  1. Ahh beautiful. Thanks for sharing. The third one is my favorite. What mischief in those eyes.
  2. Great smiles on pretty dogs everyone!! Here's my freckled faced beauty:
  3. Everyone meet Rouxbee. I got little Rouxbee from the LSU Emergency Animal Shelter. I volunteered there after Katrina. It was an animal shelter set up for owners who had been displaced and couldn't keep their pets either because they were in a shelter or staying somewhere that didn't allow pets. Anyway, she caught my eye from day one. As you can see in the second picture her leg is broken. But it didn't seem to bother her a bit. She would lay in the bottom of her pen and play with the one toy she had in there. She seemed so content even by herself and with the bum leg. So we took it on ourselves (me and another volunteer) to get her to a vet and see what could be done about her leg. Come to find out the leg had already healed so it was broken before the storm. Later we found out that the owner had relinguished her. So I decided to take her, have her leg fixed and find her a good home. I failed miserably at being a foster mom. She's mine now and she won't be going anywhere. We had her leg fixed last Friday. It required rebreaking the leg, cutting bone out due to new bone growth when it tried to heal. She has a steel plate with several screws in her leg now which is permanent. No cast. But I did have to take her in yesterday to get a splint put on it. I couldn't keep her still and didn't want her to reinjure the leg. My poor little red girl. Oh yeah her name at the shelter was Scooby and they had her listed as a male. And she has figured out how to be pitiful.This is after surgery.
  4. Lucky guy. Beautiful pups you have there.
  5. Is it ok if it's a Border Collie wanna be? This is my Rouxbee: I got little Rouxbee from the LSU Emergency Animal Shelter. I volunteered there after Katrina.

  6. Stunning!!Breathtakenly Beautiful!!
  7. Rebecca, I love those long legs..What a pretty set of pups you have. They look so very happy. As for staying in the AC, I wish. We can't keep Jazz in on the weekends. She loves to be out when we are working in the yard. But every now anf then she just can't take it anymore and she'll run in and lay on the cool tile floor..
  8. It's been pretty darn hot here lately and we have at least four more weeks of it. I'm in South Louisiana. Averages around 95 degrees every day, when it's not storming. This is how Jazzy keeps her cool. Huh? What's this? Do I detect movement? Glub Glub Glub!! MOM it bit me!!!!!! Ya know this feels pretty good!
  9. Thanks to you Kip was loved during her last days here. You are truly an angel, as is Kip. Godspeed Little Kip..
  10. Please forgive me if I have stepped out of bounds here but if I understand the way these things work is that the dogs will probably have to be in state custody until the owner signs them over or goes to trial. (If it's considered a cruelty case)And it seems to me that the owner is having a few problems right now so it's probably uncertain as to if she's capable of a trial or not. As far as them being PTS I don't think the state can do that as long as the dogs "belong" to someone. So I think they will be alright for now. That is probably why fosters are urgently needed in MO. I'm sure "technically" the dogs still belong to the owner. oops looks like Books and I posted at the same time.
  11. Forgot to add make sure you have plenty of matches and or lighters.
  12. Here's a few things I would add. If you have a grill it would be a good idea to stock up on charcoal/gas. We have a gas grill with a side burner and we have crawfish boilers. (Propane burners)They can be used to boil water if needed. If you have an electric water heater you will really appreciate taking a warm bath. We went without power for 8 days when hurricane Andrew hit Morgan City. Disposable cups/ paper plates. A battery operated tv is a good thing to have. You can pick them up pretty cheap now. Make sure your homeowners insurance papers (and any other important papers) are handy and in a safe place. Preferably, in something sealed so they can't get wet. Most of all stay safe.
  13. Thanks for the update jenfitzh20. Please post when you can.
