Dogs Rescued for Suspected Puppy Mill Need “Forever Homes”

For several weeks now, volunteers have been assisting the Pondera County Sheriff's Office with caring for eleven pitbulls rescued from an alleged "puppy mill" that was running out of a house in Valier. Sheriff Robert Skorupa says the owner, who is awaiting trial, has agreed to surrender six of the dogs, and they are now available for adoption. The remaining five dogs will remain in the county's custody until the trial, and if they are not returned to the owner, they will also be available to adopt.

Rodeo’s On The Way & So’s Marlin

Our good neighbor & friend, Marlin, will be joining me this afternoon (Thursday) at 2:30, on the Puff Man Show. Often times I refer to Marlin as "Montana Marlin" or simply "Double M." This afternoon, Marlin will be giving us the straight scoop on the Choteau American Legion 4th of July Rodeo. My rodeo days memories go back to the 1950's, when I was growing up in the late Cy Taillon's neighborhood. Old cy was the most famous rodeo announcer of the mid-20th century. Looking forward to talking rodeo with Marlin, at 2:30, this afternoon on the Puff Man Show where we're always "bucking" for a good time. Hope you can join us...
