MWCR has been fortunate to be the periodic recipient of dog food and treats, as well as a few bags of cat food, as part of a local pet food distribution. This is being distributed to our foster homes.

MWCR President Terry Libro snapped these pictures of MWCR members Kitty and Arnie Hilk and Barb and Dave Gibson working hard in the off-and-on again drizzle to unload the semi-trailer, sort the items, and load Arnie’s pick-up.

Hello. My husband Ron and I adopted Daryl, whom we renamed Charger, in October 2008. Our hearts are saddened to say we had to put Charger down on July 1, because of a brain tumor. He was fine Sunday afternoon and in the evening he started limping and he went quickly downhill from there. He was the happiest dog I have ever met. He had the greatest “corkscrew tail wag” in the world and lots of kisses to welcome us home after a long day of work. We have been blessed to have him as long as we did we will miss him everyday.

What a week it was! My job sent me to an out-of-state conference. It was my first extended time away from Bailey since I adopted him in December. Mommy was a worried Mom. Sarah Rebernick was my adoption coordinator and had taken plenty of calls/texts from me on questions. Mommy also texted Laura Michlig throughout the conference. Laura was Bailey’s sitter. Laura was really super by replying in Bailey’s voice saying he missed Mommy too. Then Sarah met up with Terry Libro in Eau Claire and brought back yummies for Bailey and other furry ones in Wisconsin. Sarah and Laura hooked up and Laura stored Bailey’s goodies in her shop. Along the way, Laura groomed Bailey and sent Mommy a picture of him all spruced up. Mommy saw the picture and her heart ached for Bailey. Soon the torture was over and Mommy was able to pick up Bailey. Oh, how smart he looked! Laura says he’s a ladies man. Mommy thinks so, too.

A BIG thanks to Laura, Sarah and Terry. You made my week away less stressful. You all are super! Bailey says thank you, too! – Sharon and Bailey
