Bits and pieces of untold talesPublished 9:46am Friday, May 3, 2013
There has been much too much going on for me to tell an individual tale this week, so I’ve decided to offer short run-downs and some photos.
Roscoe (black Pomeranian), with degenerative disc problems, family is handling it and I’m on stand by. Two visits and the little fellow was as frisky and loving toward Uncle Lennie as ever.
Patches (white and brown pit): a few years ago Patches taught me a lesson about love and choices I should make. She has become the heart and soul of her family and extended friends. She has a blood disorder that Uncle Lennie’s fund is handling. Our girl is a bit lethargic, but loving as ever and she needs our prayers.
Taffy (a 3-year-old Yorkie) is very sick with a pancreatic problem and her owner has Parkinson’s. Dr. Fitch at Bonnie Brae’s informs me she’s doing fine and home with momma. Lennie’s fund handled this one. Thus far a success story for Taffy and her owner, fingers crossed.
Ernest (1-year-old Boxer Pitt mix) is a stray at Foothills Humane Society (FHS) brought to my attention by Lani (bulldog). He was hit by a car and had a broken leg and damaged pelvis along with an older injury. This is a long story that will be told. A major case for Lennie’s fund, for now the sweet boy is recouping at Landrum Vet.
Mink is a sweet cat being fostered by Ashley (cutie) from FHS. She has an impacted colon, estimated fee is $1,000, and Lennie’s fund is taking it on. Ashley intends to adopt Mink, whom she says is the greatest cat in the world. Who am I to question her?
My gala will be coming up in less than a month – May 26 at 4-7 p.m. at Tryon Estates, please come if you can. I will be at the Animal Fair this Sunday, May 5, if you can, buy some gala tickets from me for as you can see, “there is much to do and very little to do it with.”
From me and all my kids, God bless and…
Thanks for listening.
