The books have arrived and the first shipment is going out on Monday. Mom bought some special non toxic ink for me to do my pawtographs....it is water base... she wanted to be sure it was safe for me and really didn't want permanent ink paw prints in the carpeting around here.....this is going to be fun.....she's giving me a manicure so I can make the best possible impression. To repeat pricing below:

Mom's been to the post office and found the best way to ship them is Priority Mail which is $4.95 plus the price of the book which is $19.95...total $24.90 and you will have it in 2 days after we ship....pretty fast huh? If you order 2 books, it's $39.90 plus $8.95 S & H for a total of $48.85. If you want a whole bunch of books just get in touch with me and I will find out how much the shipping is.

You can send cashiers check, bank draft or money order to mom:

Marion Moeller Box 334 Gladeville, Tn 37071

or you can also do it thru my donate page and use pay pal but be sure we have your complete name and address for shipping. You will want to have this book trust me....and remember it will make a great gift to any animal lover and who doesn't love us?

I have my first pawtograph session that was set up by Hope's Haven Pet Rescue next Saturday and they will receive the profits from sales made there at Nashville Pet Products. I'll remind mom to take pix.

So--get those orders coming in....I want to see mom riding back and forth to the post office on her scooter with her siberian mascot riding behind her....I'll get a pictue of that too...lol

love & hugs Triumph


Meet my friend Crash

Click to view: My new friend Crash
Mom got an email from a rescue about a new dog--about 9 years old--a Dorkie that had been taken in......boy was he a mess...Tanya (the rescue lady) found him running around in the middle of the highway lost as a goose. He had apparently been doing this for awhile and searching around for food and shelter because he was skinny. He had a hernia the size of a fist, some rotten teeth, a cherry eye, hadn't been neutered, the fur was off his ears from bites, full of fleas, a bad back and legs that just don't work well and later when mom worked on him also pointed out that he is deafer than a door nail.

He did have a collar on and there was a phone number but it had been disconnected--he wasn't chipped either-- just another of us that when we're not perfect we get tossed and left behind.

BUT--Crash is going to be another success story--you know mom--especially when it comes to legs not working.....I gave her a lot of experience with that one...mom's given him light pad treatments and massage therapy along with the other tricks in her bag and realized he was going to have to have a cart. Tanya's husband had been working on a homemade one but you know how precise these things have to be so--as usual mom went begging.....she's pretty good at that too and guess what--one of the cart folks she deals with came up with one.....God bless Dave. Mom has also gotten my vet Godmother Helen to agree take a look at his back (she does chiropractic and accupuncture) among many other healing things.

So.. most of Crashes surgery has now been done--his stitches come out today and yesterday his new cart arrived....mom and Tanya fitted him and I helped get him going.

For the absolute best part....although Tanya and her family were fostering him--they have two great kids too-- all have fallen in love with him and are going to give him his forever loving home.

This is what rescue is all about....a bunch of caring and compassionate people walking the extra mile to help. These are also the things that the profits from the book I am in will be going to, so once again....BUY, BUY, BUY

We have lots of Crashes waiting to be taken care of and just feeding, sheltering and taking care of even routine medical, spaying, neutering, shots etc costs a bunch of money and must be done before we can even be adopted to our forever homes.

I think my sister Taz sent Crash our way because mom got the email on him the day she passed and his cart came the day her ashes came home......she knows he's taken care of now.

Went to post office again today because I forgot to find out how much to ship a book overseas. There are different rates to different countries but...$25 shipping will cover most of the first class and $35 for priority mail.....if it is any more than that....Triumph will cover it. Wow overseas shipping is costly......have to fill out all declarations papers etc.....

thanks...moe


I'M IN A BOOK celeb again

It's been awhile but I have so much to tell you all and I am just so excited.

I'M IN A BOOK!!!! Elise Lufkin has written her 3rd book with photographs by Diana Walker. You may know them from the other books they collaborated called "Found Dogs" and the one called "Second Chances".

The new book is called "To The Rescue"....Found Dogs with a Mission and there I am on pages 41, 42 and 43 in all my glory and story....

Something very important here too is that know that when you order your book from us, profits are going to some local shelters and dogs medical expenses that need to be helped just like I needed. So many people helped me and it is my chance to give back.

as Jamie Lee Curtis said "If the title alone doesn't get you, the images and stories will. Here are animals and humans, bonded together through the hardest of circumstances. A must read, a must see, a must share."

If you place your order thru my site I will personalize it with my "pawtograph" for you.

Mom's been to the post office and found the best way to ship them is Priority Mail which is $4.95 plus the price of the book which is $19.95...total $24.90 and you will have it in 2 days after we ship....pretty fast huh? If you order 2 books, it's $39.90 plus $8.95 S & H for a total of $48.85. If you want a whole bunch of books just get in touch with me and I will find out how much the shipping is.

You can send cashiers check, bank draft or money order to mom:

Marion Moeller Box 334 Gladeville, Tn 37071

or you can also do it thru my donate page and pay pal but be sure we have your complete name and address for shipping. You will want to have this book trust me....and remember it will make a great gift to any animal lover and who doesn't love us?

Now I have to work on mom to get the rest of my updates done but wanted to give you a heads up--mom is receiving the books next week and they will be in bookstores at the same price but won't have my pawtograph. I do each book as we get the orders and mom will get them right out--we only live a mile from the post office.

BUY BUY HUGS HUGS......Triumph


My Sister Taz gets her Silver Harness

Today was just one of the saddest days I have ever had.....mom is still teary so I will write you.

Tonight there will be another bright star added to the sky......my sister.Juroblyn's Raz-a-ma-Taz Star earned her silver harness this morning.. She had the best of care from her medical team who did all they could but the bottom line was there was nothing to do. Mom was of course by her side with her during the surgery and when they found the extent of the cancer made the decision to simply not wake her up but let her go peacefully and with dignity on to the Rainbow Bridge where she can run and terrorize the other dogs, be happy and free of pain and sing for everyone. It all came on suddenly over the past couple days....there had been no indication that anything was wrong.....she had all her blood work 2 months ago before having her teeth cleaned and everything was fine....she has been running and playing and eating.....mom felt something was wrong 2 days ago and took her right up to the vet...you know mom and her intuition....mom asked to have her abdomen x-rayed and that's when they found the mass.......we had last night with her here at home and then did surgery very early this morning.

Taz will always be remembered for having the muddiest of feet and face.....playing in the water buckets all over the kitchen floor and who could ever forget how she sang and woo wooed her way thru row, row, row your boat....and....crawling into the refrigerator on her first Thanksgiving day and falling asleep on a shelf with the leftovers as mom was putting them away....... She was just one day short of 10 years old. Oct. 10 1999-October 9, 2009.

We will all miss that smiling, devilish face.....she lived up to her name right to the end.....Duncan had to learn to out run her....she and Patches always let us know when it was time to eat, Whisper and I are just quietly mourning her. Taz took care of me many times during my various challenges......mom said she just had to give her the final gift of love and let her go to sleep.

So, watch for that rising star tonight and know she is being held in the arms of love.

I'm sending you a pictures of her so you can see how beautiful she was and goofy too
