Jackie's New Beginnings

Dear Pet Pro Life,

Hi! My name is Jackie. I think I'm partly Australian Kelpie. When my sister and I were only about six weeks old someone dumped us in the desert near Indio. We were dying from thirst, hunger and the heat, but a nice couple from Huntington Beach found us, took us home and nursed us back to health. They already had two dogs of their own, so they couldn't keep both my sister and me.

When I was about eight months old, they decided to put me up for adoption at Pet Pro Life's adoption clinic in Fountain Valley. That's where I met my new "Mom" and "Dad" (that's them in the picture with me). They actually came in to pick up another dog to take home to "foster." But my new Mom fell in love with me right away, and although I acted pretty shy, they adopted me and took me home. They were really nice to me. They gave me lots of attention and they even let me sleep on a blanket in their bedroom.

They goofed up the following day though. They went to church and left me all alone in the house. I was frantic, not knowing if they would ever come back or not. I made a mess on the living room carpet. Then I accidentally locked myself in the bathroom and I almost tore the door apart trying to get out. I've lived here about a year now, and Mom and Dad have helped me get used to being alone by gradually building up from about fifteen minutes to over two hours.

I really love it here. My Mom and Dad play with me a lot--which I love. My Dad and I take a two-and-a-half-mile walk every morning. We have a lot of fun together.

The couple who rescued me gave me a happy ending after my horrible abandonment in the desert, and my Mom and Dad have given me a new beginning in a loving home.

Your friend,
