Share It Sunday’, Guest Blog The Lonely Dogs!


Nominated by last week’s guest Dianes’ Kitchen Table!

Our Share It Sunday Christmas Special!

A collection of stories told through photographs, and occasionally with words, about the Twenty-three incredible rescue dogs that share their lives with me in Mexico. Kathryn

And finally

Rocket, rarely captured on film, the big brother & protector of Christmas!



 About me!


Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
I am originally from Canada and now make my home in Mexico.  My home is in fact a shelter for 23 dogs, a whole lot of rescue horses, and two lovely cats.  There is another Hominid here at the ranch, and this is his great effort as well, but he does prefer to remain separate from the blog and so with all respect he shall.
Some 200 dogs have passed through our home and our hearts… taken off the street, out of the pound, and away from various dire situations; to be adopted out to loving forever homes. Of those 200 there are always the ones that are a challenge. They have a certain dark and ominous shadow looming behind them, a shadow which is made up of other people saying “why don’t you just put them down?”.  This is not said because they are suffering in any kind of way (peace and freedom is always most lovingly granted to those in need) but is said instead because of the amount of time and care they are obviously going to need.
You just know what their fate will be if you part with them.
Those are the dogs that make up my pack of 23.  They are the overly aggressive or shy, they are the ones that pee and bark too much, they have hip dysplasia and are deaf, they are mangy and have terrible breath (beyond dog breath), they have had disease and will never be completely well again, they climb onto the dining room table when I am not looking and sometimes when I am, and what might not be so readily obvious to some but shines through clear to me (and is the reason I created this blog) is that they are all, each and every one of them, beautiful, special, loving, and deserving of love.
Hopefully everyone will make an appearance here eventually, but as of yet not everyone is so comfortable with the camera, or won’t slow down long enough to try it out!
I really hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Kathryn

  3. How lovely that you can squeeze so many little souls into your loving home. Some dogs can't be re-homed but still have a lot to give. I have enjoyed walking rescue dogs at our local terrier rescue this year, most have been hurt or have hurt someone, are confused, misunderstood or angry and all have lots of affection to give. I can't have a dog of my own, but visiting these dogs is very rewarding. I get to cuddle them, groom them and walk them. Betty
