Animal welfare group to open Redding Pet Thrift Store~

A Redding animal welfare group is opening a storefront to help support its rescue efforts and introduce dogs for adoption.  "We're a boutique-thrift store," said Janie Hopper, president of the nonprofit ResQ Animal Coalition. Pawz for a Cause will celebrate its grand opening Saturday.  In what Hopper describes as "just a hodgepodge," the store will offer gently used children's clothing, silk flower arrangements and the requisite canine paraphernalia — including handcrafted dog collars, bone-shaped place mats and doggy sweaters.
"We want to make it fun and light, and support responsible dog ownership, and give some of these little homeless critters a permanent home," she said. ResQ specializes in small dogs that are sheltered in a network of foster homes pending adoption.  Saturday's event will feature snacks and fiddle music. Visitors also can sample a slice of a dog-shaped cake.  All proceeds from Pawz will go to support ResQ, which Hopper says already has spent more than $15,000 this year on medical care for its critters. It's also looking toward the future.  "If we can get enough people on board we plan on having a shelter in five years," she said. "That's our goal."  Having a central location has another benefit, said Barbara Dykstra, who serves on ResQ's board.  "It will help us get more dogs for people to see in a safe, quiet place," she said.  Pawz, which will be open 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, will be staffed entirely by volunteers.  "We really appreciate all the support we're getting from the community and people who love dogs," Dykstra said. "And the dogs do, too."  If you go  Who: ResQ Animal Coalition  What: Pawz for a Cause opening celebration  When: 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday  Where: 2940 Churn Creek Road, Enterprise Center in Redding  Contact: For more information, call 276-9364 or visit

Okay so my human was having a yard sale today.  I was laying in my nice green cool lawn at my Guard Station and low and behold, this cute little version of my human walked up to me.  Her name was "Daisy" and she proceeded to tell my human that these boots were the newest fashion and cost well over $100.00 (not sure how many biscuits that would be for me) and she didn't have that kind of money so one day she went to a boutique in Chico, CA and saw a pair (she is wearing them here) for only $19.00.  Curious as to the cheap price she asked the sales clerk why such a low amount.  The clerk said, because one boot is a size 8 and the other boot is a size 9.  Needless to say, Daisy bought them and if she hadn't of told my human, and if I wasn't eaves dropping we would have never guessed the sizes were different.

I instantly fell in love with her tennis shoes that were made into boots.  Now if you people can do that for humans, it's only fair to make some for our little paws....please?  My human would love a pair size 8 1/2 but has no idea where to buy these boots or what they are called.  She searched the internet and found nothing.  I would like them too in Black and Pink if that's alright with you.  wOOf...wOOf...~Eddie

Pricked my Paw and it hurts so bad~

Ouch...wOOf...wOOf...Grrrr...I was pawing with some of my human's stained glass this morning and decided, being the obedient faithful fluffy pup that I am, would help her grout some stained glass mosaic stepping stones.  All I can say is I should keep my paw's out of things while sniffing around.  My ouch is similar to what you human's would call a "paper cut".  Oh I wined like a baby only cuz it scared me when  human owner growled at me for getting in her way.  I learned my lesson as I will just lay on my comfy fluffy lounge bed and watch her with her stained glass addiction.  Here are a few stones she finished today.  wOOf...wOOf...Eddie~
