Update: Mistletoe, a Rescue Dog

Share
Several regular readers have emailed and posted comments asking about Mistletoe, a spaniel-terrier mix who was rescued some weeks ago. You can read more about this dog's ordeal of abuse and neglect at the earlier post, but suffice to say Mistletoe had it pretty rough for a few weeks.

Anyways, Mistletoe is doing much, much better. All of her sores have healed, her itching is under control, her ear infections have cleared up, and she had her teeth cleaned. Even better, hair is slowly but surely growing back on the half of her body that was once hairless and raw, and Mistletoe no longer looks like she went through a chipper-shredder.

More importantly, a kind couple decided to adopt Mistletoe, and it looks like she will have a new home tomorrow. Of course, I will shed a few tears over this sweet dog, who is one of the gentlest and most affectionate dogs you could ever meet.

Thanks again to all who extended financial help for Mistletoe's care, especially regular visitor MadJack. About $400 was raised to help with Mistletoe's vet bills, and she will go to her new home with all of her medical issues either under control or fixed. Also, while discussing philanthropy, follow this link to donate to Planned Pethood if you have a few bucks you want to put to a worthy cause.

Ah-HA!

The rest of you take note that I, MadJack, got special honorary mention by HistoryMike, owner and author of this fine community service.

Let's be showing a little more respect around here...

I'm glad to learn that Mistletoe is in good health and is getting a nice home.
