Dog update Monday

Monday! Time for a dog update. You may remember our friends who were working to save some dogs running wild in Washington Park. Eevie, our special liasion to the dog world, reports: "Red and Fawn have been kickin' it indoors with Joe and his three resident pooches for several weeks. They are adjusting very well to civilization. Even Fawn, who was truly a feral dog, has now learned to sit and down on command. Red, who is an absolutely WONDERFUL medium-sized shepherd, seems relieved not to have to be the alpha anymore now that she has a human to take charge. She likes to walk at your side as if proper heeling is just in her DNA."

If you are interested in meeting and possibly adopting one of these dogs, please contact HPC. They still need some veterinary care and heartworm medications; any donations earmarked for this project would be warmly appreciated and you will receive not only good karma but virtual face-licks and tail-wags. Write to for more information.

Just to clarify, the doggies' heartworm status is not known yet--vet appt on the 17th. Both will be spayed, vetted, and have a heartworm test before they are adoptable.
