Okie girl countdown and barn progress


We're looking forward to seeing this little munchkin (who needs a name) land in CA. She's still in Oklahoma, healing from her spay surgery and making up for lost time by schmoozing every human that her new friend Molly Gibbs introduces her to. She's practicing her craft here with Jennifer Cummings of Claremore Animal Shelter. And did we tell you she gave love-rubs to a cat while at the shelter? Have mercy.

There's a good chance we'll miss this girl's much anticipated arrival ... We're headed back to the midwest for more bust dog business and expect to be tied up for the good part of a week. This involves more gag orders, I'm sorry to say. But soon enough, we'll be able to outline how yet another state went about handling its bust dog victims.

BARN UPDATE: While we've been fussing with travel plans and having fun with the photo contest, people have been great about helping us chip away at Tana Madrigal's 10K matching gift challenge. We're currently $7,120.00 away from the big jump up the bar. To sweeten this effort, we've been offered a challenge within a challenge. Laurie, otherwise known as dogfostermom around the net, has offered to match any gifts up to 1K that come from readers of her blog called, "My Life as a Dog Foster Mom." Check it out. Laurie's got some crazy-fun photos and posts about life with foster dogs and, in between, she's always raising funds for other groups. Thanks for your big and busy heart, Laurie.

Our most recent barn raisers: Esther Shir, Barbara Mroz, Wilma Broekhuizen, Michelle Stewart, Ann Kolbeck, Ken Foster, Karel Bagwell, Carmen Velasquez, Kristin Herrera, Anne Graves, Martha Kennedy, David Brown, Andrea Ives, Lynn Greenberg, Lisa Warner, Melinda Richards, Kathleen Hanley, Robin Causbrook, Boris Artemyev, Mahsa Adami, Jonna Hensley, and Stuart Fisk. Thank you!

How about Nuki? Or Kahani (means story in hindi) she is so cute I want to squish her little face

I like Nuki. Although it begs for a song about Noogies for Nuki!

We're working under some restrictions including confidentiality agreements or else we'd open the door. Sorry about that, but thanks for offering Mike.

Te Ata or Ada Lois (Sipuel Fisher) - 2 OK women who effected big changes in the world's perceptions, just like little miss is helping to change the world's perception of bust dogs. Or Clare from Claremore.
