Snuggling Supplies Needed

We try to make our dogs as comfy as possible at all times. When no one is home, in order to keep the pups out of mischief (and to keep the house in one piece), we put all the dogs in their own crates. The crates have thick bedding on the bottom and have a few toys in there to keep the dogs busy. We also give them something to chew on, like a bully stick, when we leave so that they’re entertained for a while.

Every now and then we have a dog that would rather chew on the bedding than the toys. We have this in Chance.

So, we’re running low on bedding at the moment. We use blankets, sheets, comforters, moving blankets, dog beds, cushions – you name it, we use it!

If YOU have any of these kinds of items laying around your place that you don’t use and don’t know what to do with, we’d love to take them off your hands and turn them into awesome dog beds.

Please contact us at pugglesnpitties@gmail.com and we’ll coordinate their pick-up with you.

Many thanks, and happy snuggling!

Update on Bentley

May 2, 2012

Thank you to EVERYONE who has donated towards Bentley’s leg repair!!

So far we’ve received $580 in the Chip-in and $670 in off-line donations, for a total of $1,250 !!

Dr Hampel wants to do the surgery on Thursday – tomorrow – so we’re on a big push to try to raise the remaining $450.  Please tell everyone you know and crosspost our original plea like crazy! Every donation of $1 and $5 really does add up!!  Look what we’ve been able to do just since Sunday night!

If you have any trouble with the Chip In link, please contact Kelly at mdgrrrl@msn.com.  The Chip-In link again is: http://pugglesnpitties.chipin.com/bentleys-leg-repair

Thank you!

Thank you for your generosity! We’re so happy we’re going to be able to help this boy!

We got a call from our vet late last week…Bentley, a 3-yr old puggle, was brought in with a broken leg. The owner didn’t have money to pay for the surgery and the owner was going to have him euthanized if they couldn’t find anyone to take him on and get him the care he needed.

Well, we can’t imagine putting down a 3 yr old dog for a broken leg, so we agreed to help.  But now we need help helping little Bentley!!

Bentley needs to have his leg plated.  There is some question as to whether this is an old injury that wasn’t properly treated the first time or whether it’s completely new.  The girl who brought him in last week said she got him off of Craig’s List just a few days before but apparently he had been to this vet with his prior owner because he was in their system and they do have a record of him breaking this leg previously.  At that time it was splinted and he was put on crate rest. Now he needs the plate to make sure the repair holds.

Here’s the estimate from Animal Medical Center for the repair (click image to enlarge):

We’ve created a Chip-In for Bentley’s surgery and hope to have the money raised by Friday the 4th so we can schedule the surgery right away.  The vet wanted to do the surgery last Friday or this Monday but we had to put the brakes on to try and raise the funds.

Please share this post and the Chip-In link! If everyone can donate just $1 or $5, we can reach his goal in no time at all. This poor little nugget needs to get better soon…can you please help??

Please help me!

THANK YOU!!
