Omar Blue's Ode to the Mustians
Bringing attention to people who make a difference in this
canine world arena that some of us live in, is something I like to do.
Awhile ago, I featured a family who had found love at
first sight in a little stray beagle living dangerously on the side of a
not-so-rural road. Her name was Holly and the family I’m referring to is the
Their beloved Holly passed away in early February, at 14
years old. She was on her way to Rainbow Bridge but was intercepted. Instead, she
was taken to her last forever home, K-9 Town, to be with Omar Blue’s pack and
some of the others that had arrived the same way.
Omar and I have a “don’t ask, don’t tell” thing about how
this happens. But the important thing is Holly, now running with other beagles
and almost any other breed you can think of, like in her dreams, and she’ll
never know another day of sickness.
The Mustians (Katy, Tom, and their two sons Carter and Spencer) were devastated at their
loss. They were thinking (but I knew better) that it would be some time before
they would be ready to adopt another dog.
Then mom, Katy, heard about “Beaglemania” at Richmond Animal
There were nine beagles available for adoption that formerly
lived in a facility where they were “purpose bred.” Their puppies were sold to
In eight years these girls each had 16 litters.
They had been rescued by the Virginia Tech Veterinary
School, thoroughly examined, spayed, chipped and sent to RAL for adoption.
(Kudos to Virginia Tech)
First to the RAL
website, where Katy fell for a little cutie who had the same name as her deceased
mom. It’s obviously meant to be, she decided right then.
Then Katy and her family of dog lovers visited RAL. The rest
Meet Cher and Greta, and their wonderful new family. (Cher
Yes, not one but two lucky pooches who will live happily
When my Omar Blue heard about the treatment they had received from
that “bad place,” he was heading for K-9 Town to round up his pack to pay it a
visit. It took me awhile to convince him that the place had been shut down.He ranted for quite some time.
After he quieted down, we were able to focus on what was
most important. After a life of abuse and mistreatment, Greta and Cher had
found the Mustians and their lives had changed forever.
We'll be checking. Hopefully, the others that arrived for “Beaglemania”
have had the same good fortune, but if you have a place in your heart and your
home, the Richmond Animal League is always available to accommodate you.
Under the watchful eyes of their new family, these two are sunning, chasing squirrels and listening to the sweet sounds of nature for what might be the first time.
