Cats Steal the Show at All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration!

Last night I watched the All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration . May I just say that the people that put this show together are genius? In addition to showcasing dogs in rescue that are in need of homes, they hit on every rescue-related topic- from the importance of spay/neuter to the cost of rescuing to the need … Continue reading

I Am Fucking Amazing!

. . .

My Dog

The Rumpster is such a wonderful dog. He is always available as a dinner companion. And he’s so polite. He rarely whines for me to get up in the morning, though I may get a soulful, begging face like this one. Rumpy loves everyone, even the evil June Buggie. But I know who he loves … Continue reading

Yet Another ASPCA Animal Rescue Effort Underway in FL

It’s happened again.  This time the ASPCA and Texas Humane Heroes worked with Hendry County, Florida, Sheriff’s Office, Clewiston Animal Control and the Humane Society of Broward County to rescue over 100 dogs from an unlicensed puppy mill in central Florida. Here’s a local media story about the rescue effort.   Beatriz Perez and Alexei Fernandez … Continue reading

I Said I’d Post Every Day and……

It took me awhile, but I am posting today! You see, I had to take my car in to be serviced this morning. I’d planned to write a blog post while I waited, but I met Mrs. Clause in the lobby and ended up talking with her instead of writing a blog post. No, I … Continue reading

NaNoWriMo With a Twist of Lemon

Have you noticed anything different about me? Uh, no, I did NOT change my hairstyle. I’ve been writing every day! YAY! In honor of National Novel Writing Month, I decided I would, in true American style, steal the event and reshape it to meet my deepest desires. And that desire is to get my blog back … Continue reading

It’s All About the Marketing

Yesterday I read a story in the Daily Mail UK about a dog named Lana that was so depressed over being returned to Mighty Mutts, a Toronto animal shelter, that she refused to go on walks. Of course, after you read the actual article, you see that behavior lasted for all of one day. Compare that to … Continue reading

Bacon Linked to Cancer….. in Dogs?

In the US, there is nothing more revered than the breakfast meat known as bacon. Clever marketing has unleashed in us a love for bacon rivaled only by chocolate. There are bacon cocktails and even a bacon-infused vodka. There are bacon ice creams, and at one time Burger King offered a bacon sundae. Oh, and don’t forget … Continue reading

Happy Gotcha Day Rumpy!

Nine years ago today I stopped to keep a furry dog from darting into the road and to help him find his way home. Little did I know his home was with me. Unlike with DeDe, ours has not been an easy relationship. His size, his high activity level, and his breed have forced me to be … Continue reading

Death for Barking Dogs? A Social Media Dilemma!

Social media is all up-at-arms over the possible forced euthanization of two Port St Lucie, Florida, dogs that were taken into custody for barking. I first became aware of the plight of Princess and Duke when PR Manager Allison Gower  emailed me a link to a petition to save the dogs. Immediately I was raging … Continue reading
