Hurt foster dog needs our help.

I am a formerly homeless dog who was fortunate to be taken in by a rescue.  I will never forget that kindness and try very much to help dogs who are in a similar situation or worse.  Today I ask everyone to please read about Charlie, a sweet dog who was taken in and being fostered by Eleven Eleven Animal Rescue in Montreal.  He was hit by a car and badly injured.  The rescue needs money for his surgery.   You can read more about Charlie's injuries and see what a sweet vital dog he is here:

If you can give any money to help him, that is wonderful.   If that is not possible,  please consider passing on this information to your friends and by keeping Charlie in your thoughts.

Cat a who la? Cat a hula?

Contrary to popular opinion,  a Catahoula is not a Cat that does the hula!  The Catahoula Leopard Dog (and I'm one) is a really interesting breed of dog!  Catahoula is the part of Louisiana where we are said to originate.  You can learn more about the origin and characteristics of the Catahoula on these sites:

I'm a very Catahoula-y Catahoula!  I'm reserved with strangers, very sweet and devoted to my people, freakishly smart, have great problem solving skills and I'm very athletic.  I have webbed feet.  I don't like to get them wet and they're hard to clean so that kind of isn't the best!   Even if you've never heard of the Catahoula Leopard Dog, once you've seen us you'll know that we are really very attractive, wonderful dogs.
