Saturday Survey: Yellow Dog Project

I posted earlier this week about the Yellow Dog Project, where people whose dogs need a little space put yellow ribbons on their leashes to warn people to approach with caution. It was something I had never heard of before – how about you?

Had you heard of the Yellow Dog Project before this week?

Shelter Sunday: Deaf Dane Rescue / Oakridge, Oregon

She has a hard time holding it all night sometimes. She is a sweet baby and wants so much to please. All she needs is some time, and a loving home.
