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!

All is Well

It doesn't take much to care and to apply yourself for another being. Check out this story (and watch the link to YouTube) about Cora, the very lucky dog who was rescued by a patient and extremely determined person from Hope for Paws.  I remember this group from the video shown on their home page, of the little white dog that was petrified and wouldn't let anyone near her. That dog got saved, with some patience, and it looks like the man adopted her!

All is well with Little Romeo, and the other three boys are getting over their irritation at a new little one being brought home. When a pack of dogs is used to one another, and each other's movements and mannerisms, and someone new comes in with their new movements and mannerisms, there is an adjustment period. This hasn't been bad at all. It's provided a lot of laughs. This morning I had four dogs laying on me when I woke up.

Going to see Miss Olive today and taking her to the park with her new coat from a fan. Dixie isn't quite as needy as Olive so I don't usually take her to the park, but on a long walk in the kennel neighborhood. I bring chicken and liver treats for the dogs in the puppy room there, who are normally on their way to their rescue situation and are usually pretty thin. The kennel, NYC Top Dog, has become a non-profit organization instead of a company. Pedro Rosario, who runs it and whom I cannot say enough good things about, is known far and wide as a strong advocate of the animals. His entire kennel is made up of dogs that are in between a shelter situation (or something worse) and a rescue situation.

Blogging will be light the next few days, but I do plan a post on the various organizations that are worthy of your support. There are many doing some great work, like Hope for Paws.

Thanks for your readership. I hope you all find this blog informative.
