Portrait of Xander

I met Xander at Pets R Us in Palmdale, CA, USA; he was going to transport a dog I rescued down to Orange County, CA, USA. This was the first time I had met Xander. I had been in rescue for well over 5 years, and I found Xander professional and wonderful as a rescuer.

Xander worked with the ASPCA in LA County, CA USA, and did transport for various rescues. He also had his own rescue,  Rescue Mafia LA. As of this post, they were working on their 501(c)3. I wished them luck on that. It’s hard to get.

Xander was single, and lived with his dogs, Ariel, an 11 year old long-haired Chihuahua, Shadow, a5 year old German Shepard and  Kicki a short haired black domestic cat, the baby of the house.

On the picture, his hat says “Dog Father” which reminded me of the joke “What did the dyslexic, atheist insomniac do?” He stayed up all night wondering if there was a  Dog.

What was Xander looking at? Maybe he was contemplating the universe, thinking how horribly people treat animals, or just annoyed at me for making him take so many poses.

Portrait of Chris

Chris was a Piitbull lover. His wife had an adult Pitbull, who became his through marriage.  After living with him for just a short time, Chris grew to adore him. Unfortunately, he was 11-12 years old, sick and passed away.

After several years, Chris and his wife were ready for a new “son,” Chunker, who was about 11 weeks old as this post was published. He still had a touch of puppy breath.

I met Chris and Chunker at Pets R Us in Palmdale, California, USA. Chunker needed some more vaccines, as is the way with puppies.

Chris was friendly, cheerful and pleasant. He loved his wife and his dog and despised cancer and leukemia.

Here are pictures of Chris with Chunker and one of Chunker alone. Even though this project was intended to showcase only humans, Chunker was such a cute, sweet puppy, I could not resist posting a dog photo.
