Now more than ever, you are needed to donate your old blankets, towels, and sheets to your local animal shelter. With financial cut-backs, repairs on shelters are often put off, so if it's drafty, the animals suffer. I know my shelter uses rags to stuff under doors. No kidding! Empty out those closets... this is your chance to get rid of stuff and do something useful!

News Round Up

The Swedes have an idea. Not sure I love it but then I feed the squirrels outside my window.  They come each morning for their peanuts, to the consternation of my super. (Warning: dead rabbits in photo but not graphic).

This lady ought to be remembered. Thank you, Bevie Wilson.

Sad news about little Teddy from Rolling Dog Ranch. I hope he's with Bevie. Leave a comment for the nice people at the ranch, for they are truly angels.

And, two notes about upcoming posts.  I will be doing a series about dogs and veterans and/or soldiers.  If you know of a good group, send them my way. I do have some lined up to discuss but I wouldn't mind listing a few (or more than a few) good organizations here.  I also will be starting a series about pitbulls who are adopted and share with you the stories their owners share with me. Maybe not every story will be about pitbulls, but they sure are a maligned breed.  I never realized.
