Baby Face Nelson
Baby Face Nelson and CW Moss arrived in Atlanta December 22, 2010 - and they were so cute that it was love at first site! True to their namesakes, they "stole" many hearts everywhere they went! They arrived in Atlanta after traveling from Omaha to Chicago to Long Island to Baltmore and finally Atlanta.
They made the trip just fine and both were happy to sit in laps and be cuddled all the way home from the airport. We didn't mind holding them! Baby Face Nelson loved snuggling on Terrys lap, and giving little kisses. Does it get any better than that?
On first blush, it is easy to see that Baby Face Nelson, the smaller of the two, called all the shots between he and CW Moss, who was larger. Baby Face Nelson was the more self assured of the two, but CW Moss warmed up to hugs and snuggles more and more every minute.
They were among the youngest of the Missouri 11 at only 12 months old, and they clung to each other. CW Moss would cry if Baby Face Nelson was out of his sight. Baby Face Nelson was much smaller but was the alpha dog, easily nosing his brother out of the dish and leading the way outside. While they would cry when one of them was out and the other was left behind, they would sleep all curled up together in the crate, not a peep out of them. While this was as cute as can be, we knew that they would need to learn to do without each other.
After CW Moss was adopted, the resident female wire, Pepper was teaching Baby Face Nelson lots of new tricks like how to dance.
Unfortunately, she also taught him to roll in smelly stuff, which resulted in a bath - something Baby Face Nelson was not too happy about.
Soon, a lovely couple from Florida made a long drive up to Atlanta with their older wire girl, Maizie. It appeared that all of Pepper's tutelage paid off when Baby Face Nelson immediately knew that Ms. Maizie was the boss. The last update from them was that 12yo Maize was acting so young with her new playmate.
A happy ending for all, especially for two wire boys who started life living in an exposed crate with no one to love them.This couldn't happen without your ongoing support.
