"Angel (second from left) and Jaro (right) celebrate their second birthday today. We have had them here for two months and they are doing so, so very well!
Thank you Sharron Hurlbert for bringing them to us, it was a long trip for you, and thank you Annie Davis for knowing when the time to find a home for them was due. They are the sweetest and dearest and we will live longer and care for them a very long time. Gumbo (left-his nose it not that long) is their director, and Sanji is happy that Gumbo has two more to keep him busy."

Cheryl Silver’s Hank got a new sister. “Amber--an 11-year old Airedale rescue. She is a very overweight angel and she absolutely loves the world. Yesterday she woke Hank up by licking his eyes and ears as he slept on the couch. She is a total wiggle bottom who, unfortunately, had her tail chopped off like a rottie's J but her heart is enormous.”

Kathryn Ladick added a stripey puppy, Diva, to the family, Jaroufa's Glamazon at Rift Valley.
