It’s All About The Dogs


An Indian Summer drifts begrudgingly into autumn, dragging her last lazy rays behind her.

And, with lavish hands, she works in shifts.” ~ Gertrude Tooley Buckingham

It’s too hot to garden (much less fly!)…


much better to just enjoy the company of dogs.


I’ve written for years about our rescue – Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary. For those who can’t travel to visit us, I thought you might enjoy a video recently completed and donated by our long-time volunteers Bob Murphy and Carolyn Belz. Regular readers might recognize some of the dogs and their stories. It’s a magical place … because “it’s all about the dogs.”

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. Great video (and blog too). I feel like I know the place a bit now, not just in words, but what it looks like – amazing.

  2. A big thank you to Bob and Carolyn for the wonderful video. It brought tears to my eyes. Love seeing so many happy dogs.

  3. Beautiful photos of the flowers! And the video is priceless! All those happy Golden faces made me smile through my tears. If I had the access to land, money, and people, I would start my own sanctuary/rescue for Goldens here in SC. (Oh, please God, let me win the lottery!)
