Its been forever since I last wrote anything or blogged anything of real importance but today I was tested. On my last work journey of this season my courage was tested, either step up or fail everything I stand for. Never in my life have I seen such horrible action to an animal be done in front of my very eyes. A dog in a little duffel bag. I see its little snout searching for a way out. A first I thought I was plan tripping out. Traveling way too early. Then I really see it. I jump up run over to an officer explain what I see beg him to act and he shrugs me off. Does nothing as she hides the bag deep into her things! I’m horrified! Talking as loud as I can to make something happen. He tells me not to worry they are already kicking her out of the station. Wtf!? That does not help the innocent creature she’s suffocating in her bag! Nothing happens I’m told to mind my business as she and her man drag out tshir things calling me a cunt as they do so. I should’ve done what I first wanted to. Open the bag myself but I trusted that turning to the proper authority was better. Bull shit. Union station will always be a place where I failed myself and an animal that I could’ve saved. Should’ve saved.

Sweet Penny (#A080341) is a spayed boxer mix. She is two years old and her owners gave her up and she’s really sad in the shelter. She has special needs in that she is deaf so an experienced owner is needed.
Out playing and hiking with Boy the day after getting him back home. My brother (in the picture works out of state with me).
Is it my ears? Do they scare you? I didn’t want them cut off either, but it wasn’t my choice and now everyone seems to be intimidated by me. All I want to do is LOVE you. When you walk in the door Ill literally jump in your arms to be held and since I’m so small it’s pretty easy to carry me! Im only 35lbs! I may look like a wild hyena but I’m actually just your typical friendly pitty except with a whole lot of spunk. If you say doggie walk Ill jump from couch to couch until you give me a sit or stay command. Doggie walks get me so PUMPED. Don’t want to walk me? That’s fine too as long as you’re ok with sharing the blanket because I LOVE getting under the covers and curling up close to my human friends. Please don’t let my different look influence your opinion on me, I swear I’m the sweetest girl. Other animals annoy me because I love having all of the attention but I love Mikey so much I wouldn’t mind having a submissive brother but my owners would have to be pittie experienced and since I love my crate so much I need to stay In there when I’m home alone. All I want is a family to call my own so my foster mom can save another life. Please give me a chance! You can meet me by filling out an adoption application at www.biggiesbullies.org

Ruff ruff! My name is Simone. My Animal ID is ISO-1. I am a young female Pit Bull. I was an owner surrender so I really need you. If you can’t rescue me, even just pledging a few dollars for my rescue is good enough!
A volunteer writes: Owner surrender on 2/16. Available for immediate adoption. Unfortunately, the previous owner did not leave any information on this sweet dog. We can tell you this, she is a total love bug! Simone doesn’t no she is a little bit too big to be held, but she loves to be in someone’s arms! She had visitors and did well with everyone, children included. Simone was sitting pretty for her treats. We hope this dog finds a home soon, we love her already, and you will too.
