Red Rocket is an adorable dachshund who was hit by a car, lost his left front leg, and was abandoned by his owner. He was taken to Heartland Animal Hospital where the hospital staff ministered to his needs with the help of monies from the Magnum Fund. PALS Animal Rescue was charged with screening prospective adoptive families and we applied to welcome him into our home. He's ours now and we're blogging to share his continued adventures!

Indoor Goose Hunting
Yesterday during our Saturday errands we stopped at Petsmart to stock up on food and cat litter. PALS volunteers were there showing dogs available for adoption so we were able to give Hank's foster mom an update on his progress. We resisted the two sweet miniature dachshunds PALS had for adoption and instead of bringing home more live creatures we opted for the "stuffed wild bird" assortment of dog toys containing a pheasant, a mallard duck, and a goose. For Hank, these faux feathered were an acceptable substitute to hunting the real thing. For me, anything that does not deposit poop to be rolled in by Red Rocket is a fabulous idea. However, I did pick up a new bottle of "Tropical Hound" coconut shampoo just in case some evil dog toy designer who previously worked for Spensers Boutiques made the stuffed wild birds the "Betsy Wetsy" variety.
