Gather round, I’ve got some talking to do.
I’ve been harassed and ridiculed beyond belief by this group of comrades…. if only you guys knew what I’ve been subjected to. Wes is the absolute worst one closely followed by Julie and Jessica.
Let me tell you all about it.
I met this little dog in the first 5 minutes of walking into the back room of the auction house, now let me preface that by saying I’ve met literally thousands of dogs back there…thousands..upon thousands…
I have connected with many dogs in that back room that I make sure and try to have them come home with us. I’ve shed many tears for the ones that I connected with only to lose them and look at their horrified faces leave the table to go to another pice of ^&*%$ mill.
It’s devastating…and it leaves permanent scars…
Only twice have I met a dog back there that consumed me, one was Pinkie Earline and the other ended up being called Honeycomb.
Why does this happen? I don’t know but when it does it’s a problem. When I met Pinkie I just about fell on the floor, I had just lost Mooie and was still devastated and there she was, full of confidence, fearless and all of 8 weeks old, and it was if Mooie had sent her there.
I met this dog we would call Honeycomb , and my heart pitter pattered and I thought (oh that’s not good) but I pushed past it.
I asked Laura to look in the catalog and see how old she was because she looked like a 5 month old pup but she was in terrible shape. She’s overweight, I could tell she has dry eye already, her skin is a mess and pocked full of bald spots all over her body covered in infection and missing hair.
Laura said she’s a year old and I thought geez she’s so tiny and in such bad shape for a dog thats so young, but it didn’t change the attraction to her. She wasn’t one bit afraid in that auction house, just like Pinkie, dogs like that are too confident to be afraid, they just roll with whatever life throws at them and are undeterred.
She’s not a dog that you look at and say ( oh she’s beautiful ) but I could feel her soul and it was trouble. I could see her naughtiness, her spunk and her spirit. I’ve told you before I’m always enticed by bad girls, confident girls, stinkers. She reminded me of Mooie, just full of vinegar just like her.
I had a legal pad that I made notes on as we met dogs. I wrote her number and jotted down, **she must leave**…
I knew the mill owners wouldn’t want her, she weighs all of 12 or 13 pounds, she’s a mess and she won’t be a good money maker and that’s why they were getting rid of her.
We were successful with saving her along with all of the others I had chosen, this group had us pretty happy because we literally got every dog we went after, and then some.
Fast forward to coming home with all of them, every time I saw her with all of the others my heart soared and I pushed it away. Everyone knew and the harassment began, Julie would send me videos of her, and pictures of her and call her my little girl, Wes would say “ oh my God this little dog is amazing” Jessica would say “ oh Mama she’s trouble for you”
I told Julie to keep that little dog away from me and I tried to stay away from the temp sanctuary. Last Friday she needed me to come over there to help her do assessing of the group and there she was again….ugh….I spent a couple of hours there and left just pushing her out of my mind..
A few days ago we decided that Julie needed a break and all of the fosters were moved to the Ranch and once again here comes trouble, and here comes the harassment.
Here’s my problem, I’ve got 14 dogs and the last thing I need is another dog…….but I don’t like to ignore my gut, it doesn’t lie to me. I learned to listen to my gut a very long time ago and when you ignore it you regret it.
Laura had this dog promised to a previous adopter and that’s a terrible thing when I don’t know what I want to do..Laura contacted them and told them about my struggle.
I plead my legal case to the group and I said look here’s how I see it, since Dog Ranch Rescue has started we have rescued 860 dogs….860 of them….. and I have only failed 3 times…..Pinkie Earline…..Koufax….and Miss Kitty…..
I told everyone that George doesn’t count because he in my mind just came home to where he was born with his mama and his sisters.
Laura said no, you adopted Edith who passed away after 5 months and then Ed…..I said no, you are incorrect…..I did not fail for either of them….Kirk failed on both of them….I would have placed that naughty Bulldog but Kirk insisted she come home with us. Travis has said it’s a good thing Kirk fell in love with her and wouldn’t let her go because if we adopted her out she would have been right back with them saying “she’s horrible!!!!” 😂😂
I only failed on those 3 and I reminded the group that I was strong and adopted out Fern who I loved, Frannie who I loved, and lets not forget about Blackberry’s babies that I raised from day one and little Cranberry that it took every ounce of my being to let her be adopted….Laura would send me pictures of her as her mom posted them and say “you screwed up by not keeping this one” but I knew in my gut that they weren’t meant to be…I always listen to my gut…
While pleading my legal case I told Jessica please do the math on my failures because I suck at math, and she quickly did the math and said I’ve only failed .0034 percent of the time out of 860 dogs rescued.
I reminded Travis that he has failed with Sir Frederick, Sweet Baby, and Mr. Daryl Dixon, leaving us at the same percentage.
.0034 % just 1/3 of 1 percent....that’s the math, that’s the cold hard fact of math…😂
Yesterday when I was photographing this stinker I just looked at her in the yard standing firm on the ground all full of herself, her posture and her physical being and she just struck me because it just looked like Mooie, she moves like Mooie, her body is shaped just like Mooie, she’s afraid of nothing just like Mooie and she is an absolutely bad little girl into trouble..She’s naughty, she’s a handful, she gets into stuff, and bites stuff, and she eats poop….Lordy….😳
She’s only 12 months old, she just had a birthday exactly 7 days before Pinkie’s. She already has a double inguinal hernia, her eyes are dry and need medication, her feet are already breaking down from living in a cage, her palate is very long and she’s noisy all the time and most likely will need surgery, she’s covered in infection, ear infection skin infection. If she lived in a mill for a few more years she would absolutely be in nightmarish physical condition and her eyes would both be ulcerated from dryness and scratching for years..
But that’s not going to happen, because I listen to my gut and it says I don’t care if the last thing you need is another dog because this one stays here.
She doesn’t have one name she has two names, my dads aunt was named Bess and I adored her, she was a tiny little woman at 4’11 but full of sass and adorableness. This little girl is named after her, and her second name is because she’s just a little gem…
Let me welcome to my pack…
Bessie Pearl. ❤
P.S. I have put Bea's puppy collar on her and its still too big, geez I'll have to shop for a perfect one just for her...that’s a shame... not
Good night everyone..🌛🌝 ... See MoreSee Less
HAHAHAHA!!!!!....ya know I understand this......when I first saw Vespa it was that horrible picture in the crate....she was not “Vespa” yet, but there is a connection that you just can’t explain....I had 5 dogs then...I was crazy needing another dog, and one in Texas.....well now I have 9....YOU ARE STILL AHEAD OF ME....LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!....welcome home Bessie Pearl!!!!
I began to tear up less than half-way into your sweet tail :), just knowing in my heart, the outcome of this story, Renee...hundreds of us followers of the LSDR & DRR are now breathing a huge sigh of relief at your decision to give sweet Bessie Pearl, her new and loving forever home & we all thank you for that!
To Wes , Julie and Jessica... YES ‼️‼️. You knew what Renee needed ... 😊😊😊. Bessie Pearl just fits right in with all of the others ... and how in the world do you find a spot in the bed with 15 angels ... I only have two and they can root me out of my spot in a heartbeat 💗... 🐶💋
Good job everyone. Congratulations Renee. Now I wonder where her spot will be to eat. The sleeping spot is perfect. There's always room for one more. Welcome home Bessie Pearl.
Excuse us..you have a bookkeeper who is "cooking the book" of numbers. To make you feel better about "failing". 12-18 paragraphs is not justification (you would need a novel). She eats poop? HA! Wait until Travis encourages her to attack the hoses and buckets. And shower stuff! The entertainment is just beginning. Excuse me. I am going to need to add more popcorn and butter for the winter's entertainments from down in Texas!!!!
Thank goodness you finally posted this....My family is starving....My dogs are starving....Laundry is sitting in the dryer....I just couldn't stop watching until I found out her new name....Love you all & welcome Miss Bessie Pearl <3 <3
“...moved like Mooie, shaped like Mooie...”. I dissolved into tears. Wouldn’t every one of us who have lost our doggy soulmate love to stumble upon the one who reminds us of that once in a lifetime love? ❤️❤️❤️
We all knew it. Just like I knew I had to have Little Lucy when I saw her sitting on a rock at the ranch. I think I emailed or texted Laura immediately that I had to have her. Oh yes there is the nagging thing with the HOA that ‘did’ have a rule of 3 animals per house. Well then who is the President of the HOA and what does the CCRs say, ‘ a reasonable number of pets per household’. ... there you go and we in the Dillingham pack love her to death...yay LSDR/DRR. Thank you again Laura Burr Galloway and Renee when I thought I was failing her....she is home where she belongs.
Thats how I adopted my first furry love, Dallas. Went to the pet store for bird food, a local rescue was in there adopting rescues. Our eyes met and that was it. Took her home and loved and spoiled her for 13 years. She was a chow/shepherd mix, was born in the shelter and was 4 months old. You should have seen the hubbys face when I returned home. Oh, and I forgot the bird food!
I just love this story!! I laughed and cried and laughed again while reading it. Enjoy her, Renee. You've added so much happiness to so many dogs in your life; you deserve this little "treat".
Oh stop tryin to justify it already!!! Gosh we all knew it... Just think of Bessie as Pinkie's belated birthday present and you are gifting yourself as a belated birthday present for Bessie! Congrats for the both of ya!
Welcome to the pack Bessie Pearl! Renee their are no failures in life. Bessie has just come home to be with you. You have honored her spirit by naming her after your Aunt.
You didn’t fail - you fell in love with a little ball of fire that spoke to your soul! ❤️🐾❤️🐾—your gut will never mislead you— Miss Bessie Pearl will have great fun with Ed and Benny!!🤣🤣😇😇😇😇😇😇
I think we know why the pull is there...maybe its mooie or maybe-and this is what I think, it's one who you couldn't save before. they are your heart lying in shards at having to leave them so the come back, giving you the peace your heart so desperately needs to keep doing this day after day. welcome home Bessie Pearl!!💖
Thank you for a wonderful bedtime story. Sorry, not sorry that I joined in The Village din—we didn’t know better, just sooner. Bless your ‘good gut’ hard. The world is a better place because of nearly 900 furry “starfishes” who got a second chance.
When you find someone that connects with your soul...it should never be thought of as a failure. You knew, Bessie Pearl knew. Fate was not up to either of you...it just is. ALSO - You have many angels leading babies to you and they know that you will find the perfect homes for them. They never said it couldn't be your home...<3 <3 <3
Same thing with me and my beagle, The Bandit. Interestingly enough he was the runt of the litter with an attitude. The people whose beagle had had puppies were calling him Hercules. But he had that Burt. Beau The Bandit grin.
Welcome Home Bessie Pearl. Congratulations you lil trouble maker, give your momma lots of smiles. She settled right in with EV1 where she knew she was meant to be. So happy for you all. XOXO
I don't mind gathering around and listening to some talking when this is what we are gathering around for and listening for....welcome Bessie Pearl❤️❤️
Welcome home Bessie Pearl! I am so glad you followed your gut Renee! This baby definitely was meant to be with you. It may be a foster fail, but a complete win all the way around. There could not be a better home for this baby than with you <3 😊🎉
Congratulations Renee & Bessie Pearl. You have been a very good sport about this Renee! We all knew, but it just took you a little longer to be sure. You can't ignore the feeling, I felt that the minute I saw you holding that little, huge eared, 10 week old puppy a year ago that y'all named Cheddar, now Monet. I had looked at photo after photo of the rescues and the instant I saw him I knew he was the one. Some things are just meant to be and Bessie Pearl (and my Monet) were two of them. So happy for you both. Happy life together!
God Bless each and every one of you. I am trying to justify bringing in another dog into my pack of only 1 at the moment. You all make it justifiable in my own conscience because my heart keeps telling me it's time and there is the perfect sibling out there to my only furchild Stay with me on this...Isn't it a great life?? 😊
Oh I just love the name Bessie Pearl. Old fashioned names are coming back in style with kiddies so why not dogs too? It's perfect. :-) So glad you made your decision according to what your gut told you. You the rightest & bestest thing ever!!!!!
Congrats to you both we all knew it was just waiting for you to know it too reminds me of my rescue Kiki D (the D stands for Diva) I adopted her 10 yrs ago I would like to say its all been a bed of roses but I'm not a liar lol she was a yr old not hoysebrook or puppy pad broke no socialization at all her and I have come a long way and it took forever but wouldn't change a thing
Tears 😭 of joy . Guts don’t lie . Every baby I listened to my gut about gas turned into my soul animal . They choose us we don’t choose them

A shocking development, no one saw that one coming😉🙄
Hmmmm.....somewhere there is a new Eden running around naked.
And it's kinda funny How the Lord made the bee And the bee made the honey And the honeybee lookin' for a home And they called it honeycomb And they roamed the world and they gathered all Of the honeycomb into one sweet ball And the honeycomb from a million trips Made my baby's lips Oh, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own Got a hank o' hair and a piece o' bone And made a walkin' talkin' Honeycomb Well, Honeycomb, won't you be my baby Well, Honeycomb, be my own
The village needs an adoption announcement/story and picture of her with her new family!!
I really hope her name is Honey....
And HoneyComb shall from now on be known as???? Eden. Welcome to Heaven on Earth precious <3 <3
Well my guess was Renee would not hold out thru the weekend... .
We will see her in bed tonite filling the empty space.💜
The contest ends and everyone is a winner. Especially little Honey Comb. Welcome home little one. Congratulations Renee.🎈💓🎊💗🎈🎊💓🎈.
Hahaha the village knew all along ok Wes did too!😁❤ Congratulations Mrs. Renee, Honeycomb, and the rest of the Eden's!!! ❤🐾🐶
Come on now!!! Where's the update?!? Y'all can't leave your faithful, innocent, non-conniving Village hanging!!! 😂😂😂
Ok; is this Wes’s humor or is Honey Comb really home with a new collar??
Omg omg I’ve been waiting for this all day! Wes Eden better not be messing with us lol
Yay!!! This little girl just won the Eden Lottery❣️❤️🐾
Someone better tell Renee there's a fancy collar missing from the rack right over there ---> :D
Yay! Renee, she is meant to be yours and you never can really have enough Frenchies.
Well, if Renee hasn't made up her mind, it looks like it's been done for here!
Yep! Pressure from the Village and Renee's family and a little nudge from Mooie. Congratulations #honeycomb
I knew this was inevitable when you instructed your crew to keep that girl away from you 😜.
Yay she's honeycomb Eden. Welcome home little one.
YES, I knew Renee would give in! Thanks for helping her, Wes. Welcome to the family little girl. Can’t wait to see the new collar and hear you name, Beautiful!
This makes my heart so happy!!! Can’t wait for the official family pic!!! Great job Wes, Mooie & Village!!!
Omg you did it?! Should we say welcome home??? Let's see the bling girl!
We are all completely shocked😂. Lucky pup and lucky Mama. Can’t wait to hear he name and see the collar.
Maybe the collar will have honeycombs on it!!!! Honey Child.....pretty sure that's her new name

So Laverne is in pretty rough shape, estimated to be around 10 years old or more. Completely bald from most likely living with fleas for a very long time. She's heart worm positive, she has masses all over her breasts, she's currently in heat, and her lungs show a couple of spots that could very well be cancer.
Her chest x-rays have been sent off for the radiologists to read. One step at a time, like all the rest, decisions will be made one step at a time. It will be months before her skin is even healthy enough to be spayed leta lone have a full double mastectomy which would take months of time to recover from as well, and would all of that even be the right thing to do if she has cancer already in her lungs? We don't know the answers we only know the obstacles..
Right now she's gone off to stay with Julie, we have sent all of the girls in heat and all of the girls recovering from surgery to Julie. We have kept the rest at the Ranch, boys that need to be neutered and others that are waiting for their turn for surgeries.
Stay positive Laverne, we will do our best... ... See MoreSee Less
I would love to give her a hospice home for her remaining time. I believe all dogs should have a good, comfortable home for their time on earth. And Schnauzers and Yorkies are my favorites. Hang on Laverne...the Village is here for you!
She has the sweetest face!! Those eyes. Thank big black shiny wet nose!! ❤️🙏🏼❤️
She sure is s doll, she will be beautiful in no time. Enjoy your stay little girl for you deserve the best and that is what you will get.
This breaks my heart. Hang in there little one, they will do all they possibly can for you. I know you must feel better being clean and loved. It is terrible that people let you get in this condition, but you are in good hands now. Prayers and love.🙏🙏💓🙏🙏🙏.
That is the sweetest little face! Her little body has been through hell. Prayers for her. She deserves so much!!!
I think Julie might need a stiff drink dealing with all those cranky girls in heat...lol.
Bless her heart!!! May God put his hands on this sweet sweet girl!! We lift you up in prayer precious and may God hear our prayers for we ask them in the name of his son Lord Jesus Christ...Amen
Poor baby.....lots of love, prayers and positive vibes 🙏🏻🐾❤️
That sweet innocent face just melts my heart. Praying for good news.
One thing we know for sure is that she is loved! She will know love all the rest of her days, however long that may be!!!
Praying for precious Laverne, she deserves the life she was always mean’t to have. Thank the Lord you saved her.
Sweet Laverne, you just need to relax and let the miracle workers do their thing for you. You don't need to worry anymore. Just let yourself be loved, sweetie. You deserve it.
My heart aches for this little one. She reminds me of my baby Lexe who was 13 and cancer took her from me New Years Day. Those eyes say it all and I hope she gets well and can live the rest of her days happy and comfortable
I have loved and lived with schnauzers for 35 years. This baby breaks my heart.
Love, thoughts and prayers for this sweet girl. No matter what the future holds for you, you will know kindness, caring and love the rest of your days. 💖
Poor baby has needed help for a long time. XOXO
Such a sweet, hopeful little face. Good luck, darling girl xx❤️
What a sad little face..I so hope she can get better and have a happy life.💕
Love and prayets sweet precious baby.😘❤
I am so sorry for the sweet girl. Spay and neuter is so important along with monthly heart worm preventative. 💋❤️
That face...Schnauzers have it. Sweet girl, you have just landed in tall cotton.
Aww her face bless her heart!😥 Keep fighting sweetie you're in great hands and you have the village behind you praying!!!🙏❤😘
At this time just being loved is wonderful.
What a seeet little soul. I’m praying she feels better soon and things can be done to help her feel loved.
From one LaVerne to another, prayers sweet baby!

"Why tho...?" ... See MoreSee Less
Honeycomb - will you accept this collar?
“Is this where you keep the fancy collars? “-Honeycomb
I think she’s already decided to keep her and she’s just toying with us !! 😂😂
💭 I’ve never had a home or a mama to love me. I’ve found the home, now where’s my mama? No, not here. Maybe behind this door. Where did you go, woman? Quit hiding from me. 💭
Wes/Travis One of y'all just change her collar & sneak her over to your Mom's house ;) We all know she's in love with her. She just needs another little push <3 <3
Instead of “Yes to the Dress” it’s “Yes to the Collar”❤️
Honeycomb: I say YES to the collar!
'Momma Rene, why don't I have a fancy collar? I'll help you find one!"
Has place already picked out in the kitchen. Ed move over. Honeycomb is here.😃
She knows where she belongs... YOU know where she belongs...
Y’all know it’s happening. Otherwise she would already be back with Julie. #donedeal #getthatgirlacollar
I held Honeycmb today- She’s a doll!!
I didn't realize at first, but she's in the house!
Well I say HELLO MS. HONEY EDEN!! THE VILLAGE HAS SPOKEN!!!
She wants in. She knows where she should be...
You are getting weaker Rene...you will give in sooner or later...
Let me in!!! I belong in the big house with my new brothers and sisters!!!
Just checkin out my new house momma. And I love it.
Because she is cute and she wants a mama!
My brothers and sisters told me to get all dirty because momma Renee really likes it when we do this.
I did not get enough spa time so I thought I'd just " arrange" another appointment! Lol
No one puts Honey in a corner!
Hey!! Where are you all?? I'm alone here & that isn't supposed to be.
Where’s my mama she is saying lol
Renee Eden, resistance is futile!
