The Leader of the Pack Howls


Dear Readers,

It’s time to ring in a New Year and with it renewal of our lives and hopes and dreams. We get to start over with a clean slate and ideas of what we want to do and accomplish in this year.

Our new feature for 2016 is the “K-9 Service Corner” which will discuss the ways dogs help humans.

To start the year off, we bring you an inspiring story of “Hope” who was abandoned at a dog park but helped by many wonderful people who brought her to one of our own rescues, Circle L Ranch, where she was loved and cared for but at her age and disabilities, thought she would live out her life there… That is until she met a very special human couple named Robin and Terry who had enough room and love in their home to adopt her. In rescue, there is a lot of sadness but there is also much joy when you see a story like this. For people who do rescue, these are the ones you hang on to that inspire you to continue this difficult job that sometimes does not have that happy ending. Welcome to a very happy ending in, “There’s Always Hope.”

In our Seniors & Their Pets feature, you will meet a remarkable woman who has been rescuing and helping animals all of her life. At any age, her story would be amazing but at 86, it is almost unbelievable that she continues to help animals that have the luck of finding their way to her. Again, an inspiring story that I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.

In our Dogs In Blue feature, you will meet the K-9 Units from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Department. The four teams have been patrolling the I-40 corridor for about 5 years now and have some impressive busts that helped prevent drugs getting into our communities. It is a dangerous job, but one they do everyday to keep our communities safer. The K9s continue to prove how valuable they are in law enforcement. I think you will enjoy meeting Miley, Gemma, Vader and Cyrus and, of course, their two-legged partners.

And in our Horsin’ Around feature, you will meet young Emily Kruly who has just celebrated her 20th birthday who reflects on how much horses have helped her grow as a person since she was a very young girl. She tells of each one and how they helped her learn and changed her from a very shy little girl to a confident young woman who is now pursing a career in the veterinary field. For those of us who know and love horses, we can relate to Emily and her story. It continues to drive home the point that animals help us in many ways to grow as human beings. How lucky we are to have them in our lives.

As I write this letter, I am hopeful for the New Year and what it brings. Reading all the stories in this issue gives me inspiration and reminds me once again how lucky we are to be able to commune with these wonderful creatures who enrich our lives everyday.

We continue to be so grateful for all of you who have been our friends and supporters throughout the years. You mean the world to us and we hope we have made a difference in your lives in some small way.

From our entire staff, we wish you all a very happy, healthy and safe New Year.

Ann, Bernie & Miss Pauleena
