Am I Famous Now

        Author: Cynthia

       I was born today. One of ten. My daddy was very famous. I have lots of half brothers and sisters. My mother is very famous. Since she got famous, she has only had puppies. No more loving hands, no more fun trips... just puppies. She is always sad when they leave her. 
     I left home today. I did not want to go, so I hid behind my mama and my three litter mates that were left. I did not like you. But one day they said I would be famous. I wonder; is famous the same as fun and good times? So you picked me up and carried me away, even though you were concerned about me hiding from you. I do not think you liked me. 
      My new home is far away. I am scared and afraid. My heart says Be Brave. My ancestors were. Did they go to good homes like mine? I am hungry because I cannot eat too much because it will be bad for my bones. I cannot bite or snap when the children are mean to me. I just run, play, and pretend I am in a big green field with butterflies and robins and frogs. I cannot understand why they kick me. I am quiet, but the man hits and says loud things. The woman does not feed me good things like those that I had with my mother. She just throws dry food on the ground, and then goes away before I can get too close for touching and petting.
Sometimes my food smells bad but I eat it anyway. 
      Today I had 10 puppies. They are so wonderful and warm. Am I famous now? I wish I could play with them, but they are so tiny. I am so young and playful that it is hard to lay here in this hole under the house nursing my puppies. They are crying now. I am so hungry, and so very thirsty. I wish someone would throw me some food, and just a little water would be so wonderful, I have no milk for my babies.  I now have eight. Two got cold during the night and I could not make them warm again. They are gone. We are all very weak. Maybe if I take them out on the porch, we can get some food. 
      Today they took us away. It was too much trouble to feed us. Someone grabbed my puppies, they were crying and whimpering. We were put in a truck with boxes in it. Are my babies famous now? I hope so, because I miss them. They are gone. The place smelled of urine, fear and sickness. Why was I here? I was beautiful, like my ancestors. Now I am hungry, dirty, in pain and unwanted. Maybe the worst is unwanted. No one came though I tried to be good. 
      Today someone came. They put a rope on my neck and led me to a room that was very clean and had a shiny table. They put me on the table. Someone held me and hugged me. It felt so good! Then I felt tired and laid over the last one who cared. I Am Famous Now. Today someone cared.  


 Please help to stop puppy mills, by just walking away. I know it is hard, and one just wants to grab all the puppies up, to save them, but by doing so we keep them in business.
