Little Lenny and friends




Silverwalk is a small, private, licensed dog sanctuary in Cape Girardeau County, MO. It specializes in Beagles, other hounds and senior dogs. There are always dogs needing adoption and sponsorship. Please see our website for more information about Silverwalk and our dogs needing homes.

It is nice to have a working and cooperative relationship with the other rescues, shelters and sanctuaries in the Cape area and beyond. These photos are of Little Lenny, an adult Beagle who was one of too many dogs for his family. They turned him into the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri, with whom I have worked on behalf of the dogs before. R kept holding Lenny as she went about her duties at the shelter; he is so very small, about 15# and that bulging eye, now gone, was painful to look at and probably painful to live with. So, Silverwalk got an email - "just another favor, please." Well, how could I not? I didn't have the funds for his treatments (eye removal or enucleation, neuter, HW) but R and T raised funds for him. He is a doll, can be so funny, seems to be house trained and gets along with all the other dogs, big and small. Enjoy his pics, see his progress and hey, if anyone needs a little relatively quiet dog for your home, Little Lenny is looking for a home...

Chip and Monk - onward and outward, sort of

Red letter day yesterday - Chip went walking somewhat willingly w/a dog walker, Rachel, not me; Monk allowed me to stroke his tummy and hold him - he would not walk on a leash per se but let himself be stroked. Chip, Monk and Farrah are the dogs we are planning to go to Silverwalk's first foster home in June w/Courtney. They all get along very well and each needs increased socialization which a smaller dog environment will help provide.

Both Chip and Monk's photos were on the previous entry, so take a gander at them, if you will. Thanks!
