I know all you dog lovers are glued to the Puppy Bowl this weekend, but there is another one that goes on every weekend at Homeward Bound!
It comes complete with tackles,
and unsportsmanlike conduct!
I’ve brought you play-by-play on a couple of them. You’ll find them here and here.
Last week, I shared photos of Sybill and her sister, Kensie at our weekly puppy bowl. Our newest, and smallest additions to Kathryn’s puppy class were feeling a bit overwhelmed by the bigger dogs –
until this weekend! Please welcome tiny Lilu!
To look at her, you wouldn’t know that this little girl has a near-criminal past! Lilu came to us by way of a local veterinarian. She was brought in on an emergency basis – the result of an apparent larceny. It seems she pilfered her owner’s stash. She was in pretty bad shape. The owners wisely chose to surrender when presented with their options.
The vet named her “Felon,” and put in a call to us asking if we could take a Golden Retriever puppy.
We always find it humorous that a vet gets confused about dog breeds when they are hoping for a rescue. 🙂
We renamed this adorable, pint-sized offender a non-too subtle “Mary Jane.” She was with us about two minutes before she was adopted.
Her family rightly selected a new name and enrolled her in class so she can be properly socialized and get a fresh start in her rehabilitated life!
Unlike Sybill and Kensie, she was not intimidated one bit by the big dogs…
she mixes things up and then makes a quick getaway, finding a proper hiding place!
And happily, Sybill has found someone (almost) her own size to play with.
All winners…no losers…in our puppy bowl!

Love the story! Mary Jane…glad she got a better name!
I am in love!
I don’t know how they get all that adorableness into such a tiny package!
Wow, just love these shots!
Thanks, Mary! So much fun to watch them play. 🙂
Love reading about Mary Jane’s rapid rehabilitation from felon to sweetheart, AND how wonderful that Sybill and MJ can play together!
Gosh, how wonderful!! ❤ ❤ ❤
I love watching Fred play with her best friend Riley.. They are like two kids wrestling
And you guys have the best seats in the house, year-round.
Absolutely! A great way to begin every Saturday morning. 🙂
I can see why Felon/MaryJane/new name was adopted right away – she’s adorable in all her “naughtiness”!! Just like my girls were at her age. Precious little angels when they’re asleep but watch out once they’re awake. 😉
Truly great photos by the way! You should print them and put them on a bulletin board in the office! Ducky’s daycare takes pix of all the dogs and puts them on posters and then hangs them up on the walls of the reception area. It’s really a cute idea; and makes me smile every time I drop Ducky off or pick her up.
I believe they use double-sided tape on the back corners of the pix so that they don’t curl up.
Super cute – all of them, thank you!!
This post was WAY better than the Super Bowl!
So much adorableness in one post!!!! Love….
Absolutely nothing beats a morning looking at videos and photos of puppy playfulness in all its beautiful splendor! Love it!
Wonderfull photos , greeting from Belgium
