Success Stories!

I just returned from Portland where I visited three of the dogs rescued from Chile earlier this year…

Rinco: I now realize just how tough this little guy is, not that he needs it mind you! He’s landed himself the lottery with Mark, Katherine and Louis for amusement, nourishment, protection and adoration. He doesn’t seem to miss Chile one bit, although I’m sure he will never forget Gabriela, his true savior. A bit boisterous still, Rinco is teaching Louis how to be tough, and to hide his rubber boots. Katherine’s flower garden, well, that’s a bit harder to hide. Could it be Rinco read “Dig It! Gardening Tips for Dogs”?

Cona (Conaf): After suffering a volcanic eruption, abandonment, living feral for one year and multiple litters of puppies dying of distemper, Cona made it to the US, had cancer removed in the nick of time, and then tore her ACL. All bad things are now behind her and Peter, Leslie and their daughter, Maddie have secured her place in the world. She lies on their bed, which Peter dismantled so that she can easily join them to cuddle, below an image of a dog on a bed that I’ve admired for many years…

Ouzo, aka Zunko: Misha, Allen and their three-legged cat (one of four cats I believe), have taken Ouzo in with open arms. Finally, he can find happiness and security, after experiencing repeated abandonment and suffering due to, among other things, the loss of his leg. When we talk of the loyalty of dogs, Ouzo is the shining example. He waits and looks for Misha, paying attention to what makes his new family happy. In return, he gets a couch to call home, and love, so much love. His wounds have healed and my brief visit cemented for him the fact that he is finally home.

Thank you to all the families who now share their homes with these amazing souls, and to the Pixie Project for assisting with the adoptions.

Stay tuned for follow-ups with Cassie, Julio (Copito) and Roberto. Meanwhile, here is Fumarola signing off from her recycled tire (with uncle Digby)…
