expected she would. After only one year, Maizy won first place for her tricks at a Humane Society fundraiser we attended in VT. Besides her mini agility course, she sits, lays down, gives me 5, turns around on "4 paws", turns around on "2 paws", rolls over, crawls, heels, stays, comes, & cutest of all, she will show you her "Praying Paws"! She's not only an adorable long-haired chiweenie, she is super smart! Every morning & every evening she presses her face to mine & just hugs me for the longest time, then gives me a little kiss. My goal was to change Maizy's life, & I feel I have reached that goal. However, I think Maizy has truly changed my life more. She has given me the most unconditional love, companionship, joy, & laughter anyone could give. We really cherish our little Maizy. I can't hide that she is my favorite of all. She loves us & we love her! Do you find this valuable?
