Rosie started having the runs, refused to eat and lost what little weight she put back on. Trip to vet resulted in diag. of hooks!!!!!Arrrgh! That means worming for 7 dogs, 2 of which are 85 lbs (retired racers). My vet Rose, namesake, gave Rosie an appetite stimulant, meds to ease her stomach/gut soreness and I have her on Pepcid. Wow, this girl is now eating ...a lot and much more perky (side effect of the stimulant which is used for chemo patients) Lets hope this turns her around.

Skippy, the broken boy is in his new foster home, had his splint removed and is undergoing daily hydrotherapy in the pool. As you can imagine, his leg is atrophied from lack of use, the skin pretty nasty and his elbow stiff from holding it up all this time. His foster mom Stephanie adores this very sweet boy as he is so good and such a clown.

Linda will go down to Camp Steph and take a video of Skippy's pool session. We are ready to get a forever home lined for the boy. I have had one inquiry which we'll pursue.

And that the way it is.

I am so happy to hear about Rosie and how she is eating...what a struggle it was just to get her to eat out of my hand while she was here. If she could put on a few pounds it would make all the difference in her appearance. She is such a stunning lady. Of course....Steph is so wonderful with any dog she fosters...jumps into it 100%. I can't wait to see Skippy and Steph in the pool for his therapy tomorrow.
