I'll be speaking about Shelter Strategies for Pit Bulls at the Pacific Northwest Animal Care & Control Conference this coming Friday and Saturday. If you live in the area and are curious about better ways to help pit bulls, please set part of your Saturday aside to be there. Sat's session is open to rescue groups and wanna-be rescuers. This is my first-ever time to Seattle, and I'm dying to know, will I get to see a wild orca? (Please, please, please)
Announcing, a Photo Book! We've been so inspired by the beautiful photos and stories that have been pouring in to the photo contest that we've decided to run a group of 'judge's picks' in a book, entitled - what else - My Dog is Family. With some luck, it will be completed in time for the holidays. The contest runs for another two weeks, so please vote for your favorites. And if you still have photos that you want to share - submit! They just may find their way into this new project. Above: Sasha Bean is loved by Lisa Hagell and her family in Lloydminster, Alberta. Lisa says she is the "best friend to our 2 year old daughter. Our family would be incomplete without Sasha Bean." Bless you girls!
