Contest Update!

Before I update you on my contest entries, there's someone I'd like to tell you about. 

Since mom has taken over the import for Homeward Bound Dog Rescue, she has run into a few sad cases that Homeward Bound has been fortunate enough to help.  The most recent case is a German Shepherd mix named Merry.  Merry and her 3 puppies were found on the doorstep of a vets office on Christmas Eve in Georgia.  Merry and her puppies were taken into rescue and transported to Homeward Bound earlier this month.  Merry is one of the sweetest dogs and has such a wonderful, happy demeanor.  They think she was hit by a car a little over a year ago and was never taken to the vet to be treated.  Her front left leg healed tight next to her body, so she would only walk on 3 legs.  Once Merry got to Homeward Bound, she was brought to a specialist who decided it was in Merry's best interest to remove the "dead" leg.  It had begun to affect her center of balance and she walks/hops sideways to get around.  Merry's surgery was Tuesday afternoon and she is doing great in her recovery and will return to her foster home today to continue recovering.  Merry's surgery and care cost $3,000.  If you would like to Donate to Merry's fund, please visit Homeward Bound's Website.  You can write "For Merry" in the description and put that you came from Corbin if you'd like.  If you scroll down further on the dontations page, you will see me and the story of my legs from when I first arrived at Homeward Bound.  So, I have a bit of a soft spot for the dogs who need a little extra medical attention!
This is Merry and how she used to hold up her leg.
These are Merry's Puppies, Comet, Dasher and Dancer

  19. Oh Corbin, your story of Merry, broke my heart and filled it with joy as well. That she had such a terrible life and now has been rescued and shown that there are great people in the world. Good luck Merry and your pups. Can't wait to see the winner of your competition. No worries, love Carol.
