Scout Gets a Home!

Ray adopted Scout!  All summer long I've been walking dogs past Ray's "Invictus Forge" blacksmith artist's shop with the dogs, and he's never really been interested in any until he saw Scout.
You wouldn't think a six and a half foot guy in a kilt would like a dog like this, but it was love at first sight!  Ray will be taking Scout, now Zip, to his shop every day so we'll be able to see him any time.  A match made in heaven~

It Must Be Spring!

Daffodils are blooming . . .
Chickadees are building nests . . .

Pansies are looking good . . .
And Prancer is fattening up for his trip to the West Coast!

A Tribute To Helga

Helga was my first foster for Mike, and we both loved her so much she had to become part of our family. Her favorite song was an old Neil Young song "Cinnamon Girl" which she insisted the words be changed to "Cinnamon Chow".  As it goes, I wanna live with a cinnamon chow, I could be happy the rest of my life with my cinnamon chow!
This is the day I picked Helga up from the Fulton County Shelter.  She looks a little stressed, but I see a sparkle in her eye, she knows she is being saved.
Helga loved our marshes and took it upon herself to have a "spa day".  If only I had my camera with me.  She sat in the middle of the marsh which was a big mud pit and it must have felt so cool and refreshing, but by time I got back with my camera she was coming out.  This is the end result!
The redheads were best friends!  This is Helga and Geisha.
I have made such wonderful friends at the rescue who understand what it feels like to lose a beloved pet.  We only had Helga a short nine months.  It seems so unfair.  Thank you to family and friends who cared enough to send beautiful flowers, cards and a book I'm sure I will read over and over again because I know I will be going through this the rest of my life . . . I will always have a family of chow-chows!
                                                 We miss you, Sweet Helga!
