I stumbeled into owning an Amstaff. Her name is Lucy and she is my best friend, always quick to cuddle. She's goofy and clumbsy, and simply wonderful. I can understand the general fear that people harbour towards these dogs. They are strong, and intimidating, no question. But behind that gruff exterior is a big heart that is couragous, loyal, and smart. The thought of losing my Lucy, breaks my heart and I can't imagine having to give her over to someone.
Here is why Im talking about this. The SPCA in Halifax/Dartmouth is working with one of the rescue groups in Ontario to save some of these dogs. They are in need of responsilble people to adopt these dogs. They are also looking for Foster Homes, it's a way that you can help without making the long term commitment of adopting a dog. Remember, these dogs have gone through the behaviour assesment in Ontario and at the SPCA, they have been locked in a Kennel until being transferd to the SPCA. There is a female Amstaff at the SPCA now, her name is Tyra and she has a face sweet enough to break your heart when you think about the horrible treatment she has recieved. Please, if you are concidering getting a dog, think about one of the dogs from Ontario. Go and meet one of the dogs, there is no harm in that. If there are restriction on any animal (such as no cats, or no other dogs in the household) from the SPCA you will be informed before you even fill out an adoption application, and that applies to all of the pets at the SPCA.
To contact the SPCA you can call 468-7877, their website is www.metro.spcans.ca
There is information there about volunteering, fostering, adoption, and you can also make a donation as the SPCA is not Government funded.
This is my Lucy.....
And this is Tyra who is available for adoption at the SPCA

How could I resist using this photo today?! Im a fan of ancient history, and Egypt, well that's pretty old....I love this shot!
I was once able to see Egyptian artifiacts in a museun and it was amazing! They were tiny people judging by the belts and shoes that were on display. They also had plenty pf examples of the work the artisans did....amazing stuff really. ojancano chema has plenty of other pics of egypt, if you interested just click away!

Saturday night Patrick Roy was there with the Ramparts, that was fun. Sunday Afternoon there were tonns of animals, and Im not just talkin' Moose fans!
There were Owls, a snake, a skunk, and other critters. And there were two dogs there, Rocky and Cody. The dogs along with the owners are part of an organization called Therapeutic Paws Of Canada. They go into long term care facilities and hang out with the people living there. They also go to Public libraries all over the HRM and help kids read. Confused? Don't be, kids who are having trouble reading, read books to the dogs, they are a non-judgemental third party, and the kids improve their reading skills on a regular basis. To find out more about the organization please check their website, www.tpoc.ca
Maybe you and your furry buddy can get involved!
Meet Rocky and Cody, two of the sweetest dogs I've ever met!
