Mere, love your new wheels. Nice red color too!

Sunny, sorry to hear about you TX house but hope life was better.

ANJM Prayers for you little furry one.

Muffy, so sorry to hear about Cindy Lou Who

To all, sorry that I am posting 1 minute then gone for the next couple of hours, some times day(s). But it has been like that for a long while.

A friend and I rescued a snake one day. He/She was in the road in a some what quiet part of Philly.  My friend did most of the picking up, she's from MI.  I just petted the snake, and scolded it incase it might help the snake to not repeat that error. He/she really had a cute little face and soft not slimy skin.

Ya'll remember this article about the five legged puppy?    The guy that got outbid is suing the original owner for $4,000.00 (See Article after original article) And then he wants to try to sue to get the dog back  from the lady that out bid him at $4,000.00 and paid for the puppy's surgery.  This guy is a REAL Grinch, imo.

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/32113238/ns/today-today_pets/
[b]Success! 5-legged puppy’s extra limb removed
Rescued dog recovering well from surgery, which could total up to $2,000[/b]

Before her surgery, Lilly the puppy couldn't sit, walk or lay properly because of her extra leg. "She'd struggle to run up a hill or walk up a hill because she had to tug that thing behind her," says the dog's owner, Allyson Siegel.
updated 6:51 p.m. CT, Thurs., July 23, 2009

Lilly, the five-legged puppy at the center of a tug of war this week between a Charlotte, N.C., dog-lover and a Coney Island, N.Y., sideshow owner, had her extra appendage removed Thursday, PEOPLE Pets has learned.

The dog's new owner, Allyson Siegel — who purchased Lilly for $4,000 from Calvin Owensby, and outbid sideshow owner John Strong — says the 6-week-old terrier-Chihuahua mix had the surgery at a veterinarian's office, but preferred not to disclose the location. The operation took place amid reports that Strong was planning to file a lawsuit to get the dog back.

"Last night I called the surgeon and said, 'Will you take a look at her to see if she's healthy enough, see if you think that she could possibly have the surgery now?' And he did, and she did," Siegel tells PEOPLE Pets. Though the dog is still recovering and will not return home for another 24 to 36 hours, Siegel says she's "doing great. She's recovering well, no complications."
'This was always about Lilly'
Siegel, whose story was originally reported in the New York Daily News, says she will pay for the surgery bill — which could total up to $2,000 — with donations that she's received from several people who have heard of the dog's plight.

"In my mind it's kind of over. Just let it be over," she says, referring to Strong's legal threats. "I'm very happy that Lilly is fine and that she's going to be a normal dog. And get to have a normal life and not be in a cage. I don't personally have anything against him, Mr. Strong, I don't know him. This was really always about Lilly."

Prior to the surgery, the puppy couldn't sit, walk or lay properly because of the extra leg (which had six toes and protruded from her stomach). "She'd struggle to run up a hill or walk up a hill because she had to tug that thing behind her," says Siegel.

When she returns home, the dog will be running around like any other puppy — though she'll have to wear a cone to prevent her from biting her stitches. "She's got a lot of energy,” Siegel says of the Lilly's personality. "She plays hard and sleeps hard."

TV judge to hear
5-legged puppy case
TV show will air September 21

Published : Wednesday, 12 Aug 2009, 11:57 AM CDT

CHICAGO (AP) - The case of a puppy that used to have five legs and was saved from a Coney Island animal show is going before a court TV judge in Chicago.

Plaintiff John Strong operates a New York animal show that features disfigured animals. He's suing the dog's original owner, Calvin Owensby, for $4,000.

Strong says Owensby reneged on an agreement to sell him the animal for $3,000. Owensby says they didn't sign a contract.

Owensby sold the Chihuahua-terrier mix to a North Carolina woman who wanted to keep the pooch out of the animal show. She's had the dog's fifth leg removed.

Former New York district attorney Jeanine Pirro's show is being taped Wednesday. It will air on Sept. 21.

Strong says if he wins the case, he plans to fight in court to reclaim the dog.

Anyone who would make a living off of poor deformed animals is SICK!! What a BASTAXX!!!

And she already had the leg removed and he still wants it........hmmmm.....why???

Somebody needs to have a long "talk"  with this sicko and his treatment of animals!! 

Well, this guy makes his money displaying disfigured animals.  He wants to make more money by suing the guy he says promised to sell him the pup.  He then wants to take the pup away from the lady that outbid him, even though the pup's already had the surgery.   The pup doesn't have value to him, because he can't display it as disfigured.  He's either just plain mean as a snake (speaking of snakes!) or I think he's trying to get more money.  He thinks the lady or the public will pony up a few thousand more.  Greedy, greedy, greedy.  JMHO 

I think you are right!  I hope the judge knocks his socks off!  Besides him being scum of the earth anyone who goes to see these poor animals are sick too!!

I go to pieces and can't read or listen to anykind of animal abuse, I can't even watch a tv show or movie if an animal gets hurt or dies, been like that since a kid. I use to love Lassie as a kid, but any indication that Lassie was going to get hurt I would run out of the room, Lassie Come Home, really got to me also.

me too nrcg.....I wouldn't go see Marley and ME ....everyone laughed at me but I didn't want to see the ending!!

Sunny - you're story about setting your deck on fire to kill a little snake was so funny.     

I think I might have done the same thing, though.        I'm terrified of snakes.

I was clueless to this movie...thought it was a kid-friendly one since all the kids seemed to like it.  I was at a friends house and they put it on...throughout the whole movie everyone kept saying how Marley reminded them of Leroy when he was a pup.  I was still clueless till the end...then I got up and went home bawling my eyes out!  Some of my friends apparently aren't animal lovers.  It was horrible
