On January 18th, 2013 at 1:19 AM, I sent the following to Pamela to update her. We had a beautiful long conversation for about an hour on my way home on my hands free and I truly cannot wait to got to Cancun to assist them.
What they do in Mexico is INCREDIBLE! We think we see terrible things in Canada yet, talk about being in the trenches of rescue hell. Two days before BHRR's Cancun arrived, a GD was picked up and brought to their latest campaign – they spayed and neutered voer 1,300 animals in just 6 days in their latest campaign – and she had a gunshot wound. A lovely female Harlequin GD. The hole was small yet the blood clots that were coming out of her were enormous and she was suffering with major internal organ damage.
They see machete wounds and dogs are dying of distemper and erlichia(transmitted by ticks) and hit by cars just laying broken on the side of the road, abused, neglected and so much worse, it would truly break your heart. They work hard at educating and promoting responsible dog ownership. One place that I was told about is trying to care for over 200 dogs!!!
For more information on how you can help please visit CANDi and islaanimals!
Back to what I sent to Pamela:
He is here and settling in beautifully!!
Ate the very small supper I offered for him, had another pee – that is four since we took him off the flight and is resting well!!
I will send photos and updates and they shall be on his blog that I shall create on our website and sending the very short videos I have now to you!!
Thank you! Thank you!

**He will need to have a Tick Panel repeated in February, HWT, boosters, full exam, check out his hind end in more detail, full exam, microchip etc.**
Since he has arrived, he has been de-wormed and I have purchased Revolution for him. He needs another 25-30 pounds of muscle mass and weight.
