Rebekah...

her story continues

Rebekah, the book series, covers the life of a small abused and abandoned Pekingese dog that had been left on the side of the road with a huge rubberband forcefully pulled onto her beautiful sweeping tail. This was unnoticed when the animal control officer picked her up for transporting to the local animal shelter.

As I had grown up on a farm always having big mutt dogs, I never imagined adopting a lap dog and she certainly was not attractive as I walked down the aisle of dog kennels. She cowered in the back of the kennel giving out a small cry. I turned and left thinking no more of her. That night I did not rest as I dreamed of her all night even selecting her name in my dreams. I called the shelter as soon as their doors were open the next morning. Assuring them that I intended to adopt her and that I would be there at the end of the day, the officer agreed to hold her. As I arrived, she was different in her behavior. She was at the front of the kennel and no longer crying. As I reached in to take her, I noticed the rubberband. The officer and I were shocked. She had pulled all the hair from her tail and was dragging it behind her. The officer informed me that I should expect medical costs with her condition and attempted to encourage me to adopt another dog. I informed him that I appreciated his concern but my decision was made.

Rebekah lived 15 years with her tail stub not even an inch long. That stub made her more special than I can explain. She died in 2007 at the age of 15 of an inoperable brain tumor. Rarely a day goes by that my husband and I do not think of our 'little lady'.
