I'm happy Monday is over!
I'm happy the snow melted after a day!
I'm happy Max has made it 20 days past his grim prognosis!
I'm happy to be getting my taxes done for free tomorrow!
I'm happy my chihuahuas are happy!
I'm happy I got to have dinner with two friends this evening.
This week's Blog of the Week makes me both happy and sad at the same time. I found it through a comment that the blog originator, Wesley, made on Max's blog.
Wesley found this when he was standing on his porch this past Sunday:
A walking skeleton of a dog! Fortunately for him, Wesley has a big heart and has been caring for him ever since. This blog is to help track his progress.
As you can tell by the name of the blog and the dog's frame, his name is Skeletor. And Wes is his salvation.
He visited the vet and sadly, it turns out Skeletor has heartworm. He only weighs 39.20 pounds as of this past Thursday. Once he gains some more weight, he can begin treatment. It's curable, but there is a risk associated with it. He goes back in a few weeks and in the mean time, Wes and his roommate will continue to fatten him up.
The blog has been updated daily since it's inception with pictures and comments about Skeletor's progress and today there was also a video. There's a spot on the blog for donations but Wes never outright asks for money. If there was a way for me to give, I most definitely would.
I just wanted to thank Wes for helping Skeletor. Skelly is a pit bull which is a turn off for so many people. He could have easily walked away and left the dog for an inevitable death out on the streets but he didn't. He's made a real effort to care for this dog and asked for nothing in return. The world would be a better place if there more people were like him!
