Friday

Freddy went to the vet and now is clear of mange. He still has a problem with his paw with a thing called a hotspot. Nicki went back to the vet to because she has some type of trauma. If you touch her head a lot she screams and mom thought it was her ears, so back again. Dr Antonio thinks she remembers some kind of trauma because he could not find anything wrong with her. We don't know what happened, so we are going slowly touching her head little by little. Other than this she seems happy.  Yesterday mom and dad were in Teresopolis where things are not so good. Eight dogs died and one puppy died in mom's arms. She was very sad when she got back. Distemper has started in the shelter and lots of giardia too. Tomorrow they are going back again.

I'm very sorry to hear that disease is spreading in the shelter, Emmy. Mom is very brave to comfort the sick and dying, even though it must break her heart. Give her a hug for us.

Glad to hear Freddy's rid of mange. He's been looking more and more handsome in every photo! I'm sure you have the right idea going slow with Nicki ... maybe Pebbles could put her hat on and show Nicki? We bet that would make her smile!
