A Fun Afternoon With Friends & and Family!

Today we had a visit from Stevie, Ashleigh, Dawn and Grandma Lynn. Stevie from Stevie’s Furry Friends, and his family have been at our rescue several times. What a blessing they have been for us.  We have received collars, dog beds, shampoo, biscuits, dog food, etc.  Today they came to make a fun video with the dogs and our granddaughter Kariden was here to meet them.  She made friends with Ashleigh and received a bear hug from Stevie when he left.  They seemed to have fun as they helped point out the dogs that were available for adoption.They left us more collars, biscuits and other goodies. The dogs loved the toys they received–especially the big ball and rope toy.
We have such great friends and volunteers.  What would we do without you all???  Thanks Stevie for bringing your family for the afternoon.  Tell Grandma that Roxie is missing her.

Getting the Bugs Out????

What about bugs??? Shouldn’t be any in this cold weather. No, I am talking about our new 40′ x 60′ dog kennel. We have most of the kennels in, and yet still more work to do with plumbing, ventilation etc.  It is wonderful though, and the dogs are enjoying the heated floor. Actually had to turn the heat down, so they wouldn’t be too warm. We are learning about the changes that need to be made as we go, and it is going to be a great place for the dogs at 12 Hills Dog Rescue.

Of course most of the dogs that we moved are wondering “what is going on?”  It will take a few days for them to recognize their kennel spot in the new building.  What a blessing it has been to have good friends, good workers and good family.  They come through when you need them.  I will include a picture soon of the inside as well as the finished outside.

Hey, we actually have room for our tractor and cars in the machine shed now.  Things have a way of working out—and I am sure we will get all the little bugs out of the new kennel soon.

We are Blessed

This is the time of the year that we look back and count our blessings. 12 Hills has had so many blessings this year, it is hard to count them all. We have been blessed with so many wonderful, loving dogs to care for. Dogs that needed love and some special attention., sometimes medical.  We have had some great volunteers this year. From a local 4-H club to a young Mom who did our photography and this blog. Family–who pitch in weekly to help in various ways. Note the picture of our granddaughter who worked almost every day this summer. Friends have made posters, given supplies. Then there have been those who have adopted our dogs–shared their talents with homemade blankets, kerchiefs, and even monies to help purchase supplies.  Last our new fixture, Brenda . . . she works over her allotted time and goes the extra distance for each one of the dogs. Yes, we have had our hands full.  Sometimes, we wanted to even throw our hands up—but in the end, WE ARE BLESSED!
