I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

This day in history

March 23, 2007
Stumpy came into our life as a last chance rehab. She was a wild, 6 month old, skinny, frightened, unsocialized, bag of bones.

Stumpy got a piece of birthday cake, after breakfast.

And we saved a piece for Berner boy

Stumpy didn't think that was necessary.

Stumpy hopes, for her barkday, everyone will go BACK over to Ben's blog for a fundraiser update and write in his comment section, "Rescue dogs ROCK!"

Thanks, to Khuzzin Merdie for the heads up!

Brenda, I think that the rescued animals are the most special animals of all! And find a new way to say thanks, each day!

Stella, that's the truth!

Khyra, Rescue dogs DO rock!

K9friend, they absolutely do make the best friends and the most wonderful pets!

Sandra, thanks for the birthday wishes. Stumpy is reluctant to share anything, but easily convinced.

Sprinkles, she WAS a cutie, wasn't she? How could I say no to that face? (I do it all the time, now..ALL THE TIME!!) Thanks for stopping by!

Heelers, She didn't share that cake coz she wanted too... thanks for helping out Ben!
