We just finished pulling three Iggies out of our kill shelter in town. Two boys and one girl. One boy looks okay, but the other two are mal-nourished. The little girl seems to have a fever. When I saw them I just cried. I can not believe how some people can do this to any dog, but to any iggie that is already a very small dog and only 10 months old just P's me off. But they are safe and sound in Leslie's house now.

And when I got home I had an e-mail from a friend in Lakeland that says there is one on Craig's List. She is trying to get him for us as well.

Leslie was telling me about these three but was worried that they wouldn't be released...I'm so happy they are all safe now and hopefully can now start to recover. Thanks for working so hard to get them out of doggie hell.

Did all 3 come from the same place?

Since my husband and I are on the pick up list we were able to get them out today.

As far as it goes right now I am waiting to hear from my contact in Lakeland on that IG. Hopefully she is able to get him.

I love the names you come up with Leslie, for all your babies:
Forest & Jenny - Forest Gump
Elwood and Jake - The Blues Brothers
Now the Tater Tot Triplets from Napoleon Dynamite

They are so cute, I could eat those Tater Tots up...the red boy is gorgeous. Thank you for all you do Leslie...where would Florida be without you?

Pedro looks like Alyssa.

Very fine looking little ones. Do you know why they were turned into the shelter? How sad, but now turned wonderful that they've found iggy people.

When we picked them up the paperwork said they were moving. they are so adorable. Would love to have kept the red one, but until we get more land that is not an option for us.
