DREAM Update

We had a tough year in 2010. Our president (that’s me) was diagnosed with TINU Syndrome (an autoimmune disease) in March and has been down for the count pretty much ever since. The rest of our FABULOUS board of directors has scrambled to fill the gaps, all the while keeping as many dachshunds as we can away from the needle. It has been a bumpy road, but we’ve learned a lot — about each other, about the importance of compassion, about patience, about how important it is to do work that is important to you.

I’m getting back into the swing of things, slowly. We have a board retreat coming up at the end of February where we will reconnect, and figure out how to make 2011 a better year.

Thanks to all of you who have hung in there with us during all of this upheaval.

    DREAM is a wonderful org. no matter what. The board–the foster homes–they all give 150%+. Then comes the Prez. She is beyond words. What a lady!! Keep up the good work in 2011. Your slow(as you put it)is heads above the rest.There are many many many happy longdogs out there because of DREAM. Good luck in all you do. KUDOS to everyone.

    Don`t forget precious Mona Lisa. What a gem. Take a look ppl @ all the pets with DREAM who are waiting for a forever home. Read the stories how each came to DREAM. If this doesn`t stir something in you –nothing will. THIS is the work DREAM does everyday. Don`t buy or breed–ADOPT!!!
