We mean it this time…

3 Sep

Having said goodbye to senior furry friends and then welcomed in two new rescue ones, we got plugged into the doggie rescue network. One dog, rescued several weeks ago, nicknamed “schoolgirl” by the doggie rescue network wormed her way into our hearts. Not just her looks or her personality, but her bittersweet story. We couldn’t let her go.

Last night, discovering that she hasn’t yet been adopted, we voted and decided she should live with us. On the crazy dog boat…full of dogs. Because why not, and sweet, and Abby needs a scruffy sister, and what are we thinking?!

But we publicly state here that this is it…no more…we mean it this time…even if we have to block pictures and news feeds from all the wonderful doggie rescue people…three is a FULL boat. Thank you to Bugsys Buddies and Kilby Kountry Rescue for  your wonderful rescue efforts. Apologies if we start ignoring you now. 🙂

Our girls are over the moon excited. They love living in a dog pile. We get to meet her on Saturday when the doggie underground comes to Portland.

Ready to hear about “schoolgirl” now? Here’s her story…from an LA elementary grade school teacher.

“She’s a dog that was hanging around my school. She belonged to one of the students families. Then the family gave her away to someone who didn’t want her and she got dumped on the streets. So she would come visit the school every day and hang out with all the kids on the playground, and walk them to the classes. She’s great with kids! Those are pictures of her in my classroom with my students. The school I teach at called animal control and they came and got her. They took her from my classroom, and my kids cried.”

Looking for love


Happy to be surrounded by little hands
