Our Midwest @lotuspetfoods rep, Ashleigh, is literally amazing. We love it when she stops by our store to give us updates on Lotus. We actually expanded our Lotus dry foods line because she just knows her stuff! She gave us mason jar displays so as a customers you can actually see and feel the difference between generic kibble brands and a well formulated, baked kibble like Lotus. We have samples available here and we will have a Lotus demo on November 26th! #bentleyspetstuff. #lotuspetfood.
MISS LIBERTY !!! FOR ADOPTION!!!
This 5+ pound affenpinscher mix is waiting to choose her perfect family. Liberty is about 1-2 years old and in perfect health. Her extra special features are her black lips, underbite, and long legs. More importantly, "Tee" is happy, friendly and will twirl in 360's while you are making her dinner!
Her adoption fee is $300.
with info about your family, pets and daily schedule / general lifestyle.
Pablo's Mom, Alicia, is competing in the IRONMAN today in Louisville KY. I am tracking her with the IRONMAN app and she finished the swim with a great time and is now on the bicycling portion. Pablo and his sister are back home with gamma/grandpa in Illinois.
Wish her good luck! #ironman

Feel free to share far and wide.... some of the dogs waiting for adoption are featured on the photos... CUTIE PATOOTIE ALERT!!!
AXL MET HIS NEW PARENTS JUDY AND DICK YESTERDAY...
AND I HAVE ALREADY HEARD THAT HE HAD A GREAT 1st NIGHT !
His adopters found Axl on Petfinder and the Chiquita Chihuahua Rescue web page.....His bio discussed his shyness and quirks.......But these "cat-like" personality characteristics did not diminish this couple's determination to have Axl join their family. I know he will thrive in this home with only one other dog- (A 4 year old rescued "sister" named Amy) - and a calm, predictable environment where Axl's parents will be home all day. Sometimes it just takes 2 years for a rescued dog's ideal home to surface. ALWAYS worth the wait!

PLEASE PRAY FOR AXL ROSE!
HE INJURED HIS BACK LAST NIGHT ...HOPING IT IS NOT A RUPTURED DISC. Last night he couldn't walk, but did briefly bear weight this morning. He will be having X-rays, steroids and pain medication today when Kirstin evaluates him at Daisy Mountain Vet Hospital.
Axl is a youngster per Chiquita Chihuahua standards...but has been placed here because of his very shy personality. He could be available for adoption (Of course once his back is better) to an empathic pet owner who will be patient with socialization.

Thanks and stay tuned for an update this evening.
How an adopter turned into a hero!
This frightened little girl was abandoned in Phoenix- literally put out on the street from her home.
A CCR adopter from 2014, Maria, (Faith, now known as "Gala") took on the responsibility of rescuing the dog, bathing her, vetting her and found a family member who flew from Seattle to have little "Freya" join her family.
This dog had no idea how incredibly lucky she was to fall into such loving hands. The bottom photo shows how a rescuer's heart breaks a little when the dog you saved goes to their forever home.
Maria....Now you can not only call yourself an adopter, but a bonafide rescuer!
Love to you and Hector, Torito, and of course Gala !
MEET A NEW ARRIVAL WHO IS RECEIVING VETERINARY CARE AND BUNCHES OF TLC.
SAY HELLO TO LIBERTY.... who is battling a severe upper respiratory infection. She is a bit underweight, but per her vet exam with Kirstin is otherwise healthy and about 2 years old.
Liberty looks like a yorkie/affenpinscher mix. She weighs about 5 pounds.
Stay tuned for updates. I am working on getting her well and preventing any progression to pneumonia. She already has a couple of people that would like to meet her. I just ask for your patience, as she needs to have no symptoms before she can be out in public.

Lady Liberty has arrived. She has the same look on her face as Axl! She is an absolute love bug and very smart. Tiny but long legs like Tonto. Dakota does not want to share me. She is doing great with everybody here. Her antibiotic was switched today to Azithromycin and she already had a dose at Kirstin's office this afternoon. She said she is definitely less than 3, has wonderful teeth and is healthy except for her upper respiratory infection. We did not give her boosters today because It is best practice to never vaccinate when a dog is ill (The rationale that every dog needs a vet exam before getting their rabies vaccine. Kirstin also never vaccinates on the day of a surgery because she feels that if they start sinking, you don't know if it is the anesthesia or the vaccine. Anyway...thanks to HSOY, Cathy, Popi Mary, Whoever rode the van today and delivered all the animas safely to their destinations, to Bette for helping out once again !! And Marinellie for picking Liberty up from the vet this evening and bringing her to my house. And of course Kirstin, without whose kindness and knowledge I could never save any needy animals.
CeeCee , who has been in rescue since May, was seen by the veterinary ophthalmologist 2 weeks ago for a consultation. I was told she had minimal vision (a little worse than being "legally blind") in her left eye, which I suspected, and no vision in her right eye. Her eye pressures and tear production was normal for both eyes. She had a minor inflammation in the right eye, and the lens was displaced forward. I was given 3 medications to use (Not easy when she did not want anyone near her eyes). By the end of the 2nd week, her right eyeball looked like it had some bleeding or markedly increased vascularity, a green discharge and was clearly painful. Off to Daisy Mountain Vet she went....and CeeCee's right eye was removed. She had a bonus dental and remarkably has just about a full set of teeth, needing only 1 extraction.
She didn't feel too well for the first 24 hours, but then rallied and is back to her normal activity level. She is being very, very cautious navigating around the house, making sure she doesn't bump her stitches on any corners.
Other than her sight restrictions, CeeCee has no medical problems and will be available for adoption when she is fully recovered. She is about 4 years old and weighs about 4.5-5 pounds. If you are interested in CeeCee, please email the rescue :
And include information about your human and canine household members, experience with dogs, typical daily routine, etc.

Zelda continues to thrive and spends her days with Marinellie in her travel sac. Miss Z has been to Walmart, Trader Joe's, Staples, Ross, Boulder Creek HS, Anthem Prep, and of course, Starbucks. Zelda is a bit of a picky eater and every morning has a Starbucks Gouda and egg soufflé. At the time of her dental, Zelda not only had 20 teeth removed, but had a repair of a large fistula too. Her most recent weight was 2 lbs 7 ounces.
Thanks to all of the CCR supporters who contributed funds which enabled us to save and treat this senior gal. Compared to when she first arrived, Zelda is much happier, and rest assured, she is spoiled and living a full and active life!
