orange pin May 18, 2015 - 100 dogs plus participate in Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinics - Combined, the Saturday and Sunday Rattlesnake Avoidance Clinics for Dogs trained 100 dogs and retested about a dozen and a half dogs which participated in previous clinics held from one to five years ago. Despite the rain, sleet and hail on the West Mesa, most of the 40 dogs and owners endured and participated. The elements forced all to seek shelter in vechicles for about thirty minutes until blue skies returned. Thanks to Terry and Janet Chandler for their proffesional training skills for dogs and handlers. Dave Snyder and Bill Bradford provided key assistance in fitting dogs with e-collars to keep the clinic moving. Bill and Tom Mauter handled the administrative work promoting and scheduling participants for these cllinics. Look for Tom's photos of both clinics to be posted shortly.

orange pinMarch 30, 2015 Another sucessful CNMBC Brittany Rescue stroy from Julianne L.:

Good morning Denise,

Today is the second year anniversary of my having adopted Mia, and once again I want to thank you and your colleagues for having rescued, and cared for, this lovely little girl. She is now six years old and a wonderful companion and presence in my home. While she can be excitable and always ready to run, and preferably run free, much as should, she is after all true to her breed, she is also sweet, playful, loving, reliable, and a great “house dog.”

Your work is so valuable, saving otherwise unwanted creatures, enabling dogs and folks to get together and enrich their lives.

Photos 1, 2 and 3 of Mia.
