Remember Kaiser?

You all remember Kaiser, right? He is the little puppy who was stolen from his house during a robbery, and we posted his story for our friends. Many of you who live in his area told us that you were keeping a hopeful watch for him, and others wrote from way far away to share your hopes and good thoughts for his recovery.

Then a bit later, when most of us had given up hope, Kaiser was found and re-united with his family. He was in rough shape, so the celebration in his honor was postponed for a while. Now he is obviously doing better, and we are all invited to a celebration in his honor this coming Sunday. Here is the note from his friend Jacque, with all the details:

"It took us a little longer than expected, but Kaiser is now healthy and ready to meet all the people who helped in his return. We are meeting at 9 a.m. - Noon, on Sunday, September 9th. (That’s 9/9 at 9!) We are going to meet at Eldorado Park in Scottsdale, at the East Ramada. The East Ramada is North of McDowell/South of Oak and on 77th Street. 77th Street is East of Miller.

Please bring your dog. This is not an off-leash area so bring your leash. (That’s another story all together.) We want you to come even if you don’t have a dog! We are asking that everyone who helped, no matter if you just called to say you were thinking and praying for Kaiser, forwarded the email or whatever---attend. We can’t wait to meet all the amazing people who knew us or didn’t that came to our rescue and were our heroes. And please forward this to all those you sent the other Kaiser emails to.

Don’t forget we will have a truck there to collect donations of unopened bags of dog food (or any pet food), new dog toys, collars and leashes or a cash donation; all will be donated to the local shelters and some of the rescue groups in Kaiser’s name. (Sometimes the dollar stores have a good variety of collars, toys, etc., and Ryan’s Pets has cheap toys.)

We are going to have a couple special guests in attendance; Mary Hosman who is the owner of A Pawsitive Experience Too, LLC, Professional Pet Sitting. Mary has been providing loving pet care in Gilbert and Chandler since 2002. For additional information, please visit
http://www.pawsitiveaz.com/ , http://us.f538.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?To=Mary@PawsitiveAZ.com 480-720-7600. And Donna Yuritic, who is announcing a new book just released. Donna is a certified Animal Chaplain. ANIMAL ANGELS: PAWS TO REMEMBER, her new book is about how to talk to your children about the loss of their animal companion. Donna will be on hand to sign books and to talk about her Ministry, Compassion For Creatures. Her website is http://www.compassionforcreatures.com/ and you can order a book by e-mailing her at http://us.f538.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?To=cyorprodonna@cox.net Books are $14.95 plus shipping. Part of the proceeds benefit Az. Humane Society and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. There might be some representatives of some of the rescue groups too.

We will have water, soda and light snacks. Be sure to bring your camera to capture all the wonderful pets and people!"
Muzzer seems to think that I should not go, because I am not well behaved around other dogs, but we will have someone there and will try to post some pictures of Kaiser and the other dogs. Thanks once again for your help and support.

We're so glad Kaiser is back home and feeling better. What an ordeal he must have gone through. Glad something good is coming of this, though, and it's helping other animals!

Hi Gus,

Just checking in with you to see how you are doing. Hope everything is going well.

Thank You for reading my blog, Gus. I'm glad you liked my video with Sadie. She is a cutie. We had a great time today, too. But my mom can't keep carrying around the video camera. SHUCKS!!

Koobus Kisses,

wally said...

Wow! That's such great news for Kaiser. I know the bad odds on getting a lost dog back so I'm so glad he found his way home and good for his peeps for wanting give a little back! My ma ape says--worst nightmare!


ps. I'm not so good with the other dogs either, Gus. Some of us are just Lone Rangers. The strong silent types (except when barking at everything that moves outside).

Frasypoo said...

Glad they found Kaiser.
mommy is a dog rescuer.Anytime she sees a lost,runaway pup...she takes a lot of time and effort to find the owner.She says that if i ever take a penchant to running away(As I have been known to do)she hopes that someone will take the effort to treat me nice
