Whatever floats your boat...
As an update to the blog and video I posted on March 3 ("You Can't Put a Good Dog Down"), I want to share some good news about Gemma, the German shepherd I’ve been working to find a home for.
A dog trainer in Marin County (just north of San Francisco) saw the video of Gemma and has volunteered to provide her with a foster home until she finds a permanent home. The trainer has several acres of property and
four large dogs. She feels confident that she can socialize Gemma to other dogs
and Gemma will receive some great training as well. The cherry on top is that

become a foster mother to a tiny dog named Wheaties, who was untrained an
un-house broken when he came to me, but who will soon be the light of someone’s

A great big shout-out and thank you to BlancheNoE, Ruth, Tahllulah, Pyper, Jim, and soho2014. And most especially to Syd and to Chig who inspired me in indirect ways to take on this work. Your comments of support
were truly kind and gave me encouragement that all the work on Gemma’s behalf
would pay off.
It’s time for me to rebalance my priorities so that I have some time for you people again.
Even Wheaties says so. Gotta go now. The bell is ringing.
