English Shepherds and Pugs in Montana Need Help

My BFF Ayla is an English Shepherd and she alerted me to a horrible situation in Montana. A kennel had 300 neglected English Shepherds and Pugs. Some are puppies and many of the females are pregnant. They are being cared for by a veterinarian and lots of volunteers. You can read about it at the National English Shepherd Rescue site and there are links to newspaper articles about the situation.

It is a shocking story but something that happens all too often. People start with a few dogs and think they are going to make money from them. In a short time they have more dogs than they know what to do with and then they can't or won't take care of them properly. The dogs are the ones that suffer. I am a peaceful dog but stories like this make me want to bite someone.

All of us dogs with blogs are so lucky that we have people who care for us. I was lucky to be born to a great mom and my breeder took wonderful care of me and my sibs. Then I came to live with my special person. Ayla was in a shelter but she eventually was adopted by her special person and has a great life. I know that many of you had tough starts in life but you now are in terrific homes. We should all be very thankful that we were not born in Shady Lane Kennels in Montana!

Niamh -

Thank you for helping me realize how lucky I am.

Dear Niamh,
Thank you for posting the story about the neglected dogs in Montana on your blog.

Those dogs were in a horrible situation, and Montana is so cold in the winter. We are very lucky to have loving people who care so much for us. I hope all those dogs find good people to give them loving homes.

Your friend, Ayla

What a terrible situation! People don't realize that so many dogs (like me) that come from those sorts of situations will never be able to have a normal life due to the emotional scars they cause. Dogs are not THINGS to be HAD! Grrrrrowl.

On another note~ Thanks to your human for answering our mom's question. We get some pretty sweet bum scritches whenever we do our stretchy bows. Totally awesome. But what I want to know is what kind of body language to I have to do to make my people play by MY cheesy-doling rules?

Last note: Big Pupi had his first day of real therapy work today. He was AMAZING! He shall write about it soon! Thanks again for all of your human's help with that!

Too many dogs come from situations like this ... and it is so hard for good people to overcome all the bad things that these dogs experienced. Dog rescue organizations do incredible work, fixing the wrongs of a few terrible humans!

Hi Niamh! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to meet you! I'm so glad caring people are helping those poor doggies in Montana - it breaks my heart when I hear of pooches being mistreated.

Your pal,

Oh no! I can't stand it when dawgs are neglected. Do you know Dino? If you don't click on the link on my blog. A friend of Dino's found a poor abused and starved Pug awhile back and saved the little guy from certain death. There are before and after pictures and it's amazing. You wouldn't even think it's the same dawg!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.

Continued use of Propecia is required in order to keep any gains that have been made in terms of hair regrowth. Lesser results were observed on the rest of the head with some success of regrowth at the hairline, but very little regrowth in the temple area.
