I know, I know. Let me tell you a story ....
You all remember my Aunty Karen with the GINORMOUS heart who totally adores me, right?
Well. On New Year's Eve, Aunty K got a call that there was a pup in real bad shape along the side of the road. Aunty K offered to go get the pup and take it to the SPCA for loving care, but the SPCA people told her they were so, so sorry, but they did not have any space available for anymore pups, even one as special as this one.
Well, we all know what happens next right? Aunty K said "Welcome to the Bar None Ranch (her house), Skinny Pup. We are going to take awesome care of your skinny little self. We will get you some spa treatments for that wrinkly bald skin and a pedicure for your bad paw, feed you a few gourmet meals, and you will be good as new."

So, before he knew it, Skinny was wrapped up in warm blankets, getting teeny tiny meals of chicken and broth. He also go a special bath, spent hours in Aunty K's lap, and was later whisked away to the vet for a check up. Aunty Karen posted some updates on her Facebook page and Skinny Pup, little by little is starting to feel better. His biggest issue is a broken leg that needs some pretty quick attention.
Here is where we all come in puppers. Can you do me a REAL BIG LIKE HUGE favor and send Skinny Pup all the Power of the Paw, positive thoughts and warm hugs you can muster today. He is going to have surgery on his leg and because of the condition of his skin, there is a big risk of infection. You can tell from looking into those gorgeous giant eyes that skinny wants to feel better and spread some love. This is the first step in a long road to recovery for a dog that has had a tragic start -- I sure would appreciate it if you'd keep him in your thoughts today!
