Sept 9, 2013:
was a beautiful day at Howling Heights! Carol Ann, now known as Cali (short for Calypso!), was officially adopted by her new
parents! Congratulations to Malki & Gary! And of course, we can't leave out her new beagle sister ~ Soca! They are now
one big happy family! These happy endings (or rather, happy new beginnings) are what keep us going, giving us plenty of reason
to continue to come to the rescue of beagles in need. Big beagley thanks to our Adopters - not only for giving our beagles
lasting and loving permanent homes, but for inspiring us time and again to never stop doing what we do.

Please keep Carol Ann in your thoughts today! She's gone in
for her surgery as of this morning!

Yep, Carol Ann has warmed our hearts like a
fresh baked croissant!
I know you're probably thinking…what kind of a name is Carol Ann for a little French
maiden from Quebec? I dunno. I just kinda liked it, ever since the
little girl in the movie Poltergeist. She's heeeeeerrrreeee!
So let's just say Carol Ann
is from Texas and moved to Quebec to learn a second language and take in some Canadian culture! Little Carol Ann, no bigger than a croissant in fact, arrived to our waiting arms last
night. We thank the wonderful gals from T.E.A.M. Dog Rescue for bringing her to us! Carol Ann was just one of several dogs
they rescued from Quebec this past weekend! By the time they got to us, they were exhausted but still had the energy to gush
over this beautiful baby girl. Believe me, she's easy to gush over!
After spending the night
with Yours Truly, she scurried over to our vet's today for an examination --- not to mention a ton of gushing courtesy of
the staff. So far, so good! We were both in agreement she's a spry little 9 year old at most. Heart is ticking beautifully!
Just a bit of tartar to the teeth so should just need a cleaning and, paws crossed, no extractions. Aside from that, our vet
only detected a bit of arthritis in the joints so we'll get her on a supplement for that. We couldn't make out a spay scar
so that will be investigated when she goes in for her dental cleaning next week. Today, she had all her shots and her Heartworm
test so it's always adviseable to give them a week before any surgery. This, of course, means Madamoiselle Carol Ann will
remain in my care until she's had her operation. At that point, we'll be looking for a lasting home for her. Pending blood
results tomorrow, if all comes back dandy, we think this little girl deserves an adoptive home rather than a foster home.
She's a dear little soul and the time with us should give enough indication as to what would be a good fit for her!

We got an email from our friends at T.E.A.M. Dog Rescue a few days ago. They've been
doing a lot of rescuing from the Quebec shelters. This little girl wound up in one of the rural pounds there, where time is
always running out. Yet another stray with a story we'll never know. Guessed at 10 to 12 years old, this wee little thing
is as sweet as she looks - great with dogs, cats & humans alike. We're not about to let this treasure be lost forever.
She's got a ride to Toronto this weekend if we'll take her. Don't worry, we'll take her. We didn't hesitate to say "yes",
even if we don't exactly have a foster home set up yet. It's a risk we're willing to take. She's our kinda beagle.
