This is a rescue dog! We found Wiley at a no-kill animal shelter called the Hillside SPCA in Pottsville, PA. He joined our family in July of 2011. Rescue dogs make the best pets; I would know. My family has had pound puppies my whole life and I am a better person because of it. This is a place we can share our stories and spread the word: get a rescue pet!
post is short. Yesterday was the opening day of PSAC (conference) games
for the Kutztown University Golden Bears baseball, of which Hubs is an assistant coach. I had hoped to do a super-fun post about baseball,
maybe doll Wiley up in some KU gear, etc. Unfortunately my husband has
been battling a sinus infection for two weeks, and he was just too sick
to go. He was trying to talk me into it, but I was a tyrant and put
my foot down. In ten years I have never seen him miss a conference
game, and we were all disappointed. Good news though: they won both
I decided to try to take Wiley for a bath on my own since we had to
cancel our game plans. It’s definitely not a one-person job, and I have
no pictures this time because believe me I had my hands full. As a reward for
Wiley, since he shook from head to toe as soon as we pulled into the pet
store parking lot, I got him another squeaky tennis ball. That is
definitely not my favorite toy for him but he really loves them. Look how eagerly he’s awaiting it ---->:
hair is quite funky when it’s not completely dry but I just couldn’t
force him to endure the blow dryer anymore. It’s his least favorite
part, and that’s saying something.
He was a good boy the rest of the
time in the store but as always, he’s happiest when he gets home. Check
him out in the picture below, sleeping on my legs on Friday night. Yes,
they were completely numb.
Today I'm worn out from my nurse duties and my solo bath experience. However, I'm not too tired to remind you to take some
time to get your rescue story to me if you haven’t yet. Wiley and I
really look forward to reading and sharing them!
