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. Check out our adoptable pets. We'll be back at the Kirkwood Petco next Saturday 11 to 3.
I've folded up the exercise pen, scooped up the newspapers and plastic tablecloth from the floor, and begun a post- puppy cleanup.
I am without puppies tonight. At today's Puppy Sunday, we found homes for Stella, Sadie, Emma and Rocky -- four of the seven puppies rescued from Jefferson County Animal Control. Three still need homes: Tony, Reno and Bean. These are the latest pictures of Reno and Tony, and I hope to take a new one of Bean soon. Suffice it to say, Bean will look a lot like a Chocolate Lab when he grows up.
The puppies were only about five weeks old when they were abandoned at the shelter. During the time we had them, five came down with parvovirus...and all five recovered. I had one last-minute scare when Sadie fell off the sofa and bruised a back leg last night. For awhile she hobbled around on three legs, but gradually she began putting weight on the leg, and I could see she would be okay. This morning she was limping a little but doing better by the hour.
So it's quiet here tonight, and I look forward to an uninterrupted night of sleep. My only unadopted puppy, Bean, went home with a new foster mom, Melissa. Delfina took Reno home, and Tony went home with his new foster mom, Lindsey.
I'm a little worried because I know some of these puppies are probably crying tonight, their first night not curling up with littermates. They don't yet understand that they've found their homes.
But they will understand soon. Good luck, puppies
And don't you worry, Reno, Tony and Bean. You're next.
