We would like to give you a postive update on the 2 Chihuahua's dumped at the mill on Sunday, June 21. ( Click to read "What Were You Thinking".) Unfortunately, we can't. We do stop at the mill every morning when we walk Jan and she asks about them. Last Friday we were told the tan and white one was spotted but he scooted under buildings and got around so fast they couldn't corner it long enough to call Animal Control.
This morning we met the boss over the workers there. (I, Buddy, howled at him when he shook Jan's hand and introduced himself. Nobody shakes her hand but Merci, Sam and myself! Not without our permission and he didn't ask us. And by the way, he told Jan he used to have a Boxer, but last year while he was mixing paint in his back yard, a van pulled up out front and drove off with his dog. Watch your pets!) He said the Chihuahua growled at them whenever they got close to it and they lost it when it sped across the road and disappeared into the bushes. There is no way to find him in that jungle!
So Jan suggested they call Animal Control and ask for a trap to be set up in the shade. It's possibly the only way the tan and white dog will be captured. We are all very sad because the chocolate Chihuahua has not been seen since that first night. It was protective of this tan and white one, but was so hyper it could not be still or quiet. It was here, there, up, down, back and forth, barking all the while. With the lack of water in that high heat and humidity, Jan fears the dog died of heat stroke.
For any of you who missed the blurb on the Cat Blogosphere the other day, we'd like to introduce you to AniMeals. AniMeals.com is an animal food bank located in Missoula, MT. They help feed hungry animals and facilitate adoptions for abandoned pets. They are short on medicine, food, money, as they are overloaded with 25 adult cats and 46 kittens. So many animals end up at a shelter because their owner dies. Read the very short bio of Fifi and Mrs. Arbuncle, whose owner took his own life but couldn't/didn't take theirs too. They are among the cats needing a home. Click to visit thei AniMeals blog. Also check them out on YouTube. And if you can help in some way .....
There is some very good news. Laska, the Siberian that ran away from his foster home last week is back home again. You can read about Laska and lots of other news in various posts at Khyra's Khorner blog.
We are very sad for Huskee & Hershey's mom and dad. They lost their first baby a year ago and now they have lost their second. We can not imagine their pain! If you haven't stopped by to leave a word of support, we hope you will do so today.
Merci's prize from the SuppliesJust4Pets.com modeling contest arrived a little while ago but we haven't even seen what's in the box yet. We'll post on it soon.
