Our Hearts are Breaking for Rosie the Newf

Have you heard about Rosie the Newfoundland Dog who was shot four times by police in Washington? Police officers, who were obviously completely lacking in sound judgment, first tazered Rosie, then cornered her after she ran into a fenced in yard and killed her. They said she bared her teeth...well who wouldn't after being chased down by humans who tazered you. The owner of the yard had closed the fence so the officers could have simply waited for animal control to show up. Poor Rosie was terrified I'm sure...this just makes me sick.

Rosie's owner said that Rosie was her soulmate. I can completely relate to that since I feel the same way about Katie and Louie. My heart goes out to Rosie's family.

Please sign the petition in the link on the right side of our blog. Rosie's death could at least teach a valuable lesson to people that desperately need one if we can make our voices be heard.

I never take Katie and Louie for granted and feel extreme gratitude for them every day. After hearing about this tragedy I just want to hug them and never let go.

Katie wrote an article for "Arkansas Hospice" magazine

Our Newfoundlands Katie and Louie are featured in the November 2010 issue of "Arkansas Hospice" magazine. I scanned this page from the magazine. Newfoundlands are known for their intelligence, and Katie is no exception. I think her writing skills are getting better all the time ;-)
