HAIR OF THE DOG: The Ritz Carlton, 921 Canal St., New Orleans, LA, is accepting donations of pet and human hair and panty hose to make booms to clean-up the oil spill. Donations will be accepted at the front door on Canal St. from 8AM-8PM daily. Groom your dog for summer and put all that hair to good use. Place hair and/or panty hose in separate bags for donation. No donation is too small or too large.

Operation Tennessee Rescue - Can you donate?

North Shore Animal League America is responding to an emergency situation with one of our partner shelters in Tennessee.

Recent heavy rains have caused extensive flooding resulting in many displaced families. Sadly, many of these people have no choice but to bring their beloved pets to Metro Animal Control in Nashville for safe-keeping until they are able to return back to their homes. Shelter Director, Judy Ladebauche, has requested our assistance.

To aid in this crisis, the Animal League is deploying two emergency responders with our mobile unit on Friday, May 6, 2010. They will assess the damage in the area and fill the rescue unit with as many shelter animals as possible. This will open up space for the displaced animals that continue to come to the Tennessee shelter.


Morning Mommy!

One sick... one crazy bananas

No need to pray for me however, pray for whomever walks me!

Poor darling... may have gotten stung by a something!
Pray for me...

Drop um, drop um, drop um...

Not sure why this makes me laugh...

We are eating!

Ordinance 27953 - the Intact Dog Permit passed City Council unanimously today

From LASPCA web site...


In order to combat the growing pet overpopulation problem in New Orleans we have consulted on an ordinance that would impose an intact dog license on anyone who's dog is not spayed/neutered. Please review the ordinance and see below for the reasons we support it.

1. Statistics show that intact male dogs are 2.6 times more likely to bite than their unneutered counter parts. Every dog that has been involved in a major attack in New Orleans was intact when it occurred. With the aggressive dog issue in New Orleans coming to a pinnacle this month, we feel that this ordinance can bring us one step closer to a bite-free community.

2. The pet overpopulation of the New Orleans area continues to climb. We euthanized over 400 healthy and adoptable animals last year alone because we did not have the space available to find homes for them. By giving us a legal reproach to the many repeat offenders we have coming in the shelter on roaming at large charges we can close the loop hole that has been allowing these animals to continue to reproduce on the streets.

3. The LA/SPCA has a long and storied history with the city and the Animal Control contract. This ordinance along with the Rabies Tag fee re-classification will enable the LA/SPCA to provide revenue streams into the often lacking Animal Control contract. We are always proactively looking for creative ways to fund this essential service.

I am a very happy girl!

You can't tell by looking, but I am!

Hi Mommy!

I love you!

Great info from This Old House

Look what I wake up to this AM!

BUSTED THIS AM! Isabelle (looking down) and Henri
The mess (formally a very comfortable slipper) on the bedroom floor
In OPP (yes, we call it Orleans Parish Prison*)

Note that Isabelle is still looking down... I bet she started it!

*It is also called Angola and Shawshank. The name is determined based on the time they need to serve. OPP only lasted 15 minutes.

Happy Birthday to US!

Isabelle & Henri are 1 today!

The first 2 months almost killed me. Thank goodness I had great help!

Yes, I had a Nanny... okay - I admit it.

Yes, 2 is so much more difficult than 1. But now, I can't imagine having just 1!

Henri - Is a very loving 1 year old. He loves to cuddles and follows me like a baby duck. He will eat anything. He loves to walk around with a sock in his mouth but will "put it back" in the laundry basket if you tell him to. He is a very calm little boy. I love when he sits in my lap.

Isabelle - IS A HOT MESS! Nothing calm about this one. She is into everything... opens the back door, jumps the baby gate and will only follow me when I make her. She is a very picky eater... that is so strange to me! She is the boss of her brother... I love when she lays on my lap and love that she wakes me up in the morning by putting her head on my chest and tucking her nose under my chin.

They have brought me great joy! Happy Birthday babies...
