A terrible day--Rufus has crossed the Bridge too

I had just started reading his blog and loved his creativity and bassetness. And, suddenly, along comes blastomycosis. It's a virus that hits hard and fast and does terrible damage--mostly it blinds. I have personally seen it. A friend of my mom has a dog that has lost his eyes--they had to be removed which is often the case with this disease. No one knows where it comes from--maybe hides in mulch so beware of mulch around your hounds. My mom and I are crying for him and for Baby Love today. We are howling in sadness. Please visit his blog and comfort his person: Rufus

This is such a sad day! So far, we've read about 2 doggies and a kitty that went to the bridge.

Thank doG, Asta told us about a 3 year old girl doggie in New York, that was saved from a kill shelter at the last minute! That is the only GOOD news we've heard today.

We've been over to visit Rufus' and Baby Love's humans. We know they are hurting very badly right now!

Aire-hugs,
Poppy, Penny & Patches
