A Velveteen Senior

This was written about a stuffed rabbit. It's a beloved story that can be applied to our senior dogs. When you adopt a senior dog people might ask you why. Why not get a dog who you can have with you for the next ten or twelve or more years? Why fall in love with [...]

Dogs are Love

Not that we need any reasons to love our dogs, but we have so many dogs out there who are going to be awesome companions, therapists, exercise coaches, and more if anyone gives them a chance. When we went to NEW PAWSibilities to find a dog we looked at bigger dogs and friskier dogs and [...]

Writing and posting bios on transport day is exhausting but fun. The fun part is imaging who will get each dog, how much that dog will come to mean to their families. The right dog in the right home is a perfect picture of love. After a long, long day it's fun getting pictures of [...]


Did You Miss Me?

The battle has reached a new level. Did you know that dogs are smart? And conniving and that they don't forget anything? Not the neighbor who puts out bread for the birds, not the chicken bone he saw a week ago and insists is still there and just for him, and not the one time [...]

It’s Not Small Stuff

My dog got hurt on Tuesday. The why and the how don’t matter as much as that he’s going to be fine in a couple of weeks. There’s no one to blame, though the scared part of me really wanted to blame my husband. He got hurt because things happen that you can’t anticipate no [...]
