We were all excited when Moniot moved in and focused on Las Vegas. We are sad to see her go. The lesson here is that WE ARE out in the communities, with our butts in the wind, saving dogs (and cats and other animals), spending out-of-pocket, taking the "hits", working with whomever will help us ~help the next dog~. So, thank you Mary, for the acknowledgment, we do consider ourselves partners in "overage control" and, for myself, work ever harder for better relationships in rescue!

Thanks Donna! Well, thanks to Ben's article, I will be sleeping tonight with only my labrador, Bear and Colt, the little horse. Colt would have had a home but he decided to jump the ladies fence..three times in an hour..she brought him back and Beau the Border Collie pup and Miss Mindie are happily sleeping on the same dog bed in Pecos! And no one is sleeping in mine-but ME! Thanks Ben and everyone, for your support.
