Billy don't be a hero...


Just can't stop singin that song! Here is our new dog, Billy, straight from the Peke rescue. They sure had our number. My pal Joyce called and asked if we would like him on a "trial basis". Ha ha, of course, the trial period was over as far as I was concerned by the end of the phone call. Today we took him to our vet, as he seems to be perpetually ticked off about the little "nuetering" issue from a week ago. Honestly, I thought it was psychological but felt a professional opinion would be in order just to be sure. That professional opinion resulted in even more humiliation for good natured Billy, as the pic demonstrates.

Anyhoo, we are blissfully happy to welcome Billy to the family. You will surely be hearing lots more about him!

Awww.. he's so cute. Even with the collar on. How did you decide on the name "Billy" or was he already named when you adopted him?

Pekingese (sp) rescue?

Are they really in danger of something?

There are millions of abandoned and neglected dogs throughout the nation... and hundreds of homeless but otherwise loveable dogs and cats are euthanized by the humane society evey week right here in Peoria County. Nobody derives any pleasure from this. It is an undisputed fact that there are far more animals than homes for them. If animal lovers were required to spend even one week volunteering at the shelter they would never again buy a puppy or kitten from a breeder or a pet store. Unfortunately, many self professed animal lovers ignorantly exasperate the problem by patronizing breeders who create puppies for profit, or purchase puppies in a pet store. "Rescue" Organizations are just one more tool available to try to save a discarded pet from certain doom.
