Manic Mondays

Hello all! It's been awhile since we've posted anything. Been a little busy in Houston land! Bentley is doing much better and his bobo looks a 100% better. Bridgette and Bentley made up and have been moping around because da Momma got the bronchitis and a respiratory infection for the last week and had to recoup. Much better now and the 4-legged's were able to go on two walkabouts in the park over the weekend! WooHoo- all of the 4-legged's are eating again. Broke down and went back to their favorite food. I'm going to have to donate the bag from CostCo to a local groomer/kennel contact down the road from us. The lady that owns it takes in rescues to stay overnight for various Rescue groups till someone can transport and can use the food. As some of you know, I'm involved with Texas Airedale Rescue Team (TART) http://www.texasairedalerescue.com/. Well, I've volunteered to update our volunteer database here in Texas. If anyone has a friend, family member, Vet. or contact that is possibly available to help with transport, identification of Airedales at shelters, etc. anywhere in Texas, please contact me at webedataire@yahoo.com. As most of you know, TEXAS is LARGE. And sometimes we get a surrender, rescue or lost/found airedale in the darndest places. I used to live in West Texas in the middle of nowhere (kinda close to New Mexico/ kinda close to Oklahoma but not really) and found my Luke (@RB) wandering down a county road looking for a new family. He was 25 miles from the closest town where he'd been living in a backyard. In north and west Texas, it can easily be 30 to 90 miles to civilization and I am trying to establish a network of friends of Airedales that might be able to be called upon if the emergency arose where we don't have a volunteer on our list! Whew- that was a run-on sentence if I ever saw one! We do have a great group of volunteers but with the economy the way it is, people are finding excuses to discard their 4-legged family members on a daily basis. Hmmpff. And as always, all of the volunteer groups need more contacts. All inquiries are welcome and references checked! I hope all of you on this beautiful planet we call Earth are doing well and thanks for reading my post! Till next time!
