Bruno's Forever Mom sent me two photos of him and an update. It's so nice to know he has such a wonderful home. :) Chris Cassner Arendtsville, PA
Happy Spring. I hope you made it through the polar vortex! I just wanted to let you know that Bruno is doing great. He's a real pal. I've been working from home a lot these days and he makes a great companion for the work day. He mostly sleeps by my desk until we go for our walks.
He sometimes goes after certain dogs in a dog park but I'm working on that. Actually I'm considering having a trainer help me with that. Other than that, he's great, a really good match for me. The first photo is how Bruno spends most of his day when I work from home. He sleeps right next to my desk. The second is him as co pilot, we were going hiking. He's not so much a hiker - he's more of a sniffer.

Chris; Great Job! Look at how happy this darling boy is. He looks so content!!!

Princess Nala had her first experience with playing outside
today. I wish I had a good video of it. She was hesitant at first.
Typically, when she sees a toy she takes it and guards it. After a few
times watching her foster sister Lucy fetch and return the ball, she
took off after it and even brought it back a few times! I just love
watching her do regular dog things!
Congratulations to Harley, who after almost two years in foster care, has found his forever home with Kim Barnett, who in addition to being Harley's forever Mom, is a trainer in Connecticut. We, and Harley, are so fortunate to have found her!
Dogs drool and Birds rule or at least that's the way in my house.
Amos has seen many of dogs in her 27 yrs of living in my house. I have
had her since she was 3 days old I worked with an Avian vet. She was
dropped off because the parents killed one of the babies and she didn't
know how to hand feed babies. Long story short she never came back for
the babies or paid her bills. The vet kept one and I kept Amos who is
really Amosita -- didn't know she was a female until yrs later. Anyhow
Amos has taught many dogs that she rules the roost and Scooby learned
I will never bring about world peace. I will not save the rain forest.
I'm not a brain surgeon and I'll never transplant an organ to save a life.
I don't have the ear of a powerful politician or world power.
I can't end world hunger.
I'm not a celebrity, and God knows I'm not glamorous!
I'm not looked up to by millions around the world. Very few people even recognize my name.
I'll never win the Nobel prize.
I'll never save the rain forest or end global warming.
There are a lot of things that I'll never do or become.
But today I placed a dog!
It was a small, scared, bundle of flesh and bones that was dropped off
in a shelter by unfeeling people that didn't care what happened to it,
but yet who were responsible for it even having existence in the first
I found it a home.
It now has contentment and an abundance of love. A warm place to sleep
and plenty to eat. A child has a warm fuzzy new friend who will give
them unquestioning devotion and teach them about responsibility and
A wife and mother has a new spirit to nurture and care for. A husband
and a father has a companion to sit at his feet at the end of a hard day
of work and help him relax and enjoy life. And a sense of security,
that when he is gone all day at work, that there is a protector and a
guardian in his home to keep watch over his family.
No, I'm not a rocket scientist but today I saved one of God's precious creatures. Today, I made a difference!
I Am An Animal Rescuer
My job is to assist God's creatures
I was born with the need to fulfill their needs
I take in new family members without plan, thought or selection
I have bought dog food with my last dime
I have patted a mangy head with a bare hand
I have hugged someone vicious and afraid
I have fallen in love a thousand times and I have cried into the fur of a lifeless body
I have Animal Friends and friends who have Animal Friends
I don't often use the word "pet"
I notice those lost at the road side
And my heart aches
I will hand raise a field mouse
And make friends with a vulture
I know of no creature unworthy of my time
I want to live forever if there aren't animals in Heaven
But I believe there are!
Why would God make something so perfect and leave it behind?
We may be master of the animals,
But the animals have mastered themselves
Something people still haven't learned
War and abuse make me hurt for the world
But a rescue that makes the news gives me hope for humankind
We are a quiet but determined army
And making a difference every day
There is nothing more necessary than warming an orphan
Nothing more rewarding than saving a life
No higher recognition than watching them thrive
There is no greater joy than seeing a baby play
who only days ago, was too weak to eat
I am an Animal Rescuer
My work is never done
My home is never quiet
My wallet is always empty
But my heart is always full
In the game of life, I have already won!
Hi all! Wade is feeling frisky today! his incision looks
just about the best I've ever seen, and he is joining me at work today
because I had to go in extra ridiculous early for my delivery truck
today which came 5 hours earlier than usual. Here's hoping he has a
better time hanging around with my groomer than he does hanging out
alone at home!
Hi all! Just wanted to give a little update on Prince. He is a
sweetheart. Loves to give kisses & snuggle. Has shown no
aggression at all & we're hoping it stays that way when he meets the
pack (I think it will).
Melanie Stein ♥all you need is love and a dog♥
I have really enjoyed having Scooby in my home. He has a couple of problems; he has a bad case of separation anxiety and being crated. I cannot even go out the door that he isn't scratching at the door the minute I leave. He really hates being crated and cries and shakes the whole time he's in the crate. But we are working on it!! He absolutely is a great dog other wise he loves sleeping with me and he is constantly by my side on the couch. He follows me everywhere when I get up because he is afraid I will leave I guess.He loves going for rides in the car is playing with stuffed animals now even when I toss them in the yard he will bring them right back to me. LOVES going for his walks twice a day even sometimes 3 times a day. I am going to a friends this afternoon to test him with his cat and I will test him with children. He is very very happy because he received a big package from Byron Graham. He got so many presents and even shared them with his sister Mandy. Thank you Byron, for being so generous to our Scooby.
I got an email from Cleo's mom today with some new pics. I love this purple cowboy hat, lol!
Cleo is now off of all 3 eye drops that she needed for her
corneal ulcer and has even had a good teeth cleaning. She looks very
good! I can't thank this family enough for choosing to adopt her! She
was just shy of 12 years old when she came here. Partially blind and
partially deaf and VERY curious. I really thought I would have a hard
time placing her but, thankfully, this family proved me wrong!
These two levely ladies are looking for a forever home. After
living many years with their owner, they found themselves at a shelter.
Can you imagine? In their golden years.
Milly is 12 years
young and still has spunk. She loves to collect all the dog bowls for
me. She also loves to cuddle with my son Alex. After being to the vet
she is very healthy. She has a cataract in one eye but she does great.
She plays with the other dogs and runs in the yard.
is a 11 year old beauty. She is very friendly and loves all people and
dogs. She likes to chew her nyla bones and nap. When she goes outside
she runs and rolls in the grass. She was also found to be very healthy
,only needs eye drops to one eye. She has taken to my son Aidan.
girls are fantastic. They are house trained. They just need to go out a
little more often. They love people and dogs. They are calm and quite.
These two gals need a
home to call their own. Do you want to make their golden years great?
Its been 2 weeks since Brady and Rudy have been adopted!! WOW!! 2 weeks can you believe it???!!! I still think of them everyday and wonder what they are up to.
Just got off the phone with Glenda their new mommy and she said they are doing Great!! They have both settled in fine. Neighbors have come over to visit and they tell her how well behaved they are. (after the initial "YAY NEW PEOPLE ARE HERE TO SEE US!!) She said all is good and she has no complaints.
Took them to her vet this past week for their checkup with the new vet. Now sit down for this one........ready??.............................The vet that saw them when they were with me now lives near Glenda and works for her vet!! She needed to call my vet to get the titre results from when they had their titre test here. She even remembers seeing them!! how cool is that?? There appt went well and both are very healthy. Which is great news for a senior boy like Rudy at age 10!
I told Glenda that Brady needs longer adjustment time when being introduced to a new dog he is unfamiliar with. When I first got Brady and Rudy, He wanted to get at my Daisy SO BAD!! He barked and and growled and snarled through the x-pen I had set up to keep them separated. But once they got a chance to sniff each other through the fence and get adjusted a bit, once the introduction was made, just shy of two weeks after he got here, he was fine.
Brady is a little rambunctious when he is out for his walks and needs a little more leash training but she is fine with that. Other than that they are doing great!! She and her family adore them and they have adjusted to the move just fine. So happy to hear. So all's good with Brady and Rudy!! I have enclosed some pics she sent me.....enjoy!!
They love every last bite, Sunday and Maggie licked the pan clean!!
For those interested in the recipe, see below;
·6 pounds of ground turkey or ground chicken or ground
beef,or 2 family pac
No Salt, Pepper or onions
What I found to be the easiest way is- in a pot large enough to mix all the
ingredients in, this way you only have one pot to clean.
·Assorted fresh vegetables,
can use frozen – carrots, broccoli, kale, zucchini, cauliflower, spinach,
etc.– at least 3 different ones per
batch, and should represent only 25% of the mixture
·6 eggs (1 per pound of
·½ cup fresh parsley (more or
less) - optional
·uncooked oatmeal about 1 cup
– optional if your dog has grain intolerance
vegetables to the same pot to thaw.
you use fresh veges - In the food processor: - Process the fresh veges, and parsley together. Add the rest of the ingredients to pot, mix
well. Spray 2 baking pans with Pam or grease pan with butter or oil. The pans I
use are oblong cake pans approx.9x13x2Six pounds of meat per
pan. Two pans 12 pounds of meat.
you have a butcher you might be able to get a better price on the meat since you are buying in bulk.
at 350 about 40 minutes or until turkey loaf looks browned around the sides of
each pan into meal-size portions and wrap individually in tin foil, and freeze.
serve, heat in the microwave with water.
course you can reduce or increase recipe according to your needs.
Buddy went to work with me yesterday. I work with people
that have special needs & they love it when I bring my dogs to
visit. Buddy thoroughly enjoyed all of the loving he got from everyone
& was a perfect gentleman.
