Given that Frank shared his young Cardigan Welsh Corgi pup, Stuff with us, I couldn’t resist sharing my little Luna.
A series of new beginnings occurred in my life three years ago when I moved from Northern California to beautiful sunshiny San Diego. I moved into my new home and starting to make new friends, and while I have my relatives nearby, the town that I live in, Fallbrook, is a small rural community of 36,000 lovely people.
But home alone was a little too lonely so my best friend Carolyn, whom I’ve known since high school, upon visiting me, encouraged me to get a companion.
I’ve never had a pet before, and as a business professional, my early years of establishing credibility meant a lot of long hours and travel. I didn’t think that I had the time to also take care of a pet. I was wrong of course, but at least in my new home and new life, I accepted the challenge. It was the best decision I ever made. My little Luna fur-baby is the best friend any one could have.
Carolyn, relentless about helping find a buddy, first found her on a rescue website, and after combing through many little pups, I fell in love with Luna at first site. I named her Luna because of her little round white butt, but also because it is a worthy name. 😊 Her foster home name was Minnie, and that just didn’t fit her little self.
She was born in a Shelter on February 28, 2016, and was one of two in the litter. She was immediately moved to a loving foster home for care until she was adopted. Even though it was my first time as a pet owner, the shelter accepted my application because I work from home and knew that would be the best of worlds for a new puppy.
While they had her listed as a Puggle, a crossbreed between a Beagle and a Pug, which obviously she was not, I went ahead and obtained a DNA sample so I could have in case of health emergencies, and we learned that she is 100% Chihuahua.
We were lucky that they took a photo of her just a few days after her birth.
Thank you for sharing my little Luna’s birthday story with me.
