Two service dog sites launched!

It’s been quiet on the dog acting front the past couple of months (if you see something I’ve missed feel free to contact me using the contact us link at the top of this page or on our forums) I’ve had the time to set up other venues.

I’ve always been a supporter of service dogs so I’ve launched two new service dog sites:

  • Florida Service Dogs.com a service dog community primarily for people in Florida (but anyone is welcome) for teams and trainers to plan get togethers and talk about service dog related topics.
  • Service Dog Friendly a review site for service dog teams (and where applicable, trainers) to review establishments (etc.) on how they are towards service dogs. The site is simple now (use a contact form to submit a review) but I do plan on eventually having a site similar to Yelp.

Feel free to check out the two new sites!

Vlcak Antis – a true wolfdog hero (that deserves a movie)

Vlčák Ant – Hrdinný Letec RAF

Wolfdog Antis – Czechoslovakian RAF Wolfdog Hero

We’ve all seen and heard about canine action heroes starring Strongheart, Rin Tin Tin, and Lassie but during World War II a wolfdog named Antis would prove to be a real life canine hero. Born in a French kennel in 1940 Antis was destined to play a big role with the Czechoslovakian RAF as well as a symbol of dedication and freedom to the Czechoslovakian people for decades to come.

Colorado wildfires are hitting a large wolf sanctuary

Right now wildfires in Colorado are hitting Wolf Sanctuary in Bellvue, Colorado. They were able to evacuate 13 out of 30 wolves before the fire hit but there are still 17 wolves in the sanctuary that are now in fire bunkers in the complex (with 75-100 gallons of water per wolf). At last report (last night around 8PM eastern time) the fire had hit the sanctuary. Staff are trying to get back to the sanctuary but the roads are closed by fire marshals.

They will need a lot of help to rebuild. If you are in the Bellvue, CO / Fort Collins area you can contact them if you have supplies. If not in the area (or even if you are) money is always the best donation. You can donate on their donation page. Even a donation of $5 can be a help.

Let’s prey that the staff and wolves are safe.

You can get news on their Facebook Page but updates are slow due to the circumstances. I do have a friend who is in contact with some of the staff – I will update this post when I get news.

A “political” page has been added.

I’ve added a political page up (you can clock on the link or the political link in the menu bar). There are many acts and bills in the US Congress that deal directly with animal welfare and should be brought to light. Each entry will have links to PopVox (more popular) and OpenCongress (buggy but lets you email your representatives and senators directly).

I am putting these in their own page because I know not all visitors are in the USA and some do not want to see politics all over this site. This way they are available to those who want to see it but out of the way so not everyone has to read it.
