Helen LaBuda

We want to stop and take a little time today to honor a great friend of Dachshunds who passed away this week, Helen LaBuda, of Cedar Lake, Indiana.  Maybe you are lucky enough to know someone in your life who is so incredibly passionate about animals, dogs, Dachshunds, that their entire life is devoted to their care and well-being.  This was Helen La Buda.  She worked tirelessly with MidWest Dachshund Rescue to rescue, transport, vet, foster, and rehome the canines that are dear to our heart, especially those with special needs.  Without her help, hundreds of Dachshunds would have perished, and would have never brought such joy to their new humans' homes and lives. 
We would ask that you consider donating to your local dog shelter or Dachshund rescue in her honor today.  Beacuse even in her passing, she will save more lives. This is what her life was all about.
If you have a few moments to spare, please head over to Happy Tails Books, where you can read a short story that she wrote for a book titled Lost Souls: FOUND! Inspiring Stories About Dachshunds.  Her wonderful sense of humor and love for Dachshunds really comes to light in just a few short paragraphs.  Here's the link.

I am so sorry to hear of Helen's passing. With her help, we were adopted by our dear Orion, a 9 year old smooth red dapple (he was 6 at the time) who is the bright light for our entire family.
May Helen rest in peace knowing the difference that she made in so many lives.
Blessings, Patti

She wanted to hang in there so much for the doxies. Those she was caring for and those yet to be rescued. It's so sad her mission was cut short. It just doesn't seem like it was her time. She always was and will be surrounded by the sweet, furry little creatures she sought to rescue and heal. I'd say rest in peace, but anyone who knows Helen knows she's not resting. She's too busy caring for all the dogs who were waiting for her at the bridge.

Rowdy, did you perchance know Helen...? I enjoyed reading her writing and spent hours admiring her wonderful work. Thanks for this tribute to a rescue hero.
