Made for each other

Some things are just made for each other: butterflies and flowers…


tiny frogs in roses…


the color gold and fall.


We had a weekend full of “made for each others” at Homeward Bound including Bogart and Bacall – a bonded pair that we insisted go home together. It took a little longer, but today they found their bonded human pair.


Mylee – at just ten months, is full of youthful spunk and energy; perfect for a family of kids and a runner mom to exhaust her puppy enthusiasm.


And Billy Joel. Born with extra toes and missing two wrist bones, his paw is permanently fixed in something that looks like a ballet pose.


He has adapted well and it does not slow him down one bit, so the doc says “leave it” unless it becomes a problem.


But that can be a hard thing to explain to people looking for a “perfect” dog. Until today.


He went home on a trial run – just to be sure everything works out. And we sure hope it does. Because, by the looks of things, he too found the perfect someone he was made for.
