Pneumo - our addition

Posted by letumrun, 28 September 2008 - - - - - - · 294 views

I didn't think we would add another until the unthinkable happened.  Then came Pneumo.  Happy, trouble, goofy and struggling in his own way.  His undefeated spirit despite his hardship is a beacon to me.  I hear him in the mornings struggling, then I see him - tail waggin happy to see me and Kevin.  When he has a bad night, he lets us know by jumping in...


You've really gotta hold on me!

So today was Sophie's annial exam.  We transport in those hard plastic crates.  Because she is so skiddish, I leave her in it until we are in the vets office and then I leash her.  I open the door to th crate to put her lesh on, and as expected, he cowers to the back of the crate.  I put her lead on, she hangs out in the back of the cate and I wait for...


Give peace a chance - Violence in other breeds

Posted by letumrun, 16 September 2008 - - - - - - · 146 views

I have been reading a lot about other breeds and the violent acts they have committed againt people and other creatures. I watched Dog Town and the reformation (?) of Michael Vicks Dogs and I have something to say.

Italian Greyhouds are the best breed ever!

I believe that certain breeds, like pit bills and rotties have characteristics in their nature,...


Why worms?

Posted by letumrun, 13 September 2008 - - - - - - · 203 views

So whats the big incentive with worms?  I don't think I've met a dog that isn't up for a good worm rubbin'.  Today Maggie must have found her spot and she rubed all over!  She was happy as could be, I didn't have the heart to stop her.  She was in her element, she was in the zone.
Rubbing her head, then her neck then it progressed to...


The pretty, the petty and politics

I have been volunteering for rescue for just over a year now.  We have taken in a lot of dogs and sent many to happy forever homes.  That makes me very proud.  My husband has been a supporter of this volunteering, somedays with a happy smile, somedays sharing my tears, somedays slightly pissed we had seven dogs at the house  :American Flag:  

Each dog is...


Its Maggie's Turn

Posted by letumrun, 09 September 2008 - - - - - - · 139 views

So our first is the last you are really getting to know.  Not sure why I did it this way.  I suppose Maggie has evolved SO much in her 12 years, I don't even know where to begin.
We bought Maggie at a pet shop in the mall.  No lectures, I know.  We've done a lot of good since then. Moving on.  She was 6 weeks old and a spit fire!  She had to...


So whats a hearing dog anyway

Posted by letumrun, 08 September 2008 - - - - - - · 122 views

I know I keep writing about Zoe.  I have mentioned she is my heart dog.  One can't begin to understand that although the love is the same for all of them - endless, boundless- there is something so special about Zoe.

I have mentioned we adopted Sophie a few years back, she is special in her own rite.  She is deaf and spunky now, she was so afraid of...


More on Zoe

Posted by letumrun, 05 September 2008 - - - - - - · 196 views

Zoe is a mystery sometimes.  Her beginning was most difficult.  As I adopted her through rescue, what I know I sketchy.  I am certain the ASPCA and a court case was involved.  I know she had a broken leg and it had to heal before she became ours.  She was in foster care for a very long time.  When we brought her home she was very afraid.  It took months for...


Holy guacamole batman!

My deaf girl Sophie is an itty bitty.  Eight pounds to be exact.  She is a firecracker in every way.  When we first adopted her she was afraid of everything (That is how she got her name for weeks she wouldn't come out from behind the Sofa, so we just started calling her Sophie - her real name was Molly, being deaf we knew she wouldn't notice the...


Trying to get a grip

Posted by letumrun, 02 September 2008 - - - - - - · 211 views

When a long time foster leaves, one like Jack, I struggle.  DH struggles, my child notices the change, the pack changes.  This morning was weird, tears were shed, the pack was on edge, my child was quiet.  Everyone notices the void but won't talk about it.  We keep looking to the sink, to the counter, his empty crate behind me, I forgot to pack his...
