    My Dog Saved My Life

    Wyatt is a medium sized dog.  He is a black and white mixed breed.  I adopted him from a shelter when he was a puppy.  Groomers and vets have told me they suspect he is part schnauzer and part terrier.  He loves to eat any kind of food that comes from a noisy...

    My Best Friend Twinkie ❀

    It had been one year since my dad had died and on his birthday my family and I decided to go to the shelter to get me a dog. I was excited because I've always loved dogs and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen. I walked down all the rows looking at each dog trying to...

    Well, because I have no self control.

    .. I adopted another pitbull today. She's only 3 months old and was found in a crate in someone's basement with two other puppies who didn't make it to the vet. I'm so excited to finally have another rescue puppy. :)

    I found this little sweetie on the side of the

    road today chained up and in horrible condition. Just more reason to spay and neuter your pets ALWAYS. She's going home with me and then we'll start to look for potential adopters once she's back to health. Absolutely disgusting.

    I wish when people buy pets they understand

    that they are breathing creatures that they don't deserve to be treated like they are savages. So with that being said I am extremely disgusted by the Yulin dog festival taking place in China this year. I could never think of seeing my poor baby Thor being boiled or skinned or...

    This year will be our 11th year together

    as a family. She was abused by her previous owners, came into my back yard when I was 10yrs old and never left. I'm 21 now and I don't know how much time we have left, but I'll always love her.

    I took one of my dogs to the park earlier today,

    and someone with her golden retriever (who was growling at my dog) told me to, "Get that vicious beast out of the park before it kills someone". What a sad and uneducated world we live in.
