    This is her story; Part 1
    In my travels to and from, I pass a small trailer park. One day I noticed a small puppy with a big head teathered with a big chain to a tree near the road I pass. There was an old recliner by this tree which was her bed. Rain, sleet or snow that little dog was standing or sitting near the tree. After I could no longer stand it, I stopped to see the little dog with the big head, she was sooooo glad to see someone. Her eyes were matted shut and a hunk of skin was missing from her nose. I noticed she was a female and that explained the other dogs hanging around her. I was so disturbed by this I even thought about taking her right then. I had to think about my approach to her owner and try to catch that person who was never at home.

    Since her eyes are open and her nose is healed, it looks like you did rescue her. That's good enough for me, even though I am waiting for part 2, as well. God Bless you for getting Sugar.

    I pass a dog, that is chained, every time I go to town. It makes me physically ill to see it.

    My next door neighbor chains both of his dogs. I absolutely hate it. It makes me cry. My dh is just as upset as I am. We have 3 rescue dogs or I would go over and ask if I could keep theirs. I can't adopt all mistreated dogs, but I surely would like to.

    People who have dogs that are chained shouldn't have dogs. There's a fairly new law in CA that they can't be chained at the same spot for over 3 hours, but people still do it. You want a dog, you should have a yard of some kind, in my opinion. Thanks for rescuing her.

    After several days I managed to see a light on in the trailer and decided to stop and go to the door. Sugar remained teathered to the tree with her wet overstuffed lazyboy. A young man came to the door 30+-, I ask him if he owned the little dog, he said his girlfriend got the dog for her little girl. She was not at home. I told him I had always wanted a dog like that and where did he get her. He didn't know or care, so I said I would catch up with the girlfriend when i saw her car. Several more days passed and during that time I did some research on the eyes of the sharpae dog. The information was alarming, stating if the dog didn't have eye surgery it would go blind.

    Part 3 The first time I spoted her car I stopped and knocked on the door, the little dog was still outside tied to the tree. When she answered the door, her daughter was standing behind her. I ask her if she would like to sell the dog, she stated no, she had gotten the dog for her daughter. I gave her the information on the eye condition I found on the internet, along with my phone number. I told her the dog would go blind without surgery. To which her daughter screamed out " I don't want no blind dog". The mother took the info and told me goodby. I'm thinking I'm going to take the dog anyway, not that I needed another dog I had 5 at home, but I would try to find her a home.

    I cound not just take her, even though I was dying every time I looked at her. I continued to pass this visual torment daily. Then about 10 days later I get a call from the mom of the little girl. She said her daughter was going to have a birthday in 3 days and she wanted a parakeet for her birthday. If I would buy a bird with all the necessary stuff she would trade the bird and stuff for the dog, well guess where I went the next day. 1 more post to come.

    final post for sugar;
    I spend$45.00 for a bird, food, cage, Book on the care of parakeets!!! etc. I make a cover for the birds cage for the night and deliver the bird on the Saturday of her birthday. The little girl was happy with the bird, so was her mother. When I left I put sugar in the car and we came home for a bath, two eye surgeries later she can see just fine. I saw the little girl and her mother not too long after I got sugar and i stopped to ask how the bird was working out. The little girl ask if I renamed Sugar Bear, and I told her no, she was content, however she did flag me down a few weeks later to tell me I gave her a bird that cuses...Imagine that.
