Happy Happy Pug and a Happy New Year to All!

A very Happy Healthy 2009 to all my friends!!! I hope everyone is getting lots of love and good food!

For the first post of the year, I would like to share with you a happy story.

Remember, Puggy? The awfully emaciated poor pug that Dou Dou Mom rescued? Well.... Dou Dou Mom brought Puggy and Dou Dou the three-legged golden retriever to visit! First, a little background on Dou Dou, he was abandoned after an accident when he lost a leg and was a rescue too. When Dou Dou Mom rescued him, he also had a blow to his head where you can see white streaks of hair growing now.

Here's a "Before" pic of Puggy:

And, look at him now! What a drastic change after Dou Dou Mom's tender loving care for only two months!

Puggy has now been named Seven because he was rescued outside the 7-11 convenience store.

Big thank you to all of you who asked about Seven, thank you all so much for showing your concern. And a million thanks to Dou Dou Mom for giving Seven and Dou Dou a home filled with so much love. The world should be filled with more people like you!

Here's a video clip of Dou Dou and Seven, I hope you all enjoy it.

For my New Year wish, I hope all homeless animals will find their forever homes and be cared for like Seven and Dou Dou.

I will be back with more stories from my Christmas and New Year celebrations. Take care and keep warm, everyone!

I have no words, Dino.
I think Carla is a bit emotional, now.
There's still hope for this world, Dear Dino. And that's because there are Dou Dou's in it!

Thank you sooooo much for posting about Puggy, aka Seven! My mom thinks about him all the time! She wanted to adopt him so badly but we live too, too, too far away. DouDou Mom has done a wonderful job getting him healthy. He is such a handsome dog and so is Dou Dou! Dou Dou is missing the same leg as my cat sister Libby and he kind of looks like my big brother Ziggy, just a different color. Again, thank you so much for letting us know how Seven is doing. This is such a beautiful story!!!

Thank you thank you Dino for keeping us informed about DooDou and Seven. They look happy and healthy, specially Seven, boy oh boy, I can't see his ribcage anymore!
Please send their parents my best regards, I admire your good work, all of you are caring angels on earth!
I can't thank you enough! I have just witnessed a very genereous unconditional love that touched me deeply, thanks again!

They are like brothers.

anyway, happy new year!

Amber-Mae said...

This is truly amazing!!! I barely recognize him now. He doesn't even look like the emaciated Pug we used to know. Bravo! And that is a sad story about Dou Dou too. Such a handsome boy he is even without a leg. He roaches pretty good I must say! Thanks for sharing this with us all Dino!

Thor and Jack said...

Wow, no comment. You are really good in taking care of animals, I do love animals too. I saw the pictures of the puppy when it was sick, but now, can't believe you made it.. :) Congrats!

Thanks for helping the pug out. Eyes watered up seeing him and the Golden looking so healthy and happy. Thanks for the update.

delainalyn said...

What a heartwarming story! Those are 2 very HAPPY dogs! As a pug owner it broke my heart to see Seven's "before" picture. 2 months really made a difference! Blessings to Dou Dou Mom for rescuing these beautiful dogs!

luxmunk said...

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for taking in Seven. I can hardly type through the tears seeing his before pictures. Father of two (well one, Barker passed away last month at 12) pug brothers

Aaron said...

You are wonderful people for taking in this sweet, abandoned pug and giving him a forever home! Bless you!!!
