Update From Dale

Hello All!

Are you still out there? Hope so. The Refuge is recovering from the huge storms which took it's toll but somehow with the grace of God we got thru the worst. We now resemble a war zone! The dogs are all okay although they are feeling the pangs of confinement.

The first day of the big storm I turned poor DiDi out for just a few minutes only to watch her become stuck to the point of practically disappearing in a sea of white. Good thing she has an undocked tail which was about all that was visible. It took some doing to trudge through it to get to her, pick her up and trudge back to the kennel.

We lost one pen which despite a good solid roof, collapsed under the weight of the snow followed by a large tree snapping over the kennel requiring a tree man to remove it in fear it would drop further and take the roof with it.

The dogs remained as usual, looking for breakfast while listening to classical music. During all this I turned into a crabby old woman who fired the snow plow guy after he pushed a wall of snow right smack in front of the kennel gate. Certain I was going to have a heart attack attempting to shovel a path (or more likely a tunnel) I somehow managed to gouge out a VERY narrow walk thru if I put one foot in front of another. All it took was a sense if necessity and Ibuprofen. Lots of each.

Following all this I decided a short nap was in order before it would be dinner time. How nice it would be to cuddle up with my house dogs and a heating pad! Of course the dogs were already in the unmade bed where they had been lounging all day ( lucky, lazy little devils)! With a sense of accomplishment I lay down in the only open spot to find someone (or two) had peeeeeed! In my bed! On my spot! "Who did this"? "Why you little stinkers"! "You have a doggie door"! They remained calm, looking at me saying " So what's the big deal"? "Can we cuddle now"? I moved over about a foot and thought " I don't believe I'm doing this ". And the nap was good.

To bring you up to date ... We've had some good adoptions.

Christmas Jack went to a wonderful home where the word is he fits right in and truly belongs. Jack Denny who never made it to the site, and Mylie and Petie were also adopted. It looks as though Louisa will be leaving this weekend and Roscoe is on hold as well. I brought six dogs in the house to make things a bit more comfortable for them. And no one has peeed in my bed! There is much catch up to be done but want you to know I've been thinking of you. The dogs received some lovely gift packages for the holidays. All very thoughtful and useful. Beautiful hand made afghans, blankets, toys and goodies. Monetary donations were and are, always extremely helpful. The monthly ones give us an amount we can rely on. We are currently feeding 50 + rescue dogs. (I don't count anymore). The Kurunda bed program has met with success, providing almost every dog with a comfortable bed up on legs, keeping their little bodies up off the floor. My thanks to all who contributed with overwhelming generosity. We also found great pleasure in the many Holiday cards, some with photos of our alumni beaming in their homes and others with photos of dogs who are fortunate to have never known being homeless. I've saved every one.

Dear Earl is happy in his home and looks like he's put on a pound or two. He was The Refuge Dog of the Year. An amazing story and recovery. I'll be back in touch with more up to date happenings. It's well past bedtime but I wanted you to know that I think of you, appreciate you and never forget what you do for us. You are certainly a loyal following and we are so very fortunate to have you. You make me feel that I'm not alone in the quest to save those we can.

With continued heartfelt thanks, Dale
