Family Gives Shelter Dog With Inoperable Cranial Tumor the Gift of a Lifetime

Emilio Cogliani

Tuesday (12/29/15) in Houston, TX.


How It Works

A Shelter. This 3-year-old dog came into Montgomery County Animal Shelter as a stray today.

A Rescue.Lone Star Boxer Rescue was contacted by the shelter and they agreed to take him into their program immediately.

A Volunteer. He was transported to their vet for further tests. There is a tumor on the inside of his cranial cavity under the bone.

A Foster. It is inoperable and his life expectancy is 2 days. He is now in hospice care.

A Decision-maker. I asked Leisha Stinchcombe, the director of the rescue group, “Why did they pull this dog from the shelter today?” Her response was, “Just to make sure he knows love for a few days.”

2015 was a great year for polar bears and for EATEN


Not only did we see plenty of great news about polar bears but EATEN(my first novel) is now well on it’s way to being a resounding success. Don’t let your friends and colleagues have all the nightmares! Fabulous read for a long cold NH winter’s night but also an excellent choice for the beach…perhaps fewer nightmares?


The Canadian Ice Service predictions for winter 2016 off eastern Canada (where my novel takes place) is for extensive ice for the third year in a row.That means only nine years to go for the situation in 2025 to meet my speculations regarding a most terrifying onslaught of starving polar bearsin Newfoundland.

I don’t ask for donations here at PolarBearScience – if you appreciate my efforts (418 posts and almost 630,000 views since late July 2012) and would like to see more of the same, please buy a copy or…

Woman Adopts Cat, Returns To Shelter For His BFF He Grew Up With

Emilio Cogliani

This woman did the purrfect thing.

Two cats, a 16-year-old cream-colored tabby named Max and 11-year-old white and orange kitty named Mojo, entered Anne Arundel County Animal Control in Millersville, Maryland, together, on Nov. 13.

Although they had to be placed in separate cages, the two cats had a lifelong bond: They had entered the shelter together because they grew up together.

It only took cute, green-eyed Mojo a few weeks to get adopted, leaving Max behind at the shelter. But once Mojo’s new human took him home, she felt a pang of guilt. Mojo is a wonderful pet, she told the volunteer group Friends of Anne Arundel County Animal Control, but she couldn’t get Max out of her mind.

“The idea of him living out his life in a cage just broke my heart,” Mojo?s mom said, according to the organization’sFacebook page.

So, on Dec. 26…

The 10 Best Pit Bull Stories From 2015

Emilio Cogliani

Our favorite pit bulls of 2015 are an incredible lot.

They’ve overcome abuse, they’ve cavorted with rock stars, they’ve worn pajamas and they’ve raised a whole lot of money to help others of their kind.These dogs are goofy and wonderful and inspiring.But, sadly, it was tragedy and injustice that brought many of these dogs to our attention.

So here’s a goal for 2016, dog lovers: let’s do our best to get rid of the bad laws, terrible violence, and other rotten, preventable circumstances that made these pits suffer before their remarkable triumphs.
