Before president Obama was president he said he would adopt a shelter dog “They are mutts just like me.”
Unfortunately, he broke the promise and accepted the gift of a rare exotic breed that no doubt came from a puppy mill at worst, or a “high class breeder” at best. Instead of adopting a dog from a shelter and saving thousands, if not millions, of lives by their example, they chose to promote puppy mills and mass produced dogs. Well, now that the damage is done, Bo needs a friend. Simon Cowell
of American Idol fame has offered to buy all the food the dog will eat in its lifetime if the Obama’s
rescue a dog from a shelter. You can help out by writing the Obama’s
and encouraging them to make our house, the white house, a multi-doggie
home. Read all about it by clicking here.

The two skinny girls that went to be fostered yesterday arrived safely and are enjoying
their new home. Thank you Sandy for taking such great care of them. Their foster mom says “Both horses seem to have settled in wonderfully well. Both got a good grooming and further ‘make-over’ this morning – manes shortened, hooves painted w/rainmaker, derma
-gel on all of their ‘boo boos’
, swat around eyes and a good wipe down
with fly spray
both really enjoy their carrots and horse cookies as well as their portions of hay three times a day.”
Animal Control came out to visit us today. Yesterday they had talked to Jason and made arrangements to bring out a couple horses that were abandoned. Then Jason promptly forgot about it. Today Tawnee was manning the phone’s and Animal Control called up to say they were on their way. Sure enough, they soon arrived and two beautiful horses were ready to get off the trailer.
They were abandoned in someone’s
pasture, and then the owners of the pasture turned them loose on the road. Animal Control headed out to pick them up and take them to safety. After the required wait to see if the owner would turn up, they brought them here.
enjoyed rolling in the round pen for awhile before going to their temporary pen.
The lady who have a hold on Benji and Gage came out to visit them today. It as decided that Benji was not a good match, but Gage is still tugging at her heart strings.
They also donated a couple bales of hay, thank you so much! It’s something we sure use a lot of around here…
Shortly after they left, we got a phone call “Hi, I’ve got 5 bales of oat hay I would like to bring you.” It seemed to be the hay donation day. They came out and also brought apples and carrots for the horses, which of course Dottie and Macho Man laid claim to immediately
Dottie headed off to roll in the sand. She looks like a round barrel with toothpicks her legs are so short.
After she was done rolling, she used the apples and carrots to transform herself into Dottie the super horse as she galloped around the round pen.
After Dottie was done, Prince and Honey were given use of the round pen. Prince didn’t roll, but he really enjoyed prancing around.
He is growing so fast and is becoming quite the handsome young horse. He really loves people and has no fear. He will walk right up to people and want you to play with him. He definitely
got imprinted with all the handling he received
The visitors were getting ready to leave, so Jason and the lady unloaded the hay. She kept remarking that she had brought her trailer so Dottie and Macho Man could go home with her. Certainly not!
