What an honor !!!

I am feeling very honored today . I and my bird are featured
along with a few other folks . I talk about how I went to a breeder
when I made a decision that would change my life in a way I did not see coming . I saw a sad little quaker baby in a cage with a broken wing . The breeder told me she was going to euthanize all of them including arnolds siblings .I broke down right there and called my cousin and asked her to come meet me it turned out to be a rescue mission . we gave the breeder twenty five dollars for all the babies including arnold she said they were too deformed to sell . right then we scooped all those babies up . I always tell ppl that was the best 25.00 I ever spent in my life .
For those of you who dont know I do rescue work and also went to new orleans after katrina hit to see what we could do for those poor dogs and cats and pets that got left behind . I crawled through muddy underpennings under houses and I was glad to do it cause I want to be sure that I leave something behind when I leave this earth . The babies that you cant save are the ones that stick out the most in your mind or the ones that die on you on the way to the rescue station .
I will never forget them . I will also never forget driving from new orleans to mobile alabama without a shower and the hotel owner who let me pile ten dogs in the hotel room with me and she brought food , dog food and extra towels to wash the dogs with as well . I dont think I have ever been that dirty in my life before . Oh well Im very honored to have been a part of this book and a part of helping after Katrina . Be carefull out there among them english and stay well everyone .


  1. Congratulations! A deserved honor for sure! We had some animals come here from New Orleans and they found homes so quickly, people were practically fighting to adopt them! You feel so helpless when something like that happens. Thank God for people like you who get off their butts and do something about it!

  2. YEAH !!!! Congratulations on job well done ! How did all the birds make out after all?

    I am proud of you !

  3. Congrats! What a wonderful thing you did. So awesome. ;-)
