Happy Howloween


Here's the deal. We've never really understood Halloween. We're country dogs, so we don't have small two leggers in strange get-ups coming to the door. Although, Jeffie would love that. He loves it when the doorbell rings and he'd like a chance to herd little kids. Second, frankly, most of the time we're nudists and shun clothing. (I co admit to the ocassional sweater or bandana.) Just trust me when I say I ain't gonna wear no costume. However, I keep hearing this thing about Trick or Treat. The treat part is what's interesting. Very interesting. I am definitely behind the idea of treats. Lots of treats. And for once Lucy and Jeffie agree with me. Especially if we don't even have to do any tricks to get the treats. What a great idea! So, forget the sit, stay, roll over, play dead, yadda yadda. Pass out the treats!
Happy Halloween from all of us at For Love of a Dog Jewelry!
Woof!

National Cat Day Oct 29

National Cat Day
October 29

October 29 is National Cat Day, a day to celebrate cats for their unconditional love and companionship, and to rescue those cats in need. More cats than dogs are euthanized every year, mostly because they usually arrive at shelters without any owner identification. The Animal Miracle Network estimates that approximately 4 million cats enter shelters every year, and 1 to 2 million of them are euthanized.

The primary goal of National Cat Day is to increase animal shelter adoptions of cats nationwide on October 29. This will be the first year that the Animal Miracle Network attempts to track the numbers for cats, but similar National Dog Day initiatives in the past have exceeded the goal by more than 12,000 dogs. Read more at Petcentric.

If you're able to add a cat to your family, please visit your local animal shelter or check Petfinder.. Can't adopt? Consider fostering a cat while it waits for it's forever home, or volunteering at your local shelter or rescue.

Skeeter and Isabel join me in wishing you a happy National Cat Day!
Woof!

Georgia Dog Fighting Raid

Have you seen the story on CNN about this Georgia dog raid? Called the Anatomy of a raid to rescue dogs allegedly bred to fight, it chronicles an October 15, 2009 search by authorities in rural Laurens County, Georgia on a property where nearly 100 dogs, malnourished, on chains and some scarred, were confiscated. Told from the point of view of the CNN reporter, there are photographs and video at CNN.

This all began from a anonymous tip to the Laurens County sheriff, Bill Harrell. Private investigators with Norred and Associates Inc. worked alongside Harrell and his deputies, leading tactical teams. The teams were made up of veteran investigators donating their time, effort and expertise, along with volunteers of the Dublin-Laurens County Humane Society, who collected and are caring for the dogs. They found inhumane conditions, but no obvious evidence of dog fighting, though testing is still going on.

Greg Norred is the CEO and founder of the private investigation team that was part of this raid. According to this CNN article, Norred was motivated by the Michael Vick dog fighting tragedy to donate his firm's time and money to do what he can to rescue dogs. In the past two years, his team has participated in 16 raids that have resulted in 20 people behind bars and the rescue of nearly 300 dogs.

I believe everything happens for a reason, though, admittedly, sometimes I never understand that reason. In the case, no matter how horrendous Michael Vick's crimes, perhaps we have him to thank for increased public awareness of dog fighting and the extra volunteer energies to combat it. Though I simply cannot find it in my heart to forgive Vick, whatever it takes to stop the incomprehensible cruelty of dog fighting can't be anything but good.

July Dog Fighting Ring Raid Update

We have an update from the Missouri Humane Society on some of the survivors of the July dog fighting ring raid:

They lived tortured lives full of pain and deprivation from owners who brutally bred, trained and fought them for “sport” and profit. Their second chance for a great life began July 8 when the Humane Society of Missouri Animal Cruelty Task Force rescued them in the largest dog fighting raid in U.S. history.

Since then the following three dogs, Fay, Jakob and Junior, have been lovingly cared for by HSMO staff and volunteers. Now, they are among the first of what they hope are many of the more than 500 dogs from this rescue who will go to rescue groups and, ultimately, wonderful new homes.


Fay is a five-year-old, black female American Pit Bull Terrier. Her scarred face tells her story – she has no lips, most likely ripped off in a brutal dog fight. Now, she will be nurtured by the founders and volunteers of Mutts-n-Stuff, a St. Louis-based bully breed rescue group. They hope Fay will eventually earn her Canine Good Citizen certification and become a Certified Therapy Dog.

Jakob is a one-year-old, brindle, male American Pit Bull Terrier. Though still a youngster, Jacob came to the Humane Society of Missouri's emergency shelter with many scars and a fresh wound on his face. The now lucky boy, who loves to snuggle and give very soft kisses, will travel this week to San Francisco for rehabilitation and a great new life with Our Pack Inc. Pit Bull Rescue

Junior is an 11 year-old, tan, male American Pit Bull Terrier. On his Rescue Day they found he had cataracts, many broken and rotting teeth and he was severely underweight. Now he’s a gentle, old soul, much healthier and ready to be pampered in “retirement” by the founders and volunteers of Missouri-based Broken Hearts, Mended Souls Rescue

From the very beginning, HSMO's goal for these desperate dogs has been to give each one the best possible chance for a loving forever home. With the help of hundreds of volunteers during the past three months, they rescued them from horrible daily abuse, treated their wounds, gave them nourishing food, walked and gave them loving attention, evaluated their health and behavior and have scoured the U.S. to find them caring, understanding homes.

We are thrilled Fay, Jakob and Junior have found their happy endings. The Humane Society of Missouri is continuing to work with these and many other rescue groups to keep the happy endings coming for as many of these deserving dogs as possible. A seventh person in this case has pled guilty to felony charges of dog fighting

Three woofs and a long howl to the Humane Society of Missouri!

October is Adopt A Dog Month


October is Adopt a Dog Month

All of us at For Love of a Dog encourage you to rescue a shelter dog. Take a look at Jeffie (shown above) when he was a puppy. Mama found Jeffie through Petfinder. He and his two brothers were at Dogwood Animal Shelter waiting for forever homes. Jeffie and his brothers all got adopted. Other homeless dogs are not so lucky.

Can you make room in your home for a homeless dog? Visit your local animal shelter, surf Petfinder, or contact a breed rescue group to find a canine companion to share life's adventures. Millions of loyal, lovable dogs are surrendered to shelters every years simply because their owners couldn't take care of them anymore. Large dogs, small dogs, purebred dogs, mixed breeds... they're all wonderful furry friends waiting for a special friend. Is it you?
.
There are so many benefits to having a canine companion it's impossible to list them all here. Dogs encourage people to exercise, they're great stress reducers, they are a source of non-judgemental love at its purest.
>
If you’re ready to find your very own faithful canine companion, check out American Humane’s very helpful resources to learn about the adoption process, behavior and training, and pet care.

Just can't add a canine family member at this time? How about helping at your local shelter? Walk a dog or two every week, play with the dogs to help socialize them, collect needed supplies. There are lots of ways to help and your local shelter would be glad to give you options that fit your lifestyle.

One last word on the subject for now ~ as a black dog myself, I have to urge you to please consider adopting or sponsoring a black dog because we black dogs are often overlooked.
