Excerpt from blog in Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue back in 2016.

His journey leading to life in the public eye was long and winding. Before his adoption, he bounced around from shelter to shelter and foster home to foster home. He had major fear aggression. He ended up in Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue, as one of my fosters. Our connection was so strong that I decided to adopt him. This was two years ago…we believe he is around 8 years old now. His personality has improved SO much that even I’m pleasantly surprised!

Nathan is an active playful dog. His favorite things to do are chase toys in the yard, jump really high, and, as I eventually discovered, wiggle and dance. The dancing is what has made him famous. What started out as a feel-good back rub in a cushy office chair turned Nathan into an internet sensation when a video of him was featured on The Ellen Show. From that point on, Nathan’s dance video was shown on Arsenio Hall, Today Show, The View and Animal Planet along with other news and entertainment programs.

For Nathan and his friends at Bald is Beautiful Dog Rescue, this adventure has drawn positive attention to hairless breed dogs, which include the Chinese Crested, along with the American Hairless Terrier and Mexican Hairless. Although their looks are considered odd to some, Nathan’s growing fan base is discovering what makes them incredibly special: quirky antics, expressive faces and loving personalities. Because of Nathan, adoptions within the rescue have benefitted; inquiries and interest about the breed has increased and comments have been more positive than ever!! "



What kind of New Year Resolutions do our PETS make?



I will stop trying to find the few remaining clean pieces of carpet in the house when I am about to throw up.

I will not roll on dead seagulls, fish, crabs, etc.

I will not eat other animals' poop.

I will not lick my human's face after eating animal poop.

I will not eat my own vomit.

I will not eat "kitty box crunchies".

I will not eat any more socks and then re-deposit them in the backyard after processing.

The diaper pail is not a cookie jar. I will not eat the disposable diapers, especially the dirty ones.

I will not chew my human's toothbrush and not tell them.

I will not chew crayons or pens, specially not the red ones, or my people will think I am hemorrhaging.

When in the car, I will not insist on having the window rolled down when it's raining outside.

I will not drop soggy tennis balls in the underwear of someone who is sitting on the toilet.

I will not bark each time I hear a door bell on TV.

I will not walk under the big dog when he is peeing.

I will not steal Mom's underwear and dance all over the back yard with it.

I will not play tug-o'-war with Dad's underwear when he's on the toilet.

The sofa is not a face towel. Neither are Mom & Dad's laps.

My head does not belong in the refrigerator.

I will not bite the officer's hand when he reaches in for Mom's driver's license and car registration.

I do not need to suddenly stand straight up when I'm lying under the coffee table.

I will not roll my toys behind the fridge.

The garbage collector is NOT stealing our stuff.

I must shake the rainwater out of my fur BEFORE entering the house.

My human will never let me eat her pet hamster, and I am at peace with that.

I will not puff my entire body to twice its size for no reason after my human has finished watching a horror movie.

I will not slurp fish food from the surface of the aquarium.

I must not help myself to Q-tips, and I must certainly not proceed to stuff them down the sink's drain.

I will not eat large numbers of assorted bugs, then come home and puke them up so the humans can see that I'm getting plenty of roughage.

I will not lean way over to drink out of the tub, fall in, and then pelt right for the box of clumping cat litter. (It took FOREVER to get the stuff out of my fur.)

I will not stand on the bathroom counter, stare down the hall, and growl at NOTHING after my human has finished watching The X-Files.

I will not use the bathtub to store live mice for late-night snacks.

I will not perch on my human's chest in the middle of the night and stare into her eyes until she wakes up.

We will not play Herd of Thundering Wildebeests Stampeding Across the Plains of the Serengeti over any humans' bed while they're trying to sleep.

Screaming at the can of food will not make it open itself.

I cannot leap through closed windows to catch birds outside. If I forget this and bonk my head on the window and fall behind the couch in my attempt, I will not get up and do the same thing again.

I will not assume the patio door is open when I race outside to chase leaves.

I will not intrude on my human's candle-lit bubble bath and singe my bottom.

I will not stick my paw into any container to see if there is something in it. If I do, I will not hiss and scratch when my human has to shave me to get the rubber cement out of my fur.

If I bite the cactus, it will bite back.

When it rains, it will be raining on all sides of the house. It is not necessary to check every door.

Birds do not come from the bird feeder. I will not knock it down and try to open it up to get the birds out.

The dog can see me coming when I stalk her. She can see me and will move out of the way when I pounce, letting me smash into floors and walls. That does not mean I should take it as a personal insult when my humans sit there and laugh.

I will not play "dead cat on the stairs" while people are trying to bring in groceries or laundry, or else one of these days, it will really come true.

When the humans play darts, I will not leap into the air and attempt to catch them.

I will not swat my human's head repeatedly when she's on the family room floor trying to do sit ups.

When my human is typing at the computer, her forearms are *not* a hammock.

Computer and TV screens do not exist to backlight my lovely tail.

I am a walking static generator. My human doesn't need my help installing a new board in her computer.


IN NEED......


This is Lemon

NOTE from LORI: this request is genuine - Marc and I know the relatives.

"So, as some of you might know me, you know that Lemon means the world to me. She is my best friend.
I do everything to make her happy, comfortable and healthy. 

Well, you can imagine my heartache when, 2 weeks before Christmas, on a Sunday evening while I was preparing supper, my bf came back from a calm walk in the neighborhood and opens the door with bloody hands. (!!)

Some dog owner had his dog loose in the public park. While walking Lemon, like every other day around the area,  that dog saw Lemon, bolted for the fence and when it saw an opening, it ran, crossed the street and went straight for our dog. Growling and biting. The owner had no recall power on his dog. My bf kept screaming at him to run and grab his dog, while backing away, and trying to protect Lemon.  And Lemon trying to protect my bf.

While trying to protect Lemon and pulling at the leash and backing away, Lemon got bit in the bum at multiple occasions. Yup, that soft tissue got pierced pretty deep too.The next day, on painkillers. My bf got bit trying to separate the two. And when the owner finally got a hold of his dog, and saw my bf's bloody hands, he said he was sorry and ran away. (!) "
