He was hit by a car and neglected by his owners until the Pug Rescue of New England came to his aid. He isn't even 2 years old yet, the poor thing! Fortunately PRoNE got him the surgery that he needed.
Another sad case from PRoNE is Bogart who has terrible eye and hip injuries that PRoNE has had operated on and are now helping him to recover.
I'm sharing their stories here in the hopes that some of my compassionate friends who may have some funds to spare can donate to the rescue and help them to help animals like Ricco and Bogart. You can read their stories and how to help them at PRoNE's blog.
More sad news came to me today when I found out that Rue McClanahan of The Golden Girls died after having a stroke earlier today. Rue was an avid animal advocate and is one of my heroes when it comes to animal rights activism. I hope that others will also remember her for her compassion, and not just her hilarious role as the sultry vixen, Blanche Devereaux.
Cruelty is one fashion statement we can all do without. ~Rue McClanahan
Tomorrow afternoon I am leaving for a trip and won't be back until Sunday night. I am sure I will have dozens of photos to share when I come back and JD will have plenty of adventures to brag about while his grandparents spoil him! He already is acting like the king of our bedroom while he watches me pack.
He will miss me while I'm gone, but he will certainly enjoy having the bed all to himself for once :]
