    Introducing Dixie

    It is has been a long time since I have been a regular on PT, but many fond memories and many dear friends have been made here. We lost our Spot in March 2014 (at 13.5 years) , followed by Cincy in July 2015 (at 13.5 years) and Sadie in September 2015 (1 month shy of her 15th). We also added human children, Lauren in 2011 and Andrew in 2014, so division of time shifted.

    Losing all 3 of ours in 18 months was rough. It took us a little time, but we have now have added a new pup to the mix. We don't know much about Dixie's background. She is believed to be between 3 and 5 years old and ended up in a shelter in Detroit. They found her to be a very sweet dog, but could not properly care for her intense ear infections (so bad they questioned if she was deaf), so they reached out to a local rescue group for help. Dixie became a foster of the Lucas County Pit Crew, where she was spayed, infections were treated and she got to spend 6 weeks with a wonderful family that included 4 other dogs, 7 cats and various other small animals. She came to live with us December 31. Happy New Year to all!!

    We think it would be really fun to DNA test Dixie, but right now our best guess is Bassett Hound/Pit Bull. Or maybe some lab? some Dalmatian? What we do know is she is 100% Lovebug!! She has fit right in and is awesome with the kids. If she has 1 complaint here, it is probably that we don't let her sleep on Lauren's bed.

    Angel said she's VERY pleased another Pittie has found a Pet Talk refuge!

    Aww, welcome to a wonderful home Dixie!
    She is adorable! I love the picture sleeping in daddy's arms.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas
