Rescue Profile 1

No snappy titles for this one. This is going to be a weekly feature-profiling dogs that are looking for responsible, loving homes.

This little fellow is a young Yorkie Mix, around 5 pounds. He is current on all shots except rabies, (he's under 6 months old).

Contact Information:
Elene Olah, Owner & Operator
Oklahoma City Animal Rescue
Oklahoma City, OK (Near Tinker AFB)

Look at that face! I'm seeing a future agility champion or therapy dog-or just somebody's best friend. What I don't see is a toy, a passing fad to dress up or a dog that should ever be left alone in the backyard.

I am not affiliated with this rescue group-I just wanted to put out a photo/profile of a really neat dog in hopes someone would see it.

Sanity Reigns

I don't have time/energy for another dog. Despite what Daddy thinks-I do have plenty of space. But my travel schedule for the end of the year isn't conducive to a young pup's social development. Greta has blossomed with my travel, Cody has gotten begrudingly better. He is steadfast in his committment that he will only love me. Prissy backslides every time I travel.

I've got to get beyond the dialogue that all the moving, etc. is confusing to her and get back to the mindset that she just has to behave.

And, Dottie is aging. She doesn't need the disruption of another young dog in her life-she has plenty to do bossing the three she has. I am afraid this sudden interest in a young dog has to do with a premonition that soon there will be another empty space in our pack.

Dotty started out like Prissy-more of a pain than a blessing. But she blossomed into one of the greatest loves of my life. So much so, I once said "If Dottie died, I'd just have to go with her."....and truly, at that moment, I meant it. That's a lot of pressure to put on one little 3 pound dog.

I see it a lot-people make their little dogs the single center of their life. Industries are built on clothes and crap (yes I have them too) that the dog doesn't need or care about. I really like my new vet, they don't push the extras, they push the basics. Feed your dog well, vaccinate him as needed, and bring him in if he's hurt...THEN buy cute clothes.

Not a rescue, but a distant Dottie relative. I got accused of being a hoarder and breaking the law (by my parents). The same parents who almost wept with joy at seeing Prissy...but I don't think now is the time.

Yay Little Dog

This is pretty cute in light of the last blog entry.

The poidogz will be home tomorrow, the cat is taking full advantage of her "only furry" status. When Mom and Dad picked me up at the airport my eyes did water when I remembered that Dolly wasn't going to be in the car. She was always the official airport greeter. Run free little girl.

I cherish those little "visits" from the ones who have left us. If we hadn't loved them so we wouldn't think of them later, after they have gone.
