Patience is Rewarding
I’ve really always loved Pitties, but mostly just on FooPets. I used to own one back when I was a noob, and Maxwell’s background is the exact same as the scene I had for my other Pittie. I remember I used to really like playing with him in this background, I liked something about the color contrast with the beautiful sunset in the sky and the colorful reflection of the water, then the brown and white Pittie to play around in the area. I don’t really know exactly what it was, but sometimes for my babies I happen to find a particular scene I think looks great with a certain breed, and this was the scene I chose for Pitties.
As I’m sure you already know, I have a sliiight bit of a lostie obsession. Maybe it’s because pokeys don’t work on my computer, so I will never get to dream of owning LPHs and the like, or maybe it’s because I somehow relate myself to lost stats in the way that they’re different, and as their name implies, lost. A lot of the time in life I feel really lost in a lot of things, even everything at times. I’m not all that smart, I have terribly low agility, I’m afraid of scary movies that are meant to be comical (like Scary Movie 3, that really freaked me out tbh), and I don’t really know where my endurance would be if I were a FooPet. The only stat I’d be around average for would be, I guess, obedience. I’m not much of a rulebreaker unless I really need to, or the rules are unfair/unjust. But anyway, I think the implication that lost stats are impossibly lacking in a certain area (forgive my choice in wording) is somehow comforting to myself, and more relatable. It’s kind of like oddstats I suppose. I really like having pets that are different in an extreme way and don’t really fit in anywhere, just like I don’t fit in anywhere. But instead of being high statted, uber, and perfect, I’m interested in the lower and lost stats, probably because somewhere inside me these pets bring me solace and comfort when I’m lonely or in need. Whatever the reason for my love may be, a lost stat Pittie has always been up on my list of special pets I wished to own.
In the beginning I wasn’t all that picky on the lost Pittie I wanted. I started out just wanting a male, but eventually I purchased myself a female though I didn’t bond, and ended up trading her for a Yorkie instead. I really did want a male, though. I guess to me, Pitties just look more like boys than anything else ;p My best friend Koda had found some lost Pitties on the playpage before, but I never had the chance to adopt one of those. That’s okay though, I eventually got over it, especially once this boy was found. Maxwell being brought to the FooWorld was one of those odd and unique experiences one may not even have with their most favorite of pets. I suppose you could call it love at first sight, or perhaps it was something different. Who knows. Regardless, the moment he was found and up for offers, I knew I wanted him and I wanted him bad. I’m not really the type to beg, plead, complain, harass or whatever insane extents people may go to trying to obtain pets. I’ve always felt bad even talking about wanting pets owned by other people. I mean, I wouldn’t feel so great if someone came up to me and told me how terribly badly they wished to have my lost stat Yorkies, so I wouldn’t want to do that to anyone else either. Even pets that are for sale, I just feel like I’m pressuring people by talking about how important a pet is to me and how badly I want it, so I usually try to avoid saying stuff like that to the owners selling pets I like. I mean, I’ll mention ‘oh I love her so much it’d mean a lot to me to bring her home’, etc, your typical ‘this is the best pet ever’ sort of post. But I don’t really like to go any further because I feel it’s unfair to pressure people into accepting an offer.
So when Maxwell was found, and sold, and up for offers, and sold, and so on, I never pushed all too hard on his owners for him. Some people told me I should have, but hey, he’s home now so my way did work out in the end. Don’t get me wrong, I definitely did want him just as badly as the crazy people who send 1,000 messages talking about how great a pet is, I just held it all in so I didn’t bother anyone with my..quirky antics. So I continued to do as I had done from the moment he was found. Patiently waiting, and saving up.
I can’t remember exactly who found this sweet little guy, but I definitely remember WHEN he was found. He went up for offers fairly early on, if I do recall correctly, and I fell in love with him at first sight. I have no idea what was so appealing about this little guy in particular. Sure there have been other lost Pitties, and I even owned a female once, but none of those were as special as this boy. He is my favorite FooPet Pittie and I am absolutely blessed to finally have this opportunity to have him in my home.
If I remember correctly, I did offer on him when he first came up for sale, but I didn’t have much to offer so I was declined. He was then sold around a bit, but wound up with one of my good friends hom3wr3cker. He was very well taken care of by her, before he was rehomed at some point. One of those ‘write a paragraph why you want him’ sort of rehomings. I did enter, but I wasn’t chosen. I believe he then went to my friend Pentatonix, then I’m not really sure what happened but I do know that in the end, he went home with my friend Chosovi.
I only vaguely kept tabs on this little guy because of course, nearly all the times he went up for sale and offers I didn’t have enough to be considered. It’s never very pleasant to carefully keep track of all the different places a pup is sold when all along you wish to own him/her yourself.
But anyway, in the end I finally did get to welcome this boy home with me, and I am forever thankful for the opportunity to own him. He was adopted for 45,000 FooDollars from my good friend Chosovi, who I am forever indebted to for blessing me with this angel. As per usual I didn’t have the highest offer, but this time that wasn’t important because I still got to bring my baby home! Maxwell is a very special little guy and he is one of my most precious babies. I love him very much with all my heart and he will never be for sale, so please don’t ask. Thank you :)
