Sirius of the Week

Miles is pure beagle from head to stomach to tail, and has lived with his 'hoomin' since he was two months old. Miles has enjoyed moving from Florida to Vermont and back again. While in Vermont he had some severe behavior/aggression problems, but with good advice from the nice folks in Rochester NY and love and patience from his hoomin he managed to regain control and has been a happy, active and very affectionate alpha to his pack. He now lovingly rules his pack of five, known as The Baskerbeagles of Howling Acres.

Elizabeth Ellis is a painter who is painting an 8x10 inch watercolor of an adoptable animal in a shelter each week in 2015. At the beginning of 2016, she will have an exhibition of the 52 paintings at the Dreaming Tree Gallery in Grove City, Ohio. After the exhibition, she will mail the original paintings to the shelter where the animal is still living, or hopefully, to the family that has adopted the animal.

She is calling it the "Year of 52 Rescues" and will be blogging and tweeting the whole process. She started near where she lives, in Ohio, but will include shelters from other parts of the United States. You can see her work at Elizabeth Ellis Art and Elizabeth Paints on Facebook.

Beware of Internet Puppy Scams: Unfortunately, unscrupulous people have been sending emails offering to sell pedigree puppies (bulldogs, pugs, and others). Similar phony websites are also on the web. These emails and websites are fake. They are designed to cheat you out of your money either by never sending you the puppy or by sending you a different dog from what you paid for. Your best bet: If you want a purebred, contact a local breed-specific rescue group. Or if you just want a new best friend, save a life from your local animal pound.
