Looking Back

The other day I spent some time looking for something in my posts that I needed info on. I started from the beginning here on the blog.
It was a trip down memory lane.
There were happy and sad posts as well as the announcements of events and fund raisers.
And of course the many posts about my boy Sir!

It's wonderful to be able to look back and remember what took place. What the hopes and dreams were and the relationships that were fostered and lost.
But I guess like most things, people and situations change.

If you are a believer that we all come into this world with a purpose it makes the changes somewhat easier to accept. We all have a job to do, a lesson to learn or teach. And so it goes.

But it is sometimes hard to accept the loss of friends that you felt close to. This is life in general I guess. Albeit in my Civil War Re-enactment community, the Horse Rescue, etc. I have lost people that were like family. And that is the hardest part to move on from........

And to that end I say to those individuals; Thanks for being a part of my life. Thanks for teaching me valuable lessons about humanity and other things.
I sometimes miss you out of thin air. And honestly, there are times that you are not even a thought. But you will always remain a part of my life's history and what I have become to this point in my life.

I hope someday our paths cross and we can reminisce about the times that we had together, good and bad and look back with fondness and thanks!

Until next time!

Horse at Homeward Horse & Hound Of Mississippi Needs help

Here is the post from Homeward Horse and Hound.....

Trax can’t catch a true break. We were almost home free. He has a home offer. His foster reported him being a little snotty so we asked the vet to check him out when she pulled a new coggins on him. 

Impacted adult teeth. X-rays will be taken next week to see what we are facing. X-rays will be roughly $200. Dealing with the problem? On the low end, $400-$600. On the high end? 
Possibly $1000 if extensive.

This isn’t something we can hoist on his would be adopters. And it’s not something we can do on our own. So we are begging. Please, please help us get Trax over this final hurdle so we can get him home.

I’m going to dig through the stuff we have for auction and post it on the auction page shortly and see if we can raise some funds for him that way. Also will add a donate button on this post.

(His eyes aren’t swollen shut, he just had them closed when the picture snapped).

A day of disappointment and sadness....UPDATE

Well as many of you who follow me on Facebook already know we adopted our Freya!

She is a Potcake from the Bahamas.
Click below for more info on the breed
About Potcakes

She is amazing to say the least. She is 6 months old and smart as a whip. A bit too smart at times LOL.
She asks to go out and do her business around 99% of the time.
Lynn has taught her to sit and beg, which didn't take long. In fact it was within the first week that she was with us, and she learned the reprimand "NO" as well.
She is already the Queen of the roost....well Wolfie reminds her now and then that he is still the King. 😄.
She is a ball of energy....typical Puppy wanting to play and explore. She loves to run in our backyard. She reminds me of a dog that we had years ago. Punkin> She was a German Short-haired Pointer/Irish Setter mix. She could run like a Gazelle!
Freya is the same.....All you see is a white flash!

Amazingly enough she was in the same kennel with the original dog that we had tried to adopt. And she was the dog that was carried out to us the day that we went to pick up the first one.
I guess we were blind to the signs that the Universe was sending us....."HELLO....THIS IS THE DOG THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE!!!!! " 
And she was and is! She keeps Wolfie moving....he tries so hard to play with her but his age just won't let him. But he gives it his best shot just the same.
He has stopped the crying that he had been doing since his buddy Griffin crossed the Rainbow Bridge and that is a good thing.
He seems content with her, and they look for each other already when one is outside or they are not together.

So the old saying that it's meant to be holds true in this case.
This was truly meant to be!

Until next time! I am.....

A day of disappointment and sadness

Hi all

As some of you know my wife and I have been looking for a dog to adopt into our home. Wolfie, our dog who we rescued 6-7 years ago, needs a pal. Since his pack mate Griffin passed he has been sad. He still lies in a position where he can see the front door and he cries. When he sees other dogs his tail starts wagging and he gets all excited to play with them.  Recently his buddy Doogan had to be put to sleep.
He enjoyed going to my sister in-law's house to play with his bud Doogan. And now, sadly, he doesn't have that any longer.

So last Saturday we went to a couple of rescues and did a face time with another in hopes of finding the right one to give a Fur-ever Home to.
And we did find one! We instantly fell in love with her! We submitted the application on the spot and received a call during the week that we were approved and she was ours. A follow up call a couple of days later told us that she had been spayed and we could pick her up on Saturday.

So Lynn went to the pet store and bought her a collar and a leash, etc. We were so excited to bring our little girl home. People at my job were congratulating me and wishing me luck, and some were genuinely happy and excited for Lynn and I.

Friday night sleep was not to be had! I felt like a kid on Christmas Eve. In fact I was up and ready to go hours before we were to leave. Lynn even commented and chuckled how she had not seen me this excited and involved in a dog adoption in a long time.

We arrived at the shelter and were told that they would bring her out to meet our dog Wolfie. But the dog that they brought out was not her. Even the Kennel Supervisor questioned it as he was walking towards us, He said that he thought that we wanted the other pup. He went back to the kennel to get her for us. Minutes passed and it seemed like an eternity. We knew then that something wasn't right. There we were standing in the cold with Wolfie waiting for the pup to be brought out.

Then the words that we knew were coming and dreaded were spoken. Some how through an error she had been adopted the day before by someone else and the people refused to give her back.
I ran the gamut of emotions......We had only been with this Pup for maybe 15 minutes the week before but the feeling of sadness was as if we had had her for years.

The rescue took my cell number and said they would continue to call the people who had her. They were leaving messages because they weren't answering their phone. So we came back home with hopes that we would get a call with positive news.

That news never came........Lynn called them to follow up and we were told that there was nothing that we could do. The people had threatened the rescue with lawyers and you can figure out the rest.
However, in an effort to make it right, the rescue offered us a free adoption. They are getting more dogs in next week and we will be afforded an opportunity to choose one.

It still doesn't take away the sadness. But it's something.

Lynn and I have always been strong believers in that the animals we have had and will have always come to us. They choose us. And honestly we have been blessed over the years with the most incredible animals that have come to us in that way.

So next Saturday we'll go and see if any of them chooses us.....we will never know what life would have been like with that precious little one....but one thing that we do know is that she is in her Fur-ever home and not in a shelter.

Remember......"Adopt.....Don't Shop!!"

My First Adoption Appeal. Starring Olivia!

Please help us find Olivia a home!!

Please see the comments below from Elizabeth ( A Volunteer at Islip Animal Shelter)

Olivia has been at the shelter for close to a year. She desperately deserves a chance with a loving family or individual.
I honestly believe she is one of the sweetest, all around "Diamond in the RUFF" !

Olivia really needs a chance because prior to arriving at the shelter, her life was not an easy one and yet she always keeps her bright and sunny disposition.

 I am offering to cover Olivia’s adoption fees for the family or individual who is truly interested in giving her a loving home.
Olivia is available for adoption  Islip Animal Shelter & Adopt a Pet Center
Please feel free to contact me on Facebook Elizabeth on Facebook, and hit your SHARE button to pass Olivia’s story forward. 

It only takes one small positive step to make something great happen. Thank you all😊😉


There you have it! I met Olivia during our search for a dog. She truly is a big mush! You can feel her happiness. My wife called her a leaner. You know the kind of dog that leans into your leg when you are petting it. Like they can't get close enough to you 😉

Please give Olivia consideration!

What to do???

Hi everyone

Over the past few months I have been thinking of what this Blog should be about. I have asked some people for ideas and to date have not received any.

I feel like I want to broaden the scope of it beyond just the one rescue and to maybe use it for a spring board for multiple rescues and shelters.
There are so many animals that need our help, both financially and voluntarily and this may just be another vehicle to bring attention to those particular animals and their rescues and shelters.

Don't get me wrong, North Shore Horse Rescue and Sanctuary will always be near and dear to my heart and my main fund raising focus. However, there are others that are in need of attention as well.

So going forward, in memory of Sir, I will post about horses, dogs, cats, etc. that need to be adopted, sponsored, fostered, etc.
If you have a fund raiser that you wish to promote, an animal that is in need, a shelter or rescue that has an urgent case, send the information to my email address and I will post it here.
Send it to I may eventually get a dedicated email address for this purpose.

Please comment here and let me know what your thoughts are about this new spin.

Thanks for reading!

I remain
