Kaleesi - Dog Days of Summer bonding on the beach w/ lil'sis My wife and I have shared the roost with Snow the Eleanora Cockatoo a.k.a. "SugarBird" for 20 years; long story short, we found the perfect dog to adopt in 2012 @ East Lake Pet Orphanage. Kaleesi went on vacation with us recently and we think it was her first oceanic adventure. The "Dune-Bunny" a.k.a. Kaleesi is a natural beach puppy and fits right in with our family's lifestyle. Snow is her "new" baby-sis. They love each other as much as we love them :-) Galveston State Park was very nice. About Kaleesi: (some emails from the orphanage) I had heard a wonderful animal rescuer coming to Wine On The Roof (pet charity evint) saw Sugar Cookie/Kaleesi walking on the street. The woman stopped the car and opened the door, and in jumped this desperate animal. Jumping in took this American bulldog's last bit of strength, and her leap of faith saved her life. This good samaritan was unable to get this bag of bones to move from the floor of her car; she had found safety and was not about to budge!!! Upon arrival at East Lake, Sugar Cookie was so named because of her sweetness...despite her horrific condition. (??? details of her condition????) Through several weeks of medical care by the team of East Lake vets, and eventually the loving care of volunteers, Sugar Cookie, learned that the world from which she had come, was not the world in which she was going to face her future Sugar Cookie The woman wad finally able to get Sugar Cookie into the back seat by giving her some cereal.Sugar Cookie was so weak and so scared when she arrived that she couldn't jump out of her rescuer's SUV. Our staff member got her a ramp and a can of food and gradually coaxed her out of the car. In spite of being emaciated, terrified, and obviously in a great amount of discomfort, she was sweet and gentle to her helpers and so her name was born. Once in her run for the night, our staff member sat with her and fed her by hand, ga

Dog Days of Summer This is my miniature dachshund pup, Gracie, who likes to help me with the gardening. I was transplanting an azalea from a box planter to the yard and turned around to discover that Gracie had taken a liking to the empty box planter. I guess cats aren't the only creatures who like empty boxes!She also wasn't happy when I planted something else in that box planter the next day.Regards,Laura Trumble

Unconditional Love We've had Pooh (the larger dog) for about a year when my husband and I decided he needed a buddy, so we rescued Gracie from Operation Kindness about a month ago and it was love at first site. They have been inseparable ever since. They sleep together, play together and eat together. We are so fortunate to have found 2 wonderful animals that love each other as much as we love them.

Well, this day he didnt realize rain was in the forecast, but he said from now on he will pay more attention to the weather forecast! I got such a laugh, if only this dog could talk!
