The people associated with Double Dog Rescue asked my mom to create a blog page for a beautiful little labradoodle named Clint. This is a fundraising blog. Clint is 6 months old, a sweet, beautiful dog that was born with severe hip dysplasia. The operation is going to be $8-9000 to fix his hips. This is quite daunting but everyone is so in love with him that they want to do everything possible to give him a wonderful life. On our blog we are only going to ask for the money for one hip--which is about $4000. UTK vet school is giving us a discount on the operation. His surgery will be in October. The other hip will be fixed 6 months later. We will raise money for the other hip through other sources. The page isn't ready yet but when it is my mom will have me put a link on my page. My mom asked them to document in pictures everything about his life so we can see the progress and celebrate his successes.
Here is another coonhound my mom fostered. He went to Mutts4Rescue in Portsmouth, RI--he looks a lot like Booker, doesn't he?? My mom loved him and named him Dickens after a little beagle that we lost to parvo (one of Baby's babies, brother to Bitey and Beau). He did have a home but the home broke up--they loved him dearly. He went with the mom but the mom cannot keep up with the active lifestyle he needs so he was returned to the rescue. He is a sweet, gentle, good boy who is house and crate trained so if anybody up there in northeast US would like a coonhound this is your boy!! We totally vouch for him.
So, yeah, this is how we're retiring from rescue. HAHAHAHA NOT!
Our friend, Gus the Beagle, has a new brother! Welcome, OLIVER, to the world wide web of forever homes!!
Here's me. Yes, this is MY blog afterall, Mom !! First, I was chewing on a plastic cup, love those things! and then I climbed up in the freshly washed & dried blankets. There is nothing better than a blanket just out of the dryer!
