5. ONGOING – On February 21st, 2013, I received a most delightful and touching email from a woman named Allie MacAlister that is so very active in helping others

She is extremely talented and more lovely than any words can ever be put down on paper and she has wonderfully surprised me with the very stunning and unique artful creation of an Irish Wolfhound, inspired by our Bunker Dude. She is calling it ‘Art For A Cause’.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

10% of sales of her products will come to BHRR!

*You can purchase t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, totes, greeting cards and SO much more! She will be adding products regularly.

The Wolfhound Cù Sìth

She is truly quite silly! Her face when I asked her if she could at least try and sit like a lady for only a moment for me to take a pic! 

BHRR’s Silly Tilly – from a hoarding situation – came to work with me today! 

What an amazing passenger and she was so fantastic in the run at work.

Her weight is just over 92 pounds. Therefore, she has now put on almost 10 pounds since she first came under our care. She is nice and lean and looks stunning! 

She had boosters and her heart plus lungs listened to, teeth checked and we looked closely for a spay incision plus her Vet palpated to see if she could feel anything. 

Per what was passed along to us, we had been told she was spayed and if she had been spayed it had to have been a paediatric spay as she is so immature in her vulva area. With her being very young – ~1, there should also be a scar.

We did pre-op bloodwork – thank you to the beautiful lovelies I work with in making it easy! – and we will book surgery to know for sure.

We have done u/s in the past plus exams and x-rays and hormones tests and over the many many many years we have been doing this, surgery is the only way to know without a doubt. 

AND in over 23 years of operating, we have never opened up a dog to then find out that they had already been spayed.

We have had two Danes – BHRR’s Cosette and BHRR’s Giselle alone that we had been told were spayed, we showed proper due diligence with progesterone testing, u/s, x-rays and exams to confirm spay – were informed that results indicated they were spayed AND both proved to not be spayed not all that long afterwards by going into heat. 

We had even had BHRR’s Giselle on the surgery table to be spayed, when the surgeon found a scar and felt definitively that it was a spay scar and we did hormone testing and were given the news she was spayed yet she went into heat the next month. 

AND later, we shall be posting a pic with another enormous thank you to a family that held an early birthday party for their handsome twins and donated the funds raised to BHRR. Those funds have enabled us to pay for all of BHRR’s Tilly’s Vet Bills up to today!  

That is extremely generous, humbling, caring and incredibly touching! 




The boss – Sean has spoken – BHRR’s Tilly shall be her name!

*Silly Tilly* 

Got her! 

She will need a name! Name guru’s! 

She is uber sweet and petite – just over 83 pounds (lean) – and such a beautiful temperament. Cannot wait to watch her blossom and see her monkey side really shine! ?

This lovely girl is now safe and out of the horrible hoarding conditions she once lived in.

Going to now make my way home and she will have 3+ acres to romp in shortly! 

Her home shall no longer be an outside pen filled with feces plus mud and a shelter way too small for her being exposed to the elements. 

She will have dogs beds, live inside being cherished, fed plus watered properly and have doggie friends to play with plus have so many loving hands to show her how important, worthy and cared about she is! 

Thank you Samantha, Karen and Jane for working with me again on another rescue. It is a true honour doing this life saving work with you! 

Happy Sunday to all of our friends, family plus supporters!

AND she is on her way!

The GD from the hoarding situation is on transport.

What a sweet big personality filled girl she appears to be! 

DRIVE safe wishes being sent out to everyone involved…..

AND goodnight wishes being sent from our home to all of our friends, family plus supporters!


Animal bylaw/control has picked up the ~1 year old female Great Dane from the hoarding situation.

Transport from their facilities to us is now being worked on.

She finally has proper shelter, food/water, love and will be going to the Vet prior to transport for initial assessment plus to begin proactive/preventive treatment.


The biggest of thank you’s much be extended from my heart to Karen & Samantha!  This girl is in excellent hands with them!

I hear that she is strong, precious and appears super friendly.

Cannot wait to meet you dear girl!

From our home to all of our friends, family and supporters, the best of good night wishes are being sent!


Here is a pic of her ‘shelter’. Way smaller than her. 

AND the colour of her loose diarrhea stool. 🙁

~ 1 year old female GD

Victim of a hoarding situation 

This is her current ‘home’. 

Tonight, will be her last night in these conditions.

Tomorrow, she shall be safe…….

Thank you to Karen & Samantha, her incredible lifesaving rescue angels and thank you to Jane of Just Paws Recue for working with me to help get her to BHRR.

This is what your generosity with donations of dog beds, cleaning supplies, bowls, collars, leashes and especially financial contributions for Vetting enable us to do.

To SAVE dogs like her.

She is going to need some serious TLC

I could not wish for a more fitting Mothers Day gift….to be able to help another in urgent need of BHRR.
