Barkticles - Hollydogs

As a Dog I am very passionate about the well-being of my fellow Dogs, especially those who are in the most danger of being "put down" as it is called. You can imagine that, as a Dog, a Beagle to be exact, I consider it something more than a "put down," but I'll restrain myself and keep this civil.

Greyhounds as many of you already know are often used for racing. I don't necessarily have anything against racing, it's the killing and over breeding that bother me. Greyhounds are among some of the finest athletes in the Doggie World, but those who aren't considered fast enough are simply done away with.

Fortunately, at least for some, there are people, like the fine folks at Hollydogs in Hollywood, Florida who step in and try to help those dogs who are in need of good homes or sponsorship due to special needs.


It is my sincere hope that if you can spare it that you will help Hollydogs with monetary contributions or even an adoption.

And don't forget! March 30th is the Hollydogs Greyhound Picnic from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. All Dogs are invited, and their accompanying humans, of course!

So barks I, pawed --

Barkticles - Beagle Freedom Project

As many of my readers already know, I, Sweetlips K., am a Beagle, thus my surname of Beagle, of course. I'm sure you can imagine that I have a special soft spot for all other Beagles, but none so much as those who have been used for laboratory experiments. I'm sure you can understand how upsetting something like that would be to me, a fellow Beagle. However, it doesn't matter to me if you're even a cat because even cats deserve a good and loving home where they can feel safe and feel the green grass under their paws.

Sadly, lab animals seldom get a chance to feel green grass under their paws.

Enter the Beagle Freedom Project of fine, upstanding, loving human beings who help to provide homes for Beagles who have been used for laboratory research. It is my sincere hope that you will take a look at their site and, if possible, adopt one of these Beagles into your home.

It will be well worth the time and effort that it may take to get one of these Beagles conditioned to life outside a cage. You could be the answer to a Beagle's prayer.
