And left, Robert Heller of MN created this gargoyle costume for Sonja Joy. Both dogs won BR's online costume contest in 2004.

You just gotta LOVE this red/red demon dog.

Thanks to all who came out to the Oakland City Council budget cuts mtng on Oct 16. The council heard our pleas, and 2 of the 3 endangered positions at the shelter are safe. Whew.

LOVE Sonja Joy's costume!

She looks just like my "Bently" ... but I don't think he'd allow those wings,=)

LOL! Those pictures should be titled "Why Pit Bulls Bite People." I wish we lived in the Bay Area and could join in the festivities. My piebald pittie is going as a cow. Have fun guys!

Indeed, a BIG thank you to those who voiced their opinions about the need to keep staff on board at OAS.
They have so many dogs . . . while spending approximately twenty minutes this past Saturday afternoon in the OAS lobby, I witnessed two owner-surrenders and one dog-at-large drop-off. Twenty minutes.
