Meet Skyrah, Our Newest Foster Dog!

We are pleased to introduce our newest foster dog, Skyrah.  As can be seen from her before and after pictures, she is making marvelous progress.

Day one

Skyrah in the Beginning

Skyrah After

Skyrah a Few Months Later

In the beginning, the possibility of her barking again was questionable due to the injuries that her neck had sustained.  As miracles would have it, she regained her voice and uses it to warn all the backyard squirrels into trees as she joyfully chases and nearly catches them on a daily basis.  Our yard has never been so rodent free!  We actually had fruit on the pear trees for the first time in years!  The Humane Society of the Delta and Meals on Wheels Helena-West Helena Dogs were kind enough to choose us to be her caregivers until the animal cruelty charges concerning Skyrah were decided in a court of law.  The trial to determine this outcome is in mid-September.  It is our hope that she finds her well- deserved forever family shortly thereafter. 


Squirrel Chasing School 101, Phillip, the Fabulous, Showing Skyrah the Moves

We ask that you surround this wacky family of ours with “Light and Love” as we embark on another great adventure with this precious pooch.  In the meantime, Phillip the Fabulous, has taken a real interest in helping out as he embraces his new role as a foster dog parent quite seriously.  How else would she learn about squirrel chasing?

Love Cancer? Posted on June 5, 2014by ellen3625 I remember the day the we stopped dying and started living. That was the day that we stopped fighting the Cancer and started loving the Cancer. Love Cancer? You are undoubtedly asking yourself if you read that correctly. Yes, Indeed you have. We did not wish cancer upon my husband. Despite the devastating nature of this life-threatening illness, opportunities were made available to us that we would have never chosen. The illness drove us down a winding scenic road brimming with serendipitous events that led to unexplored possibilities and new realities. This drive was filled with glimpses of unimaginable ideas and beliefs that consumed our interest like never before. Unique new individuals and unexpected animals seemed to show up at each intersection providing uncharted directions that filled us with hope and wonder, displacing the fear of death. The worries of the cancer that once filled our every thought were welcomed with a no vacancy sign. That different path had always been there available to us…waiting for us, yet we never chose to take the time to explore it. There was never the time until there was no more time. We always felt there would be endless tomorrows. Cancer had seemingly removed that option. Now I say “Thank You Cancer!” I say this knowing that we have had a rare chance to embrace the treasures that are really meaningful now.. not waiting for those imagined tomorrows. “Thank You Cancer” for changing our lifestyles, our food choices, our thoughts, and our actions. “Thank You Cancer” for opening my eyes to the bounty of healing weeds that are growing in the medicine cabinet I call my “Back Yard.” I would have never had the courage or desire to try my “Home Grown Concoctions” without your shove. “Thank You Cancer” for the animals that have helped us along the way. We are forever in their debt. “Thank You Cancer” for teaching us to live each moment to its fullest for the best and highest good for all. Now when I see someone with Cancer, I don’t say,” You poor dear!” Instead I tell them, “Opportunity has just slapped you in the face. You are about to embark on the journey of your life! Buckle Up, Take in the View, and Love the Cancer!” Love Cancer? You bet ya!

    Welcome, Skyrah! It was hard to see your first picture, but you look so good now! And I love your pink collar and harness! How terribly your first owners treated you! I hope they get many books thrown at them and will get the treatment that they treated you with! You poor baby, I’m so glad you now have Ellen and her husband AND Phillip for a little while! 🙂 xx oo from Debb and her husband and cat family (but don’t worry, I am a dog lover!).
