  • Comments Off on Ma lost my password

When Facebook decided to change my regular Facebook page to what they called a “celebrity” page I wasn’t having it. But it was forced on me I’m guessing because I had almost 4000 friends. But when it change over to the new status I lost all friend contact. Those 4000 friends became “likes” and all my history had vanished. 

Ma was so mad that she refused to make a new page. She didn’t want me to start over again since I had shared my entire 5 years of freedom on the old page and now it was gone.  

After a few months Ma calmed down and decided to remake a new facebook page. Although reluctant, she hastily created a Yahoo email so she could make a new Facebook page. In her hast she didn’t write down the passwords that she made up on the spot. She didn’t think about this until the day came, about 2 months into the new page, that they asked me for my password to access my account.

Ma tried every password that she’s ever used and could possibly think of.  Sadly in was frutal and couldn’t find anyway into my new accounts. 

On August 7th, from her page,  she posted a status for me simply stating “Don’t bother posting to Autumn’s page. She lost her passwords and can’t access her accounts!”

From now on I will not have a facebook page however you can still access me from her page.

Love always from Autumn 



This March will mark the 5th year that I have been with my Ma. I had just turned 4 when I was rescued by the National Mill Dog Rescue organization in Colorado. They found me in a puppy mill in near Lebanon, Missouri where I had served the first 4 years in bondage, forced to be a puppy mill momma. The NMDR took me to Colorado Springs and cleaned me up. Ma just happened to be looking at their website when she saw my photo.


Ma made some inquiries and soon I was on my way to meet my forever Ma!

I’ll be celebrating my 9th birthday on March 15th. In the past five years I’ve come a long way and learned a lot of what a dog is.

Here’s some of the things I’ve learned:

I can bark – It took about 3 years but now that I’ve learned I love to voice my opinion!

I can go down the stairs – I still can’t go up but if the stairs are wide I can walk down them!

I can drink from a bowl – This was hard to learn and I still have a tendency to try and throw the water back into my mouth but I’m using my tongue so much more!

I don’t get scared…much – Ma taught me that everything that scares me is something that should not be feared. I now stand tall to those things and bark at them…flashing lights still scare me.

I can walk on most surfaces – Some shiny floors I have a problem with but I can handle most surfaces.

Those are some of the more important things I’ve learned along with humans can be super nice and they are not all mean.  In my five years of freedom I’ve traveled extensively, met friends from all over the world, I have a great wardrobe, I love walkies and rides in the car. And I understand certain commands and vocal patterns in Ma’s voice.

The best thing that I’ve learned is that I am a valued animal with a voice and I am loved! I’ve yet to learn how to give kisses but Ma stays hopeful that someday I will learn how to show her how much I love her back.

Until then, I continue to learn and love life and love all those who have supported me since my freedom day!  THANK YOU ALL,!

With Love from Autumn

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,400 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 23 trips to carry that many people.

  • Comments Off on Fighting dogs now being trained to love


371 dogs were seized by federal and state authorities last month in Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia and Texas in what authorities say was the second largest dogfighting ring in the United States.  

The dogs were placed in the temporary care of the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the United States. More than 250 of them — including puppy No. 917 — were brought to a converted air-conditioned warehouse, where the ASPCA is caring for them. The others are in the care of the Humane Society. 

If he hadn’t been rescued, 917 and the other puppies would have likely become typical dogs bred to fight.

The ASPCA’s rehabilitation program is turning these  former fighting dogs into loving dogs.
