Happy, healthy and happy, but found on his own Monday.

Rescued and brought to the shelter in serious condition
He arrived with infected eyes, mange, fleas, docked tail,
so he had his dip and other treatments.
  As Nora commented, the water was dirty,
and the pup was willing to be helped.
Added to skin problems, his tummy too round.   After all that excitement, he manages to get a peaceful rest,
probably the first ever in a secure environment. He was up
and about later, but sadly didn't make it through the night,
as his body gave in to the multitude issues.
R.I.P. sweet little soul

Little Kitty found a new meowing home with this couple on Saturday.
We recommend using a proper carrier for the journey home.

Don't try this at home!

TV crew on the way, the sign had fallen
and just needed to be put back up.

It was straightened and suspended differently
to keep it from falling on the dogs walking below.
