Sorry I haven’t been around. I do so appreciate my blogging friends.
I have been looking for a lost dog for the past soon to be three weeks now. My daughter and a friend brought a Great Dane to my house who had been sorely neglected. They brought her in the middle of the night which was the first mistake. I made the sweetie a good nutritious meal, sat and petted her, telling what a wonderful new life she would have with a loving, caring new family. I went inside to get my pillow so I could sleep by the backdoor with her and when I did she jumped the fence and ran away! That was the second mistake, thinking she would just stay there. I was scared to bring her in the house with my dogs so I didn’t.
The strange thing is I had a little warning that things were not going to right. When my daughter’s friend drove off the dog was sitting at the gate. She would look at me then at the road. I could hear what she was thinking. I really could. It was such an odd moment. She was saying, “Where is my Bobby”?, “Where did he go”? I called her to the porch and she laid down as I petted her and talked sweetly to her but I guess she didn’t believe me. Of course she was confused, scared and sad.
She was brought from a place about an hour away. They let her run loose and didn’t pay her any attention, neglected her and just were not nice to her at all. She was so thin I really was shocked by how bad she looked.
My daughter, her friend and I have walked and walked and driven countless hours looking for her day and night. And I do mean day and night. There is a huge green space here where she has been seen. We have walked so many trails. People have ridden horses. We have sat out with KFC. We have put out about 60 flyers which isn’t nearly enough. I have 3 very large signs posted. I have talked to hundreds of people. She is on craigslist and facebook. The police are looking out for her. Every worker at the greenway. Vet’s offices know. But she is used to roaming so I hope she is still alive.
I was able to reunite one family with their dog when I saw they had an ad on craigslist and I had seen the dog on an animal control site. Yeah!! That really made my day.
As soon as I find her I will gather all of my notes and tips to write about. I have even spoken with a pet detective and there are several Great Dane rescue groups looking as they have time. My neighbor has helped a lot.
I never knew I could walk this much. Normally it would have been disastrous on my joints but they have held up very well. I wish I could have written a little bit every day of my adventures but I was always exhausted. Yesterday and today are the first days that I have not gone beyond my neighborhood looking for her.
Her name is Lady. She is just sking and bones. Mostly black. Sad eyes. Please pray for her.
130 Mexican prisoners escape from prison on the Mexican/US border using a tunnel. This comment from Yahoo user Marty is the reason I am posting this. I vote for Marty for president!

The facts: If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor. If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely. If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot. If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed. If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again. If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed. If you cross the Mexican borders illegally you will jailed for two years. If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot. These are laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO – 1.There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools. 2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language. 3. All government business will be conducted in our language. 4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how long they are here. 5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office. 6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any burden will be deported. 7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage. 8. If foreigners come here and buy land, options will be restricted. Certain parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born into this country. 9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. These will lead to deportation. 10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted &, when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets will be taken from you. Now, how can we get these laws to be America’s immigration laws? If you cross the United States border illegally you get – 1 – A job 2 – A driver’s license 3 – A Social Security card 4 – Welfare 5 – Food stamps 6 – Credit cards 7 – Subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house 8 – Free education 9 – Free health care 10 – A lobbyist in Washington 11 – Billions of dollars in public documents printed in your language 12 – Millions of servicemen and women who are willing to – and do – die for your right to the ways and means of our Constitution 13 – And the right to carry the flag of your country – the one you walked out on – while you call America racist and protest that you don’t get enough respect.
Pass this around.
Look at the pictures on this page. There are new ones every single day. This is the reason that dog and cat breeding should be severely limited and licensed. There are far too many animals that people get and then realize they don’t really want them and this happens to them. Yes some of these animals are honestly lost. And a lot of those will never make it back home and will die a horrible death at the pound. The pounds and shelters are over flowing with these sad, pitiful animals. This is where you should get a pet not from a breeder. Do something good instead of greedy.
Hobby Lobby the nationwide Christian based hobby store is now forced to provide the morning after pill that goes against their religious beliefs, through their insurance program. This is not freedom. This is not American. If you go to work for a company such as this you probably are a Christian and hold the same beliefs as the company. Yet again another freedom taken away.
My friend had just the parked the car in an odd parking spot that wasn’t really a parking spot, we got out and then he started screaming, “oh my god, oh my god.” Just before that I had heard an odd noise but it was rush hour and we were at a gas station so it didn’t register with me.
The odd noise was a man on a moped getting run over by a mail truck. Not a little jeep but a truck. My friend saw him go under all four tires.
We ran out too him and I will never forget the look on his face. Sheer confusion and shock. It was so awful. Blood was coming from his nose, I think. Somewhere on his face. Maybe his hand. No where else on his body.
He was on his side struggling to hold his head up off of the road so I reached down to hold it for him and everyone screamed for me not to touch him. I did anyway because that seemed very cruel not to help him. Finally after I asked the guys who had gathered around to give me a shirt a young man took his off and put it under the man’s head. I went into the gas station to wash my hand off.
I could just imagine this man’s pain. It must have been awful. He didn’t have a broken neck though because he kept moving his head around even though we told him not too. I’m sure he couldn’t help it. He was able to state what day it was and his name so he that was a good sign, for the moment anyway. One of the guys there was an off duty paramedic I think, so he was doing what he could to help. Which wasn’t really much except to talk to him and tell he would be ok.
So now I have a sight to go with the dreadful sound. I almost get sick every time I see it in my head.
With it happening on 9/11 I couldn’t help but think about what all of those people at the Twin Towers went through. The horror would have been paralyzing. How have they managed to move on?
I felt so bad for my friend whom I was with, it’s not the first time he has witnessed something like this.
I have no idea how the man who was is doing. It might be difficult to find out with all of the patient privacy acts in place now.
I know that I could never ever be a paramedic because I was panicked and crying like it was someone I knew. I hope I never anything like that again.
please rebog and facebook this also!
The more eye looking and ears listening the better for her.
and try as hard as I can to find their owners. The story below is copied from a listing of animal control offices. It is not my story.
ADOPT BUT NEVER DROP ANY PET OFF THERE PLEASE!!!
DO NOT TAKE ANIMALS HERE EVER. – – 2010-06-10
KILLED MY DOG. DENIED HE WAS THERE FOR 3 DAYS. Finally admitted they killed him as soon as he arrived. Claimed he has a broken back. BS!!! It was a senior dog with arthritis causing a curve in spine. AND they had my phone number I called SUN, MON, TUES, WED……they denied he was there. I could have taken him to MY vet. He was not their property!!!! HE WAS MY BEST FRIEND and LOVED DEARLY!! The girl who took him there thought she was doing me a favor so I could easily find him. That was not the case. They ignored my messages leaving information on Sunday and denied he was there for 3 more days. This should be CRIME. Have you ever seen video of what they do to animals???
Watch this before you ever take an animal there.
Anyone who can watch that without wanting the throw up is not human, let alone HUMANE!!
Have you ever seen what an entire industrial dump truck full of dead cats and dogs looks like? I have and it was at THAT SPCA when I had volunteered there. Also freezers full of dead cats.
I’m not some PETA enviro whack job either. I am a concerned citizen for living, feeling, creators who have no voice for themselves.
DO NOT have any animal piced up by animal control or the police or drop an animal at the SPCA. It is a hell on earth and a slaughter house.
May they answer to their god for murdering my dog in cold blood as soon he arrived and then LIED over and over.
I WILL EXPOSE YOU SPCA!!!!!! My best friend’s death will NOT be in vain. People need to understand exactly what you are and it is any BUT humane.
This is part of the reason I have searching like a mad woman for the last few days for very sick and abused Great Dane who is lost. She was brought to my house to stay for one night before going to a foster home. She jumped the fence and ran off when I turned my head for just a minute.
She had been so abused that I don’t think she knew what to do with someone treating her nicely. She is skin and bones. I have never seen a dog like that before. Her spirit seemed dead.
So if you live in SC and see a black Great Dane with a white neck and feet who is nothing but bones please get in touch with me through the blog. I don’t have photo because she wasn’t here long enough to for me to take one. She is very gentle.
John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives deliberately screwed with the President of the Untied States. Too many people are forgetting that we are The United States Of America and the only way to get things done is by working together! Not by acting like selfish children. Boehner’s behavior is deplorable. He should be run out-of-office.
It is high time for the adults who run our country to start behaving as they should thereby setting the proper example for the children of America.
