Its Doggy Day

Hard to believe its Thursday already, but I'm not complaining... one step closer to the weekend! Sue has the reins over at Dogs on Thursday today and posted some great information on pet first aid. One of the tips she gave was to keep emergency phone numbers handy. To help you do this, request a free safety pack from ASPCA. It includes an ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center magnet and a Pet Rescue decal for your window/door. The decal is important for first responders, as it makes them aware of pets in the house in the event of a fire or other emergency. The magnet is right next to my phone and I also wrote the phone numbers for my vet and our local after hours emergency center on it as well. Very handy... and free!

There is much sadness on this doggy day. I just found out that Molly, the 1 year old Australian Cattle/Blue Heeler mix who was adopted from Miss Linda's at the end of January, was found dead. She got loose and went missing just hours after her new family picked her up from the transport. Many volunteers spent countless hours trying to capture her and bring her back to safety, only to be discouraged when sightings suddendly stopped about a month ago when we thought perhaps she had been taken by coyote.

After 2 months of searching, Molly was found in a local mall parking lot by the cleaning crew. She had been hit by a car and passed away just 8.4 miles away from her adopted family's home. The jerk who hit Molly never even stopped to help her! My only salvation in this is that we now know they coyotes did not get Molly... and for the unknown jerk out there, karma will catch up to you. Rest in Peace Molly... you sweet baby girl.

On a happier rescue note, I heard from Cotton's (formerly Bella) {I still love that pic} Mom last week. Cotton is doing very well and is as energetic as ever! It seems as though Cotton has trained her Mom & Dad on how to keep her out of trouble, meaning her "bad habits" have come under control.

She looks a little different to me in this photo... I think its due to her short hair cut, which seems to get rid of most of her tan/rust coloring.

Since I can't leave my own kids out on a doggy day, I'll leave you with these shots...

Sophie (with snow on her nose from last week) doing her "I can't see you" trick and enjoying a very lazy moment...

All beautiful dogs. So sad about Molly though! I think of your crew, Sophie and the snow nose is my favorite this week.

Very sad news about Molly. Love the snow on Sophie's nose. But my favorite is the photo of Lola & Tut. Is Lola part Dane? I'm sure I've asked you before. g

My favorite pic is Sophie snuggled under the blanket. My kind of girl.

Thanks for the tip. I'll get one of those magnets. We have the stickers on both front and back doors.

So sad about Molly. Cotton is adorable, though, as well as your four, as always!

How sad...sorry about Molly. Look at your fur-babies, snuggled under blankie!

Cotton is cute, but I'm a fan of the bigger pups, like yours. They always look so happy!

How sad about Molly. Glad your pups are doing well though!

What a sad story about Molly. I second what you said about karma and the jerk who did the hit and run. Hugs to all of your sweet furkids!

Thanks for the link for the free safety pack and I hope bad karma does flow down to the person who hit poor little Molly. I am sure she is happily chasing butterflies in doggie heaven now.

Sad about Molly. :(
