More Mama

Crazy Mama.  That was her name, either from where she was fighting or from the people who rescued her in Biloxi.  You can see the scars, although Megan said some of them are just scabs and will hopefully fade when they heal.  She’s very curious.  Megan told me when she opened the fridge and then closed it, Mama went up and looked at it. She’s probably never been in a house before, so everything will be new to her. When the people who brought her the last lap left, she went and sat by the door, facing it, evidently thinking (hoping) they would come back.

Needless to say, she’s very emotionally needy and follows Megan around all the time.  Much like having a child!  I used to sing a little song to the girls when I would zip down to the basement to do laundry or something and didn’t want them to worry.  The song was “I’ll be right back, I’ll be right back” over and over to a little tune I made up.  Maybe Megan can sing that to Mama.

Being from the south, Mama maybe less than thrilled about going outside in the cold, although today’s high was a balmy day in the low 40’s.  Wednesday there’s a temperature drop in the forecast so until her new doggie coat arrives, the walks may be short.  But since she has heartworm issues, I don’t know how much she’s supposed to do yet anyway.  I can’t wait to see how cute she’ll look in her coat.  Janie had a coat that was too big and look hilarious when she went out but it certainly didn’t impede her long, rapid walks in conditions that ensured we’d be the only two out.

Mama will be safe, warm and loved now.  She’s a lucky girl!

    What a lovely girl. She is really blessed in having you to care and love her as she hopefully gets back her health again.

    • Right now, I haven’t even met her but I’m hearing all about her from Megan. Our situation isn’t right for having a dog full time but we can jump in and help short term, which is needed as well.
