Hello! My name isJeterand I would love to meet you!
Hi. Jeter here. Grab a drink, a snack (popcorn sounds good) and a comfy chair. I want to tell you about my experience in rescue. Wow, to think just a few short months ago I was living down south, chained up in the back yard. Life has sure changed.
It all started when I escaped the chain and mouthed the guy that tried to take me back to the house with the chain. I didn’t know any better. Next thing I knew I was on a plane to Omaha bound for Taysia Blue Rescue. My foster mom does not like being mouthed either, so she taught me there are other ways to get attention. My nose works the best. I also can use my voice and sometimes my paw (note to self: do not paw mom’s face while she is sleeping).
There were some potty incidents. I couldn’t help it. Guess what? I had a UTI. All better now.
I also have another problem, this is what most likely led to me being banished to the yard and under socialized for my first 3 years. I regurgitate water (liquid). Honestly, who wants to deal with that? Not me. I was thirsty and never really got enough water. I went to the vet and there is no obvious reason for this. So, my foster mom had an idea. Maybe gelatin would work. And it does. She makes plain gelatin and cuts it into cubes and that is my version of water. Gelatin maintains to about 90 degrees so can be left in my water bowl. And I am so smart, that I rarely try to drink from the other dog’s water bowl.
I have some things to learn, but I am doing better all the time. I already know sit, sit pretty, shake, come.
I hear there is a Broadway show in town “Wicked” and you know that song FOR GOOD.
Well my version is…. Because I was rescued. I have been changed for good.
Got any popcorn left?
