Expo 2014 Is History!
Expo 2014 was the best Expo ever! We came back to the same location as last year, since everyone loved it. There was lots of room to sit in the shade under the pavilion. (We actually thought we were going to need to pavilion as a rain shelter, but the rain stayed away.) People could walk around with ease. The raffle baskets and silent auction were wonderful. The food was yummy and the demos and games were loads of fun, but as usual the highlight of the day was the Parade of Rescues. The dogs in the Parade received beautiful rosettes and a goodie bag of treats. Lots of dogs walked around with their rosettes attached to their collars.
These are just a few pictures from Expo. Here is the link to the rest. EXPO PICTURES

Broward ACC called EGRR to let them know I had been picked up a stray… me and the thousands of ticks that had been feeding off me for who knows how long. I was very weak and probably not far from death. Yet, when the two EGRR volunteers came to get me, I managed to wag my tail at them. They named me Ellie, which I think is a pretty name
This was such a special day, since I had been out in the streets for so long where my poor body had been battered by ear infections, skin allergies, ticks and fleas. It was clear to everyone who looked at me that I’d had many litters of puppies in my time. The nice ladies took me to Clint Moore Animal Hospital right away, where the kind vet techs and Dr. D gently examined me. Dr. D commented I was one of the few dogs he’d ever seen in such bad shape… so you can imagine. He thinks I am between 8 and 10 years old; he did say that maybe once I am better I will look more like an 8 year old than a 10 year old.
I have had a bit of hair loss and I tested positive for heart worms, but miraculously, I am clear of tick-borne diseases! Things got better as soon as they admitted me to Clint Moore. The girls spent hours picking those horrible ticks off me, giving me medicated baths, and giving me REAL food to eat. I have been taking medications to help me with my severe ear infection, which was so advanced that it’s left me with a hearing loss. Doc said that maybe as the swelling goes down, I will be able to hear you call my name; I hope so!
It’s been about a month since I came to EGRR, and I’m already doing so much better. My hair is growing back, my skin is clearing up, and I am more and more cheerful everyday. My favorite thing is to have someone love on me and pet me. One of the volunteers who rescued me comes to visit regularly and would love to adopt me but since she already has 2 other Goldens, that just can’t happen.
EGRR wants you to know I have started my Heartworm treatment, so I need a home where I can rest and recover (probably without kids and other dogs). I just want a family of my own to love me. If you are interested in meeting me and can look beyond what I look like now (I will be pretty again soon), contact EGRR and ask about me, Ellie. I will wag my tail and make you fall in love!!!!
