Puppies and Worries

Sometimes Mom gets very depressed because every time they think they are getting on top of the situation and all the stuff we need here something bad happens. Today it was the car, which has something called a head gasket problem broke. It now has to go to a special place to be fixed. She needs something called donations to help with this problem because it will cost a lot. Meanwhile I have to tell you that more dogs arrived. Four more to be exact. They were going to be abandoned because their owner was moving and wouldn't take them. They already lived like abandoned dogs roaming free and dodging traffic. Dad had to pick them off the road and drive them home more than once. I watched them arrive. This was the first one. They called him Charlie.


He is quite thin.


Mom has already vaccinated him. Mom thinks he is this little fellows dad but we can't be sure.


 This little guy now called 'Dougal' arrived weighing just four kilos and had a mild eye infection, which is now better. Mom has vaccinated him too. They have all had worm medications and stuff for fleas. He has big ears. I think his ears account for at least a kilo of his weight. I asked him if he could fly?


He said he could fly and then took off!


So far nobody wants to adopt Charlie or Dougal. He feels sad because he wants his own family and he is just a baby. Mom says he is probably around ten weeks old and still wants to suck mom's finger because he misses his mom. Nobody knows who his mom is or where she is. 


This is another young puppy that came with the four. His name is Kipper. He has been adopted by someone in Canada and will be flying there soon. I heard about all the cold, white, powder they have there. They call it 'snow'. Mom says he will have a lovely life there and has a family waiting for him. 


This is Meg she is also a very young dog and came with the other three. She is also going to the place called Canada with all the snow.


The new dogs all make a lot of noise. They play all day like me, Gemma and Val.


All the other dogs wanted to meet the new puppies and sniff them. 


Dad built the new puppies a kennel. It isn't finished yet. 


Mom and Dad also saved this little kitten as well. He was adopted the same day. 


Nicki has been ill since her surgery. Her stitches split open and I couldn't even look it was horrible. I was very worried. Mom and Dad had to rush back to the vet clinic with her and she got sewn up again. 


Poor Nicki had to have a breast removed and has been wearing the awful plastic thing on her head since the first surgery. I can't look when mom cleans it because it has opened up again in two places. It makes me feel faint. The vet says it will heal. We just have to wait. 


Meanwhile there is another new dog coming here. She was found in the streets and has been waiting for two months for a new home at the vet clinic but so far hasn't had any luck. Mom and Dad are going to bring her here where she will join the puppies running around in their new kennel. 



This is her nose! She is beautiful. (Don't tell Gemma I said that) 


Guga seems better but also seems deaf as a post. I have to shout in his ear to get his attention.


Sol is on another diet. Mom told me and I had to turn away in case she saw me laughing!


I had a bit of trouble with the toys that were sent. You see they are all mine but the others don't understand this. I don't know why? What's there to understand? 



I had another bit of trouble because I wanted to sit on Dad's lap but I don't seem to fit so well anymore.


Then I had a bit more trouble. Val stole my blanket.


Obviously I had to sort that out quickly.


Oscar found something funny about all the trouble I had this week. 


Now Me and My girl sunbathing.

I am back again after a long break. Lots to Tell.

Hi Folks, I am back. Lots of stuff happening here. This place gets busier and busier. Mom was ill for a couple of days, but wouldn't let me post a picture of her in sick mode. Guga and Little One went to the vet clinic to see Dr Andre. Guga has an ear problem and you can't bark too loudly in his ear because he screams. He also has a UTI infection, so he has been very depressed this last week. He is getting better now. Little one has some eye drops to see if her eyesight will come back to normal. Both Guga and Little One peed on the floor at the vets. They have no class. I have stayed there and I have never done such a thing.


Here is Dr Andre inspecting Guga's ears.


Little One who is now blind awaited her turn.


Then the two of them messed up the clinic!

Then as I was looking out of the window one day because I heard Dad coming back I saw something odd.


There was a dog I had never seen before driving Dad's car.


I didn't know dog's were permitted to drive but now I do I think I will apply for my license. She is a hairy little dog and needs to shave because she seems to have a beard. She was living in a rubbish skip and didn't smell too good either. She made herself at home very quickly and her name is Val. She is very young and likes me and Gemma.


Mom was extremely stressed this week because the neighbors are moving and leaving behind seven animals there are four kittens and three dogs they say that they can't take them so they are just going to leave them to fend for themselves if mom doesn't take them. They live a pretty much abandoned life anyway and roam the streets scavenging for food. Mom is going to take all of them in because she received a donation from a kind person and can build a kennel for them and a house for the cats. Mom has somebody interested in adopting one of the dogs but nothing is certain yet.  Some humans have no moral conscience and just leave animals in the streets that is why most of us are here. Here are the seven animals who will be abandoned.


This one is just a puppy older than I was but still unable to fend for himself and not an ounce of  street sense



This one is an adult. Here you can see that poverty is rife still in Brazil.


Here are two of the four kittens.


Here is the brown one that Mom thinks she may have a home for. After seeing what happened to Val and to me and these seven and many more of us here. I have come up with an idea to form a vigilante group. We will be called the K9 Posse and we will go out and hunt down humans who abuse and abandon animals and bite their asses. In cases of cruelty like Nina we will take more drastic action; I spoke to the others about this and encountered a mixed reaction.


Nina who was abused looked very serious and said she would do anything to help to help other dogs avoid what she went through.


Gemma and Nicki listened intently and said count us in.


Xana asked for an office position because at 15 she is too old she said to go out in the streets.


Jessie looked very serious having been beaten on the head and abandoned and said 'I'm in"


Casper is in too. He can run fast after the bad humans.


Sam laughed and said she would go along for the ride. She lived in the streets long enough to know what I meant. 


Topi wanted to come but he understands he is not really fit for this as he still spins in circles when he is agitated. We excused him. 


Then I asked Sol and she was also keen to be a K9 Vigilante she told Oscar who span round immediately. He thought it was a great idea. 


He said he was ready to bite ass. He nearly died of starvation on a chain and Sol was abandoned as a young puppy and left ill in the streets so they too joined the group. 


Daisy was shocked and had been badly abused by humans so she was very keen. Now we have to plan our first move. If mom reads this she will put a block on my plans for sure. Emmy just popped by and told me I can't go ahead with it. She said dogs are supposed to be forgiving. I said "but why should we?" She said even humans are supposed to be that way and it won't help. I will hold a meeting of the K9 Posse and we will discuss this and take a vote. I will let you know what happens. Emmy just asked me who sent all the lovely toys and stuff this week? I said "I don't know a human I guess" She said there was my answer. Not all humans are bad. Some are very good. How will we know which humans to bite? What if we bite the wrong ones? Okay Emmy you win. We will call off our vigilante operations and we we meet the good humans we will lick their faces.  


Meanwhile here is me and my girl.
