Little Lilly might have a new home soon.
Are you as shocked as I am?
Well I am not getting my hopes up, but they are fantastic. The woman who is adopting her is really in love with her. She loves her eyes, and her soft coat, and even the fact that Lilly barks at her BF. She thinks its cute that Lilly will have to warm up to him. She understands Lilly’s issues… My mother and I are trusting Samantha to do the homecheck, ALONE, so that we don’t stress Lilly out. We still have to approve the application but I have a good feeling…. And so does Lilly. She likes her. Which is weird. She never warms up to people that quickly.. In a matter of minutes she was showing off her tricks.
So anyways, no more talking about Lilly getting adopted cause it makes me super excited!!
On to Oreo!
Lap Dog: Looking for Forever Home (Would do well in an Apartment!)
The tiny houseguest Eric entertained on Saturday night and Sunday. She is so cute.
She gets along with our dogs. She already LOVES Eric, when he left to go pick up lunch she waited for him by the door.
I’d be surprised if she was over 40lbs. She is so petite.
Adoptable Oreo participated in a 5k today!!!
She was so tired!!!
I am absolutely in love with this little lady!!!
Oreo was at the Insane Barking Bash Blowout yesterday, she did very well but she is still searching for her forever home.
Speaking of the Insane Barking Bash Blowout, IT WAS AMAZING!!!
Remember Flea Puppy?
SHE WAS ADOPTED!!!!!
And Lilly and a Shelter Pup named Moxie (I named her, and the family loves the name!!!) are both application pending!!!
June Bug is still looking for her forever home!!!
‘Fill out the application and give me some treats!!!!’
And on top of all of that we raised some awareness, some money and generated some interest in some of our animals.
The possibilities for the dogs we pull from the shelter are endless. Some could go on to be therapy dogs, Canine Good Citizens, and they will all go on to be beloved family members who are cherished in the lives of their humans and our rescue.
Remember, when you adopt an animal you make a commitment, and they put their lives in your hands. The commitment you make is bigger than any other, including marriage. Some people get mad when I say that but its true. Think about it:
An animal that needs you to: Feed it, Socialize it, Walk it, Let it outside, Love it, Pet it, Teach it, Train it, Bond with it, do all the things it can’t. You are the only way that animal can see the outside world. You are the highest authority in an animals eyes. You are the only connection to the world outside their home. Without you, they would all simply die in shelters, alone, terrified, and unsure of the world that could of been. Some still do, and my heart weeps for them, it enrages me to think people can’t see the possibilities. They can’t see the true potential each animal has.
Marriage: Love, Blah blah blah, 2 people who are capable of living with/without the other, I understand this is a bond, I understand it is a big step to commit unconditional love to another person. (Also animals don’t have opposable thumbs like spouses do.. So animals need you to do a lot of can opening, door opening, and all the other fun opposable thumb stuff they can’t do)
But committing unconditional love to an animal that I guarantee at one point (if not multiples times) in its life will: Throw up on you, throw up on all the things you love, eat anything and everything, cost you tons of money for blockages and illnesses, crap all over your house at first (and when they are sick or cant hold it), pee to mark things, or pee because you weren’t paying attention. You have to love that animal, animals don’t know right from wrong (although sometimes I think they do and tear things up to spite me…) they need you to love them, teach them, and forgive them. They are like children, but these children aren’t just in temporary homes until they “age out” of the system or are adopted. They are at risk of euthanasia, the ones that are in foster are at risk of their fosters giving up on them, returning them or moving last minute and not being able to take them with them. YOU hand pick an animal. Marriage is a big commitment, so is having children, but adopting a dog or cat is the biggest commitment you can make. Its the commitment to save a life, and be that animals superhero.
With that being said I wish people would stop surrendering animals and realize they need to honor their commitment.
And to end on a less “bah humbug ” Katelyn is mad moment, heres an adorable picture of my baby… Yes I adopted him!
And a cute picture of Missy, Eric’s Baby Girl!
(she is a little upset that adorable/adoptable Oreo is here)
