Dog Stories Wanted

Dog Stories Wanted

Dogs are everywhere, and at one time or another, most people have had a dog in their lives or still do. A book is being compiled of dog stories, Becky Holland, retired Georgia newspaper journalist/freelance writer/blogger, is hoping to collect dog stories from all over the middle Georgia area.

Holland is a native of Bleckley County, and once was the sports and features editor of the Cochran Journal, and most recently served as the news editor of the Americus Times-Recorder and the lifestyle editor of the LaGrange Daily News. She currently writes for Examiner.Com, Kirkus Indie and a variety of other online and print publications.

Share your dog story by finishing the following sentence: "My dog has made/makes a difference in my life by ..." in 300 to 500 words, sharing real life experiences or memories. Be sure to include your dog's name, age, gender, breed, your name, age, location and how you got your dog.

Stella Needs a Home

Stella Needs a Home

Georgia Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation, a non-profit rescue that focuses on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of shelter dogs, has several dogs that are ready for adoption and are looking for homes. 

Stella is a very quiet Bichon Frise who needs a loving home. Stella, like all the dogs at GCRR, has been full 'vetted,' which means shots, microchipped and fixed. She came from an out of state shelter, and has a cataract in her right eye. A sweet personality, Stella may take a bit to warm up to her new owners, but once she does, it is certain that she will become a forever companion.

She is five years old and likes the quiet life.

Call the Georgia Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation in Cochran.  Call (478)271-4277 and/or email pittieprotector@yahoo.com.
