Christmas Story/Thank You

Thank you to all who helped the Rescue Ranch animals over the holidays. I am so sorry for the delay in writing but slowly but surely, I am getting back to trying to maintain my blogs.

Here is the link to my latest Houston Chron story:

"Dingo Bones, Blankies, Treats:Rescue Ranch Holiday Presents Arrive"

http://blog.chron.com/fromunderthebridge/2012/01/dingos-bones-blankies-treats-rescue-ranch-holiday-presents-arrive/

I know how much you enjoy seeing photos of the animals that you have helped--especially if they are recovering/recovered from major injuries or trauma.

I was thrilled tonight to get up and see Pasha's paralyzed tail wagging slowly--five or six times--at me. When you are used to seeing a healthy dog's tail wag, it is really unusual to have a dog not be able to wag her tail at all. Once in a blue moon when she can move it, it takes me a second to realize the miracle before me--and I stop and thank God literally.

Precious also has gotten brave and came into the kitchen to share some cheese with me. I was shocked. Now, she wants to visit the kitchen regularly but is too shy (or feral/not adoptable yet) to do so if other dogs are there. She loves Bunny's Kuranda bed!  Seeing her being so brave is indeed another miracle...I will have a photo of her in the kitchen for my next post.

Sending love and hugs fro the herd--

Teeny Tiny Update

Starting this week, I'm going to begin writing my Houston Chron blog again--as often as I can. Computer screen time is equal to as many hours with my head on ice packs so I have to limit my writing.  Once I feel better, I will start writing this blog again but with this serious a concussion, the doctor says I have to get back to writing very gradually...

Thankfully, I can walk and talk--I am just having trouble with words, of all things, although that is gradually getting better, and with the glare of electronic equipment. (Answering one or two emails a day, when the list of questions, information, news, etc. is in the hundreds, is very difficult--so please be patient with me--and write "URGENT" or something to grab my attention if you really need me right away.)  Distemper emergencies, of course, have to come first. Just know, that if you are a RR angel, and made a gift or sent one, I am saying "thank you" for you in my prayers--and my "thank you" email will be coming soon. I won't forget.

In the meantime, there will be a new "Wish List" page coming this week on this site--which will include Mac & Cheese (boxes); creamy peanut butter (any flavor); long-term chews like rawhide anything and of course, the dogs beloved Dingos; canned dog food (we use to mix medicine into it, so all flavors welcome) and gift cards always...and we really, really, really--really--need twin/double (no bigger or we cannot fit in our washer) comforters specifically for the dogs with hip dysplasia, arthritis, etc. After so much washing, the current ones look like shredded swiss cheese! More details this week.

Something Unique in Pearland will continue to be a drop-off spot or you can mail a box to the Rescue Ranch, 945 McKinney Street, Unit 242, Houston, TX  77002.  (There are even all-you-can-stuff-for-one-price boxes at the PO that will keep the cost of shipping down!)

During this time, which was very unexpected and just plain a pain to deal with, never mind trying to think of how to raise the money to pay for the dogs' needs, gifts would be appreciated to help with the vet and medicine costs. If you need your gift to be tax-deductible, please contact me ahead of time via email.

Just a side note: The RR is not a shelter--I don't know where this rumor started. We do not take in animals from the public, do not house animals outside or in outdoor kennels. We are a private organization who works with vets, rescues, etc. who have animals with special needs like broken legs, crushed mouths, ruptured eyeballs, etc. The RR is a foster station, for animals to be nursed back to health and to recover--and they are welcomed as long as they need to stay, whether it be a week, a month or forever.

Thank you so very much for your patience, love and support--and prayers.  We all love you very much.
