Sydney the Angel Dog.
Sydney is my newest foster pup. She is ten years old and in questionable health. She is peaceful, gentle and loving and wonderful to be around.
These pictures show angels all around her. Aren't they amazing?
Health Benefits of owning a dog (and a cat!)
Facts and Stats thanks to our pups and purrs ...
Dog owners walked an average of 300 minutes a week compared to 168 minutes for those without a dog. - HealthyWomen.org
Interacting and petting animals creates a hormonal response in humans that can help fight depression. - News-Medical.net
Research shows that more is better with the households with multiple pets (cats & dogs) showing lower allergic responses. – Journal of the American Medical Association
Studies show that the sound of a cat’s purr keeps their bones strong – and strengthens the bones of their companions. - www.tesh.com
Pet owners have fewer minor health problems.
- Friedmann, 1990, Serpel, 1990
70% of families surveyed reported an increase in family happiness and fun after getting a pet. - Cain, 1985
A pet can serve as an emotional refuge, a patient listener and a connective tissue that gives the family, no matter its trials, a sense of purpose and belonging.
- Dr. Marty Becker with Danelle Morton, The Healing Power of Pets

a.k.a. The Bad Seed
... One slipper at a time
If you would like to see some good little puppy dogs come visit Beau Beau's pals at DogCaptionCards. Not only can you see them, you can mail them to your friends.
Why? Because that's what friends do - mail stuff to make friends smile and know they're special.

BeauBeau the Foster Pup has become ... BeauBeau Berry!
Here are before and after photos. Amazing what a little love and friendship can accomplish in their lives - and ours.
The second photo I call "Legends" as in "Legends in their own minds."
Feel free to share any of your happily ever after from "foster to family member" stories!
By the way ... The DogCaption Fundraising Program is LIVE. To raise money for your organization or just raise fun with your dog-loving friends, click here.

This is an excellent website to locate specific breed rescue groups. I found it this morning hunting up a dachshund rescue organization in Virginia. I stopped my vet from taking this pup to the local shelter just in a nick of time. Really, why take a pure breed to a shelter when it will get much more support from its breed lovin' family?
