Hey Wait a Minute

That's not a bunny!

Meet Miss Margie, no Heartland is not going into the dog rescue business, well mostly anyway. This is the beautiful Margie. She showed up in the pasture about 3 weeks ago. She was huddled down, cold, hungry and scared. Heartland took her in and just look at her now!
Margie appears to be part Beagle and some other kinds of dogs thrown in. She is about a year old and has now been spayed and gotten her shots. She is a very sweet girl who loves company. Margie is learning her manners and how to walk on a leash. She needs a wonderful indoor home and to be treated with kindness and love and have lots of playtime. What a great girl she is!

Margie looks happy! Good for you to help her get ready for a permanent home! (Maybe she's an honorary bunny!)

With a set of ears and a fluffy tail, she'd make an adorable bunny.

Seriously though, isn't it funny how animals in need seem to find kind-hearted people?

Layla, they don't always find kind people. The individuals that abandon their no longer wanted pets out in the rurals areas are doing so at great peril of those pets who loved and trusted them. Farmers and ranchers out here will shoot a little dog(she's only 25 lbs.)like Margie if she happens to wander onto their land. There is no law against it. In fact, many who do shoot these dogs, (and cats by the way),do so while lamenting the fact that "they must do that because their numbers are growing exponentially." Most small town shelters (usually just the police department's back lot, if they have one at all)won't come out to pick up a stray if it is outside the city limits. If the farmer/rancher is able to catch a pet and actually brings it in to the town's 'shelter' the animal will be given 72 hours (maybe), then he/she will be euthanized. I cannot say on this blog what i think of people who dump their pets out in the middle of nowhere and expect others to deal with the sad realities of their pets' fate.

deary me - I had no idea that farmers and ranchers would just shoot animals like that! that's shocking and terribly sad, as sad as giving them 72hours.
Margie thank goodness made it to you, safely, and hopefully she will have a loving forever home soon.
It will be good when peoples' attitude change to the better from ignorant and selfish to thoughtful, caring and kind. I believe it will happen - thanks for having your blog here to spread the good word :)
best wishes and cuddles for Margie xxx Annette

Annette, in some cases the shooting is prompted by a few people who enjoy the brutality but in other cases it is prompted by pack dogs attacking livestock. For a while a pack of dogs were running together in this county and killing sheep and attacking horses. I guess Scotland doesn't have such things going on. You are fortunate. The attitudes have been changing, but the change is painfully slow. Thank you for your good wishes and I will deliver your cuddles to Margie personally. She soaks that up like a sponge. We hand her dog biscuits throughout the day. She will always first lick our hand and beg for as much attention as time allows and she then eats the biscuit. She'd rather have love than treats.
