Horatio's Heavenly Skies


It is with a very sad & heavy heart to inform you that our dear, dear boy, Horatio, is now in bully heaven.

July 4, 2008 - July 31, 2008


He will be missed greatly by Mommy Ena and her family. He fought very hard, for himself & for his mama, to stay in his only recently wonderful world. Physically his heart could no longer go on. She would like to thank all of his wonderful friends and supporters that have helped make the last month of his life, despite being so ill, the best month of his life.

doGspeed to you Horatio, we love you, you sweet, sweet courageous 4th of July bully boy. Your spirit will live on in the many lives who you have touched. We miss you. Your mommy will never forget her gentle brindle pit bullyboy, or his big brown eyes that told her that he loved her or his broken tail that would wag everytime he saw her.

If you would like to send condolences or a contribution to Horatio's emergency medical treatment last night, please e-mail for Ena's home address. Thank you & bless you. You've shown Horatio that the people can be kind & loving.

I'm so Luv-a-Bull!


I always thought I was luvabull, but now I know I am. I have a mommy, a sister who babysits me, a new bed, TOYS... omg TOYS... I love my toys. I think this one is supposed to be a football... or a pig.. it's a piggie football! :D


and I got a funny lookin' frog. It goes "rib-it." Frogs are funny. And a pretty blue collar. I think I look pretty cute in it.


I am making friends with my canine siblings and Peaches the Cat, too. Well, almost all of my siblings. Momma's spoiled little Basenji Zorro- Babaloo - is bit jealous of me and he ignores me. He does funny things to get Momma's attention. One night Momma gave me a bath like she always does and then fell asleep by me. She woke up in the middle of the night to go to her own bed and couldn't find any of her pillows. All 8 were missing. She found them outside in the mud. (Babaloo did that!)

My favorite things to do now are to watch my canine siblings play outside

Someday, I'm gonna be well enough to go romp around with them outside. I want to play really bad. But the doctors say I have to rest. I still have 102-104 temperatures, whatever that means. It makes me shiver & shake. Oh well, it's a good thing I like sleeping, too.

Sometimes I curl up on my Momma's chair!



My eye looks a little bad in that picture, but the doctor said he thinks it will be fine in a week. YAY! I eat and eat and eat yummy food two times a day but I can't gain any weight. The doctor says it will take time.

Ok, I'm tired now.

Over and Out! Love, Mr. H

This is a story of my NEW LIFE!

Hi, I'm Horatio, a Pit Bull puppy! I don't like thinking about my old life, because I was abandoned because no one loved me.

But on the 4th of July, this kind lady found me and she brought me to this new place she calls "my home." I tried to tell her about my old life, this happened and then this happened to me, but she said I didn't need to tell her, she could see what happened to me.
She said I was emaciated, I think that just means I am really hungry because I didn't have food for a long time.

I was wondering why I was so itchy all the time and why my skin hurt, and this doctor said I have a very bad case of mange. Some times it is pussy and I sweat blood. I don't like that! I have to get a lot of rest for that, take some medicine with turkey or jelly (yumm!) eat nutritious food and get lots of baths. My mommy says I'm a good boy.

I also have auto-immune problems. That means I just get sick easier than most other dogs, I think.

Mommy puts stuff in my eye too. She says I have real purdy brown eyes, but if one doesn't get better, I might lose an eye. WHAAAT?! I wanna keep my eye! I gots to see what is going on!

THEN the doctor says I got a heart murmur. Huh? The heart is for loving, and I think mine works real good.

The doctor also said me tail was broken... in FOUR places! I was wonderin' .... it hurt before when I was wagging it. I still wag it all the time now, because I am happy to have a mommy and a place to live.

My mommy and I go for walks every morning before it gets too hot. Sometimes, I cry when I think I lost my mommy. Once she was behind a tree and I couldn't see her!

My favorite things to do are to sleep, bark, eat my organix dog food, my yummy bones, and listen to mommy tell me about all my Angels and people who are rooting for me to get better.

My mom's friends set up this account for me at the doctor. They say I am real good when I go to the doctor and get my tests done. Some dogs, they don't like going. But I want to get better, so I don't mind. They tell me that I am going to have to go to the doctor alot until all my fur grows back. :(

If you can help with my bill, I will give you the biggest bully wiggle-butt wag and kiss ever!
