Seems Like A Long Time Ago!!

A Special Thank you!!

A very special ,and heat felt, thank you goes out to all the Foster Homes and their familys who so graciously opened their hearts, and their homes to these wonderful dogs.

A quote taken from Gimli's (aka Jesse James) blog

"You gave me the best gift of all, a heart, that now knows love, and a family of my very own,....
Thank you,... from the bottom of me Setterly Heart,..

Still Amazed,..

I am still amazed at the way this little rescue, in Illinois, and her affiliates, came in, and did what they said they set out to do.

First off ,to insure the safety and well being of these Bird Dogs in need , then the rehabilitaion and healing began.

Not knowing if these dogs might carry some kind of weird parasite, or have behavioral issues that couldn't be reversed,. who knew for sure, that this would have a happy ending?
Stories such as this happen all the time in Rescue,....but how many do you know of , that turn out like the "Boat Mountain" ,aka "Hobbit" story?

Looking back,...

Looking back , that morning when I happen to be reading through my bulk mail on yahoo, I read:

Bird Dogs In Need Of Help!

Lisa, myself, and a few other "Pointer/Setter" rescue folks were were included as the news was sent out. It wasn't until we were able to gather the photos, and put them together, for the public, did it really sink in what had happened,....

Gimli!! aka Jesse James

To all my friends at Illinois Bird Dog Rescue, and to Brenda, down in Arkansas, and Erin,who couldn't leave us Setters behind that morning, and especially my foster family, who opened their home and their hearts to me,...

You gave me the best gift of all, a heart, that now knows love, and a family of my very own,....
Thank you,... from the bottom of me Setterly Heart,..

Remember This Girl?

On March 9th when Erin brought the first load of Boat Mountain Hobbits to town- she left Louie and Serafina the Granny Hobbit in St. Louis in foster care. I just brought Sera home this am.

She is Hobbity Hobbiting already! Kati said Sera was in the worst shape when she first got her and when she brought her to the vet’s office- most of the staff cried when they saw the condition she was in; thick yeast encrusted ears and dental disease, cysts between her toes and inflamed skin.

She looks great after several weeks of TLC and she is settling nicely at Camp Luckypets just fine!!

Agnes Goes home!

We adopted Miss Agnes last weekend! She is doing great! The kids just adore her and she gets along great with Sundance, our other dog!
It is going to take a while for her to get trained on the invisible fence.
She has made herself right at home!! If she isn't playing she is curled up on the couch, her new bed or she takes turns sleeping with the kids!
Just thought we would let you now she is great!

Harry and The Giants!

So, you can get an Idea how small these guys are compared to a normal sized dog,..

Stella,...won Erin's Heart,and Was Invited To Come Along

Stella was beaten repeatedly by her owner, Erin tried to get Stella to lay down with her at Bedtime,.. but she was too nervous. As Erin was gathering up the dogs to begin her journey, Stella came over to say,"hey!', "I'm here,..can I go too?"
Erin said,"Yes, you can come too!"

Remembering days gone by,...Jesse James,Wendy,Harry

Coming up on 2 months ago, life was very diferent than it is now,..but some things will always remain the same,...
"The Pack",.. as they knew it was all that they had,...

Wendy,.. Aka -Rosiland
