“Hi. I’m Mookie the Morkie (Maltese/Yorkie). I was paralyzed for awhile earlier this summer, but it’s okay. Turns out, I’m pretty mighty!”
Mookie’s Mom, Laurie A., tells us, “One night, four year old Mookster was walking a little funny, and by 4am it was clear something was wrong, so we took him to the emergency vet. They told us a degenerated disc had ruptured (a genetic condition), and was pressing into his spinal cord. By midday, his back legs and tail were paralyzed. They rushed him to surgery, but he was still paralyzed when we took him home a few long days later. They assured us that his chances of recovery were good. I did physical therapy every day for a month, moving his legs in little circles, and later, having him walk laps in the bathtub. The day he first wagged his tail (a few days after we brought him home) was such a happy day! Since then he has steadily gained his strength back. We are so happy for our little guy to be running around again!!”
From California to Thailand and Kentucky to Kuwait, there are 25 states and 18 countries around the world holding events today for International Homeless Pets Day. Since 1992 International Society for Animal Rights has promoted this day to educate people about homeless animals and pet overpopulation. Check out the Event Schedule posted on ISAR’s website. This is big, really big. It’s been said on CO before and it is worth repeating, Shelter Puppies are the Best Puppies! (Kitties TOO! All the pets!)
Here are a few more examples of shelters holding special events in honor of the day:

Well folks, it looks like Riley’s been caught. He would have got away with smuggling those diamonds too, except for one thing. Stuffies. No dog can resist ripping the stuffing out of stuffies.
Bring forth the
glass 3D-model slipper! This is Buttercup, who lives at the Feathered Angels Waterfowl Sanctuary. Buttercup was born with only one proper foot. But the fairy godpeeps at NovaCopy came to the rescue with la très nouveau slippere’ made just for Buttercup! And the rest, they say, will be fairy tale prosthetic prosh-thetic history.
I thought I could fly – but I just forgot how to land.
She won’t play anymore. Is she tired? Can’t you make her play with me?
Sender-inner Aimee B. tells us that the young Wheaten is Ella and the worn out Wheaten is Lady.
but if you try and try and try and try and try and try and try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.
