Mr Edgar Poe, mini Diablo with the golden heart is searching after his own family. Mr Edgar is a super fun character.
He was found very sick, left to die when found by one of our great volunteers.
I am like a grumpy old man, I can make my volunteers crazy and the clients even more crazy. But that is who I am….Gods charm to everyone–well if you are a good animal psychologist.
I love children, they are pure. But if I don’t like an adult, I show it and I mean….I show it.
Ok, who the hell put this on me? I am not a drag dog!
But I am looking for a home so if you are into Pink, I am fine with that! That’s Amore.
Mia, the little cute wild puppy that was fostered by Martina had been into a small play accident. Mia is a tough 4-month old cookie and loves to wrestle with the big dogs. This day she got her ear bitten. A few stitches and then it was that horrible cone on her head that she didn’t like, of course (who would?)
I took it off right away since we would be with her 24/7 and could keep an eye on her. We released Martina and Pio from this little cute monster, they sure needed a break.
Mia was excellent at the hotel AGORA (who are supporters to AWL.) Mia had to follow us everywhere we went, a very good practice. And Minna was a great puppy-sitter Thank you dear!
It was great to come back to the hospice, Casa dell’Amore, to meet all the old clients and the new ones. Ombra, the English Setter was afraid for the steps and the great volunteers carried him down and up every time he needed to go out. I had the evening shift and could not for my life carry this guy. I knew he had not been neutered and we had one female in heat at the Hospice. I let her out first, and then Ombra. He flew down the stairs like a bird, then up and down, up and down like a Don Juan.
It was good to be back to Casa dell’Amore!
Ariel had been in four different shelters and her front leg had been broken in four places and self healed wrong. She can walk, but very poorly.
Ariel had to stay at our hospice in Italy for a little while during to our move up North, but last week I could drive down and bring her up. She is a 12 year old wonderful lady with some back problems due to her previously broken leg. As she hobbles, she puts stress on her other joints in ways they were never meant to be… and consequently, she now has problems in her front shoulders and back hips. But with x-rays and medicine, we are keeping a very close eye on that.
Dr Damiani made an examination, x-ray and we also had her pet passport made. (You can see how her right front leg is set at a radically wrong angle.)
Thank you all who looked after my Ariel. Martina and Pio for picking her up, and all the lovely volunteers for loving up on her. Valerie drove her to the groomer and have also been her nail trimmer. You all make a difference and with love for those whom loves you back. That’s Amore.
We got some new comers that are so wonderful in our Hospice Casa dell’Amore. Mister Vasili is one of them. German Shepard, probably 9 years old. He had an owner that tied him several years ago outside a Governmental shelter. Since then he has been inside a cage very sick and in pain.
He is a lovely male that follows and loves to play with balls. He will, when healthy become a great companion. He is on antibiotic since his whole body was full of wounds. Now he is being treated for Leischamania zyloric and Milteforan. Already we see a great improvement.
Sweet pie Ms Funny, also from the same shelter. Found behind a tombstone, and they say she was grieving her dead master. She is happy and today outside in the sun she was running around wagging her tail.
Ms Funny outside in the sun. No one of our dogs at the Hospice are in cages.
Our long term clients, Stella and Sassi. We would love to find a home for Sassi.
Ms Funny got her AWL tag with phone number in case she gets lost. Sponsored by the Kleber family in LA USA.
Ms Funny looks like an African bush dog.
Ariel, our wonderful old girl. You can see her right front-leg is bent like a Charley Chaplin leg. It was broken in four places and selfhealed. She has been in four different shelters. She is a cuddle bug.
This is Mr Poe. Found sick in a dark street (see earlier blog) Now in the AWL Hospice. He is a funny guy. Every time you look at him he growls. He is our grumpy man.
It’s cold in our hospice so our clients are wearing fashion warm clothing’s Layla is soon going to her furever home in Sweden.
Dusty freezing. She is also soon going to her furever home in Sweden
Puppies abandon by mom, now rescued and fostered in a warm bathroom. Up for adoption!
