    DefaultThe endless circle of life

    When I am at my lowest point, there is always something that brings my focus back. I had planed to come home from the vets and spend the rest of the day in bed with Hunter, Blacky and Diesel, but no one else shared my plan.

    I got these guys at Monroe County Ohio yesterday.







    Totally unsocialized and shy, but the little chocolate one is coming around. Some have a very distinct Chessie look to them and I thought Sandie at NY CBR Rescue might want them. As I looked more and more at them I was not sure I saw CBR anymore and told her I would place them here. They are about 12-14 weeks old.

    UPDATE to the second litter of pups **************************

    I was fairly certain that I would be getting these guys because Sandie said her husband knew and worked with the OP. Turns out that I have gotten the same email at least 10 more times since. Like Harley and Deuce, the two yellow labs that have been going around for months, these pups where in need of a home at one time, but have now been adopted long ago. Gusee I just had a weak moment because I can usually tell these kinds of thing when I get them. Sorry to make everyone think they where coming here. I DO have the first litter in my quarinteen area right now so I know they are for real

    WELL, Sandie just emailed this to me. It was sent to her husband at work.

    Subject: FW: Orphaned Puppies

    Thought to pass this along....



    Scott rescued 6 black lab (mix) puppies out of the middle of the road on Saturday. PLEASE help me find them homes - otherwise, it's Animal Control - which means they only have 5 days. We've bathed them, sprayed them for fleas and wormed them....but we can't keep them. They are currently in a kennel in my basement since I don't have a fence. I've lost count of the number of rescue groups that I've contacted, only to be turned down due to no room. Please check with every dog person you know to see if they need a puppy.


    Guess I am going to be too busy to feel sorry for myself for too long. And the circle continues :-[

    Bless you, Joe. Those in need number so many. But the difference you make is nonetheless huge. Maddie's smiling on you -- you know that, don't you??

    OMG the middle of the road. I really do despise people. Poor babies.

    Oh, gosh. It must feel like sticking your finger into a levee break sometimes. Bless you for all that you do.

    Wow, Joe. You sure will be busy. 11 pups?
    Thank you for doing this.

    Yes, the first group of pups look very shy.

    I can't tell you how much I admire your work, Joe. You've saved so many deserving doggies.

    I hope the pups provide you with some comfort.
