Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
Bailey is a senior girl looking for her forever home. Doesn't she have a sweet face? Don't worry about her gray muzzle. It would scare you to know how gray I'd be if it weren't for the skills of my hairdresser. And just like us older people, older dogs make pretty awesome companions.
October is National Adopt a Shelter Dog month. If you're considering adding a dog to your family, please visit a shelter first. You'll find dogs of all colors, shapes and sizes. Young and old. Purebred and Heinz 57. Out there somewhere is the perfect fit. He/she is watching the door right now and waiting for you.
Sweet Bailey is one of many dogs available for adoption at Five Acres Animal Shelter. Here's a link to dogs at the shelter who want nothing more than a family to love:
Meanwhile we continue to have lovely weather. I think it's our reward from surviving an obscenely hot and dry summer. Whatever the reason, I'm loving the cool temperatures. It feels great to eat a bowl of chili and lounge around the house in a well-worn cotton sweatshirt.
And can you think of a more perfect time of year to take a long walk with your four-footed best friend?
