WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE ANOTHER CRAIGSLIST SAVE!  THIS BEAUTIFUL AUSTRAILIAN SHEPHERD WAS BEING SOLD FOR $25.00.  THEY SAID THE ONLY DRAWBACK IS THAT HE IS BLIND & DEAF AND DOES NOT LIKE OTHER DOGS.   IN THE SHORT TIME HE HAS BEEN WITH US WE CAN TELL YOU HE IS DEAF, HE DOES HAVE VISION IN HIS LEFT EYE AND HE LOVES THE OTHER DOGS!  KIRBY THE MINI AUSSIE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION SOON.

RIP COWBOY
 
 
OUR SANCTUARY FRIEND, OUR BELOVED COWBOY LOST HIS BATTLE WITH ILLNESS YESTERDAY, AUGUST 20TH.  OUR BIG, BLIND LAB WAS THE HEART OF THE SANCTUARY SINCE THE DAY HE ARRIVED 1 1/2 YEARS AGO.  HE NEVER COMPLAINED OR HAD A BAD DAY, HE LOVED HIS HYDROTHERAPY AND NEVER MISSED A MEAL!   MANY OF YOU LOVED THIS GENTLE GIANT AND WILL MISS HIM AS MUCH AS US, AND HIS FOUR LEGGED FRIENDS HERE AT THE RANCH.  WE WERE BLESSED TO HAVE BEEN GRACED WITH YOUR PRESENCE AND LOVE COWBOY!  UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.....
