Update from Connie

Thinking maybe I better check in as it has been awhile. Sorry for the long absence. We are still here and still rescuing German Shepherd Dogs of course. We are not putting many of our dogs on Petfinder as we seem to get them placed before I can get them put on the site. Actually I am a little unhappy with Petfinder, since they sold out, because for one thing they took off the feature that allowed people to click straight to our website adoption application. Instead they put a totally inadequate little form of their own on there. Now we have to give directions how to go to our website to put in an application and often people don’t see it as it is in the description of the dog. 

I had planned to get our website updated and we did get some donations last time I made a request here but we didn’t receive enough so I still have them waiting till we have the funds to do it. 

Hopefully this will remind our wonderful friends and supporters that we are still in need. I haven’t talked to Go Daddy and I hope that the cost hasn’t gone up. I just tried to call but it said I would have a 28 minute wait so I think I will try tomorrow. We have pretty much reached the point that we have to do this to be able to continue rescuing and it will take a real professional to do it. Once it is done we should be able to make changes and update it ourselves.  I have 3 pages of changes and updates to be made. There are 3 submission forms on there , adoption application, owner surrender form and foster application that can be filled out online and submitted to us . There is also a paypal link , and the forms also connect to Petfinder. This just isn’t an easy website web builder thing LOL. Anyone that wants to help can just click on the donation button on this blog. If it gives you a friends and family option use that one and paypal won’t take a percentage.

Chaddo , Excalibur and I are all doing pretty good.  Marsha Boggs started an IPO club in Salida and after many years of not being close enough to participate in a club, I joined hoping that among other things it might help me get my health back. Of course to do this I needed a pretty high powered dog so Mike bought me a Czech import dog ( he paid for him, I ordered him LOL) and I started training again. I think it is working because I am feeling better. I have included a picture of him here. He is only 6 months old now.  His name is Rezso Anrebri. I also included a few photos of some of our favorite rescues from 2016.

I am looking forward to spring and summer. Hope all of you are staying well and happy.
