Mysterious Ways

We all know the adage “God works in mysterious ways”. As a rescue director and animal lover from birth, I see God’s hand in so many situations. Sometimes a pet is the one thing that keeps a person from giving up. Sometimes a pet provides security, and sometimes, a pet is the catalyst for a […]

Homeless. It is not a word most of us think will ever apply to us. But as of last Friday evening, that is my life situation. I came home from work at my usual time, as I do five days a week. I had been home at lunchtime to check on my dogs and let […]

I don’t know about your pets, but mine are thrilled to be able to go outside and soak in this gorgeous weather. As I look in the yard I see tiny sunbathers in little pods. It must feel so good to feel the sunshine after so many rainy cold days! There is new grass to […]

The Street That Raised Me

The Street That Raised Me

Two years ago, I moved three doors down from the Midtown Montgomery house I grew up in. My neighborhood was my world when I was young. Kids had the freedom of really knowing every neighbor, of building forts and clubhouses and knowing which trees were the best for climbing. We played outside until the street […]

Christmas is upon us, with all its warm fuzzies. We have had our first freeze, first fires in the fireplace, and the baking has started. Tis the season of giving, of making happiness, of being grateful. Of using your heart. Since I write about pets, it is only fitting that my eyes are always open […]

Tis the Season for Allergies!

Tis the Season for Allergies!

Spring approaches, peeking around the cold corners of winter. I sense it on these warmer afternoons when the air smells like promise. The dogs are so slap-happy to get some time to lie in the afternoon sun before a chill brings their little bodies back to the warm house. I love spring and all its […]

Loving Senior Pets

I follow several dog related Facebook pages, most of which relate to rescue. There are happy stories, scary stories and heartbreaking stories. The ones which really break me are the ones relating to older dogs who are abandoned on the streets or in shelters. These “senior” dogs have often spent their entire lives with a […]

For the Love – and Loss – of a Dog

Last month, I had to let my dog go. She was not just any dog, she was Anya. The most noble, graceful, selfless and innately kind dog I have ever known. She was a Greyhound, born ten years ago in a litter of nine. She was racing at a track near my home with a […]

Straight from the Heart

Editors’ Note: This was very much on our mind as we made sure to go get heartworm meds for our dog at Montgomery Veterinary Associates today. At the core of all living beings is the heart. Its beats mean life to all. Without a beating heart, there is no life, right? And a compromised heart […]

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Although we are not Chicago, or Minnesota, the South still experiences real cold during the winter. Alabama has set some records for cold temperatures lately. While humans more often than not have the luxury of living inside a toasty warm house, many animals are left outside and forced to deal with survival in truly inhospitable […]
