Pepper's headed back to Santa Fe!

Some of you may remember Pepper - he's the dog who helped rally a community to rescue him when he spent more than six months roaming the arroyos and streets of Santa Fe. Thanks to Steve and Yvette Dobbie and their Pepper's Posse, Pepper was rescued and found a beautiful sanctuary in Northern California. Unfortunately that sanctuary is no more and Steve and Yvette are once again there for Pepper. Steve picked up Pepper - the last of the animals at the sanctuary - to bring him…

Xena Update - April 9, 2015

As I'm leaving work yesterday, I get a phone call from 2 pre-pubescent boys. After asking if my dog was still missing, one of the boys demands to know if there is a reward. After I reply, "yes" to both questions, the child demands to know how much the reward is. I say, "does it matter?" He replies, "YES!" Unless I told him the reward amount, the only information he would give me is that they were at Alto Park with Xena. I hear the other boy in the background saying, "Dude, just tell…

3 Months - No Sign of Xena

I have lost 3 dogs in the past 8 months.  One to a rapid onset of ravenous cancer; one after 16 years of living a great life; and Xena who ran away after being spooked at the Frank Ortiz Dog Park on December 21st, 2014.  There is a BIG difference between losing an animal companion and knowing the outcome and the not knowing.  We still don't know what happened to Xena after 3 months and the lack of closure is hard to endure.  Alot of folks have been following this story, so, I felt compelled…

Coyote attacks

Just wanted to post a warning to anyone who walks the arroyo from Seville/Balboa Road (off of Don Gaspar between Cordova & San Mateo) - this arroyo goes under Old Pecos Trail and then leads you all the way to Museum Hill and the Botanical Gardens. TWO dogs - one a 75 lb. male Doberman and the other a 40 lb. 1/2 coyote female were attacked by two coyotes in the last 2 weeks. The owners were with the dogs and the coyotes came out of no where.…

Tales of Tails: The search for Xena: What to do when your dog is lost

By Hersch Wilson

Imagine: You’re walking your dog at the dog park, close to evening. Then, for reasons only your dog understands, she bolts. Gone. In less than a minute. You call her, nothing.

Frantic, you begin searching in circles. But then the sun goes down and you’re alone in the dark.

What do you do…

Xena Update

Hersch Wilson published an article today in, "Tales of Tails" in the SF New Mexican.  I am so grateful for his empathy, friendship and literary gift.  Xena is still missing and there have been no calls or tips in about 2 weeks.  Sloan and Julie have been so helpful and supportive; updating flyers with neon date stickers and tirelessly looking.  There are, in fact, SO many empathetic and helpful animal lovers in this wonderful town.  I have met many of them.  They inspire me to keep hope…

Xena is Still Missing

There is no feeling like this.  The not knowing where Xena is produces so many questions; is she dead or alive?  Is she sheltered from the cold and with someone, hiding or still running? If so, where? And then there's the guilt.  Was I not sensitive enough to her comfort level at the dog park?  Should I have had a…

There is no feeling like this.  The not knowing where Xena is produces so many questions; is she dead or alive?  Is she sheltered from the cold and with someone, hiding or still running? If so, where? And then there's the guilt.  Was I not sensitive enough to her comfort level at the dog park?  Should I have had a leash on her, just in case?  Two ads on Craigslist, one in the New Mexican, daily visits and calls to the Shelter and frequent social media updates. Heavy duty flyers have been…
