RIP Sir Fergus Of Bravo

It is with a heavy heart that we announce we had to say good-bye to Fergus on August 1st.   Fergus was struggling with heart failure and had also recently been diagnosed with renal failure.  The two are difficult to treat together at best and Fergus fought hard until he was just too tired. For thoseContinue reading “RIP Sir Fergus Of Bravo”

Ella’s Lead Collar And Leash Review

So a while ago (ahem) I ordered a couple of items from Ella’s Lead.  I saw a Walker Bait collar on Facebook and just knew that I had to have one for Minnie.   If the ZA actually happens, Minnie is just wily enough to not only survive, but thrive.   Just like Glenn in The WalkingContinue reading “Ella’s Lead Collar And Leash Review”

Sir Fergus Of Bravo Update!

It’s been a while since we’ve had an update on Fergus.  I can say he’s doing so amazingly well that I can’t even believe it.   He’s settled right into our household like he’s been here for years.  His eye is looking so much better, his fur is literally soft and supple and his mobility hasContinue reading “Sir Fergus Of Bravo Update!”

Sir Fergus Of Bravo

I guess it’s time to formally introduce my newest foster, Sir Fergus Of Bravo.  On 2/28/12  Fergus was found by a nice lady in Oregon after he wandered down her long driveway and tried to cuddle up next to her house.   Can you imagine stepping out of your house and finding this poor lost andContinue reading “Sir Fergus Of Bravo”

Dash The Wonder Puppy Update

I thought I should give an update on Dash as his journey has been a long and difficult one. Dash continued to get better and was adopted by a really nice family at the end of February. Although being healthy when he left he didn’t do well in his new home. He had several tripsContinue reading “Dash The Wonder Puppy Update”

Ella’s Lead Custom Leashes

I guess I never realized how picky I’ve gotten about leashes. They’re either too long or short, the fabric gives you leash burns on your hands, the clips suck or they’re just plain ugly. Granted in my line of work I use leashes all day long. I’ve been moaning and groaning about not finding theContinue reading “Ella’s Lead Custom Leashes”

Dasher, The Most Famous Reindog Of All!

First of all I should mention that I don’t foster puppies.   They are messy and smelly and chew things they aren’t supposed to.  I like fostering elderly dogs and the young adults that just need someone to show them what’s acceptable and what isn’t.   A little boot camp, ya know?    You should also know thatContinue reading “Dasher, The Most Famous Reindog Of All!”

Truffles Update

Sometimes doing dog rescue can be really, really hard….soul crushing even. Then something like this is delivered into my inbox and I get the warm and fuzzies and renewed inspiration to keep going. A little bit of history; Truffles wandered into a yard of a DRAW volunteer and in her area Pit Bulls have noContinue reading “Truffles Update”

Carina, DRAW and AFF

There’s been some recent drama regarding a local Washington dog rescue organization.  The founder of Animals First Foundation (AFF), Carina Borja, has pled guilty to nine counts of first degree theft to the tune of $530,000 and is awaiting sentencing.    Unfortunately my rescue partner and co-founder of Dog Rescue Around Washington (DRAW) shares the nameContinue reading “Carina, DRAW and AFF”
