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!

Remembering Emma, Part 2
Every year on the anniversary of her adoption day I held a brunch in Emma's honor. The official adoption day was November 17 and after two years of holding the brunch in Wichita one of our guests dubbed the occasion, "the kickoff event of the Wichita holiday season." Some years the turnout for Emma's brunch filled the house to overflowing, other years it was a quieter event with just our closest friends; this year it was the latter. So I was able to plan a sit-down, rather than the traditional buffet-style, brunch. The meal ended just the way Emma always liked: with dogs licking the leftovers out of the sausage-egg casserole dish!
