Dog given up during Hurricane Katrina turns up in NC

This is an amazing story about a wandering poodle.
First have your dog or cat microchipped.  AND, update your information.
Second, never to give up hope that your dog will be found.

Fortunately, Lynda was not near the Towers on September 11 and did not experience the despair that many people felt.  She was feeling despair of a different kind and thought a dog would be good to have.  This is how I came to go from a cage in a shelter to a wonderful loving home and $70 wool turtlenecks.

When I was a puppy and Lynda walked past my cage in the Humane Society, I sensed that she needed a puppy and I was perfect for her.  I adopted her and after the HS checked her references, she took me home.  As we walked out, the staff person told her that I needed to gain 3 to 4 pounds immediately.  Lynda said if someone said that about her, she would make a beeline to Haagen Dazs.  (She's really thin.)  Alas, we didn't go there.  We went to a pet store for food.  I guess I couldn't get everything in one day.

I was only a puppy and yet I knew she was sad and needed comforting.  First, she couldn't stay in the house any more after work because she needed to take me out.  My terrier spirit, cute face, and pink nose had people stopping to pet me and talk.  Soon we joined the 11 PM walk with others on the block.  It was the beginning.  Then we went to Central Park and I ran around and she talked to the other dog owners, We've been doing this ever since.  What fun!

That's me looking at me on a needlepoint pillow a friend made for us.

Look for the next installment and what she had to go though to keep me.

Mudd and the Trampoline

This has got to be one of the funniest, LOL, dog videos I've seen.

Mudd is 4 years old.
It's of a English Bull dog jumping around on a large trampoline.

Your signature will make a difference.

Please sign this partition.  The picture on the sight is disturbing.

Because this is horrendous and hideous. Can you imagine the fear these animals must be in the last minutes of their lives? No living being deserves to be treated and used this way. These are private fishermen and the penalty is ONLY 2 years and a monetary fine we want the penalty to be stiffened to deter this horrific crime!

Do you remember the Traveler's Insurance commercial with the shaggy terrier burying his bone in the dirt, then dreaming about it and going back out and digging it up?  I laughed every time I saw the commercial.

Well tonight BJ did the same.  I gave him a beef bone which he gnawed at and then hid it.  Every few minutes he pulled it out and put it somewhere else.  Finally he went to one of my planters (with only dirt in it) and buried it in the dirt.  He must have thought about it, decided it wasn't safe and dug it out.  I'm not sure which was worse, the dirt on the floor or on his face.  That bone got thrown out!  A while later, I felt bad for him and defrosted another one.

Guess what he got this morning.
