For those who aren't longtime readers of this blog, Ode was a badly abused puppy with his ears burned off when he arrived at Red Lake Rosie's Rescue. Pet Haven fostered him and found him a home.
Looks like another season's gone by and I missed the chance to make it up your way to meet you and see your RLRR "digs". As for not sending adorable e-fotos of Ode and her new friends -- well, no excuse there! Thought i'd start the e-foto-sending with my most recent one -- a pic of Ode + Shamus, who's owned by the proprietors of Once Upon a Crime Bookstore here in Minneapolis. Pat & Gary are very nice folks I met while walking one of my "daycare doggies" (my fledgling dog-walking biz is gaining in numbers -- I'm up to 9 now!).
ODE & SHAMUSShamus, just Ode's age & size (2ish, around 50 lbs), is one of those dogs who kept getting returned to a shelter in KY and had lost his adoptability standing there, so a MN shelter stepped up to keep him alive, and Pat & Gary found & adopted him. Makes me feel proud/happy to live in a state known for saving animals deemed unworthy by other states -- and RLRR is at the top of my admired-rescue-agencies list!
The first evening I had Shamus here, he ripped down the already-rickety outer screen door of my porch (due to separation/abandonment issues) when I went inside for a minute, but I've become smarter and now just prop open the outer front door so both he & Ode can come & go as they please. It's good for Ode, too, to learn to share her mama & her space!
xxoo, pam c, Ode & ladybug
