Bandit tries to decide what she'll be for Halloween this year

Bandit's trying to figure out what to be for Halloween this year. There are so many possibilities!

Thanks for the podsafe music, Eric Strom! The song is "Day 57 What Should I Be For Halloween."

And thanks, Bandit, for playing along!

What do you think? What should Bandit be?

Are you dressing up your pets for Halloween this year? If so, what are they going to be?

This Piglet's as snuggly as he looks

A friend of a friend just emailed me and asked if I could help this adorable harlequin bunny, who is now at Nevins Farm, the MSPCA branch in Methuen, MA.

A bit about Piglet:
Being held, petted, and melting in your arms are just a few of my distinguishing characteristics. If you look at my beautiful coloring and markings, you will see that I am an extra special little boy who needs some place to call home. I would be great with children and since I am young, we can grow old together.

Ah, if we only had unlimited resources to take in all the animals who needed homes...

Greyhounds in New England

So I figured out (with the advice of a few greyhound-owning friends) that I really need an organization that fosters the animals, that is, gets to know each "dogality" really well. Like I said before, I really can't have a new pup going for SweetPea or Bandit. Also, since it is the "first" (Paul goes, "First?! How many are we planning on getting?!") greyhound we're getting and that adjustment will be big enough, I also think it's a plus for a dog to know how to climb up stairs, live in a home, etc., which they don't know right from the track. Fostering teaches them all these wonderful things (so we don't have to).

I know of only two organizations that foster their greyhounds before adoption in New England. Both seem like really terrific options for me.

One of them is Greyhound Welfare (based in the Chesapeake Bay area, but also have a branch of operations in New England) and the other is We Adopt Greyhounds, which I found through GreyTalk.

I'm working with both of these organizations right now to see if there's a grey out there who may fit with our home.

Do you know of any others? If so, please comment.

Why I love Best Friends in Utah

Check out this video. Thank God there are places like this with people like this, who will do "whatever it takes" for an animal in need. (Best Friends is the animal sanctuary that brings you DogTown on the National Geographic Channel.)

Learn more about the funds that made this rescue possible and to become a Guardian Angel of Best Friends.
