With over 10,800 Face Book followers, and my request to have his “Friends” submit their own pictures of their companions, the album continues to grow daily.
Here is a collage of just some of his “Friends”. You can be sure there will be more collages to come.
Many of these precious souls, if not 99% of them are rescues who have found loving forever homes with dedicated “Guardians”

The loss of a beloved companion leaves a massive emptiness, a whole in our hearts that we believe can never be filled. Sometimes we as caregivers need our own Guardian Angels, sometimes it is our lost loved one that comes to us with their own plans for our future. Bruce is a very dear friend, although we have never met face to face, we share a love and commitment for all animals and in that our journeys never cease.
This is an amazing story of a lost loved one doing just that. Bruce’s Guardian Angel made sure that the whole in his heart would be filled.
In Bruce’s own words “And, every morning she goes to little Magnum’s urn on the dining room table and rubs her head on it – she knows,”
SPECIAL UPDATE!!! “….hi remember me from last night…I’m Dusti in case you forgot….”
“Well you see…..the other day I was sitting alone in my kennel just thinking about stuff when much to my surprise my guardian angel came…….he sat on my shoulder and said ‘well Dusti, I’m supposed to be on the other side of the rainbow bridge but there’s something I have to do before I can go…….I left behind the most loving person any pet could ever wish for and I have left a big hole in his heart…one he feels will never mend and so I need you to help heal this wonderful generous heart because without his light in the world…it is a much dimmer place ‘…..and so the plan was set…..in all my shyness I was to come to facebook and my guardian angel would lead him to me…in all his sadness he hasn’t spent much time on facebook but my guardian said he would do his part so long as I did mine ……and it worked. I couldn’t believe my eyes…..it was real…..this wonderful person that I’d heard about around the shelter……everybody whispering and talking that this person was coming to see me……oh my heart was pounding but then ours eyes met and a calm came over me and it happened…..I was giving my heart to a very special person and he was giving me his………his name is Bruce McDonald and think most of you know him from all the blessings he gives each pet posted on this page……how did I get so lucky….I will love you for all my days Bruce……and thank you to my guardian Angel, Magnum…its time for you to play over the rainbow with all the other furbabies that have passed…..I will continue to fill Bruce’s heart and help him heal and I will be here…safe for the rest of my days with Bruce……I couldn’t have asked for more”
All of us wish “Dusti” and her ‘Bruce’ a wonderful and amazing journey in their new life together.
We must also not forget to offer a very special Thank You to a very precious Guardian Angel by the name of “Magnum”.

With so much negativity regarding animal rescue, ie. we cannot save each and every one unfortunately, it is heartwarming to see a success story. Unsung heroes exist among us, Angels, Guardians of ‘The Voiceless” without whom so very many innocent lives would be lost forever. This is one such story below, there are countless others yet to be told. In her own words, with the pictures she has provided: This is Leroy’s Story.
Leroy is a survivor and yes he is truly “Lucky Leroy” joining the loving Lawson family which includes Lulu, Leroy, Fatboy, Diablo, Luther and Lily.
“Leroy’s situation was the most life threatening of the many animals I have helped to rescue over the years and of the six that were meant to be my family forever. He came to us in a strange and serendipitous way as many of them do. A woman, who I did not know very well, approached me at our small town post office and asked if I could give her dog a bath and a haircut. She had heard that I like to help people and their pets. It is really only the pets I want to help, but don’t tell them that.”
”I was very busy at the time (getting married) and said it would have to wait a few days. However, her sister called and said the dog was in rough shape and that someone had been asked to come and SHOOT him. We live on the very isolated island of Haida Gwaii and unfortunately, many people are still pretty backward about whose life has more value. I told hubby to be to hang tight and drove there to see what was happening.”
”It was not good. It was very bad. The woman had been drinking and looked pretty mean and hostile so I just asked where the dog was and tiptoed past her. I found what looked sort of like a dog tied up on their uncovered back porch. He was on a short leash hooked to the wall about two feet up so he could basically only move around in a two foot area. I found out later that he had been tied there for about 3 ½ years. Feeding him had consisted of giving him raw fish heads occasionally. Did she think he had some yearning for rotten sushi?!? He had no water on a very hot day and really didn’t even look like a dog, more like something that had crawled out of a swamp. He was matted from head to toe and both his front and back legs were melded together so he couldn’t walk, just hop around a bit. I cut the leash from the wall, wrapped him in a blanket I’d brought, gave her a few obscene gestures and words, then ran for the car. A bath and a haircut indeed!”
” I took him home and called Dr. Don, our most awesome vet, only to find out he was away for the weekend. It’s a small island and he is the only game in town. I called some rescue friends and started frantically googling. The most urgent needs came first; get him hydrated, warm and a little healthy food into him. I cooked him steak. When he seemed a little stronger, I started cutting away the giant globs of his hair matted with mud, actual sticks and of course, his own urine and feces. He was constantly shaking and his eyes would roll back in his head so we had to take breaks often. When I finally got down to skin, I found oozing sores everywhere, ears filled with mites, bugs and fleas rampant, and blood clots were dropping from his penis. This was a nightmare, but I was determined to give him some happy time, even if it might be short lived.”
”Eventually I got him into a warm bath, medicated what I could, then just held him through the night, giving him bits of food and water when he woke up. This had taken the whole day and much of the night so I eventually dozed off for a bit. When I woke up, he was gone! I yelled for my husband to tell me where the dog was. I feared the worst.”
Boy, had I underestimated this little guy’s strength and character. Where did I find him? Chasing my twin rescued kitty cats, Fatboy & Diablo.
He and Lulu, my first wee rescued mutt were CHASING each other.
He was stealing toys from her box, running around with them in his mouth as though he’d just struck gold! I asked my husband what we should call him and he said, Lucky. Lucky Leroy it is, the newest member of he Lawson family.
Not the last though…
Luther and Princess Lily were soon to follow.
The saga continues….
Thank You Leanne Lawson for this wonderful story.
You are one of the ‘Silent Army’, Guardians of the Voiceless

First I wish to thank all of the amazing people who took such a major part in enabling me to rescue and bring to my home this amazing boy. Those of you who took the time to email the Mayor of Hay River, those of you who signed the online petition.
Special thanks to Michelle Nadon founder of Cause 4 Paws (C4P) located in Ontario, to Sarah West founder of the Canadian Federation for Animal Welfare (CFAW), Jean McCarthy a dear friend in Ontario and Lawrence Pinksy who is so busy raising needed funding to help cover Loki’s vetting and other needs.
To list each and everyone by name is an impossible task so I will not even make that attempt.
As some may already know, Eldad Hagar founder of Hope for Paws based in L.A., California, was contacted by both Jean and Sarah, who in turn gave me a call at home, with just days left before the deadline of September 30th. I called Eldad and we spoke at length, formulating a plan for LOKI’s capture.
The backbone in this plan was a wonderful lady, Bonnie Crowther who lives down the street from me, and who also ensured Loki received proper nourishment during his wild days. She and her beautiful dog China walk every day and Loki would always accompany them. LOKI spent much of his time at Bonnie C’s, laying in the company of China.
Following Eldad’s instructions, Bonnie C began coaxing LOKI to eat inside her garage. Eldad had told us if he would eat inside for two days in a row thenEldad would catch the next plane to get here. Well Bonnie succeeded and Loki became comfortable eating in her garage.
Eldad arrived at the Hay River Airport at 2:45 pm on Thursday September 26th. Meeting him at the airport, he followed me to my home, checked out the dog run, decided it was not strong enough and I took him over to Bonnie C’s to see Loki and to speak with her. Eldad had checked out Loki’s FB page prior so had a good idea as to the size of Loki. He and I then went about locating and purchasing additional chain link reinforcement for the dog run. It now has 2 and three layers of added chain link.
After having gotten Eldad checked into the hotel where I work as the Financial Administrator, and getting a good meal into us both, Eldad retired to his room and I headed home. Eldad’s parting comment was to the effect of would it not be great if we got him tonight. With the deadline date to get Loki captures only 4 days away…well…
I had just crawled into my own bed, relieved that Eldad was here when I got the phone call. Bonnie C had been able to close her garage door and trap Loki inside. Rushing over to her place, my heart was pounding and I was trembling. Eldad was already there and together he and I entered her garage. LOKI being terrified had reacted in fear and was now sitting on top of Bonnie’s freezer. We entered slowly and I was able to calm him with my voice and humming, I sat on the garage floor with Eldad standing behind me. Gradually as I continued in a soft voice, Eldad took baby steps and approached LOKI eventually being able to sit on the freezer next to Loki. Using the end of the catch pole(no drugs or catch pole were used) wrapped in a towel, Eldad placed it behind his back and was able to ease the towel to Loki’s side and began touching him gently with it. I was shocked. Within a few moments Eldad told me he was petting Loki with his bare hand.
Myself having never been allowed to pet Loki, I immediately asked “What does his coat feel like”, the answer “amazing so soft”. I slowly approached Loki and for the first time in the three and a half years we have journeyed together, I was able to hold him. I cannot describe the incredible joy.
Eldad slept on top of the freezer that first night, with LOKI up there with him. Friday the next day, I slept on the garage floor with Loki in my arms the whole day while Bonnie C and Eldad began re-inforcing the run. Eldad took over sleeping with Loki in her garage that night.
More work was done on the dog run all day Saturday, and without Bonnie C, none of this would have been possible. This amazing and dedicated woman worked like a construction guy, lacing the additional chain link purcahsedd by Eldad, to the existing, going over everything with an eagles eye to ensure that Loki would not only be safe but also unable to escape. Eldad purchased the additional chain link to wrap around the run and I purchased the chain link flooring. Eldad also added to Loki’s comfy bed linens (4 more comforters and another fleecy blanket).
Saturday evening we planned to relocate Loki to my home and the dog run. Remarkably our fears of getting him into the large borrowed transport carrier was ill founded. Loki calming walked into the carrier on his own. We loaded him into Bonnie C’s truck and in the darkness of night got him into the dog run. That night and Sunday I had the immeasurable pleasure of the first sound sleep I have had since Loki had been given a basic death sentence if I did not get him secured and safe at my home. Of course I slept in the dog run, Loki, calmly curled up in my arms, both of us safe and sound.
Both Bonnie C and her husband Roy came back on Sunday and Roy had picked up some gravel and earth for one portion of the run near the door so that Loki can do his business. Bonnie also brought a bale of straw as well. Additional run reinforcements were made. Eldad came over and spent time working on the run as well as spending time with Loki.
Monday morning Eldad again came by before he headed out to catch his flight out of Hay River. I will be forever grateful that he chose to be a part of Loki’s journey.
Bonnie C comes over regularly to spend time with her beloved Loki, and of course the work that I and Loki are doing now in this newest chapter of our journey together, is slow, calm and steady. I will not push him, all must be on his terms, I will not see his spirit broken, nor will I do anything to lose his respect and his trust. Sleeping outside with him is all part of the growing bond that we share. He has made friends with my own dog Hemi, who has a remarkable calming affect on Loki, which is easing the transition.
I was so proud of Loki yesterday, his second venture outside the run, he did so well calmly exploring the backyard he knows so well. Tethered securely and also fashioned to me physically, he enjoyed the ability to explore and relax outside the run, his head uplifted watching the birds fly overhead, smelling the plants and investigating all manner of scents. Not yet leashed trained, but learning, I am hopeful that soon I will be able to bring him inside the house as well as taking him for long walks like we used to take together.
Patience on both our parts, silent communication and most of all mutual respect and trust will see Loki transition slowly and without additional emotional trauma. His remarkable eyes fixed on mine tell a story so intense it is not to be believed unless personally experienced. The trust and strong bond we have shared for over three years continues to grow.
LOKI is living proof that the impossible can be made possible. He has touched the hearts of total strangers around the world, uniting all for the sole purpose of saving his life. He proves that when we all work together miracles do happen.
It is my hope that Loki’s continuing story will inspire others to step up and go beyond what appears to be limits and impossible situations, to stick with it, to never give up.

You have followed our journey since October 2010 and this is another long cold winter for us both, you also know that I will never give up with him. There are so many times, that he has come to me, in my own time of need, given me the needed strength when my own is waning, when it became all too much to bare witness to the continued horrors, to cross post and even update this Blog properly with both good news and bad….
Watching him leap high into the air to land in deep snow banks, rolling on his sides and back, racing across the frozen snow….rejoicing in his freedom and in just being alive rekindles my flame to carry on the needed fight for animals everywhere. As one follower remarked in a comment to me on Loki’s FB page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Friends-of-LOKI-Sole-Survivor/188340937903082?ref=ts&fref=ts when looking into his beautiful gentle eyes it is as if one is falling gently and becoming one in spirit with him.
Going through my long list of incoming emails, I was sent this particular one, by a very close and dear friend of mine who has been involved in animal rescue and advocacy for an extremely long time.
I honestly believe that there are many of us out there in the real world that can say that at one time or another we have experienced the devastating result of the endless hours dedicated to saving, even just one life that has miraculously survived the rages of human indifference, lack of compassion and total disregard for life.
The extreme cost to our own personal lives encompasses many facets. Loss of time with family, the use of personal finances to ensure rescue and proper care, loss of quality time with our own companion animals and of course the emotional and physical costs we must endure to continue our necessary work.
For all of you who continue the fight..be it hands on rescue, be it in your own homes, in shelters, at your computer day after day getting the message out there, signing petitions, lobbying for positive legislative changes to existing antiquated Animal Protection Laws, public speaking on the issues, as well as being a source of strength and support to each other…..I THANK ALL OF YOU..for your continued dedication and commitment.
We all are the Champions who clean up the mess left behind. We SAVE LIVES!!!
Intro to Activist Burnout & How to Avoid It.
What is Activist Burnout? ‘Activist Burnout’ broadly encompasses all personally negative mental, emotional, physical, and behavioural changes caused by one’s activism, that in result hinder the effectiveness of that activist. It is common for activists to suffer from varying degrees of activist burnout, with a variety of symptoms, throughout their lifetime. One of the most important things activists can learn is how to use personalized coping methods to deal with stresses. Thankfully it is possible to overcome and avoid activist burnout and ensure a well balanced and successful life full of activism.
Why do Activists Experience Burnout? ‘Activist Burnout’ will have different causes depending on the individual and their environment. In general, activist burnout is due to the inability of an activist to effectively deal with the many stresses associated with their activist work. Activists should not feel at fault for their burnout. It is understandable why so many activists have difficulty dealing with their stresses when there is little and often no support for activists. Reasons Activists are Unable to Effectively Deal with Stresses: ● Workload ● Poor Habits(procrastination, inefficiencies, etc..) ● Inexperience ● No Mentors ● No Support Network ● Secondary Traumatic Stress Disorder/Compassion Fatigue ● Weltschmerz(pain for an unideal world)
What are the Symptoms of Activist Burnout? The stresses activists have to deal with on a day to day basis will affect everyone differently. Mental/emotional, physical, and behavioural symptoms are all interrelated and can exacerbate each other. This means that to resolve one symptom often means dealing with several. The following is a non-exhaustive list including many common symptoms of activist burnout: ● Mental/Emotional Symptoms - ● Irritability ● Anxiety ● Depression ● Sense of Hopelessness/Helplessness ● Cynicism ● Lack of Motivation ● Difficulty Enjoying Life/Activities Once Enjoyed
There is a tendency for activists to remain silent about any painful emotions they may have. Activists will justify this for the reason that while they may be sad, angry and upset “it is nothing compared to the suffering of the ones they are trying to help”. While this reasoning is understandable, unwillingness to share and work through painful emotions will only worsen them. ● Behavioural Symptoms – ● Reclusive Behaviour/Isolation from Once Positive Relationships ● Disregard for Social Responsibilities ● Unwillingness to Accept Help ● Lack of Effectiveness ● Inability/Unwillingness to Fulfill Responsibilities ● Decreased Self-care(personal appearance, hygiene, etc..) ● Inability to Remain Focused ● Difficulty Making Decisions
Behavioural changes are inevitable for activists experiencing burnout. These changes are most obvious to a third party, and often misunderstood as unpleasant character flaws. The negative changes in behaviour can isolate activists, and deter new people from joining the organization or movement.
● Physical Symptoms – ● Fatigue ● Trouble Sleeping ● Weight Loss/Weight Gain ● Decreased Immunity ● General Lack of Physical Fitness While not always associated with activist burnout, the physical aspects are incredibly important to deal with because physical weakness/ailments only exacerbate the taxing mental effects caused by activist stresses. Maintaining physical fitness will help to improve quality of life and alleviate activist burnout.
What Can Activists do to Avoid or Overcome Burnout?
As activists it is important to spot the warning signs that might indicate we or our fellow activists are becoming burnt out. Whether warning signs are apparent or not, it is important for all activists to take proactive measures to ensure they effectively deal with any stresses they might have
. It is essential for all activists to have the ability to use stress management techniques in order to overcome and proactively avoid activist burnout.
The following are a few of the many ways to effectively cope with activist stress: ● Learn to prioritize better and focus on priorities ● Destress though healthy activities(physical exercise, music, reading, etc..) ● Maintain healthy eating, sleeping, and exercise habits *this is crucial\
● Develop better work habits ● Try to focus on tasks you are good at and enjoy doing ● Use a journal ● Attain support groups you can rely on and talk about your stresses with ● Maintain friendly relationships with fellow activists and non-activists ● Find a mentor/mentor a less experienced activist ● Understand that activist work is a lifelong process ● Make your work more enjoyable/fun ● Moderate to Intense physical exercise *great fix for depression ● Reduce workload but improve quality of work being completed ● Understand there are highs and lows of initiatives/organizations/movements ● Maintain activities outside activism that fulfill you ● Resolve negative thought patterns and never discount the worthwhile work you do ●
Reward yourself and others for the important work they do ● Examine how your activist work affects your attitudes and behaviours ● Understand “successes” and “failures” are not dichotomous, every initiative has some degree of success. The real failure occurs when activists become inactive. ● Understand change is possible (thinking otherwise is internalized repression)
● Realize feeling sad and angry about the world is normal and justified ● Maintain a sense of humor ● Therapy has a tremendous potential to help individuals struggling to effectively manage their stress. Therapy should be sought if symptoms are severe.

As pet owners we can deeply care about our animal companions. Pet Food Recalls not only shock us, as we have trusted the manufacturers, but these Recall Alerts also instill terror in our hearts.
This year has seen so many recalls it is unbelievable.
A dear friend sent me the following expose and I suggest that time be spent reading it. I for one am going to continue to make meals (supplemented with required vitamins) for my own pets.
Recent pet food recall:

Prior to putting together new posts about what is going on with the Campaign to Save America’s Wild Horses and posting news from the Equine Welfare Alliance, Canadian Horse Defense Coalition and others…..I thought you might enjoy an update about this gentle free spirit.
Spring has finally arrived, yet the weather of course remains unpredictable. While the snow is melting, traversing across the ravine and getting to LOKI is often very difficult. not only for myself but he has often found it difficult to get to me as I approach him. Once hard packed snow allowing you to walk on top of it, has given way to melting snow beneath meaning that one solid step too often leads to a precarious step that sinks you to your hip.
LOKI’s favorite perches, once snow covered, now are becoming barren of the white stuff, meaning that it is now dangerous for him and for myself to climb. The chance of a leg being tangled and caught in the tree branches or impaling oneself should support give way is very real. My concern is more for him, than myself, as I can readily get medical attention. First picture was taken April 4th during a mild week of melting snow.
When I first came upon him he was stretched on his side snoozing, far too comfortable to come to me so I made my attempts to get to him.
Unfortunately for us both, the added snowfall, made it almost impossible, with me sinking far to deep and he in his attempts to reach me, becoming buried up to his neck. We both conceded to Mother Nature, I got as close to him as possible and left his fresh dinner on the most solid area I could find.
Our faithful companion “Mr. Raven” joined us and watched, likely with great amusement, as I slowly crawled on my stomach backwards off the mound before I could gain solid footing and make my way through the deep snow back to the road about 200 yards away.
Yes, I had brought enough for “Mr. Raven” to have a good meal as well, LOKI shares with his unusual friend and playmate.
You can see LOKI directly behind “Mr. Raven” in the second picture.
Now back on the road, I was happy to see both LOKI and his buddy enjoying their evening meal. Mission accomplished.
New videos will be uploaded today, however, unfortunately due to the strong winds that day, it is suggested that you alternate your sound levels when viewing.
Hope you all enjoy these updates on this most amazing boy, his life and my time with him.
