Worth Waiting For

Some things are worth waiting for. Like a Robin anticipating spring…

0r dreams of forever homes finally come true. Our beloved Bogey was Homeward Bound’s blind, golden guest; regular readers have met him here before.

He may not see, but he has never let his blindness slow him down a bit. He goes careening through life with joyful abandon. Exuberant, playful, strong, and thoroughly adorable, Bogey has charmed all the volunteers who work with him.

We were pleased to provide a safe place for him to live and be loved. Resigned to his status, we made him an Angel Fund dog, and wrote on his description – “Insight is better than eyesight when it comes to seeing an angel.” ~ Eileen Elias Freeman. We said that Bogey had a special feeling his guardian angel was reading his description “right now.” Bogey was right.

On February 14th – Valentine’s Day – after three years in Sanctuary, Bogey was adopted. His adopter angels: two retired eye doctors.

We cannot begin to express our delight. A collective cheer could be heard across our ranks to read that Bogey spent his first night on the couch and his first day walking the canyons with his new forever family. Some things are definitely worth waiting for.

Happy life, Bogey friend (with special thanks and credit to our photographer friend, Rob Kessel). We will miss you!

    Maggie and her family are so happy that her brother from Homeward Bound was adopted. From our Guardian Angel to the angles who adopted Bogey.

    So sweet. After having the experience and pleasure of having three blind dogs at different times over the years, two from old age cataracts and one fairly young dog that lost her sight because of diabetic complications. Blind dogs bring their own level of love and companionship. Love and luck to the new forever home for Bogey!!!
