Such a sweet heart. Sat in the backseat the whole way home, to her foster home. AWL is happy that she got a new start in life and thank you Brian for bringing her home.

Watching my daughter ride is a true pleasure. And today, she trotted for her first time. Bouncing up and down, her helmet was flopping around, and she just giggled!
These two boys --on the picture-- were holding their mothers horse while she was helping another lady, that touched my heart.
But it was difficult watching one boy riding his horse in the riding arena, in the same group as my daughter.
He did n’t use his feet to increase the speed of the horse. He did n’t use his seat to hold an even tempo together with his horse. He used his whip on the horse the whole time.
The instructor did n’t say anything, nor his father whom stood watching with an unexpressed face. The roller coast of emotions.....

We took the 45 minute boat ride (ferry) over from Pozzouli. A beautiful day, the sea air and gently rolling waves... pure magic! We managed to treat 6 cats. One had lost his eye and it was running around with a big open wound. Dr. Inga and I tried to catch him but had to give up since he was hiding under a boat and fishing material. Dr.Inga will be returning to the island again soon, and will seek out this cat to try again to catch and treat him.Dr. Inga knew some of the local people and introduced Animals Without Limits, and our mission to them. Raw fish from one of the harbor restaurants was handed to us to make our mission easier (sushi for the cats!).
Maybe 6 cats treated doesn't seem like much, but to those 6 cats, it sure means a lot.

I can tell you that it is a very strong book about strays in different countries, dogs healing children and communication between me and strays ...not giving you too much information here now (I hope). And what went on behind Animals Without Limits, and other "helpers"....during the time in Bosnia, how many people that did AWL and strays a lot of harm. Never talked about this before, it has been to painful.
Hey, we still go out on mini missions, more about that later.
One couple had decided to adopt a dog (in the States) and went to a very nice shelter, found a Rottweiler that they fell in love with. A donation fee was asked for, and the couple gladly paid, and they even paid a little more than double the fee. Later they found out that one man could not afford the adoption fee but wanted one particular dog very much. Because of the generous donation from the couple, this man was able to adopt the dog for free.
This is so much Amore.
The family Wyro are a great Amore family, and even the grandmother has donated to AWL. We thank her dearly.
Our friends from Germany visited us yesterday and they brought donations with them; toys, blankets, dog food and money. You are so wonderful, our dear friends.
Bella with her family, thank you again for your donation. Your support means so much to (us) me.
Veterinarian Inga donated to AWL, not "only" her time but also money. Such Amore.
Vittoria, who spent the whole Tuesday morning translating and seeking/research after Oscar's owner. A very frustrating day.
You wonderful people donate and give us help, hope and strength. I love you!

First question; Am I not out on missions anymore with AWL veterinarian, or with someone else?
Yes I have, but not as often as a couple of weeks ago. Different reasons; our veterinarian has been in Germany-- but are now back--we missed her a lot.
I still do mini mission, but I do not write everything on the blog since I am working "bone hard" on my manuscript. I want some fresh stories that no one have read before.
Teasing Amore, I guess.
Here is a new picture off Giove all his test came out great. We are so happy for that, and so are his "new" mom and dad!
