High Flying Dog Video

By Deborah Taylor-French

Well, some dogs just never get tired. Herding and working dogs love to run all day, jump, ride off on adventures, but this Australian working dog looks like he can fly.

If you are a high-energy runner who wants a running buddy, visit this great California dog rescue. Nor Cal Aussie Rescue was featured in Bark magazine. Case Study: Saving AussiesNorCal Aussie Rescue Sanctuary by Marcia Barkley.

Aussie Nor Cal Rescue Sanctuary

Kim Kuenlen, Founder and President, writes that in 2006 her dream came true when she bought a home with six and a half acres between Auburn and Grass Valley, just off Highway 49. Kim dubbed her new home for Aussie Rescue “the Sanctuary.” Kim and supporters raised money to build indoor kennels and fence two play areas, including an agility ring. The public is invited to visit.

Hey there. I know I have been a bit thin on posting for a few months. Family stuff took  me away a few times, but now that my loved one is better…I am back.

Sydney wants 100% happy rescue dog photo splash today. A little birdy told me. Of course, Sydney usually is not camera-shy. He peeked away as if to tell me, “That’s enough posing, Mom!”

I saw this doggie bandana made by Two’s Company. They donate part of their Happy Dog Rescue profits to animal shelters across the United States.

What a lucky dog.

Is he smiling or meditating?

Couple Rescues Dog Thrown From Car Onto Highway

“A couple told workers at the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter that when they saw the dog get tossed out of the car, they blocked traffic, approached the dog lying in the middle of the highway and picked her up. They took her to the Teller County shelter.

Shelter workers have named the dog Mystery. She’s about 13 pounds, white with unusual black facial markings, a short tail and long thin face, possibly a Terrier mix.

Workers said when Mystery arrived, she could not stand or walk. After an exam and several X-rays, a vet determined that Mystery had several fractures in her pelvis and a severe older break in her left rear leg.

Vets say Mystery is good-natured and is welcoming the attention at the clinic.”

The shelter is trying to raise money to pay for treating Mystery’s severe injuries. Learn more on the new Teller County Regional Animal Shelter’s website.”
