As some of you might have known yesterday was clear-out the shelter day in most (if not all states) in the US of A, my 2 year old rotty is now a healthy 115 lbs. and is just too Phuking big & strong to be harassing my 12 year old Lab all day, so off to the shelter it is, we had our eyes on a 5 month old Boxer until we arrived and found her to be gone to her new home, We came across an 18 month old female(brindle) Boxer that hadbin owner surrendered along with 2 of her brothers the previous day, she has had a litter of pups & is a little shy as she was in a totally foreign environment, we paid for the spay & for her to be chipped yesterday and will be taking Madeline (the Rotty) over later today for a meet & greet.

 

There were 165 Pitbulls in this one shelter alone!! WTF is wrong with people? I am not a pit fan by any means, but I am an animal lover (must be the farm boy) but it pains me to see what hasbin done to this breed!!! All in all it was a good day for the animals, 17K animals sent to new homes yesterday and I am glad one of them will be spending it's remaining days with a family that will love her and not use her as a puppy mill for $$

You rock my friend! Good on you for giving another furry angel a home

Remember, one is fine, 2 is trouble, 3 is a pack. My 5 used to drag home pieces of critters they caught (at least they shared).

Anyway, certain people think they need a pit, female is best, and start pumping out the pups. No vet, no shots, no training. Before long you have a pack running the streets. This would probably be true of any breed if treated the same. Damn shame, sure is.

Your pup will have a good home. Congrats!

LUCKY DOG LUCKY DOG, damn I would give anything to be a dog at your house. If we had dogs running the country we would be in a lot better shape then we have been for the last 20 years.

We have both cats and dogs - 2 dogs, 5 cats. The wife and I volunteer at a no-kill cat sanctuary, where they have recently had an outbreak of ringworm - so we are fostering 2 cats (yeah, that makes 7 cats at our house).

 

Both cats are rescues - found on the street. One was abandoned and was starving when she was found. She had all sorts of ailments, but has been nursed back to health. She's really a great cat.. (and we may end up keeping her).

 

If you volunteer at animal shelters, you'll soon come to believe that human beings are savages - and will in time be almost embarrassed to be a member of the human race.

Dam the older you get the more good comes out of you. I is impressed again. What will be the name of this dog? But be warned the sidecar on a Ural is not big enough to haul two big dogs. So whenever you get one well they going to have to take turns riding. If is was to put another dog in mine with Max well it would be a might tight fit. Over on Adventure forum there is a young lady that rode her KLR 650 with a sidecar all the way to Alaska she is on her way back now. And she took her dog with her whose name is Baylor in the sidecar looks like a Lab that I use to have some years ago. Look under Epic rides for Operation Moto Dog the girls :love: name is Mallory Page. She had some problems with the KLR but the fellows that ride them up in Alaska repaired it for her and got her back on the road.

My wife and daughter heard a tiny cry outside in the woods and saw a small feral kitten crying. They gave it some milk and it than ran into the woods.

 

The next nite it was crying under our storage shed. My wife and daughter went down but it wouldn't come to my wife. My daughter clapped her hands and it walked right up to her.

 

Of course they adopted it. It was so small it didn't know how to drink or eat normal food. Long story short, Rocket the feral cat runs the house.

 

We also adopted an abandoned, registered, Japanese Chin several years ago from shelter. Absolutely the best dog we have every had.

 

Help animals when you can, the payback is way better than what you put into it.

My wife & I keep in contact with two Rott & a Boxer rescue in 3 different states, it is true about being embarrassed to be humans with what we have seen done to these dogs, I don't think I could handle working at a rescue as I would hunt people down & do to them what they did to the dog, but we do donate $$ to many rescues.

 

I was driving home from work a few years ago when I observed a young adult male yanking a yellow Lab around by the leash, I went around the block and had a word with him, the punk got a little smart-assed with me So I took the dog and put it in the back seat of my truck & told him the only way he was getting the dog back was to either kick my ass and take it back or put the collar around his own neck, when he did I hooked up the leash and yanked his young ass around for a few minutes asking him "how do you like it" he broke-down & started crying and said he was sorry so I had pitty on him (I wish I had just taken the dog) But I told him I would take his dog home with me if I ever seen him mistreating her again.

Well the meet & greet went as expected, the two walked side by side together for a few yards before the ass sniffing went into full effect (NO I was not the one doing the sniffing) Any way all three dogs got along great so it's "all ahead full" I have to admit this Boxer is the most docile (mellow) Boxer I have ever met, I hope it is because of the events she hasbin thru the last couple days, I want her to be the ball of fire, full of energy, non-stop phuk with (play with) my Rott that all of the other Boxers I have met are.... :nod:

Yeah, I think she will come around, The girl that did the meet & greet was the one that did the intake on Friday, they were surrendered because of too many in one household (we can have 5 in our county without a permit) she said "Sassy" has already had two litters & her brothers were fighting over her as they were in the same kennel the first few hours, yes she is in season again...

 

Again, I ask WTF is wrong with humans?? Two litters before she was 15 Months old?? Her previous owners need to be euthanized!!! Good thing for me I wasn't the one doing the intake, I would be asking for donations to bail my Phatt Ass out of the Pokey :1106::banghead::banghead:

Mine are all rescues, they give back more than anyone could know, my oldest now, "Beau" came home 9 years ago from a rescue , the first two years of his life some motherless fuck beat and tortured him to near death.

 

The neighbors heard him screaming and called the cops , he was malnourished , scarred and had his pelvis broken by a beating with a bat

They took him to a shelter and put back together he was tagged as "unadoptable"

We took him home 9 years ago, he's a wonderful 4 legged child and we couldn't love him enough

If I ever found out who did that to him , I would inflict so much pain his ancestors would scream out in pain

 

There's a special place in hell for shitheads that abuse animals

Brother, I was thinking of you yesterday when they unloaded a horse from a trailer, this poor thing was skinny as hell and had been left tied-up in a barn for who knows how long, today I asked about her & they said a rescue from Bakersfield drove down and picked her up, I was thinking it would be cool if she could spend her remaining days on your ranch not worrying if she would ever be fed again

One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is how animals can forgive. The things I've seen working in rescue shelters.. if they had happened to me, i would never ever forgive and would always hate the species that tortured me.

 

And yet, animals forgive us.

 

Back when we lived in Raleigh NC I was involved with a ferret rescue group. One night I got a call to go pick up a ferret that some teen age kid had - the ferret was kept in an aquarium and had been starved and living in about 2 inches of its own piss. He has sores all over his body and was in really bad shape.

 

On the drive home the little guy just wanted to be in my lap. He crawled inside my sweater and curled up and went to sleep. That was probably the first time in his life that he had received comfort from a human being... it just seemed incredible that after a lifetime of abuse at the hands of people, that he would turn to me for comfort.

 

We had an appointment with a vet for the next day, but after cleaning him up, that night while we were trying to keep him alive feeding him baby food he died in my arms.

Ken, you are so right. If animals wanted revenge for the treatment they received, the human race would be about half of what it is now.

Once agin Chris I say yous is a good man. I had a brain fart :ooh2: yesterday evening. I was feeding Max and I say to him " Lets take the Ural to town and put some gas in it" so why he was eating I walk over to shop and push it out and check the air in the tires. Ural's are notorious for leaking air out tubes they are porous and if set a week it lose 5 lbs more in colder weather. Anyway I aired them up and Max finish eating and wanders over to me and he is ready to go. So he loads up and I put leash on him and his goggles and off we go. Back in 2007 when I had a Ural and he was young he was always standing up and moving around looking now that he is older be 11 Dec 24 of dis here yr. he sets down. Eleven yr he been watching over me :nod: We get the gas and commence our ride back home, we live about 10 mile from town. We couple of miles from house and he starts standing up,I just figure he smelling something. Tried to make him set back down but no he was going to stand. It is hard enough trying to keep one of these machines on the road and reaching down and trying to make Max set. Ok you can stand. It dark when we get home and I pull up to shop and take his leash and goggles off and he jumps out and hauls ass somewhere. So I pull it inside and kinda clean it slobber off of it cause it still fairly hot down here. :ooh2::ooh2: What is this I see in the bottom of the sidecar. :nod: yep Max took a dump. Now when this dog takes a dump he leaves a big pile. So I get me some shop towels and pick it up. Luckily he did not have runs. So I clean it up last night and go over it agin this morning to see if I miss any. All clean now. Wife say it is my fault (naturally) cause I did not give him time to take his dump after he eats. But darling he was a ready to go. I just put a windshield on the sidecar and with this Max does not have as much room as he use to have and he ain't in the wind all the time. He got to have that big ass nose and head in the wind. Thats me story. Your time is coming Chris.

Long Story short...wife says to me "hey got a line a pet psychic to talk to the animal, only $50 bucks" my reply, we could spend that over the bar and have more fun, (being with the same women for 30 years, I say sure order it up). This women comes out to out place and know s nothing but my wifes first name, she proceeds to "talk" with horses and dogs and then scares the shit out of me with what she says they told her, nailed Beau's horrible abuse (she started crying when she laid her hands on his head), he told her about the pain he had and how lonely he was until his "dad" finally found him and brought him home (with us).

 

At the time my main horse had a collic surgery and I couldnt ride her for months as she healed Sage told the psychic that she feels good and her and I needed to head into the mountains together, lost of wild stuff.

 

So the psychic tells me "let me tell you how this works, the animals you have in your life, dogs, cats, horse etc are not with you by accident, they are SUPPOSED to be with you its pre determined. Some have been with you throughout your life and some will come back, some have been with you in past lives ( she said Sage carried me into battle hundreds of years ago) you come whether they are born at your home, or you come across a set of big brown eyes at a shelter, a stray show up etc. She said they are angels that come to you in animal form to provide you happiness, love, comfort and to teach you patience, humility etc. They provide you unconditional love, at sometime they will leave you and maybe return but will also be around you. real tough when you lose one, they tear a little piece of your heart and take it with them, but leave with some great memories.

 

There is no therapy better that hugging a good dog or riding through empty wilderness on a good horse. :)

I agree with you about the therapy with hugging a dog and there ain't nothing finer than to see a fimale riding a good horse or a motorsickle. My father in law use to have a big ole black Lab Sport was his name. Years ago we were rota known (sp) a tank picking up the fish. Father in law and I was in a boat stirring up the chemical and picking up fish when they were floating to the top. Ole Sport was in the tank swimming around and when a fish popped up in front of him he would get it in his mouth swim over to the bank and drop it and go back in for another one. I could tell you many stories about that ole black Lab. Another time we were dove hunting and I father in law shot and Sport when out to get them and bring them back. Heard him yelling at Sport " Don't eat, don't eat" then he started cussing and next thing Sport come running up and set down by me looked at me looked back down at father in law.
