Today we are going to talk about Muffin, the most sweet-faced dog I’ve seen in a long (besides my own pup of course). Muffin has been through a lot – her previous owners abused her, threw a chemical substance on her face, and starved the poor pup. Lucky for Muffin she was rescued by the fabulous organization Response-a-Bull. Muffin has a long recovery ahead of her.
It takes a very special person to bring an injured animal into their home. That special person is Kita from Pass the Sushi. She looked passed the injuries and saw the heart and beauty of Muffin, saw the sweet demeanor lurking beneath the shyness she was exhibiting at first and brought her home. Muffin will have months and months of doctors appoints, rehab and medicines to take before getting back to her former beautiful self.
That’s where we come in today. Kita reached out to the food blog community asking us to participate in a bake sale to help cover Muffin’s medical cost. I joined in without blinking. I am a dog lover, my sweet pugling in snoring next to me as I type this. I can’t look at another dog on the street without saying hello, and I get angry when I see a dog tied up outside (especially in this heat). So you can imagine how upset I was when I heard about Muffin.
