A Long Day’s Journey Up the Mountain of Courage

I’ve been gone from the blogging world for what feels like a very long time.

And

Now, it’s time to return…

With a mission.

For the past 8 months I have been working —  28 to 35 volunteer hours 7 days a week — to care for and socialize dogs seized from an out of control and badly neglected breeding situation.

On December 11 and 30, 2008, approximately 200+ dogs, 3 cats,  10 cockatiels,  a bunch of chickens and one loud rooster were seized by Yellowstone County (Billings, MT) and taken to the fairgrounds where the majority of them would be housed in horse barns for the next 8 – 9 months.

I began volunteering with the dogs the first week of January 2009.

I invite you to follow my journey with Joy, Love, Eddie, Happy, Trooper, Sadie, Suri, and Tippy — the 8 dogs I have worked with directly these past 8 months.

Our journey is one of great, great learning filled with emotional highs and lows.

AND

Is now in a place that will shock you.

Please join our journey as we travel up the mountain of courage…

First, meet the dogs:
