    Looks like a Full House for Survivors Mom and Honigschmidt. I must admit that I only have enough energy to keep up with one!!! :laugh:

    Survivors Mom did you fly them all (one at a time) to Texas in the plane?

    They do tire me out some days for sure! :)

    No, Karma is my only world traveler. She was on death row in a shelter in NC when I saw a rescue group's posting for her. I was able to talk the shelter into holding her while the rescue group and I worked to get her to Texas. Pilots 'n Paws answered my prayers and stepped in. It took 4 car trips and 3 private plane rides for her to make it home with me... an amazing story for an amazing girl! She was very dog aggressive when she came to me but we all (the dogs, Karma and myself) worked very hard and now she's a vital member of the family and loves all of her brothers and sisters.

    I rescued two of the others from area shelters, took one that needed a home due to a family death, and two I took out of an abusive home. And the kitty came to live with us when his elderly mom had to move in with family and he had no place to go.

    Are you still into rescue---I applaud you if you are!!!

    I actually started a thread here in the Pet's forum for rescues and you are more than welcome to use it. Or start another to fit your needs. If it saved one animal than it's worth the effort!!!!!!!!!!

    See there? I didn't even know there was a Pet's forum! That'll probably be my new home now. :)

    I've been rescuing for years. When I moved to a small town several years ago it became more just rescuing my personal dogs due to lack of people willing to foster and/or adopt. i'm a major foster failure myself so I had to stop myself, only due to room and finances. BUT... I recently purchased a small bit of land and future plans are to build a small rescue primarily for pit bull type dogs, the world's most misunderstood breed. It'll be a few years down the road but that's what I want to do. The Vicktory Dogs are SO my heroes and they've all inspired me to do more for the breed.


    eta: I just realized this is in the Pet's forum... duh! I followed someone elses link to get here and never even noticed!

    Yep you are in the Pet's Forum. :laugh:

    I got friends (married couple) who does do that. It was a pain getting set up but mainly because of State regulations. They just do dogs and it is a lot of work but they are so happy when they home them!

    I can't say I'm any better even if we make Buddie wait until we get done and then let her have some on the plate.

    I do keep fried up hamburger or broiled chicken around so if we have something she shouldn't have, I get that out for her.

    I'm so well trained. :facepalm: :laugh:

    As long as it doesn't bite, you could use the "1 finger touch" so she can feel it - She can only touch it with 1 finger. I use to do that with by grandbabies when they wanted to touch stuff. Not too much damage they can do with 1 finger.
