On My Soapbox and PUPPIES!

On Saturday, I get to take part in transporting ELEVEN Shiba Inus from a puppy mill in Arkansas to their new foster homes. This is one of my greatest passions, saving these animals from certain death, or from lives lived solely in a crate, producing litter after litter of puppies. The last time I did […]

Resolution Disillusion

New Year’s Resolutions make me stabby. There’s just so much PRESSURE.
