This is a great story about a handicapped street dog from Puerto Rico finding a new life in America:

When I met her, she took a few steps toward me and fell, and then never seemed to fully regain her footing. We thought it was due to her long trip, nervousness and new surroundings, but she didn’t improve when we got her home.

Watching her struggle to walk was heartbreaking, as she could only take a couple of steps and fall over. She couldn’t even get herself upright from the hardwood floors, dragging herself around the house instead.

While Hope did show signs of injury as the shelter in Puerto Rico suspected, our vet’s diagnosis was more dire: she had cerebellar hypoplasia, a neurological condition that caused permanent disability. She would not get better.

Does it get any cuter?

Guest Dog Blog: Beaux the Wonder Dog

This is Beaux, my office’s rescued mutt. To be fair, he only belongs to one of my coworkers, but he’s the only dog who regularly comes into the office. I’m pretty sure Tulla would just pee on the office carpet. Beaux is a big dog stuck in a smaller dog’s body; he’s not afraid of much and loves to run with the big dogs in the dog park. He’s some kind of Australian shepherd mixed with some other stuff. Like May, he’s definitely a herder. Beaux is smart as anything, and incredibly protective of his momma, who hunted really hard to find him and spoils him rotten just like he deserves. He has an adorable underbite, and crazy piles of energy. The workdays I get to see him gives me a nice dose of doggy, and make me miss Tulla. Here he is with one of Tulla’s rejected raw hide bones…because it scared her. Oh, and Beaux has the best doggy breath I’ve ever had huffed on me.
