Lulu pays Lennie’s Kids back

Published 10:42am Friday, September 13, 2013

With so many things going on, Lulu was a great distraction, but before I get to my sweet girl, let me review:

As always I’m on this emotional roller coaster – successes, failures and cases still pending.

I’m heartsick that I can’t find out what’s going on with the sweet young Boxer that was full of mange with bleeding paws. The follow-up examination on him was missed and now all I can do is hope I’ll be contacted and pray for the best.

Sasha (hit by a van) went back to Upstate to see Dr. Allen and hopefully she can come out of being caged. It looks like we may have to redo her ball joint. Prayers for the sweet girl, but we’ll get there.

Jollie (pup struck by the golf cart) will be in a wonderful rescue in two weeks. Boy is someone going to have fun.

Precious Sophie may have a great home soon. Sophie is an 8 and ½-year-old Chihuahua that was attacked by the neighbor’s dog. I’ll be meeting with the prospective owners soon and am quite optimistic.

Everyone wants Lil Bear, the magnificent little Golden born sans penis and tail. He needs about four more months of growing before we get his problem fixed. He’s doing just fine and certainly doesn’t have any lack of attention.

Holly, the 5-month-old Shepherd, was brought to Upstate last Wednesday. Holly was born with a misshapen paw that sort of dangles sideways.

It was deemed the best thing for her is to wait until at least March to get optimal results on the work that must be done.  Meanwhile, she’s residing with Cathy and Joe Picone and their team of Shepherds.
