THE JOURNEY CONTINUES
Luigi “Shorty” Rossi, star of Animal Planet’s Pit Boss and founder of Shorty’s Rescue, an organization set up for Bully Breed Awareness and Fighting BSL Laws, attended BarkWorld Expo 2015 this past weekend and helped feed a shelter pet through #HaloFeeditForward.
In addition to donating a meal for every #Barkworld registered attendee, Halo Pets had another way for pet bloggers and influencers to donate more meals.
During the social media conference, registered attendees were able to feed a shelter pet by taking a picture with our Rescue Hero frame and posting it online.

The dog’s name is Tanne (German for fir tree):
This is illegal in West Virginia. Dogs cannot be used to hunt deer in any way, but the laws are not well-enforced.
The reason why it’s illegal is that deer were nearly wiped out with market hunters using hounds.
I think this something that should be revised. The dogs are not being used to hunt the deer. They are being used to recover wounded game, which is a very ethical thing to do.
We do it with game birds and migratory waterfowl. Why not with deer?
I went hunting this evening. I didn’t see anything until about 4:45, when I heard the leaves been churned up to my left. I have the left window on my blind zipped up, because that window points up in the woods where the deer can see me if I move. I have the blind right on a well-used game trail, and I knew it would be just a matter of time before the deer thrashing around in the brush to my left trotted out in front of me.
A little doe soon trotted out, and she was followed by a six-point buck. He availed himself to me, and I took the shot. I aimed for the heart, but I he must have moved just as I pulled the trigger on the crossbow.But the rage broadhead still went through his heart. He ran less than a hundred feet before he dropped.
As my dad and I dragged him out of the brush, we came across a big ten-point that was tracking the doe that the six point had been tending. While dad went to get the tractor, the big buck came back and circled me. I snort-wheezed at him, and he stopped and tried to wind me for a few minutes. He then marched into the nearest thicket and began rubbing his antlers against the trees. I had taken out a little weenie that he’d have to beat up tonight.
I can’t go deer hunting again until Thanksgiving week, when the rifle season comes in.
So the big one is safe.
But this is still a nice little buck.
