With Thanks to Foster Families Everywhere, Especially Mine

Three legged German Shepherd Wyatt Ray Dawg says Thank You to German Shepherd Rescue of Northern California and his Oakland CA foster family.

Well, I guess you could say that me, my Mom and Dad are very grateful, and thankful to have this special girldog in our lives, Miss Codie Rae.

Last year at this time, I was still a star in the sky, yet to be born into guard dog slavery on the end of a rope. And as for my Mom and Dad, they were pretty sad, since Jerry had just gone on to the Bridge.

Now look at us, we are all one big hoppy family! Well, most of the time. Ok, when I’m a good dawg, which, if you ask my Dad, isn’t as much as he wants but I’m trying sooooo hard! He knows that, I think.

Anyhow, if it wasn’t for German Shepherd Rescue of Northern CaliforniaMiss Codie Rae, Smokey and her pawrents Martha and Ralph, who knows where I’d be at this very moment?

Thank you Codie Rae, Smokey, Martha and Ralph! This is the Best. Thanksgiving. Ever.

Because my pawrents adopted me, now Travis Ray has a chance at a good home too. At least he’s with my foster family right now, I bet he’s pretty happy about that. 

My Mom just posted about him in a new German Shepherd Discussion Forums group. Let’s all keep our paws crossed that next Thanksgiving, Travis Ray is writing a blog post just like this one!

Three Legged Couch Surfing Across America

Three legged dog Wyatt discovers the joys of couch surfing in an RV

Mom and Dad said I couldn’t get on the furniture at home, not even the bed. They said I haven’t earned that privlige yet. I’m not sure what that means.

But when we moved into the big doghouse on wheels, Dad said I could get on the couch if I wanted to. The couch is the only place where I can see out the window, and I like to see who’s going by. It’s my job, you know.

Here at the RV park in Nevada, there’s lots of peeps going by. The neighbor lady has two cranky old girldogs who sit outside all day and bark all the time. So I sit up here, and tell them who’s boss of this doghouse. I’ll be here until Christmas. It should be fun showing them who’s king around here.

The couch is waaaay more comfortable than my crate. I think I like this thing they call RVing.

But Dad says I still can’t get on the bed.

Texas German Shepherd Rescue Closing, 200 Dogs Need Our Help

Wyatt wants you to help save the German Shepherd Dogs at Camp Wolfgang near Dallas, Texas.

This thing called a recession is really hurting my shelter dog friends. Today, we got really sad when we heard that the good people at Camp Wolfgang, a German Shepherd Rescue near Dallas, Texas, are closing because they’re out of money.

The dog blog “Leaving Our Mark” posted that:

“The non-profit rescue group, located in Ennis, TX, is suffering budget shortfalls and is closing Oct. 30, 2009. While Camp Wolfgang primarily rescues German shepherds, there are also many other breeds, including a significant number of Rottweilers.

Sadly, there are nearly 200 dogs in the rescue and it is being reported that the dogs who are not adopted by month’s end will be moved to high-kill shelters, or euthanized. People throughout Texas and nearby states who are considering a new dog should consider adopting from a rescue.

Local rescues are trying to help Camp Wolfgang, but there is limited space. Every dog that is adopted out (from any Texas rescue) creates an opening for an at-risk dog at Camp Wolfgang. If you are able to foster a dog, please consider doing so now.

If you live in the area and are able to help one of these dogs, please contact the Kennel Master, Leisha Livengood at 214-755-1627.”

Please run as fast as you can and spread the word or adopt one of these dogs today. Camp Wolfgang needs you now more than ever.
