Got Dogs?

We do.

Greta. Came to Houston from NYC. She's 10 now and the alpha at our home.

Greta's sidekick. Loves to chase her tail... only she doesn't have one!! Also came to Houston via NYC. 10ish years old. She's a VERY friendly dog. Likes to put her nose as close to your face as she can~ BUT will not lick you! (Thank God)

Monty. Monty was at a shelter in Queens. The SADDEST & SMELLIEST dog ever. After a $30 cab ride to the ghetto, we sat in the most horrific waiting area and here comes Monty being dragged down a hall with a rope. Unbelievable. Needless to say, he has not been dragged since. Adoption fee of $250???, another $30 cab ride home, MULTIPLE baths, and a shave, we had our fresh & clean new addition. His namesake is one of my husbands friends in Ireland.

Suzy- Poor baby, she is one lucky dog, she found her forever home. She loves the kids. Vet thinks she is between 3-4 years old.

Suzy & Monty

Lucy. Lucy was dumped at a Sports Authority somewhere in North Houston on one HOT August day. Poor baby. 12+ years old, blind and partially deaf, this old lady was being taken to the pound for a sad ending. She now resides with us, spending her time going from a dog bed next to my bed to a dog bed in front of our fireplace. Lucy loves to swim and spent quite a few days last summer getting in and out of our pool. Good for her hips. Love her.

Believe it or not, I still have THREE more dogs to post about. More to come....

Cute dogs!! But I'm not sure what to make of the fact that I and one of my daughters share names with two of them ... :)

God bless you for having the heart hyou have to care for these unwanted dogs. I am glad they found their forever homes with you. You certainly have a place in Heaven for the kindness you have shown God's creatures. Shame on the persons that dumped these animals! Especially the person that so cruely dumped the beautiful blind older dog outside in the August heat!
