So much to tell you. My mom and I have been so busy. My mom saves animals and I help her. Mom said I'm the best helper ever. My mom and I hope everyone had a good Holiday and Happy New Year. My mom broke her ankles she fell. Her foot went to sleep and she got up and went to walk and fell. I was there to help her. I had to go and stay at my Aunt Robyns house. I stay over night there when we baby sit and I love going over there. I have so much fun there. My mom called me on the phone to. Now we… Continue
The story of the Fur Angel
In a place far beyond the horizon Angels are trading their wings and halos for fur coats and bones to be born on earth as dogs. But first they must learn what it means to be a dog, so they go to school. They learn about various dog breeds and different dog jobs and when they graduate they get their fur coat and are born on earth to find you...the person they were made for.
And when their time comes, they trade back their fur coat for their wings… Continue

Last Christmas my Mom passed away and that left her 8 yr. old 117 lb. German Shepard , Mimi to be cared for. I have a tenant in Moms house that goes to work early in the a.m. and returns late in the evening. So Doggie Day Care seems to be the answer. Ceasar , however being the Alpha he is, has taken over her care completely. He decides when she eats,when she goes out and where and when she sleeps. If you can imagine a 20 lb. Jack Russel escorting a huge GS around a fenced in 1/2 acre yard, you… Continue

Ciao a tutti.
this post will be a bet to myself because I have really not much to say. So where am I beginning from? From here, from my sitting at the computer while Mimma is sleeping in the other room. Lucky creature. Before sitting I had to shut two bedroom door otherwise she would surely go on a bed to make her winter dreams. "She has a dream", not so serious and universal like Martin Luther King but I would like to know it. I am a new entry. I don't speak english so well but I can… Continue

Every Valentine's Day since 1992, I have celebrated my dog Maui (pictured above) with an abundance of gratitude.
That's the day that I brought her home with me when she was a tiny puppy, and that's the day I launched Do You Remember Love? years later, in 2007.
Maui passed away in the summer of 2008, and I dreaded Valentine's Day 2009. But the day ended up being wonderful. I was still… Continue
I've never written a in a blog, but I guess it's a good way to get things you're feeling out of your system. I will probably just ramble. I just read the most beautiful tribute to a four legged friend and it almost brought tears to my eyes. I don't know if it sounds weird or not but I love and have loved all of you babies as if they were my kids. It's interesting to me that "dog" spelled backwards is "God". It's always made me think about what a wonderful gift they are to mankind. I'm sitting… Continue
This is a process by which the humans drench the floor, walls and themselves. You can help by shaking vigorously and frequently.
Two-wheeled exercise machines, invented for dogs to control body fat. To get maximum aerobic benefit, you must hide behind a bush and dash out, bark loudly and run alongside for a few yards; the person then swerves, and falls into the bushes, and you prance away.
Most of us tend to think our dogs are pretty smart and on occasion they have even been known to outwit us, at least temporarily. So how can you tell if your dog is really smart... maybe even smarter than you? Here's a few indications...
1. Neighbors complain about loud music and howling coming from your apartment in the middle of the day when you're at work
2. You find mysterious sculpture of a human (who looks strikingly like you) on a leash in your living room
3. Ice… Continue

The one absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous, is his dog.
A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground where the wintery winds blow, and the snow drives fiercely, if only he may be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the sores and wounds that come… Continue

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
Priscilla Maynard-Correia I am very sad tonight. I had to put my eldest dog, father to my remaining dogs, to sleep today. Timber was a gorgeous dog and extremely loveable. With all that is going on, this was something I did not need to have to do right now! I love you and miss you Timber! His picture is in My pictures.
I just got an email about Stephen Huneck, the founder of Dog Mountain & the Dog Chapel in St. Johnsbury, VT. He has died of a self inflicted gunshot wound - So, so sad!!!
Dog Mountain & the Dog Chapel has been such a special place for me for many years. Stephen was always there for the Annual Dogfest Parties - they were great fun!!!
Stephen will be missed dearly. Dog Mountain will not be the same without him.

On Jan. 5, my husband and I had to make that dreaded decision to put our Buddy down. He was 12 years old and had cancer for the second time in 2 years. It was a very fast growing tumor and was affecting him going potty. His back legs were giving out and he was falling constantly. That has to be the hardest thing to do to take a life of something you love so deeply. Al and I have no children so as a lot of you know from your own pets, that was our baby.We took him to the vet and there were other… Continue
Wishing all of you, Humans and Fluffs a healthy 2010 and beyond. Oliver the Bichon, Lexus and Beemer the Coton de Tulears and Coupe and Deville the Main Coon cats all survived the move to TN from NY. We are loving our new surroundings.
My OLIVER book is still selling and all profits go to rescue. The local paper did a story about OLIVER, last week. www.worldofoliver.com is the website for OLIVER.
