Raise The Woof

Dogs are simply amazing. They have become part of our family and an integral part of our society. Unfortunately, some people see dogs as property instead of a family member. Many people turn their heads to look away at the bad, but dog rescuers do not. My rescue world is filled with amazing people that I am proud to know. It is also filled with a ton of drama. Time to Raise the Woof and tell the stories that are long overdue.

Zoey was simply the most magical creature ever. All of her quirks and all of her issues taught us so much. She was one of my biggest mistakes, but certainly my favorite mistake.

We met her on the way to the dentist in 2005. On the way home from the dentist after convincing Schipp we had to have her, I put $850 on my credit card at Happiness is Pets and we took her home. She was 9 weeks old. There are so many mistakes we made in that one little paragraph, but I am not here to rehash those.

We lived on the 3rd floor and we were constantly carrying her up and down the steps to house break her. We were young and dumb thinking we could raise a puppy.

She quickly became my whole heart and her and Ralph were best friends. She fostered over 20 dogs with us and though she was not a fan of the bigger dogs, she was so patient as we helped others find their forevers.

She was dramatic and vocal and cuddly and she leaves a huge f-ing hole in our family. Every day she did something that made me laugh or smile and though she came from a shi**y pet store, she is one of the main reasons that I am in rescue.

I love you Zoom Zoom. I miss you so much. Our lives are forever changed. I wish we just had more time.

"There is so much (domestic abuse) survivors can get from their relationship with their pets, not only during their crisis but in the healing after they have managed to escape. It can really help them take control of their lives again and feel loved."
