Rocky is quite the handsome boy and would LOVE to go home with you…
Dear Fellow Dog Lovers,
I’ve decided to change my blog opener, and begin by posting my favorite picture of the week. Today’s picture is of Rocky. I caught him just after a great walk with a volunteer. More on this good boy a little later.
It was a busy week at the shelter since my last post. There were twelve dog adoptions, eight of them were Blog Dogs.
Jacks had been waiting quite a while for his perfect family, but as you can see by the pictures below, they found him!
I can’t wait to meet you!
Rocky had a great time on Sunday with volunteer Tim, and I was so happy to see him smiling! When I had taken my first photos of him, he had been so serious. Rocky is a six-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix who has been waiting for a new home since May 11…

Help save the Heber wild horses…
We’re sharing some comments regarding the Heber wild horses suggested on Arizona advocate Jill Irvin’s Terra Wind Ranch facebook page.
The Heber Allotment Environmental Assessment is out and comments are due THIS FRIDAY.
“Heber Grazing Allotment Analysis #43442 Public Comment”

Some talking points:
1) The NO grazing alternative is the least expensive.
The document requests structural and nonstructural improvements totaling over $4 million dollars and does not indicate a specific funding source. The document states, ““Projects such as these have the potential to be multi-financed between several partners, such as AZGFD, wildlife groups, permittee, and the Forest Service.” We can assume that taxpayers will be responsible for all if not most of the costs unless they tell us otherwise.
2) The NO grazing alternative has the greatest potential to stimulate…

Your new best friend is waiting for you…
Dear Fellow Dog Lovers,
It always makes Willamette Humane Society’s staff and volunteers happy when there are many dogs adopted in a week. This week there were twenty-one! But what makes us all over the moon is when a dog who has been waiting and hoping for a new home for an extra-long time is finally found by just the right family. I’m thrilled to report that there were TWO of these adoptions yesterday!
Sweet Pea is an eight-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix who had been waiting for a new beginning since March 13th. She had lived most of her life in a California garage until the S.T.A.R.T. team brought her to WHS. Everyone fell in love with this gentle old soul, but no one adopted her…until Monday. Here she is as she was about to head home. Can you tell she’s excited?

It took forever…
It took forever to find you.
I didn’t even know that I was looking.
But when you burst into my life
From that first moment
This was something special
Was the missing piece
That had eluded me.
The voice that had whispered to me during my days
And haunted my nights.
After all that waiting and wondering
After the bliss of finding you
Of being yours
Why would I let go now?

He was just catching fireflies…
He was just
catching fireflies for me
but what did
my young heart see
who took the light from the sky
and gave to no one
a boy who
gave me his smile
once in a while
to be on his team
these are silly
little girl things
silly things I remember
this is how
a little girl
falls in love
when a boy
the light from above
locks it in a jar
and tells her
to keep it close
to her heart
