Lena came to LBDR from the Amelia County Animal Shelter. She was thought to be frail. But she was hearty and hale! So, no old dogs home for Lena. Thank you Loudon County Animal Services for finding Lena her forever home! ...

I have no shame. I'll post that our entire haul for the first quarter of 2019, from people donating to us using Amazon Smile, was less than $5. BUT I will ask that you remember us in the future. Maybe next quarter we'll get a big $10 check from Amazon! 🙂 Just select us from the list of charity organizations, or type our name in the search engine. We do not have a wish list because most of our cash goes to the vets. ...

Lena was transferred to Loudon County Animal Services yesterday. This is a partner who places our rescue dogs in wonderful homes within days of receiving them. Lena needed this opportunity. She was the youngest resident by far, at the age of nine, give or take six months. She is half the age of the oldest resident of Dot's Really Old Dogs Home. She was alleged to be "in bad shape" when we rescued her. Lena proved to be fun-loving, active, healthy, playful, agile and highly social. She would suffer living in an old dogs home, and we had no adoption applications on her. Lena lived with me for 10 weeks. Yes, I cried. But look at that happy smile on her face! ...

All it takes to make a difference to your local shelter is a dog bed in your house. Or 12. 🙂
Congratulations to Shep's Place, from Dot's Really Old Dogs Home. Very glad to see that a senior sanctuary doesn't have to be huge or palatial to get national attention.

I’ve put the medications away. I’ve washed the bowl and put it away. I’ve washed the bedding. I’ve washed the blood off the floors. At times the mass in his mouth bled, and the droplets looked like paint spatter. In the kitchen, there was a corner where the blood spatter was more concentrated, indicating he had stood there with his head pressed against the cabinets sometime during the night.

I can feel the gentle steady pressure of his head against my leg. He liked to stand pressed against me. I can hear the clicking of his paws as he paces, or walks in circles, or just randomly keeps moving through the house like a school of fish in the shape of a little frail dog. Bullet had brain damage, it was thought to possibly be a brain tumor. I can see his face, he was a beautiful dog with a Shepherd’s saddle, a long bushy tail, his colors such a beautiful array of reds and black. He had solid black eyes and if I stroked the top of his head down to his neck, firmly, his eyes slowly closed and if he were lying next to me, he would drop off to sleep.

Goodbye, Bullet. 12 years on a chain; six months in a shelter, nine weeks in hospice. You never had to be house-trained. All the other dogs loved you and allowed you to bump into them, walk on them while they were sleeping, stick your snout in their food or their water. They did not elbow their way in when mommy was giving you attention. They slept with you. The mass that developed in your mouth required special feeding, and frequent feedings. The other dogs did not riot when they saw you eating and they weren’t. Goodbye, sweet special Bullet. I don’t know what the future holds for you but I know that whatever brain damage you had, it allowed you to find happiness in just about anything. The happiness I saw you having day in and day out brought me the greatest joy.

Rescues and shelters go through a lot of linens. Towels, sheets, blankets, quilts, are always needed, and we thank Stacey Counts, standing with our 95 pound boarder, Little Girl, for three huge bags of linens donated to us today. Little Girl took to Stacey instantly, she knows a good soul when she sees one. I hope to see you again soon, Stacey, I want to meet those Kissable Pits! -- Dot ...
