Large Marge

Hi everyone!  Guess what momma has been busy doing??

Say hi to our new foster fur sibling, Marge...

Momma spent her 40th birthday meeting up with a Pug Pros
volunteer who drove Marge from Berkley to Monterey. But first Marge was picked up north of Sacramento by another FBRN volunteer who drove her down to Berkly. It was a real team effort getting her into rescue.

Marge is deaf from severe and chronic ear infections. She is on anti-imflammatories, antibiotics and ear drops to try to hopefully reduce the swelling in her ear canals. She is also already scheduled for Soft Palette Resection surgery so she can not only breath, but eat and drink comfortably too. After she's healed from her ear infections and her Soft Palette surgery, momma says she'll be spayed and never have to worry about raising puppies again!
Maybe the doc can do a boob lift too...
Despite Marge's 'little' bumps in life, momma says she's the biggest sweetheart and really loving. She's even started playing an occasional game of tug-o-war with us. 

We all think she's pretty neat and kinda like having her around...

Momma is going to start some fundraising to help cover Marge's surgeries. Soon she'll be on FBRN's foster page, where everyone can make a donation to help her along the road to recovery.

We've missed everyone!!
Love,
The Smushies

Marge! Perfect name. We like this ol' girl already. All she needs is some minor tune ups.
Maybe she just needs some decorative pasties? Flowers would do nicely.

Little Marge could not have picked a better place to settle in. With all those little smush faces running around there is always some entertainment for everybody.

I hope all her surgeries go OK.

Happy Birthday SmushMomma! We are so glad to hear that everyone is OK, Newman is still around, and now, Marge has joined Team Smushie. Looks like she could not have found a better place to pull herself together.
Good Luck Marge!

Hi everybodies. It seems our fosters overlap by a week or so. Newman's new momma and daddy are coming to take him home next week. We're gonna miss him terribly, but we couldn't have asked for a better family to love our boy.

Wilma said...

Great to hear from you and Happy Birthday Smushface Mom!
Marge sure looks like a sweetie. I hope she has a speedy recovery from her health issues.I know she will enjoy her stay at the ranch. I will miss seeing Newman, but I am glad he will have a new forever home.
