HSUS - Do Not Support Them

Feel free to share this information with all of your blogging friends. You can bet I am and I will also post it on FB. We have to stop these money hungry thieves. That is exactly what they are, thieves. They are taking our money making us think they are giving to local entities and then they keep it for themselves.


A Not-so-Glowing Report for HSUS
By Marlys Miller Thursday, May 21, 2009
The Human Society of the United States likes it when the public ties the group to local Humane Society animal shelters. The implication is if you give money to HSUS, some of that money trickles down to local Humane Societies too, and everyone feel good about helping homeless and abused cats and dogs.Well, HSUS is not that kind-hearted. The entity's funding efforts go into HSUS coffers and that's pretty much it; and among the organization's top self-proclaimed priorities is to focus on, some might say end, animal agriculture.Last week, Channel 2 Action News in Atlanta shone the media spotlight on the HSUS — and the animal rights' group didn’t fare so well when they didn’t control the message or the camera’s direction.Atlanta reporter, Amanda Rosseter, traced for viewers where the organization’s vast donations go, explaining that little of the millions of dollars given to HSUS each year end up at local animal shelters. (The HSUS 2007 annual report indicates $120 million in revenue.)Yet, HSUS is adept at generating media attention for animal rescues. For example, this week a animal "shelter" in southern Wisconsin, which contracted with a local humane society to care for stray cats, dogs and other animals was raided for neglect and abuse. Volunteers helping with the horrendous scene included folks wearing HSUS logos, implying HSUS funding support as well.The Channel 2 Action News Story sources told the reporter that HSUS is very successful at using misleading tactics to raise funds. Meanwhile, that same annual report shows $112 million in expenses — money Rosseter’s sources say is spent on lobbyists for animal-rights bills, salaries and benefits.Source: WSBTV Channel 2 Action News

Sorry that I have not been posting updates with photos but things are pretty hectic. I am sure you can all understand that having 3 puppies is almost like having real babies in the work that is involved. Anyway, excuses, excuses, I know. Here are some more current photos of the babies. They are adorable and growig so fast. I hope you enjoy.

We got Puppies

3 to be exact. 2 girls and 1 boy were born on May 4th around 2pm (EST). They all were very respectable in thw weight department. Boy was 8oz, lighter Girl was 7.5 and the darker Girl was 7oz. In the two days they have been alive they have gained 1 or more oz each. The boy is now 9 1/4 and has gained the most.

Here are some random pictures. I hope to get some better ones as they grow. It is pretty difficult at this stage.

Here they are just minutes old.

Here just a few minutes later.

Here they are after their first good meal at home doing what they do best, sleeping.

This is boy. We do not have any names picked out. Not that we will be keeping them all or anyting like that. I do like to be able to call them something besides boy, girl, girl, etc.

This is darker girl. She will be more fawn in color and the other 2 will be a really light cream color.

And this is light girl.


And this one is just two cute not to share. Momma and dark girl sleeping cheek to cheek.

I just realized that it has been almost a month since I last posted. I had a good time in Vegas. Mostly since then I have been working to catch up and get ahead so I would be ready when the puppies arrived. Since their arrival I have not gotten much sleep. But last night was better. Binde is a really good and attentive mommy.
Back to work. Will try to get more pictures and information out soon.
