Dogs Deserve Better

Hello Everyone,

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only three days away! This year, we will be having dinner at our newly wedded niece’s new home, and we won’t be doing any of the heavy lifting, only cranberry sauce and dinner rolls.

Our local news recently did a feature story on an organization I had not known about, Dogs Deserve Better. To quote from their website: “DOGS DESERVE BETTER is a nonprofit organization dedicated to freeing the chained dog, and bringing our ‘best friend’ into the home and family.” I thought maybe it was just a local San Antonio group, but there are reps all over the country.

The founder, Tamira Ci Thayne, started the organization in 2002, and was convicted on a theft charge in 2007 for rescuing a neighborhood dog from an abusive situation.

Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving holiday, and give your dogs a big hug for me.

Jean
