I've spent the whole day cleaning house, stripping dog beds, and human beds, laundry, laundry, laundry. Scrubbing floors and waxing them.
Big boy here (the most handsome dog in the world) has been wearing a wrap every single day which he lifts his leg in and pees in it all the time.
Because of this he's stinky all the time, so two mornings in a row now when I take a shower I opened the door, and said hey you handsome, why don't you come in here so I can scrub you clean?
What does he do? He walks in the darn shower and loves every minute of the scrubbing and toweling.
So today I decide I'm not going to put the wrap on you and keep my eyes peeled on him to see if he attempts to lift his leg.
What does he do the whole day?
He does nothing but go out the dog door and pee outside like he's been just a saint the whole time.
When in fact he would pee in his wrap every 30 minutes so what the heck does that mean? It means he likes peeing in his pants so that means he ain't getting no pants no more. At the very end of the day I caught him hiking his leg in the house and we had another come to Jesus moment where it was described very clearly that this behavior in no uncertain terms would be tolerated in any way.
He said he understood and it would never happen again. I'm not sure I believe him but he's so darn good looking that I'm just going to accept that answer and kiss him right on that shiny lip of his. 😃 ... See MoreSee Less
This just made me grin from ear to ear. I can just see him in your shower, too much fun. 😘😘😘 from Treasure, Moxie and myself for Count
Oh Renee, I just spit my water everywhere! You are so comically graphic! I'm just wondering how ED is going to retaliate for you allowing big boy IN THE SHOWER with all them bottles!!!
Renee, I've never met you, but I know you have to be an angel. Those dogs know it too. No one can tell it like you do. We all think you should write a book. Thanks for all you do for them. Your posts bring me smiles and also tears. I love every minute of it. This world needs more people like all of you at the Ranch. Bless you.
I so enjoyed the update on this handsome sweet boy. THANK YOU SO much for the love and patience you have for him. HE so deserves it and so glad he finally has it and you in his life. That face!!!! Wondering how Meg is doing??
I was thinking of throwing my hat in the ring for this guy, but my bet is he's not going anywhere and is going to fill that big empty spot left by sarge.
I had a cat that would CRY to go out every time it rained - she loved getting toweled off and no sooner was she dried she'd howl to go out again! He is no dummy - He loves his shower time!
Oh my! That made me laugh out loud 🤣 He's a smart and wily Count indeed!! But with a face like that, I do believe he just may find his way back into your shower for a little rubbing and toweling ❤❤
<3 Baby Basie trying to make you happy!! hehe...Daily showers and scrubs...life is good!! Doomed I tell you, Renee, you are doomed!! <3
That's why God made you in charge of all the four legged dogs that are in such need of love & guidance! You are the Mom!❤😘🙏🏻
Ok so there is on thing about Bordeaux's they are very very smart! If you tell he can pee in a diaper he will pee in it all day long! If you take it away and make him be responsible ,he will learn.
Omg I love the shower part...w our first Frenchie Fifi my dad would take a shower and when he was done would hav kept the door shut if no one else was home and pull her in for a scrubbing or I'd push her in the curtain. He was such a sucker for that lil bulldog; that was his baby and she could do no wrong.
Oh how I'd love to hear one of your talks, while standing quietly in the corner watching the expression on the pups face and yours!!! 🐾❤️
If he pees in his pants he gets to shower with you and get scrubbed. He's no dummy! 😂
Maybe he needs a Thundershirt LOL. Then the rest of him will feel all tightly squeezed and he can let the rest of him hang out hahaha!!!
I'll bet Edna is fit to be tied!! First he noses in HER pantry and now is actually IN the shower with all those trash-talking bottles.....what is this world coming to? However, he IS irresistible....just a big old hunk of love....
So , he knows not to do his business in his pants, but he may have been frustrated about wearing it, and wondering if his plumbing was stopped for life, just saying the boy knew his plumbing was stopped up...so he was trying to see if he could pee ...jus' in case the wrap would be permanent. lolo.
Oh my dear god he is precious! Precious to a fault. I love the Count❤️❤️❤️❤️
Sounds like like he is trying..... just some more loving work and hopefully he will get the idea.... <3
He had YOU figured out long before you had HIM figured out, momma...he was just fakin' ya! 😂
Renee, I'm not sure if you are a genius or a sucker. Time will tell and we will be paying attention.
I think tomorrow will be an even better day! Good job beautiful boy
Jeez, so NOW that that diaper is off, I can go pee outside!!!!
Those eye's.....that nose....that lip....and his wiskers....got me feeling some kind of way!!❤🐶🐶🐕
Be free diaper boy!! Be free!! (And yet the commercial of the kids singing "I'm a big kid now" plays in my head!!)
Who knows what he thinks? I guess if he is wearing something he wants to pee on it.

The story of this girl has been going on for quite some time now. Paige Dowdy Santell had contacted us about her a month or so ago with what has been happening, this is what she told us:
"About a year ago I was called about a DDB female under a house starving etc.. she is friendly but scared of cars.
So here comes animal control they pick her up, she has a microchip and they contact an owner. He is an elderly man that is very frail and suspected of being a little senile, but he comes to pick her up. So a few months go by she is out again, once again she is picked up and reclaimed. This has occurred 7 times with her being found dehydrated hiding under a person house because she's afraid of cars.
She is spayed but skinny and covered in fleas. She has been living on the streets for a while now. She's a pretty dog probably 4 or 5 years old".
She told us If the owner does not come this time they will let rescue have her, and Paige asked if we have any room for her?
We told her if you can get her then we will take her, but once again he did come for her so the saga continued.
Last week Paige contacted us again and said she had been picked up again as a stray and was hoping he wouldn't come for her because of the fines associated with her, and this time luckily he didn't and she was secured today in rescue and we will be taking her in.
Her name was Allie but as you guys know when they have a life that's not so good we will change their name, because I know what her name is we stick with a name that rhymes so with that I would like to welcome to Dog Ranch Rescue Sally.
I'm sorry it took so long but at least you're now safe and will be fed and cared for. ... See MoreSee Less
I am feel so sad for the Gentleman, :-( sounds like he was trying to do the right thing. But hopefully now Miss Sally on to a life where she will be looked after and and an better/secure yard to play in. <3
This is a legitimately genuine question not meant to cause debate and is one I'm guessing the answer is 'it depends'. But how is it that when dogs are found on the loose in bad condition that their owners are allowed to have them back? Obviously a beloved well cared for pet should go back, but when it is clear that a dog is dehydrated, malnourished, flea-ridden etc, it's not the best for that animal.
I wanted to answer a question on Sally. In Texas dogs sadly are considered property. Some animal controls have three strikes of a dog being out then they don't return. She was out so many times people on their own would return her to the owner. Animal control every time they picked her up they would require the owner to taker her to vet fines etc.. if they paid the dog was returned. I personally have been aware of her for a long time. But we can't just take her all legal obligations had to be complied with. Thankfully they have and she is now headed to paradise. I don't have judgment on her owner just peace. But she was on the streets so long and it's truly a miracle she made it that long.
This is such a sad story with a happy ending for Sally. I'm genuinely sorry for the older man with senility issues. It's so scary and hard for everyone. I'm glad Sally is going to be with someone who can care for her every day.
Mustang Sally!!!!l I took a little literary license with her name. But don't you worry, ladybug, life is going to be amazing now.
Sounds like her previous owner loved her and wanted her, but just could no longer care for her. Glad she fell into the hands of LSDR!
Hi Sally welcome to safety, care, love and no more streets ! You will be fine in time ! You should have been given up the first time or at least the second but now it is right !
Welcome Sally, to the ranch, good food, good company, good sleeping beds, two good hoooman brothers and wonderful Momma.
Sally darlin you don't know what is coming Warm beds baths cuddles and lots of food And when Ed shows you the cupboard it will be 7th heaven 👋🏼👋🏼😂😂
How funny, my "Allie" is also renamed Sally. It was the Charlie Brown theme I had going with my chi pups...Lucy, Marcy, Sally.....
Sally, you are in the best hands now. Your previous owner loved you but he couldn't take care of you and now you will be where you can get all the care, love and food you need.
Okay, I have a question going in a different direction: if the old gentleman didn't come for her, this time, did anybody bother to do a welfare-check on him?
Much Love for Sally. Welcome to where you are safe and Loved.
Welcome to the ranch. Girlfriend you just hit the lottery!!!
Ive had EM's and adore them, but now I see a Big Red Bear in my future I think!
I'm happy Paige Dowdy Santell finally got her out of that situation. Now she will have a good life.
why would animal control continue to release this obviously emaciated dog to the same person over and over? so sad.
Yes yes yes yes yes ‼️🐶💋. Mustang Sally , Welcome to heaven on earth ‼️‼️‼️
Sally... my heart dog was my Lab Sally!!! Sally Sally Sal Sal. Welcome to love beautiful precious gurl❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I'm sad for the man but I'm thankful Sally is in better hands.
Another one hit the furbaby jackpot! Welcome to the good life Sally!!
Where's that donation button again 🔍??? Pretty sure the DDB magnets need it... 👛👜 Welcome Sally!!💞
I hope that someone can also help the old man, it sound like he is in need of some assistance as well.
Safe, at last and a happy life for Miss Sally. Thank you for taking care of her.
Sad...and glad. Feel bad for the old man and so sad for this animal. Now, Sally will be cared for and loved.

We were so sad to hear that the very last pup who we scrambled to name White after her very late arrival yesterday passed away this morning. She was the runt and she just wasn't well enough or strong enough to make it.
We are left with Snow and her 7 Dwarves and little White will be cremated and laid to rest with big Larry under his memorial tree holding all other babies that have passed.
Puppy raising is tough and loss is common, we are just grateful she wasn't out in the junkyard giving birth to them because I'm certain none of them would have survived.
Rest in peace little White... ... See MoreSee Less
I went over the falls in a barrel when I saw this last pic of them together this morning. I'm glad she got to kiss her mama goodbye before she went back to sleep - so Moo could go find her and take her over the Rainbow Bridge without getting lost. Nothing worse than dead puppies💔 - Wes
Mooie greeted her at the bridge and is kissing her sweet face for all of us in Heaven. Rest In Peace, sweet girl! I'm so thankful you left this world loved!
RIP baby and pass over the Bridge and be that puppy you could not be here and watch over the people who tried to help you and look down to see how good your Mom is doing and your siblings ! You were loved and you will continue to love them !
Needless to say I am in tears over the loss of little White. You are so right when you say if Esther hadn't been rescued probably none of them would have survived. RIP sweet little one.
Rest in Peace Sweet White!! You weren't with us for long, but the village loved you with all of our hearts!! Mooie will love and take care of you now!
She will have her paws full with the ones left. Bless her heart. Thank you for having a big heart for living things and this special momma dog.
So sorry for this loss. So thankful that all the others survived. It's life, and life isn't always easy, but we KNOW that all that could be done was done.
God bless her little heart. Mama's first labor probably to be expected but still heart breaking especially for foster mom. RIP White.
Baby White, I'm so sorry you didn't get to experience life on this side of the Bridge, but you were loved so much. You can rest knowing that your mom and siblings will all be loved and cared for, until they join you - it will be a long time for them, but you will be busy playing with all the other puppies who are waiting and you will not be lonely. Sweet baby.
Yes....sweet Mooie.....you do indeed have a baby on the way that needs you💔💔
Aw and yes in her short little life she know only love and compassion
Over the Rainbow Bridge sweet White, until you meet again! :(
In the space of a few hours there would have been 8 more babies trying to survive the hell of that place. Thank goodness they are safe
She only knew love before she crossed the bridge. RIP, lil White. ❤️🐾🌈
Make room Momma Moo ... you have an angel on the way ...
I'm sorry Esther for your loss of White. Sending you and your 7 remaining pups healthy energy.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwww💔 yes, she's with our precious Mooie now...
Rest in Peace, sweet Snow, you will be well taken care of by Larry, Stretch those little wings out and fly.
RIP little baby girl. But rest knowing that your mama, sister and brothers are going to have great lives now.
So sad...I always root for the runt...I'm sorry she didn't make it 😢
Ok this one made me cry but love knowing these pups were born in a warm, loving home.
You do the best you can but sometimes you just have to say, "Over to you God". Bless you and your fur babies forever.
Tears for this sweet soul and what might have been, should have been. xo
She only knew love her whole little life. Sweet baby.
That is a precious picture. Rest in peace, baby White. You are loved.

Our own little foster Olive Oyl the sweetest girl in all the land went home with her new mama today.
Corrie Watson from Fort Worth TX and her dog Cami came to pick up their new family member and continue with all the months of HW treatment that she will still need all while in the hands of her forever mama.
We told her what a special girl she is and how she likes to soak in the pond so she will get her a little kiddie pool for her to continue what she loves.
We're going to miss her, she's come a long way from being tossed aside by a mill owner because she miscarried all of her babies.
Don't look back sweet girl, the world is your oyster.
Happy life little girl <3 ... See MoreSee Less

Cami looks like a sweet, happy baby herself and Olive Oyl is going to have so much fun with her new sibling and family. And she's going to have her own pool! I'm very happy for her, and her new family.
Could not help but notice the coloring of the dog down front, just look at the white on the forepaws extending the white on the inside of her legs and the nice white blaze on her face, how it has two points...nice coloring, she has a really great paint job.....
She looks so happy, so sorry about having all the health issues, but she has such a shining face and smile, she if for sure one of the most darling of all your rescues.
