Doggies gone wild

these dogs at the weddings sure were in the way at the wrong times, funny though.

would you like to raise money for senior dogs and their people?  Doggies deserve new Homes and so do their people !!!!

Some cities are starting to fine owners of dogs for leaving their pets outside during the cold / heat. This is good. Pets can die outside in the cold / heat and they should also not be chained up and left outside 24/7.

And what I would like to know is:  who is going to be held accountable for leaving people (some who also have pets) outside in the cold / heat without shelter????

Hypothermia can set in even in weather as warm as 50 degrees, but many cities don’t declare hypothermia alerts or winter emergencies,…

As the size of the average American family home has ballooned over the last half century—homes are now two-and-half times larger than they were in 1950—so too has the homeless population.

…More than 3.5 million people, including 1.35 million children, experience homelessness in the United States each year, according to the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty.

400+ women over the age of 50 are without homes in the Monterey Bay.

who is going to be held accountable for leaving elderly women out in the cold ????

 

Cici and I would love to start a non-profit, with your assistance, that would actually provide housing, tiny mobile homes, RV’s, campers, etc. for these women to have SHELTER, privacy and dignity. Don’t you think that elderly women, many with dogs, deserve homes to live out their life with grace?

 

Like Christine who has been sleeping outside in the cold and heat for two years now. And others sleeping in tents. One lady 75 years old while getting chemo and radiation treatments. Or an 82 year old woman who slept in her van for three years.

 

Won’t you help us Get Elderly Women OUT of the Cold ??? Thanks.

Thanks !

 

who let the dogs out?

free weekly giveaway ends tomorrow… yurts anyone?

ok, you have one more day, the last few days no one else has submitted any entries… which makes us think that we should give people a shorter amount of time… for the next giveaway, you will have a day or two… Internet time is faster than real time…   we have some wonderful new surprises and resources coming up… 

yesterday, while writing about yurts and affordable and alternative housing for my blog for the Seattle newspaper, I came across two cute photos (below)… a dog in a yurt and a couple of llamas in a yurt…since I don’t yet know how to post photos there, and since they are animals, thought I’d post them here for you to enjoy… and if you don’t know and want to know what a yurt is, visit my other blog below (hint: a yurt is a round or circular or dome housing structure used by nomads in Mongolia, Russia and even in the USA)…  am thinking that they will come in handy on some land for the K9 healing center, some yurts for the animals, a yurt for myself, for staff and guests… yurts are in campgrounds across America, there are yurt bed and breakfast inns, and yurts have endured extreme weather such as snow, rain, and heat… they are extremely affordable… portable… and easy to put up, good for emergency relief shelter, nomads, dog kennels, dog weddings, mobile offices, writer’s retreat, artists studio, dog camps, doggie daycare and doggie education centers.  Women writers with dogs retreat and healing center… 

If anyone would like to donate land, yurts, expertise and other resources for the doggie healing and education center, please let me know.  we will need to set up a 5013c non-profit status, grants, and donations… am going to announce a Creative Expression contest this week which will help launch and fund the healing center so get in on the ground floor, for the pups.

dog weddings in England… German dogs wear shoes…

I sent the doggie wedding links and videos to a friend in England who replied, Only in America… then I was did a search about dog weddings around the world, and what do you know, I found all of these about dog weddings in Harrod’s in London, a gay dog wedding, dogs at ay wedding ceremonies and so on… hah, I told him… hah… England swings… so if you ever go to England, bring your dog !

the thing with English people is that they have this stiff upper lip image but can be quite funny… humor makes the world go round…

wonder what the divorce rates are for dogs?  who gets the pups?  who are the  aliboney attorneys? are the toys and treats counted as assets or just the bones? who gets to keep the dog house? something old (a shoe, perhaps), something borrowed (the neighbor’s chew toy), something blue (the neighbor), and something new to chew (a bone)…here are some tips on doggie wedding dresses and tuxedos for all of you K9 fashionistas… Nicole Richie was seen purchasing wedding attire for her two little dogs…
