Day 2: Crystal’s past

Who are you, Crystal?  What’s your story?

She is such a mystery to me. All they told me is she arrived at Ruth’s in a “shipment” from Missouri with two chihuahuas, a large Yorkie, and several other dogs.

How many litters did she have? Was she abused? Ruth said it was a “breeder surrender”. Voluntarily?

It’s unusual, apparently, for rescue organizations to get much background info. But Crystal came with papers.  She is apparently 6 – the  date of birth –10/5/2005. On her envelope scant details: Collar #3, #13 MinPin, Crystal, cage #122.

There’s a scar along her underbelly – is she fixed?

Ruth warns me that scars can indicate emergency caesarian, sometimes crudely done by the kennel owner.

As she sleeps and sleeps in her curled up default position, I wonder…

Who are you, Miss Crystal from Missouri? What was your life, before?
