Well I thought I would make a thread talking about myself because not many people know me.
My name is Monica Valdez and I am 13 years old. I love animals, mainly dogs and hope to one day become a veterinarian. I live in a small town in south Texas where we only have one season... summer. Just kidding but it does stay pretty hot down here mostly all year.
As you know, I have three dogs, Molly, Astra, and Prince.
Molly was my birthday present in 2nd grade. She is a 5 year old Golden Retriever. I had been wanting a dog so we looked for a good family dog and came across Golden Retrievers. We looked for Goldens in our shelters but had no luck, so we started looking for breeders in our area. The closest one we found was in Corpus Christi. We drove up there to pick her out. It was a tough decision between her and her sister. When we finally picked Molly, we picked her up and her sister started crying. So we bent down with Molly and they gave each other a kiss. Molly is a wonderful dog; very loving, sweet, and gentle.
Astra was my mom's anniversary present. We had wanted a dog to keep Molly company while we were away at school and work, so we started looking in shelters. We saw a female, pure white husky available for adoption. We wanted her really bad, but we decided to do some more research on Huskies before getting one. A few days later we decided to adopt her, if she was still there. Sadly, someone adopted her before us, so our quest for a husky continued. After searching for quite a while we came across a breeder in San Antonio who had puppies available. We went to look at them and we fell in love with the runt of the litter, Astra. Astra is a very mischievous dog. She has a very stubborn atitude and likes to do things her way. She loves to woo at you in the morning and is very lazy during the day, but when we let her out to play, she zooms all around the backyard! She is such a silly girl.
Prince is a Chihuahua mix who is 6 years old. His story is kind of sad. A lady bought him thinking he had papers but when she found out he didn't, sold him saying he did(liar ). Another lady bought him thinking he did have papers and when she found out he didn't also sold him. We found him in the classifieds. We called the lady and asked if he was still available. She said that another family had called and wanted him but had to get some groceries first. She said it was 'first come, first serve'. He was 1yr old when we got him. When we went to the lady's house, we saw Prince in a chicken house type thing, in the backyard. He was in a kennel with cement along with his feces on the ground next to him. We had to save him. Now he is scared of flies, fire-crackers, and lightning because of his continuous nights outside. We still love him dearly and he is often spoiled rotten!!
Sorry for Astra and Prince's biography being so long. They had an interesting way of finding us
Well that is a little about me.
