- Sunday, on my 58th birthday (after surviving a cancer with a 50% mortality rate, I truly celebrate birthdays!), I met Sprinkles aka Millie's new family half-way to Springfield, IL. I was charmed - they had the back seat all padded with a water bowl ready for her. A vet appt. is set for Oct. 4 to follow-up on her heart-worm treatment. You go, Sprinkles!
- On my way home, my route went near a good rescue friend of mine. After taking time for lunch, I drove to Rainbow Ranch/Recycling Rover where Debi had a Coonhound puppy for me. While I was there, a couple came to adopt a Coonhound puppy. They took the girl, who was the smallest. Originally, there were 11 at about 3-4 months old - what a hoot and holler! With that adoption, Debi had room for the last two so I left "my guy" but loaded up on supplies for Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary, the Boot Healers program in Charleston and Silverwalk. The BEST part of the visit, though, was sitting down with Debi and Robyn, cats on my lap. and having a long, relaxed conversation: highlight of my day.
- Tuesday, took Chloe and Mami to Skyview Vet for their spays, Darling Clementine to LaCroix Pet Hospital for a look see as she had developed a large mass on her upper neck (turned out to be an abscess from a dog bite; I have a suspicion of the culprit), then took Reagan and Molly T. along with four dogs from Safe Harbor to the Boot Healers prison training program in Charleston. We had a great visit with the offenders, many of whom had previously trained our dogs. This program is a win-win for canines and men, each learning a lot from one another. Phoebe, Stella, Butler came back to sanctuary, trained and ready to test for their Canine Good Citizenship title and for their own homes!
- Today welcomed Layla Beagle, a senior girl most likely with Cushing's syndrome. Her rescuer and loving foster mom, Kelly and transport/rescuer extraordinaire, Andrew, brought her and supplies (thank you!) to Silverwalk. We don't know how long she has to live but she fit right into the pack. What was really fun was seeing Kelly's little dog, Tinker and Andrew's wee dog, Woofie. LOL.
Update on Allie Mae - she who now demands her food, is up and at 'em like before (though still a bit weaker). You rock, Allie!
