A Happy Ending for Red Hook's Revere Sugar Dogs
Just wanted to let you know that the dog in the video....Mama Dolce is now living in PA and is safe along with the other dog Big Mama.In a world that sometimes feels like it's full of crap on a daily basis, this story warms GL's heart immensely (except for the missing Revere Dog, who we hope has a happy ending too). If you have photos of the Revere Dogs (the one at left shows them on the Revere property behind the main gate) or want to help defray the cost of care for the rescued ones, you can contact Ms. Zucker at harithspi (at) earthlink (dot) net. A Revere Dog good karma bonus awaits.
Until about two months ago there were three dogs (they had been together for years.) One has totally disappeared. I kind of think she may be around but is very very shy. She is all brown with a large scar on her back. (The dog in the middle in the second photo below.) The dog in the video, Mama Dolce, and the other were very close.....so it is strange that she disappeared. Here is a photo of them from the last day it snowed in March. They were happy, just not safe (because of changes in the area). The second one is of the two of them in PA. Don't worry they are not constantly caged. They just go in the cages doors stay open.
I so appreciate the fact that everyone who knew about the dogs kept
quiet about them. If there are any photographers that have photos of the dogs, I would love to get in touch and maybe do something with them. I of course have tons and tons of them..video as well. I've been taking care of them for years and took all their pups three years ago. They all have fantastic homes, we have a birthday party every year. The father of all the pups (and I guess husband/boyfriend of these three) lives in Syracuse with a truck driver who brings stuff to Ahava. (Located at Beard and Van Brunt Street.) Many, many people have taken care of these dogs over the years. I would love to do a show of a the photos of the dogs taken over the years.
PS The dogs both have heartworm. Their treatment has been quite expensive, and I am paying to board them in PA (minimal) but it adds up. If by some small chance anyone wants to help contribute to their care, they can contact me...or I am pretty sure there is still a collection box at Bait and Tackle. Mama Dolce is the mother of Edie's (one of B&T owners) dog Dolce.
