Wish I could foster this trio of pups!
FOSTERS NEEDED for rescue! All three dogs were surrendered to Dallas Animal Services and Adoption Center because the owner had too many dogs and couldn't take care of them. They are sweet but not well socialized, we believe they were all outside dogs. If you can help rescue one (or two, or three) of these cuties, please fill out a #foster application here:

A821485: Barbas, male, Terrier, 2 years old. He is very friendly and sweet. Took a treat, allowed pets, but he needs a grooming very badly!

A821416: Candy, female, Corgi/Terrier mix, 1 year old. Candy is very fearful, ran to the back of her cage, wouldn't come up for treats or pets. She needs to get out of the scary shelter environment to shine!

A821484: Pitufina, female, Terrier mix, 2 years old. Fearful, but friendly. She came up to the bars for a treat, and accepted pets. White fluffy!

If you can help any of these 3, please let us know!

In case anyone didn't know my story. I was diagnosed with stage 3B lung cancer back in 2007, and was in remission for about 6-7 years.. then in October, 4 months after getting married, I got sick again - had surgery to remove to lung cancer tumors that had popped-up in my head. Had radiation and doubled my cancer medicine. I started having headaches last week and vision problems, and I have two NEW tumors, so now I"m doing 15 treatments of "whole brain radiation" (WBRT). Then we'll see about possibly adding medication or doing a medical trial in 2 weeks. Have no idea.. it's pretty frigging scary. I planned on doing this 5K in May jogging, but now I'll probably be walking. Want to join me team or donate? It's in Dallas on May 3rd for the Bonnie J. Addario Foundation ( - just click here:

They don't show a single BRA in this lingerie ad. Get a kleenex handy!
+278-94    It’s not often that a lingerie commercial will leave you a blubbering mess, so take note of this new ad from Asian lingerie manufacturer Wacoal. The “My Beautiful Woman” ad is in Thai, but the subtitles tell the tale clearly enough. And, remarkably, it’s based on a true story. Jane is a young mother – too young, in her peers’ eyes. Word is she had a baby with her “sugar daddy” at the age of 18. Every day …
