Depending on the coverages they have, their renters Insurance policy should assist them. HopefullyRead More this will be a testimonial on the value of insurance.

I tried calling this evening, and the voicemail box was full. I hope that's a good sign that theRead More Venturas got all of the help that they needed? I am a local pilot, and I put a note out on the pilots board (the pilot of this aircraft is also part of that community), and got several responses offering to help, including cadets from the local Civil Air Patrol. I just want the Venturas to not associate "pilot" with bad stuff happening! Very glad that everyone is (physically) okay. The emotional part will come in time.

Although not intended, this story also reminds us how needlessly dangerous cheerleading is. GroupRead More gymnastic and tumbling stunts performed on hardwood floors are bound to cause concussions and other serious injuries. There was a safer time when cheerleading had something to do with leading cheers.

Help stamp out the Post Office. Private sector companies can run it better, faster, cheaper and atRead More no tax payer expense. I never thought I would see the day when I said something like, ditch the USPO, but the time has come.

Yeah the mailman left my donations in the box so maybe he didn't get the memo...

Thanks Angie. He's such a sweet, easy-going boy, I suspect he will have a new home soon.

He's actually being fostered in a condo, but loves his daily walks.

Oh my. I have always had kitties, but he's a doll. Aww, he's such a photogenic sweetie.

Wow Karen...four is a lot, but it's great you chose to rescue. You can also help by recommendingRead More Ricco's story and sharing it with your friends. His home is out there.

Blessings to Lauren and her family for giving Monty a chance in this life. I have two dogs and IRead More just can't fathom how people can be so careless about a dog. There is simply no better love than the unconditional love and loyalty they give. Dogs are the best people I know.

Love the name and mission of Mutts Matter, and the folks at Boone & Sons are to be commended forRead More their generosity. Hope "Diamonds in the Ruff" is a fabulous success. On a lighter note, pet fans might want to check out a music video I've produced with the help of several local musicians, Nothin' Butt a Mutt. http://youtu.be/rGv09fZuops It's also available on my website, www.whosyourdaddybaby.com.

I'm sure your God would watch and approve of you judging others. You don't know the background storyRead More of these people or why they no longer had the time. I have an in-law who due to old age and dementia was mentally unable to care for the dog and it had to go to a shelter. I guess in her 70s she forgot God was watching (dementia no doubt) and I guess she never believed in God.
