Wordless Wednesday – Mt. Hope Cemetery Lantern Tour

Rescue Dogs!

New York – Rochester

So, the fantastic news is that Wooftown Rescue has found a home for  Chandler, one of the dogs I sponsored!

Liza (above), my other sponsor dog, is still in need of a foster or forever home.  She needs to go to a family without young kids or other pets, but according to her current foster mom, she’s super sweet and would make a wonderful jogging buddy.  She’s two years old, and only about 40 pounds, so if you’re looking for big dog attitude but don’t have the space for a big dog, she’d be a wonderful fit.  I believe she’s currently in a foster situation with other dogs and would be happier as the only pet.  So if you’d like to have a dog, but aren’t sure you can commit long-term, hosting Liza until she finds a forever home might be a great way to go.  She’s available without an adoption fee.

New York – Buffalo
Flint

Meet Flint.  Flint is a 9 month old male, black German Shepherd Mix.  He was abandoned at the shelter so not sure what his past was like.   Flint is a bit timid when meeting new people….He is friendly with dogs, but a little skittish at first.  Currently, Flint is weighing in about 45 lbs.  He is a very handsome boy.  Flint is fostering with a 1 year old, female German Shepherd and just loves playing with her.  Flint has a very sweet soul.  

You can find more information for Flint here (scroll down).


Texas – Houston
Savannah

From Second Chance German Shepherd Rescue:
Age: 1 1/2 years
Weight: 60 Pounds
Spayed/Neutered: Yes
Housetrained: Yes
Savannah was very sick when Second Chance rescued her, but she’s on the mend, going through heartworm treatment and up for adoption at the end of November!  Her foster family says she loves belly rubs and is great with kids and dogs.  Look at those ears!














Colorado – Breckinridge


Sophie
This is Sophie, a 6 year old collie/aussie mix that is very sweet and shy but will warm up well when she gets to know you! Sophie has been very calm while in the shelter. She was tested with a clam and rambunctious dog, she was fine with both even popped into the play bow position with the rambunctious one. She does well with small and large dogs. Her favorite thing to do go for walks but watch out if there is any body of water near as Sophie will want to lay in it or go swimming in it. She loves the water! While she loves to go for hikes, walks, or runs when it’s time to settle down at the end of the day she will curl up by your side with her head in your lap and stay there. Her coat is very fluffy and long and will need consistent grooming but it is as soft as silk! Please open your heart to this sweet and gentle older girl.
Good with dogs and cats. Older children would be ok, but we are not sure how she will do with young kids as she tends to avoid them.
California – Oakland
Charlie
Charlie, 15 month old owner surrender, superb with obedience, but needs a calm, stable home with (preferably) one other soft dog to play with, a nice fenced yard (he is not a dog park dog), no children. He is WONDERFULLY sweet, and seems to have gotten past his old fear based issues. He greets and welcomes strangers submissively and sweetly, but his new owner should always be mindful to watch his comfort level and not push him. Charlie needs a gentle, loving, kind owner. Please share and crosspost. He needs a home URGENTLY.

Stupid Cold

I don’t get sick gracefully.  I have little patience for myself when I’m not at 100% and I’m not good at relaxing.  The dreaded lurgy hit our house this week, slowed everything down, and forced us to cancel our super fun weekend plans with our favorite people.

Instead of showing you all what a champion whiner I can be, here are a few things that are cheering me up.

Teeny tiny gluten-free bunny cookies.
I don’t know if it’s helping or not, but it tastes good.
I feel like Siri really gets me.
The flash on my new phone turns Argo into Alien Dog.
And, it’s a terrible picture, but this:

The cat suddenly decided she likes hanging out with the dogs, and I have proof.
