All in the Family
Phoebe Ozzy Millie


Bloodhound / Labrador Retriever

Earnest found us during an ice storm that knocked the power out for a full week. The day the power came back on, my husband pulled into the driveway and found him in our backyard. He was emaciated and had ice on his belly, so naturally he came inside. We already had a dog, so we fed him some of her food and gave him water. The next day, we harnessed him to put him outside and he ran away, cutting his chest in the process. Someone found him and returned him to us (thanks to the tags we got on day one). Earnie went to the vet to get stitched up and we discovered heartworms. Six months of intensive treatment for the worms and a horrible bladder infection passed, and he's a happy, if pathetic looking dog.

he was meant to be yours. Nothing short of a miracle, thanks to you. He's anything but pathetic, have you seen yourself Earny? You're outstanding, in more ways than one. You and your missus.

I second JanaS!!! There is NOTHING pathetic about this adorable, sweet, lovable, huggable baby. Thank GOD, you guys found him, and you saved his lovable life. I'm sure you're all a big happy family. I would love to give Earnie the biggest hug and kisses...what a doll.

Ernie is a lovely fellow. He has so much love in his eyes, and who could resist those jowls. I know what you mean by "pathetic"'s a card they play to garner empathy and treats, and it works every time. Kudos to you for rescuing. Animals that are saved know it and are grateful every day. Best life to all of you. Hugs from Oliver & Henry, and their Mum.
