Video Friday Funny: Stella Loves the Leaves!

October 24, 2014

Hard to argue with someone who’s having that much fun!

I’ve read where people are wondering if something is wrong with her hips or spine due to the way she lies down, but her family insists she is just fine. She lies that way to cool off her belly. My beagle / foxhound / something else mix, Molly, slept that way, and she never appeared to have any problems.

Good day, and good dog!

Urgent request for funding for knee surgery for Army dog Buddy

October 23, 2014

Buddy Pets for PatriotsFrom today’s e-mail bag:

Buddy is a ten year-old Lab who got a second chance on life when he was adopted by Maureen, a career Army officer with more than 20 years of service to our country. Buddy has always been an Army dog, but his previous family got reassigned to Germany and were unable to take him.

We think this picture of Buddy and his new Army mom says it all.

Just 3 days after coming home, Buddy was playing with a new ball when he tore his cruciate ligament, an injury seen in older labs.

Buddy has an excellent prognosis and is scheduled for surgery on Saturday, October 25. It cannot wait.

Maureen shares what Buddy means to her family:

“He’s a good dog who has stolen the hearts of me and my children. As challenging as this is for me to deal with, I know that it was meant to be. This injury was inevitable and had it happened prior to Monday, Buddy might not have ever been adopted. The thought breaks my heart.”

We’re working with Pet Chance to fund Buddy’s urgent surgery; monies raised will go directly to the treating veterinarian.


On behalf of this military family, we thank you!

Dogs Keep Owner Alive After Fall

October 22, 2014

ABC News is reporting on two Golden Retrievers who stuck with 76-year old Judy Muhe after she fell and was unable to get up. Judy’s Parkinson’s Disease makes it tough for her to keep warm, and the dogs lay next to her on the floor for two days until help arrived. I knew there was a reason I like Goldens!

Video Friday Funny: Dog Alarm Clocks

October 17, 2014

My little Daisy has figured out that no one likes to be awakened by barking. If she barks, one of the boys will inevitably yell at her. So, instead, she climbs up on the bed and uses her nose to knock everything off the nightstand. Wakes me up every time!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge to Rescue Pets

October 16, 2014

Congratulations to the Central California SPCA in Fresno for winning the fifth and final year of the Rachael Ray $100K Challenge, which pitted 50 shelters across the country against each other in an effort to save more animals during the summer of 2014 than they did over the same time period in 2013.

CCSPCA’s website cites the following accomplishments achieved during the Challenge:

  • Saved nearly 3,000 animals’ lives!
  • Led the nation in lives saved for 2 months – June & July.
  • August 31 had the most adoptions ever recorded in a single day – 94. 42 of those 94 were offsite.
  • Last week of August (25-31) had the most adoptions ever recorded in a single week. 334 adoptions were made with 66 of those being offsite.
  • Both July adoptions of 757 and August adoptions of 1087 surpassed any previous month’s adoptions ever recorded.
  • Most adoption spay/neuter surgeries performed in one day ever recorded – 74 on July 25.
  • Most spay/neuter surgeries in one month ever recorded – 969 in August.
  • But one of our MOST IMPORTANT accomplishments was that no euthanasia was performed for space or time for an entire 3 months!

Way to go , Fresno!

Since 2010, hundreds of contestants have dedicated themselves to this three month contest to increase their adoption numbers over the same period the previous year. In this final year of the challenge, the competing shelters saved more than 68,000 lives in just three months. In five years total, challengers saved more than a QUARTER OF A MILLION lives – an increase of nearly 60,000 cats and dogs – with dozens of animal shelters increasing their adoptions by 100% or more compared to previous years.

Kudos to all 50 of the shelters who participated in the challenge.

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!
