« You Say It's Your Birthday | Main | Snug as a Pug in a Rug »
Getting back to what's really important to me - helping Pugs. Today, I took part in one of my rescue groups CUR's (Canine Underground Railroad). In other words, we transport needy pugs from their old "undesirable" homes, to new homes. Today we got the pugs from Manhattan up to the Mass/Vermont area.
I had the pleasure of helping "Puccini", whose owner has kept him OUTSIDE for the last 8 years. Pug ARE NOT outdoor dogs. Then the CRETAN made us BUY the dog from him instead of just surrendering so we can find him a better home. When we picked him up today, he did not come with any toys, no vet records, and the A-HOLE even had the nerve to ask if he could keep Puccini's harness and leash, the only two things that actually belonged to him in this world. I stopped along I-84 to let him go to the bathroom and I noticed there was blood in the snow, poor Puccini has some sort of infection on top of it all :( He has also never been neutered and had a bad smelly infection in his wrinkles. He'll need a lot of vet work that we'll have to pay for. Despite all of this, Puccini seems like a very happy, affectionate, inquisitive, and high energy boy.
Here is Puccini pug:
Toby is the other pug who needed helping. He was surrendered to us because his owner has Alzheimers and can no longer care for him. I felt so badly for Toby because he seemed very timid and sad :( He also had an infection in his wrinkles, was very skinny under all his wrinkles, and had some way overgrown claws which made him walk funny. Here is Toby pug:
My Leg of the CUR went smoothly, other than some humping and terrible pug-gas :) The good news is, today was the first day in the rest of these pugs lives where I know our rescue will find them safe, loving, forever-homes. It feels good to know I had a hand in that.
