Our GSD friend Rosie in Columbus, OH bolted from her pet sitter's home yesterday morning. She was seen by animal control, but they couldn't catch her, and at last word, she's not been seen again.

Her momma is frantic and heartbroken, as are Rosie and momma's friends.....if there's anypup in Columbus area, please look at the main picture on my page for more information about Rosie and the search for her.

We're praying big prayers for Rosie's safe return.

we will dearly miss you my sweet were one of my furst furriends here on Dogster and you were always there with encouragement and love and care and FUN! Hugs to your mom and dad who we know are so very sad. Hope you can find Max and Impy there at the will love them.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Kiara is due to have some very serious surgery done on 9/15 to help with a liver shunt and our really good furriend Dorothy Louise has not been feeling well for several days.

We'd sure appreciate our pals crossing their paws for both of these sweet pups and saying a little pawyer if you could.

Raja Babu Interview!

We had a fun interview with mom thought we'd post it in my diary,too. Thank you for interviewing Hunter and me Raju!

RB: You are a puppy mill rescue. Please let us about life as a dog in a puppy mill.

C&H: Thanks for asking about the life in a puppy mill Raja. Life is very hard in a mill....the little girls like me have litter after litter after litter which are yanked away from us way before they should be and sold. We are not fed well, we are usually kept in cages constantly, no matter the heat or the cold. We don't know the feel of kind hands petting us...only the hands of cruelty and pain. We have doors slammed on us the few times we're out of the cage, we don't know the feel of grass beneath our feet. We usually have no idea that humans can be kind and good and when we come from the mill we are usually very scared.

RB: Hunter, how did you come to your furver home? Were you also from a puppy mill.

H: I was a stray found running the streets in Houston, TX. I was stage 3 heartworm positive and Col Potter took me into their care and took care of neutering me and having the heartworms treated. My furever mom and dad now were my foster mom and dad!

RB: How has your life changed since you came to your furever home?

C&H: Cassiee says...I have learned what love and kindness and good food and kind hands are and that humans can be good. Hunter says I know what it is to have humans who care enough to give me heartworm preventative and who give me lots of love and skritches and good food.

RB: Tell us about the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue group? Who is/was Col. Potter?

C&H: Col Potter is a nationwide cairn rescue group which was started in 2001. Col Potter was a cairn dog who was a loved pup owned by a lady who belonged to an AOL board devoted to cairns. Col Potter tragically was hit by a car and the members of the cairn board decided to raise some money and have a star named after Col Potter, and they raised enough for that with money left over, so they decided to try and rescue a cairn and from there Col Potter Cairn Rescue Network began.

RB: How does foster parenting work? How are you selected?

C&H: Col Potter rescues pups from mills, from owner surrender, shelters and each pup goes to a foster home before being adopted. It depends on which part of the country you're in, usually fosters go to foster homes closest to where they are when brought into the Col's care. Foster homes have to fill out applications, have references checked, both personal and vet, and have a home visit just like adoptive families have to. Cassie says...I was brought from a mill in Missouri and was fostered in Texas and adopted out, only to unfortunately be returned to Col Potter by the adoptive family in TX and then my mom and dad fostered and adopted me in December 2005. Hunter says...I was a stray in Houston with heartworms and they were bad enough that I couldn't fly to a foster home, so the Col looked for a foster home for me in the Houston area....and my mom and dad took me on to help me through the treatment...and when I was HW free I became a member of the family.

RB: Tell us about a special incident in your life.

C&H: Cassie says Well, Raja, it took me a long time....but the first time I walked in FRONT of mom and dad on a leash instead of trailing along behind to keep from being kicked (not by them but by my previous mill owner), it brought tears to their eyes...they knew I was beginning to know trust.

Hunter says Raja, I knew how much these humans cared for me from the very beginning and when I even wagged my tail and gave sweet kisses when I felt awful while undergoing HW treatment, they knew I was going to be a member of their family.

RB: Anything else you would like to add for our readers. 

C&H: We would say to everyone, if you're considering adding another dog to your family, please consider getting a rescue pup...there are so very many like us who deserve loving homes.

My Best Fella's CP Namesake has Arrived!

June 1st 2009 11:55 am
[ View A Comments ]

Here's the write-up about him by the CP in-takes lady....I KNOW my sweet Vinny is pleased to have this little bundle of energy as his namesake!

Yesterday Kathy and Barney Hunt attended an auction that had one male Cairn listed, no age, just one male Cairn. This is a "bad" auction house and usually the sellers who frequent this sale have older, health issue dogs they are unloading.

Imagine Kathy and Barney's surprise when a bouncing 3 month old baby was brought out as the one male Cairn!

#3817 Vinny joined the CP family in all his puppy glory! He's been at the Hunt's for less than 24 hours, but Kathy has already shared two stories I have to share with you. In the photos in the album attached is a shot of Vinny with his very adorable belly band on. He's climbing into his bed, but the angle makes it look like he's lifting his leg. Kathy tells me after she put the bellyband on Vinny, he wasn't quite sure what to make of it. He didn't know how to walk or move, then slowly got the hang of it until he came to the bed where he proceeded to take giant strides while trying to get in because of the bellyband on. Then, being a puppy, BUT a Cairn puppy, he decided to hump his bed!! Now this morning, Vinny was out in the Hunt's backyard and heard the neighbor's dog so went trotting over to the fence to investigate ... again Cairn puppy. Only thing he didn't figure on was trying to walk on water! Barney had filled the swimming pool for the resident furkids and that was directly in Vinny's path to the fence, so he just walked right on over the edge of the pool ... until he hit the water and sank up to his neck. Good thing Kathy was there to yank him out! Yes, he is a Cairn puppy!!

Vinny is named in memory of a beloved furkid of friends of Diane Petrofsky through our Name a PM Program. I'm sure CP's Vinny is going to need all the guidance from above he can get!

Now, before you all try offering to foster Vinny, the MM Team is looking for a Foster-to-Adopt home for him and he will be staying with Kathy and Barney until then.

Yo, help me welcome Vinny to the CP family!
