I have not written in my blog about me and my life for a while now. I thought it was time. We have been so busy trying to help pups like Phoenix and Atticus. Seeing them has made me see how really lucky I have been. Tonight, I am running around my home playing with my many toys. Humom just put one of those bandannas with my name on it on my collar for me. My pals Indy and Sasha sent them to me a while back. I really love them so much. I feel so good now. Humom tells me I smile all the time. I do!! She also tells me how beautiful I am. I have great fursis too! Lakota has taught me so much. I have learned to love and be loved. Most of all, I have learned to trust. I am always seeing my humom looking at me smiling. I think I make her happy. I have made so many wonderful friends. I never thought I would be where I am today. It will be one year coming early 2009. I have come so far. I will be going this month to get my heartworm test done. I know they are all gone, but you know humans. They have to be so picky! I know it is because I am loved. I cannot believe I am saying this. I am loved!!! Who would have thought one year ago I would be saying this. It feels wonderful!!!!!

FINALLY!! Humom got some new photos of me. Now I have to get her to get some new ones of my fursisters. She has been so busy as of late. She is really driving me crazy! She runs around like mad when she is home. Oh, do not worry, she has time for me and my fursis. She tells us that we come first no matter what!I am doing so great! Do you think I look beautiful?? Humom is always telling me I do.I have really learned what it is like to be a member of a family. I have my own bed, my own box, my very own FOOD BOWL AND WATER BOWL, but best of all I have learned what it is like to love and be loved. I even get to get on my humoms bed! She will lay beside me and pet and love me. This is my very favorite time of the day! Sometimes I have trouble getting that little Cocker Faith out of the way...BOL.We go to the park alot too!! I really love it there. There is a lake and trails in the woods there. We go for long walks there with my fursisters.I always see the funniest thing tho. People all standing around with these long poles in their hands. The poles have strings on them too. Humom tells me they are fishing for fish. She tells me the fish they catch looks like the sardines I get at dinner only bigger. WOW!! I think, but I can not have them. She tells me they are the kind humans eat. I have learned so much and still learning each day.

Arrival Story:
Phoenix was pick up by animal control in Paulding county Georgia. As you can tell, Phoenix had been on his own for quite sometime. He is a very tall boy, but only weighed in at 46 pds!! We do not know if he was left behind or just dumped by someone. His condition is typical of a puppy mill breeder dog. He is a perfect example that dogs CANNOT be left on their on and be expected to survive. He was then taken to the local animal shelter. Phoenix was there for 9 days. Finally his angel from Southern Cross German Shepherd Rescue came for him. Phoenix is now in foster care with Southern Cross.Phoenix has a very long road to recovery. He is very underweight, ear and skin infections. Plus the poor guy, of course, tested HW positive. Phoenix, even in his condition, shows all the love he has to give. What is it going to take for the human race to wake up and do something about this kind and other animal abuse!!
Phoenix is now at the University of Georgia with pneumonia, but with his very strong will to live seems to be recovering. Please pray for him.

My visit to see my Molly!!

Guess where I went today???? I went to visit my foster humom for the first time since being at my furever home!! I had a great time. She was so glad to see me and I her. She told me I looked soooooo beautiful! Did not take me but a few minutes and I was right at home. I chewed on bones, went for walks around the home, saw all my pals there, and best of all, I got a lot of love from my Molly!!! It was a great day!

My Special Vistor

Hello everyone!! I had a visitor today. You are not going to believe who it was!! It was the girl that came and got me out of the horrible place they call animal control. She picked me up there then took me to a vet in a near by town where I had to stay for two nights. She came back and picked me up there. We drove for over five hours to meet my foster humom. She helped save my life!!!! When I saw her, I knew I knew her. When she got closer, I remembered her. At first, I thought she might be going to take me away, but humom help me get over that. I then gave her many kisses of thanks. Humom thanked her a bunch too!! It was good to see her again. It kind of made me feel even more at home. Speaking of home. Humom made us a family page! It feels so good to say family page!! Please go and see our FAMILY PAGE . I am so excited about it.Take care my friends. Love to all!!

We went on our first walk out of the BOX! Plus we had a pawty. I sure had so much fun and did so well. Humom and I know I am going to be just fine now. With me now ready to start a new exciting life, I have something to say. I went through so very much. Everyone has been such a friend and so very kind to me and my humom. I am one of the lucky ones! As you know, I have been through alot, but I have made it. You know why?? It is because I never lost hope. Even when I was at the shelter. So very sick and sad. I had just lost my pups. It looked like I was about to loose my life. Through all of this, some place very deep down inside, I still held a small glimmer of hope. Some humans at the shelter talked to me so kind, but I knew it was almost over. Even with this, I would very slighty still wag my tail. This is how humans can tell if we have any hope left in us. I got lucky and you know the rest of the story. Some are not so lucky! So many pups are still wagging their tail till the end. They still have hopes to play and mostly just to have some human to love. Really makes no sense. Such a desire to love the very one who hurts us. It is only who we are and what we do. We are really angels of love. I am so lucky to be where I am, but sad for the ones who left this world hoping.Thanks all of you. Love to all!!

I want to let all of you know, I have 5 more days in the BOX!!! I can hardly wait. My humom is having a pawty for me on the 23. She said my local pals will be here. We are having something called frosty paws. She said I will really like that! I will be going on my first walk that day too! It has been a long time since I got to go walking. I am just so excited!!
Next thing I will be doing is going on a PetSmart trip. I am not yet sure what that is, but humom said I will love it. She also said I can pick anything I like out and she will get it for me.
She said that have alot of toys, bones to chew, and even clothes for dogs. I said "CLOTHES". I do not want any clothes like humans wear!! I do not want to hurt humoms feelings, but I sure hope she does not want me to get something like that.
My next trip will hopefully be to visit my foster humom Molly. She saved my life and I want so badly to thank her. I want her to see how great I am doing now.
I will keep you posted on my trips!!

I only have 15 more days!!!!!!!!! I cannot wait until this is all behind me. I am doing really well and full of energy. I am giving my humom a really hard time. She wants me to be calm. I want to run like the wind. I guess it is because I have never been able to really run or even walk free.My humom has all kinds of fun plans for me and I can hardly wait!! It is getting really hot here. I am so glad I live with AC now...BOL. It feels so good to come in from the hot and get cool so fast. I was dreaming in my sleep today. My humom said I was crying. She said she wishes she new what bad thing I was dreaming about. I have forgotten it now. I am still a bit afraid of new people. My humom friend was over today. I like her, but I just am not so sure yet. I hope I did not hurt her feeling. I will get better cause I have already improved so much,I hope all of you are doing well and enjoying the summer. I will be talking to all of you later. Love to all!!

Last Treatment Is Done!!!

Hello everyone. I am BACK HOME! I got home Sat. around 10am. When I got home my tummy began to get upset. I start to feel safe at my new home, then the next thing I know, I am back at that strange scary place. There are a lot of dogs barking and strange people all around there. These strange people poke me with sharp things. I get really afraid my humom is not coming back for me. This is why my tummy gets so upset. Humom had some meds for me this time, so I am feeling much better. I am back in that box. Humom said only one month! It is going to be a long month!!I have two big shaved spots on my back. This is where they poked me with those sharp things. Humom is calling them my racing stripes. She said she is going to take a photo of them cause they look so funny. I am doing good. I stay really thirsty. I just want to drink and drink. They say that is from the HW treatment meds. I will drink until I get sick, but humom stops me before that happens. I am eating good now that I am home. The strange people did not make my food right. I would get so mad about it. I tried telling them about it by spilling my food. They just would not listen. Humom says I have to get back in the box. I will let you know how it is going. Take care my friends!!

My Last Vet Trip And The Mean Man

I am feeling so good these days. My humom told I would be going back to the vet this coming Thursday. She said she has to make sure those horrible HW are all gone. I told her, please believe me, they are gone. She said we cannot be sure, so I must go back one last time. I will have to stay TWO NIGHTS this time. I really am dreading that.I worry my humom is not coming back for me. Last time, I got so worried I got sick. My humom told me, I never have to ever worry about that. She said she would never leave me. She is always telling me how much she loves me. This makes me feel some better about it, but I am still afraid.One thing that has been so good about all of this is, I have gotten so many cool things to chew on. You see, I love to chew on stuff. My humom tells me when the treatment is all done she is going to take me to a big store. One that is just for us animals. I never knew there was a store like that. She said I could pick out anything I wanted. WOW!! I can hardly wait for that. I am going to get all kinds of things to chew.She said Lakota and Faith would be coming too. I guess we cannot leave my fursis out.She said we would also go to something called a dog park. A park for just us dogs?? I can hardly believe it. My new life is going to be so great as soon as the horrible HW are gone. I will let you know how it goes at the vet.
My humom and I have some bad news The mean man that took me to AC to be put to my death will not be charged. My humom and I are very saddend by this. They may be investigating the man that had me before the mean man. He was mean too. I have never had a good life until now. I am so happy and ready to run and play. If you want to read the story about the mean man getting away, here is the link:
Thank s to everyone for all their time spent helping humom try and get justice for me. We are hoping it is not over yet!!!

Waiting To Get Out Of The Box

Whew!!! I am getting so tried of my humom keeping me in this box. She tells me it is for my safety. That I could get real sick if I move around to much.
I have to believe her. You see, I got really sick about three days after I got my first HW treatment shot. My tummy was all messed up. I am so much better now. I just want to play and play with my fursis. I have heard I have about seven more weeks of this. If I am not in the box, my humom has me on a leash at all times. My humom says, I am her right arm, not to worry.
My humom is looking kind of tired. She has been working really hard writng letters etc. She wants justice not just for me, but for all dogs that have met such horrible fates as I have and prevent as many in the future. She will be just fine after a good nights sleep.
I want to thank everyone that has or is planning on signing my petition for justice and spreading the word. Every signature counts and touches us deeply for the show of concern and outrage.
We have been so blessed to have met so many wonderful people. The kindness we have received has been so wonderful and gives us courage to continue pressing forward in demanding answers and justice!

We are going to try and get on this talk radio show tomorrow. The station is called blog talk radio. The show is the Pawscause, hosted by Leigh Foster. Better known as DJ Ice. She has offered to get our story out all around the world. My humom just does not understand what the media is so afraid of. Reporters seem interested in my story at first, then they seem to get scared away by someone or something. Humom says if this person or persons does not get what is coming to them at least everyone will know about it. She says you know how karma works!
This is the link to the radio show:
Check it out tomorrow. The show time is 4:30 we think. We are going to start calling early. We do not want to miss it.
Humom is going to try and get some new pictures of me this weekend. She will be posting a couple soon.
I am off to have my dinner now. I cannot even eat my dinner of the leash...BOL
Take care and PLEASE remember you HW monthly treat!!!
I want to also ask you to please visit and sign this petition for yet another case of K-9 handler abuse:

First Round of Heartworm Treatment

My first round of HW treatment was done on Thursday April 24th. I am home now. I had to say in the hospital overnight. Whew!!! I was afraid my humom was not going to come back for me, but she did.
When we got home, I was so happy to see everyone. Lakota was happy to see me. I could tell!!
Then my humom put me in this box! I just could not understand this. I heard he tell her friend, I was going to have to stay in here for a month! Then I heard her say, I was going to have to go back to the vet and do it all over again.
I am starting to get a little depressed. My humom lets me come out and sit by her when she is watching TV, but she keeps a leash on me.
At night I do get to sleep in my bed in the bedroom with the door shut.
Humom says I am doing great. I will just be so glad when this is over. I thank my humom will too.
I guess I will just lie here and think about the happy life I have coming. I cannot wait!!
Please keep all your dogs on HW preventative!!
My humom started a petition for me. She said it is to try and get justice for the horrible things I had to endure. Please sign it for her. Here is the link:
Thank you!! Hannah:)

Justice for Hannah

My life so far would of read like a tragedy until very recent days. Brought in at four years of age to be euthanized. Pregnant, starving, flat footed, full of heartworm and despair, I gave birth to three stillborn pups. I was rescued by angel foster mom Molly of a GSD rescue group and adopted by new humom Wanda. Through all of this there was an investigation. With rumors swirling that her previous owner was tied to the law enforcement and K9 unit, we were anxious for answers and updates. We have so far been given hardly anything besides many unreturned emails and calls or to contact someone else who has also ignored our requests. We are even more concerned because this man supposedly has other dogs in his possession including one to replace me as the "puppy maker". There is a media station that is interested in my story. I would like them to know the concern for myself and those living in conditions like I did, reaches far past Georgia where I live and that we would like to know if anything will be done about it or is it simply accepted to have innocents pay for such misdeeds.
Please use the power of the paw and hand and email the reporters at the news station provided with the link below, let them know your concern and include your state to show how far this concern and support extends. If you click on the reporters' bios their emails are provided and many you will see they have their own dogs and are dog lovers. My friend Lena Malik suggests you mention this notice as she also reminded them of the recent national media attention on puppy mills and unethical breeding by Oprah. To simplify things she emailed the main reporter and "cc:" the other reporters and producers. This is where the efforts of many to voice their concerns could really make a difference. Thank you, we continue to seek justice! Hannah & family
Report for Hannah

Counting down the days

Life like I never knew possible. I have a family and a place to call home. Wake up each day to humom greeting me and set to slumber in the midst of my furkin with a gentle touch and kind word. Simple daily routines I marvel at, like going for walks. Seeing new sights, sniffing and listening to the world around me, all these new, wondrous adventures! Some people may forget I am a young dog but I need to build my muscle, my strength and stamina. I am working on not being so flat footed and chasing confidence with the support of my humom and family. My vet has decided to move my heart worm treatment up. The case is severe and I must tackle this hurdle as soon as possible. The date for the first treatment process is April 21st, please keep us in your thoughts. I know humom is probably more anxious than I. I love this new life and we need to ensure I will have the best possible chance to live it the way I should. I like many others are a constant reminder how people can prevent such medical challenges if they simply hold up to their responsibilities and provide vet care to the pets that depend on them. With the generous donations and gifts from friends and concerned people & pups, my humom is able to amend my own experience with neglect.
Although I knew years of sadness and mistreatment, it has only taken weeks for me to trust and accept new possibilities of life. Us animals may be at the receiving end of some of the ugliest human actions but we also are willing to hope and believe in human kindness and love. Thank you friends for helping me see this is possible.

Barking more and more!!

I am starting to feel comfortable in my new home. Everyone's love is making me stronger each day.Today, I am feeling more at ease with my voice. Each time Lakota barks, I feel the need to bark. It feels wonderful!!! Now if I can only stop my humom from crying each time I bark...BOL I even gave my new humom a kiss on the face. You know what she did? Yep you are right. She cried again. She says not to worry. It is only tears of joy. My new humom has to go back to work tomorrow. I know I will miss her, but I am glad I have Lakota and Faith with me. She told me she wishes she could just stay at home with me. Take care my friends!!

Trip to my new Vet

My vet visit is now behind me. My humom was very happy when we left the vet. She said everything went really well there. I do not know what she is talking about. I hated it! I was mad a my humom all the way home. I am over it now tho.The vet said I look really good. My heart and lungs looked great on the xrays. I had another HW test. The baby HW test was negative, but the adult one was a strong positive. The vet moved my HW treatment up to April the 21. I am really nervous about it. Everyone is telling me not to worry, but it is hard not to. I was not sure where I was headed after that vet. I was so glad to see I returned to my new home! Love to to all!

I found my voice today!!!

**********I know I will learn how to smile soon.************

Hello to all my wonderful pals. My new family and I was getting ready to go for a walk. There was this strange dog coming down our street. Lakota (my fursis) was going crazy barking. That is when it just came out. I barked twice!!! I tried to bark more, but it just would not come. My humom said not to worry, more will come in time. She was so happy she started to cry!!

Please check my dogster photo book. My humom has put a few more pictures of me there. She has been just going crazy with the flashing thing!!

Tonight, I just was not hungry. I ate good this morning, though this evening I just pushed my food around in my bowl with my nose. Then I flipped my bowl over with my nose. My humom said " Hannah do you not like you food here?". I like it fine cause I ate it this morning and last night. I just was not hungry....which feels good.

Well that's all for now. I will let you know about my trip to my new vet fares. Take care my pals. I love all of you, your thoughts & support really does matter to this thankful pup!

So much joy....

All the friends I have made, the strength & love others have bestowed on me, forever my humom and I will be grateful. Thank you for taking the time to send me a kind word and encouragement, for befriending me, gifting me and most importantly making me feel validated in this big, big world even though I am just a dog. I feel I am being gifted with all this kindness I never knew existed to teach me a lesson and prove to others that one who never gives up and simply wants a place in the world can cling to the belief that there are sunny days ahead when you least expect it.
Today I went home, finally find myself in my forever home and an acknowledged family member. I will update tomorrow and leave you with this one last more joins you pups that slumber safely within the compounds of a loving pack, I am one of the fortunate that knows I can sleep safe this night and many more to come. I feel very blessed. Thank you all!

The journey home

I know my humom and friends are anxious to hear an update in the ongoing investigation. So far no word. People have been kind enough to write to the sheriff, lead investigator and county chairman on my behalf. I will relay whatever news comes my way.

I will be leaving my foster home and going to my new family on April 5th. It will truly feel like spring for me, a new chance, a new beginning with humans and furkins to call my own.

I have a vet appointment on Monday and I know my new humom and vet will make the best plans for my recovery.
The treatment is not going to be the quick kill kind. Is is much safer and for me it is the best cause I have been through so much. I will get a lot of blood work, x rays, then my humom and Dr. will talk. When my treatment begins I will have to stay in the hospital for 2 day. Then when I have the next round I will again be in the hospital. My humom could get the quick kill treatment done for about 300.00. She wants to go the safer route so I will get close care. She says I need this cause I have been in such bad condition. She was quoted the cost would be between 670.00 and 750.00. She will be getting a 10% discount off that cause I am a rescued dog. The clinic is Winder Corners Animal Clinic in Winder, Georgia. Although most of us pups dislike going to the vet I know I am very lucky to have this life saving opportunity.
When I was taken into the shelter, I was pregnant. Due to my poor health I gave birth to three still born pups. Fate could not change this event but hopefully it will be the end of my loss and sadness. A friend wrote a tribute for me and my lost babes and I find comfort in knowing one day I will be reunited with them.

"Rainbow Bridge's Special Delivery" by Lena Malik

What must have crossed your mind sweet Hannah, fighting to live yet trying to nourish your unborn. To give finally give birth and yet not hear whimpers or see movement for you patience and pain. Let me try to explain dear friend, Hannah the brave.

We all know of the Rainbow Bridge we will cross in our given time. We know beyond it is filled with dogs of all breeds, backgrounds and dispositions. There are dogs of all ages there that miraculously are bestowed the health they had as young, strong pups ready for anything and the endless possibilities of adventures and experiences.
But there is an occasion, few below the clouds know about because it is rarely shared. It is such a special occasion that it heralds all the pups to the gate. Making the trek from vast fields takes hours, perhaps even days but all hear the twinkling bells of the highest chorus that a special entry awaits. At the front of the line gather mother pups and matriarchs. Their balance of patience and nurture allows them to lead the welcome of all dogs waiting at the gates.
On the other side, behold, a basket. Tucked into the blanket are three tiny pups. Huddled together for safety and warmth with eyes still shut and warm puppy breaths. The gates open and the dogs move forward, silently and stoically for they know the gift presented here. These are the purest of souls, shaped on earth with a glimmer of time they were whisked away up towards the heavens. Because everyone knows who has ever befriended a dog that they seek to be a part of a family...what is family without the young and old. And all who have taken the time to know a dog recognizes how all guards are lowered when pups are involved. Over the Rainbow Bridge cannot be whole without the presence of newborn pups. For those who have lost their own at first breath, for those awaiting their children below, for those who battle trusting other grown dogs and those who wished to nurture, teach and guide. Their heaven would not be complete without such special gifts as pups who's journey was destined straight through the Rainbow Bridge. Don't worry Hannah, your babes will recognize you when they greet you at your time. And they will have the love and guidance of the dogs who have crossed and await with them for the most special homecoming and family reunion. So although we grieve such newfound loss on earth, high above a special gift awaits and will be treasured.

Hannah finds hope

My name is Hannah and I have a story to share. Although it continues to be written I can share what has transpired and the hopeful future I look to longingly. Sadly my case is not unique but with the help of kind people and the support of many perhaps I will give others hope and inspiration as well.
Thank you for visiting me, for taking the time to hear my story. It is only by the kindness of others I find the possibility of living happily and safely in a loving and nurturing home.

Hannah's story (by her new humom)

Hannah was owned by a law enforcement K-9 handler. He obtained Hannah for breeding purposes only. He began breeding her at a very young age. He sold the pups to make money. Hannah was starved and who knows what else. She was kept confined to the point that all her muscles atrophied. After so much breeding and abuse, she was no longer any good to him . He took her to the local animal control to be euthanized. She gave birth to 3 still born pups at the shelter. Thank goodness word got out and Southern Cross German Shepherd took her in. Hannah was in very bad shape. She was taken to the vet. As soon as she got enough strength she was spayed. When her uterus was removed it was full of cystic nodules. She also tested a very strong heartworm positive and must undergo treatment as soon as she is strong enough. I heard about her through a friend. I wanted to take some much needed supplies to the rescue group that rescued her. That is when I met Hannah. She stole my heart. To have gone though what she has she is still so very sweet with so much love to give. I want do give her a normal life for the rest of her life. Lakota (soon to be furkin) will teach her how to be a dog. She has yet to bark. It is her time now!!
