The Meaning of Rescue
Now that I'm home, bathed, settled and fed,
All nicely tucked in my warm new bed.
I'd like to open my baggage

Lest I forget,
There is so much to carry-
so much to regret.
Hmm...Yes there it is, right on top
Let's unpack Loneliness, Heartache and Loss,

And there by my leash hides Fear and Shame.
As I look on these things I tried so hard to leave-
I still have to unpack my baggage called Pain.

I loved them, the others, the ones who left me,
But I wasn't good enough-for they didn't want me.
Will you add to my baggage?
Will you help me unpack?
Or will you just look at my things-
And take me right back?

Do you have the time to help me unpack?
To put away my baggage,
To never repack?
I pray that you do-I'm so tired you see,

But I do come with baggage-
Will you still want me?

Madison comes with a full set of luggage, they tossed her away, she was bought as a puppy for the kids, the kids taught her nothing, except fear and regret, this was the only life she knew.  Now she is untrusting, she has a deep soul about her, but she will take time.  She needs a home that will just let her be, come around on her terms, I know she wants to, but dare she love anyone, that brings pain to her.  She can be nippy, unless she learns to know and trust you.  No children, adult home only, and only one that is willing to allow her space, time and love.  If you want a dog that will instantly bond, she is not that girl...but if you have a big heart and are willing to go the extra mile it takes, she will surprise you.
A gracious and kind hearted lady,took on her baggage, to throw away, and never to pack again.  Living happily with another rescue boy, who is just like Madison in The Dalles, Oregon

Can you spell Sweet:
S: Super
W: Wonderful
E:  Exceptionally
E:  Even tempered
T: Terrific
And if that doesn't describe him, how would you like a furbaby to crawl in your arms, put his head on your shoulder, and wrap himself into your heart...
So only people who enjoy these qualities need apply:-)
*Note: If any of you have been following Carina's story, you will see that this boy has become her surrogate Dad.  For the well being of Carina, Dayton will remain here for awhile, as he is helping this tiny puppy, and than on to find his perfect home. Dayton went to his perfect home, with his darling sister Sweet Pea, this is one of the most fabulous dogs, that was ever created, he helped safe a precious life.  Now being spoiled, as he should be, living in Snohomish, WA...have a great life my friend.

Mishekie (nka Kiley)
Female/spayed/shots current
4 years old
14 lbs.
*Sadly this darling lil girl passed to the bridge Aug/11, she had 9 wonderful years with her amazing parents, she is so missed*

You can call me Mishekie, but I usually go by Kye, when I hear my full name, I think I am in trouble, and how the heck could I ever be in trouble, I am just too nice, well Ok maybe I don't like the rain (heck do you like getting wet, and living here in the NW, I am always getting wet, so I put my brakes on) but I love it when it is warm and sunny outside, than I will happily be wandering around.  I like people, in fact I love people, I am a people kind of girl, I like other dogs, but big dogs scare me, so I don't want to live with any of them.  I like toys, and you will find me sleeping in the toy box. I really don't have any issues, but I have some quirks, sometimes when you pick me up, I squeal, not because you are hurting me, it is just me, I like to do this, for whatever reason, and since I am a girl, I don't have to have a reason, girls are always right aren't they?  I can live almost anywhere, as long as you love me, and give me time to love you back, after all I am a Lhasa, which means I am proud, smart, determined.  If you want to adopt me, here are the rules, no big dogs, you know the kind that are the size of a Dalmatian, lots of toys, let me sleep in your bed, and put down a wee pad when it is raining, cause I might not want to go outside, perhaps if you put your rain coat on also, I might be good, but no promises...and if I forget, you better love me to bits.  I also am VERY allergic to fleas, that is why I am sporting this horrible haircut, I got some hotspots from a flea biting me, and I needed attention to them, but if you keep those nasty bugs off of me, I do not have to look so ridiculous and have this awful short hairstyle.  I personally hate it, cause I have the most gorgeous coat...and PS if no one told you, I know obedience, but I am a Lhasa, so I might only be obedient if the mood strikes me.
I am not sure who has more fun, me or Kiley, when I converse with her new parents, I laugh so hard...she is their precious lil girl, and I am happy to have met such grand people...residing in Powell River, B.C. Canada

Hi, my name is Teddie, I was a lucky boy, a nice couple found me in the shelter in Ohio, I was a mess, my teeth so badly infected, my coat in shambles.  These people did not even know what kind of dog I was, except I needed help, so I did not get taken to the bridge before my time.  They cleaned me up, and got me healthy, eventually they moved back to Washington, and realized as much as they cared about me, I was not a dog that fit into their lifestyle, I am a sweet cuddly boy, who loves your lap, short walks (nothing long I might lay down), I love to sleep curled up with you, I like other dogs just fine, I have a wonderful, absolutely endearing personality, I think I have been mistaken for those other cute dogs, Shih Tzu, but I am just a good natured, and loveable boy.  I have not been around young kids, so I think I will stay away from them.  I like everyone though, sometimes I act a bit shy, but hey it is just an act, give me hugs and cuddles, and I will hug you back...oh yea, I like car rides, preferring a lap while driving, and I like to watch the world go by...
Well I certainly got the car ride, my new parents saw my picture, and hopped in the car, and drove all the way from Alberta, Canada, they said "he's the one" and darn they were right, cause they scooped down, and have given me the best home...and I got this great lil sister I am now a Canadian "eh"
