CULLEN IN TRAINING FOR ADOPTIVE HOME
Remember Cullen? He's the one-year-old Greyhound pup who experienced a severe shoulder fracture while playing with his litter mates. Five hours of orthopedic surgery (which required a plate, screws, and a pin, at a cost of over $5,000) was 'all' it took for Make Peace With Animals to set him straight.
But it turned out that wasn't all. Cullen needed extensive post-surgical physical therapy. Even though he has a home waiting for him, it is essential that we give him the training he needs now so that his extensive and expensive surgery will not have been in vain.
In addition to administering daily range-of-motion exercises, Cullen's spectacular foster mom Carol Rowehl, along with husband John Kahler, also takes him twice a week for physical therapy at Rau Animal Hospital in Glenside, PA. There, he hits the underwater treadmill, which is followed by laser therapy on his affected limb.
Cullen will be going to his adoptive home, which includes three other Make Peace Greyhounds, in late December. Although Cullen never set one paw on a race track, we think this young dog has the spirit of a true champion.

ROGER MEETS HIS MATCH
Roger Penske (left), son of the late, great, Lassinagh Silky and prolific sire Flying Penske, goes nose to toes with his Mini Me. This paper mache statue, made by Vermont artist Terri Malloy, is the spittin' image of Roger. And why not? He was the model! The piece was created and donated to commemorate Make Peace With Animals' 25th Annual Homecoming. Luckily for Roger, his adopter had the winning bid at the silent auction.
