If Einstein says so....

Dear Friends:

In June, I was fortunate to participate in the rescue of several dogs whose time was up in the shelters where they were. Three of them - all from Georgia - have found safe haven - one in Syracuse, one in Connecticut, and one with me. Help me welcome my new Australian Cattle Dog, "Friday," to the family. He was found as a stray and unadoptable because he has three legs. But he doesn't know it, and he is full of energy and excitment and love. These are just 3 out of millions who suffer: If you'd like to know more about dog rescue - whether transporting dogs to safety in short leg increments, sponsoring a rescue, or other ways to help - please contact me.

As for the July calendar items, it seems most of them are outdoors - here's hoping for good weather, and enjoy the summer!

And just in this morning, PDE's 2nd Quarter Market Update. Please scroll to July 31 entry for the summary.

Best, Squad
