Many BRAT volunteers have asked about the Las Vegas puppy who was surrendered to a vet because he needed life-saving surgery. Below is an update from his foster mom, Michele. She is calling him by his original name since he was only called Azi for one week by the family who surrendered him to the vet. His vet bills to date (incurred by BRAT) have topped $1100. If you wish to donate to help cover this extraordinary expense please send checks to Debbi Johnson, BRAT's treasurer, at 7255 Jermyn Cove, Germantown, TN, 38138 or click on this link to donate thru Network for Good http://www.basenjirescue.org/Donate.htm Thanks to all who have shown such sincere concern for his welfare!

Update on Tyco:
The youngster is doing well. He has a huge appetite and is starting to act Basenji silly. His is still growling a bit, and it may be because he is in the crate and has no idea what is going on, but I will have to see in about 10 days. If Tyco and Tonka (my younger Aussie) get along well, then I will let them play. I will keep you posted. This morning was the first time he has had a solid poop! Yay! His incision is doing fantastic and his dew claw issue is healing nicely, as well. He is a sweet dog, it seems, but he is intact and is trying to boss around my old Aussie. He has a huge appetite now and is off the pain meds.
