Rescue Me Week
We are participating in Mayzie's Rescue Me Week. Most of this post will be copied and pasted from one of our local rescue organizations, Wayside Waifs. Mom is still having lots of discomfort and typing is quite the challenge. But we didn't want to miss out on a chance to help.
Meet Wonkie! Isn't he just so adorable! Wonkie is a black and white Havanese mix, about 2 1/2 years old, neutered, and currently in a foster home. He would love to find a wonderful forever home. Here is some background on Wonkie in his own words.
Hi! I'm Mr. Wonkie, cute as a button and full of personality. I am a two and half year old, 11 pound, partially housetrained Havanese mix, searching for a brand new home. I came in as a stray, shy and fearful of everyone I met. And I've made great progress during my stay here at Wayside, although I'm still working out some of my issues and I do need a special sort of home with special people.
Well, some here think that I might not have always been treated in a friendly manner in the past. I get real nervous when you take my collar or leash off...I'm very sensitive around my neck area. And it takes me just awhile to learn to trust you and bond with you. Lucky for everyone, the Wayside staff knew to go slow with me, let me take my time getting used to my new environment, and slowly, I started to love them and trust them. That's when a whole new side of me appeared! I can be a fun and wiggly lap dog. I can love and feel happy and enjoy life! It just takes me a little time, that's all. I've already learned to sit for my treats and it makes me so happy when I see people smile because of me.
I'm looking for a home with patient people, who will allow me to go slow and learn to feel safe. I haven't felt that way before. I would love positive reinforcement when I do good. It teaches me what you want and expect from me and I'm happy to oblige. I will do best in a home without kids under the age of 18 years old, since their unpredictable movements are very scary to me. A quiet and calm home would be perfect for me. And if you take the time to bond with me, I promise to make it worth your while! I will be a fun, happy, and loyal companion to you.
So when are you coming out to meet me? I'm here and I'm ready to go home. Just say the word.
We all think Wonkie deserves a great home so he can continue his progress and make some humans very happy.

Pee Ess - a quick update on the patients. Lightning is healing well and is more than ready to get back to the wild ways of a pup, but he is on restricted activity for another week. The Momster is still struggling with the pain, but doing the best she can. She is not a sit-still-and-rest sort of person, so this is not fun for her at all. We have her sitting now with a bag of frozen peas on her arm and a few pups at her feet.
