Don't show Big Virgil that photo.

He'd stick that dog on his roof and wire him up if he thought there was even the slimmest chance that he could dial in just one more HD channel.

Congrats, Brinker.  I hope y'all can recoup the rest of those expenses.  Hopefully the publicity will help out with that.  Cute dog, too.

Nice article Brinker...Though I do have to wonder how you are owned by three rescue dogs.

Does that thing have some sort of foil backing?  If Mrs. doggie got some steel parts, we might be in business.

Brinker - That is certainly doing a selfless deed.  Through your rescue connections, I am glad you have the resources to raise money.  I have to say, in all honesty, if that happened to any dog I own (even when I was really into it), the outcome would be much different.   

Congrats Brinker and I hope the donation keep rolling in.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

She was implying that our dogs run the house.

Steel plates and screws...not sure what type of metal. 

Shadow is a dog. A dog barely alive. Gentlemen, we can rebuild her. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic dog. Shadow will be that dog. Better than she was before. Better, stronger, faster

Then they plan to look for a forever home for the lab. With their three rescue dogs, they want Shadow to have more attention than they can provide.

They said they will be picky about anyone wanting Shadow.

"They'll have to have a fenced yard," he said.


I know this construction worker dude that lives (kinda) in Virginia.  Nice house; fenced in yard; multiple pools; lotta dog "friends" for Shadow; a real "animal lover" that has gone out of his way to make many donations to help other animal lovers out there.  I think he'd be a great addition to the friendsoftheanimals.n et community.  He's got a lot more time on his hands now since his last job fell through.  I won't go into details, but he got totally railroaded for something that was blown completely out of proportion.  Anyway, what's done is done, right?

Seriously, that's a great article, man. 

*raises soda bottle*

To a speedy recovery for Shadow.  And, here's to hoping that donations cover the surgical costs and you guys manage to find her a safe and happy home.
