Thanks for the kind thoughts and words from everyone. I always avoided reading this post to stop my mind from wandering to the fact that one day, she would be gone. It is really nice to see how many people here love and take good care of their dogs. Too bad that isn't necessarily the case everywhere.

After all of the health problems he endured (and continues to battle) in 2012 I really didn't think he'd live to see 2013, yet there he is snoozing by my feet as I type this. I don't let a day go by without making sure he's aware of how much he's loved.

hey there say, nilepoc... my patty ann marie is part whippet, and part shar-pei (loose wrinkle skin, black tongue/mouth and all) and part lab, it is thought, as well--that showed more, when she was younger...

she has filled out, since we have not had our usual walks at this new house... she is fast, and looks so crazy fun, she does her 'whippet run'...

passed on over, :(

patty ann marie isa wonderful fun dog, but she is not that

for those that have those kind of dogs, you miss them
twice as much, being that you can ALMOST still FEEL them
near you... :( along with the sad memories of all the
fun: which my patty ann marie, DOES give...


hugs to you all, during these sad doggie moments..

10 years ago today, I (we) had to put down one of the kindest animals I've ever had, Bamboozle, due to Lupus. Certainly one of the toughest days of my life.

I foster for Golden Gate Lab Rescue and Buddy is my newest foster. He was a stray in Bakersfield but had been chipped and neutered. When owners were tracked down they didn't want him back and gave no backstory. It breaks m heart when I pick up these Labs that are so skinny and have asked for so little and give so much.

He's a joy and will probably be adopted within the week after I get a chance to assess him. So far he is just wonderful...but we haven't done the "cat" test yet. My first plan is to beef him up!

Loki wishes to know more about this (ahem!) "cat" test. Heh heh.

Does my cat disappear and become stealth like around my home or do they have a face off and tolerate each other. They used to have a "crash test dummy" cat at the vet, that was sorta liked a potted plant, partially blind, gimpy and could give a sheeet. They used to walk the incoming dogs by it to see their reaction. But he died of old age. So now we have to use our own cats as THE TEST. That way we can tell if they can go to a home with cats, or NO WAY.

Now ya know....no cats were injured in the making of this movie....but some have been royally pissed off.

As someone who live close to and works in Bako, I can attest to the often low-life nature of its inhabitants. There are soooo many unattended dogs in Kern County. Drives me crazy. Bunch o' creeptards down here, I'm sorry to say. Of course, some great folks, too, but it seems we have more than our share of the losers.

^^^^virtually all the lab fosters we get into the Monterey Bay Area are from Bakersfield. Evidently it's a high kill shelter with very few hours from pick up to getting the chop. Some people ask if fostering is hard, well generally not because labs are very desirable so they are adopted out quickly and labs, even abandoned ones, still have the big lab heart. What would be hard, and I could NOT do would be the volunteers that go into the shelter and must pick and choose the labs that seem adoptable. Can you imagine having to pass up some dogs? And many of he selected dogs are seniors! We do a pretty good job of placing seniors with families, usually seniors themselves, that don't want to deal with all the rambunctiousness of a young dog. The senior dogs, over 8 years old, are adopted for free. Others pay a fee that helps off set all the vet costs as each dog is microchipped, spayed and neutered if needed, prior to adoption.

Gotta go walk the dogs!

The problem is that people fail to evaluate their lifestyle and proper dog selection.

If you're not cragging with the pooch, or taking it on vacations, get a small dog. One that is manageable with willing friends.

Crag-dog? Be prepared for the sh#t-shows! Some people love 'em, some hate. Try to figure out logistics before you get there.

Cats? F*#k 'em.

Again it comes back to your lifestyle and getting the right breed. Try for a rescue, they need homes!
