The St. Louis Senior Dog Project is a not-for-profit dog rescue organization specializing in older dogs but taking in and finding homes for dogs of all ages and even a few cats. See our adoptable pets at www.olderbetter.petfinder.org.
Keep voting to help us win a grant. Vote every day until the end of July. We're currently #1 in Missouri and #45 in the country but the only thing that matters is where we are at the end of the contest.
I'll never forget Mr. Nubbins. None of us will, I'd guess. Nubbins was some kind of chihuahua mix....and some kind of character too. He was one of our all time curmudgeons. Let's just say he had a bit of attitude and liked to demonstrate it at times.
But the rest of the time he was darling. Ever known anyone like that? Of course, you have.
We found Mr. Nubbins at the Franklin County Humane Society. After several failed adoptions, he finally met a young couple who saw his inner softie. They say he's doing fine but still has his moments. As he ages, he still enjoys his walks but now prefers that they not be that long.
As for my day, it wasn't exactly quiet. Some good. Some bad. I learned this morning that Tippy is starting to eat and doing better. She's the little Lhasa mix with pneumonia I wrote about a couple days ago. If all goes well, she might come home tomorrow.
But while Tippy's getting better, we now have another hospitalized dog -- Wade the border collie mix puppy has Parvo, a contageous disease sometimes fatal to puppies. Wade is one of a litter of six puppies we took in a few days ago. Only time will tell if the others will sicken as well.
The people who adopted Charlotte the Springer Spaniel puppy decided today that they weren't ready for another dog. I wish they'd thought of that yesterday, but I'm glad they did the right thing and brought her back today.
Phone rang a lot today about dogs needing rescue. Not enough room. Not enough money. And no place to hide.
