Baltic's Harrowing Adventure
 2010-01-30 20:28:21-05

How this little German Shepherd mix got stuck on an ice floe adrift on the Baltic sea is not known.  But what we do know is that the crew of the Sea Fisheries Institute in Poland quickly snatched this boy from what could have been a lonely, freezing, and horrible death.  Just this past Monday, [...]


Rescue Ink on the Trail of a Dog Killer
 2010-01-31 19:38:17-05

Back in October 2009, two dogs named Emma and Luna were shot execution style, and deliberately positioned tail to tail next to railroad tracks in Pennsbury Township, PA a few miles from their home.   This case has been a frustrating one for the Chester County, PA SPCA.  After three long months of following leads with [...]


The Top Dogs of Super Bowl XLIV
 2010-02-07 10:52:13-05

It's Super Bowl Sunday!   It's the second biggest eating day of the year with parties galore, multi-million dollar commercials shown exclusively for the game, and this year's half-time act is The Who.  Even those like me who don't know the difference between a touchdown and a field goal, will be watching the game on TV. 

But [...]


Wow! That is one Armored Dog!
 2010-02-12 21:52:05-05

Working dogs for the Vancouver Winter Games are being outfitted with some uber-protection gear that can protect against bullets, Molotov cocktails, and a variety of knife blades.   These canine vests also contain  a wireless camera, speakers and an integrated microphone that allow the dog’s handler to see and issue commands via an integrated audio system.  Packed [...]


River's Rescue
 2010-02-13 21:30:27-05

River, the elusive, vagabond dog we reported previously has been rescued.  The cagey little pup gave up life on the run and is now safe and sound.  She will be examined by a vet and a permanent home will be sought for her.  She certainly gave residents out near Tucson's Riliato River a run for [...]


The Original Fido
 2010-02-15 09:35:41-05

Happy Presidents Day!  We have another "presidential" dog here.  A mixed breed that belonged to Abraham Lincoln. 

Abraham Lincoln is consistently considered by scholars the greatest U.S. President.  He led our country through the American Civil War, ended slavery, and declared Thanksgiving a Holiday!  But he can also be considered America's first true Animal Rescuer.  Abraham Lincoln was a sensitive [...]

Bobby Loggins, who last summer, punched his five-month-old American Bulldog 30 times in the face – killing it, has been convicted of Animal Torture.  In Iowa, Animal Torture is an aggravated misdemeanor that carries a sentence of up to two years in prison.  Just this past Friday, Judge Gary E. Wenell sentenced Bobby Loggins to 365 [...]


Arrest made in the Starved Dog case from Fort Bliss
 2010-02-25 20:49:30-05

This here is Heather O'Kelley, the *friend* of the Fort Bliss family who trusted her with Sadie.   Heather O'Kelley was arrested on charges of animal cruelty on February 3rd.  When these idiots are caught, I can tell you verbatim what they say.  And O'Kelley sung the age, old tune.  "I'm innocent.  Sadie wasn't my dog.  [...]


Finally! Miles Thomas and Baron back together!
 2010-02-26 21:45:43-05

After seven long months of legal wrangling, egos, and judicial reprimands, Miles Thomas has been reunited with his dog, Baron.  It took a mediated session last month by Magistrate Judge Martin C.

Good Lord.  Just when you think you've seen and heard it all, something comes along and smacks you right in the face.  Today it's lovely POS,  Danielle Graham.  Just this past Wednesday, 21-year-old Danielle Graham got mad at her boyfriend and threw his puppy into oncoming traffic.  The dog, a 3-month-old pit bull named Gucci, [...]

Dog Lover & Proud Pet Parent

I am passionate when it comes to my canine companions as well as dogs everywhere. It is my mission to raise awareness of any issues that affect them, from their health, food and nutrition and training to their welfare. Canine advocacy is something that everyone who cares about dogs needs to be aware of and we all need to share that and raise our voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

For the Love of the Dog is my small effort to do that.
Please, won't you help me!
