When you adopt a dog, it is a FOREVER decision. Dumping a dog because you're "moving" isRead More unacceptable and wrong. I hope this beautiful boy finds the loving home he deserves...

I agree, we treat our pets like family and wouldn't dream of giving them up.

This so called "excuse" makes me ill -- steph is right -- adopting a pet is a FOREVERRead More decision and commitment. I'm thankful, though, that the dog was brought to a shelter and not dumped in a park or on the side of the road. I'm praying that this beautiful fella finds a "Forever" home real soon.

Shayna is an angel! A veterinarian once told me that a dog's behavior mirrors the owners'Read More personality. He was right!

A week ago much of the country, if not the world, was preparing to celebrate Christmas. Some ofRead More these people were celebrating for religious reasons, while others were gathering merely for the warmth and sense of camaraderie that seems so prevalent in all, at this time if the year. We join together to share meals, and laughter, and the warmth of our homes; people of even the most humble means often put together what they can so that they might share this feeling through the giving of gifts or the opening of their homes to others, and hopefully we all have the opportunity to indulge in a small amount of love of friends and family. A week ago these two dogs, Billie and Ella, were spending their days in a small, brightly-lit cage and their nights in that same cage, in the dark. Perhaps they were lucky enough to be walked a few times a day, or to have someone play with them for five minutes in a visiting room. This life, sadly, was probably an improvement over the life they had lived for the previous 7-1/2 months. Prior to this they were in a shelter, bound to be killed if nobody decided to bring them home in time; and before that, who even knows? Well, that was last week and this is not. Now, Billie and Ella go to sleep in a bed covered with soft, fleece blankets. Now, for the rest of their lives they will have to opportunity to love and be loved, and learn that they can trust without fear of being hurt. (continued in the next post)

My most heartfelt thanks go out to all of you who helped to bring Ella home to me. Pam, Cindee,Read More Nikki, Deb, Bill, Jim, Sandy, Mike and Alex, and all of those of you who I haven't mentioned. Whether you helped to carry the trap up and down the hills, or drove through the neighborhood hanging flyers or knocking on doors; whether you created webpages, networked actively or simply had us in your thoughts and prayers; to the warm-hearted soul who anonymously offered a very generous reward to aid in the recovery of little Ella; to the people walking their own dogs who continuously scanned the streets ad hillsides searching for her; I thank you. All of you. We are approaching a new year. It's a time when we all look to the future and hope to see something brighter, and thanks to all of you it is also a time when Billie and Ella can look to the brighter future and never have to look back again at their dark past.
