Update: Missy, A Rescued Terrier

Several folks have emailed me regarding the status of Missy, a female terrier mix we are fostering. You can read the earlier posts about Missy's abusive former owners if you want to know the background of this abused dog.

We were worried about a abdominal lump we noticed recently on Missy, and the vet decided to operate on her. Luckily the lump turned out to be benign, one of those run-of-the-mill lipomas that generally cause no problems. After Missy gets out her sutures, she will be back to her old routines of chasing squirrels and hogging the human affection.

Anyways, thanks to all of you who have donated to Planned Pethood - especially regular blog visitor MadJack and several anonymous donors - as every donation helps dogs like Missy get a second chance on life. You can also visit the Planned Pethood site to learn about adopting Missy or any other rescue dog or cat.

That's such good news. Our dogs, except for one, have all been rescue dogs.

I think that they really appreciate being loved and having a safe place to - well, just be dogs :-)

It's amazing how attached you get to them.

Mike - thanks for the update on Missy! She is such a little sweetie - she looks happy.

Bless you and yours for opening your homes and hearts to these animals that are SO ready to love unconditionally.
