My Life as a Dog - a Recycled Doggies COTM Story by TheBlueWindmill

My Life as a Dog
By Lily May Windmiller

I feel like I've had two lives. My first life (obviously) started when I was born through puppyhood until I was about two-years-old and that’s when my second life (my real life) started.

I don’t remember much about my first life, but I can tell you that I still have some fears that I somehow acquired during that time... like a fear of loud noises. I also lost most of my tail. I don’t know why it was docked. I know that a lot of boxers have their tails docked, but I am also part hound, so it doesn’t make much sense to me. Toward the end of my first life, I found myself on death row at an animal shelter. I was hungry, alone, scared, and underweight. Then a rescuer came. It was Recycled Doggies!!

Soon, I found myself with a foster mom who nursed me back to health. I was still really scared because of my previous experiences, and at first, I had to be carried outside to go potty; but overtime I got better and less scared. I stayed with my foster mom for a few months while I gained weight and was a little bit calmer, then I was put up for adoption. That is when my second life, what I call my real life, began. It wasn’t long before I was adopted into a loving family with a mom, dad, and two sisters.

Now I go on walks with my family, chase squirrels and chipmunks at the park, and play with my dog pal Miya, who lives down the street. I also spend time playing with my sisters, sleeping in my favorite comfy green chair, and resting on the couch. At night, I get a nice cushy bed to sleep on and share with my sisters. I get yummy snacks like cheese, doggie treats, and ice cubes. And I always get enough food and water.

Mom and Dad recently rescued another dog pal of mine named Ruby. She’s young and little and looks up to me. Sometimes, she is a little too rambunctious and nips at my legs, and occasionally I need to remind her who’s in charge, but most of the time she is good and we play a lot.  

So that’s my story... Life is good and for that I am grateful for my life as a dog !
