The Women's Movement in Iran

Robert Dreyfuss over at The Nation wrote an article this week on Women Revolutionaries and the current women's movement in Iran. This article was refreshing because it was in-depth, informative and gave enough background to help me understand not only what's happening over there, but the history behind it and why women now have the organization and ability to protest like they are. I stand in awe of their courage and their continued fight. It's worth the read."Women Commandos" in Iran

He even got along with the cat.. LOL.. But i was wondering if this doesnt pan out where do I look for a German Shepard?? I know those are your favorites.

I think the best place to find dogs is the shelter. If you're looking for breed specific, look for breed rescue groups. Here we have the Mid-Atlantic German Shepherd Rescue Group. Wow, I just did a search for Wisconsin and you have a number of GS rescue groups. Here's the address for one of them: http://www.gsraw.com/
