Elsie was born in a litter I worked with in 2010. She was the last of 7 siblings to be adopted. The right home never came along. Either the applicants didnt have another dog (I couldn’t let her go without a companion dog) or were gone too many consecutive hours during the day. Elsie has some eyes you won’t soon forget. She is so expressive & she is my buddy. She laid by my side as I recovered from cancer in 2011, so of course I couldn’t let her go. She’s my rock!
Minnie was born in 2010. I found her as a baby in my alley late one night returning from work-stray dogs are rare in my neighborhood. I took her in, tried to find owners and then tried finding a new home for her. It never happened so she stayed and became one of my crew. 🙂 I gave her the name Minnie because she looked to be a Minnie-me of Elsie.
Alaska was born 2014. He was rescued from a hoarding situation as a puppy & will always be a fearful dog of strangers unfortunately. He reminded me so much of my Ranger boy(see below), I just couldn’t let him go. He’s my beauty king!
Madee was born in 2014 also. She was one that couldn’t be let go. She’s a beauty! And a sweet cuddler. She had a twin sister who was adopted & Madee was the keeper. She can be a handful but loves her people!
Cloe – 11/96 to 02/22/2010 – Cloe is the light of my life; our bond was and is incredible. This is my first born. Adopted from HART in 1997. This is my big baby girl aka Sister. She is a 60lb. beagle mix. My volunteerism in rescue started right after I Adopted her!
Ranger – I rescued him from the Richardson Animal Shelter. I begged HART to take them into their program and then decided I had to keep him!
Terry – Went to rainbow bridge 11/15/2008 Terry lives forever in my heart and never forgotten. I also rescued her from the Richardson Animal Shelter. I tried for almost 2 years to adopt her out. Rarely does anyone want to adopt the older dogs, so she stayed here with me.
Bruiser – My first foster with Operation Kindness; after he lived at the shelter for a year; I just could not send him back. A face ONLY a mother can love!
Patch – Default by marriage. 🙂
Coco – Last and final foster failure. I rescued her from the Oakcliff Animal Shelter in Dallas. We kept her because Patch actually likes her (He does not like any of my dogs).
