Thank you to everyone who responded to yesterday's post! If you missed it, two LBR dogs (LBR foster Bruno and his foster sister LBR alum Nala) suddenly got sick two nights ago. They were having neurological symptoms, like losing control of their bowels and not being able to stand up. Their momma rushed them to the vet, and they were diagnosed with antifreeze poisoning! That's not something that a lot of pups survive, but they're still hanging on and fighting as of this morning. I'll keep you updated when I hear more about their condition.

"Thanks for all your prayers! We will keep fighting!!"

Unfortunately, we know this was intentional, not an accident. :(  The police are involved, and we can't talk about the pending investigation, so that's all I can say for now. We hope that Nala and Bruno pull through and the person who did this to them is punished as they deserve. I want to bite them, but Momma said we have to let the legal system work instead. Phooey.

LBR set up a ChipIn page to help cover Nala and Bruno's vet bills. (Since Nala isn't a foster dog, LBR can't cover her bills directly.) Thank you to anyone who helps!

And now for something to cheer us all up a little...

Baby Austin turned eight weeks old yesterday!! I can't believe our little baby is so grown up. He's officially available for adoption from LBR now, but I have a feeling it will take his foster momma a while to decide on his perfect home. Happy birthday, Baby Austin!!

Update: Not much news, but the V-E-T tells us that Nala and Bruno's blood work is normal (GOOD!) but they're not peeing (bad). We're going to keep fighting for both of them, so please keep that Power of the Paw coming!


  1. I am so sorry to hear about that...humans can be very very crual sometimes and its hard to understand why...hopefully the meanies will have to go stay at Alcatraz and never find their way out...
    austin is a big dad would love him!!!

  2. If Bruno and Nala need any legal representation you lets me know. There is no sense in doin' dat to a dog. I am just devestated to knows di has happened to them and I'll be sendin' my thoughts and prayers to them and to Nala's mom.
    Dat dogone Austin maks me squeeeeeeel...he be so precious!


  3. Who in the world could do that to such precious doggies? People can be so awful! Prayers and positive thoughts for the whole situation. And Austin is ridiculously cute. Gigantic paws!

  4. Oh Casey Mom and I are so sorry to hear this about Nala and Bruno and even worse that it was intentional. We are most certain what goes around comes around and those evil creeps will be paid back!

    Austin you are getting so big and look at your precious white paws.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  5. I am speachless. Grrrrrrr.
    But Austin you also leave me with now words, but in a good way.

  6. The fact that Nala and Bruno's suffering is a result of someone's cruelty is heart wrendering! We have them in our thoughts and hope they pull through...keep us posted!

    Austin...we know the forever home your foster mom finds for you will be fit for the little prince you are!! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo
    P.S.Did we mention we all hit the floor because of Austin's cuteness?!! Thud!!

  7. Auuuuuustin!!!!! You're looking like such a big puppy!!!!
    Our prayers continue for Nala and Bruno. I also am praying that the person responsible is found and held responsible.

  8. Oh my dogness, we didn't know about Bruno and Nala. Poor guys!!! That is just so wrong. I vote on biting them AND legal action. Plus a giant poo in their shoe. Just doesn't make sense how anyone could intentionally hurt a pup.

    Baby Austin is getting to be a big boy! How adorable.


  9. That is something our Mom always worries about with stupid peeps doing something to us while we are outside. We will keep our paws crossed for Nala and Bruno.

    Maybe Baby Austin has already found his forever home:)
