The ongoing Political Musings of a former (now Stray) Yellar Dawg Dem.
This is a Feminist Blog, in the tradition of Susan B. Anthony.
"Just Tell Them...
I have worked 40 years to make the Women's Suffrage platform broad enough for Atheists and Agnostics to stand upon, and now if need be I will fight the next 40 to keep it Catholic enough to permit the straightest Orthodox religionist to speak or pray and count her beads upon."

Back in the Throes of Rescue
Sigh. It's been nice, these past couple of days, to catch up with all my political friends and causes. So many things to worry about. A wife beheading in NY. Marriages annulled in California. Wolves (and guns) in Alaska. Racism in the Post. Sexism in the White House.
Where does it all end? Or, should I say... where does it begin.
By "begin" I mean, action outside of the echo chamber that is blogging.
For me, today begins the ramp up for very busy rescue weekend. I have many vet appointments to keep today and tomorrow. Then over the weekend, I am doing a transport for a mama hound and her litter. They are on the way to Chicago..... and I am going to get them from KY to Indy.
I'm also bringing, to my own home, Roxie (see photo.) Sweet little girl. Her owner has been killed in an auto accident, and she is scared to death at the shelter. I figure she can hang out with my Jackie, until she finds her new forever family.
My focus will now, of necessity, turn away from the blogs and petitions...... and toward the little four-leggeds in my care.
I'll trust my PUMA blogger friends to stay on top of political happenings for me while I'm away.
In "real life" Dawg is a mom, a nurse, a pet rescuer and a tireless advocate for animal rights.
Dawg is happily married for thirty years and has raised three awesome children. She holds an advanced degree in Family Science, wherein her research was focused on women's support circles during parturition. Her dedication to Women's Rights is directly affected by her belief that motherhood should not be a sentence to isolation and disenfranchisement.
Dawg is on hiatus from political bloggery d/t the intense demands of her engagement in the No Kill movement at this time. However, she remains influenced by PUMA politics and reads the blogs of her fellow PUMAs (at right) regularly.
Thanks for the Visit, all you Stray Dogs and PUMAs!
"Sooner or later we all discover that the important moments in life are not the advertised ones, not the birthdays, the graduations, the weddings, not the great goals achieved. The real milestones are less prepossessing. They come to the door of memory unannounced, stray dogs that amble in, sniff around a bit and simply never leave.
