Jessie Weinard of Seaside is going through a tough time, but she prefers to put a positive spin on the situation: “I am starting a new chapter in my life!” she declared.

“I recently became separated,” she wrote, “and am left the responsibilities of the household, which I am perfectly happy with, because I love my life. I have a son who will be 18 months old and two furbabies, Onyx and Bubba, two black Labs, brother and sister, 4 years old. We are a family, and we stick together!”

“My dilemma is I am having to move from our home we rent, as I can’t pay everything here,” she explained. “… I am perfectly fine looking for a new place for a new chapter, but the issue at hand is that until I find a new forever home, I will be staying with family, who cannot take in my dogs. I am unwilling to surrender them before I have tried my hardest to keep them.” Any dog lover can certainly understand her plight.

Jessie has tried in vain to find a foster home for the bonded pair. However, she has found a place to board them for a reduced rate of $750 a month for both dogs, so she has started a fundraiser, “Help me board my furbabies” ( As an alternative, anyone interested in fostering Onyx and Bubba can contact the Ear at 503-325-3211, ext. 257, or

“If you can help, that would be a blessing,” Jessica wrote on her GoFundMe page. “If not, please send positive thoughts and pass this along. I have faith I can reach my goal, and save my furbabies. Love to all, and thank you.”
