Welcome to the April 14, 2007 Saturday night edition of the Lone Star News!

If you want, please read the news ONLINE at the blog site.  And, keep checking back ONLINE to see daily updates!

We have some great news to share tonight.  About Charo Worth, Kula Parks and a couple of happy adoption stories from this week.

And, PLEASE do not forget to SIGN UP TO OUR NEW NEWSLETTER SITE.  Microsoft will discontinue this newsletter service on June 1, so to continue to stay connected to Lone Star, please SIGN UP TO THE NEW SITE.  We can only add a few people each day so hope to get everyone transferred over asap.

Ok, on with the news…





Karen picked up Charo late this afternoon. Here she is with a vet tech that took EXCELLENT care of her. And, wonder of all wonders, the vet clinic stood by their estimate so we need no more funding for her right now. Here’s the report…

Charo is home and doing good. She’ll continue on her meds and I’ll do cappage treatments (thumping her sides to get her to cough). She’ll go back in a week for a checkup. They took really good care of her. Thanks to everyone for keeping her in your thoughts and prayers.



Yes, you heard it right, the little cruelty confiscation lhasa boy is improving with physical therapy.  His foster mom has his bad leg in a splint now and he is undergoing hydrotherapy to improve the muscle and control in his leg.  The physical therapist was amazed at the improvement in one short week.  Go Kula.  More in a few days. 



As you probably know, we adopt to people all over the US.  We have taken dogs to places from New Jersey to Florida to California.  The most difficult part of adopting out of state is actually getting the dog there.  In the case of Tootie Collins (for whom you all donated to fix a cherry eye) and Elmo Oaks, these two lucky fluffs hitched a ride with the good friend of one of our foster moms, Lynda.

Here is Lynda’s account of the trip Tootie and Elmo made to Midland, TX from Dallas….

My good friend Nora agreed to meet the Morgan’s at a restaurant when she got into Midland.  To her surprise, all the patrons, the waitress and maybe even the cook came out to greet the pups Wanda and Jim were so excitedly waiting for at 9:00 pm.  Elmo immediately jumped in Wanda’s arms and cleaned her face, while Tootie was much more lady-like.  All in all, it was a wonderful home-coming for these two darling pups.

Once the pups got to their new home, we received this happy note….

Nora has probably told you that the transport went without a hitch. Tootie and Elmo are just perfect! They are so cute and sweet and such good dogs. We just got home and they have been in every corner of the house. We didn’t have a single accident unless you count that Elmo felt called upon to mark one of the displays at PetSmart! We brought home a trunk full of stuff for them. It’s going to be a challenge to get them settled down they’re so excited, but they settled right down last night. I was afraid Tootie might be sick she was so lethargic, but she was fine this morning, energetic and active all day. She already climbs into my lap and goes to sleep. They will light up our lives. I’ll send pictures.

Thanks again, for everything you did and all the things you sent to get us through the first day. All of you at Lone Star have been just wonderful. I wasn’t at all optimistic about this process when I started, so I’ve become a believer!

ANOTHER happy adoption!!  Photos coming soon.





Yes, just weeks after almost emergency surgery for bladderstones, his forever mom saw his beautiful charcoal gray face and decided THAT was the one she wanted. So, Friday morning, stellar volunteer Gary boarded a plane for Arizona with Dawson in tow.

He’ll spend the weekend with one of our volunteers in Phoenix and then move to Tucson on Tuesday.

Yeah! Go Dawson!!

And, Dawson send you all big, sloppy kisses – if not for you, he may not be alive to be traveling to Arizona.



We are starting up the CALENDAR CONTEST again!!  Finally, we’ve figured out how to FIX the problem we had last year.  Since we put the email address on the website, some email harvesters took it and has been using it to send spam.  Consequently, our mail box was overloading day after day.  So, we’ve set up a different website and the email address is harder for the automated harvesters to spot, so hopefully it will work.  So, enter your baby ASAP.  Go HERE to enter.  And see what we did with the calendar last here HERE.  Since we’re well into the fourth month of 2007, I’ve cut the price from $25.99 to $19.99.  These calendars are absolutely BEAUTIFUL if I do say so.  They are printed on exceptional paper and the portraits are stunning.  To enter your fluff, email the picture along with the name and birthdate to me at TERESA@digitaldogart.com.

Some of our most consistent supporters have commercial businesses.  Please support them if you are interested in the type of products they have available.  I will try to feature one or two each newsletter.  This time, please check out NATTY PRODUCTS – if you’re into having a SPA DAY at home, this is the place to go.  Another great site, Campbell’s Pet Beds and Steps, has some wonderful, sturdy pet ramps, steps and beds.  These people routinely donate articles for the dog show, auctions and raffles.  You cannot find a better-constructed ramp.
