Moose was very sick and in the hospital until this evening. Now he and his brother, Bear are at another vet boarding through the weekend when I get back from Santa Barbara.
The boarding vet tried to convince me that since Moose needed to be watched the twins should be boarded separately. I convinced them that my Bear, alone without his brother would go totally neurotic and take their building down. And so they are rooming together. That's best. They cuddle and clean each other's ears and fall asleep snuggling.
They are so funny. My twins. I rescued their mommy when she was pregnant in Feb 2001. 10 days later she had 7 puppies in my garage. BIG puppies. They all survived despite what she'd been through and all ended up with fantastic homes thanks to a rescue group that helped me out.
To the best of my memory (as an adult anyway), I think I've rescued 32 dogs. Thankfully always found their homes or great new homes for them. Usually within 2 weeks. People should put collars and tags on their dogs, they are much more likely to get rescued by the general public.
I do have to say that after rescuing the pregnant mommy and placing her and 5 of the 7 puppies, I did respectfully ask God to please never ask that from me again. It was tough. And so hard letting go of the puppies too. But again, all now in fantastic homes and of course all spayed and neutered.
I know some people have their reasons for now spaying and neutering but if you ever knew the statistics of animals being put down at animal shelters (and yes many purebreds too), it would break your heart.
Looks like my Moose is going to be fine. Big vet bill, but thankfully he's okay. It could have been so much worse. Life is good and God is good. And come tomorrow night I'll be making music with my friends in Santa Barbara!!
