(All three Otis Photos by Clifton W. Dye)
Even though he's a big guy (78 pounds) and has sort of scary looks, his new daddy describes him as having "the head of a monster and the heart of a marshmallow."
I don't know about that: I think Otis is incredibly handsome. This big gray beauty doesn't know it yet, but he's landed in a fabulous home. His owners are committed rescue-dog advocates, and they both have hearts of gold:
Then on Sunday the 15th of February, I volunteered at a big animal-adoption event. We had about three times the normal amount of dogs, and multiple agencies worked together to make the event a success. There were red-heart balloons, and big banners and tents all over the park to attract the public's attention. There was even a doggie kissing booth.
The event was a huge success; something like 17 dogs found homes! This is "Charcoal," the poodle mix I was handling. His new owners weren't out looking for a dog, but all the hoopla attracted their attention:
They may re-name him "Charlie," but whatever his new name will be, he's a lucky boy.
As usual, we had a variety dogs looking for their Forever Homes, from little dudes like Jon Paul, here:
To big, gorgeous guys like Zachary. Check out those mesmerizing eyes!:
(Doesn't Karl Loveys take the most wonderful dog portraits?)
I have never, EVER seen two Basset Hounds at the same adoption event. They are just such a rarity. But actually, this past Sunday, there were THREE! I could only snap two of them in one photo, however:
All three of the Bassets were turned in by a single owner. All three were adorable:
Those ears: It's like they have their own ZIP code:
Also on Sunday, another couple we're friends with adopted a French Bulldog. Meet "Stella," 10 weeks old. She is such a wigglebutt it was very hard to get her to hold still for a portrait with The Hubby:
We brought her some Nylabone chew toys, and she went right to work on one:
Aaaand then, for variety, she nommed on her Daddy's Crocs sandal:
What a scamp! You couldn't pay me to have another puppy:
But it's great fun to visit one who lives nearby.
Now I must go. I've got to make a playdate to meet Otis, the big, ol' lump of love packaged in a Pit Bull wrapper.
Happy days! Lucky pups! Love ‘em all!ReplyDelete
P.S. Bill and I fell in love with an adorable brindle Frenchie at a puppy class we were observing (just for fun, to get a puppy fix -- no more puppies for us!) -- His name was Max, and was a real kick: laid back, smart, old soul we think.Delete
