Howl-o-ween treat!

I hope everyone had a fangtastic Howl-o-ween! My sissy and I were on hand to welcome all the trick-or-treaters. We took turns 'cause Momma couldn't hold two leashes and a candy bowl. The kids were so happy to see us! We got lots of petting. Lots of them remember us from earlier years -- we're famous! :)


And here's a special bonus pic from Bark in the Park last weekend. They had a pawtographer there doing portraits, so Momma and I posed for one. I think it turned out pretty grreat! I love my momma. :)


Finally, here's a Howl-o-ween rescue treat! LBR got an urgent call from a local shelter yesterday. A female boxer had been left in their overnight drop-box, and she was sick. They took her to the V-E-T, and he discovered she was having puppies! There was a puppy that got stuck in the birth canal, and instead of helping her, her owners just left her in the drop-box. Can you believe that?!


The stuck pup passed away, along with three other of his littermates. But three pups managed to survive. LBR immediately jumped into action to help this poor momma out!


 Look at that smile! She knows she and her babies are safe now and will get all the care and loving they can handle. Welcome to LBR, Mama! And your cute li'l babies too.


 You're the best Howl-o-ween treat ever!

What awful owners... We would love to know who they are so we could bite off their testicles or something awful like that... probably ankles because we do not jump high enough to really do damage.

Love the picture of you and your mom! :) But we are singing "Summer Lovin'" now... you and your mom's taste in t-shirts!!

Another case of animal cruelty. At least they dropped her at the shelter but this wasn't enough in her case. This dog needed immediate help.

I'm so glad she's getting the proper, loving care that she and her pups deserve. So sad about the ones lost though.

You guys look pretty snazzi in your "Grease" shirts!

Casey, that pic of you with your Mama is absolutely ridiculously cute!!

Some people are duds. Srsly. We are sooo glad the outcome of the Mama and her pups was good (although sad that some pups didn't make it). It could have gone terribly wrong for her! Thanks LBR :)

What the hell is wrong with some people? That makes me so darn mad. I am glad some of the pups survived! I bet you guys got a ton of petting last night, I got a lot of "oh, cute puppy" comments!!

OH MY GOSH this just burns us up to hear what subhumans do. I can only hope what goes around comes around to them.
We hope the 3 babies and their Mom are blessed with good health, lots of love and food and furever homes
Hugs Madi
PS we like your portrait

I like your costumes.
I just can't understand an never will understand how people can do that. HOW??? Makes me want to bite them in the butt. Glad Momma and pups are in a safe place.
Blessings,

What a sad story for that poor Boxer Mommy. How do people do such things? So thankful your rescue is there to help out our furiends in distress.

Love your Grease theme! I wish we had doggy trick or treaters...sigh.

The cruelty of humans never fails to amaze me. I'm so relieved the rescue is there to show the other, wonderful side of humans.
Yours,

What a great Halloween present for that beautiful mom. To be able to get away from humans who didn't deserve her in the first place.
And now she and her puppies have a chance at finding a wonderful home full of love.
Even though the beginning of the story is sad, the ending is full of hope.

That is the BEST Halloween treat! God bless LBR for taking the mama and babies in!
You and Cinderella must have had a blast! Did the kids give you ear scratchies or anything?
Play bows,
