Miracles do happen!

A friend just e-mailed this to me. For anyone who’s ever helped a dog

(or cat, or animal) this one’s for you. My way of saying THANK YOU SO MUCH!


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.

    Ah, Paulette – a wonderful reminder that we walk this earth with giants by our side.

    β€œDogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.” Milan Kundera

  22. I’m smiling and crying at the same time. My heart is so full, it hurts. I think every pal I every rescued who is now in pup Heaven is in there trying to get out and give me a kiss.

    • I can feel them at that pearly gate right now, wagging where is Lorna, our biped mommy, drooling, slobbering, throwing you big heavenly kisses as we speak. And, I know what you mean about this video, amazing… the song and running sent me over the teary-eyed edge. xoxo
