Brando - The Wild One

Brando as Johnny in
The Wild One

Johnny: [opening narration] It begins here for me on this road. How the whole mess happened I don't know, but I know it couldn't happen again in a million years. Maybe I could of stopped it early, but once the trouble was on its way, I was just goin' with it. Mostly I remember the girl. I can't explain it - a sad chick like that, but somethin' changed in me. She got to me, but that's later anyway. This is where it begins for me right on this road. 

Brando is a new Pug in Town, Blogville, that is. He was rescued by Saint J and brought to his home where many other LUCKY rescues also live. His story is sad and this week it got sadder when it was discovered that he is suffering from hookworms, whip worms, ear mites and, worst of all, HEARTWORMS. In a way though, he is so lucky. His new family noticed something was not right with him, took him to the vet and immediately started treatments to cure him. It isn't cheap, to say the least. But that is what SOMEONE who LOVES you does for you, no questions asked and no return expected.

That is called love and ALL PETS deserve this kind of treatment.

So we here in BLOGVILLE are calling on all pets - dog, cat, rabbit, horse, cow, gerbil. . . whatever - to send some powerful JUJU Brando's way to help him heal and spend the rest of his days without pain and with love all around him.

But this story is more than a call for JUJU. This is about that insidious killer HEARTWORM. It kills many many pets every year and it is totally preventable. So learn the facts (follow this link), get your pet tested today (our humane society does testing for less than a baseball game!), and follow with a preventative treatment every month. Your pet will be healthier and you will be happier knowing you did the BEST for your BEST FRIEND.

Ugh, I hate hate HATE heartworms!! So many of my cousins at LBR have had to go through HW treatment too. So did my sissy Cinderella, and she said it's miserable! But I'm SO glad that Brando is getting the help he needs, and he'll be feeling grreat in no time at all! We're sending him powerful boxer vibes to get well super-soon!

I think heartworms are HORRIBLE too. I wish the would ALL DIE and go AWAY and Leave us ALONE.

Keeping our paws crossed for Brando and also sending good vibes his way. Heartworm is terrible. We've rescued two or three dogs in past years who came to us heartworm positive. Thankfully all were cured and lived long, happy lives. Our Benji is fighting cancer right now but he is also a heartworm survivor.

I'm glad Brando found nice people to take care of him. We just got our pups tested for Heartworms and started them on Heartworm preventative.

certainly like your web-site but you have to test the spelling on quite a
few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and
I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth however I'll definitely come again again.
