    One eyed Otis

    He's taking over the place. The more comfortable he gets and the more he learns his way around (remember he only has one eye with limited vision and is mostly deaf) the more barriers he crosses. I have let him sleep on my bed (like Shorty) because as an outside 24/7 dog for 10 years as well as wearing an e-collar because of stitches from the eye removal....it just seemed cruel to try and crate him. I also wanted him close because he *could* scratch those stitches if he works it just right. There are little stairs that go up to my bed because Shorty shouldn't be jumping (back problem)

    One eyed Otis

    Every day it's something new and worse. This morning I was up at 5............Otis slept in for awhile but when he woke up he made a B-line to the kitchen. I'm going to have to move the covered trash can and the recycling container from the kitchen pantry into the garage. Good thing he's not tall enough to counter surf........

    One eyed Otis

    The dogs had a late dinner because an errand ran late. I gave Otis more than usual and he soon settled down on my lap in an after dinner coma. But his head (ensconced in the cone) was slightly off the edge of the chair. He kept sniffing the air very slightly to the point he worried me - was he having a seizure? All of a sudden he flew off my lap.....he doesn't jump down, he puts his front paws out, kicks off and flies (remember he's missing one eye and the other has very little vision). He runnnns out to the kitchen and starts sniffing one of the cupboards like there's a rat or something in it

    Aww, cutie for sure! Thank you for taking him. Our Cavies are older, 13 now but took them in at 11 yrs. They were breeders and from a hoarding situation. They spent an abundance of time out doors and their fav snack is dirt. Yes, dirt! They dig with their snouts and consume it so I'm always on top of them outside. Lily has 1 eye which we believe she lost to one of the 100 chickens living indoors and out. She sees better than the rest of them combined. I'm guessing he'll adjust with some time, patience is not very common with most these days. Again, thank you for giving him a chance!

    I got an email yesterday from one of my rescue orgs about a lil Shih Tzu who had happily been "fostered to adopt" but it was falling through because little Otis wouldn't stop barking at their cat. A new foster home was needed. I was sort of considering it....and my daughter stopped by to help me with something. After she left I decided Otis needed *me*. I logged back on to offer but he had quickly found a new foster home. For some reason, this morning I decided to send rescue an email saying if Otis' new home ever needed a break, or vacation I could pupsit. Later today I got a

    I’m back! Yay... Hi, bless their hearts. Why, oh why don’t people get help sooner. So glad they are safe now
  13. How sad... I'm so glad he got to live his last days being loved on by someone who could see him for the love he really could be. It sounds like it was a perfect match from the 1st time she saw him, obviously she is very special too... I know how horrible it is to lose a furbaby, heartbreaking for sure. RIP little Cowboy...
  14. Do you remember this little guy? Cowboy was on his "last reprieve" in rescue after biting a couple of people. We took him with us to Oregon where he settled right in to summer beach life. We were out walking him one morning when a nice lady (aka an angel) saw him and asked to pet him. I told her he had a bite history but she immediately sank down on the street and loved on him. The rest is kismet and he lived every day for the rest of his life with Laurie and her family including live-in grandchildren. I received this email from her this morning :-(

    That's one of the nice things about working with this particular rescue - it's where Shorty G came from. Every time I see her, when I pull and transport, she gets to see Shorty and always remarks at how good he looks. She knows he landed in a soft spot and that I would do anything to keep him happy and healthy.

    Poor babies, breaks my heart! So glad they'll be going to a loving place.... Makes me think of my rescue Cavies. The best feeling in the world is when I brought them to the fundraiser they had last month. Mark, the executive director of the shelter, was the one who asked us if we would take them and it's been almost 2 yrs. He saw the girls and was so excited, just kept saying look how good you look! Hoping those babies you pulled will have the same!

    I pulled 2 pitiful little girls yesterday from a shelter. I don't have any before pics of them. Here they are after doing the best we could to groom them. At least they are clean and flea free. No one noticed that Coco only has one eye.......her fur was so long, dirty and matted. They were found together. They had been in the same shelter last March.....but this time the owners would not come for them. They are going to be better off.......on their way to a comfortable foster home where they can learn how life should be. Well fed, kept clean and brushed, welcoming laps and affection

    crate size

    Chaco loves his little sofa/bed. I left his other in place to see which he preferred, and it was clear this sofa won hands down! Adorable, obviously comfortable, getting super fast free shipping Wayfair Promo Code, sturdy & easy to wipe clean or vacuum! 5 stars, for sure
  20. Hello, Any suggestions for online training to my little dog? even though I'm tight on budget for now but get training for my dogs is important. Also what's the best dog training books ? I have a few books by Karen Pryor and Mike ritlands team dog.

    The Bumbles

    They all had homes waiting for them where their new families will care for their spay/neuter incisions. One of the females has a long (4 - 5 inches) incision along her shoulder, down her back from lump removal. They all need dentals done but we wanted to wait awhile so they would not have to go under anesthesia again so soon after surgery. Their new families will have that done (rescue pays). They will be lovingly bathed, fed special food, laps to sit on and beds to snuggle in. They were aged at 6 to 7 so they have lots of years left to be loved and spoiled.

    I just don't understand people... How? Why? So many people want one of these little ones it would take nothing to rehome one! Breaks my heart... Thank you, Marlene for taking them to get help. I'm sure they will have a line of wonderful homes waiting for them!

    Thank you ...for being there in their hour of need. Shocking what some people do.

    The Bumbles

    Took a trip to a shelter about 30 miles south of me first thing this morning to pick up a trio of ragamuffins named (by the shelter) "The Bumbles". They were a mess....but they will be beautiful when their hair grows out from the shelter buzz cut, they are bathed, their teeth are taken care of. 2 females who both had evidence of several litters and a male. Strays? 3 Shih Tzu strays found together? Bet you dollars to doughnuts they were from a BYB who was done with them - 2 Mamas and 1 Baby Daddy. Dumped and never claimed at the shelter. Then drove them 60 miles north to the rescue

    How to stop chewing?!

    My mind immediately flashes to the 9 month old finding smelly puppy chews yummy. She is adorable and looks like an angel.

    That sounds lovely, Marlene! Enjoy your time at the beach, it's been years since I've been to the ocean!

    Road trip

    Haha the title of this thread shocked me. Road Trip! How did she know I made a road trip?!? I just made a 12 hour road trip yesterday. I am taking a trip - first time I've been out of town for a year and a half....since my husband died. I am going to spend a couple of weeks in Oregon, where we had a beach cottage for 18 years. Sold it the year before he passed. I rented a house up the hill from the beach - in the woods but every window looks out at the water. It's almost noon, the fog is clearing, the water is a deep blue and the sky is........sky blue :-) I slept with the win
