Lady Grace and Puppies Update
Saturday, 20 November 2010

Lady Grace's life took a turn for the worse when she nipped a vet tech while in for a check up.


She was put in bite quarantine at DAS and is scheduled for release this Friday, the 19th. Her eight pups turned 4 weeks old while in custody with Mom. (Visit Larry Powell's November 12th column for Lady Grace's story.) This is the update.


We have found a group in Tucson, Arizona --- In the Arms of Angels -- who will take the whole family into their care. We must observe and vet her for at least 10 days after the DAS stay to be sure the family is healthy, so they will be housed at DKC until December 2nd. On the 2nd Al Pace, transporter par excellence, will drive the whole family to Arizona.


In a recent volunteer poll, the puppies were named: Garth, Garrett, Gatsby, Gretel, Gretchen, Gidget, Godiva and Gabby.


Say a prayer for Grace's and her puppies' health and safety. Hopefully this story will have a happy ending, with a safe landing -- In the Arms of Angels!


Anyone wishing to donate to help defray medical and transportation costs, please do so via Pay Pal or send a check to the shelter (and specify Lady Grace). This sweet dog has had a guardian angel all along, but could use a little more support to finish her incredible journey!


This is Lady Grace and little ones at two weeks. Now they are 4, and will be 6 weeks at transport time.
