“Jenkel Boys Pumpkins”

In 2016 the Jenkel family adopted a dog they named Jenks. But the story didn't end there. So here we are, almost six years later, and look what her boys who walk on two legs did yesterday.   We are incredibly grateful that these boys raised enough money to spay or neuter three dogs who [...]

Now this is a beautiful boy and we now know exactly what he is. Midnight is the perfect name for this guy. All that plus a PAWSitive Ending! We love it. It sounds like this family is doing so much right and that Midnight will be a much-loved family member for many, many years.   [...]


1455 Days. And counting.

Maybe it's just me, but the shorter days and colder weather make me sad. Well, maybe not sad, but less happy and joyful. The darkness in any given year is difficult, but as we continue in pandemic mode with all of the losses we've collectively experienced it's really hard.   I don't know how I [...]

Ellie’s a Golden Retriever/Great Pyrenees mix, and she has the best of both breeds-loving, playful, [...]

Stop Digging!

I was walking my dog yesterday and he decided to go and sniff in a yard I had never been on. It's not that far from home, he just never seemed interested. And he decided to keep walking longer than the leash allowed so of course I followed. And stumbled into a hole. I caught [...]
