Freedom Train and Iams Recall

This is a video of the Freedom Train Animal Transport. There are some active transport drivers among pet bloggers, such as Khyra's and River's moms and others we can't remember at the moment. This is another group that saves a lot of dogs from certain death and transports them to a new life.

Their embed doesn't work, so visit Storyteller. Rhonda Sims. On a Mission For Dogs to watch the video.

We want to thank Gotchi for the Versatile Blogger award. We're posting it before we forget but we'll have to pass it on later.

Question: Any of you know a fun graphics program for making fun pictures instead of just the usual?

Iams is having a voluntary recall on certain cans of cat food due to a thiamine vitamin (B1) deficiency.  You can read the details here.

Pepper of Paws Volunteer (Animal Shelter Volunteer Life) could use your vote for best whiskers in a photo contest. Just sign in if you're already a Petfinder member or sign up if you're not.  Name, date of birth, password and email address are all that are needed to sign up to vote once -- or preferably to vote daily until June 21.  Details and voting link can be found on Pepper's post.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.

  10. I can't thank those active transport drivers/bloggers enough.
    Jn, thanks a bunch for supporting my cybersisters Autumn&Jasmine. Your kindness means a lot to me.

  11. So much to cover - hmm, first that is cool to talk about the transports. We love that so many good people out there make them happen!

    Congrats on the award - you guys totally deserve it!

    We posted at our site about the recall too - we had to check our cans out to be sure too!

    We have a link for Pepper at our site - seriously who can resist that face!

    And pictures - well, if you are looking for image manipulation type stuff there is a great listing at Otherwise I am not sure what you are looking for - but that list covers a lot of stuff!

  12. Congratulations on your award! On the picture program, do you use Windows or a Mac? I love Pixelmator on the Mac. I used to use the GIMP (freeware) on Windows and Linux. Some other free options on Windows would be PhotoScape or Paint.NET I haven't used either one but I've heard good things about them.

  13. Congrats on your award!!! ;-D


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
