On the go, from the road...
Don't you love wireless!!!
I started writing this post a few days ago, sitting outside with my friend Monica's house in Chicago.
Having to carry Kobie out, because he was so weak & malnourished, he could barely stand. Now isn't he just the most stunning dog!!!
A big smile, for everyone who helps me save these guys:)
This was the last picture I took of Kya and her kids, before I took them to Anti Cruelty Society in Chicago.
I was fortunate enough to meet one of the families that adopted them, the day I was there.
Now, Finally!!! Thanks for being patient with me, the winners to my blog giveaways:
Here is another fun pet link to My Friend's Pet Boutique blog.
Brook, is currently watching Freedom for me while I am at the show, she called to tell me that she got her a new dress.
A far cry from the puppy mill she was taken from, she is being spoiled & is playing with 2 English Bulldogs & 2 Boston Terriers.
I wanted to give you something to smile about so check out this funny youtube that was taken the weekend they were at a dog show: "Dogs playing on Brook's head in the Morning"
So looks like I'll be busy when I get home. Eeeek!!
Till tomorrow, much love...
My volunteer work with the H.S.U.S. puppy mill seizure here in Tennessee, has kept me very busy and has emotionally drained me, beyond words.
We took in 33 dogs from the seizure to be placed with "Anti Cruelty Society" in Chicago.
Giving them time to get settled, groomed, thorough vet checks & health certificates, before their trip.
I know what these dogs had to endure and that very soon, they would be in homes, real homes and not cages. So many of these dogs have spent years of their lives, in horrible conditions and now they would have a chance at a true life. I decided to stayed a few extra days in Chicago to recharge & unwind. Stopped at the shelter on Saturday to find people lined up all around the block to adopt these dogs for they had been on the news.
These pictures were taken, when they took their first steps on ground.
Scared to death at first, after several hours, they realized they were safe & started to relax, play and smile.
These dogs lived in rabbit hutches, many, many, dogs in one hutch.
Click "here" to watch video footage of the rescue.
Their poor feet were so embedded with fecal matter even after multiple washings & soakings we could not get it off their pads.
I had been on one other puppy mill bust a few years ago, but this was the absolute worst.
Nothing can ever prepare you for the unspeakable things that people can do..
But until you see it with your very own eyes, it is that very moment, you will dedicate your lifetime to the cause.
While I know many of you have a hard time with these types of heavy posts, it is important to read, to help change the world so to speak. I always try to shield you by not showing the gore, for I know most of you have a very difficult time with these things, but you will know by just looking at the faces, they need us to help them.. So please take a moment for their sakes.
Puppy mills are a greed based industry, preying on animal loving people.
I am asking you, if you love animals and want to Help Stop Puppy mills, join H.S.U.S. in their campaign to end this horrible industry. I have seen first hand what people who are dedicated to the cause can do. Whether you are there physically working or just being in support of stopping inhumane treatment of animals, we all can play a part in seeing an end to puppy mills.
Please post a banner to your website or blog, buy a t-shirt, join Facebook and commit to the cause. I know I have readers from all over the world, it costs nothing to put a banner up, to help raise awareness, so please if you believe in the ethical treatment of animals post the banner. Together, we can make a difference for the animals!!!
