“Yes dear, someone’s turned the light out, put the pieces out of touch. Do we now try lighting candles? Does it really matter quite that much?” – author unknown These are the words from a poem I read in high school. I can still remember them clearly thirty-some years later because I added music […]

This morning, I spent a little extra time in bed snuggling. This time it was with a cat named Sebastian, and two dogs, Bosco and BooGee. This time, it was because I did not feel like starting the day. I thought of Paketo. She had the funniest little quirk to her meow. She would […]

As we head into a new week and as we head into the two weeks leading up to Francesca’s next court date — April 16, 2010, I am reminded of the words Apple‘s Steve Jobs authored. It speaks to those people who inspire us and motivate us. Those who go out on a limb […]

All I know is, I love my dog, Brindi, more than anybody on the planet. There is nobody who will take better care of her or work harder to keep her safe and sound, with all the necessary aids and precautions.

Because the morning afforded it, I spent a little extra time in bed this morning snuggling with Ike and Maude, two of my rescued dogs. They aren’t anything special. They were born in the woods to a dog who had been dumped on the side of the road. They will likely live their whole lives and pass meaning very little to anyone… except me.

All of nature has the ability to reason and the ability to negotiate. It’s innate in us. As natural as rain. You need only look at the pecking order in a herd of wild horses to see this or the feeding rotation of birds around a birdfeeder.

WHAT IF the city impounded your pet and wouldn’t let you have visitation… what would you do? WHAT IF your only alternative to save your pet from euthanasia was to sue the city… would you do it?

WHAT IF city authorities arrived at your door one night with a warrant to SEIZE AND DESTROY your family pet… what would you do? WHAT IF the same by-law that brought them to your door — a by-law designed to safeguard the city — offered you no option for challenging this warrant… what would you do?

Tomorrow the judge will decide her fate. The only thing we can do now is to spread this post as far and wide as possible using all means necessary. ” Awareness that leads to action” has been the tone of this campaign.
March 1, 2010
When we launched our 13 days campaign we had a choice. Explain from the beginning the 19 months of hell Brindi and Francesca have gone through or FOCUS on creating a big wave of awareness and prompt people to action. No. Not a big campaign.. a HUGE ONE!

Board of Animal Services Commissioners moves to amend L.A. Code to free Stu! The Board convened at about 10:30 (a half-hour late) and immediately began discussion of Item 3A regarding Stu.

The only thing keeping Stu alive right now is that the Court decision does not become final for 30 days after the ruling. The ruling was issued June 23, 2009.

Do you have any items you would donate to help raise funds to defray the legal costs of getting Brindi released from the SPCA in Nova Scotia? She was seized by authorities and impounded in July 2008.

The California Court of Appeals today ruled that the City’s sentence of death against Stu, a ten year-old dog with a record of one biting incident four years ago, when Stu had himself just been injured, could stand.

Another story has surfaced today about a dog being held in by Animal Services for a ridiculous amount of time for less than logical reasons. I swear dogs do better in the wild than in the company of domesticated humans. In a nutshell, a dog, Stu, gets rescued from the streets in 2000 and lives happily and comfortable with his owner, Jeff de la Rosa, and two other dogs. Life is good.
