Dog houses and Joey's New Diet

Well it has been a strange week here. Lots of rain and Guga became famous on Care2 http://www.care2.com/causes/beloved-old-street-dog-is-rescued-just-before-huge-mudslide.html Joey has started eating money and dad is still building dog houses. First here is Joey.

Mom lost this ten Reais note and thought it was gone forever. Then she found it in the botom of the washing machine all wet. She put it in a safe place to dry and the wind must of blown it off the shelf into Joey's mouth. Mom looked everywhere for the missing corner but she couldn't find it. She thinks it is inside Joey's stomach somewhere. Without the missing corner the bank won't swap it, so mom wasn't that pleased about his new liking for money. Dad has finished the big dog house for Cassie Freddy and Little one. He is now painting one for Daisy and Topi's kennel, which will be ready tonight.   

They seem to like the house and Freddy won't have to sleep in the plastic drum anymore with his rear end hanging out. They still have many to make and dad will continue with the work until the wood runs out. Mom and dad had to go out this week on a long drive to sort out some of the charity status stuff. They saw a sad abandoned dog in the middle of nowhere. The guy painting white lines on the road side stopping place said the dog had been there two days after someone left him there. Bad humans do this. Mom felt terrible, but she just can't take him-- there aren't enough kennels here for all the dogs here and she can't tie him to a tree. She just doesn't have any means of taking one more right now. He looked in quite good condition right now, but there is no food supply where he is. He is seventy miles from where we are, so she can't even go and feed him daily. She says if a miracle occurs she will go right back and pick him up. He may have moved on by now though.

We all felt upset and annoyed about this situation. Poor guy was there when Mom and Dad passed early in the day and still waiting when they came back hours later. He obviously thinks the bad human will come back for him. We all know different here. Bad humans don't change. Mom also took some photos of the mountains.

and this beautiful purple tree

Joey is busy helping dad right now. He is showing Dad where to cut the wood with his paw.

Mom finally got a good picture of Panda who hates cameras.

Here is Sam with her winter hair style!

And Trooper

Well life goes on here. Mom says it's a battle!

I'm sorry that you're faced with the awful contrast of the beauty of nature and the terrible nature of some humans.

The abandoned dog does appear in good shape. I just hope that his current looks lead to someone taking him in and giving him the life he deserves.

Meanwhile, your rescues are looking so beautiful in your pics. And I love the houses - dad is doing such a great job on them!

Hope the pack has a great weekend! Give the famous Guga an extra hug for me!

Glad the doghouses are getting built. We are so sorry for the poor doggie that got abandoned. We are purring his story has a Happy Ending and that someone will be able to rescue him and give him a loving home.

What you're doing is so wonderful. We read about Guga on Care2. We have two rescued mutts of our own and know how it breaks your heart when you can't take another in because it would stretch things too far. Dogs are such wonderful creatures; please keep doing your amazing work.

Take care--
