148 happy wagging tails in 2015

The final count for 2015 for dogs rescued from kill shelters with the help of profits from my books is 148. Below are the last of the group for this year. Here they are to give everyone a wagging wish for a very Happy New Year. Thank you again and again to all who have helped with this effort in any way.

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 am certain that dogs have evolved into a higher state – they have been given the great gift of all: a tail to wag with happiness. Thank you dear friend for all the wags and the cheers, and the laughter and hope that you have given to these marvelous creatures. They are so beautiful…

  6. Ah yes the evolution of a dog, I think you’re on to something my dear friend, Rebecca. And thank you back, once again, for all you’ve given to me/my heart and the world. May peace, joy, and health be yours this next year. ❤

  7. ANd multiply these happy faces by the faces they are now making happy! ❤

  9. 148 and that’s a whole lot of wagon/ wagging for you to have made possible. I love those old dogs. I’m so glad they were adopted. I just don’t understand how people can give up their old pet to the shelter. It boggles my mind.

  10. Thank you for sharing these stories of kindness, Paulette. It’s a wonderful way to end the old year and begin anew. 🙂

  11. The people who take these old dogs are special…they know the heartache they will feel but still give these old dears love and comfort in their declining years.

    Do you know of the Twilight rescue home in France? They take the oldies and treat them like kings.

  12. Freedom for all of them, we like that! Bringing you Extra fresh Pawkisses for a Happy and Healthy New Year 🙂 ❤

  13. Such a happy end of year post, Paulette. Happy New Year to you and all those sweet animals. 🙂

  16. Wishing you a very happy new year Pauline….here’s to more dogs finding their forever families in 2016!

    Just watching their freedom pictures brought tears to my eyes.
    Poor souls, those who are still with the sword over their heads. You know, Paulette, when it’s about cats and dogs I am soft at heart. God bless your generous soul!

    Just love it!! Your dedication is a beautiful thing! ❤ Blessings for a new year!

  19. Clowie says:

    That’s a wonderful achievement. Here’s to many more wagging tales in 2016!

  20. Misaki says:

    Happy new year xx

  21. A woof and a Happy New Year!

  22. Always fun to visit your pups. Cheers !

  23. That’s really lovely. I’m very fond of old dogs, in particular, and always happy when someone adopts them. I’d like to do more adopting myself, when I buy a property – not sure if my slightly dog-unfriendly partner will let me though..we’ll see.

    • So nice to see you here, thank you. I just love dogs and certainly hope it works out for you in the future, but if it’s not in the cards for you, then feel free to stop by here anytime. All the dogs that are on my site just love visitors. You’re always welcome. Happy New Year to you. ❤

  25. That had me close to blubbing – tell no one!!!! Damn you woman!
    Great work though, wonderful.
