Bigdog, almost all of the ones I had were rescues from abuse and people that did not know what they were getting into. Most of those people got into it for the status. Wrong thing to do!!!! I still rescue animals of all sorts (reptiles exculded!!!).

No, I'm not advocating wolves or wolf-hybrids as pets, either! I think the work that the folks on the rescue sites, and people like Shunka do is wonderful. The animals can't help who they are. It's (@#*(@ people who breed them because it's a 'status' thing.

And to keep it straight, Shiloh Shepherds (at least the ones bred by the founder and registered as ISSR Shilohs) are NOT wolf-hybrids!

Thank you Marm for sharing..they are beautiful animals .
I'm not sure just where Maryville Tn. is. We have driven Highway 40 from Ca. to NC many, many times..Will you be in the Black Mountain area? Just a stones throw east of Asheville NC. My niece (DH's) niece and husband own the German Restaurant in Black Mountain. Well worth the stop and really super people.
Berliner Kindel, Inc.
German Restaurant & Dili
20 Ball Street
Black Mountain, NC

A funny thing..When Kitchenelf's friend invited Elf and DH out for dinner she said they were going to a friends place about an hour up into the mountains..It was Sharon and Freddie's restaurant. It turns out Elf's friend was Sharon's Bridesmaid !
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

Small world, isn't it, Dove!

Here's Maryville:

(Yikes - that was Mapquest, in case you couldn't get to it, lol!)

A little south of I-40, southwest of Knoxville and Sieverville. I can't wait!! This will be my first weekend 'away' in over 2 years, and I sure do need it!

I will be at the Dayspring Kennel all day Saturday, then going back to Maggie Valley Sat. nite. I'm thinking - maybe - of heading up I-40 to Asheville, then to Black Mountain - not sure if I'm going to do that, or just cruise down through Bat Cave and Chimney Rock and Lake Lure on the way home - you can see my itinerary is pretty loose! :) I love the Smokies - my soul is there, and it's where I find peace. I know there's a Cherokee somewhere in my past! :)
