But first, let me ask you, How would a best dog mom be?

Mario the happy stray that is working by escorting at the gas station along the highway and escorting the coffee lady back home after work. He is still happy and still working full time. Olivia and I, we stop for a cup of coffee once a week and we we bring a bag of dog food and some cans of yummy wet dog food. He is our super hero!

Grace! When I visited the shelter with 500 dogs and was on my way to leave, this beauty and an very old Lea who had been sterilized and were being brought out to freedom in a “not so nice area” I burst into tears because Lea is so old and medically not doing so well; and Grace just aborted. My concern was would they survive? So Lea is now in a foster home, Rita has been taking good care of her. And a wonderful lady, Sarah, contacted me telling me all about Grace’s breed. She wanted to adopt Grace.

Sarah had rescued another dog Leroy that had been chained and was a walking skeleton, she needed a home for him before Grace could come home to her and her husband, and their first rescue dog “Diesel”.

Well, Leroy was brought to a family that wanted a dog, just like Leroy so Sarah joined me to the shelter where Grace was waiting.

Look at this beautiful couple! Sarah so fell in love with Grace that she couldn’t leave her. Sarah had at first paid/sponsored Grace for a month in the shelter since she was not sure if Leroy would stay in the new family, but after 20 minutes Sarah said, “What the heck!” And home Grace went with Sarah!

Grace is doing wonderfully in her new home and I am so very happy….That’s Amore!



Last Sunday I went to visit one shelter with 500 dogs in it, well actually the shelter where Mozart is.

In the next blog entry I will tell you more about this shelter, but now I write only about this old lady. Me and some friends (Martina and Pio) were ready to leave when I saw this lady, and another big white dog walking next to us. I asked the volunteer, Alessandria where these two were going?

I could sense a kind of sadness in Alessandria’s voice when she told me that they had been brought in from the street to be sterilized but had to go back on the streets again.

My heart just broke, I started to cry.

I couldn’t stop crying, no matter how hard I tried. This old lady would not survive long on the streets. I was told she had cancer in her stomach, leischaminiosis and an old hip fracture on her back leg. And her age 10-12 years old, probably many puppies in her life too.

I couldn’t let it happen, I asked if I could have them both at the shelter until I found some kind of solution. Warm-hearted Alessandria and Sengiora (who is running the shelter) made it possible for them to stay at least for a little while.

I named her Lea.

When I came home I sent out a request for help, we only needed a garden for a month or two or three! (until some of the dogs I have gets their passport to Sweden right now 19 dogs, I want Lea to have some quiet time)

One person wrote back telling me that if Lea got along ok with her other dogs, she was welcome to stay there.

I picked Lea up last Monday and my heart was so happy and worried at the same time. But finally we could start the therapy, since Lea’s mind and soul was not ready to go over to the other side.

Wonderful Lea, so gentle! She let the dogs greet her and she drank together with Toby, and she lays outside in the green grass the whole day, and sleeps inside during night. I want her not to be worried to find food anymore, sun and food and quiet time until she tells me she is done on Mother Earth. Lea is so easy, polite and full of wisdom. I am so happy and pleased to have met this lady.

Today, Wednesday I went over with all her medicine and she is doing wonderfully. And Rita Schneider took these lovely pictures. Enjoy!

Thank you Rita and Jake for opening your home for Lea. This is Amore!
