Happy First Birthday, Brookie!
For those of you, who remember Brookie's story, today is her guesstimate birthday. She was found wandering the streets of Brooklyn at 7 weeks with a broken leg. She was taken to the NYC pound where her leg was set with a cast that included a metal hook. When the poor baby walked, she sounded like Captain Hook. After we rescued her, she went through 2 other casts; the vet and orthopedic doc thought we might have to amputate her paw after all that since she had done so wellon three paws for so long. We knew better. Brookie as a fighter in many ways: sweet but incredibly tough. She attacked poor Milo many times. DH and I had many arguments during the first five months over her care. We brought her to a trainer and took Puppy101 several times. Today she is a happy puppy who runs like a maniac on all four paws. She still has agressive tendancies, but we know how to deal with them. We love her to death - Happy Birthday, Brookie!
Joyce and Milo with Brookie forever in our hearts
