January Pet of the Month: Timba!

by Chun-Soon on January 10, 2010

2010’s first Pet of the Month is our very special Timba, of Prospect Heights. Not only is this pretty lady the sweetest dog on the block, but she is a Healer and a wise old soul. Even though she can’t move around like she used to, her spirit moves everyone around her.

Timba gets a treat-filled Doggy Bag, a surprise gift, and her mom receives a free 8 x 10 color print of her!

Name: Timba
Gender: Female
DOB: 12/23/1998
Breed: Belgian Shepherd

About me:  For the first 6 years of my life I had to live outside either tied to a tree or tied up to another dog, I was very thin weighing in about 55 pounds, a rescue group found out about me and was able to convince my then owner to give me up. I was placed in a shelter until my new mommy came along and rescued me. We just celebrated our 6 year anniversary together! My life has changed in so many ways since I was adopted by Jennifer; I gained 25 pounds, I was able to be inside and sleep anywhere I wanted and I became a Certified Therapy Dog and went to visit sick children in the hospital. I am also a Shaman dog. Just recently I discovered I have degenerative spinal myelopathy, it is a neurological Disease and there is no cure even with everything that I went through and am going through now, I am the happiest dog in the world!

My Sitter: Natasha is my sitter and I love her very much, she has so much compassion and patience with me since I don’t have much use of my back legs anymore, Since I can’t walk that much after I do my business we get to sit on the park bench and enjoy the sites of the people walking by. Thank you Natasha for everything!

Favorite Toy: Anything that squeaks.

My Best Friend: My best friend is my mommy but in the animal world I would have to say it is my brother and sister; Bogey & Sydney both of which are cats.

Favorite place to nap: On my dog bed which looks like a couch.

The Perfect Day for me would be: To be able to walk with my Mommy & Victoria to Grand Army Plaza and sit by the fountain.
