The latest issue of Dogster magazine (Dec. 2016/Jan. 2017) has a very nice two-page article on the farm, which I scanned in and have posted here. They don’t seem to have this on their website yet, which is why I’m using these scanned images.
I did the interview with the writer via email back in June, and then sent photos to accompany the story. That’s why most of those photos may seem familiar to long-time blog readers!
I will say that we are a little uncomfortable with the term “heroes” being applied to us. Yes, I think Alayne and I do good work, and these disabled animals reward us immensely for it, but heroic it isn’t. My personal view is that we as a society use that term too casually. It should be reserved for people who put their lives at risk for others, or overcome incredible challenges of one sort or the other. Just my editorial comment, for what it’s worth!
In any case, this article is part of a longstanding series in the magazine highlighting various “Dogster Heroes,” both human and canine, and we are honored the magazine chose to focus on our disabled dogs for this edition. It’s a lovely write-up on what we do and shows how disabled animals can have a wonderful quality of life. Thank you, Dogster!
