Update From Dale - October 7, 2015

Dear friends,

It's been a long time since I've written an update. Thank you for your patience.

Since the fire, I've been incognito. We are making progress and I'm now coming "out of cognito"! The new kennel is in place! Dogs are comfortable, especially with air conditioning and heat. Each slot has a doggie door and a small run. Dog walkers arrive early AM weekdays, ensuring that our waifs have a nice walk around the farm on very long leads. They love stopping and sniffing. Being dogs they also enjoy rolling in deer droppings. We believe in letting them be dogs. They love it!

Since we have a large securely fenced "play area", many enjoy romping loose as well. We've stepped up by enrolling several dogs in obedience classes once weekly for 6 weeks. A few may graduate to an agility class.

Currently we have some very nice dogs for adoption. Some are JR mixes. We consider ourselves a real rescue and take in those that are truly in need of a loving home. Some have been pulled from kill shelters at the last moment. For me they are hard to resist, having become doomed simply for being a Jack Russell. (A few are other breeds who had a look of utter desperation in their eyes that I couldn't ignore). We rarely get puppies. Others are privately surrendered for reasons including new baby or moving. These dogs come around, thriving on good food and schedules with much love and attention. They desperately want to be "Somebody's Dog". Look for them soon in new postings.

A huge thank you for your ongoing support. Sometime after the fire we had volunteers address envelopes with special cards in memory of our beloved lost dogs. It appears that the "List" became confused and some of you did not receive one. I will happily send one to you if you email this website requesting one. My sincere apologies. I so appreciate your caring.

Happy fall,
Dale
