I greet each day inside my cage
And wait for God to write my page
I wonder if youíll come today?
And let me feel the light of day
My whole life has been dark with pain
And those who caused it--what did they gain?
They stole my trust, my livelihood
And all because they simply could
I yearn to run through scented fields
Without a cage and lock to yield
To chase a squirrel that can't be caught
To earn a love that can't be bought
But the darkest days have a light
In the quiet mornings that follow night
You come to visit every day
Without a motive, without a pay
You carried me when I was weak
Brought trust I was too pained to seek
You healed my wounds that took their toll
You rescued my slowly dying soul
And now I listen for your voice
Knowing that you're here by choice
You didnít know me at the start
And yet Iím planted in your heart
Iím learning to accept your praise
And not avert my fearful gaze
Forgive me if I cower still
My life has been against my will
I feel that you are growing tired
Within this fight that youíve been mired
If you can keep your doubts at bay
It would mean the world if you could stay
I canít predict how this will end
But I know this of you, my friend
You selflessly all played your part
You saved me with your tender heart

The Cavalier King
These wonderful adoring babies
almost lost their life because of irresponsible breeders, same story, different
They sacrificed themselves, producing puppy after puppy, lining the pockets of the breeder/miller
If you breed, and do not give medical care, love and
nuturing..there is only one word to use "****"
These sweethearts, originally came from Arizona, and relocated to Idaho, where the "breeder" was
not allowed to have more than 3 dogs. She sent the boys back to Arizona, to continue their life
as Stud dogs. The girls she was going to put down. Since if she can't make money off of them
might as well KILL them. A wonderful rescue in Idaho, wanted to help, and contacted
us. Even though we are full, we could not let these dogs lose their lives!!!
Their bills have been VERY high, totally to date over $2100 and rising.

This girl cracks me up, she has made it her agenda, to find every toy she can, my shoes,
slippers, has found her "own" place on our couch, surrounded by her treasures.
She does not chew them up, or destroy anything, she just likes to be surrounded by
her finds. I cannot even bring myself to reprimand her, as she will look at me with
her huge eyes, and wag her tail and cover me in kisses...besides I always know where
to find my shoes:-)
Every dog is now on
antibiotics, and different ear meds.
All have been applied with revolution, to kill any other critters
that might have hitchhiked along.
All need a day at the spa, once their stitches have healed.
Now I am asking once again, can you please help us, to pay
their overwhelming vet bills, and other rising costs that will
occur...they deserve a new life now..they deserve happiness and
Sheeba, Lovey and Kissey are fostered in Blaine, WA
Pokey and Colleen in Bellingham, WA
