Hugo was taken to the vet because of his jaw, soon labeled “his crooked smile,” where he had X-rays. The veterinarian’s diagnosis: Hugo had suffered a fractured skull and a broken jaw, likely the result of injury from abuse.
I’d like to tell you about my dog, Starla Rose. Starla is my hero because she holds our little family together. She gives so much love and makes us laugh hysterically even when we think we can’t break a smile.
“Who is this?!” Emelinda told me, “This is Princess!” They rescued her out of a dumpster only two days earlier. She was about 6 and a half months old, skinny, covered in rashes and fearful. She had just been spayed and at the same time had surgery to repair a hernia.
’What is your travel regimen with your dogs over the holidays?’ How do you keep them comfortable during the trip? Do they stay with you at the homes of friends and family, or do you stay at pet-friendly hotels? (And if you have hotels that you particularly like to use when traveling with pets, let us know!)
Giada is a 3-year old pit bull. We adopted her from a veterinarian in New Jersey when she was 6 months old. It turned out that she had parvovirus as a young puppy. We met her and it was an instant connection. She was so sweet and very gentle with our then 1-year-old son. We had to adopt her.
We’ve been asking this question of our StubbyDog everyday heroes, and we thought it would be great to ask our Facebook fans, too! ’If you had a super power that could be used to help pit bulls, what would it be?’
If you were to ask me how we ended up getting another dog, I would have to say it all started with reading a freshly pressed by Aleks at Love and a Leash. Her post about their beloved Snickerdoodle was freshly pressed and I began reading every single post she ever wrote, from the very beginning.
After hearing that story I just knew I had to give this cute puppy a permanent home and family. Surely if I gave her all my love she couldn’t be “that bad.” Little did I know she would turn out to be the sweetest, most loving dog I’ve ever met and no, that’s not just the “mommy” in me speaking.
The holidays are approaching fast, and we know a lot of you are going to be preparing delicious menus for friends and family. But we don’t want to forget about our furry friends, so we asked our Facebook fans, ‘What are some dog-friendly recipes that you give your pooch (or do you skip the treat and stick with their normal meal)?’
