trying something new here. We have tried all kinds of air
filters without much luck. The ones I have worked with all
end up filled with dog hair and dirt, expensive for filters
and simply don't work or don't last. Last weekend I brought
home a new Triad Aer
http://www.triadaer.com purifier and just over a week I
am seeing huge changes. The first thing I noticed was that
the dust motes that hang in the air are gone. The air seems
clear and cooler. I have also been having fewer issues with
my asthma and Wickett my seasonal allergy dog is having
fewer issues. It is tough for me to determine if there is
change in any odors, but I have someone who comes in the
mornings to help me and she says, even though we didn't have
bad odors, she smells an improvement with this new filter.
I have created a page where I will be
posting updates we see changes in our environment. I
will also include questions and comments from others - good or
bad. I am way curious about the experiences of others.
FYI - we
moved our fund raiser into You Caring rather than Go Fund Me.
The fees from Go Fund me were higher than we felt necessary.

We currently have quite a few dogs available so it may take a bit of time.
Breed: Pomeranian/Chihuahua Mix
Gender: Emma, Female - Wilbur, Male
Age: 3 to 4 years
Weight: Approximately 8 - 9 lbs.
Emma and Ernie
came from a Southern Oregon Shelter. They are way
sweet kids who have been through quite a lot. They
have flea and food allergies, as well as mites. We
have the mites conquered now and are working to get their
infected skin under control. Ernie's skin is the most
irritated as you can see in the pictures, but every day it
I will not be
splitting these two up as they are very bonded.

***Special Needs - Heart Issues***
Dayton is a
super sweet guy who needs someone to love and care for him.
When he arrived here he was suffering from an enlarged heart
that was putting pressure on his trachea and affecting his
breathing. We have him on the right heart meds and he
is a different dog. Playful and outgoing with no more
signs of a cough. He is looking for a great home who
will provide him the Vet care follow ups and heart
medications he needs. Super sweet boy who just wants
to be with someone who loves him.
Dayton is on enalapril and vetmedin once a day, then we have
hydrocodone for coughing as needed (8-12 hours). There was
no fluid issues, so no Lasix. Now that the heart meds are
working we have not needed to use the hydrocodone for a
couple of days. He takes the pills in a pill pocket happily.
As sustaining I would expect the cost for the current meds
to be about $25 a month. He will need regular six month
blood work to monitor his system and our vet is recommending
an annual x-ray to monitor heart size. He will be getting a
new x-ray on Friday so we can compare to the early one when
he arrived. At the first vet weight he was 8.6 lbs - a bit
overweight. Since he has been here he is on a measured diet
and is feeling quiet fit. I am anxious to weigh him on the
vet scale for comparison. He does great with the other dogs
and has shared the bowl with my dog friendly cat. He is not
neutered - our vet does not advise it at this time because
of the heart issues. We will be discussing that further with
her on Friday, but will make the decision based on his
health needs. Her take was that she wanted him to be more
stable for at least 6 months before undergoing impacts of
sedation. He is improving so quickly though that might
change. AND -Amazingly enough for an 11 year old
little dog - he has most of his teeth and his gums look
Dayton's vet visit went great today. Doc opted not to do an
other x-ray, she indicated that he is so much improved it is
going to be better to wait six months before doing another.
We got his Rabies and she ok'd him to leave the area any
time. She did not recommend neutering him at this time. She
said at this point she recommends waiting until he needs a
dental or is sedated for some other reason. Best not to
undergo sedation for now. SO - now we just need to find the
below were when he first arrived. He has lost a full
pound of weight and is feeling so much better in the above
Two weeks ago he wouldn't have been able to manage the 15
minute photo shoot and walk without collapsing from
Now he just wants to play, play, play.

Stacy looking for a loving home to spend the rest of her

-Josie & Camper-
Breed: Shih Tzu
Gender: Female & Male
Age: ~7 and 10 years
Weight: Approximately 8 lbs.
Josie and Camper are Shih Tzu's who have been together their
whole lives. We will be placing them in a home together.
Affectionate and engaging
kids. Their original owner passed away and his daughter was
caring for them. She lost her place to live because of them
and became homeless. They have lived with a couple of other
people while she was trying to get her live together and she
decided it was in their best interests to surrender them to
someone who could find them the perfect home where they will
live the rest of their lives.
These two bonded kids are in need of a wonderful and loving
Age: 3-4 years
Weight: Approximately 5 lbs.
Jackson has returned to us, through no fault of his own.
The senior Yorkie in the house was not able to adjust to the
new addition. Jackson was originally surrendered by a
family member from an abusive situation. He is doing
very well but we are looking for a home with no young
children. The placement indicates that he was doing
great with piddle pad training and responding to her very
well. We advise that a vet do his toenails, possibly
with a bit of a sedative as he gets super upset with that.
