So, I went to see Sex and the City, the movie was great! It was fun, romantic, dramatic, and a happy ending! It did make me cry twice, just a few little tears. I just LOVED. Carrie looks great! How can you stay so thin at her age? Samantha still a fox and the life of the party; she finally got a little pooch, and you will see why LOL. Big was a BIG jerk, but in the end he makes up.

Well, I totally recommend, it’s a total girl’s night out movie, great locations and fashion, of course!

Also, there will be some good movies coming out this summer, another good girl flick is Mama Mia – you will see some of Greece in this one.

Don’t wait any more, grab you girl friends and go see Sex and The City, it’s awesome!

It’s a very sad to read about pets being left behind because owners had to leave their home due to foreclosure. I am an animal lover, and I could never leave my pet behind even if I had no place to go, I would still keepmy pet. Maybe it’s easier said than done, but it sounds to me that takes a pretty cold person to just close the doors and leave lovable pets behind. This is what happened to Sami and Danni, from Boca Raton, FL.  See Sami and Danni in the picture, taken from the Sun Sentinel site (staff photo/Robert Mayer), aren’t they so cute? I already have 3 dogs and I would love to get more but it would just be more expense than we can afford; but I hope a nice family adopted them.

The South Florida foreclosure situation is very sad, not just for the families losing their homes but also for the abandoned pets. Sami and Danni are at the Tri-County Humane Society shelter, in Florida.

Sami and Danni are still up for adoption at http://www.tricountyhumane.org/adoptable_dogs.asp – you can view their picture and other adoptable dogs as well.

Here are some tips to pet owners on what they should do when facing foreclosure:

  • Don’t ever leave your pet behind inside your former home or in the yard. The animal could die from dehydration or starvation before anyone finds out. Foreclosure procedures might be delayed and no one will be checking the home until it’s too late for the pet.
  • Always try to find a temporary home for your pet; maybe a family member or a friend will be able to take care of your pet until you get back on your feet. Also, you can ask a veterinarian or an animal shelter group for the location of a temporary pet foster home.
  • Ask animal groups or shelters if they know of pet friendly landlords. Always keep records of your pet’s veterinary visits and shots, some landlords might like to know you are a responsible pet owner.
  • When moving to a new place, always get in writing if you are allowed to have a pet.
  • Get your pet spayed or neutered; pets are more likely to be welcomed into a new home if they are healthy and well-trained.

Find more information about renting with pets, see www.rentwithpets.orgor call 202-452-1100  and ask for the Companion Animal section. Also, visit American Veterinary Medical Association at www.avma.org and type “pets and foreclosure” in the search field.  Info. source: Sun Sentinel 4/22/08.

Meet Molly. She’s a gray speckled pony who was abandoned by her owners when Katrina hit southern Louisiana, USA. She spent weeks on her own before finally being rescued and taken to a farm where abandoned animals were stockpiled. While there, she was attacked by a pit bull terrier, and almost died. Her gnawed right front leg became infected and her vet went to LSU for help. But LSU was overwhelmed, and this pony was a welfare case. You know how that goes.

But after surgeon Rustin Moore met Molly, he changed his mind. He saw how the pony was careful to lie down on diff- erent sides so she didn’t seem to get sores, and how she allowed people to handle her. She protected her injured leg. She constantly shifted her weight, and didn’t overload her good leg. She was a smart pony with a serious survival ethic.

Moore agreed to remove her leg below the knee and a temporary artificial limb was built. Molly walked out of the clinic and her story really begins there.

“This was the right horse and the right owner,” Moore insists.  Molly happened to be a one-in-a-million patient. She’s tough as nails, but sweet, and she was willing to cope with pain. She made it obvious she understood (that) she was in trouble. The other important factor, according to Moore, is having a truly committed and compliant owner who is dedicated to providing the daily care required over the lifetime of the horse.

Molly’s story turns into a parable for life in post-Katrina Louisiana. The little pony gained weight, her mane felt a comb. A human prosthesis designer built her a leg.

The prosthetic has given Molly a whole new life, Allison Barca DVM, Molly’s regular vet, reports.  And she asks for it! She will put her little limb out, and come to you and let you know that she wants you to put it on. Sometimes she wants you to take it off too.” And sometimes, Molly gets away from Barca. “It can be pretty bad when you can’t catch a three-legged horse,” she laughs.

Most important of all, Molly has a job now. Kay, the rescue farm owner, started taking Molly to shelters, hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers. Anywhere she thought that people needed hope. Wherever Molly went, she showed people her pluck. She inspired people. And she had a good time doing it.

“It’s obvious to me that Molly had a bigger role to play in life”, Moore said, “She survived the hurricane, she survived a horrible injury, and now she is giving hope to others.” “She’s not back to normal,” Barca concluded, “but she’s going to be better. To me, she could be a symbol for New Orleans itself.”

 

This is Molly’s most recent prosthesis. The left side photo shows the ground surface that she stands on, which a smiley face has embossed in it. Wherever Molly goes, she leaves a smiley hoof print behind!

ASPCA Responds to Outcry Over “Starving Dog” Exhibit
Late last week the ASPCA joined the international animal welfare community concerning the rising swell of public distress regarding Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, a Costa Rican artist who allegedly chained up a starving stray dog in a gallery as a “work of art.”

Please visit www.fightcruelty.org to take the ASPCA’s Pledge to Fight Animal Cruelty.

Read Press Release – ASPCA Responds to Public Concern Over Alleged Animal Cruelty by Costa Rican artist

This is a very serious matter…

In the 2007, the ‘artist’ Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, he tied him to a rope in an art gallery, starving him to death.

For several days, the ‘artist’ and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful ‘masterpiece’ based on the dog’s agony, until eventually he died.

Let’s stop this horible person calling himself an Artist- Sign a petiton to stop him at  “Boicot a la presencia de Guillermo Habacuc Vargas en la Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008” – hosted on the web by a free online petition service, at: http://www.PetitionOnline.com/13031953/ .

I signed last week and I just hope this guy can be stopped.
