Finding a Home

posted by Sharon July 10, 2014 16 Comments

Have you ever been to a dog show? We found a delightful one following the Fourth of July parade in the mountains. Like the Westminster dog show, handlers walked the dogs in a circle. Unlike the Westminster dogs, these were all mutts. Adorable, one and all. Some of them were looking for a home.

Here’s beautiful Tashi. She won best in show last year.

Within days she found her new home. Now her owner has her in special training. Tashi gazed up, alert for new commands

We enjoyed our time in the small town, where the mayor is a dog. We greeted Mayor Max and deputy mayors Mitzi and Mikey. The people here take their animals seriously.

While we found a dog show, dogs found new homes. On our way back to our car, we wandered through the shelter dog area. And found happy news.

It was the best day for Snoopy.

What a great way to get dogs adopted, and the mayor’s tie is too cute!

We’ve never been to one, but I bet my kids would love something like this. But then, of course, they would beg for more pets! ๐Ÿ™‚

Great idea to find homes for dogs. Unfortunately I have to stay away, far away from events like this – otherwise I might take home all of them ๐Ÿ˜€ But we do not have the time and space at this point ๐Ÿ™
