Phantom Past, Indigenous Presence
The imagined ghosts of Native Americans have been an important element of colonial fantasy in North America ever since European settlements were established in the seventeenth century. Native burial grounds and Native ghosts have long played a role in both regional and local folklore and in the national literature of the United States and Canada, as settlers struggled to create a new identity for themselves that melded their European heritage with their new, North American frontier surroundings.

Another old pic from the spay/neuter clinic. Me with a sweet-heart Great Dane puppy (yes, puppy. She was only about 6 months old!).
Also sporting my teenage mutant ninja turtle hair clip. Y’know, cuz I’m a professional and all.

SERVICE DOG SAVES NEXT DOOR NEIGHBORS FROM FIRE - ”Bella started scratching and barking at Elizabeth Campbell’s bedroom window.”
Bella, a Golden Retriever in Arcadia, North Carolina, is a service dog who helps her owner deal with PTSD. Bella was outside when she noticed that the house next door was on fire. She barked and scratched at the neighbors’ window until they were alerted to the fire. Thanks to Bella, they escaped before a part of the roof collapsed. Read more from WGHP:

When Campbell and her fiancée got up to see what the commotion was about they quickly realized their home was on fire. The two are parents and were able to get all three of their kids out of the house before part of the roof collapsed.
“I sit back and think about it, if that dog wouldn’t have got us up out of the bed we wouldn’t have been able to make it to the two girls in the back,” explains Campbell.
Bella’s owner, Anthony Villalobos didn’t need this to know that Bella is a good dog. She is his service dog for PTSD. Villalobos got Bella when we was in the hospital recovering from an IED blast.
“She will actually settle me down when we go out to crowded areas. She stays close to me. She provides a bubble for me,” explains Villalobos.
A soldier and his dog — next door neighbors that were there to protect.
“She saved our life. She really did,” says Campbell.

Bella is an awesome dog. Click here for the full story and a news video (Screenshot taken from WGHP video).
