NOTICE: UPCOMING BHRR EVENTS:
1. We are working on a silent auction to raise much-needed funds to pay for Miss Leah’s and Mr. Ernie’s vet bills. We are hoping to run for St. Pat’s Day!
If you have any items you may like to donate, please do email
2. ONGOING – On February 21st, 2013, I received a most delightful and touching email from a woman named Allie MacAlister that is so very active in helping others
She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.

10% of sales of her products will come to BHRR!
*You can purchase t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, totes, greeting cards and SO much more! She will be adding products regularly.

BHRR’s Ernie was scheduled to have his next recheck, boosters, etc., yesterday, January 8th, yet his foster home reached out to say that he had been exposed to Kennel Cough.
So, unfortunately, until he recovers, we cannot move forward with his boosters and then schedule his x-rays under sedation, bilateral entropion surgery, neuter, etc.
BHRR’s Ernie – our newest addition to BHRR!
He is a DDB, ~2 years old, and a ham!
He has a possible fractured tail, hip, and knee issues, and needs bilateral entropion surgery and to be neutered. He came into the rescue quite skinny and has been putting on the weight nicely.
We shall be doing X-rays on his tail, hips plus knees when he is under for his neuter. He is far too painful to attempt to manipulate him without sedation. We have him on Gabapentin for pain management.
He has been dewormed, is on flea/tick meds, has had his first vaccines and is back for another recheck and boosters in January.
His bills to date are over $1,200.
He has been treated for ear infections, and we have him on a fish-based food to help with his skin and any possible allergies.
Thank you to his special secret Santas for the pressies, including a Wiggle Bumz collar, leash, treats, toys, and an orthopedic dog bed.
This picture is from his foster home with some of his goodies.

We will follow our Lion King theme as we have done with previous DDBs we have assisted and call him “Ernie”. This is after Ernie Sabella, the voice of Pumbaa in The Lion King.
