Baby Buckwheat: Heart
Baby Buckwheat was a Puppy Mill Broker reject because he
had an over bite. Closer inspection revealed that two lower teeth were impacted
causing his bottom jaw not to grow.
We corrected this with dental
surgery, but he will always have a bit of an over bite.
This baby was
scheduled to go to another family of fellow Small Pawsers, who had just taken in
a grieving orphan who had just lost her parents.
As the date grew closer
for us to send this baby, we got the following e-mail.

I'm the one who asked about adopting the
puppy for my "foster" daughter, Jennifer. Jennifer was going to be living with
us, but plans may be changing. She may have to move to Pennsylvania to be closer
to her biological brother. Anyway, after reading your last update and seeing
that our "mourner" may be leaving, it seems that others may benefit from the
love of this cutie-pie. I would love to have him but I don't want to be selfish.
Thanks for your updates. I love to read them. God bless you.
Mom to Cody, star of stage and screen (AKA:
I knew Pat was talking about
Ardys, at Buckwheeeeat@aol.comwho
was grieving for her baby, SPanKY. I
asked Pat if she was sure about this, and she answered back for me to offer this
baby to Ardys. She just knew this was the thing we should do.
I called Ardys and though it had
only been a few days since she lost Spanky, I gathered enough (gulp) courage to
tell her about this new baby boy.
Ardys told me she would
agree to see pictures. (Very good sign! HAHA!) She told me she did not want and
could not think of getting another dog, (especially a puppy) for a long time,
but that when she could, she promised it would be a RESCUE...and the more
imperfect the better!
And now that Zena, Warrier Princess has cast the
deciding vote for adopting him...Well, now you may all congratulate Ardys,
because she has officially adopted "Baby Buckwheat". This was her post on the
AOL Bichon Board about him!

hind legs and waved at him! I've learned the word "NO" and learned that it means
to stop what I'm doin unntillll Arrdys looks away, and I poop outside. And I
