On June 15th, we lost little Doug, an 8 week old puppy who was shot 3 times with one bullet lodged in his spinal cord leaving him permanently paralyzed and his lower organs not functioning. Jenny and I were there with him, holding him as he crossed over Rainbow Bridge. We got a text yesterday that his ashes are in .. Jenny is going to pick up little Doug's ashes after work today. I will keep his ashes along with the ashes of others we have lost.
And yesterday at 7:47, Jenny and I received an email from Karen Good of Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. I will always be indebted and grateful to Karen Good for rescuing and leading me to my sweet Ahnung.
Hi Marilou and Jen :
We just concluded a neuter/spay clinic yesterday and when we were leaving the warehouse (vet had left) a boxer/pit mix (we named Hope) was brought to the warehouse who had been in labor 2 days sitting in the back of a truck in the rain. She had green slime seeping out of 2 holes in her mammary glands. She had 2 pups that were dead previously the owner said.

Poor Hope was surrendered in very serious condition and we went to the emergency vet in Gonvick MN where the vet opened her up and removed 4 dead puppies and there were 3 still living. Her embryotic fluid was green and foul smelling.
Hope is malnourished and after the pups were taken out- she is VERY skinny.
Hope remains at the vet on antibiotics IV and fluid IV this morning.
We are hoping hoping to find a place for Hope and her 3 surviving pups who are now being syringe fed and have a strong desire to live. The vet thinks that if Hope lives she may be able to nurse them if
Hope is a very sweet girl. She is a miracle and we hope you can take her.
