Susie Q

In loving memory of Susie Q.

In loving memory of our beautiful beagle Susie Q.  She was only with us for a short time, but she captured our hearts and we loved her so much.  She loved to run, to sniff, to bark, to chase squirrels, and to snuggle and cuddle with me which is why I called her bug-she was…

Gracelynn, our sweet little tripod.

Gracelynn came to us as a stray from Missouri. Such a love, but with a “wonky” leg. We worked with the vet on a number of different treatment plans, but we couldn’t get that leg to work right. Eventually, we were able to determine that it was causing her pain. She just didn’t want to…

Zea and her 5 surprise puppies

Zea showed up as a foster with a little mange on her head and a little surprise in store for us. For a dog her age (perhaps about 7-9 months old, she still had retained baby teeth), her belly should be very flat, but it wasn’t. Sure enough, a visit to the vet confirmed that…

Maybe eyes are over-rated

Fern and Greta May. What a pair. Fern came into rescue from a breeder and immediately we rushed her to the vet. Her eyes were infected and swollen and she was in excruciating pain. The call came quickly from the vet. Her glaucoma was severe in both eyes. The globes were ready to rupture. Our…

Miss Molly Bee who beat cancer

Meet Molly Bee.  This precious girl came to us from a Reservation in South Dakota. Happy and friendly, she waited in her foster home for her vetting to be done so she could find her forever home. Well, this happy girl did just that. But just before she was to be adopted, we discovered that…

The comeback of Maple Bacon

Ohhhh, the story of Maple Bacon is still a favorite. But let’s go to the beginning. Maple Bacon came into rescue when her mama and litter mates rejected her. She was the runt, and as often happens in nature, she was attacked by her mama and bullied by her sibling. She arrived shortly after being…

Distemper in the Covid 19 world.

Perhaps you’ve heard of Distemper. It’s a disease that we hardly ever see anymore. Vaccines have all but eradicated it. At least that was the case until Covid 19 hit. With the world in quarantine, vet clinics nearly stopped happening and dogs stopped getting vaccinated, especially on the Reservations, where pop up vaccine clinics are…
