What a busy day at the rescue, and yes, we accomplished so much on this beautiful “almost” Spring day. It seems we may have snow or rain in the next couple of days, so cleaned kennels, brushed dogs and completed so many tasks today that needed done. It is amazing what you can do without interruptions.
We needed a day with some positive happenings after finding out that the Village of Walthill was going to rescind the “No Kill” ordinance and go back to destroying some of the dogs in the pound. We are working with them to hopefully help the situation–and in the mean time have been contacted by a couple of rescues that want to help. Now if the condition of the pound were that easy. We are hoping that they will be able to get the heater going again, find some proper bedding and be able to fix the sewer problem. Just some of the obstacles that the village will need to correct to keep dogs there.
But that is the not so good news, but we do have some good news to share. Brandy was adopted last week, and is doing well. We have all the puppies gone from the St. Bernard/Shepherd and Shepherd Beagles. We have been blessed with good families almost every day coming to look at dogs and get the word out. We named 4 new dogs to place on line. One young male is adorable. He was surrendered, and appears to have some Burmese Mountain Dog in his background. I will have new pictures soon. His feet are HUGE and he looks like he is 3 months old. Our little black Lab gal is around 8 weeks old and I finally settled on the name Molasses. I will call her Molly for short. She is growing so fast, and we are waiting to make sure she is healthy from her last vaccination. We have a sweet Chow mix female that is young, but has had one litter. And the most exciting is our beautiful collie that was given to us for adoption. His name is Alex, and he has papers showing his bloodline. He is shy but wants so badly to find a home with a family to spend time with.
Besides the dog rescue activities, we are in the midst of scraping wallpaper off the living room walls. Not a dull moment at the Brigg’s farm for sure. Need to run and get back to scraping, but we still have other dogs that I didn’t mention, so don’t forget to check out petfinder.com and 12 Hills Dog Rescue Facebook. This time of year we are always full of puppies and other great dogs.
