No Jackpot Being Hit Tomorrow
Sweet Pups Rescue and Sanctuary had to turn around from a rest stop in Tennessee and head home at 3am in the morning as 3 of the 29 dogs onboard the transport were bleeding. I’m guessing fecally. My rescue puppy Jackpot is one of them, but so far not as seriously as at least one of the dogs, who now needs to be hydrated asap.
Glenna, the president of Sweet Pups, is with the dogs, and she thinks that the dogs got into something from being with the puppies and which may be contagious for all the dogs. All the dogs in good rescue policy had been checked off as being well and healthy by their vets and had had a fecal test. She doesn’t think it is parvo or cocidia, but something else.
So everything is on pause until the transport gets home and sorts out what is wrong. Then they will try again to bring the dogs to us here in Maine. Note that Sweet Pups has made many transports for years and have only had to reschedule ONCE in all those years, due to weather.
Meanwhile, I have been panicked as I had a tire that was clearly leaking badly. How was I going to get to West Gardner on Sunday without a car? I was VERY lucky to get an appointment at Cooper Tires/Dan Foshay this morning at 9 to deal with the leak. It was a nail; it has been fixed; all is good again.
Life is never simple, is it?
But we pivot and move forward, as my son Bryan said to me recently. And he has some great examples of being flexible in his own life.
