The gate was left open
one bright sunny day
So I thought I would go,
explore, run, and play.

Seeing new things,
this is such fun!
But where do I go,
now that I'm done?

Was it back this way,
or maybe that
Where is my home?
I want to go back.

I have on my collar,
it's red, white and blue
But, I don't have my tags
to give someone a clue.

A man comes and gets me,
And puts me in his truck
He's taking me home,
Oh, what luck!

Wait a minute,
this isn't my home
I'm stuck in a cage,
scared and alone.

People come see me,
so I wag my tail
I love the attention
I get in this jail.
The food is okay,
and the bed is too
But I really miss home,
yet what can I do?

I miss my yard,
my bed, and my ball
But, I miss my master
the most of all.

Where is my master?
It must have been weeks
I know he will come.
He really loves me

Then someone takes me
down a long hall
I'm confused and uncertain,
I stare at the wall.

I feel a prick,
things start to go dark
I think of my master
and me in the park.

I'm going to sleep now
with him on my mind
Little do I know,
my fate has been signed.

I pray when I wake,
he will be there
Holding me close,
stroking my hair.

I'm sorry I strayed,
who knew the cost?
But it doesn't have to happen

when dogs get lost

"He is my other eyes that can see above the clouds; my other ears that hear above the winds. He is the part of me that can reach out into the sea. He has told me a thousand times over that I am his reason for being; by the way he rests against my leg; by the way he thumps his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he shows his hurt when I leave without taking him. (I think it makes him sick with worry when he is not along to care for me.) When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive. When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile. When I am happy, he is joy unbounded. When I am a fool, he ignores it. When I succeed, he brags. Without him, I am only another man. With him, I am all-powerful. He is loyalty itself. He has taught me the meaning of devotion. With him, I know a secret comfort and a private peace. He has brought me understanding where before I was ignorant. His head on my knee can heal my human hurts. His presence by my side is protection against my fears of dark and unknown things. He has promised to wait for me... whenever... wherever - in case I need him. And I expect I will - as I always have. He is just my dog."

Chained Dog’s Plea

I wish someone would tell me
what it is that I’ve done wrong.
Why do I have to stay chained up
and left alone so long?. . .
The children never walk me.
They always say, "Not now."
I wish that I could please them.
Won’t someone tell me how?

— Edith Lassen Johnson

What is Rescue?

Often enough, I hear from people who desire to assist with rescue, but are apologetic about not being able to actually house an animal for a short period of time. This got me to thinking, and I want to share a few of the more serious thoughts with you.
RESCUE is volunteering to help comb that matted creature which looks more like a doormat than a Samoyed.

RESCUE is walking through the local shelter, looking for animals which can be saved but are on their last days, then notifying the programs in your area.

RESCUE is giving up a day or two each month to help give baths, when you could be at the movies or swimming.

RESCUE is stopping by out of the blue to give hugs and help walk the dogs.

RESCUE is surprising your local program with a gift of water bowls, leashes, or toys.

RESCUE is offering to drive a dog from one place to another, without regard to cost for mileage, or compensation of time.

RESCUE is spreading the word to people you meet, each time you get the chance, and taking names.

RESCUE means sharing your home, even if only for a few hours.

And finally, RESCUE means showing that sometimes, your heart speaks louder than your head.

Warmest regards,

E. Jay McWhorter, Karay Samoyeds

When Purrs Become Bites
Your cat is sitting in your lap, purring contentedly as you stroke him, when he suddenly bites your hand and jumps down. What happened?

There are several possibilities agreed upon by behaviorists as to why a cat can turn hostile under such peaceful circumstances:

He has begun to doze in your lap, wakes suddenly and is momentarily disoriented by his surroundings and by being "confined" by your hands. After he jumps down he may look confused and begin to groom himself to calm down.
Sensitive or nervous cats can be overstimulated by prolonged petting. There are usually warning signs of the impending attack--restlessness, tail twitching, flattened ears, head turned toward hand. It is important for the cat owner to be alert to these signals and to stop petting the cat before this point is reached. At this time a small food treat could be given, along with a few more strokes, to gradually increase his threshold of tolerance. Never physically punish the cat for biting as it may cause him to become defensive and to seriously retaliate.
Petting the cat's sensitive stomach area almost always elicits a natural defense reaction which includes wrapping his paws around the person's wrist, holding on, and biting.
Cats vary in how much they like being petted or held by people. Cats that do not enjoy prolonged petting or being held may still play with their owners, follow them around the house, sleep on the bed with them, and even sit on their laps. All of these behaviors are indicative of attachment. Some cats are huggable and others are not, but both types of cats can be equally attached to their owners.
