Nicki Fricker had always been a passionate advocate for dogs. But little did she know that her encounter with three little pups would change her life. Nicki is the proud owner of Molly the minie doxy, Moo the labrador and Maddie the white german shepherd.
Nicki had found her three pups abandoned by their respective owners before she decided to be a mother to them. She adopted Moo, her first dog, years ago when she found him living in a garage. Moo is now her service dog and best friend!
Nicki adopted Molly from her owners because they had decided to abandon her as they were having a baby. They believed they couldn’t afford to give Molly a good life. That’s when Nicki stepped in and took Molly home from the parking lot she was roaming in. Molly is quite popular in the Facebook group Dogspotting Society!
Maddie had been living in a small kennel outside her owner’s home all her life. Neglected and uncared for, she was covered in fleas and had many bald spots. Before Nicki adopted her, she was was extremely scared of people and her surroundings. But after Nicki came in her life, she became brave and is now a truly wonderful guard dog!
Nicki’s poems for her beloved pets:
My name was Dottie It was just a normal day, My person woke me up I thought he wanted to play.
I heard him talking To his wife in the next room “You’ve gotta get rid of her, The baby is coming soon.”
So he carried me out To his car in the driveway We’re going to the park! It’s gonna be a great day!
But instead we waited Outside of a door, I heard lot of dogs barking Are there new friends in store?
A girl was waiting With a lost dog she found I started to wonder Was this the pound?
The doors were now opened She and the stray walked inside, My person will leave me here I started to cry.
She came back outside And she spoke to me, “I’m going to be your mom now.” But I cowered fearfully.
My person looked down at me And handed her my lead He said “I’m so sorry, I’ll have a new mouth to feed.”
He told her “My wife is having a child, We just can’t keep her.” He had a sad smile
I’ll be a good sister! I promise! I swear! I’ll guard your new baby! This just isn’t fair!
She led me away I couldn’t stop shaking, Is this what it felt like For a heart to be breaking?
I sat in her lap The whole car ride there, Where was my person? Is this a nightmare?
We parked at a house And two dogs came to greet me, They were massive and happy But I just wanted to flee.
She introduced me Molly was my new name, They were Maddie and Moo And my family they became.
I learned that this couple Is my new mom and dad, And they love me much more Than my old family had.
My name is Molly And this is the beginning, Of how I made My parents’ world start spinning.
Hi everyone, my name is Moo You all know little Molly, She got famous just because She was treated like a dolly.
But I will tell you the story Of how I got rescued too, My story is unique But way less people knew.
My last people bought me As a friend for their son’s pooch, He was a beloved family pet But I never got one smooch.
I was raised in a garage And never went outside, When I grew into a big dog They cast me aside.
My now person heard me there I was lethargic and obese, She knocked on their front doorstep When my crying wouldn’t cease.
She asked if she could take me The people didn’t care, They were just excited That their garage would become bare.
My person took me home And became my bestest friend, She’ll never ever abandon me Because to her heart, I did a mend.
My person helped me lose my weight I couldn’t run before, My hips used to hurt Even walking was a chore
Now I can run and play all day But sometimes my person needs me, So I help her out the best I can She trained me effectively.
I’ve been with my person On so many milestones, When she moved and got married I got to go to a different timezone!
Some of you may remember When staff in the airport misplaced me, They found me in a supply closet And the internet was angry.
Now you know my story And you can go about your day, I hope that my picture Made you happy in some way.
