Ü My Other Passion Ü

Sorry for not posting in a week.  I have been needed elsewhere.  

I have always been an animal/dog person/lover.  When I was born, my parents had a dog and I grew up with her (Mandy).  She was always basically the same age as I.  I can't remember a time I was ever without a pet, usually a dog (or several!).  

Below are the faces of dogs I have helped save from euthanasia this week, through sharing their plight, finding donations for their rescue, finding a rescue organization to pull them from the kill shelter and many other ways.  Some dogs are strays.  Most dogs are taken to the shelters by their owners (and I use that term loosely) for any number of reasons: having a baby, moving, dog got old, "too much puppy", landlord said to, etc. etc.  

This, these, are another passion of mine.  I have plans to post a nail mail post tomorrow and hopefully that will happen.  If I am needed to assist with saving a life, or arranging transport of a rescued dog, or sharing dogs on death row, then that is where you'll find me.

Sadly, animal cruelty, neglect, abandonment, death is a part of life every single day.  If only I could win a multi-million dollar lottery........

Who am I trying to save now?  There are tons -- but Bard needs me most right now because he needs donations for his rescue.  There is a rescue group interested in him but he must have funds for his boarding, transport and other needs.  If you'd like to donate to his rescue, you can visit his Chip In.

What other passions do you have?


  1. I work for a rescue here in Tallahassee, FL that specializes in pulling dogs from high kill shelters (Last Hope Animal Rescue). I know that our rescue is usually pretty full but if you ever need help with transport in the north Florida area, feel free to contact me! rlm04h@gmail.com or frankenfemme@gmail.com. Good luck with your sweet baby Bard!

    1. One of the many places I have lived (Tallahassee) :) Thank you so much! As for Bard, he has just $25 to go in order to be freed!

  2. Love your style and passion for saving dogs! I have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Congratulations  http://omgwaitwhatpolishisthat.blogspot.com/2013/01/versatile-blogger-award.html
