"Wednesday, 1/11/17, was Sawyer's 6th birthday! I'm not really sure if it is his birthday since he is a rescue, but it is the day I picked to celebrate his birthday. He had doggie birthday cake which he scarfed down, then relaxed and went to sleep with an antler growing out of his snout, lol."

CHELSEA UPDATE 8/31/16:

Chelsea's Dad just informed us:

Chelsea was snake trained just after I got her. This morning while walking a 20 ft wide gravel road, she suddenly she swerves left, ears down....ALERT..sure enough, rattlesnake.

On the way back, same thing only the snake is gone. This time, she's on leash, and pulled ME away. She smelled Senor Snake 20 minutes after he left.

Good dog!

This article appeared recently in the Hospice newsletter about "Tank" whose name, at the time of his adoption, was Toby. He joined the Girardin household back in 2007 and is now soon to be 9 years old. Thanks to Sharon's dedication to training, Tank also holds many obedience titles. Quite a few of our adopted dogs serve their community in some fashion, utilizing their inherent sensitivity and intelligence.

Thanks, Sharon, for sharing..we knew Tank was special
