Chicago Dog Walk

May 23, 2010

OMD!  It was sooo much fun!

This is what happened:  My friend Cosmo was coming over to Chicago all the way from Atlanta to spend Mother’s Day with his grandma.  He had the B.R.I.L.L.I.A.N.T idea to ask if any of his Twitter friends in the Chicago area would want to meet with him!

We had so many respond, but being that it was Mother’s Day and some had other plans, only four of us were able to meet:  Sid, Bosco‘s sister Ginger, Cosmo and I.  We rendezvoused by Lake Michigan and had the bestest of times, as you will see:

Now I look forward to other meet-ups and hopefully seeing videos of more Twitter anipal friends meet-ups  all over the world!



Pilots-N-Paws: Rescued Dogs Fly To Freedom!

September 12, 2009

Hi Everyone!

September 12th to the 20th will be a week 5,000 of my fellow dogs will always remember!   For one, they will be flying in an airplane–most likely for the first time–but most importantly, it will be their flight to freedom.

Rommel And His Pilot Patrick

Debi Boies is the co-founder of Pilots-N-Paws, a group of dedicated animal lover pilots who volunteer to fly dogs who are facing imminent demise to loving homes and no-kill shelters.  In an interview with Kate Snow of Good Morning America, Debi Boies said Pilots-N-Paws hopes to fly 5,000 animals this week.  The average trip costs about $2,000 per dog, but it’s tax deductible.  5,000 animals and a million smiles!

Pilots-N-Paws has already rescued thousands of animals.  Their stories are told in three incredible photo albums:  Album 1, Album 2, and Album 3.  Rommel’s voyage, “Saving Rommel,”  was also documented on YouTube and it’s worth watching!

So, if you don’t have an airplane and can’t volunteer for this outstanding mission, take your bike, take your car, the bus, or simply your feet.  There are many of us who would love a home today.  You have to take the first step.

Every Rescued Dog Has A Tale

August 30, 2009

Hi Everyone!

About a week ago I started twittering. It’s a lot of fun and I’ve already made some very good friends. It’s really interesting to hear about the daily lives of my fellow dogs (and cats and other creatures), especially their deep thoughts and funny jokes.

One of my new friends, Wookie, is the dog of author Deb Eades, who has written a beautiful collection of anectdotes about rescued dogs: “Every Rescued Dog Has A Tale: Stories From The Dog Rescue Railroad.” All proceeds from the sale of her book are donated to rescue shelters. That is so awesome!

I have found that many of my new Twitter friends are rescue dogs, too. We are all born to love and to be loved…and all we want is a loving home.

Here’s to all of those, who are still waiting.  May your wish of a happy home soon come true!
