There I'm "Elijah" the Elderbull...
I'm a around a bout 10 year
old Pit Bull that's "Got ya Day" is on 08/26/2011.
Some of you may know what that is, and some of you
may not... So let me explain... A "Got ya Day"
is the day when dogs are picked either by a Forever
Family, or Rescue from a shelter and have a chance
to live... It's what we like to call our new birthday,
our "Got ya day"...
Yes, that's right... Yours
truly was an Elderbull sitting in a shelter, waiting
for... Boy I don't even want to think of what I was
waiting for to happen... I just remember it being
cold, people being sad and there just being so many
of us. I don't like to think about that though, because
on my Got ya Day, that's when my life started over.
You have to live looking every day ahead, not thinking
about what could have been, or how it hurt along the
way. Think about the smiles that you get to see when
your people wake up and get you pet you. The feel
of the sun on your furr when you sit outside on a
warm summer day...
It all happened so fast...
I remember waking up and the people walking by "So
sad", "One that old shouldn't be sitting
in a shelter" , "How do you let your dog
go when they are that old?", then some people
came and gave me hugs, kisses and put a leash around
me, I was in a car for quite some time, and then I
met my "Mom" for all intents and purposes.
Sense then, I've combined forces with her and the
Rescue who helped me get here to make people aware
of the Elderbull problem in shelters...
Without people like my "Mommy"
who is fostering me until I find a Forever mommy I
wouldn't even be here, and I can't even think about
that... Beyond that, without people who open their
forever lives for Edlerbulls like me to love we wouldn't
have forever homes at all. Could you imagine a world
without rescued Elderbulls? What a boring place that
would be.! Pups can't keep up with me, plus I don't
cause half of the problems they do, just remember
Mr Elijah had surgery today...He had a few of his
skin tumors removed, neutered and they had to do a
whole scrotal ablation due to having a little bump
on them too...All and all he is feeling well after
surgery (He has to wear a "Happy Hat" )
because he wants to lick at his sutures but he is
recovering fine!A few more visits to the Dr, and he
should be able to start looking for his forever home
and start his Therapy dog training!
