How We Met?

Effie was a rescue. She is a pure breed that was sold and returned to the breeder because she had a seizure. She had a shunt outside of her liver and was only expected to live a few years. She became very frail but was so friendly and beautiful I couldn't say no. I adopted her a little over a year ago knowing she would eventually need surgery. I was able to medically manage her for a while and she seemed to be doing really well. Last Dec. she became very ill and had a major seizure. She spent 4 days in the hospital. I scheduled the surgery to have the shunt closed as soon as she was strong enough. She was operated on last month and has recovered perfectly. Now she should be able to live a full normal life as her liver starts to function normally.

Thank you Effie!

DC Pals, I want to thank you so much for all that you have done in giving me this wonderful honor! I apologize for the very belated thank-you, I wish I could have sent it out to you all a lot earlier! I was so excited to see myself as DOTM, what a dream come true! You are so wonderful, thank you for taking the time to leave me votes and stop by my page! I'm glad to be back home and settled with internet access! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend, and please bark on by soon! Your pal, Bixie

Come visit me, Bixie Theodore*Thank you dear furiends!*

Hi! My name is Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod and yes, I was named after the character in the Highland movies and TV series. I am a West Highland White Terrier, which is a breed that originated in Scotland and can be traced back to the time of King James I of England. I am running the month of March for the position of Dog of the Month (DOTM) and would appreciate it if you could stop by my page 18686 and vote for me daily or as often as you can. The dog with the most votes at the end of the month wins the contest. Now for a little bit about me: I am Sgt. At Arms and Park Manager of the Westie Club. Treasurer of the Terrier Club. A-Team Tug-O-War Master, a member of the Peace Team, DC Friendship Club, BPM and the DC Sports Club. I made DOTD on July 4,2008 and again on July 23, 2009. My nickname is SweetPea although dad sometimes calls me donkey like in the movie Shrek. My favorite games are tug-o-war and fetch, although I also like to play keep away. I am mom's constant companion and have learned to detect when mom's blood sugar is running low and alert her to the situation so that she can eat something right away. My theme this month is Irish Poetry with authentic poems. Today's song is The Girl I Love by John Boyle O' Reilly The girl I love is comely, straight, and tall, Down her white neck her auburn tresses fall; Her dress is neat, her carriage light and free - Here's a health to that charming maid, who'er she be! The rose's blush but fades beside her cheek, Her eyes are blue, her forehead pale and meek, Her lips like cherries on a summer tree - Here's a health to the charming maid, who'er she be! When I go to the field no youth can lighter bound, And I freely pay when the cheerful jug does round; The barrel is full, but its heart we soon shall see - Come, here's to that charming maid, who'er she be! Had I the wealth that props the Saxon's reign, Or the diamond crown that decks the King of Spain, I'd yield them all if she kindly smiled on me Here's a health to the maid I love, who'er she be! Five pounds of gold for each lock of her hair I'd pay, And five times five for my love one hour each day; Her voice is more sweet than the thrush on its own green tree - Then, my dear, may I drink a fond deep health to thee! I have enjoyed visiting your page and hope that we can become friends after the contest is over. I left a vote for you today. Duncan

Come visit me, Duncan *Gone 5/22 - 5/29*
