Hello everyone, I'm Vodka's mom. In fact, my mom has 2 doggies at home already, and she treated them like her sons. But I had always wanted to have my own dog. So after my family agreed to me having my own, I started my search for adoptable dogs. Personally, I really hate the sale of dogs very much, because I think this industry only makes merchants want to breed more and more dogs just to make a profit. Just as we often see on the news, there are a lot of dogs who are abandoned by puppy mills. When they get old, get sick or become worthless, they will be thrown out and left to fend for themselves on the scary streets. This is one of the reasons why I chose to adopt a dog rather than buying one. Vodka was a dog found in an illegal puppy mill by the Taiwan SPCA. At that time, there were a lot of people who wanted to adopt Vodka. Fortunately, fate was on my side and Vodka was given to me, I smiled from ear to ear as soon as I was given the good news. After finishing the adoption procedures, Vodka started his new life. But when it was time to go home, there was an unexpected episode. Vodka got carsick on the way home and vomited everywhere. Besides getting carsick, Vodka also had scabies, and had bad eyesight. At home, Vodka could never find his food, he would even knock over his water bowl or trip on his bed. I was very worried, so I went online and found as much information as I could about how to take care of blind dogs. Fortunately, I found that Vodka's eyesight has improved over time. Maybe it was his malnutrition that caused the eyesight problems, so I’m hoping with time and a good diet, it will just get better and better. Many people seem to reject the idea of adopting adult dogs, thinking they will be harder to train and adjust to their new lives. But from the moment Vodka started living with me, I felt he was very smart! In the beginning, Vodka would go crazy when he saw food and gorge himself on it, maybe it was because he was starved for too long. But little by little, I taught Vodka to "sit" and "wait" before he got to eat. And to my surprise, Vodka learned how to "sit" and "wait" in just one day! Such a smart boy! Now, any time he wants to eat, he will sit down immediately. One time I took him to buy some snacks at the pet store and he stopped and sat in front of his favorite snack, I was amazed! After only a week, he learned to pee in the correct place and his carsickness Vodka is gradually getting better. I hope Vodka will be able to conquer this problem one day, and then we can go travel and play anywhere! After adopting Vodka, I found MY life changed as well. In the past, I would always get up right before I needed to leave for work. Now I get up early to feed and walk Vodka. I’m getting healthier too! I hope that Vodka will be happy every day, and keep getting healthier and more energetic. I also hope that all dogs in animal shelters will be able to find their warm loving homes in the future, just like Vodka!
