Today Mom went to the north part of the state to pick up another rescued dog. She was rescued from a really really bad situation of neglect. She is awfully skinny because she hasn't been fed well and she is afraid of just about everything  because she has never been out of the backyard since she was a puppy and nobuddy ever spent any time with her. Mom left our house at 7:30 this morning to go get Maizie and she got home about 8:00 tonight. Here are some pickshures of Maizie. The last pickshure might make you sad, but Mom  told me to tell you that Maizie's ears are being treated with antibiotics and they will be okay.

Tonight Maizie is safe inside a house for the first time in her life. She has already learned about getting a massage from Mom and about lying down on a big soft floor pillow. And Mom put several drops of Bach Rescue Remedy in the water bowl because it is good for helping hoomans and animals get de-stressed. Maizie hasn't eaten anything yet, because she is still getting acklimmated, but we expect she will want some breakfast tomorrow morning because she hasn't had any food all day today. It was a long ride in the car and Maizie stood up the entire time. She is zonked out now and we hope she stays asleep all night. 

She is as tall as I am but she weighs 25 pounds less than I do.

At first, she was scared to walk on the vinyl floor.

She is scared of everything.

Both of her ears look like this. She was living outside 
and flies were chewing on her ears.

Remember, now, she looks really skinny and sad in the pickshures, but she is going to be JUST FINE. So y'owl don't need to worry about her. Maizie is safe for the rest of her life because a kind hooman knew that animals deserve better than to be neglected and ignored. Mom said, would you please make a donation to your local no-kill animal shelter, please, so that more animals like Maizie can be saved and healed and protected. Thanks.  Duke.

O.K. Well, there is no way we cannot feel shocked and sad. You did your best but what can prepare a heart for THIS KIND OF S***! However your mom found out and made the effort to rescue her, there is a St. Francis Seat of Glory in Heaven for all of you who do this heartbreaking work...our jaw dropped and, well, OMG!
That said, we have a million questions but your mom needs to rest, Duke, she is tired. So, when you get a chance, how long will she be staying with you to recover physically and emotionally, does she have a forever home ready yet, will you keep us informed often on your progress and hers, and we are doing the best we can to support everything NO KILL, but will you remind your mom she needs to make herSELF A SANCTUARY, TOO? Because wasn't last weekend the St. Francis weekend? Mommy don't wanna end up like our mommy.
Unless you enjoy stepping over her carcass on your way from there to here. God Bless you all. Please give yourselves guinea pig kisses.

That is the saddest sight...We struggle to find the words for a dog that is treated that way.

THANK YOU for propelling her towards a better life of health, happiness and love.
