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.

    If not for the kind hearted rescuers being at the right place at the right time! And you thought my “No Man’s Land” poem was sad! Jean-Jacques

  3. Yes, this is a wonderful rescue video. You can subscribe to E. Hagar’s videos which I get via Flickr. The man is an angel and so is his wife. Below is a link to click on to see Fiona’s trasformation and corrective eye surgery. She can now see. She is a dog angel.

    Regards, yvonne

  4. Dear Paulette, I hope that I did not just duplicate what you had reblogged. If so please erase the video part of my comment. I have one of his rescues on my blog which I got from You Tube. You can get many rescue videos from You Tube and they will all grab at the strings of your heart. Regards, yvonne

    • The follow-up video you sent is perfect. Delighted you included it as it added to the reblog and gave a wonderful follow-up on sweet Fiona. Greatly appreciated!

      • Great. You might want to siubscribe to Flickr.Not hard to do.Don’t know that you have to put any pics up at all. He is on there and if you make him a contact then you will get notices each time he posts a video. They are all so good. He is an angel for sure. Wish I knew him.He has a book so I need to see about getting it. I don’t know if it is available from any of the on-line book dealers or not. I must see about that. 🙂

      • Thank you so much! Will check it out. I’ve seen some of his videos before and agree with all you say. A wonderful angel.

  5. Bless everyone who helps the animals that are forgotten and unloved

    Thanks to the people who helps here

  8. I’m so happy she was saved. I had to shed a tear..well, tears… it’s so affecting, but we’re so happy that there are still angels among us on this planet, too. Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂

    • I know… the beginning of watching it left a huge lump in my throat. It was so hard to watch but thankfully she was rescued. Made me cry that she wagged, that was her first response upon waking from surgery and seeing. What a story.

      Happy pawsome weekend to you! 🙂

    It made my heart cry to see what a terrible state Fiona was in when she was rescued, such a timid little thing; thank God for the angels who rescued her and gave her a new life, and for the surgeon who restored the sight in one of her eyes. What a transformation for Fiona – she can now see and is such a happy little dog, thanks to the special love and care from the angels who made it happen.

  10. I’ve been going through a lot of Kleenex since I met you, Paulette, but that’s OK. 🙂

    Paulette, what a beautiful story. I watched this at 630am on a Sunday morning, and I started my day with tears of joy. Thank you — Bill

  12. I believe that the Universe is a kind and generous place. That gentle soul was meant to find another equally gentle soul. They each had something to give the other…

  13. WordsFallFromMyEyes says:

    Paulette, My God, this changed my day. To see how she was in the beginning, & urinating out of fear – to see her accept the petting, the shaving, the shower, her trust, knowing she was in good hands – the operation, the sight. My GOD this video is beautiful. God bless and bless and bless and bless people who do such work upon this earth.

    She’s such a sweetie! She must have been so frightened.

    While watching this vid, I was howling. Literally. Dogs are so much different from cats, so accepting of their lot, somehow easier to flatten, but so much more resilient. You can beat them, starve them, neglect them, but give them a while with decent folks and they become different beings.
    Well done to these people. They deserve their place in heaven…
