Happy Ending: Dusty Rhodes

“I’ve wined and dined with kings and queens and slept in alleys eating pork and beans.”- Dusty Rhodes


Remember that sad, little shepherd mix my friends found recently on the hard streets of Kansas City?

Well, he’s doing much better now.

In fact, you might say little Dusty Rhodes, named for a pro wrestler, is living “The American Dream.”

Because my friends were able to get around a dog weight restriction at their apartment, Dusty Rhodes came home with them.

He now has a mom, a dad and a tiny beagle sister named Daphne.

No more sleeping at the park for this guy!


Congratulations, Dusty!

Unfortunately, the list of dogs in need is neverending.

Another friend found an equally adorable shepherd mix with no collar, tags or microchip around 73rd and Harrison streets in the Waldo neighborhood of Kansas City yesterday.

Please share her photo if you have Kansas City contacts so that we may track down an owner before the dog is turned over to animal control.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
