New faces for U at the zoo:)
"No matter how little money and how few possessions you own, having a dog makes you rich."
-Louis Sabin

Have we got the cuties here!!! Ooooh, don't you just want to kiss all their faces:)

These are 3 of the 8 pups that are in the litter we picked up from the pound 2 weeks ago.

The day is done and they sure got alot finished.  The skeleton of the building is up!!!
We should be able to pour the concrete by the weekend if all goes well:)

Lately my phone has been ringing off the hook, people calling me to take in dogs.  
I have been getting anywhere from 2 to 20 calls daily:( Eeek!!
While I wish I could take them all, there is only so much I can do...
I have a 3 month waiting list for owners who want to surrender their dogs.  
It really gets to me, but I can only do so much and we are busting at the seams trying to find space.  Not to mention the money is getting really tight with gas prices, tons of vet bills and we have already taken in more animals than last year and the year is not over. 
I try to stay as positive as I can, but every now and then some fear creeps in...
Enough babbling, let's focus on the good, the lives saved & beautiful faces featured below!!!

This is 'Aggie" she just finished her last heart worm treatment and will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.  
She is incredibly sweet about 3 years old, great with other dogs, loves food of course and is just a wonderful companion.

These are her pups, Flo, Bro, Joe & Moe:)

"Oogie" is soooo cool!!!  He is some type of Shar Pei mix. 12 weeks old he drools and snores:)
We received a donation of toys from our online artist Angels last week, that he is enjoying very much!!  Thank YOU so much, they are having a great time with the stuff!!!!

'These five pups were under a dog bed at animal control, one was in the drain in the back of the kennels.  Only about 4 weeks old, we have been treating them for Parvo.  
They are doing well but aren't out of the woods yet.

This darling Pug is "Izzabella".  She is a 2 year old female.  She is on behavior modification medication for the short term.  When she came to me, she was spinning uncontrollably and attacking her tail to the point that part of her tail is missing.  
We are retraining her and she is responding well!!!  

Last one for the nite..
This is "Daisy" a Shepherd mix.  Meek and mild, co-dependent, will be your shadow and faithful friend.  She is approximately 1-2 years of age.  About 20 pounds underweight after nursing 9 puppies. 

So many more here, just wanted to share their gorgeous faces with you...
Off to bed, today has been a good day:)

I'm so verra, verra happy for you Miz Bernie!

Do you have any matches for the Oompa Loompas and ChiChi yet? ChiChi found a turtle in our backyard! I wouldn't let the kiddies keep him though because he's wild and should be allowed to live in our woods ;) We also have a couple of squirrels that taunt ChiChi through the windows....lol

Have you and Jeff in thoughts and prayers.

p.s. - Izzabella, missing part of her tail? You know I'd take her in a heartbeat!

Bernie, the shelter is looking great and of course so are all the dogs. Have you ever looked into getting food from Science Diet? Her is the link.


Keep up the good work and sending happy thoughts Jeff's way.

Bernie - I'm so excited to watch the progress on the shelter. I'm glad I found your blog at such an exciting time!
We are so happy to have just found your blog and our hearts are warmed by all that you've done and are doing.

Keep up the good work.
If you bring a puppy out with you when you come to CA, I can give it a good home. Nice backyard, stay at home mom who has had big dogs before.

Its so great to see the process of the shelter! How exciting!
Oh Bernie, these little guys are so cute!!! I wish I could take anothr doggie in. Sophie is doing SO well these days....
I wish I could have them all. I have a shadow like your shepard mix in the pictures. She came from living under the bleachers at the High School. Take Care
Oh my gosh, I just want to lay in the grass and let those cute puppies romp all over me!

You're an angel Bernie!!!

such sweet little mugglets..... been thinking of you, sending you good vibes, wellwishes, hugs, and love. xox
Oh my goodness Bernie - your life is a whirlwind and your strength amazes me. These cuties are so adorable - it breaks my heart to even contemplate their stories. The shelter is coming along brilliantly - Way to Go!

What wonderful photos! I just find it so hard taking photos of dogs, they just keep looking the other way and wriggling. Great news about your new building too!
I wish all the luck in your project!Sorry if I do not visit here much...:-)
OMG, we have one of those pink frosted plastic donuts that Oogie is holding. It has been one of my pup's favorite toys since he was a little thing. And one of the few like that he hasn't chewed to pieces.

I call it the SImpsons Donut because it looks like something Homer Simpson would eat.

That picture brought a big smile to my face!
