Happy Halloween!

For some people it's their favorite holiday. It is one of the few chances during the year when we have an excuse to dress up, down, be a super hero, be provocative, or for men to wear a tutu. I've seen a few costumes already this weekend, the most ironic being being a tall homeless man wearing an extra tall Uncle Sam hat. But have you ever seen a gargoyle dressed up as a lion?



So many people still write and ask for updates on our unusual Nelly that I'll use this opportunity to let you all see for yourselves. She's as beautiful as ever and is as heavy as ever - which in this case is a good sign - meaning that her babesiosis is in remission. She's still with one of our trainers (Sara and boyfriend Jared) living the good life with a house full of dogs. We visit her when we meet with Sara and it's always a highlight of my week - you know how it is when a dog makes ya feel extra special. She can lift spirits with the best of them and her piggy snorts are a such a hoot. Best Halloween to you all!

Thanks for the update Tim! I think about sweet Nelly all the time and I'm awfully happy to hear she's living the good life with Sara. Next year I'll send her a lobster costume from Maine so she can be a gargoyle crustacean!

I love the grin. No matter how bad yesterday has been for any of us, canine or human, with the right attitude today can make us smile.

Happy Halloween to all! My neighborhood here in DC started jumpin' Friday night, and will probably go on through tonite. We have our annual open house at the shelter today. Glad to hear Nelly is doing so well! Shows what a little extra lovin' can do.

What a courageous little lion she is!

And there's nothing wrong with a few extra pounds....makes you a "woman of substance". Very happy to hear the babesiosis is in remission.

The Nelly Report is always much appreciated and guaranteed to cause uncontrollable smiling!

I'm simply in love with Nelly. I just can't get enough of her sweetness. She reminds me that no matter what life throws at you - you choose how you respond. I am trying hard to live with her grace. Thank you Nelly!

Nelly gives her best to all and told me that next year she is going to dress up as a dragon.
