Ethan & Etta (Adopted)

ethan

hi humans!  i’m Ethan, an’ my sis is Etta!  i’m gonna try this blog thing first cuz my sis is a tiny bit shy at first… then she’s just as happy-go-lucky an’ outgoing as me!  here’s our story so far… we’re Pit Bull/Dachshund (funny spelling, huh?)/Corgi mixes or somethin’ like that, an’ we’re 6 months old.  KCK animal control found us, an’ we were real sick with parvovirus AND had dee-moh-dex mange, so we were brought here, after we went to VCA Welborn Animal Hospital cuz we had to get treated for parvo.  we’re so glad we got to come here!  we’re doin’ lots better now an’ our fur has grown back an’ everything!!  HSGKC has taken in lots of puppies since we came in who have dee-moh-dex mange, too… Wilbur, Homer, French Fry, an’ Dwayne… you’ll probly meet some of them soon, ‘cept for Wilbur cuz he’s gonna be adopted next week!

anethan&ettayways… i thought maybe you humans would like to know a lil more ’bout dee-moh dex so it doesn’t seem so scary!  ya see, dee-moh-dex is a mite that lives on all doggies an’ sometimes when doggies immune systems (i gotta say, humans got lots of big words for stuff…
sheesh!) are immature (like for us puppies), or if there’s a lot of stress (like we’re puppies fendin’ for ourselves on the streets without a home or a mommy), then the stupid lil mites get outta control an’ start attacking our fur!  how rude! as if we don’t already have enuff goin’ on!  anyways, sometimes it looks real bad… like we get scabs, an’ lee-juhns, an’ sometimes humans think we look icky… well we can’t help it!  we feel like we’ve got somethin’ called “poy-son ivy” (a rash humans get, i think) all over our whole bodies, an’ we itch real bad!  the good thing ’bout dee-moh-dex is that it’s not con-tay-jush to other doggies, kitties or humans!  the other kinda mange, scay-bees or sar-cop-tick mange is con-tay-jush!  i’m happy we don’t got that kind!  the humans here take real, real good care of us, an’ we take medicine to kill the stupid lil mites, an’ we gots to have regular medicay-ted baths til we get better!  how long it takes for us to be all healthy jus’ depends on how bad the mites are!  k, so i’m gonna let Etta talk ’bout somethin’ excitin’ for us tomorrow!

ettahi… i’m Etta an’ i heard our humans talkin’ ’bout a sat-el-ite adop-shun event me an’ Ethan getta go to tomorrow!!  i’m a tiny bit nervous ‘cuz i’m not totally sure what it’s all ’bout, but i’ve heard they’re lots of fun!  we’re gonna be at some place called Four Paws antry & Spa in Olathe from 11-3 on Saturday, August 1!  you can check out hsgkc.org for more info!  i think it’s gonna be fun… we’re gonna meet new humans, some doggies, an’ if i ‘member right, when doggies go to sat-el-ite adop-shun events, humans make a REAL big deal ’bout how cute us dogs are (an’ me and Ethan are real cute… ask anyone, an’ check out our video, too!), give us lots of treats, an’ play with us an’ stuff!  sometimes, humans meet doggies at the event thingies, an’ wanna even adopt dogs they meet!  that’d be soooo awesome!  me and Ethan really wanna go to a forever home together!  we’ve been thru a lot already, an’ our super nice humans don’t want us to be split up cuz we’re so cute together!  the next time we blog, we’ll talk ’bout the kinda forever home we want… unless a family decides they wanna adopt us before then… that’d be so cool!

k, we’re gonna say bye for now cuz it’s time for us to go outside an’ play with Wilbur! don’t forget to check out hsgkc.org for more info ’bout adopt-shun, the event tomorrow…an’ you gotta watch our video!  bye!!!!

Sweet Pibble (Adopted!)

Hi everyone, my name is Pibble.  I’m 2-3 years old and I’m a Pit Bull.  I getta try this blog thingy out today ’cause I getta talk ’bout me an’ Skinny Pete.  The reason I wanted to blog is ’cause I know Jai (she’s one of the humans who takes care of us, specifically me and Skinny Pete) has put some stuff ’bout us on somethin’ called “instagram” and I thought you might wanna know how we’re doin’. Before I say too much more… I want to tell you I’m doin’ great!  You may have read about my bad injury or seen photos of my injury on Instagram or Facebook, but I want you to know that thanks to the surgeries and lots of TLC from the humans here I’m getting better everyday!  Skinny Pete was shot in the foot, and he’s doin’ fine now, too!

This is my buddy, Skinny Pete!

This is my buddy, Skinny Pete!

I learned that ’cause HSGKC works with KCK Animal Control, dogs and cats who need extra medical attention come here ’cause they have more humans here to do the stuff we need, and that’s how Skinny Pete and I came here.  Anyways, we’re doin’ really good!  I think Skinny Pete has a lil crush one me, and I gotta be honest, I have a crush on him, too. We LOVE playing together, and hanging out together in the volunteer room.  We wrestle, and run around, and make our humans laugh.  I think the reason our humans love us so much is ’cause we have real good temperaments… like we LOVE all the humans we meet, especially when they give me Pup-Peroni (Christine found out that’s my most favorite treat, so she always have a stash for me).  They also love us ’cause despite what’s happened to us, we are happy and love humans.  I’m also great with cats, too.

I’m gonna go for now, but before I do, I just wanted to say I’m sooooo happy HSGKC helps dogs like me and Skinny Pete!  We’re so lucky to be here, and we’re doin’ great! If you’ve made a donation to help us, thanks!  Next time I’ll talk about the kinda forever home I’d like.  If you wanna learn more about me, Skinny Pete, or how to help HSGKC, check out the HSGKC website, or you can make a donation to Gabriel’s Fund or Ray of Hope in our name.
