Thanks for all the great words of encouragement on the Joey situation...I'm feeling so much better now. You pups always set me straight. I was kinda worried about Joey, but everydoggie was right, I went home with my Mom, not Joey. I think I'll keep him around as a friend...but that's it. He's NOT coming home with us...not ever.
Now on to some wonderful news...Fei and Eve reached their goal of 25 DWB'ers for their pledge - Woo Hoo!!! My Mom and I also pledged so I thought I would tell you about the organization that we donated to. It's called Wonder Dog Rescue...how fitting, right? I'm Wonder Ruby, they are Wonder Dogs...I'm a Boston Terrier...they rescue Boston Terriers...you get the picture.
Wonder Dog Rescue is located in San Francisco (can you believe there is no BT rescue in Sacramento!). Although they specialize in BTs, if they have the space they will take any doggie in need. Here's what they do...
I love that...they want their adoptions to be life long!!! Isn't that the way it should be???
We are a dedicated volunteer group working primarily out of the San Francisco Bay Area. We've saved blind and deaf dogs, puppies as young as two weeks and seniors as old as 15! Each animal has so much to offer... and we learn so much by opening our hearts to these deserving companions.
When a dog comes into rescue he or she is evaluated carefully. Some dogs have particular needs, and receive medical care or behavior modification. We work with each dog, giving them the love and structure they need to move onward.
Dogs stay in foster homes until they are matched with their ideal family. We want these adoptions to be life long, and take this very seriously!
When me and my Mom learned that the pledge had been successful, Mom went right over to the Wonder Dog web site, whipped out the magical plastic card she has, and made our pledge. But Mom thought it was really important that Wonder Dog knew WHY we had donated. So my smartie-pants Mom sent a really nice email to them. She was kinda worried they would think she was a little crazy because she said that I had a blog (now why would THAT be crazy - look at how many of us doggies have blogs! ). But the nice lady from Wonder Dog wrote back at how appreciative she was and how cool it was that we all had blogs. She even sent me this really cool thank you card...
Make sure you go check the card out...the doggie talks and his eyes follow you...kinda creepy - but very cool!
Anyhowl...I'm very happy that we were able to help...even if it was just a little. Mom said that she would stay in touch with the Wonder Dog lady, Linda (I think I'll just call her Wonder Linda!) and help when we can. I'm so glad there are very kind and generous people out there who are willing to help all these poor pups. Thanks Fei and Eve for thinking of such a great thing to do!
