About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    I’m just blown away – so many finding homes and love, and I don’t just mean the animals, because of your passion. What a great blessing you are.
    xoxox

    • I’m with you on being blown away but my part here is small compared to the good folk working at the shelter, bringing the dogs and cats out for adoption events, and so many others who help. I’m a tiny piece of the pie who loves to share the happy smiling wagging faces and am truly thrilled and feel blessed that I’m flowing them some money to help out. Occasionally we get directly involved with rescuing but we’re approaching that age that makes it prohibitive and so we do what we can. Big hugs. xoxo

    Another happy post PπŸ˜‰

  6. I hope that all the innocent in the world will find a home, kindness, loyalty, respect, food & water & care, and love forever.

    This is a wonderful video. Do you know Eldad Hagar?
    This is Gaia’s history, a brave mother, a great mother. This is a story that moves, but which gives hopeπŸ™‚

    Love you, sister.
    Eli
    P.S. your book has arrived!

    • Wiping the tears as I type. Thank you so much for posting this heart-wrenching heartwarming video. It’s people like this man who give me hope, not just about rescuing dogs but so many things. It’s the good hearts like this… This is a wonderful, beautiful, story and boy those puppies are so darn cute. My husband & I have been involved in manly rottweiler rescue for the last 28 years. We’ve been involved in scenarios like this, some day I’ll write about one of them with a severely abused group of rottie puppies (happy ending also), and I can’t tell you what it is to look in the face of a grateful dog (or any other animal, quadra or biped).

      I love that you shared this. Please feel free to come back any time with any more like this or alert me if you post any like this at your site.

      Love, Paulette
      ps. hope you enjoy the book. We sent another check to SPARC (Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center) yesterday from book sales last month. You helped a wagging tail.πŸ™‚

      • Paulette, sister,

        might there be something more pure, something more beautiful and kind of the look of an animal? I don’t believe.

        On my wall I put an image (have you seen it?)
        There are empty cages. Inside the cages there are lighted candles.
        A WordPress friend wrote me that that picture is very beautiful.
        I replied to her in this way (I hope I can correctly translate!):

        “Dear Sweets,

        I prefer to put in the cages lighted candles and I prefer to lock up the dreams never dreamed, the beautiful love affairs never lived, the beloved animals never born, the stones that don’t sleep, nor wake up into a dawn that make blinds the Heart…
        I prefer to lock up the cages what has not been and what is not and never will be.
        The suffering. Only this infamous I would like put in chains and lock up in the cages.
        I have always believed that it could be true and not just a “project” making free the others from suffering, even before making free ourselves…
        do something; a favor, offer the hand, the shoulder, a glass/a bowl of water…
        break the barbed wire which makes captives people worldwide … captives animals worldwide … breaking it using steel tongs, with the determination wishing that everything in which we believe-that, in the end we ourselves the mirror-is not just a dream, or an idea, but something that is real.”

        A warm affectionate hug.

        Your sister Eli, so far only in the distance, not in the Heart.

      • That is beautiful, Eli. The words and the heart behind them. Thank you so much for sharing here.

  10. How wonderfully encouraging, and heart-warming. So much love and hope in these pictures! Love it!

  11. Wagging Tails&Cheers!πŸ˜€

    Sweet dreams, sister❀

  12. Oh, SweetHeart! BSL is horrible! I have fought a lot for Lennox and the others were rescued. The night before Len execution I’ve never slept on, always on line to write, send and email, even to Pope! Nothing. Lennox was killed.
    I’ll remember his sweet gaze forever, and even now thinking about it, I can not stop crying.

    I agree with you, sister, but the fact is that humans ruin the good character of the dogs, not the other way!

    • Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry to read about Lennox and I’m with you 100% on that. I am NOT in favor of the aspect of BSL that “bans” breeds. But there’s another component to the law, “restrictions” that can call for spay and neuter of certain breeds, etc. have a leash of a certain length, have certain liability insurance, etc. That’s what I was referring to. My humble apologies for the misunderstood. And, we’re on the same page about people and dogs, for sure.
