EDITION OF FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 2017 [PetPowellPress] It’s the end of the week and I hardly know where to start. So, I won’t. I’m handing the keyboard over to my assistant, The Senator, a wander-up cat.
What? Sorry. Looks like I’ll have to continue. Pay’s not good enough for The Senator. He suggests we help some dogs and notes that North Texas is the most fertile feline region in North America. I think he’s done an annual survey ever since he had his surgery. We don’t know when that was -- he’s one of only two pre-fixed animals to arrive in our care. That photo? He’d been reading something I wrote and couldn’t go on. He buried his face into the towel on his sleeping platform and began to regret having left the Senate. OK, let’s move on.
A FOUND DOG NEEDS A LOVING HUMAN
This one’s in the Denton McNatt Animal Shelter. She’s listed as Casey, #68421. Yep, our tipster is Amy Poskey. And here’s the situation: “This sweet baby is an 8 mo young female Black Mouth Cur/Labby mix who was found as a stray. Poor baby has not done well at the shelter and has been shut down ever since she arrived on 3/27. We were hoping she would come around but she huddles in the back of her kennel all day without moving. She hasn't tried to bite but doesn't want to interact with anyone so she hasn’t been vetted at this point. We think this angel needs to go to rescue and into a foster home where she will feel safe and loved. Bless her heart, she’s just scared. Look at the adorable face and those big, brown eyes!!!”

A FOUND DOG IN NEED
Dinesha Schmidt of A Different Breed Rescue gets a lot of appeals for help and this one came with two striking photographs of a beautiful dog who knows how to (a) nap and (b) ride in a car.
That is the perfect 21st century dog.
Dinesha forwarded the appeal from Joanne Wells. “I am certain you get a lot of request for help; I have for 13 years. I am not in a position to rescue anymore due to physical and financial restraints. With that said, I found a beautiful Blue Pit Bull mix yesterday that is not chipped and seems to have been dumped (same spot for 3 days and would not go to anyone except me).
“I cannot keep her for several reasons, but I wish so much that I could. I'm asking for help for her. She's amazingly sweet and smart.
“Please let me know asap as my elderly pit bull attacked her and she is in a friend’s garage.”

BEFORE YOU CLICK
I’m about to give you a Gofundme link for the efforts of quite possibly the most significant animal rescuer in the State of Oklahoma, Terry Lynn Fisher of Burns Flat. A friend of hers named Mena set up the site. We’ve been writing about Terry Lynn for quite a number of years. She’s got a load of rescued animals awaiting homes and transportation and needs some help -- 10 in boarding and several in kennels and fosters, too, she says. CAUTION: This link opens to an ugly wound photograph -- the kind of thing that Terry Lynn has been dealing with for years. Gunshot wounds, stabbing wounds, injuries caused by cars and by idiots. You can get in touch with her to offer to help get the dogs out of Burns Flat by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Here is Mena’s note to Terry Lynn: “I hope this helps. I appreciate all you always do. You helped me with one of mine many years ago. She would have died if you would not have helped. I thank you for that. I wish I could help with money but since I cannot, maybe this will help. Please take care of yourself. Your heart issues have me worried. you MUST rest some. Good luck with this. Let's knock these bills out. Love ya, Mena,”
CONTEMPLATIONS: Any Shia LaBeouf fans? You’ll enjoy THIS MOVIE REPORT. ... The Texas Rangers are 0-3. The bullpen has been so lousy it qualifies for a federal redevelopment grant. The team is one loss away from getting Arlington declared a disaster area. Surely things will get better. Surely. ... Hoarding? There’s something to contemplate. Yeah, at our house we’ve hoarded books, but at least most of them are in boxes. We brought ‘em with us from the 20th century -- before my funspouse Martha discovered the storage magic of ebooks. Here’s something important about hoarding, though, thanks to Linda Yarbrough, Director, Strategic Initiatives of the SPCA of Texas. Here’s the LINK and here’s the artwork.
