Abandoned...No Longer!

This sweet little puppy was found by one of my theatre students in a Wal-Mart! She was left in the dog food isle! She was barely two weeks old. Who could do such a thing? My student didn't think twice, she scooped her up & took her home. Anyone stupid enough to bring such a puppy to the store with them (or worse, just dumping her there) doesn't deserve to get her back. I am of course sure she was deliberately abandoned, but what if she wasn't? What if she actually belonged to someone who cared about her? Well, they lost her & Joey found her! Now she is about 4 weeks old, still bottle feeding and sooooo cute!
 When Joey told me about her I immediately insisted that she bring her to school where she can stay in my office & we can feed her on schedule as Joey attends classes all day. Her mom works so there had been a concern as to how she would be cared for during the day.
 I am soooo blessed to have a job that allows me to do this! I am thrilled that I get to be a part of something wonderful. OK, I'm not gonna lie, I am glad I don't have to keep her. Thank God for people like Joey who have such huge hearts that they can suddenly stop & alter their entire life to accommodate a tiny little furry creature!
 Needless to say, the days my son goes to work with me (his preschool is there) are a lot easier now that the puppy is there for him to love on. David is totally enamored with little Lady Belle and practically leaps out of bed at 6 am ready to go to school again!
 Joey Beth Gilbert: YOU ROCK! You are a great mommy to that little baby girl, & you are an example of love & respect to the whole world. There is so much selfish negative living on this planet but you have made the world one puppy happier! So, on behalf of all the animal lovers in the world who can't do what you are doing, I thank you!

OHHH! What an adorable puppy. It's ok. The person who abandoned it is best not the one to keep it, and look at that puppy sling. I think that's the new mommy. :)

Yep, she is the new mommy! You should see how the puppy lights up & plays when she comes in from class to check on her!

Such a sweet little pup I cannot believe someone would leave it like that.. so not right! Glad to hear the pup has a new loving home. The eyes kind of look like a chihuahua but it sure looks a whole heck of a lot like a Rottie pup too! Do we know the age of the pup it doesn't even look old enough to be weened from its momma.

That puppy is too cute!! Not sure how anyone could have just left that puppy there but since reading this post I know that there are still good people left out there!

Such a cute little puppy - and so sad that someone abandoned her or was so thoughtless to bring her to Walmart at only two weeks old. You seem to have wonderful students.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.
