Greetings from Down South!! It’s Group Activity Time! Whoop whoop!
This is Jane - I work with the folks down in Mississippi, getting the CARE dogs and pups ready to travel north. Yesterday, we were faced with a terrible dilemma: two pregnant dogs in the Vicksburg MS shelter whose time was running out quickly. The shelter had already determined that if rescue wasn’t found, they were going to euthanize the girls before their puppies were born. All our fosters in the V’burg area were full, and we were staring at a brick wall. Since it never hurts to ask, I made a post anyway, begging for help, and low and behold, help arrived. Within twenty minutes, we had two fosters in the Memphis TN area willing to let the mama’s have their pups and stay until the babies are ready to travel at 8+ weeks, and we even got volunteer drivers to get them where they need to go. It’s a real live Christmas Miracle!! What we don’t have for the dogs is NAMES. We’re currently referring to them as the GSD (German Shepherd Dog) and The White Dog. This is not acceptable! However, we have a little problem down south. We only have about 8 names that we recycle through every two or three litters. The Up North folks are tired of Dixie and Trixie and Ellie Mae - and yes, we had a Noel this time last year, and we have one again this year too.
Please help us come up with great names for these two beautiful girls who squeaked by just in the nick of time. I got word a bit ago that The White Dog has already gone into labor. That was close!
So please comment with names. We’ll let each foster mom pick from the list of names submitted, and whoever’s name gets picked gets 6 tickets in our Money Tree Raffle, which happens Dec 21st. If the foster picks a name submitted by more than one person, we’ll put the submitters names in a hat and draw one out to see who gets the tickets.
