Hear is another letter that Arty sent to us when he was on his big adventure to the cold tundra of W-I-S-C-O-N-S-I-N.....we made Mama promise to get these over with before it is NEXT Christmas!!

Dear Dory, Jakey, Bilbo and FS Bella,

We arrived and Wisconsin Gramma's house last night and went to bed early.  No snuggling with Mama and Daddy though, they brought my room...BOO!! But I was a good boy and slept all the night through!! Guess what happened???

Special Foster Alert!

untitled-14 Since I am ever so tired from my rough weekend of sleeping and snuggling I am letting Mama tell you a little about our sickie foster sister Miss Fluffy Bella today.

"From the Mama"
Thanks soooo much Dory, and thanks for all the snuggles this weekend!!

The week before Christmas Fluffy Bella, who is a wonderful, loving 1-2 yr old female Westie mix, came to stay with us until she finds her furr-ever home. A definite snuggle-bug, she will sit next to my husband and/or I for as long as she can and loves to listen to us tell her about our day!

She came to us with what we thought was an urinary tract infection. It seemed that she had to urinate every 5 minutes when, in fact, most of these potty trips were in vain as she strained and whimpered with no success in getting the urine out.

We assumed that this was going to need further attention and  after a trip to the vet we found out that she actually had 2 bladder stones over an inch big each! This little girl is only 10 pounds, so you can imagine how these stones must have interfered with her potty breaks!!
Although it was a very expensive operation, Austin Dog Alliance is committed to doing whatever is necessary to keep their fosters healthy and last Thursday we took Fluffy Bella to have the procedure done (at Austin Dog Alliance's expense) and today she is a totally different little girl!

She is back to an ordinary potty routine after only 2 days!! Bella spent last night curled up in her crate with no accidents and a report from my husband of a long interrupted stream of urine outside this morning!! What a special and lucky little girl!! We are sure she will be placed in her furr-ever home in no time!!

Needless to say Bella owes her comfort, not to mention her extended life expectancy, to Austin Dog Alliance and we want to do our best to "paw it forward".  A "Chip In" has been set up to help reimburse some of the cost Fluffy Bella's operation, along with the funds required to help vet a litter of pups that were taken in by ADA from a retiring breeder.

Dear Dory, Jakey, Bilbo and Foster Sis Bella,

ABA-Christmas 2012-On the Rd
Daddy, Mama and I had a good time on the first day of my adventure. I spent most of the day sitting in the back seat doing this...

But sometimes Daddy stopped so I could stretch my legs and get a drink. We saw lots of cool things like this old factory.
