An Eddie Munster Look-A-Like?

As Momma CoCo goes grey (or white in her case), she’s developing the unique “look” of Eddie Munster!

Roscoe’s Cataracts

Roscoe is almost blind.  He has no vision at all in his right eye and limited vision during daylight in his left.  Although we would love to provide him with new lenses, his advanced age, cancer, and newly developed kidney disease and high blood pressure prevent us from doing the surgery.  After some adjustments in diet, supplements and heart medications, we seem to be making strides in the right direction and have seen some improvement in Roscoe’s lab work and his overall well being.  More tests coming in the next few months, to make sure he continues to improve.

Uh Oh!!

It’s been over 2 1/2 years since Jilly Bean came to us.  She was in the Sanctuary for a full year as we treated her for her resistant strain of heartworms.  Once cleared, Jilly moved to the adoptable list, but, sadly, the right home hasn’t come along yet.  Jilly can be challenging at times.  She prefers to spend her days in her crate, chewing on her collection of nylabones and will shred any and all bedding to her liking.  Jilly can be aggressive with other dogs and needs her personal space.  She’s very shy with strangers and rarely comes out to meet visitors.  She’s happy with us, so perhaps she is meant to stay.  We will give her another month or two on the adoptable list and if her forever home never comes, she’ll stay with us and become a Sanctuary dog, once again.

Our 60 Pound Lap Dog!

As Momma Sissy ages, her back legs have become weaker and start to tremor a little as she gets tired at meet and greets. But, Momma Sissy doesn’t like to lay down, so we’ve taken to putting her up on our laps when she needs to rest.  It’s quite a spectacle and she’s found another way to draw folks to our table.

And, being a lap dog has it’s perks … she can nap comfortably!
