WELCOME TO 2015 !!

Posted on January 19, 2015 at 2:00 PM Comments comments (38)

The road to hell is paved with good intentions is the way the saying goes. And sometimes I think I'm living there. One post all last year. Clearly don't make a good blogger. Or updater. Hard to have people interested in what we're doing if I don't find time to tell people what we're doing. Or not able to do. No promises I will do any better this year, but I have good intentions and a fire extinguisher. Well...yes...the BIG thing was the well...

Here We Go Again

Posted on April 2, 2014 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I sure don't seem to be able to find time to get here to keep folks informed too often. Will try to do better this year. Heck, 2014 is only 25% over already. Ought to be able to get back with news of the goings on at least once before 2015 rolls around. I hope.

I hate doing the same thing over and over. Doesn't matter what it is. We took in a little red feral pig named Honey to be one of our residents some weeks ago. She was becoming a problem at a thoroughbred training facility a...

It comes and goes so fast around here.  Let's see now...it's been three nights since we found the raccoon wandering in circles...many calls later to wildlife and various vets it became clear that I would have to figure it out pretty much by myself.

Seems if a raccoon DARES to show itself, especially if it's obviously in need of help,  that is more than sufficient reason for it to be "humanely euthanized."  The conclusion drawn by pretty much everyone...

Missing Them

Posted on November 5, 2011 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (1)

It's been a hard week. And I know there will be progressively more hard days making for hard weeks. Our Darlins are getting older. Some of them are already very old and well outside what is generally considered their "normal" lifespan.  Many had several years on them before they ever came to us and we have been at it for over a decade. And it is never easy when they make up their minds to go on to that "better place" despite all my begging and pleading and best that can be found medical ...

This is a sad commentary about Americana and the errosion of human consciousness on so many levels.

A Day to Be Thankful

Posted on October 28, 2010 at 9:23 PM Comments comments (0)

I have a couple of important things to be thankful for tonight. 


One of them is being thankful to still be alive with an expectation that I might wake up on the right side of the grass in the morning.  It certainly could have been very different.  I was one split second from dead when I found myself suddenly upon that trash truck and traveling at 50 MPH...there it was, ten feet from my face, st...

Having A Helluva Time...As Usual

The good news is that Kato is doing exceedingly well since his surgery...haven't heard the results from the lab on the mass that was removed from his face but I'm going with the "No news is good news" idea.  The lip suture line has opened some and getting him to take the Cipro pills BID was a joke.  They taste nasty.  Bet he wishes he'd have cooperated since I know he hates those daily shots of Gentocin that will go on for two weeks and they bur...

Kato's Surgery

Posted on October 20, 2010 at 11:59 AM Comments comments (0)

Well it was supposed to be a trip to the vet to file down a tusk.  After all, the tumor took up half his face. The tusk was cutting into the bottom of the tumor and making it difficult for him to eat and undoubtedly uncomfortable.  How could anyone even think about removal of such a thing? Besides, it's just a pig. Put him out of his misery would be the advised course.  That is not an option in this rescue.  And especially not because it would be the most co...

Poor Dogs

Posted on September 20, 2010 at 9:40 AM Comments comments (1)

On 9/23 it's back to court to see if the Judge in Imperial Polk County, FL,  is going to let me have a hearing to defend the dogs or if she is going to attempt to uphold the clearly unconstitutional seizure of  personal property without benefit of any hearing.  In Polk County, FL, there seems to be little respect for 14th Ammendment Constitutional Law and there is certainly no respect for animals.  This is clearly a police state. 


I was pa...
