BHRR's Rose & BHRR's Petal are very slowly settling in.

At 2:02 yesterday AM, they ate a wee bit as I was working on the computer and later in the day; they both came out of the open GIANT crate they both have taken to laying in and had a wee bit of a walk about. Very shy, nervous and unsure. YET, very sweet dogs. They are also drinking some.

If BHRR's Petal could not find BHRR's Rose, she found me. They are just very scared and lots of slow movements, patience and no direct eye contact is being given. They are sooooooooo worried.

They are both quite thin, yet; BHRR's Petal is very painfully thin and I would give her a body score of perhaps 4 max. out of 10. Under all that hair and matts and tuffs of fur; she is all ribs and spine plus hips. BHRR's Rose is in better shape and a body condition of 5/10 was given to her by ARC before transport.

I want to shout out a HUGE thanks to Petalia Boutique & Marie-Sophie for the collars, leash and some food donations they plan on making for BHRR's Rose & BHRR's Petal! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! 🙂

Some have been asking what else they both need; and what we need are the following on their wishlist:

1) packing blankets – they are not housebroken as of yet

2) $$$ for their Vet Bills – the need HWT's, heartworm meds, de-worming medications, presurgical bw, to be spayed, microchipping, BHRR's Petal needs her nose and eye looked at plus her hair loss, both have now been given a dose of Revolution and are being de-wormed and major grooming is in the works for BHRR's Petal.

I think BHRR's Petal is more around 1.5 years max and BHRR's Rose around 2 years of age. As they settle in and de-stress, we shall better be able to handle them and look at teeth and energy level etc.

Donations to their Vet Bills can be made in the following ways.
