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!

Have you seen the media blitz promoting "Pillow Pets" on television? For $19.99 you can get a fabulously fluffy animal with special snaps on the bottom that converts the creature into a pillow. Edward, no doubt joining millions of children worldwide, would yell "I want that!" when the Pillow Pet commercials interrupted his morning cartoons. Enter Kojo, an upgraded competitor's product: part alligator, part pillow, part blanket. A Cesarean-section styled zipper in Kojo's tummy allows for the release of an almost full-sized blanket. Said blanket can be stuffed back into Kojo's innards to convert him into a pillow and two velcro straps can instantly turn him into a gator toy. As loyal followers of the Red Rocket Report know, Red Rocket loves anything pillow! And yes, the perspective of the photo is correct. Kojo is bigger than Rocket!
