Words from Walter: Hi, folks! You haven’t heard much from me, but it’s about time I spoke up and told you my story, since not much was known when I was taken in. Two weeks ago, people thought I was a Chinese crested mix, because I had such little hair on my back and weird black freckles. Actually, I found out I’m a shih tzu (I hear that’s a good thing to be). I lived in a house with people who fed me crappy food — it tasted bad and it made my hair fall out and my skin itch. Then my tummy hurt and I peed all the time in the house. They got really mad at me, but I couldn’t help myself! Instead of taking me to a doggy doctor, who could have helped me feel better and not pee all the time, someone put a knife to my throat and cut it. Then they dumped me and left me all alone on the street to die.

Don’t feel sad, though, because these nice rescue ladies saved me! Now I’m with my foster mom, Bonni, and I get wonderful healthy food, good oils for my skin, and pills to make me feel better. I’ve only been on them a few days, but already I don’t pee so much and my tummy doesn’t hurt all the time. I heard the doggy doctor say that I had a “leathery bladder,” whatever that is, because I was in pain with this infection for a long time. Hey, not being able to talk about what ails you really holds a guy back! I’m just 14 lbs. and will be looking for a new home with kind people to love me and take good care of me. I’m only a few years old, I love people and dogs and cats; oh, I don’t swim very well, but that’s a story for another day!
