  • Fostering Bella

    Miss Bella.  Christmas Eve saw Midnight’s departure with his new family. They had their hands full, and wanted to return him on Christmas Day. The wonderful adoption coordinator talked them off the ledge, and as I hear it (from the adopters), they’re totally smitten with him. That was a giant relief. We had plans for […]

  • Fostering Midnight

    After Gizmo left, it became pretty aggressively clear that I can’t be alone in a house with no dog. I emailed our contact at Lab Rescue, and i got this back: Hi, Jesse. I have a gorgeous black boy ready for you at Towson. His name is Midnight. 18 months old, 65 pounds, and got […]

  • Fostering Gizmo

    I received an email on November 11 from the foster coordinator of Lab Rescue LRCP about Gizmo, a 5 year old black lab male who was freaking out in the Vet in Towson. Laura and I were slated to watch Doogie and Marley (see their post below) from December 5-15, so we were apprehensive, but […]

      I received an email on Friday, 10/17/2015, about a bonded pair of pups that needed a foster. They were called “DOOGIE/MO” and “MARLEY” in the system. I have a giant crate, but we needed another so I ran out and bought another. We expected the boys on 10/19, but they were apparently stricken with […]

  • Another transport

    I did another transport yesterday. It is really a great experience… If you have a car and a half a tank of gas, you should try!  I met a dog, Ryder, who basically wanted to be AS CLOSE AS POSSIBLE to me. He was absolutely adorable! Additionally, I actually transported a Tibetan Mastiff (maybe.. who […]

  • Veterinary Blood Donation

    Ganon gave blood today for the 3rd time. When dogs need surgery, they often need blood transfusions, in a very similar way to humans. They get this blood from many sources, but a big one (just like humans) is blood donation. We use Blue Ridge Veterinary Blood Bank. The process is pretty easy, you fill […]

  • Dogs XL / Rescue Road Warriors – First Trip

    So, just this past Sunday evening, I took a trip to Harrisburg, PA to transport some dogs from the Rescue Road Warriors team to the Dogs XL Rescue. I picked up two passengers, Abby the Belgian Malinois (P17) and Mattix the fox-red Golden Retriever (P15). That may have been Mattix, Maddox, Maticks, or Mattox. I’m not […]
