BACK IN THE GROOVE

Is the term “Back in the Groove” outdated? I suppose there is a new line that I should be using to explain my weekend.  Just returned home from Family Church camp. We call it Reunion–as we see old friends and make new ones each year.  Had a great time and refreshed my body and my spirit.

Anyway, I guess I am rested–today after the kennel chores I took time to spend time with a number of the dogs.  Bathed little Albert–he is recovering from the mange. He looks an Akita, but seems pretty small yet.  I am not sure that the name Albert fits him—maybe A.J. would be better.  He is about 8 weeks old and is going to be a great looking puppy when he is recovered. 

I cleaned the back yard and fixed the outside shed for the puppies.  They love the stairs to their loft. We still need to fix the window with a screen, paint the shed, and run electric so they can have a fan.  All in time, I guess! 

While I was back there–spent some time with April (a lab mix puppy about 4 months old) She is very active, and shows lots of potential.  Sally Sue–a  female Jack Russell is is 3 months old. She is adorable, with a brown face and cute markings.   Judy is growing and filling out as well as Trudy. (Both look like Corgi mixes.)  Sophie was very happy to see me and followed me–sitting patiently until I petted her.  I wonder why noone has called to meet her?  She is a wonderful Rottie/Husky mix and even thought I have her listed as special needs, she gets along well.

When I arrived home I found that Shorty had been neutered–Glady’s spayed–Both Andre and Kayne neutered also.  Sometime it seems like our trips to the Vet takes up much of our days.  Getting back to Shorty–he is a Chiweenie! I am not sure how you spell it, but a chihuahua and dachshund. He is quite the character.  Both him and Oscar (a poodle/chihuahua) like to argue over who can get closer to me. 

I could go on and on about the day spent with the dogs, but my bed is calling for me.  I hope that those out there that read my blog will take time to look on petfinder.com for more information about the dogs. This picture is Judy–she is a little bigger now.Image

Speaking of Lucky—is he really lucky???

Lucky is still at 12 Hills and we are wondering why. He is so pretty, has a great personality and loves people.  Lucky had a rough start as a baby, but pulled through a bout with dehydration and parvo.  He has been neutered–had all his vaccinations and ready for a family. He weighs around 75#. He is brindle in color and has a coat that feels like silk.  He doesn’t seem to shed like some of the others,  Image

If you are looking for a great dog and like Lab mixes  Lucky may be just the right do for you family.

Spray Away–Chuck!

This warm weather gave us a perfect opportunity to spray the doggies at 12 Hills.  It seems that as the weather warms the dogs are beginning to shed and scratch.  Just to be on the safe side we thought a day of spraying (to kill any critters) was in order.  Of course, everyone was indignant about this wonderful opportunity.  But they soon dried off and were rolling in the dirt again. We had some volunteers come on Saturday and many received a good brushing out.  Big Andy was brushed, but has lots more to shed—oh, right, that’s another story.ImageLucky–and Gizmo  are not happy.Image

So, maybe the next step will be baths to get off the dirt that they rolled in.
