Life, if well lived, is long enough. — Seneca


Ut oh ……… he’s baaaaaaack!

Ut oh. I have an unfortunate update about the infamous Scott Shields, a convicted felon of fake Ground Zero 9/11 fame.

Golden Retriever Bear would be so disappointed, especially since good ole dad has been stealing money in Bear’s name.

Just click here for the latest.


P.S.: It is simply amazing how some so called journalists continue to just copy work from others, work that had been proved false long ago. This week the NY Daily News had “Bear” named one of ten heroes of the decade. It appeared in an article by Larry McShane, entitled: DECADE OF HEROES.

Under a three inch color photo of Bear, was written: “The City paid homage to a heroic canine named Bear. This golden retriever found the most bodies in the 9/11 rubble. The pooch, killed by toxins from the toppled towers, was remembered with a ceremony at the Intrepid-Sea-Air-Space Museum.”

Sadly, Bear appears with nine other genuinely “real” NYC heroes. If you have a moment, please let Larry McShane know what you think about his reporting in terms of keeping this felon’s myth alive so that he can squeeze more money out of some innocent folks. His email address is:

Collie Jack helps with Baby Seal found in Garden

A seal pup was recently found by a family in their back garden, 18 miles inland! I just love how Collie Jack pitched right in to help.

“My daughter was out with our dog Jack in the snow when she came in and said ‘There’s a seal in the garden’. I said ‘No, it must be an otter’. We all went out and under the hedge was a seal looking quite chirpy and slithering around in the snow.”

It is thought the pup, which is just under a year old, emerged from the tiny stream at the bottom of the garden after swimming up the River Rother which leads out to the English Channel.

Prof Dwyer, who works at London South Bank University, said: ”I went back indoors and rang the RSPCA and police. The seal made its way across the garden into the pond, where it sat happily staring out of the pond in an enchanting way with its eyes just above the water.”

The family tried to contain the seal with the aid of collie Jack before assistance arrived. Prof Dwyer, 51, said: ”He was very good and, as collies do, he has a rounding instinct. The dog was quite happy to keep it in one place.

They’re baaaack!!!

pat-bear-graduation-web2.jpgI’ve often posted about my special Golden puppy raiser pal, Pat Lawson, a Golden lover after my own heart. She has raised over 20 puppies for various service dog organizations. Pat is shown here with her second CCI puppy “Bear” who graduated as a Skilled Companion in August of 2005.

Pat has a mini-grove of organically grown navel oranges that are sweet as sugar. The oranges are growing at the base of the San Tan mountains, in soil that promotes incredible sweetness. In the last 4 years I have bought well over 100 boxes of organic oranges.

Golden Alfie loves them as well, and the fact that they are totally organic, is just the icing on the cake.

I received this glowing letter last year from a fan of Pat’s oranges.

Many thanks for your blog post for Arizona Navel Oranges. I placed holiday orders based on your recommendation and emailed Pat Lawson for additional information. Pat gave me a call back that day and I had a lovely chat with her. Well, I received our packages yesterday, 12/16, and her oranges are the BEST.

I’m just “tickled-orange” to find such a terrific organic product from a small farmer who is also such a lovely woman.
Thanks again,
Lynn Beall

These delicious wonders only began shipping Monday and last only until February … which means you better not delay if you want to experience the joy yourself. Just go to and be sure to let Pat know Rochelle sent you. She always loves making new doggie friends.

Here is Golden Tavi, who Pat raised some time ago. He was so used to Pat’s oranges that when he was bought a “store” orange he only took a few bites before leaving it sitting on the ground. Pat says that wherever he ends up, she will have to keep him supplied with his favorite food of all time, San Tan Sweet Oranges.

Check out Tavi below demolishing one of Mom’s oranges.

Don’t delay, get on over to TODAY!
