Maybelle-POM-November 2017


My name is Maybelle; I am a 9-year-old Pitbull and I am the love of my parents’ lives. My mama and daddy found me on the street and treated me for heartworms, got me spayed, and got my teeth fixed. It took me a while to get healthy, but my new pack was patient and now I fit right in! My mama calls me The Most Special Little Girl in the world and my daddy call me The Most Expensive Dog in the world. He says that because I was diagnosed with lymphoma in March of 2017, and I think the chemo treatments have put a dent in his wallet. That’s okay, though: I’m worth it!!!

Life is good: I have had very few side effects from the chemo, and thank God, I have been in remission for the last 6 months. Yay!

Some of my favorite things are goat cheese, broccoli, blackberries, my fleece hoodie (when it’s cold outside), annoying the stupid cat that lives with us, and people. I LOVE PEOPLE!!!! Luckily, I am cute enough that most humans love me back.

My parents spoil me rotten (especially my mama); everybody at Waxahachie Veterinary Clinic takes very good care of me; and I have a whole new bunch of people at VSNT, where I go for chemotherapy, to love. I am a very happy dog!

Thank you for taking the time to read about me, and if you ever think of me, please do so with a smile on your face, a wag in your tail, and prayer in your heart that I can keep beating this pesky cancer thing. Lots of love and kisses to everybody, even if I haven’t met you…. YET!!!
