Hi Michele. I've seen progress for the better overall but sometimes it does seem slow, and still not fair to all breeds. And I believe I did spell your name correctly below? One "L" correct? Sorry if I got it wrong. Take Care.
Hi Michele. I remember seeing a comment in the New Mexican last year saying people should be required to prove they are worthy pet owners and fill out an application when they register their pets - which most people don't do anyway - and somehow Animal Services would need to do home checks or something they obviously have no time to do now. But maybe if the pet over population problem ever gets under control and shelters aren't bursting at the seams and having to reduce adoption fees to make space for the next 100, there will be more strict screening and crack downs on backyard breeders and unaltered animals. But not sure if I'll ever see that in my lifetime. But things are slowly turning for the better in places like Denver where SN has been quite successful and sometimes their shelters are < 50% full. Santa Fe some day? So glad to hear the famale has been spayed.
They're Icelandics. A gaited breed. Both originally from Iceland. Mine are not the highest quality , but wonderful nonetheless. I took Sokki and another Icey I had, Gymir, on an attempted ride across the US in 2001. Went with another woman who had mules. My horses did just as well as her mules. I packed one and rode the other, alternating every other day. Was on the road for 4 months when my partner fell off her mule and broke her pelvis. I decided to pack it in and come on home. But what an adventure!
Jager isn't mine, but if you check out Stacy Dunning, he is her dog.
Thanks for the nice thoughts about ADW. It is a special organization and I'm really happy to be associated with them.
Thanks for the welcome...
Thanks Michele.....hope to see you at our "gold buying" fundraiser for Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary. Next Sat, Aug 14th at The Center For Spiritual Living. Please let me know if you have questions......we should have fun and it is for a wonderful cause. WIN-WIN1
Hi Michelle, thanks SO much for your offer to foster dear Bruce! Unfortunately he is a cat chaser. Would they be in the same area, or do you have a separate space for Bruce. I'm looking for a quiet place with limited exercise since he leg is still so vulnerable. Again, I appreciate your support! Let me know if this could work in some way...Amy
