Animals Available for Adoption

at the Plattsmouth Animal Shelter

 

Milly2

 

 

This is Milly, she is a 1yr old spayed female mix.  Mommy was a shi-poo and daddy a sheltie but I see terrier mix in her.  She is a doll that loves everybody and everything.  She is the perfect companion for anyone.  She is trying really hard on her potty training and doing good, we have a sweater and potty pants to come with her.  We will also throw in some potty pads to use in the home to prevent accidents. 

 

Milly has spent too much time in a shelter and wants to bond with someone, I took her home for the weekend and she was so good in the house, she wore her pants and had no accidents at all, she lays by your side and just wants to be with you.  She didn't tear anything up, she didn't do anything bad at all. 
  
Won't someone give her a chance??

 

If you may be interested ask about fostering her before adopting.

pregnancy-infant-loss-remembrance-day

 

Something that is near and dear to my heart.  October is not only Breast Cancer Awareness month, but it is also Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness Month.

In 2007 my husband and I found out we were expecting.  We were OVERJOYED.  The growing tummy, the mood swings, the cravings.  I loved it.

Until the day came that the ER doctor told me that we were losing the baby.  I was ANGRY.  Angry and upset at myself.  I shouldn't have had the pop.  Or I didn't eat the right foods.  I was angry at God.  Why would he take my baby away from me.  After some soul searching and lots of tears, I made my peace.  I realized that HE had bigger plans for our baby.  And we will meet him one day.

I loved that baby.  I always have, and always will.

I am one of the special people in this world.  

I have three angels.  

Two are on earth in my arms.  One is in heaven, in my heart.

I am the face, I am 1 in 4.

 

If you are stricken by grieve of losing a child, by any means, please feel free to contact me.  No words can take away your grieve, but my ears can listen.

 Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee Results

The Seventeenth Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee in Avoca, Nebraska, was enjoyed by a full house on Sunday afternoon, October 13, in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse.

Musicians from Avoca, Bellevue, Bennington, Lincoln, Omaha, Ord, Seward, competed and jammed with their upright basses, fiddles, guitars, and voices, for cash money and prizes.  The judges had a difficult job, but managed to make wonderful decisions.   The judges were Kylie Rezac, from Lincoln, and Don Bochnicek, from Omaha.

In the Open Division, each fiddler had to play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice.  The winners were:

First Place - Mike Oneel, from Ord
Second Place - Devin Cartwright, from Bennington
Third Place - Dottie Ladman, from Lincoln

In the Singing Division, each fiddler has to play and sing a tune at the same time.  The winner was Ella Moll, from Seward.

In the Fee Fi Faux Division, each musician had to play a fiddle tune on an instrument that is not a fiddle.  The winner was Isaac Bonner, upright bass player, from Omaha.

In the Twin Fiddling Division, two fiddlers had to play a tune together, with one of them playing the melody, and the other playing the harmony.  The winners were Lilli Summerlin, from Auburn, and Sharon Roberts-Yuen from Lincoln.

Next year, the 18th Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
