MOLLY needs a sponsor


What a shame

It is a shame that hateful people have nothing better to do than lie and cause trouble for good people. We had adult protective services out here on fri and animal control yesterday. What a shame they didn't find a damn thing wrong with our place. Now you scum can crawl back under the rock you came out of.

Sudden Storm

Well we definitely needed the rain, but I wasn't prepared for it and had a bunch of yardsale stuff, going thru it yesterday and we were gonna work on it again tomorrow. GRRRR Samantha, Johnny and I were out rushing to get it into the trailer before the storm hit. Sure hope I didn't rip out my stitches cause Drew wasn't home to help. The only thing we couldn't get was the tables and plywood. GRRRR And we all know partical board tables fall apart real easy.

My elbow

Today Dr Horn, my new reg dr , removed the growth off my elbow. I had him spray the elbow with numbing spray BEFORE he went in with the numbing needles. Boy did that help! He is sending the growth away for a bio, but I am sure it is nothing.

Buddy needs a home

Buddy is a young wonderful and sweet catahoula mix orange and white male, he has one blue and one brown eye. He is shown in this pic with my pit Bunny. He is a real lover. He will need normal vetting so No adoption fee but we do ask a donation of a 50 lb bag of dog food to help the other dogs in our care. For more info call MsDawn 903 764 0097

Bacon healing.

Bacon loves his daddy!

Drew holding bacon

He loves to tear up his newspaper pads and snuggle into his blanket.

Bacon is one spoiled piggy.
Poor Bacon's damaged ear fell off today and his damaged skin is peeling as well. But he is in good health otherwise and running all over our cabin.

Shelly's visit

Shelly came to spend the night yesterday. Here is a couple pics of her visit. We took a break from demo work since she was here and today...Drew is getting some sleep. Tomorrow is another day!

CANINE 9-11 rescuers

These are the dogs that worked the Trade Center that are still alive but retired; they are heroes too!!! Their eyes say everything you need to know about them. Just amazing creatures! True heroes of 9/11 still with us today...
Scout and another unknown dog lie among the rubble at Ground Zero, just two of nearly 100 search and rescue animals who helped to search for survivors. During the chaos of the 9/11 attacks, where almost 3,000 people died, nearly 100 loyal search and rescue dogs and their brave owners scoured Ground Zero for survivors. Now, ten years on, just 12 of these heroic canines survive, and they have been commemorated in a touching series of portraits entitled 'Retrieved'. The dogs worked tirelessly to search for anyone trapped alive in the rubble, along with countless emergency service workers and members of the public.
Handler Julie Noyes and Hoke were deployed to the World Trade Center from their home in Denver on September 24 and searched for five days.
Abigail, above, was deployed on the evening of September 17, searching for 10 days while Tuff arrived in New York at 11:00 pm on the day of attack to start working early the next day.
Red, 11, from Annapolis, Maryland, went with Heather Roche to the Pentagon from September 16 until the 27 as part of the Bay Area Recovery Canines.
Merlyn and his handler Matt Claussen were deployed to Ground Zero on September 24, working the night shift for five days.
Guinness, 15, from Highland, California, started work at the site with Sheila McKee on the morning of September 13 and was deployed at the site for 11 days.

Moxie, 13, from Winthrop, Massachusetts, arrived with her handler, Mark Aliberti, at the World Trade Center on the evening of September 11 and searched the site for eight days.
 Tara, 16, from Ipswich, Massachusetts, arrived at the World Trade Center on the night of the 11th. The dog and her handler Lee Prentiss were there for eight days.

Bretagne and his owner Denise Corliss from Cypress, Texas, arrived at the site in New York on September 17, remaining there for ten days!

Traveling across nine states in the U.S. from Texas to Maryland, Dutch photographer Charlotte Dumas, 34, captured the remaining dogs in their twilight years in their homes where they still live with their handlers, a full decade on from 9/11. Their stories have now been compiled in a book, called Retrieved, which is published on Friday, the tenth anniversary of the attacks.
Noted for her touching portraits of animals, especially dogs, Charlotte wanted 'Retrieved' to mark not only the anniversary of the September 2001 attacks, but also as recognition for some of the first responders and their dogs.
'I felt this was a turning point, especially for the dogs, who although are not forgotten, are not as prominent as the human stories involved,' explained Charlotte, who splits her time between New York and Amsterdam. 'They speak to us as a different species and animals are greatly important for our sense of empathy and to put things into perspective.'

Shelly arrived
