Gilgamesh's mother was a Dalmatian and his father was a god. He is an athlete, a comedian, a quantum physicist, and is under consideration for both a Nobel Peace Prize and an Emmy Award. His current project is hacking into NASA while swimming the English Channel. He is prone to hyperbole. He is also starving to death and has never been given a treat in his whole life.
If you'd like to enter the frenzied bidding war over the rights to his memoirs - which are engraved on stone tablets - email us at gilgablog (at) gmail (dot) com.
If you don't know where the name Gilgamesh comes from, you should read this right away.
Gilly came from the Thomas J. O'Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center when he was a 7 week old lump closely resembling a thoroughly-chewed kalamata olive pit. He was one of 10 puppies whose pregnant mother was tied to a lamp-post and abandoned. Please spay and neuter, and adopt homeless animals. And please: send shelter or rescue organizations money, volunteer, or call to see if there's anything else you can do. They need your help.
Welcome and enjoy.

There’s a group on Facebook compiling and sharing information on animals lost in Hurricane Sandy -mainly NY & NJ, but some other areas, too.
So many lost, but some of them are finding their way back to their people through citizen groups like these.
Know of other good resources?
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed a law today that bans breed specific legislation.
Right on, Gov. Patrick.
They save us.
We save them.

Here’s a lovely story: veterinary team helps dog paralyzed in Joplin tornado to walk again (video).
Meanwhile, in Western Massachusetts (which only very rarely gets tornadoes at all, and even less frequently in populated areas), Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society and the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Control and Adoption Center (where Gilly came from) have been performing daily heroism helping reunite animals separated from their people in the tornadoes at the beginning of June. They both have wish-lists if you want to help.
