Numbers 29, 30 and 31



We got word of a litter of four, (there were five, one already died) who had heart murmurs, in a commercial kennel in Mo.

We have named the quads! We have named them after...the doctors who will save their lives.

Texas A&M has three cardiologist now. They are....
Dr. Sonya G. Gordon, Dr. Matt W. Miller, and Dr. Ashley B. Saunders.

The female puppy is named "Ashley"...the males are named..."Matt", "Gordon", and "Miller". We hope the doctors will be honored with our choice of names for the quads!

Here are the first pics from yesterday. We brought them all back to Tulsa, strapped little harnesses on them, along with little ID tags with their names and phone numbers on them. We made these ID tags at Petsmart, yesterday.

These babies all look sick. They look sick in their eyes. They are lethargic and just don't feel one bit good.


The quads and their Mom and Dad, (yes, you have to know we went after getting those parents with all we had! We had to purchase them...but we "gots em now" and there will be no more babies for them!) arrive in Tulsa, from Mo.

OKC Volunteers, Lindsay Sharp, and Perry Gilfillan, help us to get the babies ready to drive to Dallas.


At our Tulsa vet's office, this is our little swimmer guy, Matt. See how he can't put his back legs up behind him? Lindsey says he walks like a baby seal...



Lindsey holds the quad's Daddy. We named him "Saunders"...


Lindsey hold the quad's Moma. We named her "Sonya."


The Quads are all packed up and ready to roll to their first hand off point, Dallas, Texas.

We have done this life saving surgery 28 times before at Texas A&M University. It costs us roughly $2000.00 each time.

Now we have looked into their eyes. I know this is a lot to ask...for funds to save of all four of them. I figure they must have been meant to come to Small Paws...or as Shirley Lyall says, they would've been born as Beagles.

They are depending on us now. I don't know what else to do but to come to you and tell you how it is going with their fund raising. We have raised about $3800.00 so far for the heart murmur babies.

MOST of that has been raised in $25.00 and $10.00 donations. That's just to tell you how many Small Pawsers have been participating, and we love you each one!

Time is running out. We have less than 48 hours to go. If you can help them, now is the time. Their time is running out, judging by the way they acted yesterday. They are sick and lethargic. This can't wait until we have time to raise more funds. One of the original five in this litter has already died from this. We just can't wait.

Update! November 13, 2005
One of the babies died on the way to Texas A&M. We lost little GORDON.
These are pics of the remaining trio...little Matt, Miller and baby Ashley. Their surgeries were 100% successful!

Turn on Your Heartlight
By Neil Diamond

Come back again
I want you to stay next time
Cause sometimes the world ain't kind
When people get lost like you and me

I just made a friend
A friend is someone you need
But now that he has to go away
I still feel the words that he might say

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

He's lookin' for a home
Cause everyone needs a place
A home's the most excellent place of all
And I'll be right here if you should call me

Turn on your heartlight
Let it shine wherever you go
Let it make a happy glow
For all the world to see

Turn on your heartlight
In the middle of a young boy's dream
Don't wake up too soon
Gonna take a ride across the moon
You and me

Turn on your heartlight now
Turn on your heartlight now
