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 just took a long walk with Tukker deer through the woods. He stopped to sniff, lick, and eat along the way. Occasionally, he became alert, then went back to foraging. Tukker reminds me to gently work my way through these strange days, and to look and linger in order to see the blessings that truly are all around us. Happy anniversary to the two of you! Enjoy the day and the pizza!!

    Congratulations and Happy Anniversary!

    CONGRATULATIONS! Very impressive, on the one hand, and on the other, how could it be otherwise, for a kind sweet caring and loving lady like Paulette, not having attracted her loving most kind Terry as she described and no doubt vice versa for that matter. Ergo all is as it should and meant to be. Obviously, 35 years suggests the gods, or fate, or the higher power, did get it right,…as all we said humans and or four legged creatures who Paulette and Terry so care for, can attest. As well we who have come to know these two wonderful people, one way or another, can see the honest love in their eyes, with the smiles that so confirm. Congratulations again dear friends and may all the years that follow be of happiness and choice! Jean-Jacques & Marianne


  14. Clanmother says:

    What a wonderful and joyful post, Paulette. Congratulations!!! And all the very best to your both. Don & I have been married for 42 years – every day is a new adventure together. Our latest project together is poetry recitation of poems that have long been forgotten and await discovery in the world “public domain.” Sending this video as our gift. We are all on a quest, a journey.

  15. Congratulations, you’re such a lovely couple! Here’s to many more!!!🥂

    Happy anniversary! Stay safe and take care in these troubled times.

    I’m hoping that once all this is over people will have more appreciation for the things that really matter and worry less about all the superficial stuff.

    • Clowie! What a wonderful surprise to have you stop by. We certainly share your hope. After all that’s said and done it is this that matters, loving each other. Or relationships with people, animals, and nature. I hope you’re well and managing to get out with your humans. Please all hug yourselves from us. And feel free to stay in touch even if by email. ❤️🐾

  17. Pizza…did I hear pizza? *Licks paws* Clean Pawkisses for a Happy Anniversary, dearest Paulette and mr. Terry. What a wonderful archievement and what a beautiful couple you are💗Stay Safe, Healthy and Yourselfie🐾😽💞

  18. Wishing you and Terry a very happy anniversary!

  19. Congratulations you two. So lovely to see your smiling faces. We’re recently back from Borneo, Malaysia and still in quarantine. But in Borneo we got to see orangutangs! So here’s my gift – a photo of a mother and baby at the Sepilok Orangutang Rehabilitation Centre in Sabah, Malaysia.
    Much love

  20. A second try at the link:

  21. Nope. Still didn’t work 😦 will try something else.

    • I copied and posted it into my browser and found it. Also requested to connect with you on facebook. Incredible photo of the baby ridding on its mother’s stomach as she’s swinging them on a branch. Amazing! What a beautiful gift. You are one very inspirational, beautiful couple. I hope that the quarantine is just routine precaution and that you’re both okay. Thank you so much! Much love, ❤

      • Oh I’m so glad you found it. Seeing the orangutangs was so magical. I’ll do a post about it eventually. We are both well thanks with no signs of the disease. And yes, the quarantine is a routine precaution for people coming into Canada from overseas. It’s been requested for a while now, but from midnight becomes mandatory.

      • Glad you’re okay. I can only imagine how incredible it was to see the orangutang mother and baby. If I had the health to do it, safari and all things animals around the world is on my bucket list. You see, your gift of that photo was indeed my perfect present. For now, I can live vicariously through my wonderful friends, like you two. ❤

    Happy Anniversary!!! You look so good…and happy together!!
    Hope you are handling this pandemic and subsequent lock down well…I worry about your animals….
    Stay well…be safe ❤

    • Hi and thank you, Lorrie. We’re holding up okay. Doing our best to keep busy. We have two dogs here that are happy as can be and as for dogs in shelters it seems that people are adopting with the stay at home rules. In fact, one really highly populated shelter in Riverside, Ca. completely emptied out. I also read another one in Florida did as well. I just hope that this isn’t like giving puppies for Christmas where people get tired of them when their “normal” life resumes and into the shelter they land. For now, the rescue activity continues and I’m grateful that I work along site a huge group of people dedicated to continuing to help the dogs. It’s a sad time, a hard time for so many, and it’s difficult to chose where to give but some remain extremely passionate towards helping dogs. Doggie angels. I hope you’re well and stay safe. ❤

      • lorriebowden says:

        Hi Paulette! What a great time to bring a new doggie home! I did hear about the shelter here in Florida…everyone was so happy!! I, too, hope that the adoptions are long standing and that the dogs have found good homes! My little guy looks at me sometimes like he is thinking, “Don’t you have somewhere to go?” 😃
        These are strange times, no doubt. The best we can do is be flexible and willing to change. Those who fight change will not adapt. I work hard every day to keep my energy in love…not fear…though we both know there is much we can have fear about.
        Stay well…live well! 💜
