Many years ago, Megan fostered Nat King Cole and Brenda Lee for us.  Two gorgeous dogs that we rescued from Craig’s List (I think).  It was Christmas time, hence their names! They were adopted by Robert and Vicki Guth, and renamed Bourdeaux and Nanette!  For many years, they sent me updates that made us feel […]

Darla~RIP

You may have seen us last week begging for donations to rescue three collie pups from Athens, Alabama.  The shelter described them as a bag of bones, and even wondered if they would make it.

Big George-RIP

George is a purebred, papered Border Collie. He was adopted by a local rescue (un-neutered) last year, but his owners have serious allergies, and regretfully have to give him up.
