Moosonee Puppy Rescue officially began in May 2003. Once we knew of the conditions in so many northern communities we had to act. Our purpose became to save dogs from being trapped and shot in the isolated communities of Moosonee, Moose Factory, Attawapiskat, Fort Albany and Kashechewan.
 
- We have placed over 1000 dogs to date, and we are grateful to have known each one of them -

OCTOBER195, 2014 | THANKS. SADNESS AND HOPE
 
 
I must say we had a very busy Thanksgiving and Boyce was a huge help in the kitchen. As you can imagine this was his first celebration and he was intrigued with watching us make five pies, stuffing and of course the turkey. We treated him to tastes of things he could never have imagined and his delight made the day for us. The puppies spent two days walking around with their noses in the air because of all the wonderful smells wafting from the kitchen. Taking a moment to gather the dogs and give thanks is one of our fondest traditions and this year was no different. There was some sadness to consider but we refused to let it colour a day that meant so much to us all.
I am glad we had the time we did with Boyce (below) because he found his forever home today. I questioned whether we would ever find someone who would appreciate him the way we did and admire his desire to run and be free but we did. I loved that boy and he finally loved me back but when I explained that it was his time to leave us and that he could do it if he tried he believed me. I told him how he would have to give new things and people a chance and that if he focused he could come to understand the differences he would experience. He actually seemed anxious to try and I know that Millie, the dog they have now, will make him feel comfortable and confident. She most likely will not lead him astray (and over the fence) the way our dog Lady Rose did but that is a good thinkg. I wish my beautiful boy sweetness and joy on his new journey.
We have ten pups with us now but only five have made it to the web site (Phonics is above). I will do my best to post the others as they are truly delightful but my upcoming surgery and recovery will slow things down considerably. That is not to say we stop what we do because until the dogs stop coming we don't stop the love, care and placement of them either. I just ask that people emailing us understand if the response is not as prompt as we may like it to be because my husband Paul will be tasked with doing it all until I am back on my feet again.I thank him for all he does and for all those who have sent support and encouragement for my well being. I just wish one of them had told me I had to be awake through the surgery. I will be given a sedative but apparently the Doctors may need to ask me questions now and again. I was told I would most likely not be able to sleep though because the saws they use make a great deal of noise. REALLY!!!!!!!! I shall prevail though as I will remember and count every dog or pup we have rescued and known and that will take me to at least 1200 and I will linger on each one in my memory till the deed is done. Once again the dogs save the day.
