Howllo Fellow Hound and April Lovers: April is a new arrival to the HOP. She was taken in by Marilyn from Susan of Bluegrass Basset Rescue. April is, “older than dirt” according to the vet who examined her after she was rescued from an animal hoarder in KY. Look how skinny she was upon arrival at the HOP!


Well, turns out, April was very pregnant. Marilyn thought is was odd how fast she began gaining weight! It looks like there are two pups and one was born this morning at about 9:00am.


Here is the picture of the puppy right after she cleaned it up. Poor girl, approximately 11 years old and still having puppies. Well, dear April these will be the last and Marilyn will make sure of it. I am going to give every one 2 links. This first one is the Webcam that Marilyn has set up, but it is down more than it is up. However, there is a streaming live chat that keeps us up to date.


Click here to help with the cost of this unusual situation:

Can you believe this? Puppies at a retirement home! Marilyn, you deserve a metal. To make matters even more difficult, Marilyn is sick with a bad, bad cold.

More puppy news later, but for now, get on the CAM! Slurp! Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Despite her age, I always had the strong urge to call her “April Baby” when she was here–and now I know why!!!

    Susan, you are the real hero! You are so tireless. I am in awe of you and the work you do for Bluegrass. I promise, I am heading towards some cool fund raising for you! Love, Cat, Chaps and Emma
