On Saturday, Holly Crotty will drive from Decatur, Illinois to Dr. Tolliver's office in Waynesville, Missouri, arriving around noon. Holly is picking up the following dogs:
Three pups (two are Mildred's pups; they're weaned)
Late-breaking news: Truman & Thatcher, two of the three pups, have been diagnosed with parvovirus. Their survival is in question; they will, of course, be staying with Dr. Tolliver for treatment.
In addition, we'll be bringing back two or three dogs for Peke/Chin Rescue for a total of 11 crates max.
Holly & 11 crates return to Decatur in the late afternoon.
