Here’s Miss?Esther again, who joins us in wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Though she’s totally deaf, blind in one eye, had a spine infection (which we’ve since treated), and has developed seizures (for which we’ve just started her on daily medications), Esther is one very happy girl. She follows us around the house, happily barking out of pure joy. (We’ve noticed over the years that the deaf ones always have a lot to say. We’re not sure why!) And, as I’ve pointed out in previous posts, Esther is’the very definition of a rolling dog. Any time is a good time to roll!
We are so blessed to receive donations that allow us to take in disabled dogs like Esther, get them the best veterinary care possible, and let them enjoy their lives, knowing they are loved and cherished. This year alone, three of our?disabled dogs — one-eyed Cap and blind Zach and Billy — also found wonderful new homes. That we can give these special dogs another chance like this is possible only because of the generous gifts we receive from people who support our charitable mission.
If you haven’t already made a gift for the disabled dogs and would like to do so, you can make an online donation on our website here, or mail a check to the farm at P.O. Box 150, Lancaster, NH 03584. And don’t forget, your donations are tax-deductible.
We are so grateful for your gifts — thank you!
I’m going to take a blog break for the remainder of the holidays, and will be back in early January.
Until then, happy holidays!
P.S. Our winter/holiday print newsletter is now online here as a PDF.
Merry Christmas and may God bless you all your do in the new year. Thank you for letting all of us be a small part of your family!
Enjoy your blog break – we all know how hard you work at everything you do!
Another year goes by as I’ve been a supporter of yours for many years and
every year I have more gratitude for all that you do and for all those that help rescue, rehabilitate, and set free, animals that need “our” help. Thank you!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone at Rolling Dog Farm! I hope your new year is free of vet visits this year, in comparison to last. We ourselves spent last night, Christmas Eve, at the emergency vet, after someone managed to run full speed into a table leg and hurt her neck. Luckily no bones broken. We made a generous although unplanned gift to the veterinarian’s office and were home before midnight with various medications and a strict crate-rest order. All you furry, four-footed ones, please behave yourselves and try to stay healthy so that Steve and Alayne can enjoy their holidays this year!

Linda said it best. Thank you both for letting the doggies be part of our lives, also.

I soo enjoy reading your posts. I spent hours when i first came here reading back posts. Its nice reading about animals without unhappy tears running down my face because i constantly see animals facing the plight of death by no means of their own….simply because they exist. Only happy tears when i come here 🙂
