No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does. ~ Christopher Morley



He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. ~ Agnes Repplier


A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. ~ Josh Billings


A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty. ~ John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World’s Worst Dog



Meet Moe!  He’s our new Lab pup, 19 weeks, 26.5 lbs of pure sweetness.  He sure has helped ease the sadness of having to surrender our Boxer rescue.  Looking forward to many years with this sweet boy in our family.



We rescued this sweet boy three months ago.  He had awesome potential.  But he had a hard life.  No impulse control.  Highly reactive.  Terrible leash aggression.  We put our hearts into rehabilitating, but he snapped at me twice and that was more than we could tolerate with a child in the house.  We were forced to surrender him last Sunday, back into foster with our local Boxer rescue.  My heart aches for him.  I pray the rescue people commit to him the way we did.  Help him succeed.  Help him be that dog who lives his awesome potential.  We miss you, Jags!  We will always carry you in our hearts.


Saving one dog will not change the world, but surely for that one dog, the world will change forever. ― Karen Davison


Did you know: Flying in V formation adds at least 71% greater flying range, than if each goose flew alone. When the goose in front gets tired, another goose will take over the front position. Geese will honk to encourage those up front to keep up their speed.
