We can't believe how fast the holidays have come and gone this year. It was an awesome time for our entire family, 2 leggers and 4 leggers!
But now, all the festivities are over and back to the daily grind of being retired puggies. At least we have the excitement of have our 1st foster sister, Miss Daisy, with us for a time.
Here's a picture of the 3 of us waiting patiently for a treat!

and we all got one, too!
Hu-mom here: Miss Daisy had her vet check up yesterday. She was negative for heart worms!!! Yes, YES. I was really worried about that because of her severe breathing problems. She was positive for Lyme's but we knew that. She also got a rabies shot since there was no record of it in her previous life. She has a mass in her left ear that blocks air flow into the ear. The vet said it was probably from years of ear infections and part of the ear swelled up. So Daisy is on antibiotic for the bacterial infection and daily cleaning and ear medicine. Her heart sounded good. The vet is almost 100% sure her breathing problem is from an Elongated Soft Palate and very small nose holes (she didn't call them that, I just don't remember what she called them!)
And she needs to be spayed. The surgeries can take place about 2 weeks after her heat bleeding stops. We are hoping they can do all the procedures at the same time including the palate and nose, ear, spay, insert microchip.
We are waiting for approval from the rescue folks for everything.
One of my blog friends asked us how will we be able to give Miss Daisy up for adoption after falling in love with her? Well, we need to focus on the big picture. Miss Daisy will go to a new forever home. Then we will be able to take in another rescue and give the new rescue our love, time, attention and stable home. It's kind of exciting to see the transformation of these wonderful pugs! But we won't guarantee there won't be tears...the circle of life for fosters.
Have a great week,
Minnie : )
