To Rich, With Love & Gratitude

richnewmanAs we officially roll out our new website,, I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU  to Rich Newman who basically put DRTB "on the map"!  Rich created a website for us back in 2003 that let everyone know we existed and told the stories of the spots we were saving.  Shortly after he created our website, we started getting emails from as far away as Iraq and England.  Help and aide started coming and we were truly in the rescue business.  Which was really good because we had 27 Dals in our house and needed it!  Since then, we have rescued over 1,000 spotted and non-spotted dogs and have strived to make a difference in the world.  Rich made all of that possible and we will always remain extremely thankful and indebted to him.

richawardOur current website at has served us very well over the years.  Rich had long maintained it himself until his other passions of painting and writing became more than full-time.  Because the current website is done in html code and I am somewhat (okay a lot) technologically challenged, we needed something easier to update.  Our stories were getting way behind because of the time it took me to update.  Our new website allows us to update just like using a Word document so we will be able to get you updated stories and news every week. 

We hope you like the new website and would love to have your feedback, good and bad, so that we can continue to improve it. 

Thanks to all for hanging in there with us since 2003......and Rich, you are the best!!!!!!
