I Rescued a Human Today

A very good friend of mine posted this and was kind enough to let me put it in my diary....

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering

Please Help Molly

I found this very sad story in forums:


Last weekend there was a story about a dog named Molly. Molly's owners thought that the dog was sick with cancer and took a hammer and hit Molly over the head. Molly was still alive. They then took her to the backyard and buried her up to her head in the ground. They then took 2 pillows and put them over Molly's head and put a log on her head. They did this because they didn't want blood all over the yard. The owners then went out to dinner.

Today the owners have apologized because of the public outcry on the abuse towards Molly. Molly was a beautiful yellow lab. Unfortunately the Humane Society had to euthanize Molly because she was in such pain and bad shape. The neighbors could hear Molly cry when she was buried in the ground and they called the police and removed the log while waiting for help to arrive.

Washington County District Attorney's office is looking into this case. We need your help to contact the DA's office and pressure them to fully prosecute these people for their horrible actions against Molly. We'd love to have people from all over the country call and let them know they heard about this story and that something needs to be done.

I have posted a link to the article below as well as the contact information for the Washington County DA's office.

Please give them a call today, for Molly.

Thank you

Buried Treasure Update

Well, summer is coming to an end and I have to say that I'm less than thrilled about it. Mostly because of the fact that my search for buried treasure was fruitless this year! Oh, sure...I found the normal large sticks and logs, but have yet to find that one prized possession:( Oh well, there is always next year!
Mom hurt her finger on Sunday. Dad and his friend Roger decided to have a race with their golf carts and mom was holding on to the side handle. Well, the saying goes that rubbin' is racin' and that's exactly what happened - dad and Roger bumped and moms pinky finger got smashed right in the middle of them! She's OK - it's not broken or anything - just really swollen and bruised.

Mom and dad are back!!!

Yipee! Mom and dad got back from vacation today! I was so happy to see them, but after I got all excited that they were home I remembered that I was mad at them so I snubbed them for a while. I also didn't eat more than one dish of food the whole time they were gone!
She did make it up to us though. She brought back a whole gift basket that Sunni, Porter, Morgan, Cody, Snowball and Sara's mom sent home for us! It had stuffed squeaky toys - which we promptly desqueaked and destuffed - and there were squeaky tennis balls and LOTS of treats! Thanks y'all, we loved everything! I haven't stopped squeaking the tennis balls in a couple of hours - BOL!
On their way home from TN they stopped in Chicago and saw some friends too. They have a 8 month old bulldog pup and their neighbor has a young lab/pit/beagle mix so they came home with all KINDS of different smells on them and in the luggage that they took and our noses went nuts for quite a while after they got home.

Vacation without US!?

August 19th 2008 11:01 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Well, I don't know exactly who my pawrents think they are but they are going on vacation to TN without US!!! Can you even believe it! And, to top it all off, they are going to meet Sunni, Porter, Sara and their whole family....without US!
They are TRYING to convince us that it's in our best interest to stay home because it's a really long drive and they are going to be too busy to give us the amount of attention that we demand, but we aren't buying that!
So, to pay them back for leaving us at home with our Aunt Kim I've been waking Dad up at about 3am - 330am for the past couple of nights acting like I have to go potty. Then, just as he gets to the steps I turn around and run to the bed, jump up on mom to wake her up and then won't leave them alone trying to get them to play with me! HAHAHAHAHAHA...that'll teach them to leave US home when they are gonna go away and have a great time!

Well, we can all rest a bit easier tonight knowing the city of Denver will be safer. A sweet boy named Coco will be killed first thing tomorrow morning! Don't you feel better already? See Coco was raised with his family, loved, and cared for. His grievous crime was to look like a pit bull, whether or not he actually was. We tried everything possible to stop the City from killing him to no avail.

One of his owners went down to the shelter to say goodbye to him and this one woman who worked there wouldn't let him go back to pat his head and say goodbye. After many phone calls and drama, we finally got him back to his dog's side one last time. Thank heavens for the shelter volunteers who have taken care of him and the other dogs on "Pit Row." If the world was right, you'd be kings and queens!

So...Denver area residents, sleep well tonight knowing that this great city that is hosting the Democratic National Convention in a few weeks is doing its diligent duty in keeping the public safe by taking innocent, loved, family dogs from their homes and killing them!

Denver Family Loses Effort to Save Beloved Companion; Memorial Gathering at Denver Dog Pound Planned

On August 5, 2008, a hearing officer employed by the city of Denver deemed "Coco," the beloved compan ion of Desiree Arnold and family, a "pit bull" under the city's pit bull extermination law. Doug Kelley, director of the Animal Control and Care Division for the city of Denver, has refused requests to allow Coco to be removed from Denver and to be taken in by another loving family. Kelley insists that Coco must die. Ms. Arnold expects Coco to be killed today.

Ms. Arnold and others will gather at the Municipal Animal Shelter at 678 S. Jason Street at 4:00 p.m. today to hold a brief memorial for Coco.

Coco, and his family, are the most recent victims of Denver's cruel and ineffective ban on so-called "pit bull" dogs. "This law is about as rational as confiscating everyone's SUV because some people use the vehicles for drug trafficking or other illicit purposes, "said Arnold's attorney, Karen Breslin.
/o:p>
"It's hard to know what to think of the Mayor's opposition to impounding vehicles owned by people who lack drivers licenses and his tacit support of a law that kills innocent dogs entirely because of how they look. The city pretends this law enhances public safety but that assessment is refuted by the state of Colorado, the National Association of Animal Control officers, the American Veterinary Medical Association and other groups," Breslin said. "If you love dogs you should be outraged at the city's wanton destruction of innocent animals, and you should learn about "the pit bull issue" and discover for yourself that these laws are cruel and stupid."

Coco was deemed a prohibited animal even though Animal Control Officers agreed that Coco possessed only 11 of 27 traits city officials have identified as "pit bull" traits, apparently using outdated breed standards. The ordinance states that a dog is prohibited only if it is an American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier or Amer ican Pit Bull Terrier or if it possesses the majority of attributes of one or more of the three breeds, or possesses "the distinguishing characteristics" that "substantially conform to" the breed standards. Coco was not identified as a purebred dog and was considered a mixed breed dog by two of 3 animal control officers.

In a related development, an attorney for the American Kennel Club last week entered an appearance on behalf of plaintiffs challenging the constitutionality of Denver's ban whose case is now on appeal before the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. The opening brief in that appeal was filed July 30.

Breslin has also asked city officials to release another dog named Forrest, who was seized a second time in Denver but whose owner, Chris McGahey, is a resident of unincorporated Adams County. Forrest's hearing is scheduled for Aug. 13 at 9:00 a.m. at the Municipal Animal Shelter.

Scents and Lumps

Well...Shadow and my pages smell SOOOO good! Thanks to all of our wonderful pals for all of the wonderful smelling collars! Also, thanks to HQ for giving us all the opportunity to show us how special all of our pals are!

Yesterday mom noticed a hard bump on the side of my head next to my eye. It was about as big around as a pencil eraser and hard as a rock. Today when she looked at it, it was bigger and bleeding. Dad cleaned it up with a wet towel and found a little puss and blood coming out of it. So, of coarse mom is FREAKING out! She is such a worry wart! Now she says that she is going to have to call the vet tomorrow to see what they say about it.

We would like to thank Sunni, Nallah and Quigley for the information they have provided and we will keep you all updated!

Update on the hunt for buried treasure!

July 18th 2008 6:31 am
[ Leave A Comment ]

Well...we've been swimming every weekend and I have found many things that have made my tail wag!

A couple of weekends ago I found this hard shell thing and I wasn't sure what it was. I took it to mom and she said it was a CLAM! I tried to bury it in the sand but they made me put back in the water.

Then I found a HUGE stick! It was almost as heavy as me...dad said it was so heavy because it's been soaking in the water for a long time. I was having a GREAT time watching them try to throw it for me - BOL! They would throw it and it would sink so I got to search for it all over again!

Mom has been real busy making up a spreadsheet for BSL laws all over the USA! She's been doing LOTS of research on the internet and has finally completed it. It's almost 3000 rows long - how sad is that:(

That's about all for now...talk to ya all later!
