Small Paws® Rescue: Buster, Missy, and 8 Puppies,
Meet "Buster", an eleven month old, neutered male bichon, who
is OBEDIENCE trained!! He will fly out, on Delta-Dash, to his NEW home, in
Florida..with Chipper's buddy JINGLEBELL, from, the AOL Bichon Brigade! Read
about his rescue, below! He weighs about 10 pounds, and is even housetrained! He
is MR. Personality! He sort of has a P**dle haircut, now..but when he has his
manly BICHON cut, he will be a STUNNER!! He is only about 8 inches high at the
shoulder.and makes Chipper, look like Wilt Chamberlain.
Bonnie, Fuzzy and Maggie Lint's mom, holds the babies. They
were born on Sunday, June 7. 1999. We will be LOOKING for WONDERFUL homes for
the babies, when they are 8-10 weeks old! Contact Bonnie, at
firstname.lastname@example.org, for more info!
Well, tonight something
wonderful happened, and to all of you, who emailed references about me, a few
weeks ago, thanks..and it paid off.
Tonight, a rescue buddy of mine,
Bonnie,(Fuzz and Maggie Lint's Mom) and I, took into rescue..an 11 month old
male neutered, housetrained, obedience trained ADORABLE bichon baby!!And .....a
13 month old female..with 8 puppies..that were born on Sunday. :( My OTHER
partner in Witchita, Susan, Harley's Mom, s helping us on this rescue
My breeding letter, finally got to the lady who had these
babies..She WAS what is known, as a Backyard Breeder..but NO more!!!!
Yipee!!..She KEPT her pet bichon, Penny, which was spayed yesterday.
Buster, the little male, was neutered, on Friday, and is asleep in his
pen, in our room, as I type. Missy, is nursing 4 day old babies. (EIGHT of
em...)The lady signed them over to us, legally, and all, and gave us a donation,
to help with their care. I have the male..or should I say, that CHIPPER has
him.!(They are Buds already.This dogs has ALL shots and is heartworm
NEGATIVE..WHEW!..LOL!!..)..and Bonnie is fostering the mom and 8 ANGEL puppies!!
(Lhasa Mom, I couldn't resist..) Hey Skeptic..I think it was YOUR reference
about me, that was the kicker..so thans, so very much..from ALL of these
I am shipping Buster out to a new home, via Delta Dash, to one
of Chipper's buddies, from the AOl Bichon Board....on Friday..Pics tomorro..I am
dead on my feet..We were there with her for 3 hours..she really has been
converted she said. She said she at first thought, that I was a radical
wacko..and now she knows..that I am..! HAHAH! AND..she is the same way now!! She
thought she would loose Missy last week..This poor dog is a small 13 month old
bichon..and had EIGHT babies!!! She called me in hysterics, saying Missy looked
like a watermelon and would NOT get up... I sent her for an ultrsound..to make
sure they were all alive..and the vet said in a week to ten days..they would be
born..NUH UH..They were born on Sunday!! Anyway I have spent several hours with
her..convincing her that his was the right thing to do..We both even prayed with
her. That breeding leter I wrote.., must have been inspired by God..Here it
is..for the newbies..Love,Robin
I originally wrote this for
someone else..but I think it might help you
Chipper's Mom, Robin, again.You had said, in a post to the board, that your baby
Bichon is 6 months old, and coming in season, and you were wanting to breed her.
I softly discouraged it, because of her tender young age.I got a very sweet note
from you asking, when I thought WAS the right time to breed her.Well, here goes,
and I want you to know, that I am writing this with all of the love, that I
have, in my heart, for both you and your precious baby bichon, Matte..
have a history of being a dog rescuer.I have rescued over 1000 in my lifetime,
and either found them all homes, or returned them to their frantic owners. On a
few occasions, I held them, in my arms, as they passed over to the Rainbow
Bridge, to severely injured to recover. On another few occasions, I have kept
them, and that may explain, why I have 5 dogs now!
I have seen the
despicable things, done in the puppy mills, to dogs, seen only as livestock,
with not a name, but only a number.
I have watched the vet, doing
surgery, on little females, who had so many litters, that their uteruses were
like jelly. I have seen females, who have had numerous c-sections, and by the
looks of the scars, probably on a kitchen table. Some people in the puppy mill
business, don't spend money for vets, much less anethesia.
I have been in
shelters, and have yet to have been in one, that wasn't over-crowded.
have looked into the eyes and soul, of a man, who daily, makes a choice WHO
lives and WHO dies, at the shelter. It is ususally decided, by how many days, a
furbaby has been there, usually three.
I have seen an incinerator..filled
to the brink..with unloved, unwanted, bodies..of dogs, that I am sure, when they
were young..were cute little puppies..that had owners. Owner's that never
dreamed , that THEIR puppy, would end up here. I am sure some of them must have
thought.."But I have a pure-breed..and I just want her to have ONE litter." I'm
sure that other's must have thought,"I only want my children to experience the
miracle of birth". But here is the truth.The cold, hard, honest truth.
Everyday, hundreds of thousands of dogs, and cats, kittens, and puppies,
are killed..for the simple fact, that no one wants them. I know that this may
upset some of the folks on this board..but the truth is..there ARE Bichons, just
like our sweet babies..that are put in with the rest of the unwanted dogs..and
euthinized..because no one wants them.
This would be my plea, to you.
Please, leave the breeding of the Bichons Frise, to reputatable breeders, who
know about things like backgrounds, and bloodlines. About genetics, and
inheritable diseases. Please..I beg you, with a humble and loving heart..please
have your sweet baby Matte, spayed...so that you will NOT be the one..to add any
MORE unwanted babies, to that incinerator, I just told you about.
in your mind, you may be thinking.."Oh I would NEVER sell, my puppies to anyone
but GOOD people".The problem is..let's say, that you have 5 puppies..and find
all of them homes. Six months pass..and we see on the AOL Bichon Board, someone
asking for a male..to breed with their female, because she is 6 months old, and
coming in season.Another 6 months goes by. In five years, we may have THOUSANDS
of Bichons..because of the very first litter..Can you PROMISE me..that EACH and
EVERY one of those..will have loving homes?.I wonder,..how many of those
Bichons...may end up in the shelter..wagging their little tails, smiling up at
the man...who has just told them.."Come on little one.. it is day three." And
the sweet little Bichon baby happily raises up, to be picked up..for the last
was her reply..

4:19:22 AM !!!First Boot!!!
Your letter really got to me. I wasn't sure if I should mate
her being there are so many dogs that get put to sleep. To let you know I talked
it over with the family and have decided to get our Mattie fixed. Your letter
just confirmed in my heart what I already knew was the right thing to do. Thank
