What a difference a week can make!
I talked to Lynn this morning and Sweetheart had just gotten through, in Lynn's words, 'inhaling a can of puppy food'. Sweetheart is moving around well this morning, is in good spirits as always and is steadily improving in overall health and appearance.
I did an over the phone radio interview with KOOL 105.5 out of Chickasha Oklahoma (yes, the same town she was rescued from). The interview aired sometime yesterday afternoon. A big thank you to KOOL 105.5 for taking the time to allow me to tell her story.
I got an email from Channel 5 (local tv news station in Oklahoma City OK) this morning. They are interested in doing an interview with me and Sweetheart this afternoon at Dr. Kolar's clinic. This hasn't been officially set up yet, I am waiting for them to get back to me. I should know more this morning or early in the afternoon if and when this interview is going to happen. Getting her story out in the media is a big deal for Sweetheart. The more people that know about her the better. I will let everyone know when the interview takes place and when it will air on TV. Their website is: http://www.koco.com/ and I would imagine it would be on there as well so if you Sweetheart fans outside of Oklahoma and the US want to see it, you should be able to at least read the article and maybe view a video of the interview (if they decide to put a video of it on the website).
Some wonderful volunteers are distributing donation buckets around the Oklahoma City Metro area. The buckets have Sweetheart's shelter picture on them and a brief description of her story. The following businesses are participating in the donation bucket drive and I want to thank them and recognize their generosity for allowing those buckets to be placed in their businesses:
Central Park Doggie Daycare - OKC
House of Design Gallery and Salon - OKC
Barking Dog Bakery - OKC
A-1 Pet Emporium - OKC
Gentle Care Animal Hospital - Edmond OK
Paws Around Town located in Northpark Mall - OKC
Here is a picture of what the donation buckets look like:
I can't stop thanking everyone, absolutely everyone, for following her blog, donating, commenting and keeping her and our volunteers in your thoughts! People from all over the states and all over the world have been following her story. It is amazing how one little greyhound has touched so many people.
Have a good day, I will post again when I find out if the interview with the news station is going to take place. I hope so.
