Blog Transforming and Might Take A Little Time


Matilda here. Mom and Michael my walker and best friend sat in front of the computer today and did many things that involved some clicking sounds, and funny words, like “Whaaaat?!!!!!!”, and “Helllppp!!!???”

Mom isn’t sure what is happening right now. For example, will you get this post? If you do, she wants you to be aware that there might be a lag between posts, and then the blog will look a little different. Oh dear, she just realized that she likes the way this looks. I hear her in the background making a funny little screamy-sound. She’ll be alright.

I will post a photo of my walker and Liv, Kes, and me.


A Tip of the Snout To Ya,



Adopt This Adorable Cairn Terrier Who has Been Released From a Breeding Facility

Equality 2 Equality 3Equality, (currently known as Izzie), is a wheaten-colored sweetheart who is finally getting to live a life of pleasure and leisure after being used for many years to breed. Her little face is angelic, and she has a bit of timidity, but she loves people and dogs. She has a gentleness to her, and is just learning to love having her belly rubbed. Sometimes you might see her rolling on her back in the grass to get a good back scratch, and hear her little feel-good groans.  She gets along with all six of the dogs in her foster home. Food is another favorite of hers.

I know that I would love to have her here in my home. It would feel so good to have this little cuddle-bug safe and sound and comfortable after all those years of having puppies.  She is currently in Arkansas, but the wonderful  Col Potter Cairn Terrier Rescue Group can transport her to your geographical area.

Pet Taxi New York: Reliable, Dependable, Important

tilsniffingcarI did a story a while back on Matilda’s transportation issues. She is a big dog, and had to go to the vet  at least once a week for over six months. (She was getting chemotherapy for Lymphoma, and is now in remission). She had developed a bit of a phobia of cars, and after I would lift her into a car service, she would not lie down. That left her standing up, panting like crazy, with me sitting in front of her, twisting around toward her and lifting my arms up to hold her so that she wouldn’t fall off the seat and into the footwells. Yikes! Extremely stressful.


When I found Pet Taxi New York, it was nearly life-saving. The owner figured a way to configure the minivan so that Matilda had a little area to lie down, and I could sit on the seat right behind her. I would also bring her favorite comforter and spread it out for her. Even more amazing is that he would very gently lift Matilda into the minivan. In fact, one time when we were bringing her home after a set-back and hospitalization, Matilda was very weak, and the owner carried her all the way in to the elevator. I wasn’t sure that Matilda could have made it. Matilda also loves the owner and other drivers. Everyone is especially nice and very supportive. They are all dog people and adore dogs.

Disclaimer: I am writing this review because I like the business so much, and did not receive any payment for it.


I highly recommend Pet Taxi New York.

Adorable Loving Schnoodle (Schnauzer/Poodle Mix) Needs Home

ImageBroderick  the Schnoodle Speaks:

Those people at Col. Potter Cairn Rescue are so funny! Here I am, a Poodle-Schnauzer combination, and they rescued me!!! Aren’t they the best. I was on the street, and they took me in. They even had a DNA test done on me, so I would know my genealogy. My foster mom says I’m a boy who loves to sit on the couch with her and watch TV. She tells people that I am smart, house-broken, and pretty calm. My favorite things are people and toys! I will run around carrying my toy and take it everywhere with me. I am kind of sad because I have been in foster care for a long time, and everyone keeps saying that I will get my very own home with my very own permanent person to love, but it never happens. I also live with five Cairn Terriers.  I think you might be getting my drift. 

So please, don’t be prejudiced about my age. I’m 9 years old, but small dogs live long lives. My friend who I am dictating this to had a little poodle who lived until she was 18 years old. Oh, and did I mention how smart both Poodles and Schnauzers are? (You might even want to read the piece on this blog about Mouschi the Therapy Dog Poodle).

So, please consider me. I’m a love. Go to:


Fill out an application and make the best decision you’ve ever made in your life! I’m in North Carolina, but the Rescue Group will transport me.
