Celebrating #NationalRescueDogDayhere’s your Monday morning get up and go. Let’s see if you can watch it only once! . . . No rant for you this morning. It’s obvious that we are here to encourage adoption of rescue dogs. We hope to show just what is possible by the example of our amazing pack of rescued dogs. Just scroll through our Instagram account, Facebook page, YouTube channel, and our website, pinkpigletpuppy.org and you’ll find endless reasons to justify adopting your next dog (or other pet) from a rescue or shelter. Now get on with a happy Monday. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#nationalrescuedogday#specialneedspets#adoptdontshop#noneedtobuy#cutenessoverload#bark#barked#dogsofinstagram#dogsofbark@goodmorningamerica@marleysmutts@petconofficial@adogsjourneymovie@theellenshow

Yet again, I somehow forgot to mention another Gotcha Day. Five years ago on May 8, I brought home a very sweet blind House Sparrow. He wasn’t my first special needs House Sparrow. At that point I had 4 others. But as we all know, sometimes there’s one that sneaks in for obvious reasons. Here’s a recent video of Blind Boy Willie followed by my infamous news breaking email to Warren, followed by pics of Willie when he arrived 5 years ago. The poor little bird had been passed around, didn’t have a name, and was very scared. He was a sweet little Guy right from the start and I couldn’t say no. Thankfully Warren very kindly agreed. Willie has had a relatively good 5 years here. He gained confidence, sits on my finger when my hand is in the cage, and has periods of chirpy happiness. A few months ago he became very sick and I thought that was it. Somehow he rallied and is feeling much better. He’s not 100% but he seems content. I frequently question his quality of life living in a cage but he has always been calm and cheerful. Soon he will go outside to our outdoor aviary Bird House with my other two Sparrows. Hopefully the fresh air and outdoor noises will help him feel even better. Happy Belayed Gotcha Day Willita.💕💕 . . #pinkpigletpuppy#housesparrow#bird#gotchaday#blind#specialneedspets

We went to the Westport Dog Festival this afternoon. Piglet was happy to be in his stroller. Evie was happy to be along with us. Everyone else stayed home. We stopped at a number of booths, and ran into a few friends. It was warm but a very nice day to celebrate dogs. Recognize this friend? Coincidentally we ran into Anne from @ctdachshundrescue! A few days ago we posted a picture of her and Baby Piglet from 2 years ago when she was helping me find Piglet’s forever home. Well there’s no question that Piglet recognized her. Despite being a little bit grumpy because he thought he should be the only dog at the dog festival, Piggy completely relaxed in Anne’s arms. For those who don’t know, Piglet catalogues every person he meets in his memory bank. He recognizes his friends by smelling their breath. Anne is obviously a special friend to Piglet and to many many others. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy@westportnow@westportchamberofcommerce41@westportwestonchamber#winslowpark#dogs#westportdogfestival#westportdogfestival2019#sunnyday#meetingfriends#dogkisses#pinkdog#sweetdog#blinddog#deafdog#specialneedsdog@townofwestport#cutestdog

Sentimental Sunday Are you inspired by Piglet? I get messages from Piglet’s friends every day telling me how inspired they are by Piglet. As we all know, Piglet is a positive force. He faces his challenges with a positive attitude and never looks back. His Piglet Mindset is an example for children and adults alike. He’s also really cute and feisty which makes his story even more compelling. Recently I was asked if I am inspired by Piglet. It was a question I had never asked myself and felt embarrassed to say “No. While I find Piglet inspiring, I personally am not inspired by Piglet. I live with him and take care of him. I take inspiring pictures and videos of him doing all sorts of inspiring things, but it never occurred to me to be inspired by my tiny pink boy.” Yesterday this topic came up in conversation which made me reconsider the question of whether I am inspired by Piglet. Coincidentally today is the one year anniversary of our trip to the first Special K9 Games. Scroll to see highlight pics from our weekend in Columbus, Ohio. We spent two full days with 100 people and 40 dogs all there to recognize and celebrate our special needs dogs and our commitment to them. We came out of our comfort zone to try new things and push our limits in a fun safe environment. We gave our dogs the opportunity to participate in friendly supportive competition. Looking back, this was a highlight of Piglet’s 2 years with us. Reviewing these pictures one year later brings me to new answer to the question of whether or not I am inspired by Piglet. The truth is that Piglet does not motivate me to get out of bed in the morning for any other reason than he and the other dogs have to go out to pee. But, of course he inspires me. I watch and smile at his amazing determination throughout the day, every day. He inspired me to create his social media accounts to share his beautiful inspiring story. He has inspired me to reach out to teachers and children and others all around the world. We have broadened our rescue network and have helped countless special needs dogs through Piglet Merch sales. I know how lucky I am to be his mom. Yes I am inspired by Piglet. Onward!

It wasn’t our usual weekend walk, but it was the best outing I could offer the dogs today. They were more than happy to hop into the car and go wherever I was planning to take them. Here’s the outcome of a ridiculous trip to the marina. As you can see, I made 5 trips back and forth to give everyone a chance to pee and have their picture taken on the stone bench by the water. It is by far one of the nicest days of the year. It was nice to be out even though the usual routine was not possible. We hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#beach#longislandsound#beachdogs#beautifulday#sunnyday#rescuedogs#photoop#picsofdogs#dogsmiles#cutedogs#weratedogs#dogsofinstagram#petinsider#tdafam#adoptdontshop#specialneedsdog#blinddog#deafdog#westportct@westportnow#pawnatic

We are having an extremely lazy afternoon today. Piglet is obviously lying on top of me covered by a large soft fleece blanket. He briefly came out for a quick breath of air, tongue out as usual. As quick as he came out, he tucked himself back in. Don’t miss the big sigh at the end. Enjoy your afternoon! . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#tongueouttuesday@totuesday#pinknose#sigh#deafdogsofinstagram#blinddogsofinstagram#cutenessoverload#specialneedsdogsofinstagram#dogsofinsta#bark#barked#dogfeatures#dog#tdafamily#petinsider

We're looking forward to @adogsjourneymovieopening in theaters TODAY! Piglet's own journey began over 2 years ago when he was rescued from a hoarding situation in Georgia. Unfortunately his original people didn't spay and neuter their dogs and they allowed two dapple colored dogs to breed. This resulted in Piglet being born adorably pink but also deaf and blind. Once Piglet arrived in CT, his journey took an abrupt 180 degree turn. He now lives the life of a prince as an educator, animal welfare advocate, and fun loving tiny pink puppy. He creates smiles all around the world. You can make your own dog's movie poster and purchase tickets to see the movie by visiting MyDogsJourney.com. #MyDogsJourney#ADogsJourney#ad

May 5 is a very important Piglet date. I have no idea how I missed it but May 5, 2017 is the day we formally failed. As previously noted, failing at fostering Piglet was a very big deal. He was not planned, he was very difficult to care for, and he had turned our household over on its side. But, looking at the first video here, as I have numerous times already this morning, I’m sure it’s easy to see why I finally took the plunge, broke the news to Warren, and became Piglet’s mom for real. Piglet was home, he was as settled in as he was capable of settling at that point, and in a million years I never would have been able to part with him. Here are some small snippets from the emails I sent to the rescuers letting them know Piggy was adopted. There was more but this is revealing and embarrassing enough to post. We hope everyone has an amazing fun filled weekend. We will be belatedly celebrating our tiny pink boy’s adoption, as we do every day anyway. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#adoptdontshop#foster#adopt#fosterfail#blinddog#deafdog#specialdog@fosterdogs#rescuedog#rescuedogsofinstagram#mydogist#thedogistcollective#dogsofbark#bark#thedodo@fortheloveofsmiley@the_kardoggians#cutestever#buzzfeed#adoptionanniversary
