Some people collect their pet's hair and spin it into thread, then knit something with it.

Smile 6/14 Adoption

Yesterday’s adoption was packed with dogs, cats, and people. Every crate was full and some had two or three. We easily had 30+ dogs with plenty of energy and ready to run, run, and run. So no one wanted to sit still for pictures. Some home I did get some, but I’m not sure how. (All of the dogs with metal plate number tag things are with the city)

Sophie, who is with DAS got her picture taken first. I took her out first because I felt so bad for her. She sat in the back of her cage trembling. I took her out to the grass (had to carry her because she wouldn’t walk) and we just sat wit her. It took her a little while to get up enough courage to come up to me, but once she did we did a lot better. Once we got back in I got a bed for her and a towel since I know a lot of the little dogs that come in want to snuggle. Turns out that’s all she needed. A light bulb must have gone off because she was happy, energetic, and a wiggle worm the rest of the day. Came up to the front of the crate every time some one walked by, made her stay with us that much better.



These pictures always look like I could crush their heads

This is Wonton. A needy poodle mix that yes I put in a pink harness. He was to small for the other harnesses and to big for the small ones... So pink it was.


This is John Wayne…a hardy Chihuahua who is picky about his friends. He either loves you or hates you. Dog that is. He loves all humans! But once he saw me give Sophie a bed; he wanted one too. The city brought very spoiled dogs. And I wasn’t pinning him down. Lol I was tickling his belly while I was taking the pictures.


Little miss Rosey. She loves everyone dogs included and has a TON of energy. Nothing that I’ve seen in a Chi before. Those are all scars on her face and we’re not sure what from. Her owner brought her in that way. We think some one poured something that burned her. It’s also on her back and tail.

Christina is a silly girl. She is still a puppy and wants to be in your face/lap at all times. It was SOOOOOO hard to get a picture of her! I couldn’t get her to sit still or stay out of my lap long enough. She did however find the noise the camera made to be interesting. Kept making her ears go up, to the side, down. hehe


*more*

Mac is still waiting to be put up for adoption. But he still comes to adoptions. He can only be handled by a couple people though. He’s still so tiny and we have to be careful about germs.
After his bath he thought he tasted pretty good.

We kept him in the cat room where no one would mess with him, it was quiet, and he could sleep. This is how we found him resting his head...

His pretty coloring

And he’s intrigued by the camera like Christina was

The Weim/Lab pups were back and still sleeping away like a puppy does. All clustered together.

Except the little loner

Roxie is a new guest foster that came. She’s around 8 months old and was not used to that many dogs! But she warms up fast and loves.

Even bratty Britches.

Dave looks like he’s found a good home. It’s not a for sure thing, but the way these two bonded I don’t think she could live without him now. This young woman walked in and fell in love with him. Once she got him out there was no going back. He slept right there for a good two+ hours.

*All done*

None got adopted, but we did get appliations. We did three homechecks,two test runs (they get to keep the dog over the week end after they check out). The city didn't adopt out any dogs.

Thanks again, for posting your pictures and video Teddie!

Another group of wonderful dogs! I hope, as always, that they find good homes soon.

BTW...Sophie's underbite is so adorable.
