A rambling narrative about my life and my passion, dog rescue.
Monday, October 19, 2015
I'm in Kansas in time to see my mother's garden before it's hit by frost. We planted a lot of this when I was out here last May so it's nice to see it at the end of the season. As with all gardens, some things did better than others, some did better than expected, and some didn't. Most things did very well, even surviving through the heat and wind of a Kansas summer.
The dog is my mother's pug, Jake. There will be more pics of him coming later, I'm sure.
[Things are going well out here, much better than expected.]

This is a blog about my life, which largely revolves around a dog rescue operation. My partner and I live on 7 rural acres near Charlottesville, Virginia. We have 5+ large dogs of our own, and we foster large breed dogs for several different rescue organizations: Promises Animal Rescue, (www.promisesanimalrescue.org); Virginia German Shepherd Rescue, (www.shepherdrescue.org); Animal Connections, (www.animalconnections.org), and occasionally for other groups. German Shepherd Dogs and rottweilers are two of our favorites, but we love most large breed dogs and mutts.
