Featured Friday: Smiling Dog Farms
Topic: Featured Friday

Today’s site highlights an amazing group out of Wharton, TX, who provide sanctuary to dogs who have been deemed “unadoptable” or have run out of time at a shelter.  Jay Hellerich and Richard Clements have been making a difference in the lives of these unique animals since 1994 and have since bought a peaceful 37-acre farm to ensure there will always be a place for the dogs.


Exploring the site you will discover how the sanctuary began and are able to learn more about the dogs currently at the farm.  Though most of the dogs are there to live out the rest of their days, some are available for adoptions and you can learn more about these cuties.  Plus, there is a whole section that details the various ways you can help Smiling Dog Farms.
Take a few minutes to check the site out and support a wonderful and caring group!

Featured Friday: G.R. Holton's Science Fiction Site
Topic: Featured Friday

Like Science Fiction? Why not support a fellow Angelfirian by buying his books on Kindle, Nook, PDF, or Paperback or read his screenplay! G.R. Holton has a love of science fiction and uses writing as a form of therapy.


Not only has G.R. written science fiction books (e.g. Deep Screams & Soleri), but he has also written up a screenplay which you can read a synopsis of on his website, and he has also acted in "12 Angry Men" as Juror #5! Don't just take our word for it - you can read plenty of book reviews of G.R's books on his website as well to help you make the right choice of which book to read first! G.R. Holton has even created the book design for Cameron's A to Z of which all royalties go to Habitat for Humanity. 


Support G.R. Holton if you love Sci-Fi or if you just appreciate an outstanding person such as himself! Visit his site at GRHolton.com.

Featured Friday: Mymsin Japanese Shiba Inu
Topic: Featured Friday

I love Shiba Inus but I have heard that they can be hard to raise or live with. Shiba Inus are beautiful dogs which originate from Japan that have strong personalities. On http://www.mymsinshibas.co.uk you can read all about the webmaster's history with Shibas as well as great tips for living with and caring for Shibas.



You can also find out some interesting facts about Shibas in the "What If?" section. For example, did you know that Shibas are highly in tune with you when you're pregnant and may even know before you do!? Weird! And then of course, the best part of the website, looking at the many, many pictures of the Shibas! Have fun!

Update: FTP Outage and Denial of Service Attack
Topic: Angelfire News
My name is Chris, and I'm the general manager for Angelfire and Tripod. As some of you are aware, FTP is currently unavailable. I wanted to explain what's happened, why, and what we're doing next.
Angelfire was hit by denial of service attack early yesterday morning. Thanks to security measures we have in place, no member accounts were violated, and no Angelfire sites were harmed. However, the force of the attack did cause us to take certain parts of Angelfire offline, including FTP, which was the main focus of the attack.
We've been working through the night, and will continue working today, to restore full service to everyone. Thank you for your patience as we restore service, and for your patronage. 
As soon as we have an ETA on restoring full service, we will let you know.
Chris Cummings
General Manager

Featured Friday: SouthSide Boxers
Topic: Featured Friday

What's a better holiday treat than puppies? This week's featured site is a small kennel out of Mystic, Iowa and they have boxer puppies galore. You can tell from how the owners of SouthSide Boxers speak about caring for their Boxers and the puppies that they care deeply about the health and well-being of the dogs - the puppies are even raised right in their own living room so that they have an easy transition into a new home.


Possibly the best part of the website? The album full of puppies of course! You can flip through pictures of the two female boxers (Regina & Gracie), the male boxer (Cholo), and the many, many puppies. In the holiday spirit? Some of the pups had a holiday photo shoot which is a must-see.





To see all of the puppies and possibly get an adoption of your own underway, visit southsideboxers.org!

Featured Site: Karissa Harvey
Topic: Featured Friday

This week's featured site (although a little late!) is a stunning website - both design-wise and due to the beautiful artwork that artist and webmaster Karissa Harvey has created.


Karissa Harvey presents her solo artwork as well as her CV and a way to contact her right on her site. Her collection of work, "Sunbathers," is not only well crafted but has an interesting backstory about how she reimagined photographs that her grandfather took of sunbathers into large-scale full-color portraits. 


Take a look at Karissa's site and flip through the paintings and read the whole story about the sunbathers. Also, keep checking in because if we're lucky, maybe she'll add more artwork soon! 


Check it out at karissaharvey.com!
