10th February 2011 by admin Comments Off on Spot

Spot lived a hard life, and was old well before his time.  He struggled but kept going.  When he reached the point where we could not keep him comfortable, we chose to end his suffering.  He was a sweet, sad boy, and our lives were enriched by the 6 months we spent with him. Rest […]

8th September 2010 by admin Comments Off on Lacey

Lacey is a 12 year old Dalmatian mix female. I think she is probably mixed with border collie or Australian shepherd. We agreed to take her after receiving the following e-mail: I have a trailer that I rented out to some tenants, at this address. They had a female Dalmation dog. When those tenants moved […]

Sweet Maggie left us in November, after a sudden onset of kidney failure. Her time in her new home was short, but she was very much loved while she was there. Maggie is an adorable little pixie.

3rd July 2010 by Administrator Comments Off on Dolly

Update August, 8 2010 Dolly spent a week with one of our foster families while I was out of town. She got along so well there, we’ve agreed that she will either stay with them, or with us. She would probably even be content to go back and forth. Contentment is Miss Dolly’s natural state. […]

November 12, 2010 I am so sad to report the passing of Missy. We had a potential home for her, and were making plans to bring her to Washington. She was doing well just a few days ago, but deteriorated in just a few days. By the time she saw the vet, it was too […]


22nd June 2010 by admin Comments Off on Princess

July 26, 2010 About 2 weeks ago, Princess started losing interest in food. At first I thought it was depression, as her appetite for treats, and anything that was fed by hand was excellent. I accommodated her, but after a week, things got worse. An abdominal X-ray revealed a huge mass that was pressing on […]

Update September 4, 2011 Bongo is now 15 1/2 years old.  He has been with us 15 months.  His legs are weak and he needs help getting around, but his spirit is strong, and his heart is full of love.  When my day is going wrong, I go sit in his bed. He always makes […]
