Rudy is happy to announce that he has been adopted by Scott and Jenn from NY. He will leave for his new home on 9/18. Christi is packing his bags….its a bittersweet goodbye, but Rudy will have a wonderful life as the only dog, plenty of exercise, and love! Thank you Scott and Jenn for giving Rudy his forever home!!!!
picking up the girls
So Alainna and Dan are heading to SC to pick up Skye and Rorye. Hope they only come home with our two girls and no extras!
So many rescues are in need of foster homes, so many dogs in need of forever homes…what’s going on?
I currently have 3 dogs in foster care from various rescues…never had as many in all the time I have been involved with rescue. People seem to be abandoning dogs for the slightest reasons. I have one little dog, April, a rat terrier x. She was abandoned because the daughter left for college and the parents didn’t want to take care of her! I can’t believe that one…my daughter would kill me!
How does that conversation go….”Alainna, Hi, it’s Mom…I just got rid of Faye, Skye and K.C. cause they are “your” dogs and I don’t feel like taking care of them any more. So how’s school going?”
Ok, so we sent Skye and Rorye off to Florida for a couple months of sheep herding. Skye really needs to get back to work and Rorye needs to learn what her real job is. No more playing with pugs, Rorye! Time to get a real job!!
found this poem about a dog’s love and needed to share:
As long as forever, I will be by your side,
I’ll be your companion, your friend, and your guide.
As long as I live, and as long as you care,
I’ll do anything for you, I’ll go anywhere.
I’ll bring you the sunshine, I’ll comfort your fears,
I’ll gather up rainbows to chase all your tears.
As long as forever, my heart will be true,
For as long as I live, I will always love you.
Down with Dog-Killer Michael Vick
The private sector must address this man’s evil.
By Deroy Murdock
Some people just cannot wait for dog killer Michael Vick to return to professional football. The only thing this inter-species sadist deserves is universal derision.
Let’s recap exactly why this former Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty to running a dog-fighting ring, earning him 18 months in federal prison and house arrest until July 20.
Vick helped kill eight dogs and injure dozens of others. According to his federal court filings, “Vick agrees and stipulates that these dogs all died as a result of the collective efforts of [co-defendants Purnell] Peace, [Quanis] Phillips and himself, Vick.”
Other legal papers detail Vick’s anti-canine savagery. In a statement of facts related to his Aug. 17, 2007, plea agreement with federal prosecutors in Richmond, Va., Vick’s co-defendant Quanis L. Phillips (a.k.a. “Q”) admitted that “in or about April 2007 . . . [Purnell A.] PEACE [a..k.a “P. Funk”], PHILLIPS and VICK executed approximately 8 dogs that did not perform well in ‘testing’ sessions at 1915 Moonlight Road by various methods, including hanging and drowning. All three participated in executing the dogs. PHILLIPS agrees and stipulates that these dogs all died as a result of the collective efforts of PEACE, PHILLIPS and VICK.”
The July 17, 2007, federal indictment against these three degenerates states that their dog-killing methods also included electrocution and “slamming at least one dog’s body to the ground.” The indictment added that on Apr. 25, 2007, the following items were discovered at Michael Vick’s Bad Newz Kennel: “approximately 54 Pit Bull Terriers, some of which had scars and injuries, appearing to be related to dog fighting [and] a ‘rape stand,’ a device in which a female dog who is too aggressive to submit to males for breeding is strapped down with her head held in place by a restraint.”
Dog fights, dog rapes, and dog executions — all in a day’s work for Michael Vick.
It might be one thing if Vick were out carousing with friends on a Saturday night, drunkenly stumbled into a dog fight, and foolishly threw down a $20 bet on one dog or another. That might qualify as “a mistake,” as Vick breezily described his role in this carnage.
It is quite another thing to organize these things on one’s own property, and for profit.
Nonetheless, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally reinstated Vick last Monday. Vick may practice immediately and could play by October 18.
While the souls of these dead pups look down in disgust from Doggie Heaven, Vick’s apologists sing his undeserved praises.
Responding to reports that Vick faces a four-game suspension before resuming play, Buffalo Bills receiver Terrell Owens said: “The guy’s already suffered so much. And to add a four-game suspension on a two-year prison sentence, that’s ridiculous.” He later told ESPN: “The commissioner needs to go sit in jail for 23 months.”
As USA Today reported, Owens recruited other footballers to support Vick via Twitter. Their rampant errors of grammar, spelling, and syntax are preserved here for posterity:
“im in support of mike vick too man,” wrote Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald. “I wanna c him back in action being the human highlight file he is.Im with ya bro.”
“Never heard him complain or wine,” remarked Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe. “Let the man play.”
“He did time and lost his shoe deal,” pleaded Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett. “Dear Commissioner please reinstate mike vick.”
Having completed his prison sentence, Vick is even-steven with Uncle Sam. Now the private sector must address this man’s evil.
Vick does not deserve any prestigious position of visibility, glory, or adulation. Any team that hires this dog killer should be boycotted by dog lovers and decent people everywhere, as should that team’s sponsors. If he ever enters an athletic venue, he should be booed off the field, out of the stadium, and beyond the parking lot.
Rather than letting him resume his multi-million-dollar sports career, someone somewhere should hand Michael Vick a mop.

Henry is the most handsome Maine Coon cat you’ll ever see, but he has developed an odd hobby. He has started fishing in the pond out back and brings his catch of horn pout back home for me. Henry has become a “fishing cat”.
I have found horn pout scattered about the back yard. The Pugs usually find the poor things first and roll around all over them, getting all smelly smell…if that is not bad enough, he is now bringing the little critters into the house…making steady progress from the yard to the mud room to the stairs to the kitchen.
Apparently the fishing is not so good lately. Henry is now catching and hauling frogs home. I found a frog hoping around my office last week. Somehow he escaped and survived Henry’s little game. The rest have not been so lucky…same steady progress from the yard to the mud room to the stairs to the kitchen.
What if he runs out of frogs…what’s next?
Henry is kind of scarey
