Supporting women's rights helps families, and strong families allow for more humane communities. On that note, BR's Pit Ed Training classes will be canceled tomorrow so class handlers can attend the historic Women's March(es) happening in our towns. Wishing everyone a safe and fulfilling weekend.

Good Samaritans = Unsung Rescue Heroes

Every community has them: The kindest people who care enough to get involved. The Williams family took "Jess" in when she was lost and have done everything possible to find her family. No luck. We'll be meeting on Jan 29th for a spay, etc. and look forward to thanking them in person for giving her a safe haven. They hope to find her a new home (their...

Smart Adopters Rock

We've been showing dogs this week and are just so impressed with the adoption applicants who take their time and seek out the RIGHT dog for their situation, rather than the dog who looks a certain way or who may not be a match, but who needs a fast home due to shelter deadlines. Saving lives is so important - So is selecting a dog with the personality that fits your...

The best part of knowing Duzi's heart worm treatment is done? We finally get to swing her in the air and rile her up. FUN!

Rattle the cage!

Yes, we have a moral obligation to recognize and oppose social injustice in all its forms. May this be the year that your inner activist finds her voice.

WERE YOU RIGHT? :-)

According to the Wisdom Panel's DNA analysis, Freckles/Reggie - and likely his brothers, too - are a fancy mix of equal parts American Staffordshire Terrier (aka 'pit bull') and Mixed Breed (aka 'I dunno') ... And a smidge of Boston Terrier (aha!) and American Bulldog. Ha!

"What ARE THEY?" You asked. "We don't know," we responded.

Guessing games are fun, and now we have more pieces to the puzzle. Thanks to Freckles-now-Reggie's adopters, we have DNA results. Before we divulge later today, wanna guess? (pictured at 4mos)

Warm sympathies to the Lopez family on the passing of BR 2009 alumna 'Retha.'

"The pain that our family has been going through the past few weeks is unbearable, but it gives us comfort that she is no longer in pain. She was by far the sweetest girl we've ever been privileged to have as a part of our family. She was amazing! No other dog can ever compare." - Claudia Lopez

We know the feeling,...

Uh oh! Historical Chubby? The pit bull type dog in this old world painting has been doing well with table scraps.

How's your dog's figure? Healthy dogs have a nice abdominal tuck and only a slight layer of fat over their ribs. Check here for more info on maintaining your dog's ideal weight. [ Chasingdogtales.com Link ]

We changed his name from Spot to Spock - because, those darn spots went away. You know what? He's my favorite dog in the Rescue Barn right now. He's so unassuming and good natured and he makes the gentlest "Can we snuggle now?" requests when I'm buzzing around doing chores. Spock. He may be a nerd, but he's an awesome little nerd.

Rescue Barn Rainstorm Prep: DONE!

Firewood's chopped & stacked, stove's lit and a fresh layer of straw's been spread on the grounds to minimize the mud-fest we're about to get. We're set, but CA animal shelters will be begging for mercy with higher intakes this coming week, so please consider helping them out with a donation of towels/blankets - And some goodies for weary shelters workers...
