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!

Love and Tornado
As Red Rocket Report fans from Wichita know, we had a tornado come through here several weeks ago. It was a scary experience as the twister passed within a mile of our house and there were some bleak moments when we thought we would be hit. We have a pet disaster plan and the dogs and cats were kenneled in the basement laundry room with us. When the tornado sirens go off in Wichita, Edward's usual first response is to yell, "Where's my Pooh Bear!?!" I recount this story to convey how much Edward loves Hank: only a child who has deeply bonded with his dog would tuck Pooh Bear in next to the canine for his afternoon nap...
