Who says that we don’t get paid at an all-volunteer rescue? Remember my subjects from Puppy Truths?
Cici was adopted right away,
but you might recall that two of them, Timmy and Wyatt, came home with us for a bit last winter when we thought the rains and flooding would never quit.
My Yogi was happy to keep the little monsters company.
It’s still unclear who the bigger puppy was!
Recently, all three returned to Homeward Bound for a reunion.
It’s one of the bonuses for our unpaid work: welcoming back our charges to see what kind of canine citizens they have become.
And look how they have grown!
At almost 10 months now, they are still full of spit and vinegar…
and when you yell “Puppy, puppy, puppy!” they still come running!
Cici is Angel now, and Wyatt is Elvis (it suits him!). But Timmy is still Timmy – through and through.
They were surrendered to us because each had low-level heart murmurs – small enough not to change their quality of life or longevity – but just enough that three lucky families got to call them their own.
Lucky me for the chance to spend time with them.
