Nala the hero dog responsible for the rescue of another canine freezing to death, has still not been adopted. I don't understand it. She is a pit bull mix, is not what most would call pretty, and is black. She does well with other male dogs but is not good with other females. Many have come to see about adopting her, but so far have all gone away without her. Alan Borland, who paid attention to her tugs that icy day to find Chadwick,walks dogs at the shelter every day. He told me that she is wonderful, and he would know. He is also baffled, but is confident that when the person comes who is worthy of Nala, she will find her "forever" home.
News from Alaska: Well, it was news to me, but probably not to many folks who live on the Kenai Peninsula. I had heard about kids reading to trained dogs to help the kids read better, and I think such programs great; but I had not heard of reading to rescued dogs for their benefit. Not until a good friend on the Kenai told me what was happening there:
"They can sit in by the kennel and read to the dogs and it is for the dog's benefit (of course it's good for kids too). It's helpful in socializing them and calming them as well. (depending on the story of course) The program is just starting in Kenai at the shelter. Christie worked with a young dog today for the first time when we were there and I think she's a bit of a dog whisperer."I'm eager to know more. What can you tell me?
That's the news on the Janus Canine Front. Have a great day! Woof and wag your tails at your friends!
