I just realized that I haven’t posted my sweet Priscilla in MONTHS! She and her sister Marie, who I’ll post in a few days, were the two piggies that I adopted as companions for Cuddles after my little Honey died. I’ve had them since last March! They came in a horribly small cage, with bumble-foot and nails that curled back into their foot pads. They were extremely skittish and afraid of people. The vet says that they’re part Cuy guinea pig, which due to their size and demeanor I think is accurate, but are total sweethearts now. I love them more than I can express! Miss Prissy here looks a bit angry, but I had just been kissing her little rosette and pushed it down🙈 She’s a baddie for pictures, that’s mostly why she isn’t posted more! I’m going to make a story highlight of her so you guys can see what she looks like. She has agouti patches, mostly on her bum, and Heterochromia Iridium eyes. She’s definitely my most vocal peeg, leading in song over every single noise she hears. I’m very blessed to be her mummy, and to be a part of her healing process.

There’s no need to fall out of love with something that is old. We don’t want ignore it, forget about it or leave it in a dusty old corner to rot. There’s nothing more rewarding than showing it some love, teaching it to shine & giving it some quirky personality.
🎊Today is Chewie’s Gotcha Day 🎊 In the past year he’s come so far physically, but he’s also learned to play with toys, to sit AND roll over🕺🏻, and to (occasionally) listen to us (when we have food). He’s the absolute weirdest dog I’ve ever met and I can’t image our lives without him and his quirks😅

Our big 7mo 23lb Polly girl was not her crazy self Wednesday after spay but vet was amazed at her growth from 2 1/4lb first visit #neglectednomore #vegandog
Ramsey has been sadly neglected in his previous life. He has sever eye and ear infections which we are working diligently to clear up. The Vet says Ramsey has scarring in his eyes meaning he’s had these infections before. Foster mom says when you look into his eyes all you see is love and gentleness. Ramsey never wants to be alone and yearns for affection. Ramsey will make for a great companion and we’re looking forward to seeing who he chooses. #adoptable #ramsey #kindeyes
How's this for Friday night excitement? The only plant I've ever successfully resurrected from death. It was dry and dead, more or less, neglected in a pot outside. Brought it in, placed in new pot, actually remembered to water it occasionally and viola! A couple years later it's eight inches long and growing every which way. Go me! #resurrection #plantlife #withatwist #planted #alivedespitemybestefforts #neglectednomore
The beginnings of trust and a new friendship. This poor girl was severely neglected and most likely abused. Used to pop out kids and milk until she was all used up. We got her just in time. She is easily my most worse-off animal rescued. But lots of love and TLC (and medicine from the vet!) will one day bring the light & life back to her eyes. I am grateful to have a life that provides for me to provide for her. Here's to health and healing, my darling Leela girl ❤️
Working on fixing the sprinklers so this lawn comes back to life, fresh coat of paint coming next week. Loving every minute making this our home #wegotthis #hugeyard #neglectednomore
Sweet Lucy Lulu (left) is still enjoying the bliss of her adopted life! 💖 And having a fur-bro makes everyday grrrreat!!! Mahalo to everyone that has helped to make her smiles possible! You guys so ROCK! 💜
www.k9kokua.org *For our new pals--Lu's backstory...years ago, she was a puppy at the humane society when a young couple saw her and 'adopted' her from there. This couple had recently arrived to our island and they were camping out on a beach and panhandling their way through Waikiki. With Lucy. 😡 A kind person reached out for help when they noticed this couple (and their eratic behavior). A prev. K9 Kokua volunteer drove down there and the couple stated that they had "made enough money to fly to Maui" so they happily gave their 'adopted' puppy away. INFURIATING ISN'T IT?! She was used as a tool, a temporary play thing for these inconsiderate and selfish people! Lu was thin and had not been to the vet for her follow up shots.
Yet, the couple (barely here for 3 months) had raked in enough cash to live a carefree life sleeping on the beach in Waikiki like it was some kind of vacation. It is an insult to those who are truly houseless with their dogs and struggling to remain safe while also keeping their heads up!
To think that some people are doing this purposely is maddening. Their behavior sheds a bad light on houseless that need and WANT help.
When Lu was picked up, the couple was heavily under the influence of altering substances.
And let's not forget..they had panhandled enough in Waikiki to fly to another island.
All because they had a cute, little puppy with them and people felt bad so they gave them a few dollars here and there. 😔
All of that is behind Lucy now and this innocent gal will never be in bad hands again!!
She has been in permanent love and safety with her real adoptive ohana and now enjoys her life! 💜
Comment below to send smiles to them. 🐶

Just a reminder that results come from allocating your time and effort. I've been seeing some fantastic growth on this platform early on because I was putting in the right effort. This week I've been so busy at @designcuts
that I've worked every waking hour on that biz, stopping only to eat. I'm talking sending the final email 2 seconds before my head hits the pillow. As much as I'm going to put into this page, I had to neglect it this week, as such big things are brewing at Design Cuts. And guess what? My Instagram progress slowed to a crawl, the second I stopped putting out daily content, devoting as much time to creating better content, and connecting with others. Half the battle is knowing the right work to put it, the other half is finding the time and energy reserves to do it! #neglectednomore #entrepreneur #entrepreneurlifestyle #ceolife #startup #startuplife #ceo #companyculture #onlinebusiness #socialmedia #bizowner #smallbiz
Marley had his follow-up vet appointment and unfortunately, his mouth is still inflamed so he has to have another round of medication. He has gained some weight, which is fantastic, and we hope at his next follow-up appointment, he’ll have gained some more! Fingers crossed that this round of medication will be his last and he can finally be available to find his forever home!
