It's Back to the Daily Grind

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!

Minnie, Miss Daisy, Mack

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 : )

Miss Daisy is a little doll. Our Momma failed horribly at being a foster mom. Dat's how our pack got to be so big. Butt we all wouldn't survive without each other...every one of us.

Gracie Lynn had to have her nares enlarged and her soft palate trimmed at K-State Veterinary hospital. Miss Daisy will do just fine...especially when they send her home with Rimadyl. You all are so great to foster. I know I couldn't foster because I have 5...and probably would want to keep all the fosters. :)
God Bless and Happy New Year!!
Much Luvums,
Mama Mindy & George, Gracie, Toby, Lily, and Mimi

You are wonderful folks to be a foster home for such needy four legged friends.

With deep respect,

Hi Minnie, Mack and Miss Daisy! I agree that the holidays went by too fast, Mum and Dad both had to go back to work today, they were sad to leave me this morning but Mum came home first and took me for an hour long walk and told me she had already booked leave from work for this year so that we can spend time together going on adventures! I'm glad Miss Daisy is well and settling in to your family, Mum wishes she lived near you because she would adopt her in a heartbeat! Mum wants a new brother or sister for me but we need to twist Dads arm! I really hope that she can have everything done at once and she gets through it all wonderfully! Pug Paws crossed prayers and good healthy healing juju coming your way! Love, Licks and Big Pug Hugs from your friend Frank x x x x x x x

You fostering experiences sound wonderful. Those pups who come to your house are very lucky.

pawhugs, Max

I'm so glad you all got a treat. Mack looks especially cute waiting for it. Xoxo. Oh, sorry. Where was I? Well, I'm happy to hear miss Daisy got a good report.
It's going to seem like Xmas for a while here still. Not sure when the tree and decorations will come down. My mom got a cold, but luckily it's after vacation and holidays.

Your comittment to rescue and foster is great. After my experience with Bingo, our foster who we adopted and who died in Movember of 2010, I dont think I can foster again. I get so attached and my husband too. Of course we had Bingo as a foster for 7 months before we officially adopted him. He had lots and lots of health problems and after being with us for so long I didnt think it was fair to move him. Ms. Daisy is such a cutie if all her surgeries go well I bet she finds a great home fast

Mom and Dad fostered Greyhounds for a couple of years before Lilac moved in and decided she wasn't moving out. I hear that the best feeling is seeing the foster pups with their forever people! Miss Daisy is lucky to have you right now!


Wilma said...

Oh what a sweet girl Miss Daisy is. We hope all of her procedures come off without a hitch and she finds her best forever home. Happy New Year.

Sometimes the daily grind can be good but I miss when people come over and especially the stuff the crumbs they drop of the floor.

So glad that Miss Daisy is heartworm negative! That's huge! We wish her good luck on her surgery. She'll breath so much better after she gets nose job! We had our stenotic nares widened too. Mom recommends the donut collar instead of the cone though. The e-collars that we got made us trip and pop our nose stitches.

It is hard being a foster but Miss Daisy will find a new home lickety split. And yes, it will hurt for a while, but knowing that she's going to a great home that will love her and cherish her makes it easier. You're a great family for doing it, even for just one dog.

Miss Daisy is so adorable!


bichonpawz said...

Miss Daisy is very cute! The reason mama doesn't foster is because we wouldn't have a house big enough for all of the fosters that would find our home to be their forever home! Bless you for what you do!

Aww Ms. Daisy! I hope your ears get better soon. So nice of Minnie and Mack for taking care of you. Thanks, Hu-mom you are wonderful for the time and effort on Ms.Daisy. You are right, there will be tears but tears of happiness for the new forever home that will love daisy unconditionally and take care of her pug-butt!

I think Miss Daisy is a very lucky little pug! Happy new year. :)

Thanks so much for helping Miss Daisy. I hope she is soon fully recovered and in her forever home!

Hi! We came by from the Blog Hop and we are happy to meet you! We think you are doing a very nice thing for Miss Daisy and we are glad to know she is in good hands! Oh, and don't be offended by our 'Pug' comment on our Saturday post...Teri loves pugs and well, our Disco resembles a fat one...that's all and he's on a diet but it's not working so well so far...

Tegan said...

Good luck with all of Miss Daisy's problems. I hope she is fighting fit and ready for her new home soon. :)

Vito's Hu-Mom here: thank you, thank you, thank you for fostering! It is the hardest, saddest, funnest (that's not a word), most rewarding job in the world! (I say this as someone with no hu-children) I'm so sorry we missed out on this journey with you! But so glad that you are going to keep it up after a break. Breaks are necessary. But I've found myself wanting another foster as soon as I give one up. ;) We are on "official" foster break now after foster-failing with Vinny, only because he had so many vet visits I needed to do so for my job. ;) But now I've opened up to temporary fostering - just for a few days - to get me through wanting another foster and also really helping the rescue when there are timing issues. Although only keeping a pug for 3 days isn't easy either. I fall in love with them in only a few minutes. :) Pugs are the greatest and i love your rescue's motto: "Let no pug go unloved."

Can't wait to hear about your next foster! (Yes we are reading backwards)
