Tricia, thank you.

Sam is already picking up weight.  Mike bathed them both - they smelled like they'd been rolling in dead animals! We've had them crated at night in pole barn and moved crates into garage last nite  because of rain.  They barked and howled at first when crated in barn - last night, not a peep.  They run loose in our fenced back yard during the day.  Two older dog are separated and kept in front yard - they spend a lot of time in the house snoozing.  In  person intros have been made with smaller dog, Scooter.  All went well.  Because Gracie, the Catahoula, has an aggressive side, we're taking it slowly but I was impressed with her response yesterday.  Had her harnessed and leashed for control and she didn't go into killer mode as she did when first meeting Goldie.  Maybe because these are relative babies.  We shall see.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, too!

Patty, thank you and thanks for letting me know about October, too!
 

There are too many people with an irresponsible cruel streak.  They have always existed and with the economy so challenging, there are more incidents of abandoned animals every day.  It truly is heartbreaking and frustrating.  From following many local rescue groups and rescuers, I know the local area animal shelters are all full and not accepting any more.  When people get desperate and have nowhere to turn, they feel justified when they just dump their problems for someone else to handle.  It is disgusting.  But, these two are  safe.

Hi Linda: just donated: nowhere to indicate I am with FOB

Oh, those doggies knew what house to go to-- they could not have picked any more loving better doggie parents. You are amazing and as you say, so many people are just plain cruel.

Take care

Hi Linda

I'm catching up now and just sent my donation through PayPal. I've known about this rescue for a while and I'm happy we are supporting them.

Aw, you are such an angel to the animals! These two new pups must feel they have found heaven. Thank you for keeping them safe!

Thank you, Amy.  We've donated twice before to this group.  They do good work.

Have come to conclusion dogs this age are meant for young people!!!   They are exhausting.  The brown boy is an old soul and very easy going.  The black girl?  Not so much.  They've done pretty well in their crates at night.  We've introduced them to the other two dogs.  The oldest one, Gracie, was a worry but she has been handling the newbies really well.  Here's a photo I took earlier today.  They now have access to front and back yard.  I sat out on the porch with them as they experienced everything for first time.  I removed all chewable objects and hung a basket from the ceiling to hold a leash and my rain shoes.  He gets a final wormer tomorrow.  She gets spayed on Tuesday (prayers, please, she doesn't go into heat before then).  He goes in Thursday for booster and rabies - he was in too poor condition to do it at first visit.  Then I'll set up neuter appt for him.   See?  I'm exhausted!!!

Aw, they are both so cute! I don't remember how old they are?

It really is lots of work to take care of young dogs and give them the health care and training that they need. But my guess is once they mature some, they will be a couple of wonderful companions.

Good luck with the spay surgery of course. I think all will be well. Thank you for giving them care and a happy home. I was struck by what you said about them experiencing everything for the first time. They are on a fun journey of discovery!

Hang in there and know that you are doing such good by them!

Amy, based on their teeth, vet estimated they're 8 months old.  Still full of all that puppy exuberance.  I can't help but laugh at the accuracy of the joke as told from a dog's perspective "My name is NoNoNo dammit NO!!"    I find myself saying no a lot!!
