"I just found your site and wanted
to tell you about my Chow 'family'. Last December, I was visiting a
friend and she had a stray Chow that had been hanging around her yard for
weeks. Her neighbor had tried to shoot the dog many times so I brought
the dog home with me.
"Of course, she was pregnant.
Two weeks after coming home with me, she gave birth to 5 puppies. Two
died the first day, probably because their mother had been malnourished and had
several nasty cuts on her. The other three, two cream and one black, all
females, soon grew into precious loving pups.
"My husband and I got so attached
to this little family that we kept the three pups and 'Mom'. The pups are
now a year old and are the most friendly, loving and funny group of dogs.
We have a 9 year old pit bull/Chow mix named 'Buffy' who's become their
favorite 'aunt'. They love to drink water from the pool, chase birds and
play with Mom and Buffy.
"Maybe you can put this story in
your Happy Endings file."
