My girl Roxybelle is growing like a weed and so is Mr. Three he is the center dark headed goat in this photo. Surprising they are about the same age and neither one can be picked up and held anymore.
Roxybelle is playing peek-a-boo around the fence post with them this morning. Notice how fluffy she is getting. She is growing her undercoat and changing patterns. The black on her legs is shedding off and she may have all tan legs after, not sure yet. She also has a bit of gold coming in across her shoulders, neck, and upper back. She was considered 'blanket' pattern, but they change so much that she may actually end up a 'saddle' pattern. Only God knows.

Roxybelle just had her 6 month birthday and has grown a lot in the last month. It's not easy to keep her still long enough for a photo. She loves laying in the monkey grass around one of our Live Oak trees. She really does add a lot of joy to my life. I thank God for my sweet girl. Have a blessed day, Love, Sis Frankie
Former hunting dog now brings joy and comfort to both people and pets
Ben Forman will never forget the story of how his dog Miracle came to Homeward Bound, an animal welfare group in London, Kentucky.
In the fall of 2011, a woman was driving down a rural road and saw 2 men had pulled their truck to the side of the road. They had guns, which they were using to beat on something in the dirt behind the truck. Terrified, the woman held back and waited until the men cleared out.
They had left their victim behind in a ditch. The purebred foxhound likely was abandoned because she had failed at her hunting duties.
About Cat Tales:Cat Tales is a practical and fun way to teach children about the significant fruit of the Spirit, while enjoying the sensational adventures of nine real cats. Cat Tales shares the stories of nine remarkable cats exploring nine abundant lives. During their experiences, they learn about the importance of God’s plan, while they each exhibit a fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23, NLT). Cats tell stories from their own perspective. Each cat, related to one another, was adopted by the author and her family. About Dog Tales: Let’s emBARK upon a whole new journey with eight real adopted dogs, their friends, and family! As these incredible canines discover the blessings of following God’s plan, we laugh and learn more about life, ourselves and our Creator. Dog Tales is based on the Beatitudes, part of the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:3-12). For each Beatitude, a special adopted pet represents and exhibits the important character Jesus calls for His followers. Dog Tales gets pup close and personal with these amazing dogs—adopted by the author and her family—and also features other adoptive pet friends.

When Animal Aid Unlimited received a call about a dog wandering the streets in rural India, they weren’t sure about what to expect. They heard that the dog had a severely swollen face from some sort of injury, but they still had no way of knowing just how bad it was.
When they finally found the poor pup, they realized just how dire the situation had become.
The dog’s face had become so swollen from an abscess that he hardly even looked liked a dog anymore.
