Freddy Girl is our November 29, 2015 Pup of the Week

It was a little over five years ago that our human friend Gina Busch followed her heart dog Pepsi to Rainbow Bridge.  I try to visit them once a week.  She is a very special and very sweet dog Mom who now has hundreds of unrescued dogs that she takes care of here at the Bridge.  Humans are rare in our section and when one arrives we all want to share their love and Gina has lots of love to give.  
Gina left two dogs behind on the mortal side:  Freddy and Sota.  Ten years earlier Freddy and Sota would have gone into a shelter and there is no way of knowing what would have happened to them.  But we now live in the age of social media where all those who love and respect dogs are connected.  Freddy and Sota never saw the inside of a shelter.  Thanks to some great social networking parents Freddy and Sota soon found homes.  
Carol Johnson Issacson said that she would love to provide a new home for Sota and Tommy Tunes’ Dad Steve said he would be very happy to provide a home for Freddy.  Many people had to devote time and energy to transport Sota and Freddy to their new homes and despite a snowstorm, it came off without a hitch.  Sota and Freddy are very happy and well taken care of and Gina is so thankful that these parents gave her beloved pups such special lives.
While Freddy, whose name became Freddy Girl to avoid confusion, found herself living with one of the world’s great dog Dads, she also found herself living with the world famous, Hall of Fame dog, Tommy Tunes.  Freddy Girl, who had been overshadowed by Pepsi, was more than happy to let Tommy remain in the spotlight.  Even when, with great fanfare, Tommy crossed the River of Life to the immortal side Freddy still let him do the main blogging for his pack.
But now Freddy Girl is in the spotlight and not by her choosing   Two years ago she had a molar removed and the  wound never healed.   Recently she has been lethargic and not wanting to eat. She was drooling and it was thick and gooey.   Daddy Steve took her to the doctor who said the surgical wound had become infected and spread to other teeth.  On Wednesday Freddy is going to have surgery and she could certainly use your prayers.   
Daddy Steve doesn’t have to worry about Freddy Girl being alone during her surgery  Both Tommy and Gina will be there with her to comfort her and to do everything they can to make sure she returns to her Dad.  
Freddy has had the pleasure of two different and wonderful parents in her life.  She has lost one parent and traveled across the country to get to another.  She is a beautiful beagle pup and like most beagles she is not going to let a hole in the head slow her down.
Wishing you a safe surgery and a quick recovery Freddy and that you quickly get home to Dad.

Bishop Arrives at Rainbow Bridge

  The ground shook, the wind bent the trees, and a tremendous howl arose amongst the angels. It was clear that something big was crossing the river:  Czar Bishop had come to Rainbow Bridge. The Czar, son of Miss  Kimberli, brother to the legendary Apollo and Napa, had used every heartbeat and more as he fought to stay with his mom and continue teaching all the orphaned dogs that his mother took in and found new homes for them to live.  When word spread of Bishop's arrival, dogs came from every corner of the Bridge to pay homage to him and greet the incredible dog who inspired his mom to save many other dogs. Bishop also helped his mom create one of the most entertaining Facebook profiles. Transcribed were the conversations between Bishop and his mom ranging from the new students two what he needed at the store. Few dogs have been blessed with a bigger heart than Bishop. He had his collection of pets he doted
