Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption,Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

Paw! You know my opinion concerning Black Labrador Retrievers and Dog Adoption. So, I won't paw how great they are and why you need to adopt one- I'll just introduce you to a beautiful Black Labrador Retriever who was introduced to me by my friend "Lab Lady" and I think is the pawfect companion.   WOOF!

Meet Buck!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
This character is truly a special dog!  He comes from the country and has no exposure to big cities- isn't he blessed- so he'll need a "Forever Home" in a single family stand-alone home in a suburban neighborhood or a rural area!  WOOF!!!!

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
Buck is one energetic and affectionate 11 month old male Black Labrador Retriever! He will have you in a good mood all day with this silly antics and will greet you by spinning in circles around your legs and giving you "kisses" at your asking.

He knows the basic commands like "drop it","sit", "stay", "ready", and "get the ball!" A quick learner, Buck is matering "lay down!" He recently learned to climbs the stairs in his foster's home in a matter of minutes.See him do stairs at Up the Stairs!. He loves to burn off energy by going for a long walk with his humans!

Pawsly, Buck will need a family that will forgive his occasional puppy behavior (mouthing) and provide consistent training and positive reinforcement. He is treat-motivated, very focused, and will work hard at learning anything you ask of him!

He is house and crate trained.  He has experience with children, so he's approved for ages 6 and older. No cat history though! He is good with other dogs!

Watch him play at: Buck at Play!

Buck would love to go to a home with another dog which he could run and play with, but, he'd be happy to be your only dog too!

Now am just letting you know this, "Buck has a deformity to his head and his left eye has Microphthalmia which is a condition in which the eyeball is smaller than normal. He has an under bite, which does not bother him."

Buck is up to date on vaccines.

Interested in meeting Buck?  Please visit Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.!

MEOW!!! Er, uh, I get this way when I get to see my friend, "Cat Lady!"  I've known her for awhile and she is such a kind lady-  cats are so blessed to have her looking out for them.

"Cat Lady" of PetConnect Rescue brought me a cat for you to meet, Cinnamon!!

(C) PetConnect Rescue
Cinnamon is a sweet young kitty, born in March 2014.  She still has the playfulness of a kitty, but, enjoys being petted and brushed too.

PetConnect Rescue doesn't know why anyone would want to give up such a cool bundle of luvin's like Cinnamon- but she deserves a pawnderful "Forever Home!"

Now, she was a bit shy at first, so she would probably do best in an adult household.

One of Cinnamon's favorite places on earth is a warm sunny spot, do you have one that could use a sweet cat to enjoy it?

Are you looking for a young kitty to enjoy life with?  Cinnamon might be the pawfect cat for you!
(C) PetConnect Rescue
Cinnamon is up-to-date on vaccinations, and tested negative for FIV/FeLV.

Interested in meeting Cinnamon, please complete the PetConnect Rescue Adoption Application and one of their adoption coordinators will contact you.

WOOF!!  Happy Friday! We have had a great week at my house.  I've been entertaining some guests who are visiting from another country.  They don't speak English very well, but they speak dog just fine.  Been great to be pet by 7 humans instead of 2.  Hee! hee! Oh, I could live like this FOREVER!!!

(C) Operation Paws for Homes
Barkingly, I've got a friend from Operation Paws for Homes looking for her "Forever Home" that I would like you to meet.  

Miranda, a Carolina Dog mix, is about 2 years old, weighs 35lbs., I know it's not polite to tell a woman's age or weight but you need to know so as pawlitely as I can- that's it.  WOOF!

This girl has some great favorite past times, swimming, chewing on Nylabones, chasing her foster siblings, going for a ride, traveling, playing fetch, and emptying the toy bin.  And, can calm down to sleep in her crate- is crate and house trained!

Miranda would be the perfect dog for a family who would like a semi-active dog to play or travel with!

Miranda gets along well with other dogs and has fun at the dog park- it's also said that she is great with cats, horses, and other animals.

She is up to date on her vaccines, microchipped and spayed.

Essential Accessories That You Must Have At Home As A New Cat Owner

You will be all over the moon with the thoughts of bringing your new cat home. If you are going to bring a new cat home, then you need to have some of the essential accessories at your home in order to make the cat feel comfortable. There are many supplies and accessories that you need to consider before bringing the new cat home. You will need to think about accessories and supplies ranging from foods to beds to litter boxes and toys to make your cat feel comfortable in your home.

Litter Boxes
One of the most essential accessories that you need to have ready in your home before you bring home your pet cat is the litter box. Young cats will learn to use the litter boxes from their mothers. It is the best place for the cat to potty as it will not spoil your home interiors and floors. You can think of buying open or enclosed or self cleaning or automatic cleaning litter boxes, depending on your budget and need.

Bed For Cats
Cats love to spend more time sleeping and indoor pet cats love to sleep near you at night. You should make sure that you get a comfortable bed for your new cat to sleep. Round cat beds are a very good option as most cats love to curl up while sleeping. If you find that your cat is not using the bed, then you need to place the bed in the location where the cat sleeps often to make it use the bed.

Like children, small pet cats also love to play with toys. You can play with your cat while you are at home to strike a bond with the cat. Cats are social creatures and love to play with their owners. You can even use cat toys that you find in the market to play with your cats. This will make the cat use and play with the toys when you are not at home.

Cat Brush
One of the important cat accessories that you should never miss buying is the cat brush. You need to brush your cat regularly in order to prevent cat fur from getting deposited on your furniture and clothes. The cat brushes are a must have during spring and fall seasons when the cat starts to shed its fur. There are many types of brushes available in the market. Choose one depending on the size of the cat and the fur it has.

Cat Carrier
If you have bought a kitten for your home, then you need a good cat carrier for your pet. You can use it to safely transport your pet to and from the vet’s office. You should make the cat carrier a comfortable place for the kitten by placing his or her favorite toys in it.

There are many cat accessories that are available in the marketplace. Choose the ones that you feel would keep your cat comfortable and also ones that you definitely need in your home.

"Help Sweet Norah" - Operation Paws for Homes

Please note: Due to name similarity, I want to paw this article is raising funding to assist dog- not me (Noah!)

I am a blessed dog.  I have humans who love me, a home, food, treats, toys and human friends who come visit.  Unfortunately, not all dogs have the advantage that I have had.

Barkingly, if you've followed my blog long, or my human's blog, you know I haven't always had it this good.  I was a stray once roaming the countryside, was rescued and eventually ended up with my humans.

(C) Operation Paws for Homes
I'd like you to meet my pal "Norah" from Operation Paws for Homes.  She's had a rough life and is looking for support to help get through some challenges.

Operation Paws for Homes is hosting a medical fundraiser to help Norah with her challenges through an organization called, Love Animals.

Let me share with you her story: "Norah is a 7-1/2 pound, 8 year-old Maltese who was seized from a house of hoarders, which for her was a house of horrors.  She lived with  27 cats, six dogs, one rabbit, three kids, and two adults in one house.

The house was horrid condition- I wouldn't put my paw in it- but thankfully Operation Paws for Homes did- there were feces and urine all over the floor, no working sink, trash and filth everywhere.  The humans were taken to prison on felony counts of animal abuse and neglect, as well as child endangerment and neglect.

Norah came to Operation Paws for Homes looking like a Chinese Crested dog because she had very little hair- she was covered with fleas too! arf?

A visit to the vet indicated Norah was not spayed so her increased hormones had caused her to develop a number of tumors. A baseball-sized tumor was removed from her uterus during her spay procedure, along with a smaller tumor in her mammary glands. A second tumor was removed from the surrounding area as a precaution.

These surgeries were needed so Norah could have a better quality of life!
(C) Operation Paws for Homes

Though this girl has had to endure quite a bit of bad in her life, she is feeling quite a bit better and looking good! WOOF!!  She is suspicious that her "Forever Home" may not be far away- she loves to share doggie kisses with everyone!

Operation Paws for Homes is grateful for the compassionate treatment and critical care Norah received to help her recover from her situation.

The care was expensive- would you be able to help defray the costs for Norah's treatment?  If so, please visit, "Help Sweet Norah".  Any donations will help and will be greatly appreciated.

Or, ruffing, may you could share her photo with some of your human friends who might be interested in helping cover the costs or maybe adopt one of her friends.

Operation Paws for Homes, a 501(c)(3) organization, is 100% donor funded receiving no funding from federal, state, or county governments. They rely on donations and our adoption fees in order to save the dogs in need.

Donate at "Help Sweet Norah" to help with Norah's medical expenses!

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, PetConnect Rescue

WOOF!!! Hope you had a GR-R-R-REAT!!! week- mine was busy learning new places to walk my human, trying to get my human to behave and trying to get my human not to be so embarassing- especially in public- but he's always been a challenge, guess he always will be- but we make a great team-

My friend "Big Bruno" who helps foster dogs for PetConnect Rescue brought a cool lovable 1 year old Hound mix by for you to meet-  This is Peter (Sweet Pete)-
(C) PetConnect Rescue
This character has not met anyone who he doesn't like, two legged or four!  He loves long walks in the neighborhood, going for rides in the car and hikes in the forest! And, he loves to play tug-of-war! WOOF!!  An all-round, fun, great, happy, dog- I would say!

Peter is looking for a "Forever Home" with a fenced yard where he'd have his place to run and play- he plays hard!  When the day is done, he enjoys cuddling- all snuggled up next to his human!

He is on affection overload - he cuddles, kisses, will nibble your ears and expresses his love in his native hound holler! And, best of all, when he talks with his head nuzzled up under your chin, your heart will melt.

Peter knows his basic commands "come, sit" and is working on stay. He is house and crate trained.

He is current on vaccines and preventatives.

My friend, Pete is eager to find a family to love! Will it be yours?

Interested in meeting Pete?  Please complete PetConnect Rescue Adoption Online Application, then email Randi

Pete's adoption fee for this dog is $295, which includes routine vetting and spay/neuter.

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Operation Paws for Homes

WOOF!!! Happy FRIDAY!!!! Been a good week for me- got to meet some new human friends and a few canine friends too.

My friend at Operation Paws for Homes has had her hands full with finding homes for these two young ladies, Marguerita and Sangria. 

"Margarita and Sangria"
(C) Operation Paws for Homes
Marguerita is a 3 year old young Chihuahua mix who weighs about 11 lbs. 

Barkingly, she is a good cuddler- enjoys cuddling with her foster siblings and her foster human. 

Marguerita just loves to be outside and loves laying in the sun but she loves to have her buddy Sangria with her. 

She loves people and other dogs, but, if they don't belong in her house, Marguerita will let them know.  She will quit hollering at them once you let her know it's alright!  WOOF!! GOOD DOG!! WOOF!!!

She is crate trained, housebroken, and pretty good on a leash. 

Marguerita and Sangria were found hiding in a bush with their babies.  They helped each keep safe until they were rescued. Thankfully, the two were able to raise their babies in the foster humans home!! Arf!  The babies are all gone to their "Forever Homes" - now it's my turn.  

Sangria is my bestest friend.  Pawingly, we don't spend much time apart and do almost everything together!  

Pawsingly pawfect, Sangria is a 2 year old, 10 lbs., Chihuahua mix who is looking for her "Forever Home" too.  
"Margarita and Sangria"

Sangria is the perfect cuddle-snuggle up with and watch TV dog.  She loves to have her belly rubbed especially while cuddly with her human!

A lover of all dogs, big and small, and her humans, she would make a great companion dog.  

She will notify you if someone strange is around, but will stop hollering once you tell me its alright!  ARF!!

Sangria is housebroken, crate trained, and is pretty good on a leash!!

She loves giving her foster human doggie kisses and just hanging out with her.

Uma had entropian surgery on one eye to correct a condition where the lids grow inwards and the eye lashes rub on the eye which is both painful and dangerous. As of the my writing this post, she will have to keep stitches in for another few days with an eye oinment to follow.

Uma has no experience with children, so she's approved for ages 10 and older.  Also, no cat history.  ARF! She is good with other dogs!

Noah's Houndisms: A Quote

Used by pemission, ChristianQuotes

My human and I found this quote on the Christian Quotes website.  Barkingly, I had to share it.  I believe God created me to be the dog that I am.  I hope to see my human in heaven- years and years from now- that is!  WOOF!!!

Friday's Friend: Dog Adoption, Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.

WOOF!! Barkingly pawsome, it's the weekend!  Hope you've got some great plans made which includes paws of fun! If not, maybe you need to consider dog adoption!

Do you like Chocolate?  My human does. Milk Chocolate or dark Chocolate is the best, he says.  I'm not allowed to have Chocolate because it's dangerous for dogs!  Could hurt me more than a taste is even worth- but what about Chocolate Labrador Retrievers?   BARK? arf?

My friend, "Lab Lady" from the Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc. has introduced me to a 2 year old, 73 lbs., Chocoloate Labrador Retriever named "Camo-"

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
Camo must go to a home with a fenced yard and NO electric fences!  WOOF!  He needs a yard, so no townhouses, condos or apartments would work for this guy.

Camo was given up to Lab Rescue, due to his owners health issues.

A very happy guy, he gets along well with everyone including the foster's resident dogs and cat.  He loves to be around his humans- so he'd do best with a family who is home more often than not.

(C) Lab Rescue of L.R.C.P., Inc.
Camo enjoys playing with tennis balls, sticks, toys and wants a yard that he can run and romp around in!  He's making progress learning leash skills but an "Easy Walk Harness" is recommended for this strong guy!!  WOOF!!

He is house and crate trained.  Camo sleeps great in his crate and can be found napping under his foster mother's desk while she's working!

A guy who is eager to please his humans, he's working on commands.  Further  training should be pawingly easy as he is one smart and eager to please dog!

Camo is good with other dogs, big and small, and is approved for cats as he used to live with 2.  He is excellent with children and approved for age 5 and older.

He tested positive for Lyme disease and he's on 30 days of antibiotics to cure it. He is current on vaccines!

WOOFly, if you are thinking about a hunk of Chocolate- introduce yourself to Camo!
