I'm joining a FUN party hosted by Debbie of Debbiedoo's Blogging & Blabbing.
What a fun idea!!!!!

I have 3 dogs & 2 cats, all have been rescued.   This post is about one them, Ace.

Ace & Noggin

About 8 years ago, I worked for a veterinarian as her Practice Manager. 

Ace was brought in by one of our customers.  She had found him, almost dead, on her back steps..  He was about 6 months old.  One of his eyes was stitched shut, he had BB holes all over his body and had been chewed up by some other dogs.  We xrayed him & found his ribs were broken, his leg was broken, as well as being covered with large abrasions.

The lady left him at the clinic for us to care for or to put down.
The Dr. pumped him full of painkillers, & decided to see if he would heal.
He laid in his cage for months & eventually began to get better.
The dr was out of town one weekend, & I took the puppy home with me so he wouldn't be alone.
Well... that was the end of his hospital stay!
My husband fell in LOVE instantly & he has lived with us for the last 5 years!
We named him Ace, because of his one eye.

We aren't sure what he is mixed with...maybe Yorkie & Jack Russell???
Whatever, he is a JOY & a sweet addition to our family!!

Thanks Debbie...this was so much fun!!

Hope you do it again!!!


PS  The title of my blog is one of the 'nicknames' I've given Ace...he's the same color as a snickerdoodle cookie!!

    But Ace is so lucky to have found his way to you, thank you for taking him in and caring for him when his previous owner obviously didnt.
