I could not believe my eyes from what I saw. Down, in the corner of the very room, away from the rest, was possibly the smallest Needlepup that I have seen. It looked more like a white dustbunny than anything. The other Needlepups were energetic and colorful, but this one seemed to worn out. I slowly approached the corner, seeing it tremble and shake. "What's...what's wrong with this one?" I asked the King.

"This one was born prematurely and small..." he spoke, "Her mother died soon after her birth, and her father refused to care for her. It is a true miracle that she had survived all these years the way she is now."

I could not stand to hear and see this poor creature suffer. This little pup lived years with a mother that died and a father that did not care. I gently reached for her, gently touching her little head. She instantly made a squeak, a high and little squeak that actually sounded ill. She was shaking even more, all from my touch; I couldn't tell if she saw me or what. I asked for a small blanket, to which I was given in no time. Using the blanket, I gently grabbed each side of the Needlepup's body, gently scooping her up, and then held her close. It was shocking to see how small her body wasHer little body was so cold, her shivers were definitely reasonable. I could not stand to see this creature suffer. I held her close, letting my warm body attempt to help her. "Its okay little one..." I spoke to her, "Its okay...no one will hurt you. I'll protect you, I'll help you...you're not alone anymore..." I gently raise her up, planting a kiss on her little mask of hers, "My Little Strongheart..."


==================================

A couple of months ago, I had an RP with Skull-gum involving the King of Spearlegs. I played as myself, and I explored Spearleg Castle. In the rp, the King offered for me to adopt a Needlepup(baby name for Spearleg) to which I agreed. Then, we managed to tear ourselves up in creating this little one. Sick, abandoned, left to die, I had to adopt this little girl. What heartless person wouldn't?! I named her Little Strongheart, to show that despite everything her heart continues. I hope you guys enjoy it.

If you read the description, she was born prematurely, which means yes she's a bit sickly.

Yes I saw that, I thought premature meant early, I didn't know that caused her to also be sick

Well being born premature can cause a lot of problems. It could effect all body functions, including the immune system

I have another idea for an RP. Strongheart either wants to get a mate to start a family, or she wants to adopt a Needlepup as her own

Another trip to Spearleg Castle was on its way. Taylor pet Strongheart as they arrived. "Are you sure you're ready for this?" I asked her, "Taking care of a Needlepup is a big responsibility."

It has been a few years. I was walking back to Spearleg Castle with Strongheart right beside me. She has grown massive, up to the tallest height of what any feral Spearleg could grow to. But, she was still the most gentle and loving creature I knew. Although she wanted me to ride her, I walked. I stayed by her side though. I looked up to her, "Ready to see some of your friends?"

Her fur grew out a bit, and I had to admit she looked slightly rugged, but still, she was mine. I gently rubbed her leg.
