Dog Stories and Poetry
by Patricia Walter
I just plain love dogs.
I have always had between four to sixteen dogs most of my
adult life. I wanted to be able to help dogs
and decided to start volunteering at our local shelter, the
Humane Society of the Ohio Valley,
in 2001. I started by designing a website for them and
taking photos. It is difficult to visit any shelter without
falling in love with the many wonderful animals that live
there. We adopted Molly the Border Collie the second day
that I visited. I was the Assistant Manager for
several months in 2005 and have experienced the best and the
worst of people who claim to love animals. I have also
worked with many rescue groups, visited a number of other
shelters and transported dogs to rescue. During all
this time, I have learned a lot about dogs and people.
I wanted a website to share the stories about the dogs I
have met and lived with. I hope you enjoy the stories and
poetry and will visit often.

Shares with no obligation - joy and
Works without questions - hard and
Lives without regret - for the joy of the
