After the rain…
and before the deluge…
moments of beauty –
the company of dogs,
filthy, muddy play,
and a banner weekend for getting dogs home.
There were absolutely no appointments on the board when I arrived early Saturday morning, and then they came, one by one.
Thankfully, we had a full complement of adoption counselors on hand because – by the end of the day –
eight dogs had found their forever families.
In this mix is a very special story; an unexpected little miracle. Our volunteers will recognize it, but the rest of you will have to wait a bit – just to make sure it sticks. Keep those paws crossed and I will bring it to you soon.
Until then, keep bailing –
And thank the heavens for rain in California.

The action shots of ‘muddy, filthy play’ are wonderful.
Thank you! They were having a blast.
As always, you made my day with your photos and words…
I love that eight pups got to go to their new families!! And I love the photos – they’re all beautiful! And now you have me on the edge of my seat wondering what you have up your sleeve. 😊🐶
Stay tuned…so far, so good!
Wow – eight happy ever after endings. 🙂 I love the shots of the muddy pups but really glad it’s not my job to wash them all up. 🙂
Ditto! What a mess! 🙂
Beautiful fall shots. I’m always impressed at how immaculate you garden (and grass!) remain despite the romping of all your pups.
Don’t look too closely! 🙂
Wonderful shots!!! I like muddy play shots!!!!
Fabulous! I can almost smell “wet dog” from here.
Absolutely beautiful! Love ❤️ love #3 & 7
Great photos and stories! And I love how the garden looks after the rains come – it seems to just brighten everything up. The colors are beautiful! So glad there were so many adoptions. It truly warms my heart!! ❤
