Yes, it’s a flea riding a watch part bicycle. The black part is about 3/4 of an inch square.

For those of you in the Bay Area, if you’d like to see some of my work in the flesh, I’ll be showing this and other sculptures at Pirate Cat Radio during the month of May.

And, as always, you can purchase my work at my Etsy shop.

Red Flea Beetle – possibly Tansy Ragwort Flea Beetle – Longitarsus jacobaeae or similar. Thanks, Boris, for the ID. I’m mildly disappointed it’s not my first ID attempt – Neocrepidodera ferruginea as there are plenty of other pictures of the Tansy Ragwort Flea Beetle out there.

— Press Release: Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office

“Zeke” the dog was spending this work day next to one of his favorite people in the world. Wakulla County Animal Control Officer (ACO) Bonnie Brinson nursed Zeke back to health with some help from Crawfordville veterinarians. Now he is enjoying life at home or visiting the Wakulla County Animal Shelter.

The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office investigation into locating the suspect who shot the young dog in late May has concluded and closed with all leads exhausted. But caring members of the community continue to make sure that Zeke’s life rebounds from a rough start.

On May 30, Zeke was found injured on the side of Gay’s Drive in Crawfordville. A passing motorist noticed the bloodied puppy struggling for his life on the road. Animal Control Officers responded to the call and discovered the black and tan Shepherd mix with open wounds, covered in fleas, ticks and mange, emaciated with gunshot wounds and a rear right leg compound fracture and a fractured left shaft tibia.

Approximately one month later, Zeke had reconstructive surgery at Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital in Crawfordville and more medical evaluation and physical therapy at the University of Florida Small Animal Hospital in Gainesville.

During the weeks the followed, the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office opened a case investigation to attempt to locate the person who shot Zeke and left him to die. Detective Randy Phillips conducted scores of interviews and collected a folder full of documents as the investigation progressed. But in the end Detective Phillips exhausted all his leads.

Concerned citizens viewing the media coverage of the injured animal contributed 0 toward a reward for information leading to the arrest of the shooter. With leads exhausted the donors requested that the money they donated be given to Dr. Norm Griggs and Shepherd Springs Animal Hospital for their outstanding work in helping Zeke regain his mobility.

Dr. Griggs said he will use the monetary donation to assist other injured animals that ACO Brinson brings his way in the coming months. “She is inspiring to all of us,” said Dr. Griggs as he and fellow practice Veterinarian Dr. Julia Whited accepted the check.
Zeke continues to make progress toward a “normal” dog life. He happily bounds around on his rebuilt legs. He has amazing control of the back leg that suffered the most damage. He is active, runs, plays and swims in a pool during time spent with the Brinson family at home.

“We’re still hoping to adopt him,” said Bonnie Brinson. “He’s such a good dog.” The male dog is less than one year old and shows no ill will toward humans despite the attempt to kill him.

Veterinarians will continue to monitor Zeke’s legs and if he outgrows his damaged hind leg, the leg could be amputated. However, Brinson reports that the coverage of Zeke’s health has received a great deal of media attention and a Chicago company has offered to fit Zeke with a prosthetic leg if necessary.

Handling all of the life threatening animal calls can be “aggravating and depressing,” according to Brinson. “But at the same time it can be rewarding in the long run.”

Zeke was 16 pounds when he was rescued and now weighs 40 pounds. He was without food, water and medical attention when he was discovered. But thanks to the efforts of caring individuals in Wakulla and Leon counties he will survive and prosper.

“When I saw him struggling and walking only on his two front feet I knew he had the willpower to live,” said Brinson. “He is a wonderful dog and he will make someone a fantastic companion.”

“I cannot believe that someone was cruel enough to shoot a puppy like this,” said Sheriff Charlie Creel, a dog lover with two of his own at home. “It is tragic and disgusting. Hopefully someone will have the courage and conviction to talk and we can find out who did this.”
The closed case will be reopened if additional information is obtained.

Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Spokesman, Keith Blackmar said, "Certainly like to arrest the individual who shot the animal its kind of a cruel thing to do. He was left out there, and it wasn’t just a shooting incident, he was in pretty bad shape physically as well as the wounds."

Zeke has already undergone one surgery and another is set to happen soon. Veterinarians say one of his legs is improving, but the other one may have to be amputated. please contact the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office if you have any information.

Wakulla Animal Control Officer Bonnie Brinson has been caring for the animal during his recovery period which has included emergency surgery. Since that time, Zeke has attended a Florida Cabinet meeting, met Attorney General Pam Bondi and has continued to gain weight. One of his back legs has begun to recover while the other was too damaged to repair. Amputation remains a possibility.

Zeke is an estimated six of seven months old and Wakulla Animal Control hopes to eventually adopt him out. He is scheduled for some orthopedic surgery with Dr. Norm Griggs at Shepherd Spring Animal Hospital in Crawfordville.

Anyone with information about the dog shooting is asked to contact the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office at 745-7100 and request a detective from the Criminal Investigations Division to investigate.

“He is getting better, but he was in bad shape,” said Wakulla Animal Control Director Ivanhoe Carroll. “He loves his toys.”

“I can’t believe someone would leave this animal along the side of the road to die,” said ACO Brinson. “He loves to play with the other dogs. Surely there is someone out there who has the information the sheriff’s office needs to bring justice and the compassion to know that you have brought closure to this animal cruelty case.”

Crawfordville, FL-A dog shot in his hind legs and left for dead in one Florida town is expected to make a full recovery.

Wakulla County Animal Control found the shepherd mix they’ve named Zeke on a dirt road back in May, shot in his hind legs.

Since then, Zeke has had surgery on his injured right hind leg. Pins were also added to the leg. His left hind leg will undergo a similar surgery.

Officials say he’s put on about five pounds since being at the hospital.

People from as far away as Michigan have been calling, asking to adopt Zeke.

"We get at least probably five or 10 calls a day checking on him. We get donations daily for him so it’s wonderful," said Blair Tucker who works at the Crawfordville Animal Hospital where Zeke is being cared for.
No arrests have been made in the case. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Wakulla Sheriff’s Office.

Crawfordville, FL – Someone shot a puppy and left it to die on the side of the road in Crawfordville.

Both of the puppy’s hind legs were shot. Deputies want to know who pulled the trigger.

Wakulla County Animal Control Officer Mark Carter says the puppy was trying to get away by walking away on his front legs when he found him on the side of the road last Thursday in Crawfordville.

Carter says it was obvious the four-month old shephard mix was injured. But, when he took the dog to the Crawfordville Animal Hospital, they discovered it had been shot in both of his back legs.

Carter says, "I felt, you automatically feel bad for the animal. Then it’s a little bit of anger; what caused him to get in this situation and how could somebody put him in the situation."

Folks at the hospital named the pup, "Zeke."

They say he’s come a long way over the past few days.

Blair Tucker, a veterinarian technician at the Crawfordville Animal Hospital, says, "He was covered in fleas and ticks and real emaciated. We’ve had to do a lot of wound care from the wounds from the bullet. We’ve done a lot of prevention with infection. We’ve done x-rays and blood work. One of the bones in the back left leg is completely shattered."

Animal Control officers say they believe Zeke was in his condition on the side of the road for several days because of the fact that he was already used to walking on his hind legs.

The hospital says Zeke has gained three pounds, the fleas and ticks are all gone, and his hair is growing back.

Tucker says, "That’s the best part of it. I hate to see any dog come in wounded like that. But, to see him get better and to progress is really pleasing. That’s why I love my job. He’s a sweet boy. He’s already spoiled."

Authorities are trying to find out who shot him. But, for now: "He’s in good hands now." Says, Tucker.

Authorities say they have found the owner of the dog, but, no charges have been filed against anyone at this time.

We’re told the owner says the dog’s name is originally Bruno.

Carter says it was a citizen who called animal control about the injured dog. He says he and another officer went out to check, and that’s when they found the puppy on the side of the road in the grass.

Carter says no one around claimed to know anything about what happened.

Administrators at the hospital say the pup will need surgery. They say they hope to be able to save the leg that is shattered.

If you’d like to help, call the Crawfordville Animal Hospital at 850-926-2089.

Crawfordville, FL – "Zeke", a puppy German Shepherd, was found by Wakulla County Animal Control last Thursday with gunshots in both of his hind legs.

Officers believe Zeke was shot and abandoned days before Thursday though, as he was found already used to walking on his front legs.

Since then, he has gained three pounds, and has been completely rid of fleas and ticks. He is also getting plenty of love, attention and care from the staff at the Animal Hospital

He will need surgery on his back legs where he was shot but techs at the animal hospital say his wounds have to heal a little more first, therefore, a surgery date has not been set.

Authorities say they don’t know who did this or why it happened.

As of right now, there have been no charges filed and no arrests made, but the suspect may be looking at multiple charges.

Bubble Puppy is a Texan psychedelic rock band originally active from 1966 to 1969. They are best remembered for their Top-20 hit "Hot Smoke & Sasafrass". Bubble Puppy scored a Top-20 U.S. hit in 1969 with their single, "Hot Smoke & Sasafrass". The name was a misheard line lifted from an episode of "The Beverly Hillbillies". The single peaked at number 14 on the Billboard 100 and number 15 (RPM) in Canada. In addition, the song was at the top of many radio station playlists over the summer of 1969. The song was also covered internationally, by The Mooche in the UK.

In 1969, Bubble Puppy released their first full-length album, A Gathering of Promises. However, despite Bubble Puppy’s early success with the "Hot Smoke & Sasafrass" single, they experienced numerous conflicts with International Artists, and parted ways with the label in 1970.

Smoke Alarms and Pet Sitting by Ann Wesley

Here’s a new blog article from Ann Wesley from Bloomington Pet Pals.cassie

I recently visited a dog I was pet sitting for and walked in to the house early in the morning to find she had soiled the house in multiple places. This shocked me because the dog had never eliminated in the house before and had completely relieved herself at bedtime the night before.

It only took a minute to figure out the problem. The smoke alarms were chirping. And Cassie was terrified.

Given the amount of waste in the house, I suspect the alarms had been chirping for hours. Cassie was panting and pacing and clearly traumatized. She had torn some curtains trying to get out of the house. The first thing I did was put her out in the fenced yard. But after removing the battery of the alarm I thought was chirping, the noise continued.

After a few phone calls, I learned that in order to stop the chirping, I could not just remove the batteries, but had to replace all the smoke alarm batteries in the house. I took the dog with me, went to the hardware store and was able to replace all the batteries. But Cassie was still terrified and did not want to be in the house.

I wrapped her in a Thundershirt, which is a tight wrap that helps calm dogs. With that and a few hours of extra time with her, she finally calmed down enough and went to sleep.thunder-shirt

As many as 20 percent of dogs suffer from noise phobias so severe that their people seek professional help for them, according to veterinary behaviorist Bonnie Beaver in her book Canine Behavior: A Guide for Veterinarians.

My experience with Cassie is not uncommon. Months earlier at another clients home, I entered to find the same situation – the dogs had relieved themselves in the house and were frantic. In that case, it was a beeping carbon monoxide detector that had to be replaced.

After my incident with Cassie, I posted the warning on my Facebook page. Two days later I got a message from a friend who said if she hadn’t read my post, she would have made and emergency trip to the vet. “The day I read your post about fire alarms, mine started to chirp during the night. Ellie LOST it. She was shaking so hard that I thought she was having a seizure. I held her 10 minutes before she finally calmed down.”

There are a lot of ways to treat noise phobia and desensitize dogs to noises. In this case, the best remedy is to avoid the noise by regularly changing the batteries in your alarms. The National Association of State Fire Marshals recommends changing smoke alarm batteries once a year. It might be worth asking customers if their smoke alarm batteries have been changed in the past year before they go on a trip. I now carry a supply of 9-volt batteries in my supply bag just in case.
