Destruction

If it weren’t for pesky moles and 4 dogs we would have a pristine yard.

All Riled Up

I let the dogs outside after a long day cooped up on the house due to the heat.  It only took them a couple of minutes to get into mischief.  They were barking like crazy so I went out to see what all the fuss was about.

Thankfully it was just a good sized black snake and not a copperhead.

Another Success

Last night our foster dog, Lola, was adopted!

I think she really hit the jackpot with this family.  Don’t you just love happy endings?

Learning the Ropes

Glen is teaching our foster dog, Lola, how to play with a braided rope.

She is such a pretty girl, can’t believe she hasn’t been snatched up yet.

Searching

The weather has been getting colder so the squirrels have been extra busy trying to find food.  They take advantage and stock up on acorns while the dogs are in the house.

Lola and James were watching them very closely.

Lola

Our foster dog, Wayne, didn’t work out here and had to be moved to a different foster home.  In his place we got Lola.  She is a shephard/lab mix and is about four years old.  She is a very sweet girl, except she doesn’t really care for the company of other dogs.  She tolerates our two hounds, but everyday there is some growling going on.

Lola loves a good belly rub.

She is such a pretty girl and hopefully someone will see her face and just fall in love.

It didn’t take her long to find “doggie TV”…ie: watching squirrels out the front window.

This is Wayne

Our newest foster dog’s name is Wayne.  I’m not sure who comes up with these names, but Wayne is just a weird dog’s name.  The vet thinks he is about 10 years old and he has some health and mental issues.  His health issues I mentioned in a previous post.  As for the mental issues, he has separation anxiety.  I have had no experience with a dog that didn’t behave well when left alone.  However, Wayne is learning how to enjoy being an inside dog and accept love and affection.

Our Newest Foster

I was contacted yesterday by The Animal Rescue Alliance, (T.A.R.A), in reference to them desperately needing someone to foster an elderly dog. We have fostered for them a couple of times in the past, and let’s just say, after reading this dogs story I immediately stepped up.  This old boy was found tied to a fence by Boulevard Brewery in Kansas City.  After trying to get animal control to pick up the dog…which obviously didn’t happen, a T.A.R.A volunteer took him in.

This dog just breaks my heart!  He is only about 40 pounds and has a severe ear and eye infection.  Thankfully he is heartworm negative!  I will probably be picking him up this evening.  He doesn’t have a name yet, so stay tuned for updates.

Doggie Adoption Event

Last Saturday I took Lulu to Lenexa, Ks for an adoption event.  It was a special one, all the dogs got to go for a swim in the pool

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
