I’m overdue in sharing some photos that Tracy W. in Vermont has sent us of blind Billy, who she adopted last December. She reports that Billy is doing very well indeed, as these photos of him in some of his favorite places show. Above, under the comforter. Next, in Tracy’s lap along with the cat:
Then, waiting for Tracy’s partner Karl to finish a meal and hoping a) something falls off the table or b) something is left that Karl will offer up as a treat:
Notice the Beagle nose pointed skyward (i.e., in the direction of food!).
Finally, here’s Billy snuggled on the couch:
One very happy blind boy, thanks to Tracy and Karl!
Shelter Challenge Is Back
After several months of retooling, the Shelter Challenge is back with a new contest starting today. This is a “beta” round and runs only until May 17th. You can vote here: ShelterChallenge.com For people who rely on these blog posts for the link … please just bookmark the site the next time you logon. We’re only blogging once a week right now and you can vote every day, so the best way to keep that link handy is to save it to your favorites.
“Beta” means the new system is still being refined and tested. I was able to vote today without a problem. However, please note: I cannot fix anything with the Shelter Challenge. I have no “inside information” or special access to the people who run it. They don’t respond to our emails either. If you encounter an issue or some frustration, I cannot help resolve it. Hopefully this new system will be better than the one they had last year that proved so frustrating to so many of us. I guess we’ll find out!
