Scully, Dovi and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas...
We hope you enjoy this beautiful rendition of Silent Night by a great maestro- Cesar Amaro.

I posted several months ago about a tiny kitten who was put in an oven and baked to death.
Her name was Tiger Lily and here is her photo. This is an update from IDA- In Defense of Animals.
After nearly five months of repeated adjournments, IDA was pleased by the strong prosecution of 17-year-old Cheyenne Cherry who, along with a 14-year-old juvenile accomplice, roasted a helpless kitten to death in May “as a joke” against a former roommate.
Just as progress on the case appeared to stall with multiple adjournments, IDA learned in November that the defendant’s prior plea deal had been rejected. After re-evaluating Cherry’s plea bargain with the Bronx County Supreme Court, Judge Margaret Clancy withdrew the agreement, determining it was illegal to reduce a violent felony charge to a non-violent charge.
Ms. Cherry’s initial plea bargain was rejected and prosecutors offered a new agreement in which she could plead guilty to animal cruelty in exchange for two years in prison.
Thanks to you, the court received hundreds of letters in response to this cruel case. Clearly, the voice of the public helped bring attention to the seriousness of this case and the need for strong prosecution. Though nothing will ever undo the terrible suffering of this poor kitten, prosecutors and the judge were enlightened about the importance of bringing charges of animal cruelty, along with a stiff sentence.
IDA encourages brief letters of thanks (no e-mails please) to the prosecutors and the judge:
RE: Cheyenne Cherry

Unfortunately, there are millions of dogs and cats, roly-poly puppies and fluffy kittens who don't have a home...who may be euthanized tomorrow...because they are unwanted. It's a travesty...

Scully, Dovi and Whiskers thank you...so do the beautiful, loving animals you'll save...

As a wonderful note, we celebrated 10 years together, yesterday, November 15th, 2009. Of course, I was teary-eyed, remembering the first time I saw him at the Animal Shelter in Warren. He was so tiny and shy....so emaciated but sweet. When I gently placed him in the front seat next me, he sat there as if he'd always been there. It was beautiful, the ride home...he fell asleep in the sun- Goodness knows I have DOZENS of photos of him just sleeping in the sun...He never wanted to leave my side...We'll discuss separation anxiety in another post! ;)
He's barking at me as I write this, so I'll close and go play with him...isn't that what it's all about- enjoying the moments as they happen?

You see, she pulled up to where we were in the park. I had Scully on his little leash and he was happily smelling everything he could and marking every signpost we could get to. The lady saw us as we walked by her car. She opened the back hatch of her SUV but held her dogs until we walked what she thought would be "far enough" away.
We were at one of Scully's favorite signs when all of a sudden he jerked his head and began growling...I looked where he was looking and, to my horror, this huge dog was running off his leash and straight for Scully...with the lady shouting, "He's okay...he's okay...He won't bite." As I screamed back to her "You don't understand...please get your dog...you don't understand...", I bent down to get Scully but got tangled in his leash. As I picked him up, I lost my balance and fell over...the large dog was jumping on me, trying to get to him and I fell, dropping him out of my arms...Scully screamed as he landed and rolled. I twisted my back trying not to land on him...the lady grabbed her dog- she'd managed to get the other dog back in the car and kept telling me her dog wouldn't bite...Ofcourse I had blood all over me...She kept holding her dog back as he tried to get to Scully...Scully was turning and scratching me, trying to get to her dog...
The whole point of this story...is that though I wasn't sure about the biting, big dogs DO like to PLAY with little dogs...They think they're puppies so they roll them around and cause damage to their little backs...spines....discs...With Scully's past back problems I was TERRIFIED that he'd be paralyzed...which would lead me to consider the horrible decision no pet guardian ever wants to make...
So...Large Dog people who are reading this...please don't be offended....I love your dogs...As far as i'm concerned all dogs are wonderful. It's humans who turn a dog bad. Scully probably loves your dogs and would love to play...but he's probably a lot older than your playful big guy...so please...keep the leash by your side and don't let your big dogs play with the little guys, even though they're cute and it seems like no harm done...'cause down the road...the little guys will more than likely pay for it...and end up down a road no one wants to take.
And I'm not angry at the lady...she was very nice and concerned for me. She just didn't know there's a big difference between "big dog play" and "little dog play." and Scully is as happy as a clam!

Hopefully you all had a great Fourth of July. We did.
Now...does anyone else have a dog who barks at airplanes to make sure they don't
land on the house? Well...Scully is an EXPERT at it! LOL
He runs to the edge of the property every time he hears a plane and barks at it- even if he can't see it. His hair stands up along the middle of his back like a little stripe and he barks and barks. Naturally, the plane flies away and he watches and listens to make sure it's gone...and gets in one last bark- as if to say.. " and don't come back!!" He scratches the ground all proud of himself and trots about his business...checking out new smells, etc.
I have to say, proudly, we've never had a plane land on the roof, thanks to Ever-Vigilant Scully Boy!

I subscribe to the ASPCA newsletter and was so sickened, appalled, disgusted, infuriated that I had to post this...not to bitch about my feelings about this but to spread the word...you'll see why...
A 17 yr old girl from the Bronx was mad at her ex-roommate so she broke into her apartment, trashed the apartment and put her ex-roommate's KITTEN IN A HOT OVEN AND BURNED HER TO DEATH!! Neighbors COMPLAINED OF SMOKE COMING FROM THE APARTMENT...Firefighters found the remains of the dead kitten still cooking in the oven...The girl, Cheyenne Cherry admits to doing it because she hates cats!
READ THE ARTICLE HERE and FOLLOW THE LINK THAT GIVES YOU A LIST OF THINGS YOU CAN DO TO INTERVENE IF A CHILD OR TEEN IS ABUSING AN ANIMAL.
There is another organization called American Humane ...go there and read about the link between child abuse and animal cruelty...it's sickening but important to learn about.
I'm sorry this isn't a cute, fun post this evening about our hero, Scully...however, I've always suspected that in his early months, he was abused in horrific ways...I suspect this through his reactions to everyday things...
Please report any signs of animal or child abuse...They are counting on us to help...
I just can't write anymore. My heart and prayers go out to the poor girl who lost her beloved in such a cruel, heinous way.

There were little ice cream cups called Hoodsies, too...Vanilla ice cream and a wooden sppon that was really a spoon at all, but a flat spoon-shaped piece of wood...It was AWESOME! I found them at the grocery store the other day and had to buy a bag of eight.
Apparently, dogs love ice cream, too. Short, little Corgi-Chihuahuas especially. It would've been an adorable photo but my batteries were dead....Yes, there was Our Boy, Scully, licking the inside of the empty cup. Ever-so-gently, he carefully got every drop of vanilla ice cream that was left...He made that last almost 10 minutes! There was NOTHING in the cup when he started- or so I thought.
It looks like we're off to a fantastic summer...:::watching Scully lick the rest of the ice cream taste from his mouth.::: By the way, he's also waiting for pizza now....

I come across money-making opportunities on the web all the time..I want to make money to save animals, change laws, help the environment, and lots of good things. And keep Scully, Dovi and Whiskers in biscuits, treats and comfy beds...LOL
I just came across this website where an on-line multi-millionaire is teaching EXACTLY what he does to make his money through on-line video tutorials. Can you believe this? I'm thinking about signing up...Wanna join with me?

Most people don't know that besides horses, dogs have been used in war...I know that Milk Bones were made to give a treat to some soldier's dog in World War I. Dogs have been parachuted out of planes by themselves- a terrifying experience in itself...only to land in war zones...many a dog has saved his soldier's life
During Viet Nam, the VC would deliberately target the dog kennels to kill the dogs...because the dogs would sniff them out. Sadly, tight up until sometime around 2000, our dogs were left behind...thrown away by the military...torn from the ones they loved and protected...their soldiers...This is taken from "War Dogs- -The Untold Story of Dogs in Combat," : "America's war dogs prevented over 10,000 casualties in Vietnam alone and bravely served our country in Operation Desert Storm as well as World War II. Yet, many of these K-9 Soldiers were declared "surplus armaments" and were unceremoniously euthanised or left to unknown fates in Vietnam.
America's war dogs were trained to recognize booby traps, mines tunnels and weapons caches. They were trained for parachutte landings. They warned troops about ambushes. They saved lives by dragging wounded soldiers to safety. These canine heroes lived, bonded and fought side-by-side with our veterans.
After World War II, surviving war dogs were sent home to their families with honorable discharges. But at the end of the Vietnam War, military officials abandoned almost all the American war dogs. None of the dogs of the Vietnam War have ever been honored for their bravery and service until now.....in the documentary War Dogs, America's Forgotten Heroes. Man's Best Friend- Especially in Combat!
I wish to honor them this day...the Silent Heroes, who once again showed their loyalty with their lives. There are several links on the web..please look them and up and learn just how wonderful and brave dogs are...http://www.war-dogs.com/, http://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/CCAB/war.html
We salute you, our fallen heroes: men, women, feather, hoof and paw...you are never forgotten.

A wonderful thing happened to me yesterday morning...You see, I had a wonderful website for several years and amassed a great deal of information regarding internet-business building and pages of animal welfare organizations, tips, foods, etc. Due to some unforeseen interruptions in my personal life, I let that website go.
I'm now re-structuring and re-building the website and I remember many of the wonderful organizations I was linking to. One of them is Save a Sato. I will be featuring them on the new website, actually, in the near future. But I'm including them in this morning's blog because of a little dog I met in the park yesterday morning named Lucy.
After bringing Scully and Dovi home from their walk in the park, a close friend and I "drove through" my favorite Sip n Dip Donuts here in Warren, RI and we went back to the park, opened up the canvas chairs by the water and enjoyed a yummy breakfast.
While enjoying the sun, a gorgeous little peach and white dog came sniffing up between us...Her human, following along behind her. He is a wonderful, kind gentleman who introduced us to Lucy. Lucy was dropped off on his doorstep in a box in Puerto Rico. Apparently, all her brothers and sisters were dropped off that way after her mother gave birth to them. The people just put these puppies in boxes and left them on random doorsteps. Not a good idea for the pups...or a safe one. You see, animals aren't treated well by the majority of people in Puerto Rico...Perhaps you recall about a year or so ago when an apartment complex told the tenenats they couldn't have pets anymore...? The owners of the complex sent people in to remove the animals..instead of taking these family pets to animals shelters...they were brutally thrown off a bridge- ALIVE....over 70 or 80 of them...thrown alive...terrified and flying through the air to their deaths...landning on the ones who'd gone before them...I think a few survived...the lucky ones. People were outraged, horrified...and I even signed some letters and petitions...There were family pets...Some are run over..Strays are poisoned..starved, left to die....Satos are the street dogs....
Save A Sato does its best to rescue as many of these beautiful, loving trusting animals..Cats included...they see they get proper vet care, baths and TLC...some are even sent here for adoption. Please visit the link here: http://saveasato.org Read about this wonderful group, look at the Before and After photos and contribute something if you can- even $5 or $10 dollars. They accept payments through PayPal. Paypal is a secure online payment system...that protects your information. It is owned by eBay and I've had an account with them for 5 years and have never had a problem with them. It's safe and secure. If you don't have a PayPal account, you may join by clicking on HERE.

Muchas gracias de parte de Los Satos....de Lucy...y de Scully, Dovi y Yo

I can take you directly to the cleanse in a few steps...I've done this before!
Click here: http://www.doctorsfinest.com/?Click=527
Then scroll down and click on Supplements. Then scroll down and click Next. It's on the second page. It's called eNZYmes Pro + . I buy the 225 gram. Its around $25.00 and lasts me over a year.
It's in powder form. At first, I hid it in Scully's dry food. I would pour a homemade broth over it...made from beef stock with sauteed garlic, onion, a little tomato and sometimes red pepper.. I place his dry kibble first...then sprinkle the enzymes over it...then add the broth...sometimes in some mashed sweet potato...He still eats it mixed with something healthy......This stuff completely cleared up his candida, too. Read about it and you'll be amazed. I swear by it 100%..and the Master Herbalist, Elliot Harvey has worked with me regarding Scully several times and always answers my email...I also buy the grain and potato free Bison food when my wallet allows...the treats are exceptional...I did stop giving Scully treats from pet stores, too...there are so many preservatives...so when you can make the switch...ANY little bit helps...

It's been damp and rainy here the last few days...you know, the kind of chill that gets in your bones. Well, our boy, Scully was on his bed, under his blanket ( an old sweater of mine...) He just loves to nap on gray days...nothing gets him out of his bed...nothing....except for the sounds of Food from the kitchen. :)
Sounds of food?? You know, aluminum foil being unwrapped...plastic wrap..the fridge door opening and closing...footsteps going back and forth from the stove to the fridge, pantry, etc...
Okay, so BOTH dogs came running and I managed to get this shot of our boys...Scully got out of his bed so fast when he heard Dovi's footsteps, that he dragged his blanket with him! It's still on his back and I hadda get that photo- just too cute...and I took it three times because everytime I got his attention for the photo, he'd glance and then go back to what was going on in the pantry! :::sighing::: There are so many deep stories to write about...so many wonderful things too...but for those of you who are dog people, you'll appreciate this...
By the way, they were running to the pantry for capellini and sauce and a little piece of sandwich steak. Not too shabby.....! ~Jenny, Scully and Dovi

As I'm sitting here at the computer, I'm watching re-runs of Ghost Hunters on the Sci-Fi channel and I decided to share one of several photos I have of the dogs watching an Orb...or an Orb watching the dogs. Now, I know Jay and Grant on Ghost Hunters don't buy into Orbs as something significant but I do because I've witnessed the dogs following things I couldn't see but would have goosebumps or creepy feelings, take a picture and something would come out...I did capture a figure in another shot....so here is a photo taken a few days before Christmas 2004...I was on the floor with the dogs when they both started watching something and following it with their eyes....I felt a distinct rush of cold air on my back and the goosebumps so I grabbed the camera- which really was nearby, as I'd been taking christmas photos...and this is what the camera captured...if you look in the upper left quadrant of the photo...not exactly top left but a little lower on the door frame, you'll see an orb in very fast motion and the dogs looking right at it...and there was an excessive amount of light from the flash- too much, actually...Tell me what you think!

As you can see, I interrupted our boy who was enjoying the sun back in December. He loves the sun any time of day...he just loves to stretch out and nap. But don't let his relaxed demeanor fool you...No, No..this royal dog of the Mayan Kings loves to play "catch the food"...okay, he's not chasing squirrels...He comes right to me and turns his back to me...as if to say "Here I am and I'm making a point!" So I stop what I'm doing and he looks at me and barks....we go to the food bowl and he barks and stares at it...So I toss a kibble acroos the kitchen floor and he chases after it...usually catching it. Sometimes he slides across the floor but he always gets it...Sometimes we'll go through a whole bowl of food that way...but it keeps him from being bored...we bond and he gets to use his "wolf" instincts. Most people can't believe he's over 10 years old because he jumps around like a puppy...I have to say I've done my best to get him the best food I could afford...And the best I've found is made by Doctor's Finest. Just click on the banner above Scully's photo and you'll be taken to the site. They have some incredible products that help with a myriad of ailments..including cancer, arthrits...I swear by these products and Elliott Harvey, Master Herbalist. Scully and I highly recommend them....and we''ll talk more about them in later posts. For now, always remember to speak out when you can for those who can't speak for themselves...
Ciao, Jenny and Scully ^..^ '

Learn From A Self-Made Internet Millionaire
Wednesday, May 6, 2009
Well, as you might have realized, Scully has a big heart. He went through alot in his early life and I was worried about getting another dog...but it happened. Dovi came from the Providence Animal Shelter...in other words, the city dog pound. He had just come in an hour earlier...He was a little white and black fluffball, shivering on the cold cement. It was early November 2000. He fit in the crook of my arm and weighed 6 lbs. He was about 3 months old and still had that adorable, round "puppy tummy" that young puppies and kittens have. He was adorable. Scully loved him immediately and three days later, thanks to Scully's examply, Dovi lifted his leg like a boy doggie instead of squatting like a girl. It made this mother's heart proud, I tell ya! :)
Well, the vet thought Dovi might have been a long-haired chihuahua but a year later, his magnificent papillon ears grew in and that was the first time I learned what a papillon was. Dovi loved to eat leaves....made me wonder what perils and trauma a three month old puppy could go through on the streets of a big city. He also loved to eat crablegs and seaweed from Colt's Park....Whatever the seagulls dropped, he went after. Well...here we are almost 9 years later and I have to tell you, though he's fluffy, Dovi is NOT a foo-foo dog! He LOVES to catch flies and eat them...he loves to run in the mud and he loves to be loved. He tries to be Alpha male but Scully puts him in his place- still. So...for your enjoyment, here's a photo..taken this afternoon of Dovi, chasing a fly. He fish-tailed out of the room and I didn't know what was after him and then I saw it- the FLY!! Dovi got him about an hour and a half later. Atta boy, Little Bit!!
As for Scully, Dovi and Me, well...we'd like to thank our friend, Kori at Super Wash for having a pet-friendly laundromat. She lets us go in occasionally and say Hi or Woof, depending... Please visit her blog at http://ty4gettindirty.blogspot.com/ Please take a look and thanks for clicking on our sponsors. It helps.
Remember to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves. We owe it to them.

Well, it was pouring this morning...Nice weather for ducks and flowers but not for sleepy puppies! I called Scully, who was under his green blankie (YES, it's a blankie!! LOL) He was in a state of bliss...as you can see by his little tongue sticking out! (look closely, it's there, I swear!!)
Anyway, when he and his little brother, Dovi (another rescue)heard the familiar sound of their raincoats, they quietly tried to slip away...But Mama prevailed and off we went outside. I tried to get a photo of both of them in their raincoats but it didn't work....so I've got our boy, Scully, begging to go in while his bro was busy doing his business. :::sighing::: He HATES to get his toes wet so he tries to tiptoe over the puddles and if they're too deep, he tries to jump over them...too cute!
As I write this, he is back under his blankie...after sneaking over to the cat's dish and polishing off all the food....Scully's bowl, however is FULL! Why eat Dog food when the cat food is right there? It's clearing up now...so this puppy will be very, very pleased!

Scully was rescued by Fran, the Animal Control Officer at the time ins Warren, RI. I called different animal shelters because I knew I wanted to make a difference in an animal's life. I wanted him or her to be a rescue. Anyway, I was hoping for a small, "apartment-sized" dog because of my personal situation. I was thrilled when Fran called me back and told me she had a Corgi-Chihuahua mix. He'd been there a week and had just been neutered. She told me he was skin and bones but had a sweet personality. He'd been starved and chained outside and she removed him from the premises...she'd been giving him canned dog food to "fatten him up." I could go by and see him the next day.
So the next day my friend and his basset hound took a ride to Warren to see if "Lucky" as Fran had called him, would be "the one." I went inside and she went to get him...she'd been letting him walk around freely inside and he was very shy. I waited in the office and I turned around and saw him peeking by the door as he paused before coming closer to me. He looked me in the eye with those big, brown eyes and I was "hooked." He came toward me slowly still and he let me pet him. I knew I wanted him to come home with me....so we went outside and he got along well with Precious...so he came home with me and th rest is history.
He's part of my life- my family and he listens without judging and I can't imagine my life without him. I guess I became Scully's haven. It's my goal that He becomes a haven for other animals.
Scully thanks you for visiting and so do I. ~Jenny and Scully ^..^ '

Through the years, I've come across remedies, excellent dog food and wonderful animal welfare sites that I'll share with you...maybe we can save a life- possibly your pet's.
I also understand money is tight these days and usually people switch to cheaper dog or cat food...cut out donations to animal rescue, etc. I've learned different ways to earn money on the internet through low-cost or free advertising...I can even show you how to get your own website FREE for 7 days and then only $10 bucks a month...AND earn an income with it...

We speak for those who cannot speak for themselves!
