Pat Arnold's Daily Dog Log ...

No change since last week to the balance of this homepage, except the links at the end.

We will continue to post our ARNOLD STRAY DOG FUND/Straydog Inc. balance every Sunday evening on the Internet, and we'll mail out a periodic newsletter as often as we can to let you all (including those who don't have Internet access) know exactly what our financial situation is.

Dog food, veterinary expenses and kennel crew wages have been running over $1,800 per week, and we are quite often literally paying this week's expenses with this week's donations. We, Pat and Bill Arnold, receive no remuneration whatsoever for any work we do for our no-kill shelter, which includes managing it. (Bill pays our bills from his salary from his regular job in Dallas.)

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

We continue to thank those who continue to write us such encouraging letters and e-mail messages letting us know that you believe in what we are doing at Straydog (our Happy Home for Strays) as we continue to provide a decent life (as long as may be necessary) for each of our now 45 rescued dogs!

Please take a look at some of our newsletters (click on links at end of page) and see the article in The Dallas Morning News --on the Internet at "" (search for Pat Arnold on March 13, 1997).

We rely on donations to keep our shelter going. If you believe in us and in what we are doing, please send whatever you can to THE ARNOLD STRAY DOG FUND at the following address:

Straydog Inc.
P.O. Box 1465
, Gun Barrel City, TX 75147
