Another week has gone by, or has it been longer?  Time is passing so quickly, seems like one can never keep up with things.  Besides being busy with the house and trying to keep us critters happy, Mom hasn’t had much time for her painting or crafts.  Chuy is still swimming every 2 weeks, but that may end next month as the weather is getting cool and a wet dog in cool weather isn’t a good idea.  He has been going to the park once a week and walking up and down hills.  Good muscle and co-ordination building therapy.

We went to PetSmart on Saturday and Mom bought 4 Ger. Shep. puppies.  There was a family selling them in the parking lot at the PetSmart. When we got there to visit the rescue that saved Chuy, one of the rescues had already bought 3 pups from them. They told mom that there was one left and that they wanted it at the shelter, but the family wouldn’t sell it to them. So, silly mom, left Chuy with the rescue and went out to see if she could get it. They had 4 pups! She called the rescue and they said she would take them all, so mom bought all 4 and brought them to the rescue at PetSmart. These pups were about 8 wks. old and covered with ticks. So, now the shelter has 7 Ger. Shep. puppies. Just couldn’t see them winding up with tick fever and I know the shelter will take care of them. Mom felt so bad and yet good at the same time. Chuy wanted to play with them, he loves puppies, but with the ticks and no vaccines, we couldn’t let him.  He did get to play with his friends Rosie and Dusty though.  They still remember Chuy from when he lived at the rescue.  It’s so amazing what they can remember!

That same night Mom got an e-mail from the rescue telling her that all 7 puppies were bathed, fed and vaccinated.  Sleeping in a big furball pile.  It was probably the first time they had ever been indoors and warm.  We really wanted to keep one, but we’re dealing with enough here.

Tomorrow we’re going back to PetSmart for a Halloween party.  Chuy’s dressing up as a Lifeguard.  I’ll try to post pictures when I can.

Chuy is a 1 yr. old Chow/Newfie/Husky/Beagle mix. He has already lost his left frt. leg due to being hit by a car at 4 mos. old. We adopted him when he was 8 mos. old. He has now had FHO surgery on his left rear leg.

  2. SEVEN GSDs, wow, what a beautiful thought! Codie Rae would certainly whip them into shape in no time.

    Your Mom is a real saint!! Thank you for saving the puppies.

    And Chuy, hoppy ampuversary tomorrow!!!! Wooo hoo, get out there and celebrate!!!

  3. Hey Chuy

    Surely Jerry and CR can figure out some way for you to talk your mum into getting you SEVEN GSD as playmates. Is your birthday or a big ampuversary coming up? Hey, Jerry says it is, so now she HAS to get you those puppies!

    Pretty darn nice of your Mom to take them to the shelter, even if she is not quite nice enough to give them to you.

  4. That is so awesome that you bought 4 puppies! You should feel great knowing that you have saved their lives. I hope the rescue updates you soon and lets you know that they have found wonderful homes!

    Glad to hear that Chuy is doing well!

    Kristin and Toto
