The Real Time Canine II

After spending 2 years writing the Real Time Canine, the adventure continues with The Real Time Canine II. Read along as I look for just the right puppy to continue the experience. After false starts with Tim and Jed, I am currently training young Tam, and Spot, which are both off to a strong start. Please visit the RTC II to read about training sessions as they occur.

Mabel and Margarita

This is a Beagle named Mabel. She is one of 179 dogs rescued from a Virginia puppy mill where she continued to be bred despite the fact that she is elderly, overweight and completely blind. She spent her entire life in a cage for the sole pupose of supplying pet stores with puppies.

Margarita is a Chihuahua puppy mill breeding bitch that was scheduled to be killed because she had a hernia the size of a grapefruit. She was rescued from a puppy mill in the Mid West.

These two are representative of the puppy mill momma dogs that give birth every year to an estimated 4 million (Read that again, please) 4 million puppies, most of which are sold to pet stores. Both Mabel and Margarita were spayed after rescue, and have found permanent homes where they will live out their days in peace and love.

Best Friend's Animal Sanctuary
has a progam called "Puppies aren't Products." May I suggest that you visit their site and give yourself a feel good Mother's Day gift by making a donation in the names of Mabel and Margarita. I bought a bracelet...
