On Monday evening while driving home from shows Luke had an accident that totaled our truck. He was driving just outside of La Grande Oregon when the driver outside real dual tire blew causing Luke to loose control. Our assistant Stephane was taken by ambulance to the local hospital for a fractured vertebrae, multiple cuts, stitches and a concussion evaluation; luckily Stephane will be ok. Luke and first responders worked tirelessly for two hours to get to the dogs, using the jaws of life to pry open the back garage door. This was the longest 2 hours of my life waiting to hear if the dogs were alive. Miraculously the dogs were all alive and only 1 dog had a minor injury to his foot. The dogs were all in their IMPACT crates, I have no doubt that is why they are all here today.

The impact crates quite simply saved their lives. These crates are amazing and I am so thankful all 9 dogs were each in one. As bad as this all is we are counting our blessings today as this could have been so much worse... stuff can be replaced, family can not be. Rowan Baggenstos


Woman and her dog struck, killed while on foot on I-95 in Va.
by Martin Weil, April 10.

A woman and her dog were killed Saturday night on Interstate 95 in Virginia when the dog escaped from the woman’s car and she chased it, authorities said. State police said the incident occurred in Stafford County about 10 p.m. about a mile south of Exit 136. Katie M. Mason, 28, of Stafford, was headed south in a 2007 Toyota when the vehicle ran off the road and struck a guardrail, authorities said. After the impact, her dog fled from the vehicle. Mason chased the dog into the southbound lanes of the highway, police said. A southbound 2012 Honda was unable to avoid striking Mason as she ran through a travel lane, police said. She died at the scene. The dog was struck as well, and fatally injured.
