I am pretty sure my mom may kill me for this or at the very least change her pass word so that I cannot post pictures anymore ... oh well it is worth it. I got scanner happy and have decided to share with all of you some pics of both Tyra and Carol in their younger ... and older years . ENJOY!!!

Carol and some dog she probablly rescued. Is it just me or do they look a lot alike?

Here is Carol and her original rescued scoobie gang of misfits
Carol and the scoobies

Once upon a time Carol and Tyra lived in a somewhat normal home ... at least there was a functional kitchen and about a 2:1 animal/human ratio

The original SAINTS dogs from left to right and front to back: Stan the Man, Wilber, Copper Top, Tyra Jane, and Tally-ho Braveheart.

Then one day Carol founded SAINTS and bought a large property in Mission ... and Tyra was so happy to have her own pond to swim in and a million tennis balls to play with. She says she could have done without Pheobe though

Eventhough there were over a 100 other animals all needing her mama's attention ... Tyra was still the Alpha and she knew it

And when Jenn finished her degree and didn't have to write stupid papers anymore she started coming around too and gave tyra lots of love

and so was Carol

**Both Oldies but goodies though**

But no matter what, Tyra was there in the beginning and her spirit will be here when she is gone too ... and she will always be the saints ALPHA

Way to go, Jenn!
A very beautiful story, told with so few words and images. And a tribute to all who have stood at SANTS, , symbolized by the pioneers. Time is passing and appearances will change, but something essential remains.


You can come and use my scanner, Carol. Anytime. Old photos make great memories.


some day i may just aquire a scanner too....and i have pictures of a certain very young daughter who used to run around the neighborhood nude!


awh what a great time you have had with tyra the stealing the cat food dishes the loving the head rubs she is a great dog and especially to share you so much carol she is amazing.


I know eh? in her younger years you can see the dobe in her way more ... and in her senior years she looks more shep.
