My Dog Sarah!

Tomorrow I won't be able to get on the computer to post until night time or late afternoon, so I'm going to post some pictures of my dog Sarah Lee being cute, too substitute for tomorrow. :D

We adopted Sarah from, and she is the best dog. At first, we thought she was 1/2 Labrador Retriever, 1/2 Australian Cattle Dog. But we've come to realize that she has pit bull in her, and I could NOT be happier! I love pit bulls, they are one of my favorite breeds. So, Sarah Lee is 1/3 Australian Cattle Dog, 1/3 Labrador Retriever, and 1/3 Pit bull!!!

Here are four pictures of her acting cute and feisty.

Sarah with her best friend Bruno the German Shepherd:

Sarah with her favorite toy, her Soccer Ball!!!

And Sarah dressed as a bunny with her stuffed lamb:

Hi Ann! It's Owen's mom, and don't you think Karl and Sarah would make a dynamic duo??

I'm a huge fan of your photography and your rv-ing ways! Very nice work that you do, and what a way to represent the beauty of Montana.

Sincerely, Janet

Thankyou very much Ann!

And I agree with mom, I bet Karl and Sarah would be best buds!

Elizabeth said...

I love these pictures of your cute and feisty dog! (She is also very photogenic!) Your website is terrific and I am so impressed by everything you are doing to help endangered species. Keep up the good work Owen!

Owen F said...

Thank you so much Elizabeth! I'm glad ya like the site!!! :D

Owen and Owen's Mom, Janet,

When I first saw the photos of Sarah I thought - maybe she has some Karelian in her... Karl loves girl dogs - most boy dogs also, but especially the girls so I have no doubt that he and Sarah would be good friends.

And thank you Janet. Both photography and the rv-ing are hobbies that have become passions. And I love sharing a bit of Montana.

Happy Thanksgiving to both of you and the rest of the family!

Ann, Karl and Bob (the cat!)

Gracious, Sarah wears bunny ears! I know a lot of dogs and cats that wouldn't do that. Here are my cats. That's Spirit on the left and Shiva on the right. Right now they're curled up together in the recliner.

Owen F said...

Marilee- Spirit and Shiva are gorgeous, shiny creatures! They sure look happy and slightly smug... were they up to something? (Aren't cats always?)

And I don't think Sarah Loved the Bunny Ears, but she does love to do whatever her "mother" Owen asks.

The last comment to Marilee, from Owen, was actually from Janet...

sorry, technology is NOT my forte!

Wonderful pictures Owen! What a fantastic dog. We have a 60kg Greek sheepdog/collie cross that we found in the streets and three cats, which we also picked up when they were abandoned as kittens.One is 13, one is 7 and the baby is 2.

My pets too love to play with their toys which I got through PETsMART for them.

As another way to raise money, we auction things on E-bay. These things can range from hand drawn digital and pencil animal pictures, animal paintings, animal themed bookmarks, and more. No, not everything is animal themed, we just prefer it to be since we are raising money for animals. If you have something you'd like for us to auction, you can send it to us. As I'm 13, I have to always ask my parents before I give out the address, so you will have to contact me with some info about what the item(s) is, and such. Then I can give you the address. :D

Have some questions? Want more info? Care to donate? Contact us at:

We will reply within a day or two.

Thanks to Pyzam for the awesome Layout. Thanks to WWF for doing such a great job helping and protecting our wildlife. Thanks to all my friends and family who've helped. Thanks to MC for the name, it fits perfectly!!! The logo is (C) to HOPES, please do not steal, or re-use in any way. ( Although I couldn't draw a paw, so I heavily refferenced it, and I don't know who originally did it. ) We are a non-profit orginization. Any money HOPES earns goes to the WWF.
