Ziggy and Elly are two-year-old Westies, sisters from the same litter. They are a bonded pair that came to Sunshine State Westie Rescue (SSWR) in Florida as owner turn-ins. Due to family issues, the owner felt she didn’t have enough time to spend with these girls. Because they are a bonded pair, SSWR wants to place them together. They need a single person, couple, or family that has patience and is willing to finish the Westies’ training and socialization as both are quite shy.

Well, it’s been crazy busy at Animal Rescue of Fresno, and this blazingly hot weather is making us all a little nuts. Despite soaking our hats, downing gallons of water, and even cooling off with garden hoses, we volunteers just keep sweating ourselves silly. This unbearable heat is like a never-ending blast furnace, destroying any brain cells we have left.

Last month, Feral Paws Rescue received a call from the CCSPCA Shelter to rescue several kittens, mostly Torties, which they did. The kittens were brought to their main rescue location. At the same time, there was a dilute Tortie female who had been at the shelter along with her kittens.

Puppy Fest is set up similar to the annual Puppy Super Bowl. It’s a fundraiser for a local shelter run by Jane Brody. Her dad is Lou Brody, always referred to that way, never as Dad. Lou was married three times and has nine kids. They know how much he’s worth and none of them, including grandkids, are happy about the amount of money he’s left to charity in his will. Of late, he’s given thought to increasing that amount which in turn, increases their unhappiness.

It is dark, totally dark, and the pain, the pain is excruciating. Caitlin Hart slowly regains consciousness seeing a cat, a black cat, purring softly next to her. There’s been an accident; the smell of gasoline and smoke spurs her to get up and out of the ditch. At the top of the rise she sees a body lying on the side of the road; she definitely needs to get help. A stranger drives by barely missing the cat in the road, and shares his phone allowing Cait to call for help. He, then, disappears. The cat disappears, and after help arrives and Caitlin leads all to the man on the side of the road…he has disappeared, too.

Sabrina Tate is supposed to be writing her mystery book, but it’s so easy to get sidetracked with all the goings on in Lavender, Texas. This time it’s the annual Pumpkin Days. Things wouldn’t be quite so hectic if she could only control her Aunt Rowe. She’s in charge of the pumpkin cannon. That’s right, pumpkins shot out of a cannon—what could go wrong?

FBR always stands behind our dogs, and when a dog is adopted we are ready with open arms should they need to come back to us. Peaches is one of those dogs, and is proof that third time is a charm!

Fort Worth Police Officer Megan Luz never wanted to be a police dog handler, so she never expected that her partnership with K-9 shepherd-mix Brigit could be so rewarding. Megan’s options were limited after she tasered her previous partner, a human so rude and sexist that his being called a dog would have been an insult to canines. So Megan is fortunate to have Brigit along when responding to a domestic disturbance call from Adriana Valdez, who is accusing her ex-boyfriend of being a stalker.
