A group project. Lolo is home.

Lolo - the bionic blue - is home for keeps, thanks to everyone who said 'Yes' to a once very out of luck foreclosure casualty and shelter dog.

The work that went into saving this particular dog's life is above and beyond anything we've done as a collective before... Starting with the shelter that took her in, to Pit Ed Campers who first identified her as a dog with the right stuff, to the Badrappers who worked to keep her sane in the shelter while we sorted out her bad knees at several vet offices, to all the donors who helped pay her huge bill, to the foster home that raised their hand to help her recuperate, to the surgeon who did the marvelous work of making her whole again, to the Pit Ed trainers who helped her get her manners back in order once she was feelin' fat and sassy ... and finally, to Thomas and Meg, the Oakland couple who committed to making her part of their family. Whoops. We can't forget the two cats who are still not happy to be sharing a home with a blue ball of energy. Sorry, cats.

Whew! Can we collapse yet? Lolo, you nearly wore us out but you were sure worth it. Welcome home, darling.

Oh - LOLO. Your face looked so familiar. So we went back and found your photo taken real early December 2008, right around the time of the amazing trek BAD RAP and Best Friends and many others made to help the freezing Oklahoma dogs. Your story is what life is all about. So many wonderful people helping you. One dog. We are very - full of joy and - heart - to read about you in your new home. Namaste

We are very fortunate to have Lolo in our lives. All the hard work and love that was bestowed on her is paying off. The cats are getting used to the fact that she is part of our family now. Thank you BADRAP. MEg & I look forward to helping the cause.
M&T.

Good work all around. Sometimes it's worth a little extra to save a special one. We have a blue boy at the shelter now who is a mess! (mange maybe?) But coming along. Try a little clicker training with the cats and they'll come 'round, too. Teach everyone "sit pretty" and soon they'll be best buds.

After reading this blog and the vickdogsblog for about two years now, I've decided in a future life, I hope I come back as a foster dog in Letti's house.

Wonderful news! She was one I kept coming back to... wishing I could snatch her up! Glad to hear she's found her match! :) Happy Thanksgiving, LoLo!
