Foster dog #2...

Yup...it's another Anatolian and her name is Sasha. I picked her up Thursday night (the 24th). She comes from the Fort Worth Animal Care and Control. I met a wonderful lady in Centerville, Texas. Jean was kind enough to spring Sasha from the shelter and meet me in Centerville. This girl is a lucky pup. She was set to be euthanized Wednesday (the 23rd) if she didn't get adopted or pulled by a rescue group. Luckily for her, we were able to get her out and to my place - and the shelter was willing to give her a couple of extra days to allow us to work out transport. She's sweet, doesn't like the crate too much but isn't destructive and is okay (for the most part) with the other two dogs and the cats in the house. She does have a cold but we're working on fixing that. She's now being treated with Panacur to get rid of any nasty hitchikers that may be in her intestines and was given a Capstar to get rid of any nasty hitchhikers that may have been on her fur. She also got a bath. She is very skinny but we're also working on fattening her up. :)

Foster dog...

This one's an Anatolian and, unfortunately, was not able to stay at my house for very long. He is a very sweet dog and I love him to pieces but he suffers from separation anxiety. To the point that he is destructive if left alone, even in a crate. So he is now hanging out in a doggy spa until another foster home can be found. Until then I still get to visit him because he will be starting heartworm treatment in the next week or so. Anyone interested in a real sweet dog who just wants to be with you? He'll gladly go to work or keep you company while you do stuff around the house or run errands! He's great with dogs, cats and strangers. Oh...and his name is Bear and he's with Anatolian Shepherd Dog Rescue League (ASDRL). You can thank my mom for the wonderful photos of him!

Is this a bear?

Here is a really cute article about a Rhodesian Ridgeback that is owned by a guy who works at Amazon. Some of his coworkers decided to use his dog and build a Dog-Computer Interface (DCI). The article is hilarious and there are nice pictures of the dog!

**No dogs were harmed in the building of this device....however...lots of treats were dispensed!
