meet Esme

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 

Meet Esme. Esme was found in the middle of the road, in the middle of the night, in the middle of nowhere. She was unable to walk and covered in matted, dreaded hair with cuts all over. A trip to the vet told us she had a broken pelvis. The x-rays, however, also told us that it was set as well, if not better than the vet could do themselves. All she would need was 6 weeks of rest, most of which was in a crate when we weren't around to keep tabs on her and Dakota playing. Last Wednesday we got out of the crate and began exploring the shorter trails and beaches. Yesterday was a bit snowier. So, if you didn't know, I have a new dog. And if you did know, well, this is Esme.  And she likes snow.

Bless your heart for rescuing this sweet pup.  Rescued dogs--and their owners--rule!

I'm glad you all met her.  She's camera-shy.  I'm surprised we got this one.  She was a good girl that needed something better'n she apparently had.

 

hopefully she'll make her way into some actual ski-related tr's...

Looking forward to more pics in the future.

Milkbones to you Splitter!  I wish I was 1/2 the person my doggie (past & present ) thought I was.

is that a common name in New Zealand?  I got if from a JD Salinger short story.  Always liked it.  First time I said it to her, her ears popped up like never before.  She listened to it ever since.

 

oh, and I'm a snowboarder -winkeez-

All right Splitter, I dig your style and apparently Esme does too.  This threat made my day in the office seem better, thank you. dave

That's awesome.  Tough to start a stronger dog/owner relationship than that.

Not a common name at all here and I think we got it from the same story "For Esme with Love and Squalor". I wish my daughter would listen to me. Just jesting about snowboarders smile.gif

She looks like a beautiful puppy, great job on nursing her back to health.

She's darling! I love my rescue dogs - glad you were able to save (or be saved by?) her . . . and that it is turning out well. Looking forward to more pics on your TRs.

Such a great story splitter! I hope you will enjoy her for many years. Rescued dogs somehow know they were saved and the bond created is awesome to behold.

I agree with this. Although both my girls were technically rescued, we got the shepherd mix at 6 weeks. She has no clue what her life could have been. By contrast, my pit mix was rescued at a year-and-a-half, spent some time on the streets, and spent about 6 months in at the shelter. She KNOWS she was rescued and is dedicated to us without question. Sometimes I think my shepherd mix would gladly live with my in-laws - she loves us, but it's not the same. The pit mix is ours and can pretty much take or leave people who aren't her people.

 

Enjoy Esme - she looks like a doll.
