Update From Dale - Jan 4, 2015

Hello dear friends of the Refuge,

Just want to touch base to keep you posted. We are doing ok. The surviving dogs are currently living in my house for lack of a place to put them. Amazingly, all are getting along. The rubble from the fire has not yet been removed. It depends on the ok from insurance company and the removal of three large trees enabling access for machinery. I hope it happens soon. Everyday I see it and smell the fire, resulting in tears. We've had a number of sick dogs, mostly with upper respiratory problems as a result of smoke inhalation. Some are still suffering from anxieties.

There is much to do. Tons of paperwork, return phone calls, inventory of everything lost, setting up food preparation area in garage, storage of salvaged items, storage of dog food, dealing with insurance company and a myriad of things I'd never considered. The list is long. Plans are being made for temporary housing and future rebuilding. Whatever is built will be made of steel.

We buried the lost dogs soon after the fire on a site here on the farm overlooking the Catskill Mountains. Had a back hoe dig a rectangular grave, then lined it with white tarps and a thick bed of straw. The dogs were each in a beautiful pillowcase with their name on it.

Once they were laid to rest, facing East toward the rising sun, they were covered with a thick layer of good golden straw and fresh anemones grown here in the Hudson Valley. After filling the grave in, another layer of straw was spread on top along with more flowers and many tears. A wreath was placed on the grave as well. It was a solemn private burial with two of my adult children David and Cody and my husband Paul. Words cannot portray the sadness of the loss of these precious souls.

As for me, I'm behind on many things. Have deposited many of the donation checks and will be depositing the rest on Monday. The sadness has cut into my efficiency and I find myself almost paralyzed at times.

We are very grateful for the donations, the sympathy cards and your faith in us. Your amazing outpouring of kindness has touched my heart.

The dogs that are now in the house are a light in the darkness. I find myself cuddling up with them and holding them close. They are sacred to me and good medicine. We are all trying to heal. Love and thanks to you all.

God bless,
Dale
