May all beings be warm and safe tonight


Our water froze again last night. My sister’s ears now have frostbite. We huddled up to Momma to try to stay warm As she shivered beside us in the cold winter storm. She cried and cried to tell of our pain. But all of her cries went unanswered in vain. It’s morning now – will there be any food? We’ll pick through the spoiled and look for some good. We heard them say the truck is coming today. Momma’s so sad ‘cause they’ll take us away. Don’t they understand we’re too young to go? Little pups like us still need Momma so. Here they come. Off we go – no time for goodbye. How many will make it? How many will die? The cage is now empty. Momma’s all alone In the tiny wire prison that is her home. She cries and wonders is it God’s will To spend her whole life in a puppy mill? She prays for someone to take her away To a home with a yard and children to play. And …

Buster update


Baby Buster is having some sort of twitching problems.  I think it is petit mal seizures but the vet thinks it is a pulled muscle or even a slipped disc.  He’s been on bedrest for a few days and isn’t getting any better.  He had 6 episodes today.  Tim was able to get it on video today so tomorrow we are going to take the video in to the vet.  Poor little guy.  We are very concerned.  He’s been by our side 24-7 since this twitching started.  He’s already on antiseizure medication due to a couple of life-threatening seizures he had.  (During one his temperature got up to 108 degrees).  He has Valley Fever which is a fungal infection in his brain so is also on antifungal medication.  The vet said most dogs recover 100% but there are a few who don’t make it through the treatment.  He has the best personality and has been with us for 8 years so far.  We are hoping for many more to come.  The pics of me and Buster were …

Mail! Mail!


I got my book from Eldad today!  It is wonderful!  I wanted to give a huge thank you to Eldad for the book and for everything he and his beautiful wife, Audrey are doing to help save stray, shelter and injured dogs.  It is such a joy to know there are people like them in the world.  I found this poem online.  The Prayer of a Stray.  I would like to dedicate it to Audrey and Eldad and say that you two angels have answered some of these dogs prayers!  Sincerely, Chris   The Prayer Of A Stray Dear God, please send me somebody who’ll care! I’m tired of running, I’m sick with despair. My body is aching, it’s so racked with pain. And dear God I pray as I run in the rain, that someone will love me and give me a home. A warm cozy bed I can call my own. My last owner neglected me and chased me away to rummage in garbage and live as a stray. But now, God, I’m …

Eldad Hagar- someone you should know!


If you have $10 to spare and love dogs, you might want to buy this book by Eldad Hagar.  http://www.hopeforpaws.org/  Go here http://www.flickr.com/photos/eldad75/sets/72157603933491130/ to view some of the many dogs this wonderful person (and his wonderful wife!) have rescued.  This ones name is Fifi!  :) This is one minute after this dog was scheduled to be put to sleep.  Elphy found a home! Eldad kissing one of his foster dogs, Rosie. This is Bradley and here is his story: “We rescued Bradley from the shelter last night, and today I took him to a neurologist. The doctor had only sad news for Bradley… We agreed he should go to sleep and not suffer this severe hydrocephalus. (as you can see, his head is weirdly shaped due to a lot of fluids in his head / brain). I didn’t want to let him go yet, so from the vet I took Bradley to the beach, I sat with him, played with him, and I fed him many cheeseburgers and fried chicken. We sat there for two hours, and after …

Something’s Happening….


My hits went from 60 to 260 in less than 24 hours.  I do have followers but they are just invisible!  They are coming by the hundreds now…soon it will be thousands!  I am on FIRE!  :)  Happy Friday to you!  Do you have any weekend plans?  T is off today so we will be hanging out together.  He took the dogs for a run early this morning.  This is how they look after a run:  I think his tongue is too big for his mouth.  What do you think?  One more of the tongue- just because…   And this is how they look the rest of the morning:  I’m having a headache and sore jaw and teeth this morning.  My teeth were bothering me after the dentist yesterday and I was grinding last night.  I sometimes where a mouth guard for the grinding but they still hurt even with the guard.  Anyone else a grinder?  What do you do to prevent it, if anything?  My DH, T, said I was grinding loudly and with a …
