It's that time again! The annual fundraiser and huge adoption event hosted by SNIPSA is upon us. Come on out this Saturday, September 26 to race, check out the pet fair, adoption event, and just show support for the cause. Lots of fun to be had by all! For more information, go to: www.snipsa.org
What's a dog blog without a random cat post thrown in? Adam was "ordered" by his commander to rescue a kitty outside their building. "She" stayed in Adam's bathroom for a couple weeks, and now someone is fostering this sweet kitty. Apparently, "she" is actually a he. Haha. He was not too fond of dogs, but after some training with Adam and a couple of our dogs he does just fine. His new bff is a 100-pound doggy.
Godiva was recently adopted by a wonderful couple from Austin. We could not have chosen a more perfect home for her. We also saw Stormy girl after we did Godiva's initial home visit. She looks AWESOME! All her fur grew back in, and she is a sleek black doggy now. Hooray for two successful adoptions!
Reina was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) on Friday, August 7, 2009 upon Adam's return to San Antonio from his vacation out east. We were devastated by the news, and we have done everything to make her comfortable and happy during the remaining time that she has left with us. Adam has taken it especially hard, and he has also done so much to make her feel loved in her last days.
With Reina we have achieved what we had intended to - to give her a family that she so deserved. Even in her old age she learned to befriend other dogs, even loving them and developing deep bonds with them. We have loved her dearly, and she has been a joy in our lives. She's given us more than we could give her. She will be profoundly missed when she is gone.
