This is how tired I am. Dog tired.
But it’s the best kind of tired. This weekend, we put more than 200 bulbs in the ground and pots for spring –
and planted a Redbud in honor of sweet BoBo.
BoBo found his forever home with Rob of RobandDog –
and started him on his journey of rehabilitating those dogs most in need.
Six pups went home including one-up/one-down Tessa with her new friend Ringo,
And Barnaby who is being renamed “Barney” as in his new Dad’s favorite TV character, Barney Fife.
Adding to the chaos was a visit from Santa!
Each year he makes a special trip to Homeward Bound to take pictures with all the dogs who have been adopted –
Because we don’t have a chimney in the senior sanctuary, and because some of the senior dogs can’t walk all that way to Santa – his elves were enlisted to lend a hand. Look … I can fly!
All-in-all, it was an exhausting and perfect pre-Thanksgiving weekend reminding us to be thankful for the new families of our furry friends,
and our family of devoted volunteers who make it happen.
