April is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Month! By wearing orange in April, you take a stand against animal cruelty. And by purchasing your orange at the ASPCA Online Store, you support the work we do for animals every month of the year.

Hi my pals, I was doing some research on line on the ASPCA websitehttp://www.aspca.org/ and I found some information I would like to pass on to you. I know that we all know the horrors of puppy mills. I am believed to be a puppy mill survivor myself. I am lucky and have a wonderful furever home but other animals are not so lucky.
There are other ways to get puppy mill animals and one is on-line pet stores. I didn't know about those and I don't mean to be a downer but sometimes I think it is important to realize how lucky we are. Here are some ways these sites get people to buy their animals.
The Bait and Switch
In this classic scam, the website depicts dozens of photos of cute and cuddly, happy and healthy dogs and puppies for sale. What the consumer doesn’t realize is that these are stock photos used over and over again—or simply stolen from other websites. In this scam, virtually all contact is done via email, and the puppy is typically shipped without the buyer ever seeing the dog in person. The scam is revealed when the dog is delivered and the buyer is faced not with the adorable puppy from the photos, but a sickly dog, often of a different color or with different markings. Scammers count on people feeling guilty or compassionate and choosing not to send the puppy back.
Santuarcies or Scamtuaries?
Unfortunately, this next scam preys on animal lovers who want to help dogs in need. In this scenario, the puppy mill will actually set up its website as a “rescue group” or “sanctuary,” offering purebred puppies who have been rescued from shelters, bad breeders, even from puppy mills! The scam is revealed by the price tag—the “adoption fees” for these dogs often exceed $1,000! Breed rescue groups usually charge no more than a few hundred dollars—because their goal is not to make money, but to find wonderful homes for their rescues.
ONLINE STORES THAT SELL PUPPIES:
My pals will you please pledge with me below to not buy any products from stores or any business that sell animals. We have to help in some way to shut these puppy mills down. That is one small way we can do it.
Thanks my pals and I love you

My Dad is nuts for this March Madness stuff and it is madness here. I have learned more new HBO words than ever before. My ears are stinging a little. I have to do a lot of tucking and rolling cause Daddy tends to throw things. I just want to play with my Daddy for a while and go for a walk, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. He is too busy watching the stupid guys running back and forth and throwing the ball in the air. It must be like a hot potato cause they keep passing it to each other and then pass it back.
When is March over?? I miss my Daddy.

Sissy, what shall we do first??? How about a nice romp by the lake? Can we play chase? I can't wait to get started.
I love my Sister so much!
Boyfriend and I discussing some interesting pee-mail. I am not sure who this is from, I haven't been to the park for a while.
Yahoo, can we stop for a snack?? Here is a good picnic table.
Wait a minute, this is not what I had in mind my Peeps!
No I don't want to leave!! Please can't we stay??
I am pooped(and also I did poop several times giggles) and now I guess it is time to go home. They promised me we will go again soon.

Hi my Pals, I heard about this book called "The Hunger Games" and I thought I would give it a try. I need to catch up on some reading anyway, and I want to impress Remington, who I am pretty sure loves to read.
Mommy, I thought this book was about food??? At least it is approved by PETA..."No Sashy a characters name is Peeta, not PETA". Where are the parts with Cats..."again Sash, no cats, character name is Katniss
Why do books have such confusing titles?? Why don't they just call it "The Not About Food Hunger Games"? OMD there is a character named "Caesar", could that be The Dog Whisperer??? I am terrified of him, ok thats enough for today.
On to more important things, maybe I will go back to Dr. Seuss tomorrow.
I love you my pals and be careful what you read, you can't judge a book by its title. I totally just made that up, do you think it will catch on??" Sashy, that saying has been around forever"...sigh I can't win today.

A Wish for a Friend
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
Happy St. Patricks Day to all my Pals
p.s. Sasha Irish Blessing: May you not eat and drink too much green food cause it will make you have green poo.

Hi my pals, Mommy wants to take over for a
minute so please be patient with her. Blogging is my thing, not hers.
I just wanted to let you all know why Sasha got
such a short trim yesterday. She has been itching like crazy lately and benedryl only helps so much. The Vet wanted to have her trimmed all the way down, so she could see her skin better and it is much easier to bathe her like this( she hates baths..."what no I...oh wait yes I do, never mind"). She does have a minor infection and so will be on antibiotics and also prednisone. I hope this helps, I feel so bad for her when she is itching so much and I find fur patches all over from her itching. So far she has been a really good girl with her medicine which I hide in pupperoni..".what Mommy??"...nothing Sash go back to sleep. I am going to try cheese also. They did refer to her as a Senior now, but Sashy is the most active dog and believe me, she is not a Senior in spirit. She loves a good game of football and a romp in the park.
I have one other concern that I ask your prayers for. The Vet thought she heard a heart murmur. She checked her after she was very agitated from the trim, so she wasn't sure, but ordered a chest x-ray. The x-ray looked fine and the other Vet at the end of the day, didn't hear it and thought it might have just been that Sash was so upset and her heart was pounding from that earlier. They did some special blood tests and we won't find out the results until next week. We lost our first shih tzu to a heart condition and so this scares me. Sasha doesn't have any symptoms so I have no reason to think that she is sick, but extra prayers never hurt. She is my little lovey. Ok Mommy out.
Ok my pals, I am sorry for the interruption and I will be back tomorrow sometimes you gotta let the Moms win. I have been feeling great today and for some reason I am getting a lot of extra pupperoni, which is just fine by me.
Happy St. Patricks Day and thanks for all your nice comments, I am not a Cougar after all.
p.s. Mom again, I forgot to mention that I almost needed medical care after I saw the bill lol, but of course she is worth every bit of it

Here I am after a grueling day which included, hair cut, nail trim, bath, blood tests, 3 count them 3 SHOTS, a chest xray , temperature check(you know what that means) and a general check up. The photo below is the only one my Mom could get as I ran for the door to get out. She tried like 6 zillion times to get a picture and there were all too blurry. Do you blame me??
Here I am forcing my Sister to drive me home!! My pals I must tell of the major insult, I referred to earlier. As they were checking me in and they saw that I am, well I hesitate to say now, but I am 7 and 1/2 years old. Do you know what they called me??? A Senior Citizen!!! OMD BOL BOL can you believe that I, Sasha, who is as active as a young pup could be called a Senior. I even had to have special blood work for it. Well my pals, do you know what that makes me???
A COUGAR!!! I AM A COUGAR. Will Remington still want me??? Will he still love me as an older woman?? I am all in a tither. Oh I am exhausted and can't think about it right now. My pals, do you think I am a cougar???
I must rest now, after all tomorrow is another day.
p.s. they do seriously have gloves they call shark gloves that they have to use, grooming has never been my thing

My pals, my sweet Remington @ here , has been ill and he needs our love and prayers. I know he will be ok, but we all need to think good and healing thoughts for him. I am calling on my sweet pal Tweedles to climb in the magic bubble and make an emergency run. "Tweedles are you up to a quick trip, we need to spread healing bubbles on Remington?" "Of course, I am always ready to spread the love, lets go."
"There he is, ok steady the magic bubbles and blast him!" " We love you Remington, feel better and soon you will be scoring touchdowns and leaping through the snow."
"Ok that should do it, now rest my sweet Remington and you will be fine"
Please think good thoughts and send prayers for Remington.
