First, we would like to update yesterday's post. We mentioned our friend Criz in Malaysia and the medical bills his rescued cats have been racking up the last few weeks. They have been fighting the Calici Virus, and now Justin is severely ill with it and Jason now has the same symptoms his mother had.
If you can spare a dollar or two to help Criz and the J Family of cats, we would greatly appreciate it. And we know Criz would too. He has been having health problems of his own, but still he has had a houseful of sick animals to care for, and he has put them first. There is a Paypal "Donate" button on the left side of his blog.
(Jan here. Percy is usually the JFF typist, but it's too cold in here today for his little paws, so I filled in for this post. It's too cold for my fingers too, but Criz's situation is important. Buddy said he needed to go out, but I was intent on finishing this post. I said, In a minute. Call it temporary insanity, but I momentarily fogot when Buddy says he has to go, he means NOW! I finished typing and discovered what all the noise had been behind my back. Of all days, he had to pick this one to not be able to hold his poop. The area rug was littered with white fluff and small pieces of poop they'd slung around while playing tug of war with Buddy's bed. Yes, they are all still alive. Please, bribe their way out of the doghouse and donate some spare change to Criz.)
We're a little late posting this, but in case you want to read about Ratchet's arrival in Minnesota, here's a link with photos. Ratchet is the Iraqi puppy that created such a furor when he was confiscated by Gwen's commanding officer on the way to the Baghdad airport, where he was scheduled to leave on a rescue plane for Gwen's home in Minnesota. But he is safely home with Gwen's family now and will be waiting for her when she is released from her military duty.
Ratchet has arrived home.
We love this video of Monk the Kingdom Dog. Jan says she wishes she had given Buddy a name to live up to, as she did Samaritan.
