Remy “Rhett” Butler Boyd, aka “Boo Boo” is a 2 1/2 year old American Pit Bull Terrier that we rescued from the East County Animal Shelter in Dublin, CA where my husband and I volunteer with Tri Valley Animal Rescue walking shelter dogs every Sunday (have done so for over 18 months).
Remy is a ‘breed ambassador’ – TVAR wanted to put him in foster care for a week (before he got neutered) and then would have gone off to a more permanent foster home while waiting for find his Forever Home. We’ve never fostered before but love pit bulls. TVAR asked if we’d take him for a week, we said yes and then couldn’t give him up! He lives with our three cats and they’re ‘getting used’ to each other. Two of the three cats are gray, like him. He’s a very handsome boy, weighs 65 pounds and is up for anything – he even lets Jeff brush his teeth every day!
Favorite Toy: Kong with peanut butter, any bone he can (and does) bury
Favorite Activity: Playing frisbee, riding in the car, sitting on laps, cuddling in the bed

Vanessa 14-year-old cat made a recent veterinary visit because she ate some gravel and was vomiting. The poor kitty was hospitalized for a whole week receiving care. Her veterinary care included fluids, diagnostic tests, radiology, and medication.
When a pet ingests non-food items, they must come out one way or another, or they may cause internal complications. In certain cases, surgery may be required if the item is too large to pass.
We hope that Vanessa makes a full recovery and is feeling well again!
