Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels.

I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.

As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage.

I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today.

Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.

As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past.

I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.

I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her.

Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship.

A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side.

I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes.

I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor.

So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors.

So many more to be saved.

At least I could save one.

I rescued a human today.

Justice for Karley--- True story

This is a story by Karley... Please sign his petitions and help get Justice for Karley.. Post in your diary if possible.......

Hello is my story.

I had been abandoned when Jeff & Shelley Toole found me & gave me a loving home.

I loved my home & my new family. I had everything I could have ever wanted. I even got to go to the was so much fun.
On Nov 3rd. 2008, I got out from my yard. It has been said that the neighbor let me out. Anyway, I escaped & ran to a neighbors house. As this first neighbor was taking me home, a second neighbor came out & said he would return me to my home. Travis, the first neighbor, had a gut feeling that he shouldn't let Johnson, the second neighbor take me but he released me to him anyway. Just as Travis got back to his driveway, he heard me yelp. He turned to see Johnson hitting me with a rock...a 12lb rock. Travis started running back to save me. Just as Travis got to me, Johnson was still hitting me with the rock & trying to pry my mouth open with his hands. The whole time I was wondering.."what did I do to this man?" "Did I potty on his lawn?" "When will he stop beating me?" Well, he didn't stop. He kept hitting me with that rock. Travis was able to distract him for a few seconds so I could stumble away & collapse in the bushes. When I was taken to the ER, I had swelling on my brain, broken jaw, crushed skull & many other injuries. The injuries were so traumatic that the only option my humans had was to release me to the rainbow bridge. The vet said I could be saved but I wouldn't recover from all of the injuries so with a very broken heart, my humans let me go.
The person that did this to me, was an Los Angeles County Asst. Fire Chief. People like that aren't suppose to do things like what he did to me. They are suppose to SAVE people & animals...NOT take their lives. But he took mine & broke the hearts of my humans.
This man who took my life, retired from the FD with his FULL pension. BUT, he has been ordered to stand trial for what he did. My humans had so many people support them & help them. There were times when they didn't think they could go on & fight this person but a friend of my mommie's (who is the person writing my story) made sure she was always there for my humans. When they wanted to give up, she told them NO. She made sure my story reached all over the world. My story is on several doggie sites. She wrote 2 petitions for me.
We go back to Court on July 23rd. On this day, we are hoping to hear that a trial date has been set. Meanwhile, my humans moved away from that awful man. If you would like to read more about my story, please

I took a big step into agility today! I was an extremaly good student according to mommy. I did the tunnel on command and jumped over the high jump on command too. And I was paying close attention so mama actullay could teach me the pause box. I did great! I haven't started on the weave poles yet; I'm not supposed to start until I'm 1 year and my growth plates have closed but mama thinks that a little teaching of it won't hurt. Just not heavy training. Okay so I wanted to impress mama by doing the high jump all by myself. Without her guidence I did it to close. I didn't get all the way over. The bar fell. SNAP!! The pole broke. Mama is fixing it with hot glue right now. Well I want to go see if mama's done. Bye bye! Bark at ya later! P.S. Check out my new website!!!

Okay so mama clicked on the big Dogster for the love of dog on the top to go to the homepage and while it was loading two cats poked out of the left side of the screen. They had talking bubbles but mom was to surprised to read them. Has this happened to anyone else? If it has what are the cats saying? And WHY isn't it dogs instead of cats? Dogs rule, cats droollll!!!!! Okay so what dogs drool? I can't help it! It just falls out!! Mama calls me a problem puppy..... Ohhhh noooo. So plz comment! Mama wants to know what the kitties said. She thinks she say the name Clyde somewhere in the bubble though....


Okay so I'm going through a phase... Doesn't every dog?

Okay so I'm going through a phase... Doesn't every dog? Here's a little song to describe the phase:

Mama had a little pup,
Little pup, little pup,
Mama had a little pup,
Its fur was black as coal

Everywhere that Mama went,
Mama went, Mama went,
Everywhere that Mama went
The pup was sure to go

It followed her to school one day
School one day, school one day
It followed her to school one day
Which was against the rules.

It made the children laugh and play,
Laugh and play, laugh and play,
It made the children laugh and play
To see a pup at school

And so the teacher turned it out,
Turned it out, turned it out,
And so the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near

And waited patiently about,
Patiently about, patiently about,
And waited patiently about
Till Mama did appear

"Why does the pup love Mama so?"
Love Mama so? Love Mama so?
"Why does the pup love Mama so?"
The eager children cry

"Why, Mama loves the pup, you know."
The pup, you know, the pup, you know,
"Why, Mama loves the pup, you know."
The teacher did reply

Yeah yeah yeah so I follow her everywhere and if she locks me out she hears....... BAM!!! Whimper..... THUMP!!! Sigh.... The bam is me jumping against the door then whimpering then the thump is me laying down against the door then sighing. Sooo doesn't every dog go through this stage? Just wondering...........................

Sampson, the faithful dog (Right? That's what ya call it!)

Irish blessing to friends

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers-
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours-
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through.

Hi everyfur! Well on Sunday I won't be a very happy fur... Okay so that's not all true. I do love the people at the vet and Frisbee will be with me and theu will give me a walk each day (not Frisbee, haha! He's so small grandmama didn't pay for him), and food and water, they'll let me out, and I do have a run Frisbee does too, so it won't be all bad. So you wonder what mama's doing? Going on vacation. She's going camping with the fam in Georgia. For a whole WEEK. And she's sad about it cuz they leave on Sunday and that's the day sum childhood friends are coming back to her church. They moved to Washington. They come back every year though. For two weeks. Well anyway after camping comes the really really fun part. Six flags over Georgia! Pawsum huh? I wish I could could cum camping but mama told me they go out a lot in the day to play in the city so I'd be alone a lot and when they went to six flags I'd have to stay in the boarding thing there in a VERY small kennel. GRRR so the vet for me... Mama says maybe next year when I'm more mature maybe we can not go out as much and we will get a hotel that allows dogs to stay in when we go to six flags. Yeah right I don't even know if there will be any hotels that allow dogs there! GRRR I wish I was a person.... Oh well I gotta go sorry pups. Wags & kisses!
