I am thankful for my three children Sergio, Gina and Bianca, that they are healthy and happy; and they have someone special who loves them and friends who care for them. I love you very much! I was as good as mom as I could be but I know there was so much I could have have done better.
I am thankful for all the friends I have made this year, who share my passion for animals. I love you all.
I am thankful for the doggies and animals that have come into my life, and I have been given the privilege to make their lives better; even the ones who I was not there in time, I will never forget you , moreover my fight for you grows even stronger.
I am thankful I have 8 cold noses to wake up to and warm furry snuggles to sleep by.
On this Thanksgiving eve .... I remember you, Horatio, my sweet bully boy;
I am thankful for the precious time I had with you.
I like other dogs and cats, I need a loving home. Won't you come and rescue me?

Pit Bull Awareness Day 2008
was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to YOU!!
Thank you to everyone that came to our 1st Pit bull Awareness day In memory of Horatio.
We sure had a positive reaction with so many people that we came across at Old Sac. It was very satisfying to see so many pet owners join us. Many people liked the idea of meeting every month. The bullies looked great! Mom's and dads in their bully shirts sure made the event special.
A dear friend, Suzi Johnston who attended said ," It was a small gathering, but it was sure heart warming. Some wonderful dogs in attendance (& some pretty nice humans too!). I know this will grow year by year!"
A GIANT HUG & THANKS to Candice Anderson, Dawn Capp from Chako.org & my friend Steve Hall for all their support and help, I could not have done it without you.
Love, Peace & Hugs Dear Friends
Yes on 2! Yipeee It Passed!

Pit Bull Awareness Day 2008
Come one, Come all…Saturday, October 25, 2008
It's the 2nd Annual Nationwide Pit Bull Awareness Day.
Why a Pit Bull Awareness Day? In light of the constant negative publicity and sensationalized hype that surrounds pit bulls, Pit Bull Awareness Day was established as a day to focus on these incredible dogs and their devoted, responsible owners. This event will not only be taking place across the United States, but also internationally in such countries as Russia and Canada. Here in Sacramento a Meet-N-Greet and Bully Walk will be held. With the date being so close to Halloween, we encourage you to dress up your dog in costume, or even bandanna’s as a great alternative. We are asking for all responsible dog owners and well-behaved dogs to please participate. This is open to all breeds, but especially any that fall under BSL (Breed Specific Legislation). Here is the event info:
What: Bully Walk (in costume)& Meet-N-Greet !
In memory of Horatio - The Story of an Unbroken Spirit of a July 4th Bully
WHEN: Saturday, October 25, 2008
Where: In Old Sac at the Park on I Street (across from Discovery Museum)
Hope to see all of you there, the larger the group the bigger the impact! We have to be the voice for our dogs, so please help get the word out. Let’s make this event a BIG success!

I am fighting agains the BSL and trying to save many bullies. Along with many caring people, we have saved the life of Forrest, the bully from Denver. People like Rep Morgan Carroll, Delia Easton from Dogster, our friend Maureen ; we wrote, called Denver officials and demanded justice for Forrest. Even though his daddy, Chris had to give him up it was a huge step towards abolishing breed discrimination. I hope Forrest and Chris will be reunited one day.
Because of you my sweet boy, I was contacted by a lady who asked for my advice regarding a bully girl who was abandoned, neglected, abused and treated meanly. Now her name is Lucy, a beautiful red bully girl, only one year old, who was used as a puppy making machine for profit. I decided Lucy deserved better and was worried her life was in jeopardy. Lucy was rescued on august 19. She has been diagnosed with having a heart murmur, horrible infected ears, heartworm disease and had several abscesses in her abdomen.
I have also saved a basenji mix girl, Penny from the Delano shelter, she was due to be put down the day I rescued her, August 21. She is a sweetheart, a very gentle and affectionate little girl .
She has learned to walk with a leash, to eat her own food, to cuddle and be part of a pack. She loves to play with my basenji mix boy Zorro like only basenjis know how, rough playing but never mean.

It is with a very sad & heavy heart to inform you that our dear, dear boy, Horatio, is now in bully heaven.
July 4, 2008 - July 31, 2008
He will be missed greatly by Mommy Ena and her family. He fought very hard, for himself & for his mama, to stay in his only recently wonderful world. Physically his heart could no longer go on. She would like to thank all of his wonderful friends and supporters that have helped make the last month of his life, despite being so ill, the best month of his life.
doGspeed to you Horatio, we love you, you sweet, sweet courageous 4th of July bully boy. Your spirit will live on in the many lives who you have touched. We miss you. Your mommy will never forget her gentle brindle pit bullyboy, or his big brown eyes that told her that he loved her or his broken tail that would wag everytime he saw her.
If you would like to send condolences or a contribution to Horatio's emergency medical treatment last night, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for Ena's home address. Thank you & bless you. You've shown Horatio that the people can be kind & loving.

I always thought I was luvabull, but now I know I am. I have a mommy, a sister who babysits me, a new bed, TOYS... omg TOYS... I love my toys. I think this one is supposed to be a football... or a pig.. it's a piggie football! :D
and I got a funny lookin' frog. It goes "rib-it." Frogs are funny. And a pretty blue collar. I think I look pretty cute in it.
I am making friends with my canine siblings and Peaches the Cat, too. Well, almost all of my siblings. Momma's spoiled little Basenji Zorro- Babaloo - is bit jealous of me and he ignores me. He does funny things to get Momma's attention. One night Momma gave me a bath like she always does and then fell asleep by me. She woke up in the middle of the night to go to her own bed and couldn't find any of her pillows. All 8 were missing. She found them outside in the mud. (Babaloo did that!)
My favorite things to do now are to watch my canine siblings play outside
Someday, I'm gonna be well enough to go romp around with them outside. I want to play really bad. But the doctors say I have to rest. I still have 102-104 temperatures, whatever that means. It makes me shiver & shake. Oh well, it's a good thing I like sleeping, too.
Sometimes I curl up on my Momma's chair!
My eye looks a little bad in that picture, but the doctor said he thinks it will be fine in a week. YAY! I eat and eat and eat yummy food two times a day but I can't gain any weight. The doctor says it will take time.
Ok, I'm tired now.
Over and Out! Love, Mr. H
