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!
What happened on the Rescue Dog Blog this week? Well, for starters I was on a short vacation. What did we do with Wiley? Check it out here. When we returned we shared more pictures from our Oral Fixation Photo Share. On Thursday we saw a beautiful red merle Australian Shepherd probably mixed with something else somewhere along the line. Nina is a real beauty, and I used her as a poster girl for adopting instead of buying. Finally we closed out the week with Feel-Good Friday, and our emphasis was an inter-species bond between dogs and ducks.
Now, I have a big announcement to make. . . we have a super-special theme week coming up on the Rescue Dog Blog. It will kick off tomorrow and last all week, and I think it's going to be a lot of fun! The above picture is a hint.
We will suspend the Oral Fixation Photo Share until the following week so you have plenty of time to get some fun pictures to me of your pets with their mouths full. And speaking of pets with their mouths full.
