Wet Walk Around


Walking dogs between rain storms provided a chance to spend some time in Homeward Bound’s other eight acres – beyond the Memorial Garden. Here are a few vignettes from the pond which has overflowed its banks, and a very soggy landscape. This is what winter looks like in the Sacramento Valley. Good thing dogs can paddle!

I am a nascent gardener, rescuer, and photographer, chronicling the journey of the dogs at Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary near Sacramento, CA - and the Memorial Garden we have devoted to them.

  1. As always, you show me things I would totally miss if left to my own powers of observation. You teach me to stop and “smell the roses.”

  2. Beautiful pictures. I didn’t even know we had cat tails at Homeward Bound. I love the picture of the tennis ball.

  3. Glorious photos! Those clouds are threatening, aren’t they? I know some dogs cannot tolerate a rolling thunderstorm — I hope none of the goldens and others were frightened by any loud booms out your way.
