Thank you, your simple clicks every day really truly brings money into Rikki’s, and the money that comes to Rikki’s is spent caring for the animals!!!

is doing well this morning.  She thinks she had a total recovery at 4:30 am and want to go OUT and run thru the fields.  Of course after all this surgery, mom and Lena won’t let her out.  She can only go out on leash and she’s not allowed to run or jump.  Just walk slow.  And she’s going stir crazy.  She’s turning circles, clawing at the door, even chewed off the door knob!  The cone of shame didn’t stop that!!!

She’s not eating dog food now.  All she wants to eat is chicken slices, chicken luncheon slices, frozen (after Lena cooks them) chicken strips and chicken nuggets, and those chicken dog treats that is like dried up chicken. 

So it you’re coming to visit her - please bring lots!!!!   And she can go on nice slow walks if you can control her and keep her on leash and not running and jumping.

Gosh she’s in there barking and howling something awful to get out!!!  And Beauty is barking and howling trying to break in to help her escape.   this is gonna be a long 10 days to recovery!!!

Please pray hard that her pathology report comes back, benign, all good, no bad cells, all bad stuff gone - and that she has many many more years to run the fields and play!!!!

Mike got up real early this morning and rented a great big truck and is headed over the mountains and thru the woods and over the rivers to go far far away to Purina’s packaging plant and he’s gonna pick up 6,776 pounds of nums for us !!!!

And I think we should pray it's all Fancy Feast... and it could be !!!

Well ok, at least canned food, lots and lots of caned food. If it's all dry food, it will last us 47 days!!!

Thank you Purina and Thank you MIKE !!!!!

And please pray with me that Mike has a safe and easy trip over the river and mountains as he drives that great big truck.

Come on out mid afternoon and help us unload !!!!

Thank you for the sun shiny day that will make it all easier!!!

I love your letters !

Your story (yesterday) reminded me of the time my CAT locked me out of my car on the PA Turnpike in a snowstorm. The guy who stopped to help was scared of my Dobie, also in the car, so I sat on the hood and waited for  a state trooper who unlocked the door!   --- Judi

I’m so glad I got my KiKi to kiss!!!
