Truly the Pomeranian, the Dog of the Day
Name: Truly
Age: Sixteen years old
Gender: Female Breed: Pomeranian
Home: Fort Myers, Florida, USA
   My showgirl name was long and elegant but my people who adopted me named me "Truly" and my Mom always says "I love you Truly, Truly" and I am a happy dog.

     The adjustment to my new home was a little difficult, however. When my people opened my crate outside for the first time, I ran right into the swimming pool and sank. My mom had to jump in with her good clothes on to fish me out. Then the next day I did the same thing when they took me outside in the yard. What did I know about pools!! But I learned to watch where I am running and even learned to swim. I am not only beautiful, but smart.

     My first walks with my new family were long and hard. I walked a whole block to a cul de sac and I looked everywhere for the judges so we could get our ribbons and go home. " That was the longest show ring I ever saw," I thought. But we just turned around and walked some more. I had to learn to walk up and down stairs and my Mom got me ramps to help me be independent. Now I have gotten way stronger so I can run up and down whenever I want, so I go in and out all day long.

     I also have beautiful clothes. Mom bought me a Chanel inspired jacket with a white fur collar and a pearl buckle for one of my outings and everyone raved about how stylish I am. I have tee shirts and party dresses and costumes and nice warm flannel pajamas.

     When we moved to Florida, however, I got a short hair cut and I look really cute. The photographer liked it so much she put me on her website and I am a poster dog!! Everyone thinks I am beautiful. People want to pet me and I allow it but inside I am thinking, "please don't put your sticky hands on me," and I really don't like children to touch me. You just can't trust them. (There are no children judges in the show ring for a reason, I think.)

     My favorite things are laying in my pup tent thinking about how lucky I am to get to retire from show to such a loving family, and getting treats.
