Happy Homes Update | Lillie and Petra! <3

"We adopted Lillie on 11/17, she is an 8-year-old Shepherd mix. She's doing well, she's shy and submissive so there have been no issues with our other 2 dogs. We took her to the doctor today to get her checked out, just as a check-up to confirm she's good and see if she needs anything on top of what the SPCA of Texasโ€™ vets did for her. As I also take our other 2 dogs jogging, I wanted some x-rays taken of Lillie to see if she can come too. Her paperwork said she had arthritis. The vet took x-rays and said she has mild arthritis but should be OK to jog 3 miles once or twice a week, starting with smaller distances. She loves walking so I'm sure she'll be happy to go. We also scheduled her for a dental cleaning, as her teeth are pretty bad. She should be in great shape after that! Petra (now called Soxy) is the black dog. We adopted her from SPCA of Texasโ€™ McKinney location on 12/27/2013 and she is a great companion. She had had 2 homes before we got her, but we are never letting her go! Thanks for all the great work you do and thanks for Lillie and Petra" - Stefan & Swaathy

What kind of care is given to these babies (who are US citizens) born to teenage refugees in detention centers? What happens after birth?

Thanks, Texas Observer for honest, factual reporting. Keep on, document, document, document!

Suddenly they care, when it is a fetus.

The Handmaidโ€™s Tale is no longer fiction!!!

Trump is a liar and disgrace and working FOR Russia. VOTE out the corrupt GOP and impeach Trump

Cerece, did you see this? I feel bruised and battered and very, very tired.

Sounds good to me..

This is nonsense.

Why not ask the govenor of Texas who has control over the military unit? Surely, someone in the Texas government has to approve the financial expenditures? Is this even legal?

It doesn't compromise posse comatadis in any way shape or form. You know what did? Military troops from ft hood being used at Waco. Bill Clinton and Janet Reno..

So...the cartel member is pissed that the dea is working with the nasty girls? Probably bc they're hurting his wallet.

The Constitution forbids the military from acting as police.

I thought that was unconstitutional.

Itโ€™s practice for the republican president troops

Since the CIA controls Mexican drug cartels, obviously republicans want their cut

Me too

Did he watch Narcos?

Good question

Exactly

Thank you!

Simple solution... Pay them enough to cover the tuition and charge them for it. Seems weird to give universities a tax loophole just because education is good

Most grad student are barely scraping by and the republicans sock them with a tax. Anyone tired of winning yet?

Adjunct professorships were created for people to give back at the end of their careers or during retirement, not as full-time jobs for students that can't get real jobs. Life doesn't owe anyone for labor that isn't wanted. The low pay is a disincentive telling people to do something else. There's a labor shortage in the trades, not in the humanities.

Oh no!! Hard work!! Save the children! Lmfao. Snowflakes.
