Austin Pets Alive Fire Rescue
Gangrene: Huh? None of us remember writing on gangrene but since we share one short memory between us, we might have written a series and just don't remember it.
Dog drinks: Guess 3 visitors were interested in what modern dogs drink at house trashing parties - niptinis. They're quite tasty, actually. We just don't climb the walls after drinking 3 or 4, or even 8 or 10.
Animals with lampshades on their heads: Okay, this one we understand. It must be from the Christmas party. No, we didn't have one. Oh, yeah, Buddy wore the lampshade to keep him from scratching. Not that it kept him from scratching. He's a contortionist.
Cat stuck in the fridge magnet: I'm sorry. I must have slept through that Funny Farmer incident.
Farming knock knock jokes: Oh, we must have told a ton of them. After all, we're the Funny Farmers. Too bad we don't remember any, though. Feel free to remind us of any you might remember.
Happy Birthday farm song: Does anyone remember this song? We hope we weren't singing Happy Birthday to the peas and squash after the cats had too many niptinis. However, if we were singing it to Joe the donkey over at Marg's Pets, that's okay.
Percy Foster: Sorry, there's no Percy Foster here. Only Persevering Percy the handsome Mancat.
We were sent a link to a short inspiring article called Into the Fire. While others were fleeing the Austin, Texas fires, Austin Pets Alive learned Bastrop Animal Shelter was threatened. They mobilized volunteers and with a 9-car caravan, they loaded and rescued over 60 dogs. Many of them are already adopted.
Take a moment to read what Austin Pets Alive accomplished and how the public responded to their request for help. You can read the article here.
