One Tail at a Time

I love when I “meet” folks who commit to finding loving homes for animals in need.

This is Rudie, (isn’t he gorgeous?) a spokes-doggie for One Tail at a Time of Chicago Illinois, sporting a ballsy bandana and spreading the word about the importance of spaying and neutering you pet.

One Tail at a time is a no-kill shelter with this mission statement:

One Tail at a Time is a no-kill, all-breed dog rescue that serves to lower euthanasia rates in the greater Chicagoland area and provide education on the humane treatment of companion animals. The rescue concentrates its efforts on dogs that are in danger of being euthanized, or that are physically and/or mentally deteriorating in a shelter environment, works to rehabilitate them, and then matches each dog with a permanent home. Focused on the “pack mentality”, One Tail at a Time offers fosters and adopters continued support and education on how best to keep dogs happy, healthy and part of the family.

Kudos to One Tail at a Time rescue and the volunteers who give these dogs, and their humans, a second chance at finding love.


Country Dog in the City

Posh and I headed to Chicago this weekend to visit some good friends and family.

I’m always amazed how well my little “country dog” does in the “big city.”  Meanwhile,  I was cursing myself because I left my camera at home.  Fortunately, the almighty iPhone came to the rescue and was able to take a few crappy shots.

Posh and I met tons of Chicago party animals during our stay, including a lovely neighborhood cat named Inca and a beautiful brindle rescued greyhound.  I was partial to the greyhound because Posh’s coloring is also classified as “brindle.”  He was as sweet as sugar.

I found this great little pet boutique called Zulu off Lincoln Avenue.  It was absolutely adorable and a convenient walk from my darling cousin Danielle’s apartment.  Danielle and her husband Dan are owned by two lovely rescue boys Dodger and Oswald.  Thanks to some encouraging words from Dan and Danielle I visited the shop and left some of my sample cards.  Hopefully, I will hear from them soon.

It was a great weekend visiting folks and animals in The Windy City.  I adore Chicago, but there really is no place like home.
