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

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Mayzie's Rescue Me Week, Day 5: Veteran's Day

We couldn't let today pass without thanking the veterans of our armed forces and currently serving military personnel who sacrifice so much for the principles that make it possible to live in freedom.

With that in mind,
I'd like to highlight two organizations
that help our service men and women keep their dogs safe while deployed
help to find soldiers' pets foster homes while they serve.

If you can't foster, perhaps you can search craigslist and kijii (ebay classifieds) for soldiers needing homes for their pets due to deployment. When I find a soldiers' pet in need I send them these two websites, with a note of gratitude for their service. I've received some great responses. Many don't know these organizations provide this service.

Today's search turned up
Major and and his sister Fayth

Both dogs are 9 years old and have been together their whole life. Their dad gave them the best of care and all the love one could imagine. Their owner was deployed and there was no place for them to go. He had only hours to find a rescue that could help. With the economy and foreclosures its not easy to be placed these days, especially being Rottweilers. They are big lovable babies in need of a forever home. They do not have to be adopted together but if you have room in your heart and home that would be great.

Major and Fayth are available through Those Left Behind Foundation located In Las Vegas, NV
Both have been spayed/neutered, are current on their vaccinations and have been checked for parasites.

Thanks to Grampa J,
My Dad,
all of our veterans,
those serving now
and the families who love and support them.
Your service and sacrifice is appreciated!

We're still celebrating Mayzie's Grampa's life and love of animals by pawticipating in her

ADOPT! Don't shop!!!

It can be heartbreaking for soldiers to leave a pet behind. So glad that people are willing to foster their pets.

I hope they can find a home together. Rotties are wonderful doggies. I don't know why people are afraid of them.
