Welcome Home Cuja (Gabe Red Hot)!

I would like to intoduce you to Cuja, my newest addition. Cuja was rescued from the Wheeling, West Virginia track by the Ohio State University Blood Donor program in July. She has been my foster dog since she left the track. I have recently made the decision to keep her. She will join my little girl, Shelby (a 16 year old whipador (whippet/lab mix)) and me in our home outside of Columbus, Ohio.

 

Cuja is a very sweet little red girl hound with amazing muscles. I usually get my fosters after they have gone through a 3 month prison training program. This is the first time I've had one fresh off the track. So I am kind of in awe of her muscle definition.

 

I also had the joy of seeing her finally realize what stuffies were for. She squeaked the stuffies every waking moment for at least 3 weeks. She's even killed two "Invincibles" snakes. You know the kind they claim will never stop squeaking?

 

Cuja is beautiful and sweet and funny and loving -- but she isn't an Einstein. This doesn't matter because I never wanted a dog that was smarter than me. She also likes kitties and little furry creatures a bit too much. This is also just fine with me.

 

She is a bit of a velcro dog, but so far hasn't shown any real signs of separation anxiety.

 

She will be a blood donor dog at OSU, saving the lives of many of her canine brethren.

 

So without further ado, here are the mandatory pics:

:wub: She's a real cutie, Jane!

 

My mom's big boy is a blood donor too, and he's very proud of it! He has a special bandana and when he wears it he carries his head high! :)

 

We know firsthand how valuable the canine blood bank is-Pinky received platelets after her amputation...she was bleeding too much for our doctor's comfort, so they gave her platelets on Dr. Marin's advice :)

 

Congratulations to both of you! :heart

Welcome home Cuja. Bet Shelby is happy to have you there! Enjoy them. Cuja doesn't have the pre-training Shelby had. You watch, Cuja will be brilliant soon. :-).

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
