Friends Together

“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
~ A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

We did a training and post on the Homeward Bound blog recently on how to do a meet and greet with dogs. It seems everyone has gotten into the spirit of making new friends!





Butterflies and bees.


Frogs…can you count them all here? Hint: some are fuzzy.


Frog 1


Frog 2


Frogs 3 and 4


Frogs 3 and 4 getting a little too friendly!


Brand new recruits Liberty and Skipper were getting into the spirit as well –


with Apollo making them feel more than welcome.


You may have noticed that Apollo is not much of a Golden. We love him anyway – and hope he’ll find his special someone soon!


Even our gardeners came together today.


We’re prepping the Memorial Garden for a very special occasion next weekend. Can’t wait to share. Until then…try leaving your corner of the forest for a bit to see what new friends you might find.

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. I have a wonderful time working in the garden and just visiting with people and dogs as they pass through. Seeing the frogs on the plant yesterday were an added delight. What a beautiful day it was yesterday and I am always pleased when I see you get out your camera, as I know a blog entry will be coming soon. Your pictures are just beautiful, and I feel so fortunate to have made many new friendships here in the garden.
