Mollie Jo's Gotcha Story
One day Momma got that "want a puppy" feeling and so she decided to call the Bobo's breeder to see if she had any litters. At that time she did not have any litters but mentioned that she had an older female that was spayed and needed a home. Momma wasn't sure of this and told her she would think about it. Well grandma said that they should "go look". You know how things go once they say that don't you? The very next night momma and grandma cam just to "look". While ther the breeder told them that I had trouble with my last litter and had to be spayed so I was "useless" (her term not mine). She also mentioned that I had already gone to another home and was brought back because their daughter had allergies to me. After hearing all of that momma knew she couldn't leave me there. So even though momma wasn't sure that this would work out (can you believe that) she took me home anyway. Here is the first ever picture of me.
At my first visit to the vet I weighed 7 pounds by the second visit (one week later) I weighed 8.8 pounds and have steadied my weight at 11 pounds and all of that weight gain was from 2 solid meals a day and a few treats. At my first vet visit I tested negative for heartworms and started taking heartworm prevenative. My nails were so long they were curling under so momma had the vet trim those down. My ears were badly infected and very red. The vet had to use 4 cotton swabs to get all the brown yuck out of each ear. I had to be on vet prescribed ear spray for 6 months to control the infection. Now my ears are clean and pretty!
