I Rescued A Human Today
Author:Janine Allen CPDT
Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her. I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid.
As she stopped at my kennel I blocked her view from a little accident I had in the back of my cage. I didn't want her to know that I hadn't been walked today. Sometimes the shelter keepers get too busy and I didn't want her to think poorly of them.
As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life. She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me.
Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.
Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms. I would promise to keep her safe. I would promise to always be by her side. I would promise to do everything I could to see that radiant smile and sparkle in her eyes. I was so fortunate that she came down my corridor. So many more are out there who haven't walked the corridors. So many more to be saved. At least I could save one.
I rescued a human today.

3) We raised awareness of Animal Shelter and animal welfare needs & issues
4) I received 798 write-in votes from the Pet World on my PET-ition for Dog-Governor of New Mexico.
So in this humble dog-pinion, NOT TOO BULLY BAD!!!!!
And now that I am the new duly elected Dog-Governor of New Mexico...I will take my new role in continuing to promote these good causes and act as your very own Dog-Bassador of the Animal World here in New Mexico

Well, we had a busy day in Taos last weekend, but it didn't end there! We continued tracking on over to Chama to help out the four-footed kids there and the Chama Valley Humane Society.
You know, it's dog-gorgeous in Chama this time of the year! Look at this Color wouldja?!
We took this project on with the partnership of Mountainview Mall....and Christy, the resident Canine, helped me out! Thanks bunches of dog biscuits, Christy!
We had friendly passers-by visit with us, and drop some dollars in the donation box...some off the last Train ride of the Season, some enjoying Fall foliage, and some local area folks.We were glad to help out the Chama Valley Humane Society a bit...and we gathered more votes for the dog-GUV-2-BE too!

It was Volunteer Day at Rio Rancho's Watermelon Mountain Ranch....where All Who Enter Here Will Find Love. So....I thought I'd join in on the good cause by holding a Canine Campaign on the spot. Well, let me tell you...if you've never visited this great organization....doggone it..get your paws in gear and head over to check out this snazzy Animal Rescue Resort.
Resort you say? Well, not exactly, but let me tell you....it is one fine and dog-dandy place to stay till these critters get a forever home and family. There are cozy little 'canine cottages' for the pups waitin' for a family...look at these digs would ya?
There's the Rabbit Hutch for wayward bunnies...Miss Muffet's Garden
and one snazzy home-away-from-home for those kute little kittens at the Catnip Inn. Check out this kitty dream home scene would ya? Pretty cat-tastic if you ask me! Here's Abigail...VOLUNTEER Extraordinaire...helping out in the Cat House! Way to go Abby! All us animals love your giving spirit!
And finally......some folks might JUST be lookin' for that very special pot-belly pig pet!!! Well...if that would be you...then Watermelon Ranch has your dream pet awaitin'.....3 pot belly pigs to choose from...there's Thelma and Louise....and then there is the very portly piglet-Louie! Can you believe those choices?
Yup....I LUVed Volunteer Day at Watermelon Mountain Ranch...and I loved my special tour by Animal Specialist Gabe...who is pretty dog-tastic fabulous in my books! He knows how to take care of these special critters...till they find their permanent home and family.
All the good folks at Watermelon Ranch are love-bugs to animals...and they've got my vote for sure!
If you want to help them out....here's how you might just be able to do that!
1) adopt one of these lovelee pets either from the ranch or at a PetSmart adoption day
2) Donate some bones and bucks.......check out their website for details on the many ways to do this...from donations..to Harley raffles...to attending the 2010 Fur Ball on November 6th.
Any way you choose........everyone comes out a winner.
and hey...tell 'em Travelin' Jack sent you! They've got my 5-paws Animal Welfare Rating....and as you know..it just doesn't get any better than that...doggone it!

Yup, I'm throwin' my paw into the race....and raising awareness and $s for my 4-footed furry friends with New Mexico's great animal welfare organizations!
The BIG ANNOUNCEMENT was made Sunday at the Albuquerque Balloon
Museum. With lots of pomp and circumstance....just for this li'l ol' pup!
And I must say, it was one grand bash...what with my official band, SAGE,
my grand entrance with the Tin Lizzy Club of Albuquerque,
a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony with 5 great animal organizations...and my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT.
Of course it wudda been nothin' without my loyal fans, both the human kind and the 4 footed variety.
But the best part of it all....we started my CANINE CAMPAIGN off with a bang! We adopted 5 cute little puppies to new forever families, we raised about $600 for the 5 animal organizations...and I entertained over 500 people and pets!
Not a bad day for this pupparoo....and now I am ready to hit the road and the CANINE CAMPAIGN TRAIL.
