Landon's story.... Pug in need.

This is Stella and Gunther's mom filling in for them. The Monarch Butterflies are out in full force right now, so my cuties are outside pretending they are cunning hunters. Even with dozens of butterflies in the yard, Stella and Gunther have no chance of catching one...

I'm posting to help spread the word for Pugs 'N Pals of Southern California. They are trying to raise money for Landon's surgery. His sad (and all too often) story is below. Following Landon's story is information for the Yankee Candle fundraiser.

Thanks everyone!

Landon was at the Lake Ellsinore shelter ready to be put down due to a broken leg when we got word of him. We rushed over to get him. He was in terrible pain and had been at the shelter without any medical treatment for at least 5 days that we know of. When we got him we knew this was bad. It appears he got hit by a car, the leg was in bad shape. He went into emergency surgery. A few days later we noticed that he wasn’t using his “good” leg, he just dragged himself. Back to the Vet and more x-rays, it appears that leg is not working properly or at all, it is hard to tell due to the huge cast on the other leg how much use he as of the “good leg”. Tomorrow, Tuesday Oct. 27th, we will be taking him to a neurologist to see what is going on. He may have a spinal injury, at which point he will need an MRI and back surgery. Problem is the leg needs to heal before further surgery can be done, but time may be a factor here.

So PLEASE pass around the Yankee Candle fundraiser to every one you know. We are also accepting donations for beautiful sweet Landon. Every vet that has treated him said he is the sweetest little guy, even in the pain he was in, he was giving kisses. Please help us help Landon. Send donations to
