Well, as you can see, the appearance of our blog has changed. I’ve just finished upgrading to WordPress 2.7, which was astoundingly easy, and then I applied a new template that I found. This template (named Atahualpa, in case you’re curious) is claimed to be incredibly customizable directly from the administrator screens (instead of having [...]
Although Shasta has lived with us for a few months now she hasn’t been introduced either on Petfinder or on this blog yet. But here she is…debuting today in this video. Also in this video are two of the three puppies who’ve come to us recently. The third, Meggie, has already been adopted. Still available, [...]
Experiments. Sometimes they work. Sometimes the lab explodes in a ball of fire.
After whining about how stale this blog has begun to look (to me, that is), I’ve decided that it’s time to put up or shut up.
Starting this weekend, I’m going to start playing around with other templates in hopes of finding something that [...]
Two or three days ago, as I mentioned previously, Jackson came back to us from his temporary foster family. Those of you who know me reasonably well are probably aware that I’m not happy that Jackson came into our program at all. He was one of those dogs who have been presented to us as [...]
This past weekend, Amanda (our petsitter, who’s been helping out while Barbara’s recovering) and I spent most of a day down in the basement working on the warehouse. It was a disaster — we could hardly get to anything and couldn’t find anything unless it was in the tubs on the new shelves. Poor Barbara [...]
It’s only 10:00 in the morning and we’re already up one dog. At about 9:00, a couple and their 3-year old daughter came over to drop off their 7-month old puppy, a tri-color Sheltie named Cole. Their reason: He’s too shy and runs away from their daughter. Well, they’re a nice family, and the daughter [...]
Well, for a few days, since Tzar died, we’ve been down to an even dozen dogs in the house, about as low as we’ve been in over a year. It just couldn’t last, could it?
Since Barbara got back home yesterday afternoon, we’ve learned that Cassie’s coming back to us. Her family’s unhappy that she hasn’t [...]
This evening, our friends and rescue colleagues Cynthia and Marie dropped by with Marie’s puppy Layla (whom she adopted from us when she — the puppy, that is — was named Lucy). Among other things, Marie wanted to finalize the contract for Layla’s adoption, and both of them wanted to meet puppies Shadow and Tessa. [...]
Some weeks back, some of you (OK, one of you) said that you’d like to see some pictures of our sailboat and maybe some pictures of us sailing. Well, that subject’s got little to do with Sheltie rescue (except that it costs approximately the same amount of money), but here goes.
Our sailboat is named Dream [...]
Well, I picked Barbara up at the hospital at about 11:00 this morning, after which we went straight to a pharmacy to pick up some prescriptions for her, then home. She spent a while setting a recliner up in which she plans to sleep (under the theory that sleeping in our waterbed might not be [...]
