|Batgirl's new pink ribbon collar|
First on the agenda is a spay/neuter. Batgirl was spayed before she went to Spindletop, but Angel and Amber were not altered even though extra payment was issued to Leah Purcell to fix them.

Knowing once they have surgery, they'll not get that much needed bath, I made a much needed dog treat run to Target. After four trips to Conroe and back to try and reclaim the dogs, this was kind of fun. I was enjoying a fun aspect of rescue work for a change. The buyer for Target get's a check plus in the accessories department. I found Batgirl a pink striped ribbon collar and a royal and powder blue striped one for Johnny Angel. Amber's is perfect for her in a bright red brocade.
After a good raw dinner with Johnny Angel finishing his bowl for the first time...he was a hard sell....they got good sudsy baths, After drying them and adjusting their brand new collars, I was in for an amazing experience. Anyone who's ever rescued a dog knows when they get a brand new collar, one that no one else has ever worn with other dog smells, something happens. They turn on like a twinkling star in the heavens.
Amber and Johnny Angel have their appointments to be spayed and neutered this morning at Emancipet in Austin. They'll be microchipped and dosed with Arnica homeopathic remedy to help them move safely through the surgeries.
I'll dose them again this evening when I pick them
up. They are on their way. Amber has an interested couple as an adoption prospect already. They are a couple adopting their first pet and have already pored over the Reunion website and program They are committed to feeding a raw food diet and treating homeopathically. Who wouldn't want a guarantee of no heartworm, no fleas and no cancer?
Johnny Angel has been spoken for as well. Once he's recovered from his neuter, he'll be on his way to Barbara and Miss Murmur adopted from Reunion three and a half years ago from the high kill Bakersfield, California shelter. Here we go. It's up and down in the world of rescue. It's not a life for the faint of heart. But we can make it. Batgirl, Amber and Johnny Angel are teaching me how it's done.
Batgirl says don't take it all too seriously.
