The organization that rescued my dog Nemo is under a lot of financial pressure. A number of very needy dogs have come along in a very short period of time. The video above details just some of their current hard-luck cases. They've started an Indiegogo project to find some help.
Who the heck keeps abandoning these giant white dogs, anyway? The sheer number of dogs that end up at the Great Pyrenees Rescue of Northern California is bewildering. Regardless where the dogs come from, the team at GPRNC takes them in and gets them the best care possible. Watch the video, the stories Randy tells about these dogs get me every time.
Nemo is one of the puppies in their video. He came from the Necco litter and was super sick. It took a LOT of love and care to get him to me.
Nemo is amazing. I just adore him. This gentle, caring dude has added so much to my life. Nemo is with me nearly always, I think I'm driving the BB Ingenuity event coordinator crazy asking to get him in. He guards my daughter when she's in the tub. He thinks he can sneak into my bed, but he can't sneak anywhere, he's massive and a goofball.
If you are in NorCal and think you can handle a Pyr, please talk to them. If you can help foster dogs, please talk to them. If you can contribute a couple dollars, please do. I did.
Great Pyrenees Rescue of Northern California has launched an Indigogo project to raise $8k. Please help them.

I grew up on RPGs, not tabletop strategy games, but the one exception was Car Wars, a dystopian science fiction game where you kit out vehicles with weapons and then fight them in giant duelling pits or in freeway battles. I loved Car Wars and played it like crazy.
