Foster a Husky!

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

Do you know Taysia Blue Siberian Husky Rescue?  I did not either until I became a part of the Gentle Doctor Animal Hospitals team and got to know their incredible leader Jackie.  This is one of the best rescue groups I have known, with some of the neatest – and of course most beautiful – dogs!

Meet Taysia Blue and the incredible rescue she inspired.

Thankfully, Taysia Blue is happy at home in the family I would want to be a part of were I a Husky!  Meet four other Huskies looking for foster homes…

Are you their foster family?

Do you know someone who might be?

If I had a favorite Husky in the whole wide world, it would be Latte.  She is sweet and gentle and perhaps the prettiest dog I have ever met.

From Jackie:  “Latte needs a permanent foster – we’ll continue to cover her vet care, she just needs a home for the time she has left.”

I also love Celeste.  She put her forehead down to bump heads with me when we met, which you know makes me love a dog forever.  I know you would love her too.

From Jackie:  “Celeste spent 9 or 10 years of her life in a shelter!!! She is 11 and deserves a home.”

Neiko is gorgeous and playful and would love to meet you.

From Jackie:  “Neiko is an active and healthy senior.  He could be a perfect BFF, doesn’t like other dogs.  Husky life span is 15 years, he’s just 10.

And then there is Zeus.  I have not met him, but I hear he is awesome.  Isn’t he gorgeous??

From Jackie:  “What’s not to love??  Zeus cuddles and loves to run and go for walks.”

Please consider fostering one of these four great dogs.  If you know someone who may be able to help, please pass the word along.  Taysia Blue could always use your support, your kind words, your donations and your loving home – for adoption or as a foster home.  Check out their website for more information on these four and the rest of the group.  I promise you will never see more beautiful dogs than these!

Camp Kindness 2012

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

Nebraska Humane Society has several sessions of a week long day camp for Omaha kids every summer.  I speak at the camp a few times a summer, and it is always so much fun.  I will be back this coming Tuesday and also post some actual photos.  My favorite was of the GIANT rat maze Brian had set up.  Fuzzy and Wuzzy Rats would have loved it!

As I am down to only “normal” pets (well, not so much normal as a cat and dogs), I brought Joy the Puppy with me, and she had a great time.  Here are 38 artistic renditions of Joy the Puppy at Camp Kindness.  I think they are all awesome.

(With a photo of Joy the Puppy for comparison)

Hey Camper, thank you for researching my Lab Something puppy!  I bet you are right – she probably does have some Greyhound in her with that long, beautiful nose!

And my favorite letter so far from a camper…

Dear Dr. Finch,

Thank you for coming with Joy and taking time off work.  I enjoyed it.  I want to do four jobs:  vet, work here as an animal control officer, be a dog trainer or work at the zoo.  I don’t know which to choose.  I’m thinking on doing all four…somehow!  And maybe K9 Unit.  But I’m going dogs, cats, horses, etc.  And they’re going to have babies.  Plus, I’m adopting children and NOT getting married!  Husbands are too much work!  Thanks!

from me:

Yeah, but they’re worth it.

Look at me!  I’m Ann Landers! :)

Thank YOU kids and counselors.  I love being a part of Camp Kindness.
