I am the proud momma of my eight year old son, Chico, aka Jitterbug. Chico has been a part of my life from the age of three. I am disabled and I do live alone. I have faced many challenges and had it not been for Chico, I don't know if I would be here today. Thank God I am still here, happy and loved.
How many pugs own me:
About my Pugs:
Chico aka Jitterbug, is the light of my life. He keeps me laughing even when he does what he's not supposed to do. He loves to talk and will hold discussions with you. He falls in love with everyone that comes to our home and hates to see them go. He can be vindictive and will wait for you to forget just to show you that he didn't. He loves to eat....everything and just about everything. He will steal your food and will look at you as if it's your fault. About a month ago, Jitterbug took ill and started having seizures. I had him in the tub getting a bath and the next thing I knew, my world was turned upside down. I thought that he was going to die in my arms. His vet and the doctors at the hospital were suggesting that I put him down. I couldn't....... That wasn't an option for us. He was put on medication, but it took days and more trips to the vet and the hospital and more medication, before I started to see any improvement. He was as helpless as an infant. Still, I saw my Jitterbug trying to be who he is. If he was fighting for himself, how could I not fight for him??? Many do not understand. In reaching out to my friends and family for help and support, I quickly learned who the dog lovers were, as well as those who are just owners. I did a gofundme.com campaign for him. Much to my surprise, I was judged and chastized by people who I thought really understood and cared. Chico is a fighter and has been getting better as each day passes. It's been a struggle, but my baby is worth it all!

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
I am glad that he is making a go of it Alison, and yes there are good people out there who have dogs who are simply owners, and there are other who care for dogs, all dogs. I know that when mine is no longer with me, and I pray that will not be for a while, I will add another sponsor dog to my list as a memorial for him. I already have one in memory of the lady who taught me to love dogs and I have one for my Pug I lost years ago. I think if you love them you have to do it 100%. I know you do, becuase he has been your support now you have to be his. Helena and Hektor.
