The Animal Channel carries the story of Gumby, a white hound who was found wandering the streets and was taken in by the Charleston Animal Society.

From Fox32 in Chicago:

Lana, a 3-year old yellow Lab, gained fame as the Saddest Dog in the World when a picture of her in her kennel was widely circulated in 2015. She was adopted after that, but was returned to the shelter less than a year later when she snapped at her adoptive mom.

A little different take on our Shelter Sunday feature this week.

He loves to bask in the sun, so he takes his bed with him to a sunny spot for a nice afternoon nap. Mr. Fry also will carry his bed with him to be near his humans if they moved into another room.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Riding the Rails with K.C.

I just love it when I can refer you to one of my favorite blogs, the one associated with The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC.

They recently carried the story of KC, an Australian Shepherd / Border Collie mix who was found riding on top of a boxcar! Animal control officers used a forklift to lower the dog to the ground, and he is now up for adoption from the Mississippi Animal Rescue League.
