We need a luck dragon!

Guys, this one really hurts. :(  Look away if you're squeamish. This poor baby is Falkor. He started out with a case of demodex mange, which has gone untreated and turned into massive skin infections. On top of that, he's emaciated to the point of starvation.

LBR found out about this baby and couldn't leave him in the shelter, even though we're not really sure if he's a boxer or a mix of who knows what! A pawsome foster home stepped up (thank you, Auntie Kathy!), and he's being rushed to an LBR vet first thing in the morning. Our Pack Leader, Auntie Sharon, exercised presidential privilege and chose his name herself. He's named after the luck dragon from The Neverending Story.


Luck dragons exist on pure luck and can pull through absolutely impossible situations. We know that our Falkor will show some of the same luck. He'll be healthy and happy in no time, and LBR will find him the most pawsome furever home ever! Falkor is going to need a lot of vet care, so if you'd like to make a donation, click here!

Update: Falkor made it through the night and is at an LBR vet now getting the care he needs! Now that we've gotten a better look at him, we think he might be an English Bulldog, but it's still hard to tell. I'll keep you updated on his health. But did you know the amazing fans of LBR have already raised over $4,000 for Falkor's vet bills?! Just since last night! WOW! Thanks, everyone!

Sad update: Falkor went to the Rainbow Bridge late this morning. His little heart just couldn't handle everything he was going through. :(  The donation link has been disabled, but thank you to everyone who donated!

While we celebrate the Power of the Paw for Falkor, today is a special day in Blogville for TWO reasons! Furst, it's the Beach Pawty Bash for my furiends Stuart and Ranger, who are both celebrating their barkday today!!


As you can see, Cinderella and I are all ready to enjoy a beach pawty.


Happy barkday, Stuart and Ranger!!! I hope all my furiends stop on by your pawty and make it a HUGE success.

Second, today is the FURST ever PIP and PUDDLES Appreciation Day!!


Pip and Puddles were some of my very furst furiends when I came to Blogville. Puddles taught me how to have my own voice on my blog, to never be ashamed of being utterly gawjuss, and to embrace my inner squirrel-deader.


Pip taught me so much about the impawtance of enjoying every moment of life with his recent Blog World Tour. No matter what life throws at you, it's important to enjoy the little things and take life by the horns!


Thank you for being my furiends, Pip and Puddles! You two are welcome in Texas any time you want. I'll keep the beer and cheetos stocked!!

Please tell him that from us.

I am sad about Falkor and how he must have suffered. I am also happy for him, cause now he is running free across the Rainbow Bridge and he is pain free. I imagine it to be so beautiful and he can run and run and run surrounded by loving pals and no more sadness.

It is a great party day here in Blogville. I have been making the rounds to Ranger and Stuart and to Puddles and Pip. What a fun day for all of us

OMG...How can someone let this happen to this wonderful little angel. Our hearts are breaking for him. I guess our only comfort is knowing he isn't suffering anymore.
