Quite an impressive set of sunlit ears, eh? We tell Wilbur he’s looks less like a Chihuahua and more like a Bathuahua. Alayne took this photo early the other morning as the sun was streaming in the solarium in the dog wing. Wilbur had come down the hall from the living room (where he sleeps) and?found the shaft of sun hitting the bed:
First thing in the morning he’s always Mr. Out-and-About, and loves coming down to the dog wing as we’re letting the other dogs out. (We think he likes to see how the other 99% live.) Sometimes he’s underfoot, dodging the bigger blind dogs as we take them out, weaving his way through the four-footed traffic as he explores. But more often than not, if there’s sun coming through the solarium, he parks himself on a bed in the sunlight and sacks out like this.

It’s so nice to see Wilbur. I just adore him. That’s a nice blanket he’s got there on his bed. Looks cozy. Funny how the littlest dogs pick the largest beds. I clicked on the photo to make it larger – just to be sure his little tongue was hanging out. Sure enough, there it was! ha ha Glad to see you little guy!

How adorable is that!! Something about sunbeams, dogs and cats. My two follow the beams to different windows and get their Vitamin D. Wilbur, you’re too cute to be a bathuahua (the word is bigger than he is!!)
Just doesn’t get any cuter than this little guy! Adorable. Jazzie (my cat) always finds the sun too – doesn’t matter if it’s a 90 degree day, she will go lay on the carpet where the sun is shining…….I can see doing that in the colder weather, but having long fur and all, I just don’t get it. Glad to have you guys back – you were missed!

What a sweetie. They do love their sun beams. Glad to have the RDF blog back.

Wilbur looks so relaxed and content, lying in that small pool of sunshine, enjoying its gentle warmth…
It makes one’s heart melt, doesn’t it?:-)

He’s so cute!!! Those years must pick up some type of signal, I’m sure!!! I call these sun puddles & Andre follows them throughout the house during the day.
I LOVE BATS WILBUR. DON’T PAY ANY ATTENTION TO WHAT THEY CALL YOU. YOUR STILL AS CUTE AS A BAT.
Mae Rall says
I love that Wilbur! He is just the cutest little guy!
Aw, I just love Wilbur. He’s no fool, he knows where the best place to lay down is. And Wilbur, don’t worry, those ears are the best. My dog Radar has way big bat ears. Those ears give both of you character 🙂
Hi, I love what you are doing for these animals! I love animals myself and have a question for you if you don’t mind. I recently lost an amazing pet kitten named Chula to an unknown ailment and am hoping to get a new pet sometime. I have a dog and my parents are animal lovers as well. I was interested in asking my parents about getting a disabled pet, they’re adorable and I really want to make a difference in an animals life. I had in mind a disable kitten or maybe a small dog like Wilbur, he’s adorable! I can’t seem to find a disabled pet near me though. I live in the quad city area on the Iowa side. I move a lot and often visit the places I used to live and I might even get to go to your dog farm one day, but I thought to ask for your help first. (I know I talk a lot) heeheehee 🙂

Amanda, I’d suggest you contact the local shelters and rescue groups in your area and let them know you’re interested in adopting a disabled pet. That way when one comes in, they can contact you. Also, keep looking on Petfinder.com. Those listings will describe them as “special needs,” which sometimes means a disability.
