BRIT’s 2017 Transport Super Heroes

BRIT’s 2017 Transport Super Heroes

BRIT is incredibly grateful for all of our Transport Volunteers…or, as we like to call them, our BRIT Super Heroes!  Many of the rescues we took on this year were true logistic challenges. We covered every corner of The Great State of Texas and even dipped into neighboring states. Two Brittanys flew in a private aircraft from Oklahoma. One was a Hurricane Harvey survivor. Several Brittanys relayed between multiple drivers. Through it all our volunteers did a great job.  Thank you to all of our awesome transport volunteers – we couldn’t do this without...

My experience as a Foster Mom

My experience as a Foster Mom

Whenever I’ve been out with a foster dog or I’m talking to someone about rescue, I’ve heard the same statement; “I could NEVER do that! I would love them too much to give them up!” My response to that is “If I can do it, so can YOU!” When I first became active in rescue it wasn’t to foster. I didn’t feel the calling, I didn’t think I could foster. As it often happens, my first fostering experience was a bit of an emergency. I got the call, could I? Would I? I screwed up my courage and dove right into the deep end. That first step, as scary as it was, was the beginning of a journey that has been gratifying as no other rescue activity I can think of. People ask me if I...

Keep your Backyard a Safe Haven for Your Brittanys

Keep your Backyard a Safe Haven for Your Brittanys

Spring has sprung in Texas … happy news for your Brittanys, who will be spending more time sniffing and romping and rolling in the great outdoors. While longer days and warmer days make us happy, they can bring some risks to our Brittanys. Every seasonal change can bring dangers, but the Spring season presents some specific risks that can be easily addressed as long as we Brittany owners know what to look for. Spring Time Dangers for French & American Brittanys Fire Ants Be aware of fire ants AND what you use to kill them (both can be harmful to your Brittany). Fire ant bites can be a big problem for dogs. According to a recent survey completed by veterinarians,...

Watch for rattlesnakes lurking in Bluebonnets

Watch for rattlesnakes lurking in Bluebonnets

Bluebonnet season is upon us, the time of year the entire state looks like a Blue Bell Ice Cream commercial. The annual bluebonnet bloom is definitely a sight to behold and you may be tempted to take your family out for photos but beware because the warm weather also brings poisonous snakes out of hibernation.  They are most likely to appear at dawn and dusk. If you or your Brittany see a snake…back away! If anyone is bitten go to an ER immediately.  There are four kinds of venomous snakes in Texas: coral snakes, copperheads, cottonmouths (water moccasins) and rattlesnakes.
