BILL ANNOUNCES: Straydog Radio Show covering the events of Tuesday, March 28, 2016. Bill and Juana here with the Tuesday report.
JUANA: It was a good day. First thing in the morning, we had an appointment to take puppy Ophelia to the vet. We have talked about her. We rescued her, because she was being abused, and we took her to the clinic and left her there for several days. When Dr. James sent her home, he said that he wanted to see her again on this Tuesday the 28th. George went to get her to take her to the vet and she’s just so very sweet. We would never raise our voices to her and she’s learning to trust us. We are now able to hug and kiss her. She’s a beautiful baby. George was carrying her out to the van to take her to see Dr. James.
I can tell you what happened that day at the vet. The doctor did a fecal exam and she didn’t have any parasites. She still had bloody diarrhea and we’ve tried Metronidazole and Clavamox and she was still having the same problem. The doctor wanted to try Albon, which treats Coccidia. He didn’t see any Coccidia parasites, but sometimes they are hard to see. He wanted to try her on Albon for a few days and see if she got better, before he tried another antibiotic. We will report on her as we go. She’s such a sweet, sweet baby.
We had a full crew and we were able to do all of our kennel work.
Catherine is back, but not full-time. She loves being a waitress. I asked for help on Facebook and I didn’t realize what a big impact Facebook could have for our shelter. Within one hour, I had 78 people interested. It was incredible. Catherine saw my FB post and she messaged me. She saw that we really needed help. She knows the routine here at Straydog and she was a really good employee, but she also enjoys being a waitress. She said that she could help occasionally, because she’s only working as a waitress a few nights a week. She’s already trained and she could just come in and work and that’s a big plus. We really appreciate her help. We are so happy to have her back with us. There’s Catherine in Pat Arnold Park with Nelson and Ebony.
There’s George Jr. working in kennels.
Maci was working in kennels here.
There’s a beautiful picture of the Pat Arnold Park sign. Catherine was walking Mr. Friendly and Polly to the park.
Linda and Tom Arnold, Linda and David Rentz, David Bonski and some of our other wonderful volunteers and Straydoggies too, attended the DFW Auto Show at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center from this past Wednesday through Sunday. It was a big success as always. On Saturday, we had a great application on Lizzy and three applications on puppy Elliott. On Friday, we had an application on Chester and then we got an application on PoPo.
We reviewed the application on Lizzy right away and it was excellent. It was from a family with a stay-at-home mom with two other dogs. We told them about Lizzy’s separation anxiety and they fell in love with Lizzy. We know that Lizzy gets along with all other dogs, but we still did a home visit to see if Lizzy and their dogs would get along. David Rentz came to Straydog and got Lizzy and went to Arlington and took care of this home visit. Lizzy’s kennelmate Ricky will now be by himself, but we will find him another playmate.There’s Ricky with Lizzy. He’s on the left.
I got some more pictures on my phone of the home visit and adoption and David got some pictures on his phone too. We will include those as well.
We have a new employee, who is a very quick learner. This was only her fourth day and she was walking dogs to the Shirley Olsen Beemer Park by herself. Her name is Marissa. There’s Marissa with Mickey and Minnie in the Beemer Park.
I was walking around with the camera and, as soon as Mickey saw me, he ran to me.
Mickey and Minnie are so beautiful.
There’s David getting Lizzy out of her kennel to go on her home visit.
Roscoe was in the park and he wasn’t listening to Catherine.
I turned around with the camera. He wanted to go after Lizzy, because all of the dogs were making such a commotion, because we were trying to get Lizzy out of her kennel, when Roscoe was in the park. It got all of the dogs upset. It was time for Roscoe to go back to his kennel, but he wouldn’t listen to Catherine.
But Catherine got Roscoe and there’s David with Lizzy.
This is a beautiful picture of Lizzy taking her last look at Straydog. She was adopted!
There’s beautiful Lizzy. She has gorgeous eyes and beautiful markings.
She was a stray, who walked up to the property of Stacey’s friends. Stacey is Bill’s daughter. Her rescuers travel all of the time and they didn’t have a fenced yard. They have a big ranch out in the country. They fostered her for a long time until she was adopted to the first family. They returned her, because she had separation anxiety and they were working. We didn’t know that she had separation anxiety. She was breaking out of her crate and trying to get out of the yard. She had a beautiful home. They had other pets and she got along perfectly with them. She was just so anxious, when her humans weren’t there, and they had to return her to Straydog. She was adopted again by one of our contributors and they returned her, because she wasn’t the right fit for them. We think the third time will be the charm for sweet Lizzy. This mom is a stay-at-home mom and we now knew what her background was and we could tell this family her pros and cons. We think that this will be her forever home, because she’s been there a few days now.
BILL: We’ll be back gain tomorrow with another report from Straydog.
